4 Things to Do Today to Attract Meeting Planners

 Not too long ago a member of the Charli Jane Speakers Club asked me, “How can I attract meeting planners?”

That is the million-dollar question, right!? The answer is just as valuable.

There is no magic wand. But the results from the work you will put in can be magical.

Simply, you have to build and maintain a strong speaking platform.

How to Be a $10K Speaker: It’s Not What You’re Thinking

I’m going to be blunt with you. Because I care about you, and I know you’re very likely stuck in a traditional speaking career business model that has you thinking you already know how to be a speaker who gets $10,000 per event.

You’re working hard to build your platform, make those connections and work your audiences into a fan-frenzied following that you can tap into for the big speaking fees.

You’re probably thinking that someday, you’ll be able to ask for, and get, that kind of appearance fee while planners are lining up to book you years in advance, and smiling while they hand over those heavy checks.

There are some really good resources out there that will help a speaker get to that point, but I’ll tell you this: If you’re not famous already, or are the very pinnacle expert in your field, you will not get those kinds of fees starting out.

No planner is going to pay you that kind of money unless you’re a household name, famous, an ex-president, astronaut, etc. And, honestly, maybe not even then.

You see where I’m going, right?

That list could go on and on. But if you’re not on it already, you will need to think outside of that very narrow lane to get to your $10K payday.

Here’s the right turn you need to make. Get ready to put your blinker on.

Rank #16: 56. Squirrel Syndrome: 7 Content Creation Cures for the Distractible Speaker

Hi there!

I want to invite you to our free Facebook group "Grow Your Speaking Biz" at www.SpeakingBizCommunity.com see you over there!

Ok on to the show ...

In today's podcast #56, I’m talking about "The Squirrel Syndrome: 7 Content Creation Cures for the Distractible Speaker"

I get it.

You’re super busy, scrambling in all different directions trying to build your reserves so you can finally rest for the Winter.

Okay, well, we both know speakers don’t rest for Winter, or Summer, or for any other season, but this is a metaphor I’m working on here, so hang in there with me.

Like our friend the squirrel, we creatives and entrepreneurs can get distracted quite easily by the next thing.

We can also get stymied by decisions or overwhelmed by advice on marketing and producing, so much so, that we stop thinking about the future, and we go into survival mode.

Survival mode is not where the joyful sustainability I want for you comes from.

Marketing Material Madness

It’s nowhere near March, but it is definitely time for some madness. Time for some Spring cleaning, too - even though we’re into September now. What are we going to get to madly cleaning, you ask? Your marketing materials, that’s what.

Because let’s face it, time for some tough love here, some of the stuff you’ve been putting out there is getting tired. You’ve been riding on its momentum for far too long and it’s stagnated. You may not even realize it, either, because I get it, you’re super busy. And hey, this stuff worked for you 5 (10, 15 - yikes) years ago and got you gigs, so why change it now?
