Event hosts can help you more than you know
Event hosts get asked all the time about who they know that can speak about a topic. If you are speaking at an event, make sure you talk to the host and let them know that you are open to finding more public speaking opportunities. The hosts have seen you in action and after you give a great speech they can give you a fantastic referral in their network. Make sure you are a name that comes up when they are asked by not just interacting with the host solely for the event you are working on. Set yourself up to serve the host in any other way that you can. Listen to episode 59 of Boost Your Sales and Lifestyle to hear how this technique has worked for me.
Talk to other speakers that you share the stage with
When you’re in a line-up of different speakers, get to know them by talking with them and finding out where else they are speaking. Compare notes with the other speakers and see where they have spoken before. This way you can make warm introductions to each other’s network. When you have actually shared the stage with these speakers then you can help each other out with introductions. A warm referral will get you so much further than a cold one, so make sure you help each other out. Listen to this episode to hear about this and other great ways to book public speaking opportunities.
Talk to audience members, they’re your ideal clients!
The audience is full of your ideal clients, so talk with them find out what other events they are attending. Grab a cup of coffee and get to know the attendees before or after the speeches. Getting to know your where your ideal clients are spending their time is so important to learning where you can help them. You can discover what live events they are attending as well as the virtual ones. These people can help you connect with Facebook groups, online training, or even membership groups. You need to make sure that you are giving your speak-to-sell talk with as many different audiences as possible.
