Should I ever speak for free?
If you’re just starting out, speaking for free is often the way to go. And you can still make money! You can attract clients and customers, promote your seminar, product, book, CD, or DVD through your speaking appearances – in fact, speaking for free can really pay off. Our clients who speak for free often get invited back to do paid gigs, such as keynotes at conferences or corporate trainings. Speaking for free is a way to build your skills and make connections that lead to gigs that pay.
What does all this cost?
It’s $99-149 down to get started, depending on which plan you choose, and payments range from $25-39/month. (Pay in full and get additional months in the Directory.) Updates and changes? Of course! It’s all included. See our plans here.
