Book Expo America Author New York City 2017 Trends in Publishing

 

It was a great time at Book Expo America again this year in New York City. While not as big as it has been in the past it is still the largest book event in the USA and the longest standing book event (over 100 years) with mark Twain being one of it’s early speakers.

Everyday I broadcasted live on Facebook from the Javits’ Center on our Beyond Publishing Facebook Fanpage 

In the coming weeks I’ll talk about the

3 Biggest Trends in Publishing

1.) Audio Books
2.) Hard Cover Books
3.) Global Distribution

Children’s Author Serena Brown Travis Launching Perfect Penny Positive Children’s Books

Beyond Publishing Author Serena Brown Travis is Proud to Announce her New Perfect Penny Positive Children’s Book Series for Kids Book One Launching April 18 Full story by M3NewMedia on PRWeb 4.11.17

Destined to become a classic, The Perfect Penny Children’s Book Series launching Spring 2017 by Author Serena Brown Travis is designed to help children build up their self-esteem in spite of grim circumstances and ultimately change their otherwise doomed perspectives into a positive mindset. Daughter of renowned motivational speaker Les Brown, Serena strategically intertwines disappointment and defeat with messages of encouragement and inspiration.

 

“Perfect Penny is assisting me in helping spread positivity into the lives of children and adults. You’ll love the tenacity of Perfect Penny. We can all learn from her!” Les Brown

“I’ve always heard, ‘Evil prevails when good men and women do nothing.’ I’ve always wanted to launch a series of motivational books for children helping them to develop positive self-esteem and a renewed outlook on life. While adults can recognize when they need a push or a jolt of motivation, I think children need characters and storylines they can identify with. Along with many parents, I needed more resources and positive readings for my two children and the Positive Penny Series of books will give parents and children motivational tools and strategies from an early age,” says Author Serena Brown Travis, as she proudly continues her father’s legacy.

School counselors especially love how the books tackle stronger subjects including homelessness, absentee parenting, and hunger while finding a glimmer of hope in each story. Serena is well on her way to reaching her goal of having an impact on the lives of children with the first three books being released this spring.

 

The younger Brown, with Empowerment Products, the name of her company launching the Perfect Penny brand says, “I plan to launch as many inspirational books as possible. The first three books feature Perfect Penny with all of her heart touching childhood hilarity and authenticity. School counselors especially love how the books tackle stronger subjects including parental neglect, homelessness, and absentee parenting while finding a glimmer of hope in each story. The Perfect Penny Positive Words print version was released in February with the E-book releasing on April 18th is now available for pre-order on Amazon for $1.99. Serena Brown Travis will be on WCMH Columbus channel 4 NBC in April to tell more about why she wrote Perfect Penny.

 

There are a number of book signings and media interviews planned. For the latest signings, readings and interviews watch the Author’s website at BeyondPublishing.net/AuthorSerenaBrownTravis and for media inquiries email serenambrown@aol.com.

 

Perfect Penny Positive Words is the first in the Perfect Penny Book Series; Inspired by the stories of Earl Nightengale, Napoleon Hill, W. Clement Stone, Zig Ziglar, Les Brown and many other great names in the personal development and self-help space. The author, having grown up in the personal development movement, long before it went mainstream and before anyone knew of “The Secret” or the “Law of Attraction” is excited to bring The Perfect Penny Positive Book Series to the world and believes it to be the perfect time!

 

 

SERIES SYNOPSIS

Perfect Penny is a unique kid. Perfect Penny experiences hard times, disappointments, and bullying, but she is strong and resilient. Perfect Penny finds light in dark situations. It’s Penny’s innocence that helps her deal with and answer life’s tough questions. Perfect Penny’s positive perspective will lift you up and give you confidence to take on life.

 

Despite her humble start in life Penny finds the resources that empower her to overcome adversity and bring positivity to her life affecting all of those around her with optimism and hope. Perfect Penny is destined to become a classic series for children and a favorite for parents and grandparents for story time, bed time, play time or any time.

