HOW TO SET UP SPEAKING GIGS AND GET PAID provides a step-by-step guide to developing, organizing, and promoting your first speaking gigs and getting paid for them. It includes chapters on these topics:
— Deciding what you want to talk about
— Organizing your talk or presentation
— Making the arrangements for your talk
— Marketing and promoting your talk
— Putting on your event
— Developing a promotional video from your event
— Using your first event to get other gigs.
It includes examples from my experiences in setting up a paid gig on writing and publishing books for myself and clients, marketing and promoting the event, and working with a videographer to create a series of videos I could use to promote future gigs.
