Banner for Speaker

Started by Kent Julian. Last reply by Jen McDonough "The Iron Jen" Mar 17. 1 Reply

Jen McDonough asked me about banners I use for booths when I'm speaking. I don't do this a lot. In fact, I only do it when I'm vending because usually, when you keynote, you get a table to set up your product. If you ask for your table to be…Continue

Welcome Thomas! This is a great group for learning about what it takes to book paid speaking engagements, so you're in the right place.

I am new to the group and I am interested in speaking as a new career for me.

Several of you had sent emails looking for tips on Gigmasters so I just went ahead and published a youtube video on it - figured I could do a course on it, but enjoy helping others exceed. In this 18 minute I share how I went from $0 to earning $10,000+ worth of bookings in 1 month. I hope you find value in it and if you do sign up for gigmasters, again I would appreciate you using my referral link HERE or using my referral code which is M144627.

If anyone is interested in trying out Gigmasters, they are running a 30% off sale this week and a $50 credit for their profile promotion services if you sign up for yearly price point (can cancel if you don't like after 30 days). So far this month, I have booked four gigs and have several pending. If you do sign up, feel free to ping me afterwards and I will send you a short video of what I did to go from not getting any gigs the first 10 months to getting 4 in the last month from figuring a few things out. If you want help setting up your account, please reach out to Callie directly (cdambrisi@gigmasters.com) as she was a great help in helping me ensure I was set up in the right categories to maximize my exposure based on their search results (if you do sign up, I would appreciate it if you would use my affiliate link HERE if you sign up on your own or tell Callie to use my code which is M144627).

Speaking of the Speak It Forward Boot Camp, it's filling up pretty fast this year. Don't miss your spot especially right now while you can save $200 off registration.  Jen McDonough is one of the success stories from attending and there are many more. The boot camp is NOT just ideas on "what" you can do, we show you exactly "how" to build your brand, your website, and the exact steps to take to book paid speaking engagements. Join us this summer!

I just got my 4th paid speaking gig in 8 weeks off of gigmasters. I have been on there almost a year and have gotten NOTHING. Finally figured out a few things that have really paid off. While I do NOT recommend Gigmasters to brand new speakers as Kent Julian's marketing method is a better use of your time, energies and money (if you haven't gone to Speak It Forward yet, use your money and go to this instead), however if you have some wiggle room in your marketing budget and are already getting paid to speak, this may be worth looking into. If you are thinking of trying it out, I would love for you to use my referral link below or just use referral code M144627 when you sign up (don't feel obligated). This link is:
If you do sign up and want to do a quick 10-15 minute chat on the things that I learned that helped to get the bookings, let me know and I would be happy to share.

Speak It Forward Registration opened today and there has been a bunch of activity (6 out of 9 Killer Keynote Spots filled up).

There is still ONE $100 discount for the first person who grabs it using the discount code FIRSTALERT at checkout (this means $300 total off regular registration)

After that, all FIVE $50 discount are still available for anyone who uses the same discount code just mentioned (this means $250 total off regular registration).

This is our way of saying "thank you" to those who take immediate action to move from DREAM to DO in their desire to get booked and paid as a speaker.

If you haven't been to Speak it Forward, would highly recommend it. I have been there 4 times (may be attending a 5th time depending on if I can arrange one of my trainings in Atlanta to correspond with the July dates). If you don't know already, Kent very much over delivers in this conference and you will come away with clear ways to move forward in building your speaking business.