Serena Brown Travis says, “We’ve decided to make the first e-book available for $1.99 to give everyone a chance to see what the excitement is about. The vibrant illustrations, the well written story features Penny, who was born in a dumpster finding the tools she needs to not only cope but spread positivity with everyone around by accepting the fact that she was born for greatness.” Publisher Michael D. Butler with Beyond Publishing says, we’ve published a number of children’s books but we are most excited about this series because it has a deeper purpose and global appeal. Children all over the world will benefit from reading this book and we are excited about leveraging The Perfect Penny Series around the globe from Australia, India, Canada, the UK and everywhere. Penny’s infectious spirit rubs off on those around her and opens the door for book #2 Perfect Penny – It’s Not Over Until We Win and book #3 Perfect Penny – My Different World. Books #1 and #2 are available now and book #3 will be released soon.”

 

ENDORSEMENTS

 

“You will love the innocence of Perfect Penny Brown. She has some pretty tough circumstances to deal with and she seems to always find a positive spin to her story. I believe we are all like Perfect Penny. Life can deal us some major hits, but if we use optimism and faith like Perfect Penny, in the end, we will be okay. If we use our imaginations and never let our situations get us down, like Perfect Penny Brown, we would think life doesn’t seem so bad. I know Perfect Penny Brown’s questions all too well; why was I born in an abandoned building on a floor? Why did my mother give me away? Am I trash? We all question our circumstances, but like Perfect Penny, I imagined a new life for myself and I created it. I am super excited and proud of my youngest daughter, Serena Brown Travis, on the creation of this character and book series. This will help your children get a Perfect Penny Brown perspective on life and help you, the adult, to always find life’s silver linings!” Mamie’s Baby Boy, Les Brown www.LesBrown.com

 

“I wish I had this series of books when my children were younger…” Brittany T

 

“As an educator of 30 years I always look for books I can read my first graders after recess and during special times PERFECT PENNY is one of their favorite books. We need more books like “Perfect Penny” for our children and their parents.” Mrs. Sabrina Garcia

Author’s Dedication:

 

This book is dedicated to the many children and adults who never heard positive words before or after your name. It is dedicated to the folks who never received a wink, pat on the back, hi-five, smile, or hug of encouragement. Perfect Penny was created to remind you of your greatness, your beauty, and unlimited value. You are enough. You can do more than you could ever begin to imagine. You have greatness within. You are indeed perfect!

Create Your Own Inspiration – Get inspired & Make it Happen This Year!

Driving the 90 minutes from sunny southern California I could hardly believe I’d need chains for my Toyota Prius at Big Bear Lake and Mountain but oh did I! Not getting them on in time was a big mistake as I ended up stuck for about an hour.

Many authors get stuck and some just give up entirely on their dream of being a published author and getting their book out to the world. Sometimes all that is need is to step back, take a breath, put on the chains and start driving again to the top of the mountain. The best views can only be seen with a change of perspective and the view from the top always enlightens and motivates us to how close we are to the goal.

Top 10 Twitter Follows for Book Authors in 2017

Twitter has become a very reliable news feed and micro-blogging platform since it launched in 2006. With so much new information showing up on Google globally each day the Internet struggles to index all of that content topically and relies heavily upon Twitter to help index that new content. This is one reason a new brand, book or author can quickly dominate a local niche or a keyword topic and start trending on Twitter.

Twitter is like the broad side of a funnel as you attract leads and potential customer’s and book readers. The entire goal of Twitter is to create online buzz and begin conversations about your book, business and brand!

Authors – When is the Best Time of Year to Launch Your Book?

Are you a Fiction or a Non-Fiction Author?

Gone are the days of throwing your book up on a bookstore retail shelf and become an overnight instant best selling sensation are long over, unless of course someone in hollywood buys your story and makes a movie (sure that can help)

Book publishing has become a noisy industry. With over one million new isbn’s (International Standard Book Numbers issued in the USA alone each year according to Bowker.com) it’s getting harder and harder for the new author to get their message, cause and book noticed. So the timing of a book launch could not be more critical than ever in this “Post-Border’s” era we are in called the digital age.

