HARD TRUTH: You Could Be a GREAT Speaker With GREAT Marketing, and Still Be Losing Bookings Like Crazy

What might be missing? Take a look at this...

DELIVERY is only the finished product that everyone sees.

You watch a speaker with great delivery and you think - "Aha! Now SHE'S a great speaker. No wonder why she is booked solid. I should work on my delivery and then I'll be booked solid too."

So you study her style. You model her humor and her stage presence and her vocal technique. Her fancy Power Point slides inspire you to improve your own. You go to Toastmasters, you hire a coach, and you practice your butt off.

But still you have no gigs (and now you have no butt.)

If only people knew how good you've become. If only more people saw you speak!

So you learn all about MARKETING AND SALES. That DOES put you in front of some audiences, but you never seem to gain any momentum. Chasing the next gig always feels like a struggle. A grind.

The 5 Keys to Staying Consistently Booked

I've spent a lot of time figuring this out. Not only for myself, but for my hundreds of students around the world. I noticed that some of my speakers took off like rockets, while others floundered. Even great speakers with solid marketing plans and important topics couldn't get booked.

That's when I discovered that there's more to it than that.

There are five pieces to the puzzle of staying consistently booked. Some are easy. Some are not. Some are obvious. Some took me YEARS to fully grasp the full importance of. But they are ALL essential. Speakers who leave even one piece of this puzzle out will struggle to stay in high-demand.

So, what are they?

1. TOPIC SELECTION: This is a make-or-break decision for you. Pick a topic no one cares about and nothing can save you. Choose something that you're not passionate about and everyone will smell it from a mile away. Stray outside your areas of expertise and get ready to be publicly embarrassed.

2. CONTENT DEVELOPMENT: So, you've picked an in-demand topic. Good for you. But guess what? You'd better have something valuable to say about it. Unique, even. Otherwise, no one is going to care. You won't get booked if you're not giving anyone any value. Your message needs to be gooooood.

3. PACKAGING & POSITIONING: THIS!!! Almost NO ONE gets this right. This is absolutely the biggest difference-maker that I see. You can have a great message about a great topic, but if you can't COMMUNICATE to decision makers clearly and concisely, then you're sunk. If you can't prove why YOU are the perfect messenger for your message, then you're sunk. You'll be passed over and the gig will go to someone who can.

What makes a great program title? What makes a great answer to the question, "What do you speak about?" Does a decision maker see your packaging and automatically think of you as a PERFECT FIT for their audience?

4. MARKETING & SALES: Obviously, if no one knows about you, they can't ever book you. Speakers who don't put their packaged and positioned selves in front of enough decision makers simply won't succeed.

5. DELIVERY: If you lose the audience two minutes into your talk, then NOTHING else matters. Of COURSE you need to be engaging. Of COURSE you need to create an experience for the event participants. You're a professional and people expect not only to be informed, but also to be entertained. Your delivery better be spot-on if you want to be highly-bookable.

INTRODUCING: The New Course Designed SPECIFICALLY to Turn Out Your Next Highly-Bookable Speech...

This Course Covers Everything...ALMOST

"Topic Selection?" It's covered in two entire sections. One section for those who have no idea what to speak about, and one for those who want to be sure that their topic is highly-bookable.

If you don't yet know what your ideal topic is, then I have good news. The 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. The GSG Topic Selection Process involves 20 lessons and action items to whittle your list down to one. You'll have the clarity, focus, and confidence that you need to become highly-bookable.

And speaking of clarity...

Wait until you see the clarity document.

By the time you finish the content development and packaging lessons in this course, you'll have a single piece of paper worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to you.

Not a one-sheet. Nooooo, not that.

Rather, a fill-in-the blank worksheet that simplifies and effectively communicates exactly what your signature speech is.

You'll have...

  • A KILLER 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 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.

  • And my favorite...the PERFECT answer to the question, "What do you speak about?"

So, with those lessons and others, you and I are going to hit the "Content Development" and "Packaging and Positioning" pieces pretty hard.

There's also an entire training section on "Delivery" styles and techniques to practice. It's like a dojo for developing your speaking chops. I think you'll find my advice refreshing and you won't have to count a single "um" or "ah."

So, What's NOT Covered in the Course?

Marketing and sales.

I get it. A great speech IS without a doubt your best marketing piece BY FAR. Great marketing gets you booked, but only a great, well-packaged speech gets you referred and re-booked.

But giving you a highly-bookable, well-packaged, signature speech is where this course ends. It's 100% focused on making you absolutely crush it on stage or on screen, virtually (yes, the course was designed with virtual presenting in mind as well.)

If you want to learn the marketing side, then that's a different course.

Having a Highly-Bookable Speech Changed Everything for ME

 

Before having my highly-bookable speech, I still managed to get gigs by using consistent and creative marketing. That story is pretty well documented in my speaker marketing course.

I would get the gigs, I would do the gigs, and I would get RAVE reviews.

In fact, my reviews were so good that I started getting cocky. I offered a guarantee that if I wasn't the HIGHEST RATED speaker at the event, then I wouldn't accept the check.

And time and again I'd be the highest-rated speaker at the event.

This isn't to boast. It's to illustrate this very important fact...

A great speech isn't necessarily a highly-bookable speech.

Hear me on this...

Because even though I'd KILL it on stage, I still had to fight and scrap for every gig. Even repeats, referrals, and spinoffs were a struggle for me to generate consistently.

You can't deposit standing ovations into your bank account.

 

But Then I Met Neil...

The night before a gig, I had a coaching call with Neil Gordon. He made a suggestion for a simple way I could tweak my talk. I did. His idea added just one of the components that makes a speech highly-bookable.

That's all it took.

It was like adding nitric acid to glycerin.

A total gig explosion.

I still got the same standing ovation and the same rave reviews. Audience members still gave me the smiles, the high-fives (this was pre-COVID) and asked me for my autograph.

But they also wanted my business card.

I remember a line of people waiting to press their business card into my hand and BEG me to contact them.

I've never seen so many people DESPERATE to work with me.

I ended up immediately booking 9 different spinoff gigs for $86,500 plus travel and expenses.

Those gigs turned into more gigs and that one highly-bookable speech has taken me around the world and put hundreds of thousands of dollars into my pocket from speaker fees alone.

Same content. Same speaker. Same style. Packaged differently. Boom. Wildly different results.

I'm not so cocky anymore. There's always something new to learn.

My Students Started Having Similar Experiences

I saw the same pattern over and over again with my Get Speaking Gigs clients. I could teach them every marketing and sales trick in the book, but if they didn't have a highly-bookable speech, then their results were lukewarm.

But when we combined those marketing strategies with a highly-bookable, well-packaged speech - watch out! Their paid bookings were dramatically higher in quantity and fee than those who didn't have a highly-bookable speech.

I love this story from Alan Samuel Cohen...

"Got two speaking requests already from my last speech. One to speak at Deloitte, and one for a PR agency in NYC. Not bad! There were only 12 people in the audience. LOL!"

And this one from Will Baldry...

"I can honestly say that I have more leads and interest from that one speech than from the whole of the last couple of years combined."
