What is the first thing a speaker should do to grow their business? Douglas Vermeeren, The Speaking Business Multiplier
This is one of the most common questions I get asked from new speakers. What should I do first?
The first thing needed when getting started in the speaking business is to determine what you will be sharing for content and who you will be sharing it with. You need to determine what will be relevant and valuable to your audience and what qualifies you to share with this group. Your efforts in the beginning should be placed on crafting a powerful message. When you feel you have that the next step will be determining how you will share it.
You can build your speech, your business or even design a product until you know what is valuable and relevant to your audience.
Discovering this message is a lot more difficult than it sounds. It can take a lot of research and work to find something that resonates with you and your audience. I encourage you to take your time with this however. As a speaker you must be dedicated to a long term game plan rather than a quick rush to get on the stage and speak. A profitable speaking business requires that you provide value in such a way that people can compensate you.
You can’t provide this kind of value until you understand the conversation surrounding your audience in the marketplace. Take the time to learn this.
One of the most valuable lessons that I learned when building my speaking business was to involve my clients. If I knew what they wanted and were willing to support it was easier to create it. How often are you talking with these people? Are you implementing their suggestions into your business? Are you bringing their questions into your talk and onto the stage?
To be engaging you must engage.
More on the subject later.
Anyways. There’s a few quick thoughts to think about for now.
