Will Speak for Food - Using Free Speeches to Attract Customers
If you want to get in front of prospective customers, and be viewed as an expert in your industry, become a speaker. Being at the front of the room gives you credibility. And you might be surprised how easy it is to get to the front of the room.
Every day, there are meetings of networking groups, professional associations and community organizations all over town. Many of those meetings need speakers. Most won't pay you, but they will give you exposure, and usually lunch, too. While the Chicken ala King may not be anything special, the opportunity to reach an audience will build your reputation and cause customers to seek you out.
Many people, perhaps including you, are afraid to speak in public. Studies have reported that public speaking is the #1 fear of most people, even ahead of death. (Or, as Jerry Seinfeld put it, at the average funeral more people would rather be in the coffin than delivering the eulogy.) The best way to overcome your fear is to start speaking. It gets easier with experience.
To get practice in a supportive environment, join Toastmasters. Members give prepared and impromptu speeches and receive feedback on their strengths and how to improve their skills. To find a chapter near you, go to www.Toastmasters.org.
What should your talk be about? It is not a commercial for your business. Give good information to help your audience solve a problem. Show your expertise, so that people who hear you will look to you as the authority on your subject. Most groups will want you to speak for 20 to 30 minutes. Structure your talk around a list of principles or tips, or talk about solving one particular problem. Don't try to cram everything you know into 20 minutes.
Have promotional materials and business cards available for the audience. Make sure everyone gets a handout to take with them. Your handout can simply be tips and resources copied on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper. Include lots of useful information (so they keep it), as well as your contact information and a little about you.
You can find groups to speak to by watching for meeting notices in newspapers and newsletters, and asking local chambers of commerce for directories of organizations. Identify the groups that include members of your target market. Then, call the contact for each group. Tell them what your topic is and that you would like to present to an upcoming meeting. It shouldn't take many calls until you've booked a speech or two. (The first time I tried this, I succeeded on my second call.) Program chairs often have a hard time filling speaking slots, so they are happy to hear from someone interested in presenting to their organization.
Speaking for free may even open up a brand new profit center for you-speaking for "fee." You will know you are ready to join the ranks of professional speakers when audience members start asking how much you would charge to speak to their group.
