Aspiring Speakers: If You Want to Step Up to Bigger Stages, Get Ready First

Broadcast Media Training, Bye-Bye Boring Bio Success Story, Public Speaking No Comments

Note: I wrote this article in 2012, and it bears repeating.

James Taylor’s classic song “That’s Why I’m Here” offers lyrics that speak to the desires of many consultants, experts, authors and speakers to get known and get paid. He writes, “Fortune and fame. Such a curious game. Perfect strangers call you by name. Ask you to sing ‘Fire and Rain’ again and again and again.”  This is a refrain that a great many would like to be the song and story of their lives and businesses.

And it’s all within reach, provided there is readiness to make it happen. Justin Beiber, a rock star in his own right was once quoted in USA Today as saying, “People think that being famous is easy, but there’s so much hard work in it.”  He would know.

That said, here is a simple, four-step process to follow to get  “rock star ready” to welcome opportunities to fuel the sales funnel and fan the flames of prosperity in this New Year, even if your particular brand of marketplace magic has nothing to do with singing to throngs of people from a stage:

1. Declare your expertise.

2. Prepare your story.

3. Share your story.

4. Rinse and repeat.

Declare Your Expertise and Kick Generic to the Curb

“Author, Expert and Speaker” isn’t nearly as compelling as: “Humorous Keynote Speaker, Beatles Expert, and Comedy Writer Bill Stainton.” What is your expertise, and does the message break through the clutter to invite a decision maker to take a closer look?

Prepare Your Story

Making it easy for decision makers to get what they want often makes it easier for you to get what you want.  One-size-profile does not suit all situations in today’s technology-charged, interactive, and global marketplace. Those who want to be ready to say YES when opportunity strikes do themselves and gate keepers to leveraged opportunities many favors by anticipating content needs long before invitations to get hired.  Preparing and posting to your website or blog bios of varying word counts – 50, 100, and 300 — makes it easy for those who need your information to find it without having to ask you for a new version at the 11th hour.

Telesummits, webinars, live events, and media interviews offer leveraged ways to share information with the right people.  And each opportunity has its own set of readiness requirements.

Imagine for a moment that an influential internet entrepreneur is coordinating 20 content experts to contribute to her 5-day telesummit.  She is going to need 20 bios, 20 head shots, and 20 sets of interview questions in perfect timing to be in strong position to promote this event to her community, provide content to the speakers so they can promote it to their respective communities, and be well prepared to interview each on event day.  This is no small task that requires extraordinary organizational skills.

Participants who are ready to submit their materials well in advance of the stated deadline show up as “a joy to work with” as they set the stage to do a great job on event day. When they deliver their messages with impact as promised and expected, the event producer is in good position to extend repeat invitations to contribute to future events.  Best of all, that event producer is likely to refer the best performers to other people with impact and influence to open even more doors to opportunity. Those who do the opposite set up a different set of unwelcome consequences.

That is why the key is to be 24/7 ready for opportunity so you never suffer from the 11th hour scramble, message point SOS, or “why didn’t I get my story together before” situations again.  Don’t let these “bio emergency” situations be your reality.

Share Your Story

Once you’ve prepared your story, it’s time to share it with the right people and leveraged audiences to fuel your lead generation pipeline and your future prosperity.  Share your story in a variety of ways including these:

• In the “about me” section of your website or blog;

• Via the profiles you post to social media;

• In the “boilerplate” paragraph of every press release you send;

• In the teleseminar packets you share with your joint venture partners; and via the speaker sheet that clearly describes what kind of a speaker you are, the hot topic you speak about, and how to book you.

Rinse & Repeat

Anything you do one time never delivers enough impact to make the right kind of noise. You’ve got to stick with this and continue to share your message so more of the right people can be compelled to like, trust, respect and do business with you. The key is to focus on the “big rocks” that have the greatest potential to create awareness, excitement, and momentum in your business among your ideal clients. By following each of these essential steps, you create a rolling wheel of revenue generating opportunity for your business that creates powerful momentum as you grow your influence, impact, and income.

Your Call to Action

Get ready now and start sharing your story in all the ways that you can to attract more of the right opportunities with ease and grace and set yourself apart from the crowd as you do.

Following inner guidance results in challenges being resolved, direction clarified and more joy being experienced in life.

