Here is a MAJOR lesson as a speaker that I’ve seen people miss entirely. Here it is…
Be A Cool Person.
It’s not uncommon for speakers to step on the feet of their peers when working together. Or talk bad about another speaker to potential clients thinking that will help them get the gig.
I have had it happen to me and I have seen this happen numerous times and it’s ugly to see.
Here is why it’s stupid.
Your peers can provide you with AMAZING opportunities they can’t do or decide to bring you in on.
If they don’t like you naturally those opportunities won’t happen.
I’m bringing this up because a fellow presenter called me last minute and said Eric can you do this gig tomorrow afternoon. I looked at the schedule and sure I would love to do it.
I do it for people and people do it for me and it happens because of one of the easiest marketing strategies you can employ. Wait for it…
Just be a cool person that people want to work with.
Have an Amazing Day and thank you for attending another episode of Eric’s Escapades.
Sincerely, Eric "Last Minute And Still Ready" Anderson
P.S. If I did not point this out let me be very clear. Being a cool person is a REAL MARKETING strategy. I can’t predict who will call but I know someone will call with these types of peer to peer opportunities ALL THE TIME!
