Most Speakers Don’t Really Have a Business – Douglas Vermeeren

Most speakers don’t really have a business — Douglas Vermeeren 10X Your Speaking Business

10X Your Speaking Business DOuglas Vermeeren are you broke?
The speaking and coaching industry is one of the fastest growing industries on the planet. But… that doesn’t mean it is the most prosperous for most involved. In fact, most speakers I’ve met over my decades as a speaker are broke. I have been to all kinds of events, speakers conferences, speakers associations (likes CAPS, NSA Global Speakers Federation etc.) and Yes, most speakers are broke. and why?
Simple. They don’t really have a business. The run from one speaking event to trying to find a gig at the next. In between they are lost and struggling. The reason why is they don’t have a business strucutre for their speaking business. most speakers confuse speaking with the business. The truth is you need to put both of these elements together. Speaking + Business = Speaking Business.
Some of the elements that most speakers are missing from their business include: Customer support, Customer management, Customer acquisition, Proper content development within the framework of a business structure, sales funnels, creating proper products, getting speaking gigs, Getting speaking gigs that build your brand and are profitable and so many other quesitons they jsut don’t know how to ask.
My challenge to you: Take some time and seriously look at your speaking business. What do you really have? What systems are actually supporting you? What are you missing? How can you level up? And what needs to happen in order for you to grow?

Secrets of selling from the Stage tip#13, Douglas Vermeeren 10X Your Speaking Business

Selling from the Stage – Secret tip #13
by Douglas Vermeeren 10X Your Speaking Business

It is important to always remember that people buy emotionally and they back it up logically. Where most speakers fumble the ball is in understanding how to transition effectively from emotion to logic in the purchasing decision process. Most speakers have a clear distinction between their teaching and their pitch and this is where the sales break down occurs with most audiences.

This concept of transition when executed correctly guides the audience to keep the emotional high that got them interested and keeps their momentum high through all steps needed to complete the purchase.

One of the techniques we use in our Secrets of Selling from the Stage program to facilitate this transition is to use transition phrases which guide the audience into a state of logic without compromising the emotion.

One example of these transitional phrases leading into the logical portion of your offering is to start by sharing a date. For example, You’ve just been teaching and the emotional connection with the audience is high. you sense its time to proceed with your offer. You simply shift by saying “On October 16 & 17 I am going to be coming back to this location to teach more on the principles I’ve just shared.” That’s the transition.

So rather than leading with “I am going to do a workshop.” (That’s pitchy and the audience knows the pitch is coming.) or even worse, “I’d like to share an opportunity.” (The audience braces themselves because here comes the ask.)

Instead by starting with the date the audience begins to shift to logic by asking themselves what they re doing on the dates mentioned. After you’ve subtly got them thinking about the logistics of how they will attend you can begin to ease into your offer.

How is it some speakers can get results? 10X Your Speaking Business Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

10X your speaking business logoOver the years I have had the opporutnity to observe many speakers, coaches, trainers and mentors. It has quickly become apprarent t ome that some of htese people are masters and much more effective at changing lives than others. In fact, I have often been in awe of how they have been able to change peoples lives even with just a few sentences.
How are they able to do it?
While not all of the secrets to their success are easily accessible to all, some quite frankly are inutional things that an article could never teach. But I will expose a few big things that anyone can dial into immediately to improve their ability to lift others.
Connection — Connection with your audience is the first step to any form of influence. Your audience needs to feel like you are intersted in them as individuals. They need to know that you are competent and they can open their hearts and minds to you because you have something valuable to share. They need to feel that you are reachable. (Too many speakers today try to put themselves in a position of authority over their audiences and convince people of their worth through accomplishments and status. This doesn’t work.) Connection is a powerful principle and cannot be sufficiently covered to the depth it deserves in such a short article. I encourgae you to maek the study of connection on of you most important pursuits in your development as a speaker.
Vision of the future — I know this may sound a bit bizaare but in order for anyone to make a change in their life they must have a vision of the future and if they can’t see it you have to see it for them. In other words you have to hold the belief in the vision until they can get it for themselves. Speakers that change people are full of hope and opitimism. Seeing the future includes seeing possibilities and asking your students the right quesitons to help them see the right posisbilities for themselves. This is not something that happens by accident. Many times I have seen people just get stuck because the problems of the day weighed down so heavily that they couldn’t see any other options. freedom is about options and when options apeear there is hope.
Start with something they can do now — Despite what movies, pop culture and people make it look like sometimes change and big results are the results of big events. Big things happen after a series of small things create a tipping point. Often most speakers are not able to create change in their students because they are trying to get them to do big dramatic things. They are on the hunt to share as many “A-ha” moments as they can because it makes them look smart. Results follow action. Action follows activities that can actually be performed. The most powerful speakers start with activities that can be completed, not lofty ideals that are beyond the reach of the student. Ask what can you do, not what could you do.
While there are lots of other things that can be done to help your students, and we will most likley talk about those in future article, I want to challenge you to look for ways to implement these three as listed above. You can go a long way to being a support to your sutdents with just those few points.

The Purpose of your speaking business is positioning

leave a comment »

The Speaking Business Multiplier 1.jpgOne of the most important thing that is often forgotten about speaking is that it is really an exercise in positioning. As a speaker you have the ability, if you do it correctly, to position yourself as an authority, expert and trusted adviser to the audiences you address. Most speakers forget the importance of position and that is why most speakers are quickly forgotten soon after the events they speak at.

Position yourself as an expert begins with becoming a master of your subject. Many speakers ask me how do I know which aspect of my subject should I study? There can be so many things to learn about a subject how can you determine what should be included in your content or not? The answer is very simple. What are the problems that your audience is trying to solve. Once you discover the significant problem they are struggling with you can then structure your learning and presentations to seek out and share those solutions. Or naturally as you become highly versed in that area of your expertise you can create solutions that have never been available until you.

Positioning is power. Yet again, most speakers do not consider their speaking assignment very impactful. Each opportunity to share your perspective and voice is an opportunity for positioning. Too many speakers play it safe and keep their opinions to themselves. They avoid controversy. They avoid sharing ideas that rock the boat. They present in ways they have seen others present a million times and avoid taking risks, being creative and offering a change to the status quo. I challenge you to use all of these elements in your positioning.

Expert position is really about standing out and being recognized as unique and different. Unique and different never happens by accident. You must strategically decide who you want to be and what position you want to own. When you know this you can begin to shape your presentations to leave that impression.

decide today who you will be and what you want to be known for. then get busy and start creating it. It’s that simple.
