Are You Building Your Speaking Business Correctly?

Are you building your speaking business correctly?
By Douglas Vermeeren 10X Your Speaking Business

10X Your Speaking Business Douglas Vermeeren are you right?

Over the last 2 decades Douglas Vermeeren have had a chance to seriously observe hundreds of speakers emerging in todays marketplace. Some of them have been quite successful and other seemed to struggle along or quickly became stagnant ed in their career. The vast majority fall into the second category.

The majority of speakers struggle to build their businesses and find more opportunities to speak. As a result they also seem to be on the brink of financial struggle all the time.

As most speakers claim to teach and share tools that are supposed to improve your situation I would say that this failure of their own constitutes a massive failure.

The failing however upon close examination isn’t always connected to their content or their ability to deliver it from the stage. Many of these failing speakers are excellent speakers and have great content.

The challenge comes down to how they’ve structured (or technically not structured) their speaking business. They lack the elements to make their speaking business work.

And there isn’t really anywhere for them to learn this. I have been involved in most of the professional associations for speakers and it’s not there. It’s basically broke speakers teaching other speakers how to do the same.

It is for this reason that Doug Vermeeren created 10X Your Speaking Business. While this article isn’t about me I should tell you why I’m qualified to create such a program:

FINANCIAL SUCCESS
In my first 6 months as a speaker I create a 7 figure business and have never looked back.

RELATIONSHIP POWER
I have joint ventured and created projects where some of the top speakers in the business have supported me. I am the producer of 3 of the top 10 personal development movies of all time. (With support from Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, John Demartini, Mark Victor Hansen, Joe Vitale, Marci Shimoff, Marie Diamond, John Gray, Bob Doyle, Morris Goodman, Mary Morrissey and many other top thought leaders.)

PRODUCT SALES
I know the formula for creating products, workshops and trainings that sell.

INTERNATIONAL SPEAKING GIGS
I have spoken to audiences all around the world. I was even awarded the distinction of youngest Visiting professor at the Wu Zhai University in China. I regularly speak today on nearly every continent on the globe. (The only ones I’ve missed are really bizarre – like who wants to speak in Antarctica?)

MY STUDENTS ARE SUCCESSFUL
Those that have used my tools have exponentially grown their speaking business. I have students that range from beginning speakers all the way to well known celebrities. I have taught (and still teach) Olympians, movie starts, top musicians, business leaders and my favourite speakers with a brilliant message.

If you are ready to get your speaking business figured out correctly I look forward to having a conversation with you. Here’s a link for some free resources to get you started http://www.DouglasVermeeren.com

Are you an Influence Seller™?

leave a comment »

Doug Vermeeren was recently just looking through social media to identify how many posts are directly related to asking for something or selling something. My goal was to see engagement. Do you know what I found? Those who actually shared value first (and often much more than once) had far more engagement than the others. This goes to prove the point that I am writing about in the Learn to Sell or Die Book – We live in a time of Influence Selling™ not transactional selling. (That is not to say that transactions don’t happen – they need to if you are going to stay in business.) But the point is that there has been a massive shift and if you don’t understand that people expect you to deliver high value and future a relationship before selling then you will struggle in this marketplace. The funniest part of this is that almost everyone agrees with me. The problem is that no one is doing it in practice. Here’s the question for you. What are you doing to create value in the marketplace right now before you ask for anything? What are you doing? #DouglasVermeeren #learntosellordie #influenceselling #sales

Douglas Vermeeren Influence Seller

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?

Engagement is the key to connecting with customers.

Recently I was witness to a sales presentation that seemed to go on and on without any kind of participation from the prospect. Instead the “rockstar” presenter took the stage and although he had the prospect smiling and laughing not once did he slow down for participation. At the conclusion of the offer the prospect thanked the rockstar for the good time but decided to pass. Looking back on the situation it wasn’t because the prospect didn’t need or couldn’t afford the product. It really came down to the fact that the prospect was not engaged. There was no connection between the prospect and the product.

So here’s the question for you today?

Connection comes from engagement. How are you getting your customers engaged when you share your offers?
