Getting Paid Association Bookings There is one negative personality element that many professional speakers have in common; a distaste for selling themselves to clients. Many a (potentially) great speaker have left the industry because of an inability and unwillingness to pick up the phone and make sales calls. Ed Rigsbee has been using this system (that he developed) of making no cold calling for nearly 20 years. Bookings Stick to the basics and business will come your way. The basic idea is to write articles intended for trade and professional publications (the author is pre-supposing that you have great content). Connect first with the editors of trade and professional publications, via phone and email. Freely give them your work, yes at no charge. Build an outrageously successful relationship with them and then let the editors be your bridge to the meeting planners. And, the by-product is additional business; corporate decision makers will read your articles and call you to speak at their meetings. Follow the plan and you will get bookings. Is This Book Worth It? So what's the plan worth? Perhaps nothing--perhaps literally thousands upon thousands of dollars in your first year. It's up to you. If you are willing to invest $37 for the complete system e- Book, including live association and association search hyperlinks, you can easily click your way to sales and marketing success in the industry of professional speaking. For about the same amount of money you would spend on going out to dinner tonight, this e-Book can be yours...why wait when you can start on an amazing sales and marketing path today?