Authors ask me all the time: “When is the best time of year to launch my book?”

The answer is: That really depends. It doesn’t matter fully if it is fiction or non-fiction or what genre your book is.

When it comes to launch your book – Some questions to ask yourself are:

  1. What is your Klout Score?
  2. How engaged is your social media tribe?
  3. How big is your email list?
  4. How responsive is your email list?
  5. What is your conversion rate?
  6. How many joint venture partners do you have?
  7. Are you a speaker?
  8. How many speaking gigs do you have scheduled for the next 12 months?
  9. How active is your Author YouTube channel?
  10. Do you have an active PR (Public Relations campaign scheduled?)

There is a science to launch your book effectively.

It really is a mathematical algorithm. Leveraging the social graph, seeing your content go viral, getting other talking about your, leveraging Google trends, etc…Stay tuned for more, next week we talk about leveraging movies in Hollywood to strategically time your book release. I’m a big fan of a system our team created around the triple push book launch that involves the strategic release of your e-book, pre-release of your print book advance reader copy and the global distribution of your second edition print copy into book stores, libraries and multiple distribution outlets. Reach out to us at the contact number below and let’s discuss how that would look with your book launch.

Authors – Will Getting Your Book into Bookstores Guarantee Book Sales?

Many a new and veteran author has asked: “Will getting my book into bookstores increase my book sales?

Over the past decade I’ve heard hundreds of authors say, “If I could just get my book in the bookstore I know I could sell books.”

In reality, the retail brick and mortar bookstores might very well be THE WORST place to sell your books as an author. The reason for this is simple: YOUR BUYER HAS MOVED!

Best-Selling-Author-Post-Border-Era-Amazon

The year was 2007 and that was the year that Amazon announced Online books outsold retail books. The Internet, like the printing press was creating a revolution in opportunity and the way books had been distributed for decades.

As an author, the ways to capitalize on this trend of effective book distribution in a ‘post-Borders’ era multiplying.

1.) AUTHORS, FICTION AND NON-FICTION, CAN NOW LEVERAGE SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE INTERNET TO BUILD A ‘TRIBE’ OF LOYAL FANS, FOLLOWERS AND FRIENDS WHO HAVE AN INTEREST IN THE AUTHOR’S TOPIC AND BE MORE LIKELY TO BUY THE BOOK WHEN IT RELEASES.

2.) Speakers who use the stage to sell books at the ‘back of room’ can add extra value to their audiences and revenue for their bottom line with a print book about their topic of expertise.

3.) COMPANIES, BRANDS AND AUTHORS CAN DEPLOY A BOOK SERIES RELEASE STRATEGY TO ESTABLISH CREDIBILITY AS THEY LEVERAGE INTO NEW AND EXISTING VERTICALS.

Savvy authors recognize that while selling books can be a lucrative proposition, it does require a lot of work and does not happen automatically. Unless an author already has a large engaged tribe of loyal fans it can be an uphill journey of several years and multiple stages to sell fifteen thousand books. Many authors see their book launch as a marketing strategy and expense to; maintain and educate existing customers thereby improving long-term customer retention and to improve the customer acquisition process thereby making a book one of the greatesT marketing tools in their arsenal for business development.

The opportunities to capitalize on and monetize with books are as limitless as ones imagination.

Building an Online presence is the #1 strategy for becoming a Best Seller.

Pluses for getting your book into bookstores:

1.) More impressions and visibility
2.) Increased book sells (you hope)
3.) Possibility of book signings at the bookstore

Downside of getting your book into bookstores:

1.) Decreased profit margins
2.) Returns (buy backs)
3.) Your competing with similar books in your genre that are right next to your book

Book Selling Tip Helps Authors Generate 20% More Revenue in Book Sales

Authors who want to reach Best Seller Status can sell more books by following sound practical business advice. Someone once said, “Success leaves clues.”

It’s no secret that the book selling system protocols of yester year no longer work today. But there are some tried and true rock solid tips that will give the new and veteran author the market traction they need to reach Best Seller Status.

At the end of the day it comes down to getting others talking about your book.

