Sponsorship for Speakers... the untapped revenue source most speakers haven't thought of yet!
Speakers...imagine being able to accept "no fee" speaking engagements with the perfect audience, because you have a corporate sponsor who will cover your full fee. Or, having copies of your books/products sponsored for every person in the audience at your speaking events... no more selling books/products one at a time. How would your speaking business benefit from having your printing, marketing, clothing and your favorite shoes or accessories paid for/provided by the brands you love. How many more people could your message reach through the support of corporate sponsors promoting you and your message. Sponsorship is a marketing relationship and speakers have great value to sponsors looking to connect with the audiences you are in front of and serve. There are billions of dollars available in sponsorship... the trick is knowing and communicating the value you bring to sponsors, who to contact and what to say, how to build sustainable relationships with brands, and, having confidence to implement the exact steps in building sponsorship to your speaking business. In this webinar you will learn how to identify your value, how to find sponsors and who to approach, and, what to say and send to sponsors to get a yes!
