Extending The Experience

motivationalspeakersjokes4We all want to make more money as professional speakers.

Yes, it's true. We do want to change the world, but we want to make more MONEY while we're doing it. So motivational speakers are on an eternal quest to create other revenue streams and to find ways to sell from the stage.

I'm not good at selling!

It's a statement you often hear from speakers, like me, who aren't comfortable selling products – which is weird, because we have no problem selling our speeches. But I digress.

I have finally hit a turning point in my career in that I no longer look at it as back-of-the-room sales. I look at it as extending the experience. And that's a whole lot different and a whole lot better. We aren't finding ways to sell them stuff. We're looking for ways that they can prolong the experience – prolong the happiness – and create lasting change. Look at it through these eyes, and I don't think selling will ever be hard again.

In the spirit of this conversation, I would love to show you one way I prolong the experience for my audience:



Motivational Speaker Kelly Swanson - called one of North Carolina's funniest women by Our State Magazine. Kelly lifts the spirits of audiences from coast-to-coast using humor, storytelling, and lives of the characters from Prides Hollow - Kelly's make believe small town. This unique approach to motivational speaking allows Kelly to break through communications barriers and connect directly to the audience's imagination.
Her powerful stories and wacky wit will make you laugh, remind you that you matter, show you how to see beyond your obstacles, and teach you how to stand up and stick out in a crowded market.

  1. Yes, yes, yes, YES!!!! This program is AMAZING and does exactly what is needed in terms of "keeping people in the conversation" after the event. And, more than that, it actually gives them little daily actions to keep it going! LOVE this!

  2. So glad you get how hard it is to sell ourselves to our audiences.  This helps us extend the experience – what a great perspective shift!
