The 4 Biggest Obstacles That Stop Speakers From Finding More Online Gigs
Here is my little anecdote about using speaking to grow your business. I think of professional speaking similar to starting out as a singer, you start off singing at the wrong venue to an audience that doesn’t really get you, you make countless mistakes and the gigs are shitty, to say the least.
Over time you learn to master the art of speaking and managing the audience the venues upgrade, finding events to speak at becomes second nature until finally, you find yourself in the flow.
The speakers that are getting booked for speaking engagements are the ones who invest time, money and make a continuous commitment to finding new opportunities on and offline. They network, are great at relationship building, recommend other speakers and have fully integrated speaking into their marketing mix. They take steps every week to make sure they secure more speaking engagements paid and unpaid.
The 4 Biggest Obstacles
The biggest obstacle – Finding Speaking Opportunities
The biggest issue by far is finding speaking opportunities, how to approach people and get booked. Not just any random speaking gig but making sure that they are in front of the right audience and that it is a good size. Way too many speakers are peddling painfully fast and giving talks at the wrong events.
Next on the list – bringing together the Online Technology
There is a ton of information online telling you how to bring the technology together the problem is in most cases it is totally over wheeling so much so that people feel overwhelmed and procrastination sets in. Let’s face it most people are not technology minded and don’t have the time or willpower to learn how to bring things together and that is totally understandable.
The downside to this is that it will have a massive impact on your lead generation, don’t worry I have a solution for you a bit further down the page so keep reading.
Further down the list than I thought is – Brand
This is an interesting one people often feel that they are not good enough and their content isn’t valuable which leads to worries about damaging their brand. I totally get this the speaking world is extremely competitive and supremely polished which can leave one feeling uncomfortable and out of place.
Time – is surprisingly last on the list
Let’s face it we can all do with more time but this isn’t just about the time we need to get organised it’s also about the time it takes to find speaking events and how long it takes to be considered.