It’s not enough for the author alone to be talking about their book.

It is necessary to get other readers and particularly influencers talking about your topic, your book and your platform as a new author.

In this video I talk about the power of leveraging the Acknowledgments page in your book. While going though the acknowledgments page in my personal book shelf I have noticed a decline in the amount of gratitude over the past several years and how the acknowledgments pages have actually been shrinking or don’t even exist in many of the newer books that are being published and self published.

It will benefit the author greatly to include this section as a complete stand alone space just like giving it it’s own chapter and respect and space.

  • By including people’s names and even short descriptions of how they have helped you, inspired you and coached you in life will not only honor those who have helped you along your path but can actually boost book sales.
  • Everyone likes to see their name in print right? This is a great way to get others talking good about you. For example, if you plan to release your e-book prior to the print book you an actually leverage everyone you mention in your acknowledgement page as a book sale.
  • By purchasing for them a gift copy of your e-book (we do it for .99 cents during our Amazon Best Seller campaign that typically lasts 72 hours) When they open their email and download the e-book from you it counts as a book sale.

So for example, you mention 200 people you want to thank for their contribution in your life and you send them a quick email and let them know you are gifting them an E-copy of your book and you mention them on page 4. When they download the book, that counts as a sale for you and puts you on track to become a #1 International Best Selling Author on Amazon.

HAVE A BUSINESS PLAN BEYOND THE BOOK. Learn to LEVERAGE the book into other businesses.

Your Story Becoming a Movie | Make-A-Wish Foundation | Your Brand

When it comes to building your brand online and creating multiple streams of income around your book, your business and your brand. Video marketing should be an integral part of all that you do and here’s why and is why video blogging should be a weekly thing on Facebook LIVE and YouTube LIVE

Why V-blog weekly on Facebook LIVE and YouTube LIVE

  1. It’s where people are
  2. It’s so easy to broadcast, optimize and syndicate
  3. It will have the most long term impact on your traffic to your BUY NOW page.

The reason most people don’t do enough video blogging

  1. We think it’s not perfect
  2.  We think we need expensive editing equipment 3.
  3.  We think others will judge us if it’s not uber professional

My VERY FIRST video on YouTube 8 years ago when Jeremiah (my youngest was 12)

I started out shooting in my kitchen in Oklahoma in 2010. They were bad, didn’t get much traffic but I started and many of those are still getting watched and  indexed by Google and they are driving traffic to my Websites based on my keywords.

I recently interviewed the Make-A-Wish Foundation Founder Frank Shankwitz in San Diego and personally thanked him as my family has been the recipient of his amazing organization during the time of  my sons healing from Leukemia.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation story gives new writers and veteran authors a great model to craft their story and bring their brand and platform to the world. In the last 30 years, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted nearly 300,000 wishes for children battling life-threatening illnesses.

The Book about the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Frank Shankwitz are about to become a full length major motion picture.

Once Upon A Wish: True Inspirational Stories of Make-A-Wish Children Paperback – March 5, 2013  by Rachelle Sparks

Frank’s amazing journey and the stories about the foundation will be featured in a the new movie coming out soon.

Frank-Shankwitz-Make-A-Wish-Foundation-interview

Michael D. Butler, Beyond Publishing with the Make-A-Wish Foundation Founder Frank Shankwitz

When it comes to getting your story out to the world 3 questions every author must ask themselves:

  • How can I create something epic that will change the world?
  • How can I get other people telling my story?
  • How can I make my story (my book go viral)?

Amazing stories are all around us. Everyday heroes are often overlooked by media and by our society.

When you tell the stories that real people want to hear you and your brand can become famous reach the world almost overnight!

6 Things you can do THIS WEEK to begin to generate buzz around your brand and your eminent book launch:

  1. Create a weekly YouTube clip (my interview above with Frank was shot with my iphone6)
  2. Embed your video interview into your WordPress Website and write a 300-500 word blog post around the interview.
  3. Link back to your YouTube video.
  4. Use the same text in your blog post as you do on your YouTube video (this will help you tremendously with SEO – Search Engine Optimization)
  5. Share your blog post on all of your social media channels: Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Facebook Fanpage, Tumblr, Linkedin, instagram and Pinterest.
  6. Ask others to like, comment and share as well and (see it go viral!)

