Speakers Must do This if they are to be successful in 2017

By Douglas Vermeeren, The Speaking Business Multiplier

Over the years I have spent time with a lot of people wanting to grow a business in the speaking or coaching industry. More often than not those individuals remain anonymous and broke. The personal development industry is highly competitive with many people feeling that they have empowerment to offer. Many times they are right- they do have great strategies to offer and they are excellent at delivering their content either on stage or working in groups or with individuals. But these individuals seem to struggle to create a thriving predictable business that provides value long term to their audiences.  Why is that? What mistakes are they making? What is being left out?

Here are a few considerations that you should think about if you are looking to create a sustainable speaking or coaching business:

speaking-training-15

  1. You must get dialled in to the current marketplace conversation – It is essential that know what is being talked about in your niche. You much be aware of the conversation and be able to contribute in meaningful ways. You can’t rely on content or ideas that you were teaching a year ago or even six months ago. What worked yesterday won’t work today. The world is changing faster than ever before. You must know what’s happening now and strive to become a leader int he conversation. If you want to be relevant to your audiences or your students you must know what is relevant. Too many speakers develop a “signature talk” (Which is actually the old way of doing things anyhow) and then they stick to it for years. If you want to be relevant today you need preview sessions which are adaptable to the audience you are interacting with. You must know your content and the marketplace so well that you can be valuable in any setting. We have a saying among my students about content that, If you know i, you can flow it.”  You must spend time each day dialling into the conversation and expanding your content knowledge.o-speaker-business-conference-facebook
  2. You must have an effective business model with a planned sales funnel – Too often less successful coaches and speakers are flying by the seat of their pants. They don’t have a business model other than to speak and get paid or speak and sell. Alone these are also archaic models of what used to work in the 1990s. You need to recognize what business models are being used in your niche market and what others could be implemented by you to work for you. The business of your business is to become profitable. And if you are not profitable you will not get the privilege to continue. Your best business models will begin as you are able to identify where your students and you can create a transaction. The speaking business or coaching business is a business. Transactions are necessary if you are going to stay in business. (More on this later)  As for sales funnels they are essential. You need to know the map of where you are going to take each student. Even if they choose not to go the full distance with you you need to know the route. If you don’t know they will sense it and they will lack confidence in you. (We will talk more about funnels later as well.)Marketing word cloud
  3. Plan to market – The world is like a big library. If you don’t know the name of the book as you come in the door you will often have a hard time finding it. In the same way there may be people looking for you and your content right now but if they have never heard of you or what you do they will never find you. There are many easily accessible and affordable ways to market your speaking or coaching business today it can be very easy if you know how to attract clients through appropriate messaging. The challenge that many speakers have is that they don’t know who they are well enough to share it with others. Try this as an expert: Describe what you do, who you serve and what results they will get inside of one sentence. And ONLY ONE SENTENCE. Can you do it? Most speakers can’t. When you are can describe yourself in terms that are specific and clear, your audience will be attainable and near. Get clarity! The second part of marketing today is not promotion who you are – it’s actually being who you are. People expect you to teach! They want to feel as though you can deliver the results. Personal development marketing today is about building tribes and relationships instead of rushing right into a sale. People expect to get to know you and your content before they will trust you with their money.

As I have taught these 3 strategies along with a few others I have seen my speaker students gain more speaking opportunities, build great following and brand loyalty and witnessed massive expansions in their income. The speaking business is much more strategic than most people realize, but if you know what to do it can be very lucrative.

Monthly Millionaire Mentor Program coming to Winnipeg for One day special event!

Do you want to learn what it takes to become a millionaire? Do you want to learn techniques to accelerate your wealth growth in todays economy? Do you want to discover tools that anyone can apply to create a fortune? If you answered yes to any of these questions you need to be in Winnipeg, November 22,2012.

Monthly Millionaire Mentor

Douglas Vermeeren is the CEO of the Monthly Millionaire Mentor program.

After conducting extensive research into the lives of more than 400 of the world’s top achievers, much in the style of Napoleon Hill. Since that time he has been teaching others superior and little known ways for growing their wealth securely and consistently in his coaching and mentoring programs.

Vermeeren is the creator of the film The Opus (Featuring Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Joe Vitale, John DeMartini, Marci Shimoff, Bob Doyle, Morris Goodman, Bill Bartmann and others.) Vermeeren is the author of several books including the latest ‘Guerrilla’ book with Jay Conrad Levinson, ‘Guerrilla Millionaire’ and ‘The Millionaire Myth.’ (With foreword by Bob Doyle from The Secret.) Vermeeren has been highly successful helping many to take giant steps towards their financial freedom.

Why is a mentor important? And what would you look for in a mentor?

Let’s say that your objective wasn’t just to learn about growing wealth. Let’s say it was something a little more dangerous. For example consider the following question:

If you had to walk through a field of explosive land mines which option would you choose?

a) To attempt to go through alone.

b) To go with some one who also had never been through.

c) Go with a person who knew the safe way through.

d) Read a book about it and give it your best shot.

Naturally, the correct answer is C) Go with a person who knew the safe way through. Unfortunately too often people try to go through life and create a life of wealth focused on one of the other three options. Their results are  generally unproductive.

To get to the best results in the quickest time possible you need a mentor who can help you recognize the dangers, time-wasters and pitfalls that will take you off course or even keep you from completing your goals.

The Monthly Millionaire Mentor program is such a program. It is the first program of its kind that involves an ongoing relationship with your mentor and not just a one-time seminar. It is also the first program to take the participants through the process of the education all the way through to implementation. What that means is that you no longer have to wonder what to do next when you hit the inevitable challenges that will appear on your path. Growing your wealth exponentially is not a get rich quick or easy venture. If you want to do it correctly there will be many thins to learn ahead. This program ensures that you get it!

For one day only in Winnipeg, Douglas Vermeeren will be presenting more about The Monthly Millionaire Mentor program. At this event he will be sharing the 7 Reasons why you are not rich and what you can do about it.  A limited number of free tickets will be given away through the Monthly Millionaire Mentor program. If you are interested in qualifying for a free ticket for a free ticket please contact Rachel@douglasvermeeren.com and she will send you details of what you can do to get one of these tickets.

Attendees will also be entered into a draw for several door prizes including a one-on-one wealth building session with Douglas Vermeeren. for more information go towww.TheMonthlyMillionaireMentor.com
