I often receive the same question as a manager of speakers. Consistently, people want to know where I find speaking leads. The truth is there is no lack of leads out there.
I have written an entire special report on the subject, but here are my Top 3 Tips:
- I always find a plethora of leads using simple Google searches (http://www.google.com). I also suggest setting up Google alerts (http://www.google.com/alerts) so that you are notified immediately via e-mail of the latest conferences in your genre.
- Are you using your social media strategically? Here on LinkedIn, I have one client in particular who receives at least three inquiries a week asking about booking her. Start joining groups, connecting with people, commenting, sharing, and getting your presence out there.
- Many Convention and Visitor Bureaus across the country share information about what conferences are coming to town. Check them out. Do some research. You can find a list of Convention and Visitor Bureaus at: http://www.cvent.com/rfp/convention-visitors-bureau-directory-ee12b9994b424e4f91f7d48ae60d170c.aspx
