With Darren LaCroix and Ford Saeks
I do not envy a meeting planners’ job in the slightest. They have to find and book quality talent, organize an entire event, fill seats, and ensure that everything runs smoothly. On top of all of those details, if there are hiccups along the way (and there almost always is) meeting planners have to stay calm and collected in order to get things back on track. It’s enough to drive a sane person cuckoo for cocoa puffs.
So how can you help take some of that stress off of a meeting planner while also increasing your likelihood of getting booked? By utilizing your most valuable asset, your list!
Inside GetPaidtoSpeak you hear us talk about building your list and how to leverage it to get more bookings. One of the best ways to increase your chances of getting booked is to solve a major problem for them….filling their empty seats with an enthusiastic crowd. When you leverage the list of your biggest fans, meeting planners take note of your credentials while also viewing you as a major asset to them. This can set you apart from the other speakers they may be speaking to, and could potentially get you booked time and time again.
We are excited to announce that we will be rolling out a weekly tip for our Get Paid to Speak community to help you on your journey as a speaker. Be sure to stay tuned each week for tips from the pros on how to build your speaking empire! Check out this one that we posted to our Facebook Page today!
