I posted this back in March and wanted to repost it with some updates, since it’s particularly relevant given what’s coming up in my training schedule.
Networking has it’s place, for sure, but can you imagine what your business would look like if you got as many or more leads, prospects and even clients in 30 minutes public speaking as you do in thirty days networking?
That’s just the tip of the ice berg. A world of possibility opens up when you share your message from the heart with the business savvy to serve more people more effectively with less effort.
Here are the Top 10 Reasons to Public Speak:
- Gain instant status – Become known as the “go to” person in your niche.
- Gain instant credibility – Become the expert in your field.
- Increase your know, like and trust factor – leading them to buy from you.
- Go from pursuing to being pursued – No more chasing prospects.
- Grow your tribe – Increase your fan base and increase your bottom line.
- Increase sales – Being in front of a group vs. 1:1 yields higher conversion and revenue.
- Instant product creation – Every speaking opportunity is a potential book, CD, DVD or other marketable product.
- Leverage your marketing time and budget – It’s a lot more efficient to present to groups vs. 1:1; it costs nothing to implement; and return on investment is high.
- Open bigger doors – The more status, credibility and confidence you have, the more opportunities flow your way.
- Become the “Bigger You” you were meant to be – When you step into the spotlight, your sphere of influence expands.
Last but not least, speaking is REAL. It gives you an opportunity for authentic, face to face connection with those you wish to influence. It gives you a chance to touch people’s hearts and minds with your humanity and expertise. And it gives you a chance to help solve their problems with your solutions. They get the help they need and you get to prosper.
If you feel a calling to step into the speaking arena to impact, influence and grow your business, you have a prime opportunity right now. Or, if you’ve been speaking but not getting amazing results, this is for you, too.
