Speaking Gigs! Jackie's Third Great Money-Saving Resource

 So, we're almost through with Jackie Lapin's series of three guest posts! I know, sad!  

But this third post from Publicist Jackie Lapin is worth the wait. Most authors who have read my The Frugal Book Promoter know that speaking is the number one way for authors to promote their work and actually sell their books. Publicist Jackie Lapin offered her list of podcasts and radio on this blog (yes, it's still available) on Friday, July 28, and her list of virtual summit opportunities on Friday, July 21. When you're through reading this, be sure to visit those two blogs, too.  

If you are asking why the do-it-yourself queen of the #HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writing (that's me!) is suggesting you pay for lists like this: It's because they have been vetted which means they may be better than the ones an author builds herself), and because even frugal authors may prefer to be earning money speaking than doing the required research to find the resources on the Web!  In fact, speaking is one of the few ways to market a book that can also line your marketing-budget pockets with some extra spending money!     

No Need to Look for Them—There are Speaking Gigs Waiting for You!

From Jackie Lapin, founder of www.SpeakerTunity.com 
and Conscious Media Relation’s 

As an author, you know that the very best way to sell books is in person. When people see and hear you, they are deeply connected to you and inspired to buy.

So it follows that the more you are out in public speaking about your book, the more books you will sell and the more you will build a loyal following. And maybe even pick up a few new clients!

But the biggest headache about public speaking (that is, if you’ve gotten beyond the fear of speaking!) is finding the opportunities. As a busy author, I’ll bet you don’t have time to look, even when you know it’s in your best interests.

So let me tell you a little about SpeakerTunity Speaker Leads. We built it with authors like you in mind. We’ve created a way to deliver you more than 60 direct contacts each month for organizations, events and venues across North America that welcome authors with a message or an empowering story to tell.  (And for you Californians, we’ve put a little extra emphasis on opportunities here!)

We’ve captured presentation-friendly bookstores; local chapters and meetings of a vast variety of organizations; conferences, conventions, lifestyle events, expos and multi-speaker events; resorts, retreats and holistic living centers; associations; health support groups,  spiritual living centers and churches; specialty programs focusing on everything from aging to recovery to heart-based business building to LGBTQ to ethnic or gender-specific and much more.

And to top it off, subscribers join a private Facebook Group with tons more timely “calls for speakers” and exclusive leads.

All the contacts are there. Just pick the ones the fit and present yourself to the speaker-booker by email or online submission form.

Take a look at the bottom of the SpeakerTunity Speaker Leads page and you’ll see what others have already said about this revolutionary time-saving resource that’s getting raves. For only $35/month, the book sales at just one booking each month can cover your costs—and then some!
