As I type today, I’m enjoying the breeze blowing through my open windows and the sound of happy, nesting birds outside. It’s my favorite time of year-spring!
Although I want to spend hours of time with my fingers in the dirt right now, spring is a great time to work on platform building. Event planners often book speakers for their fall and holiday events before everyone heads off for summer vacations, so this is the time to get the word out about your messages.
As I looked through questions we’ve received from our readers, the majority center around how to generate speaking opportunities. I could reinvent the wheel, but my friend Tracie Miles has already put together a great list of ideas. You can read her post here. I suggest starting back at the beginning of her series and reading it in its entirety by clicking here. She has loads of excellent ideas embedded. My suggestion is to make your own list, prioritizing and working on one project at a time.
Reading other blogs is another way to keep my ideas flowing concerning marketing. My two favorites are Michael Hyatt’s and Seth Godin’s. I encourage you to check them out. I’m also planning to buy and read Michael Hyatt’s book Platform.
Finally, let’s work together as Kingdom building speaker girls! What are you doing (have you done) that has worked in getting the word out about your message?