Her intuition and experience combined with your inner guidance create an exciting roadmap for your new life. Her sessions are full of laughter, insights and “aha” moments. She is available for one on one sessions and offers courses in dream interpretation and discovering life purpose.

“Life after 50 can be fun, full and fascinating when you partner with your inner guidance system.”

Since 1986, Midlife Mentor Susan Letourneau has been guiding women 50 and better to transform unsettled mid-lives into magical ones filled with joy, peace and meaning. Her clients call her their trusted midlife midwife because she helps them give birth to a whole new second half of life which they love even more than the first.

One of her clients described it this way: “For so long, my life has been all about my job, husband and children. Now that I am retiring and my children have left, I can explore what feels fun and fulfilling to me, and Susan is helping me clarify what those things are!”

If you are feeling lost and would like a trusted guide to help you find joy, you’ve come to the right place. With decades of working with hundreds of women who describe the work as fun, impactful and life-changing, Susan delivers tools that will uplevel your life to joy by guiding you to partner with your inner wisdom – your most powerful ally.

What Susan Says about Her Experience Getting Her Client Attracting Story Done with My Support:

“Nancy Juetten’s ‘Bye-Bye Boring Bio’ training was of tremendous benefit as it made me focus and gain clarity on how to succinctly describe what I do so others can understand. Nancy is a superb wordsmith, able to instantaneously come up with the perfect word or phrase to convey a concept, and she is also very adept at quickly grasping and articulating illusive concepts in a way that is immediately understandable. Although I consider myself to be pretty good with words, my ability pales in comparison to Nancy who is the champion!”

Brilliant Bio Now Gift Template Helps Business Owners Refresh Their First Impression Fast

Be Heard, Bye-Bye Boring Bio Success Story No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Bellevue, WA — With a shiny New Year debuting soon, Business Bio Expert Nancy Juetten says now is the nancy-orange-background (3)time to refresh business bios for optimal client attraction in 2015.

“You really can create know-like-trust at first glance without speaking a word when you let your client-attracting business bio do the talking,” Juetten says.

Today, the solutions to what so many consumers and potential clients are looking for can be found in a quick internet search. The message that comes up quickly can make the difference between picking up the phone, sending an email, or clicking away – never to be seen or heard from again.

That is why creating know-like-trust in your expertise at first glance matters. After all, when potential clients are seeking solutions to problems, they look for proven experts with whom they can wisely invest to give them relief to whatever is ailing them. Whether clients are seeking investment advice, medical care, or eyelash extensions, decisions to engage are often made in an instant based on the information found with the click of a mouse.

Brilliant Bio Template FB Ad 2015Since first impressions are crucial, Juetten is offering her proven Brilliant Bio Now Template as a free download for a limited time.

She also shares 8 tips for business owners to make that first glance count.

== Declare your intention to be major in your field with every social media profile, bio box, and speaker introduction.

“Showcase the expertise you want to be known for in front of your name.” Juetten recommends. “That makes it a lot easier for potential clients to find you in an internet search and through the referrals of champions who understand your expertise well enough to recommend you to others.”

== Convey credibility and a pattern of success over time.

Juetten says that stunning, decisive results are the reason clients invest wisely to benefit from products, programs, and services. “Showcase a consistent, ongoing pattern of accomplishments and relevant credentials to build confidence in your skills and talents and inspire an immediate desire to do business,” she advises.

== Pack your profile with pizzazz, personality and a philosophy of doing business.

“Clients invest in experts they know, like and trust, Juetten says. “Go beyond ‘blah, blah, blah’ and make sure to put YOU in the story. A statement of philosophy, concise and compelling quotes from happy clients, and a statement around your reason for doing this work can make your bio stand out and ring true.”

== Your photo matters.

== Be ready for opportunity whenever it knocks.

== Message consistency keeps buyer confusion at bay.

Juetten explains, “Make sure the stories you share across social media platforms, the ‘about me’ page on your website, and the home page of your website are consistent in communicating who you serve, how you help, and why the work matters. An inconsistent message is bound to confuse a potential buyer, and a confused buyer never buys.”

== Proofread.

== Share your story.

Juetten offers even more specifics and expert support to make business bios world-class and client attracting in an upcoming webinar that will share the 3 biggest bio blunders that even smart business owners make that prevent their ideal clients from hiring them.  Claim your place at
