More tips to make you stand out in the crowd with speakers bureaus!

Candid anonymous comments from speakers bureaus ...


Call on the phone. Gives me a better instinctive impression of the speaker's voice and approach. Also, gives me a more personal introduction of speaker and his/her area of expertise. Then I ask him/her to send their promotional material. Then I can connect the voice with the picture and information. It makes more of an impression on me.
__

I prefer calls - And, I prefer that it be after 4:00 p.m. so that they are not cutting in on my precious marketing time. Time is money!
__
A phone call is OK when the speaker is referred by someone we know and respect.
__

I prefer a short e-mail query from prospective speakers. No attachments.
__

Email. I don't know any bureau that can handle the amount of full promotional packages that could come in from potential speakers, in physical office space alone.
__

I prefer an email request with printed info attached and fees so I can see if there is a possible fit; if so then a full promo kit.
