12 Areas you need to figure out if you are going to be a profitable speaker

By Douglas Vermeeren, The Speaking Business Multiplier

The title of Speaking Business Multiplier was given to me by one of my speaking students. It was one thing for me to create success in my own speaking career. We tend to create success for ourselves as a matter of survival. Often those who do amazing things for themselves are not great teachers when it comes to transferring that success to others. But I have figured out some systems that have helped others to do what I have done and help many others get on that path. The student that called me by this title was able to take his business from a steady moderate income comparable to a hobby to a full time career making over 7 figures.

I believe that you can too. Again I’ve seen it many times in the lives of my students and in other speakers around me. If you want to be successful in this business the first thing you need to do is start looking at it like a business.

As I’ve had the chance over the last 10 years or so to speak along side some of the industries top names I have seen many similarities in their business practices. I have also seen the differences in the way they do many things that make their business thrive while others experience difficulty.

img_0690I’ve worked with them and spent quite a bit of time with top speakers privately and behind the scenes. I can tell you where they invest their time and efforts to create results and most of what they do would surprise you. Why? Because you’re not doing it.

(And by the way although that’s Bob Proctor and I in a casino – that’s not where we made our money and work on our speaking business. lol. Although some people run their business by chance. We were in fact just walking through headed but some people don’t know where they are headed in their speaking business.)

Below are some of the core areas I believe need to be thought about and expanded on to create a balanced, sustainable and profitable speaking business.

Which do you think you would like to learn more about:
1)Learning and Preparing valuable content
2)Positioning yourself as an expert
3)building the right kinds of products
4)Building a sales funnel and business structure that works
5)Building an intro or preview session that converts
6)Selling from the stage
7)Finding more speaking opportunities
8)Attracting media coverage
9)Learning how to JV with other top speakers
10)How to use social media and others tools for expert positioning
11)Creating strong brand loyalty
12)Effective business structures and systems for speaking

Do you have these elements in your speaking business? Are they all there ? Are there some that are missing? Do you have questions about how to make some of these elements better?

Douglas Vermeeren – Our best self gives us our best outcomes.

leave a comment »

Often the decisions we make day to day come either from habit (the decisions that we always make without thinking) or our of crisis or necessity (urgent pressing matters that need our attention.) As a result the outcomes that we experiences and the consequences they bring pretty much keep us where we have always been or put us in a state of stress. Very seldom are accidental decisions likely to create powerful outcomes for us.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 31As decisions are the important transition moment of bring our thoughts into reality it is important that the important ones be made with care. We cannot randomly approach important issues and expect that they will take us to our best results.

Within each of us is a better self. We have caught glimpses of that person from time to time. We know he or she is there and quite frankly eager to get out. When we are our best self we feel great and inspired. We know that this best self has important contributions to make to our wellbeing and the world around us.  However to have that best-self come forward requires effort. Our best self doesn’t automatically appear unless we proactively decide to allow them forward.

Most often we settle to have our average self solve problems quickly because we are Impatient.  We allow our average self to maintain relationships because its quicker. We let our average self rush through our day because they are more or less efficient and its comfortable.

While this may work occasionally it rarely gives us the life we really want and deserve.

You will soon find that getting your best self to make decisions will make your life easier and more rewarding although it requires more effort at first.

The next time you are making an important decision ask yourself am I settling with the choice my average self is making or is my best self choosing the best path?

Warning: Mos tot the time the decisions your best self would make will take more time, more effort and more commitment. But as the old saying goes it’s better to do something right the first time than to have to repeat it.

Curing problems at your event -High Profit Speaker

Are you prepared to learn?
Speaker_Training_Systems copy 2By Douglas Vermeeren

In thinking about what to write about today I had an interesting experience that brought to my mind something that we never really talk about very often in personal development. I recently attended an event from another speaker where several of the attendees were not prepared to participate. They came in late disrupting the group. One of them had a cellphone in hand finishing a conversation as they entered. Another was completely unprepared to take notes and immediately got up from their chair to hunt the room for a pen and paper.

And the organizer was no better. They had AV troubles from the beginning. There weren’t enough chairs for attendees and people either stood at the back or tried to solve things on their own with the hotel staff. It was a really distracting place to learn. (And the tickets to this event were not inexpensive.)

As I sat in the audience I thought about how these situations could have been avoided and the entire experience improved upon. I thought to myself how odd it was that people invested to be there yet they arrived unprepared. How different is this than other experiences we encounter in life?

If you ordered furniture you’d make space for it. If you paid for a vacation you’d pack a suitcase and bring your passport. Rarely do people miss their flights, in fact most arrive early. So why don’t they do this with seminars they attend?

Rather than share all the answers that I believe I would like to open this topic up for discussion and use this as a platform to gather data so that this reading can prevent this from happening at their own events. Please share your thoughts on why this happens and how to fix it in the comment section.
