HARD TRUTH: Worse Speakers Than You are Booking Five-Figure Gigs

GOOD NEWS: I Know How You Can Take Those Stages Back

Take the "Highly-Bookable Speaker" Course

Hey there, fellow idea-slinger.

Most people are afraid of public speaking. You? I bet you're more afraid of NOT speaking.

I can see why. Your message is important and people would be MISSING OUT if they never get a chance to hear it.

Not only that, but speaking also offers incredible income, lavish travel, rock-star treatment, and the ability to make an impact and leave a legacy. It's almost unfair how cool all of that is. That's why I consider myself lucky to have been in this game for over a decade now. What. A. Ride.

And now that the pandemic restrictions are being lifted, the speaking industry is booming again.

To help speakers get in front of this wave, I recently held a Masterclass titled Five-Figure Corporate Speaking Gigs From Scratch

Unfortunately, you missed it. But I'm curious what you would have thought during Part 2 when I put up this slide...

Wouldn't You Agree?

I see so many speakers out there chasing the almighty "better."

Better speech. Better web site. Better marketing. Better systems. Better prospecting. Better sales. Better social media. Better books and products. Better speaking skills.

AS THOUGH "BETTER" WERE THE ONLY WAY TO GET GIGS.

Hey, I get it. Nothing wrong with improving your craft.

But you've worked your butt off to become better and still you have no gigs (and now you have no butt.)

That's because "better" is only a piece of the "bookability" puzzle.

When you ONLY focus on getting better, then you'll end up being the best. (The best-kept secret that is!)

Deep down, you know this. You know that the best speaker doesn't always get booked. You know that a decision-maker's PERCEPTION is their reality.

So how can YOU be perceived as the obvious option? How can YOU rise to the top of the booking pile? How can YOU be seen as a peer instead of as a pest?

The answer?

Boost Your Bookability.

What the Heck Does That Mean?

In Part 3 of the Masterclass, I revealed how the high-fee speaking marketplace considers a "bookable" speaker to be four things:

  • Trustworthy
  • Relevant
  • Unique (within reason)
  • Engaging (in the new style)

That's just a list, though. It isn't a PLAN.

So, How Do You BECOME Bookable?

Here's the plan I laid out in Part 3:

  1. Decide
  2. Describe
  3. Develop
  4. Deliver

I explained what each of those words means and why they are the Fantastic Four of bookability. Take these four steps and you'll be light-years ahead of 99% of the speakers out there trying to hustle their way to the top.

NOTICE WHAT YOU DON'T SEE: There is no, "spend years speaking for free." No, "work your way up the ladder," or "pay your dues, peon!"

This is how I've been able to take my coaching clients by the hand and lead them into the Promised Land of Bookability in record time.

Let me be upfront about this process. It's not easy. It's thorough. It's painstaking. (Which is exactly why most speakers never achieve bookability.) But come on. It's possible to be thorough without taking YEARS to do it.

You can't afford years of waiting (and now you don't have to be able to afford my 1-1 coaching either...)

INTRODUCING: My Newest Online Course and Toolkit, Your Signature Speech - How to Plan, Develop, and Deliver Your Reputation-Making Speech

Those four D's I mentioned are DIFFICULT steps! There's no question about that. That's why so few speakers ever become highly bookable.

I can so help.

This program is like "Bookability in a Box." By joining (and following through on the action items,) you'll be giving yourself the gift of bookability.

You'll walk away with...

  • Your ONE focused, clear, in-demand speaking topic that corporations will pay for and you'll be passionate about.

  • Your KILLER 2-part speech title (non-negotiable if you want to be highly-bookable.)

  • A powerful, concise description of your program's core message (You DO have a core message, right? Well, you will...)

  • A single statement that clearly communicates what makes your talk DIFFERENT (but not so different that no one understands) Look, if you aren't just the right amount of different, then you're just not highly-bookable.

  • The PERFECT answer to the question, "What do you speak about?"

  • Your own personal "$50,000 piece of paper." This single document will give you the clarity, confidence, and focus to approach ANY prospect at ANY fee level.
  • The outline of your highly-bookable (and customizable) flagship speech including...
  • Your speech's opening and closing sections. It's SO important to nail both of these. And you will.

WARNING! Do NOT attempt to go out into the speaking world unless you have bookability. I've seen too many speakers waste so much time, energy, and money chasing gigs only to be rejected and neglected by the organizations who hire high-fee speakers. Anything else is just putting the cart before the horse.

If you aren't bookable, then everything else you could do as a speaker is a waste of time. Yes, outreach is a "numbers game," but if you aren't bookable, then the number at the end of your "numbers game" will be ZERO.

Please hear me on this. The BEST speaking skills and the BEST marketing plan in the world CAN'T HELP YOU if you're not bookable. There's nothing more frustrating than trying to sell something that people just don't seem willing to pay for.

However, there's nothing more exciting than having something that people practically drool over. The interest and attention (and income!) comes SO MUCH EASIER to you when you're highly-bookable.

Here's how I'm going to make sure you become highly-bookable...

Just say the word. Just tell me that you'll give me an honest effort. Just tell me that you're ready and I'll drag you - kicking and screaming if I have to - into the high-paying world of bookability.

Need help uncovering bookable speaking topics for business audiences? My Get Speaking Gigs Topic Discovery Process has never failed to turn out a slew of topics with strong potential for you. It involves seven different sources - and each one is an ocean of ideas specifically for YOU.

Or maybe you have TOO MANY topics that you could speak about. You know you're supposed to focus your expertise, but you can't decide which area to focus on. Once again, I have a never-fail solution for you. My Get Speaking Gigs Topic Evaluation and Selection Process involves 20 lessons and action items to whittle your list down to one.

What if you struggle with communicating just how valuable your message is for business audiences? My "death to one-sheets" Clarity Document will transform you from a searchlight into a beacon. No more hunting down prospects like dogs. Instead, they'll be drawn to you.

How about writing the damn speech? One that not only gets standing ovations, but also gets repeat and referral gigs? (There IS a difference) Don't sit in front of a blank screen and a blinking cursor. Use my "Only Speech-Writing Formula That You'll Ever Need" to rock every stage and every screen you ever appear on.

It's easier than you might think. Once you have clarity and focus, everything just flows from there.

And oh dear God, what about delivering it? Stage fright? Dry mouth? Sweaty palms? Shaky hands? This program is like a dojo for developing your speaking chops. The delivery style I'm going to teach you has nothing to do with counting your "ums" or making sure your hands are in inverted half-steeple position.

Instead, it's refreshing. You will feel as AT HOME on stage as you do in your own bed.

On screen too? Of course! This program was developed post-COVID and factors in the unique challenges faced while presenting virtually.

No matter what, with this course, it's as though I'll be right there with you every step of the way.

Let's DO this!
