3 Things You Need To Start Your Speaking Career

So you’ve watched some TED Talks and you’ve decided you want to start a speaking career! You’ve got this! But before you jump in head first, make sure that you have these 3 key things in place:

1. Find Your Niche

This one is pretty straightforward – find a topic to speak about. Chances are if you are seriously considering a speaking career, you’ve already got this one nailed down. But if you don’t, sit down and strategize. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I an expert on this topic? If not, how can I become one?
  • Am I passionate about this topic?
  • Who is my audience?
  • Does my audience care about this topic? How do I connect with them?

2. Branded Materials 

Unless you are a globally known sensation like Oprah, you’ll likely need to promote yourself and your speaking capabilities. Start by creating your own brand. Work with graphic design experts to create everything from a business card to letterhead, an email signature, leave-behinds, promotional flyers, and a custom website design. Our favorite graphic designers these days come from DesignFixx. Go check them out and tell them we sent you for a special discount! www.designfixx.com.

3. A Well Designed Presentation

You’ve selected your niche and branded yourself, what’s next? You’ll need a well-designed presentation to supplement your speech. There are tons of reasons why you need a visually appealing deck, but one is that it will help keep your audiences attention.  Here’s where our experts at GoPrezo come in!