 

Having a team of Book Launch Experts™ to pave the way and leverage Best Seller Status™ with a Book Selling System™ would indeed, be the ultimate Online solution in a post borders era.

Can You Hashtag Your Way to Best Seller Status™?

Can I #Hashtag My Way to Best-Seller Status™

The hashtag # popular since Twitter launched in 2006 has spread to other social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn and now almost entirely across the internet to help users and search engines index topically based on relevant keywords. Strategic hash tagging alone can’t make you a best seller but is one ingredient in your arsenal for sure. Just like doing one bench press cannot make you an Olympic Gold medalist it can be one step on the road to get you there and most likely won’t happen without a tens of thousands of them. There is such a thing as hashtag overkill and hashtag spam and we go more into hashtag etiquette in our next edition of this e-book so stay tuned.

Author Central and Good Reads and Why Every New Book Author should be Engaged

What is the most author-centric social media platform where all 100% of members are authors? If you said Author Central you are right. Amazon’s Author Central is a powerful connector platform for authors who want to stand out and get noticed. This platform in addition to Amazon’s Good Reads makes a powerful one two combination when it comes to marketing your book and doing the pre-launch on your next book authors. For those writers who want to go “best-seller”

When it comes to making the biggest splash with your book launch two of the most important author platforms to be engaged on are Author Central and Good Reads.

Unlike Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, SnapChat and other social media platforms Author Central and Good Reads are made up 100% exclusively by authors and readers. Good reads is all about books and Author Central is all about authors.

To become a recognized expert in your niche it’s important for an author to do 3 things:

  • Connect with other authors and books in the genre of your book launch this will allow others to see you, find you and buy your book when it launches.
  • Engage with others who are interested in your topic. Engage with both readers and authors.
  • Interview respected experts who’ve written books on your topic. By interviewing these experts you see, by default, as an expert in your space.

Finally you can enable your Twitter feed on your Author Central account this will help you grow your fanbase and share your blog posts, websites and video interviews about your book and make it easier for your to find readers and other experts that have an interest in your topic that you are writing about.

Telling Your Story as an Author: I Stuttered as a Child & HOW it Helped Me…

 

In this video Michael D. Butler, Book Launch Expert with https://beyondpublishing.net helps you PRE MARKET your book by framing your story in the manuscript for fiction and non-fiction authors.

Telling Your Story as an Author: I Stuttered as a Child and Here’s HOW It Leveraged Me For Success

Asking you two very important questions. Is your book something people want to read? And is your book your expertise, your passion or your lifelong study?

In my new series, BOOKS ON THE BEACH I will show authors how to take their book from their heart, their head and their computer to the world!

Statistically, new self published authors make less than $500 according to The Guardian.

Many new and veteran authors overlook the potential power of social media when it comes to creating Online tribes and finding book buyers and book reviewers. While social media as a sales channel can bring disappointing results, authors who see social media as an Online COMMUNITY with mutual contribution and not merely a broadcast microphone will see better results says Author Social Media firm M3 New Media.

“The fact is even WRITING THE MANUSCRIPT is marketing. As authors we have to THINK about marketing when we are writing our books.” Michael D. Butler

Too many new authors are disappointed with their book launch because they don’t do the things necessary to create a BEST-SELLER BEFORE book launch. It takes a good 24-36 months of “pre-marketing” to get a book ready for BEST-SELLER STATUS. Authors who short-circuit these steps will be disappointed when their book does not hit the targeted Best-Seller list. In this video I talk about “pre-marketing” with story telling and how important YOUR story is to your books success!

7 Questions Authors & Publishers must ask BEFORE Book Launch

Statistically, new self published authors make less than $500 according to The Guardian.


