Public Speaking Jobs: 3 Methods to Find 'Em Fast!

  1. 1. Public Speaking Jobs: 3 Methods to Find ‘Em Fast!
  2. 2. Public speaking jobs sometimes seem like magical, mythical things. <ul><li>To a new speaker (and, truthfully to an experienced one), trying to find actual paying public speaking jobs can be quite a chore. </li></ul>
  3. 3. There is not a lot of formal training in this area. <ul><li>Colleges don’t offer a “How to find public speaking jobs 101” course. </li></ul><ul><li>No clear indicator of who exactly it is within an organization or association who does the hiring. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Don’t Give Up! <ul><li>Try the following three methods to find your own public speaking jobs fast </li></ul>
  5. 5. Method #1: Look for Public Speaking Jobs in Your Own Network <ul><li>Chances are that you don’t have a large network of people who are looking to hire speakers. </li></ul><ul><li>However, you surely have a large network of people who you know personally and professionally. </li></ul><ul><li>They know people. </li></ul><ul><li>They also know people who know people. </li></ul><ul><li>Contact them and see if they can introduce you or refer you to someone who may be looking for a speaker like you. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Method #2: Find Out Where Your Competitor are Speaking <ul><li>There are a lot of other speakers who speak on similar topics to you, </li></ul><ul><li>At least a few of them are booked more than you and are making more money than you </li></ul><ul><li>Rather than reinventing the wheel and trying to drum up public speaking jobs from thin air, why not just see where your competitors have spoken recently and then contact those same organizations about having you speak? </li></ul><ul><li>Most groups (especially association conferences) won’t want the same speaker two years in a row, so they will be looking for a new but similar speaker. </li></ul><ul><li>Just type your competitor’s name along with “conference” or “convention” into Google, and see what comes up. Over time, you’ll get better at refining those searches to make them even more effective. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Method #3: Find Groups of Your Target Market and Go Meet Them <ul><li>If you have your topic and target niche market well defined then you should know who it is you want to meet. </li></ul><ul><li>You can be sure they have an association (often times more than one), and they probably hold monthly meetings in your area. Start attending those meetings and get to know people. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t walk in on day one and run up to people saying, “Hi, my name is Chuck, and I’m looking for public speaking jobs! Do you know of any?” </li></ul><ul><li>That will accomplish nothing but get people to hate you pretty quickly. </li></ul><ul><li>Build relationships, get to know people, find out what their needs are, and let them know what you do. </li></ul><ul><li>If it sounds like they might be holding an event or if they have a problem you can help them with, then sure, talk them about how you can work together. </li></ul><ul><li>Your first priority is meeting people and building relationships. </li></ul>
