Anyone who is familiar with me knows how many paid presentations I have done. Over 3300 to date. I’m not really bragging, because I know you may have a ton of speeches under your belt as well. But I will make a point here. Most speakers record their presentations because it’s a great way to learn to be a better presenter. Watching yourself back on tape during a speech is a great learning tool. But what are you doing with that old footage?

The hours and hours of tape you have could be working for you right now driving a ton of search engine traffic to your speaker websites. It could be ranking you high in search engine results and giving you access to new clients. Most importantly of all, it could be showing off your expertise and branding your speaker business, getting a jump on your competition.

I’m talking about turning that old footage into online video for Youtube, Facebook and dozens of other places that come up high in search ranks and show your speaking skills off to the world. Over 70% of people now actively watch online video to get their information. It’s quicker than reading, can be watched on their mobile devices and is far more exciting and dynamic than text-based information alone. Videos can make profitable conversions faster and easier than an article or copy (and that includes testimonials) for speakers because a video shows you in action. A couple of recorded seminars can equal hundreds of short videos when edited down.

Find yourself someone who can help you convert those old recordings and start making big money re-purposing the footage. You’ll be glad you did!

Does this sound like you?

You can’t understand why the business reporter at your local newspaper has quoted your competitor in five separate stories but hasn’t called you once.

Your company sends out more than two dozen news releases every year about new employees and promotions, but they result in little more than a few lines of type.

The 12-page speech your boss wrote when he spoke at the local Rotary Club luncheon would have made an excellent column for the local business magazine. But after you mailed it to the editor, you never heard a word.

If your attempts at media coverage have fallen flat, quit grumbling and start taking a proactive approach to free publicity by identifying interesting, compelling story ideas the media need. Yes, NEED. Newspapers, magazines and trade publications have hundreds of thousands of column inches to fill. TV and radio stations have hundreds of hours of news and community interest programs they must broadcast. The number of media outlets is greater than ever, and competition is fierce for advertising dollars, viewers and subscribers. The secret to savvy media relations is knowing exactly what they want, then giving it to them.

Find out how free publicity can change the way you do business!

You know that public speaking book you have always wanted to write but never did because you would have to pay the printer to print hundreds more than you need and then store them forever in your garage? I have good news for you. Now with print-on-demand, you can have a few or many books printed at a nominal price. This means you can order just enough to sell from your website, at your book signing, at back-of-the-room sales during your seminars, or for giving away to promote your business.

Each book is printed when you or your client orders it and you only pay for the quantity ordered, whether it is one or 1,000. At Antion & Associates, we’re using createspace.com for print-on-demand. It’s a free online self-publishing tool that helps you prepare your book for printing.

While compiling and formatting your book takes time, the actual process of uploading your book to createspace is very simple and consists of three basic steps:

* Enter information about your book into the createspace software.

* Upload a.pdf file of the content.

* Upload a.pdf file of the cover.

After you upload the .pdf files, you can order a proof copy for a few dollars and createspace will print it and mail it to you. As soon as you approve the proof copy, createspace will make it available for purchase and even distribute it through Amazon.com and other outlets. When you or a customer orders, createspace will print as few or as many copies as you want. The price of the book covers the production costs and your royalty.

It’s a win-win because you have no setup fees and no inventory to store. In addition, Amazon offers a lot of tips to help you self-publish your book through createspace.com.
