I get almost all of my speaking gigs the same way…
…by reaching out to people.
The problem is…how do you reach out to people in a way that gets them to respond to you?
There’s no way around it. If you’re not reaching out to people for business, you won’t get business.
How did Gary Vaynerchuk get his start? He built a list of tech conferences and reached out to them one by one.
How did Tony Robbins get his start? He reached out to sales team to come and speak to them.
How did Eric Thomas get his start? He cold called schools.
This video talks about specific things you need to be doing today if you want to get people to respond when you’re reaching out to them.
It’s simple, but it works.
Almost all my gigs (especially the higher paying ones) have come from reaching out to events rather than ‘hoping they see my content’
