Screenshots of landing a $7,500 Speaking Engagement
Taking you behind the scenes how I landed this $7,500 speaking engagement ... see screenshots of email thread:
Delivered presentation --- busted my tail in preparation beforehand. I have an entire process for this! See inside PAID to $PEAK!! They noticed and appreciated that in the feedback to me privately. My preparation = value of delivery = referral = future speaking. I don't share my preparation process unless you're a coaching client -- sorry!
I immediately followed up --- AND sent them Amazon gift box to their address. No speaker had ever done this prior apparently.
Step 3: Received inquiry for a separate speaking engagement--- (Module 4 and 5 in full effect!)
Step 4: Notice how I structured my 'proposal' -- more informal than usual. See below:
Step 5: Their response confirmed which option they wanted -- $7,500. Interesting though, they told me their budget was $2,500! (that topic is a different blog!)
*** Lots to unpack about the business of speaking in this example I'm sharing with you ... hope you find value.

In addition to my own speaking business, I have a passion for helping and coaching speakers develop their own. Whether it's in crafting a speech, identifying target groups who can pay, and/or how to get the speaking gig itself, I can help. I've keynoted over 1,150 presentations in practically every industry you can imagine. My #1 book, PAID to SPEAK, outlines a proven model for speakers seeking to build a business in speaking.
