As a motivational speaker, I talk to a lot of people who want to be speakers. And they all want to know how to get business. Valid question. And to that I have one simple reply: tell the world you are here. If you are sitting there wondering why you don't have any bookings, then I am asking you, "What are you doing to tell the world you are here?"
And one way is an online press release. Not only does it get search engine attention, it gets the attention of press and might land you a TV interview. (I've had it happen.) Send out press releases whenever you want the world to know you have a message, a new product, a new event, a new thought – you name it. And you can even send it for free online! Just Google "free press release". It's super easy! You'll probably find, like me, that doing one is the easy part – it's remembering to do one that's hard. (Don't forget to include valuable keywords in the press release, with link backs to your website.)
So anyway…here's one of mine. Took me about fifteen minutes to create. This one has a few more bells and whistles (more links and video) because I put a little money on it this time. So have fun, and go tell the world you are here! We're waiting!
