Question: Why haven’t I started speaking on major events and if I believe that it helps with your marketing?
First part of the Q: I’ve tried speaking but just haven’t worked out. I’ve applied, submitted, and the answer is always the same. NO! Not to say I’m giving up, but it does get frustrating at times.
I think most of the major events work on a who you know and close friends type of thing which is why you see pretty much the same group of speakers at different events.
Second part of the Q: No I don’t believe it will help with “marketing”. It helps with branding YOU as the brand and an authority figure …if you’re into that type of thing.
I’m not the “brand” anymore. I’ve worked my ass off to create products that stand alone as a brand so I don’t need that type of exposure to make them successful. My products don’t rely on me or my name to have success.
The product just has to be damn good, which btw it is!
They have a life of their own and that’s what I love so much about all my businesses now. I could actually walk away for a bit and have my businesses run smoothly.
