5 Tips to Get Started with Speaking
Speaking is a powerful marketing strategy to reach prospective clients. It also quickly positions you as an expert in your field. And it can lead to other opportunities like speaking at larger events or doing interviews with media outlets.
So how can you get started with speaking?
1. Hold a webinar
Now, this must be the easiest option to get started. You don’t need to pay for a venue, so your financial and time investment is low. You can do it from the comfort of your own home, and you can get it started right away.
2. Organise your own events
The beauty of organising your own events is that you can start immediately, and you are in control of them. The downside of hosting your own events is that you aren’t tapping into your host’s network.
3. Set up a meet-up group
Consider also setting up your own meet-up group. For example, if you are a dating coach, you could organise singles dating events as well as talks through meet-up.
4 Speak at other people’s events
Once you’ve done a few of your own talks, you’ll feel ready to speak at other people’s events. It’s best to start with small events in your local community. Meetup.com, for example, is a great entry-level speaking venue.
5. Approach larger organisations
As you are getting more experienced, approach larger organisations.
When people have an experience of you, then you can build trust quickly. At the end of your talk, tell them about your coaching or therapy services, and offer a freebie in exchange for their email address.
