As a professional key note speaker, what have you found is the best way to get paid to present in front of an audience? How to avoid having to conduct free gigs and what professional materials or marketing strategies work best for getting paid presenting opportunities.
Kathleen, as a key note speaker here are somethings that You can do to market your self/ person brand/ business.
1. Treat your speaking business professionally
2. Let everyone know: use your free local media to do an article on You and public speaking. If You can secure a regular column that would be awesome!
3. Reach out and touch: reconnect with all the institutions, organizations and businesses whom have hired You in the past
4. Pick up the phone: Make it personal . Cold call similar organizations that You may have worked with in the past
5. Use Social media,
Hope this helps
Peace +Wishing You Well
