Electronic, 3.) Media, and 4.) Speakers Bureau. NO COLD CALLING FOR ME! I can't stand it and wouldn't do it if you held a gun to my head. With this system, cold calling will be a thing of the past for you too. You get ALL my techniques. I don't hold anything back.

You can watch DVDs 5 & 6 separately as they address the business end of speaking. Implement the recommended marketing tips as you see fit. Along the way, keep track of any questions you have. Fax or email them to me and I will address them when you get your three FREE consultations.
From the marketing end, just one of the tips on product deals, speaker fees, or electronic marketing could easily make you hundreds of thousands of dollars over the balance of your career. Isn't it worth it to take a few hours now to watch the DVDs and learn from them? . . . Of course, I would be happy to coach you personally at $1000.00 per hour on the phone or $2,000.00 per hour in person if you think that will be more efficient hahaha.
When you really get good at keeping your participants attention all day and throwing in some entertainment value to make it fun, you will undoubtedly be asked by someone to speak at some other function. You'll earn more money in an hour than you can make all week training. This system will make that day happen faster and give you the techniques you'll need to do a good job.
Also, the old style marketing methods of direct mail and telephone are becoming largely ineffective because of the expense and because no one answers their phone anymore. The electronic methods are taking over and this program directly addresses those issues in an easily understandable fashion.

Anyone who does the things outlined in this system can easily break in at $1500.00 or $2000.00. Did you know that you could actually be losing money because you are too cheap? It happened to me on the way up and I know other speakers who fell in the same trap. We thought that keeping our fees low would mean we would be booked more often . . . Hogwash! Low fees make the meeting planner think you must not be very good. Keeping your fee low increases the risk of hiring you. I won't let this happen to you.
