Mark here with a sword of truth for SPEAKERS who are not earning more than $10,000 a month.

Shannon and I see a lot of talented, heart-centered Speakers who have websites, blogs, article marketing- the works.

When we ask them how their business is doing and how many speaking gigs they’re getting from their site – we often hear a similar response:

**Crickets**

So we ask why they have a website if it’s not earning them money.

And, we get a similar response:

**Crickets**

Which is what inspired me to write to you today.

Here are 10 reasons why Speakers must IGNORE their websites until they make (at least) $10,000 a month.

 

  1. All great Speakers started SPEAKING to live audiences
  2. A small group LIVE is 100x more engaged than a small group reading a blog
  3. A “good” conversion rate online is 2%. Speaking LIVE can be over 50%.
  4. Websites cost more of your ENERGY than you think
  5. Working behind a computer screen vs. seeing LIVE beautiful FACES
  6. Checking stats vs. connecting and serving clients
  7. Online you get “likes”, in person you get hugs, “love” and real engagement
  8. Steve Jobs sold Apple computers…from SPEAKING
  9. Tony Robbins sells multiple 5-figure events…from SPEAKING
  10. Our clients made $5.7M last year… without relying on their website

I hope this inspires you to SPEAK to small groups in your own backyard more.

I hope this inspires you to FOCUS on the main reason you started Speaking: to make YOUR Big Impact, in front of live audiences.

Yes, once you’re earning in the multiple 10’s of 1000’s of dollars a month as a speaker, websites can be used to help you “scale”.

But until then, don’t even think of the word “scale”, ok? We’re here for you – and we want to help you stay FOCUSED.

Inspire the hell out of us and let me know:

 

What fires you up about Speaking in your own backyard?

 

We believe in you,
