What is your business model? The Speaking Business Multiplier

What is your Business Model?

By Douglas Vermeeren, The Speaking Business Multiplier


Many speakers want to create a successful and profitable business. The reality is that there is a lot of competition out there and only a small portion of speakers are actually even able to do this full time let alone build a prosperous business. There are a few things that you can do to increase your chances for success and the first thing would be to determine the business model you are going to use for your speaking business.


Early in my business career I had an experience that may be useful to share. In my late teens I had an idea for a business. I had a family friend that expressed he might be willing to help me launch it. He invited me to assemble my materials and come see him. I decided to get busy and build a business plan. I borrowed books form the library and got busy assembling what I thought a business plan looked like. I’ll never forget the night before I was at the local Kinkos putting the finishing touches on the plan until two a.m. adding colour diagrams and images. I put in a lot of work.

The next day when I brought it for him to take a look at he didn’t even open it up. Instead he asked one question. Where are the transactions in your business? He then explained that while a business plan was useful it was only a guide and often changed with the marketplace conditions, challenges faced by the business and many other factors. However if I knew where the transactions were I could recognize what activities where going to make my money.

So today I’m not going to tell you how to build you business specifically but I want you to think about where your transactions are. Here’s a small list some of my students came up with at on of our High Profit Speaker events:

Speaking for a fee

Selling product from the stage

Be an MC

Speak at schools




Joint venturing

Training for others

online courses




study at home courses



Network marketing trainer

Selling products in stores/infomercials

Product consultant

Hosting your own events

Event consultant

Mastermind host

Speaking bureau

Writing articles or blogs

Media guest

Smart phone applications

Designing a game (ie. Cashflow)

Naturally there are many more options. I have listed only the few my students mentioned at our last event. Naturally there are many more. Feel free to pick ones you’d like to use and make a comment and list the ones that are not mentioned here.

Have enough pens
I know this sounds totally basic, but it gets forgotten a lot. I recently attended an event where the speaker had a reasonably successful close and a few dozen people headed to the back of the room to sign up for a two-day workshop. When they got there he had only three or four pens. As people waited around for a free pen they became discouraged and began to discuss more carefully the offer. The speaker rather than making himself available to answer the concerns was on the telephone at the other end of the room trying to get the hotel staff to bring him more pens. Those interested to sign up could not have their questions answered and the speaker was no where to be found. It was a really uncomfortable situation. Ultimately I don’t know how many signed up but I do know that he lost almost half of those lined up ready to do business with him.

Key: I generally try to have at least 3 pens in the room for every attendee present. People lose them, they run out of ink, they go missing on breaks. And on breaks check always check three things: The water, the notepads and the pens.PENS

Make Serious Money Today – A New Hope 

By Sanjay Patel

When it comes to making money in a coaching or speaking program you’ll find that there are a lot of different options to explore on the web. Most of them don’t really work, but they won’t come out and tell you that at all. Many of them will actually promise you the world, and when you jump in, you will be left alone to your own devices and could end up with nothing more than a few ideas and hope for a brighter future. This happens all the time, and it’s unfortunate. However, amidst the things that don’t work, there are some opportunities that should not be missed. For instance, there’s an option to make money that is making waves and it’s simply called Maximum Results.

Maximum Results has been gaining a lot of attention as Douglas Vermeeren has been talking with a variety of outlets about it. He has moved forward with helping others achieve financial glory by taking the guesswork and problems out of creating wealth streams. This is not another fly by night operation, the program is meant to help anyone achieve their dreams fast. In fact, when you start to break down some of the finer points found in the program, you will see that there is something compelling about it. Something that you will not see with other options online.

The System Works

Skeptics will immediately scoff at the notion that this might not work, but true believers are turning out in droves to not only review the program, but to highlight the finer points. For instance, did you know that you don’t need any experience? That’s right, you don’t need to be a guru or an expert, you simply need to have some common sense and basic skills. With the basics, and the guide that you will find with this program, you will be able to gain serious financial freedom. This is showcased by every single person that gives Maximum Results a try, because it really is a matter of doing what works, and ditching the rest.

When you invest time and effort into other programs, they’ll have you jumping through hoops to try and convenience you that you’re doing something great, but in reality, you’re just spinning your wheels. It was this type of nonsense that drove Douglas Vermeeren to change things up, and create something that is not only tangible, but is easy to implement.

If you are looking for an opportunity to achieve your dreams of financial independence, and you can commit a small fraction of your time to learning something incredible, than this is going to change your world. There are limited openings, but that’s only because each market will become a hot bed for exceptional monetary compensation. Instead of competing with a flooded and saturated market, you will be able to get into something that will allow you to build business and market share without interference. It’s this type of market strategy that has many people raising an eyebrow, because that means you can’t fail. Imagine working in a business sector that has a great deal of demand and no competition; that’s what you’re getting with this program.
