Expires After: Does not Expire

If you’re new to pitching for publicity — or you’ve tried to pitch but only heard crickets in reply — then you’re going to want to start here.

This program has three main components, which should be done in order:

  1. Establishing Yourself as an Expert (Even if You Don’t Feel Like One): The very first thing I do with every client is work on their expert statement, which will eventually go directly into your pitch to establish your credibility and highlight your unique attributes. In this module you’ll learn:
    • The 2 main types of publicity opportunities (and learn the difference)
    • The framework to quickly assess how to distinguish yourself as an expert
    • The #1 mistake people make when pitching (and how to avoid it)
  2. Developing Your Pitch List: Before you can start writing pitches, you need to know who you’re pitching. This module teaches you our system for identifying the right outlets for you. In this module you’ll learn:
    • How to identify the right opportunities for your business
    • The process for reaching out to media contacts and how to find their contact information
    • Constructing your pitch list in a strategic order (and how to know when it’s the right time to pitch)

Step Onto Stage: From First Gig to Paid Speaker
Expires After: Does not Expire

You want to get up on that stage as a speaker, but you’ve got a lot of questions . . .

Am I enough of an expert to be a public speaker?

What should I talk about?

Where do I find speaking gigs?

How do I put together a speech that will keep my audience engaged?

And how do I leverage my speaking engagement to land clients and other opportunities?

If you’ve found yourself asking these questions, then Step Onto Stage: From First Gig to Paid Expert is for you!

Whether you’re building a platform for a book release, trying to get in front of potential clients or simply want to establish yourself as an expert, public speaking is an excellent way to achieve your goals!

I know, because I’ve been speaking for the last decade and have achieved all of those things through my time on the stage – in addition to getting PAID to speak!

This program has seven modules, which should be done in order if you’re just starting out.

If you’ve already done lots of free speaking and are simply looking to start getting paid, you’re probably going to skip straight to the “Getting Paid” module…but beware: the reason you’re not getting paid already might be hiding in work you need to do in one of the other modules!

  2. Outlining Your Topic & Writing Your Bio
  3. Identifying Speaking Opportunities
  4. Writing Your Speaking Proposal