Many new and veteran authors overlook the potential power of social media when it comes to creating Online tribes and finding book buyers and book reviewers. While social media as a sales channel can bring disappointing results, authors who see social media as an Online COMMUNITY with mutual contribution and not merely a broadcast microphone will see better results says Author Social Media firm M3 New Media.

“The fact is even WRITING THE MANUSCRIPT is marketing. As authors we have to THINK about marketing when we are writing our books.” Michael D. Butler

Some of the questions new and existing authors need to ask themselves before launching any new book  project are:

 

1. Is there enough demand for the topic I am writing about?

2. How many books have been written on my chosen topic?

3. How many of those books have hit Best Seller?

4. Do I have an active, Online community that is connected to my topic?

5. Do I have speaking gigs (Online and in person) lined up to speak to people that are passionate about my cause and my project?

6. Do I have a social media presence where I am considered an influencer and thought leader on my topic?

7. Have I interviewed enough experts on my topic and could I feature their content in my book?

These questions are a good baseline indicator of whether or not a book will do well in the marketplace and in bookstores. There are other indicators we use as a publisher to determine market viability and timing.

Speak with someone here at Beyond Publishing and Marketing your book today.

3 Steps to Paid Speaking Gigs for New Authors & Speakers

As an author have you asked yourself: “How can I get paid speaking gigs to sell more books and establish more credibility as an expert?”

Getting paid speaking gigs is like being in College and trying to get credit to buy your first car.

“I did over 100 free speeches before I ever got paid for a single speech.” Zig Ziglar

You need credit to get credit but you don’t have credit and no one wants to be the first one to take a gamble on you. Not like kids who are in College now getting credit cards sent to their dorm room, things have changed.

No one wants to be THE FIRST to hire you as a speaker if they have not first seen you do your thing. So what I will show you in this video and blog post is HOW to showcase yourself as a speaker to get the credibility you need and to begin to get hired as a speaker.

 

1. Accept Free Speaking Gigs

Be honest. as speakers, we all prefer the paid speaking events. But many a seasoned pro will tell you they did hundreds of free speeches before they got paid for one. This may not be encouraging for a new aspiring speaker to hear but the truth is, in the Internet age, you can log a lot of speeches using my methods below that include Internet interviews.

2. Get Photos of You Speaking

Maybe you are thinking: “Yeah right that’s great if I’m speaking on a stage with 5,000 in my audience but I’m speaking to 12-15 people.” Listen, this is no problem. Have someone get some tight shots of you. When it comes to video and photos a good close up with 2-3 people listening intently can be more powerful for your marketing than a wide shot of you lost in the crowd and on a big stage.

I tell our Authors at Beyond Publishing that the purpose of a book signing is not to sell a ton of books, oh it’s nice if and when that happens. But the book signing is all about getting the photo opp so the event can live on in infamy on your Facebook Fanpage and Website for life and help you position yourself more as a thought leader for future books.

Michael-D-Butler-Speaking-Mastermind

Leading an Author Mastermind in Oklahoma

Build out a Photo Album of you Speaking on your Facebook Fanpage and periodically posts new photos of you speaking and having the microphone in your hand. Even if your interview is a Google Hangout, take a screen shot and post it as it is a newsworthy event and a story that needs to be re-told as it is you speaking on your topic of expertise and that makes YOU a subject matter expert in your field.

3. Put together a Sizzle Reel of You Speaking & Include Testimonials

“If a picture is worth a thousand words what is a video worth?” Michael D. Butler

Have someone capture your talk and create a video Sizzle Reel of the talk . This is something our marketing team can but together for you or you can find someone to do this for you.  Even if you do not have live footage of you speaking you can use still photos with voice over audio of you speaking and subtitles with testimonials from what others are saying about your talk.

Another great way to potentially  impress someone who may want to hire you to speak is by having a robust YouTube channel with you hosting interviews, being interviewed and speaking from your heart to your followers. Don’t let the need to be perfect make you wait. As you wait to get the right professional equipment the world and your market is moving on. Get started now. People want to see you. Don’t wait, start speaking and making money with your expert talks! Not to mention, sell more books!

In a future blog post I will talk about Speaker’s Bureau’s Pros & Cons and if you should join one or not.

