Professional Speaker and Trainer Investment Guide

Budgets drive decisions. But before you settle on a specific speaker - or number, think about how want the speaker to engage your audience: as an entertainer, motivator or educator. Even though speakers may cover similar topics, each has a unique delivery style. Based on her real life experiences as a consultant, thought leader, industry analyst and educator, Barbara highlights her presentations with her original photography. A former national sales trainer, Barbara knows how to engage, enlighten and motivate her audiences to take action. Choose a speaker whose personality, presentations and experience best matches the needs of your group. While most speakers are willing to negotiate fees, the actual time they invest in developing an outstanding experience for your group is much more than the amount of actual presentation time. Investment levels vary depending on a variety of factors. For example, selecting an existing presentation is much less than commissioning a custom production with a more impressive impact. For comparison purposes, professional speechwriters may earn around $7500 for a 50-minute speech, or $150 per minute. Published authors and celebrities may command $10,000 and up per appearance. Look for ways to get added returns on your investment. A speaker with an influential social network can bring visibility and attention to your group. As founder of Social Media Club Chicago and a popular blogger, Barbara is open to talking about promoting your events via wiredPRworks social networks. Sponsor Promotion Partnerships Barbaras sponsor promotion partnerships deliver added value in the way of digital, direct and dynamic exposure throughout wiredPRworks social networks, video and digital PR channels; bringing targeted online attention to the event, speaker sponsors and attendees.

How the WIRED System Connects Organizations with Communities

By Barbara Rozgonyi, Social Media Transformer

Mixing marketing with social media can be time-consuming, confusing and not very effective unless you have an organized system that mixes search, marketing, social, community and planning. Thats why I developed the WI-R-E-D system [(c) 2009-2011 Barbara Rozgonyi] for my clients, students and audiences. WORDS Lets start at the very beginning. Communication is based on language. So is search. Sure, pictures are worth thousands of words and thats why I take thousands of pictures every year. But, words are how we convey messages and as importantly, how people find what theyre looking for online. Try searching by drawing a picture. You cant. What kinds of words do you need? Check out Googles keyword suggestion tool for ideas. INTENTIONS One of the biggest mistakes most companies and organizations make is not being intentional enough about what theyre doing. Its business as usual, what ever usual is. What if the approach became business as unusual? Wouldnt that get more attention and better results? Borrowing a tip from journalism classes, think about who, what, when, where, how and most importantly, why youre in business or why youre working where you are. If you dont know why youre doing what youre doing and for money or to fund programs is not a good answer then maybe its time to be the why you want to be. Then, how can you stretch your business out to reach your most profitable customer segments? ROUTES Communications, like water, flows through many channels. The internet is a sea, twitter is a stream, Facebook is a great lake and LinkedIn is a well-stocked pond.

Internal communications is like backyard pools and PR rains stories. One of the biggest objections we hear about new marketing is the sense of overwhelm and confusion that all of these options cause for not only the companies, but their people and customers. Its true. There is too much information out there. So, how do you keep track of it and stand out so people can find you? Social media is resolving this problem with lists, groups and feeds. Set up yours so you can find your people and they can find you. EXPERIENCES Stories are everywhere: do you tell yours? Asking people to tell their stories, both good and bad, gives you insights into your agency you cant get anywhere else. Capturing and conveying emotions in your marketing brings people closer. And, how people feel when they interact with your organization everywhere builds your brand. Inviting people to share their stories improves relationships and gets others talking and sharing your good news. DESIGN Now that you have your words, intentions, routes, experiences, youre ready to design your 3D wired branding approach. Think of your organization as a publisher. What news, special features and community events do you need to let people know about? Plan your communications around the W-I-R-E-D approach, align your communications with your business goals, choose a few metrics to measure and get started. Youre on your way to successful social media marketing that conserves budgets, maximizes time and nurtures your in real life and online communities.
