    Show notes:

    While up on stage, there’s no question that the content of your speech or presentation is important. However, what’s even more vital is connecting with your audience.

     

    If you fail to establish a rapport with your audience, your message will be lost on them – regardless of how great it is.

    Show notes:

    There’s no question that, to build a successful speaking business, you have to have charisma, excellent delivery, and a way of connecting with and engaging audiences every time you step out on that stage. 

     

    However, while it’s vital to hone your speaking skills, they are, in a way, secondary to the ability to market yourself. Why? Because without effective marketing strategies, even the most talented speakers in the world would struggle to stay afloat in the competitive public speaking industry.

    If you’re a little confused, stick with me, and I’ll explain why the success of your business depends on your marketing ability much more than your on-stage speaking talent.

    129. How to Repurpose the Heck Out of Your Speaker Content (With 4 Examples)

    129. How to Repurpose the Heck Out of Your Speaker Content (With 4 Examples)

    How to Repurpose the Heck Out of Your Speaker Content (With 4 Examples)
    In This Episode You Will Learn About:

    How repurposing your speaker content works
    4 examples of how you can repurpose your content today
    Where you can get help and ideas on repurposing your content

     

    As those of you who have worked with me will know, I’ve long advocated for the need for you to be everywhere, all the time. 

     

    But as a busy speaker or someone balancing their up-and-coming speaking business with other work and family commitments, that can seem like an impossible task.

     

    The answer lies in repurposing your content. By repurposing your content, you can be everywhere, all the time, without actually having to BE everywhere, all the time. In other words, you can get more done in less time by working smarter, not harder.
