Episode 51: Speakers – Stop Making Sales Calls! Here’s How to Get Hirers to Call YOU

You can get hired for speaking engagements by contacting event planners and hosts directly, but you can get them to call you AND grow an audience (and your credibility) at the same time.

When you pour your knowledge and expertise into books, articles, blog posts, videos, or a podcast, you’re creating a body of work that will support you for years to come.

With the right positioning, promotion, and publicity, you can build a following of people who love what you say, admire what you do, and buy what you sell.

You’ll also prove the relevance of your message, mastery of your craft, and your ability to engage an audience – and that’s what event planners, hosts, journalists, and the media love to see.

So, to get your phone ringing and your private messages pinging, listen to this episode and learn: what people looking for a speaker are actually looking for, 5 powerful ways to share your expertise, your key to connecting to ideal clients, the one thing your copywriting MUST have (and it ain’t SEO), who’s watching you on social media, 3 more ways to spread your message … and more!

One of the best ways to close sales is when people call YOU – when they seek you out.” – Pam Perry
