Book More Business! Marketing for the Experienced Speaker

Ever wonder why some speakers “make it” and others don’t? It’s not a big secret. Successful speakers know the secrets of increasing productivity and profits by creating systems. Success systems that work. Systems that are repeatable.

But what are those systems and how do you make them work? During the morning session, Lois will share the inside scoop on what works and how to make that information work for you.

That sounds good, but what does that really mean? Let’s get specific about what Lois is going to teach you to do.

  • Identify target markets – the quickest way to grow your business
  • Qualify prospects faster and more effectively and be more productive
  • Answer sales objections and close more sales
  • Utilize powerful telephone and marketing skills that will really work
  •  Increase your bottom line by developing other revenue streams
  • Get to the real decision maker and quit wasting time
  • Increase productivity in your office and learn a repeatable process for getting and leveraging results
  • Develop a memorable positioning statement that is key to your business
  • Create a “kick butt” one sheet that will capture the attention of clients and prospects
  • Create secondary marketing materials that will capture attention
  • Identify the things you need to be doing to create a real business – not just go from speech to speech

But that’s not all.

After lunch, the session turns to direct coaching. Lois is so passionate about the importance of speakers having a memorable positioning statement, she will provide hot seat opportunities to as many participants as time will allow. Imagine having the guru who coaches speaking industry legends like Jack Canfield, Jeffery Gitomer, and Patricia Fripp coach you too.

Whether you volunteer for the hot seat or not, just imagine going home with a clear, concise statement defining what you really do to solve problems for your clients…so they are more than willing to pay money to you!

You may be a very experienced speaker, or you may be focused on being a very experienced speaker. Either way, who doesn’t want to book more business, make more money, and fully monetize their intellectual property?

See you on September 9th!
