I'm something of an expert on a rather niche subject (directly related to my work), and aside from word-of-mouth recommendations my best way to acquire new clients has been presentations/speaking gigs. I spend half an hour or so teaching about my field and almost always have a few people approach me afterward, many of whom soon become clients.

I've done local rotary clubs, alumni groups, informal university lectures, etc., again mostly via word-of-mouth (as in a current client recommends me to their group). I seem to have maxed out my personal network though, and I'm trying to figure out how to go about advertising myself as a speaker. I don't charge anything to speak, it's all simply an opportunity to educate attendees about my field and allow them to approach me if interested in my services.

Any recommendations? My first thought was to create a list of local organizations likely to want speakers (such as rotary clubs) and basically cold call to offer my services, but I'm interested if anyone here has dealt with something similar.

Whenever you get a conference invitation in your industry reply to them and ask do you need a speaker on xyz subject.

PM me!

Also, there are companies who solicit lecturers. you bring the material, they do the BizDev. Their cut is usually a big one (percentage wise). Look those up as well by searching for lecturers.

Hello guys.

I have my own niche site and there are a few things i'm not entirely sure how to do. All i really know how to do is pump out lots of content when i commit myself to it (with a little help from a friend who volunteers for free).

Is there anyone here who is an expert on niche sites and affiliate marketing?

I need help with things like SEO optimization and landing page design at the least.

The only expert i know of in these areas is Kyle Trouble and he's gone offline from the internet for 2 weeks in Thailand.

Any response or advice or etc is greatly appreciated.

I've just read that there are now millionaires
doing podcasting after Spotify aquired a
podcasting company.

I suppose its more convenient for commuters to
listen to music and podcasts than just watching
youtube videos or reading blogs.

Anyone making any money from podcasting or youtube
videos? I hear that toy reviews is one popular youtube
video if you have kids playing with toys.

I just started a podcast. Amazed by the reach of it with even a bit of basic marketing.

I’m not looking to monétise it as it’s purely for my own amusement but there are people that do. I imagine you have to be going a long time and have a substantial following to do it.

If the budget is good, I can deal with that, and more, as far design is concerned.

PM me with details if interested.
