Not too long ago I asked you to send in any questions you have about building your speaking business and now we’re going to start answering those questions.

The first question is this:

“I’m trying to figure out how to get more paid speaking gigs. Right now, businesses are finding me, my guess is from LinkedIn or word of mouth.  Do you recommend purchasing the Meeting Planner association list and cold-calling? Using LinkedIn to find meeting planners?

What are your top 3 recommendations for finding paid speaking gigs?

I have all of the marketing tools done – speaker reel, a full-length professionally shot presentation, professionally done speaker sheet, bio, and testimonials. Just need to know how to get it in front of the right people.”

(The answer is in the video)

Because you’re the smartest person in the world, you know that the number one problem speakers have is finding events. Maybe you have your marketing materials in place and you’re wondering the same thing as the lady who asked the question.

…Or maybe you just like me so much that you want to watch the video anyways.

Either way, watch the video.