Author Ania G & Michael D. Butler at LA Times Festival of Books Los Angeles

The time is now for every Author, Entrepreneur and Business Person to see themselves as a Publisher. The fact is the printing press brought us out of the Dark Ages and the Internet has opened up a whole new world of Publishing.

This is WHY every Expert, Artist, Author and Entrepreneur must see themselves as a Publisher.

Someone recently said, “The future belongs to those who get there first.”

And the quickest way to predict the future is to own it. Never before has it been possible to create and own influence in the hearts and minds of so many through the power of the written and the spoken word that in this Internet age!

Thus the infamous quote from 1839:

“The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword.” 

“So to every Author, Expert, Entrepreneur, Pastor, Business Person, Write, Create, Broadcast, don’t wait until everything is perfect. Start now, do something daily and change the world!” Michael D. Butler

Speaking Gigs that can Help Book Authors Sell More Books

Last week I asked the question: When is the best time of year to launch your book?

Today I want to talk about: Speaking Gigs that can Help Book Authors Sell More Books

For the new author who wants to sell more books it just makes sense to  strategically accept speaking gigs to gain more exposure for your book.

A good example of a billion dollar branded that launched pre-Internet is Chicken Soup for the Soul with Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield. They did 600 radio interviews that first year when NOBODY knew who they were and many of those interviews were in their PJ’s!

Speaking

 Types of Speaking

1. Speaking from Stage-Keynotes

2. Facilitating Workshops

3. Coaching/Consulting/Counseling

4. Speaking on Webinars, Radio Shows, Podcasts, Google Hangouts, Blog Talk Radio interviews

5. Speaking to bookclubs, reader groups,etc.. in Libraries, Churches and organizations

6. Social Media platforms, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Vimeo, Instagram and Google+

All of the above situations can be events the author is invited to speak at or events the author hosts themselves. There are advantages and disadvantages to hosting your own events. We can go into more detail on this at a future date.

Getting Paid to Speak

There are speaking gigs that an author can get paid for and there are speaking events with no honorarium. There are many sponsorship opportunities where a new speaker can sponsor an event and gain access to the stage and even have a table or booth at an event. Do your research and put your negotiating skills to work, you’d be surprised what you might find.

We’d all like to get paid to speak right? It is true that our brand value goes up when we are on stage and we can sell more books, charge more for coaching and consulting and book calendar full with prospect appointments.

New authors must be willing to speak for free in order to gain the experience, testimonials and necessary resume of speaking in order to start charging retail pricing.

In the economic downturn of 2007 and 2008 the speaking industry took a hit and so did speaker fees. While things in the Corporate, Entrepreneurial, Direct Sales and Faith Based markets are starting to make a comeback; the wise speaker will be strategic in how they position themselves withing the every changing market.

Depending on where the author is at in their speaking career, smart authors can negotiate: speaking fees, honorariums, book sales, air time, selling from the stage, selling back of room, schedule placement and many other features into their talks, seminars and workships.

It is ideal to get others talking about your brand but before others will believe in your brand and talk about your brand they have to see that YOU believe in your brand and you are passionate about talking about your brand.

Last week I listed 10 things that every new author needs to ask themselves 12 months BEFORE they launch their next book:

 

4 Things Every new and veteran author MUST ask before they think about marketing their book are:

  1. How engaged is your social media tribe?

  2. Am I a Speaker or willing to learn how to speak?

  3. How many speaking gigs do you have scheduled for the next 12 months?

  4. How active is your Author YouTube channel?

 

5 Ways to Become a Better Speaker & Get More Paid Speaking Gigs

  1. Join a local Toastmasters group in your area.

  2. Join the National Speakers Association

  3. Interview people on your YouTube channel on a weekly basis using Google Hangout

  4. Give free speeches in your local community for free to get better with practice and to get photos and videos of your speaking

  5. Use Google to find people who are hosting regional events, non profits, educational forums and offer to speak or be on a panel for free. Some great opportunities for speaking are the local Rotary clubs, Lions clubs and other civic organizations.
