So many speakers mistakenly believe speaker bureaus and agencies should provide free (without compensation) marketing campaigns to get them paid speaking engagements... as though they worked in the same way literary agents do. Please understand that it works in reverse.

In order for meeting planners to want to book you, you first need to become a drawing card for them. In other words you need to have reached some form of celebrity status so their audience will register and pay to hear and see you. Making you famous and desired as a speaker is the mandate of public relations firms. Not speaker bureaus, and not book publicists; but
personal public relations firms who specialize in positioning and raising the profiles of specialists and authorities with one specific area of expertise.

That said... I will promote individual speakers
through 4,000 to 5,000 press and media contacts developed over 30 years. That means you will benefit from the attention resulting from a full month's promotional efforts. You'll have attention from reporters, producers, meeting planners, journalists, etc. Wouldn't it be great to be interviewed in Time, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The LA Times, O Magazine, Dr. Phil, Martha Stewart, Rachel Ray, etc. (as appropriate)?

Remember... the promotion I help you generate can result not just
in press interviews and media appearances, but also paid speaking opportunities, paid writing assignments, paid consulting assignments, and book sales. The sooner we begin, the sooner you may start receiving exposure. This promotional campaign will especially benefit speakers who have written a how-to book in their area of specialization. (I also have a special course just for book promoters and book consultants/coaches.)
Year after year I watch experts hire a book publicist, blindly follow traditional book marketing methods and work so hard to sell 3000 books over 3 years at $20 each. (Of course, you won't net $60,000 - $20,000 per year - because of the production costs, discounts, etc.)

But if those experts had been smarter and followed the nontraditional methods I advocate (and top experts use)
they could have multiplied their revenues by at least 12 times and moved those books so much faster.
