I'm the author of the book FROM THE SOAPBOX TO THE STAGE, an Amazon best-seller that reached the number 2 spot in it's category . One of the many techniques for getting hired to speak to groups is to get published. To get started on this, create an image of who your ideal audience members would be and then list the problems that they deal with on a regular basis. Then write 500-word artcles (essays) that feature solutions to these problems. Once you get the first few written, get them published. In this podcast episode, I share an unconventional way of getting your articles published.
The interviewer for SPEAKER SERVICES asked me how I usually deal with rejection when submitting my articles and I offer up an interesting idea for doing just that. Also included in this podcast is the topic of training. The interviewer asks me if speakers need training and I quickly respond with YES THEY DO, and then provide two different types of training and how to achieve them.
There is much more in this episode, including how to get hired to speak at conferences and how to effectively collect email addresses of the people sitting your conference audience. And speaking of conferences, check out my Amazon book for this very topic, HOW TO BECOME A CONFERENCE SPEAKER.
