Your Credibility as a Speaker is Weak.

10X Your speaking business douglas vermeeren credibility.jpg

According to Douglas Vermeeren most speakers don’t fully understand the importance or process of attaining credibility. Most think that what they really need is a unique approach to present and a focus on a signature talk and personal story. While those things are interesting  they are not valuable. They also don’t build massive credibility for your brand.

In other words just telling your story isn’t enough to make you an expert. YOU MUST ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND YOUR MARKET AND DELIVER RESULTS DRIVEN VALUE. Ummm… is this important. Why the heck do you think I wrote in in caps??? It is paramount and this is what will separate speakers in the future between those who have careers and those who do it as a hobby. If you want to rise above the chaos that is the speaking business today drop the idea of a signature story making you special and valuable. It’s a lie taught by those who don’t understand the business.

What the industry supports is people who actually add value. You gain this kind of credibility by taking your speaking business seriously enough to invest the effort to understand the marketplace, the content that is occurring in the conversation, to create and think about things in an innovative pioneering way and just get good at working with people. Wow! Why aren’t people doing it?  (lazy? ego based?  unaware? I don’t know possibly all of the above. Most people think that the speaking business is easy money and they aren’t willing to do the work.)

It is work. Get on it.

The new dynamic of selling that everyone is missing – Douglas Vermeeren, Learn to Sell or Die.

LEARN_TO_SELLFinalLet’s keep this simple. You’re busy I’m bust. So everyone talks about B2C (Business to consumer) selling, and they also talk about B2B (Business to business selling) These are the way average sales people sell. They prospect by hunting those they want to sell to whether business or consumers. they then try to convince them to become transactional with them by trying to present them a multiple of reasons why in some kind of sales presentation.

Top sellers in todays marketplace understand that dynamic has really changed. Engagement is the key and considering the platforms available in today marketplace there is no excuse to not become connected to your prospect in more powerful ways. In fact, if you listen closely and become engaged in the conversations taking place amongst your prospects you’ll find the true dynamic today whether you were traditionally B2B or B2C is now C2B. In other words consumer to your business.

Because of the internet and how the world has shrunken relationship and connection has surpassed information, products and even pricing.

So the question becomes a better of understanding and engagement. What are you doing right now to build stronger relationships with your prospect in the way they want to be contacted and approached. What are you doing to approach them in ways that are not intrusive? What are you doing to give them reasons to connect with you rather than you trying to prove your worth? How are you giving value and positioning yourself as a valuable resource to them, without consideration of sales?

This is the new economy folks and if you can’t play by the new rules today you are going to die and your business will go with you.

Now get back to work.

Learn to Sell or Die – Douglas Vermeeren Sales tip 117

leave a comment »

Every objection has a solution. If you haven’t discovered that solution most likely you haven’t understood the objection. #douglasvermeeren #topseller #topsalestraining #1salestrainer #1salescoach #learntosellordie

It is important to note that there is a difference between an objection which is surmountable and a condition which is not surmountable. Conditions should be resolved at the stage where you qualify the prospect. (A condition for example is someone who reveals that they don’t have the authority to make a decision, someone who does have the money to buy your product, some who reveals they don’t have a need, etc.)

More on this in upcoming project I am working on regarding overcoming objections. Who is interested to learn more?

What is the first thing a speaker should do to grow their business? Douglas Vermeeren, The Speaking Business Multiplier

leave a comment »

This is one of the most common questions I get asked from new speakers. What should I do first?

speaking-training-15

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.
