Summary transcript for 20 June 2013 #AWCchat: getting started as a pro speaker

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 58th #AWCChat on Twitter, about how to get started as a professional, paid speaker.

Here is what we discussed:

1)  How many on the chat currently have some standard speaking topics/presentations (paid or not?)

2)  Elements of a solid Speaker info page with topics, experience, testimonials, etc.

3)  We talked about pricing, from what people think is reasonable to charge for a one-hour presentation when you’re new, to higher-end amounts.

Don’t miss the helpful Resource links we tweeted, either.

Summary transcript for 5 Jan 2012 #AWCchat: paid speaking

Thanks to everyone who participated in our fifth #AWCChat on Twitter.

There were four questions for discussion during this chat:

1)   Let’s say you have an offer to speak for 1 hour at a conference, for pay. What do you charge?

2)   When is it good business to speak for free, or for pay that’s way below your usual rate?

3)   Event organizers will want a bio, head shot photo and title/description of your presentation. What tips do you have for each to shine?

4)   Does speaking really convert into actual sales of your products or services? Or does it just bring more speaking gigs?

**  On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 5 Jan chat on becoming a pro speaker.  This edition is stuffed with extra resource links about speaking, too.

The next #AWCChat is scheduled for 12 January 2012.   Topic:   Writing for the Web: Why Bullets, Lists and Top 10s Aren’t Crummy “Communications Lite”

**  Chat schedule and topics for January 2012
