FAQ

What is SpeakerMatch?

Did you know that 30 out of every 31 people who try to launch a speaking career fail within the first few months? Many of these are talented speakers with valuable insights to share. So, where do they go wrong? They fail to learn the business of finding an audience.

That’s where we come in…

Our system provides an affordable solution for emerging speakers like you to be seen and noticed by meeting planners. For just one flat fee, you’ll get a listing in our speaker directory seen by hundreds of planners each month, and access to our online database of speaking opportunities. This will save you the time and frustration of cold-calling and emailing with no response.

What’s more, we’ll ensure you’re aware of opportunities you may have missed, boosting your chances of getting booked. We’ll also provide you with a profile webpage, the ability to apply instantly to gigs online, and ongoing marketing advice.

With our system, you’ll get warm leads and be able to connect with meeting planners who are actively seeking speakers like you. All in less than 2½ minutes!

How much does SpeakerMatch cost?

Our basic service starts at just $30 every 4 weeks. You can save with an annual subscription. There are no long-term contracts, service fees, or commissions. You keep everything you earn in speaking fees. You can cancel, upgrade, or downgrade your service at any time with no penalty.

There’s no need to pay extra for expensive web hosting, design services, and SEO specialists. We’ll handle it all for you!

Do I need to be a professional speaker to use SpeakerMatch?

No, you do not need to be a professional speaker to join SpeakerMatch. In fact, we primarily cater to the Emerging Speaker market by helping these speakers be seen and found by meeting planners and event organizers. If you’re (1) not earning a full-time living through speaking, and (2) you aren’t earning at least $5,000 per speech, we consider you to be an Emerging Speaker.

Of course, some professional speakers use our service as well to gain exposure, try out new material, and reach new audiences. Remember, it’s not possible for a meeting planner to book you if they don’t know you exist. We help every speaker increase their chances of being seen by the right planner, at the right time.

How do you send me speaking leads?

We’ve got a complete online job board and application system made just for speakers. You will receive direct requests from meeting planners as well as notifications about open calls for speakers. And you can search our online database for more opportunities.

We facilitate your communication with meeting planners through our online tools. This lets us “nudge” you and the planner by email, SMS, and phone if messages are not responded to in a timely manner.

It’s as easy as plugging in your information, much like you would do with any social media site like Facebook or LinkedIn. PLUS, we have some nifty AI tools to help you create a profile listing that really resonates with meeting planners and event organizers.

What People Say About Us

Here’s just a few samples of comments from our speakers.

Rad Watkins

    Man, I have to say I have never had the customer service I have received from SpeakerMatch from any other company. I think they are outstanding! I have never seen a more professional and customer service based business. My first gig through SpeakerMatch paid for 10 years worth of the service. SpeakerMatch has paid for itself every year I have used it and I have received gigs that have landed me 5-figure speaking fees. I can’t speak to other people’s experiences but in my experience, I see that SpeakerMatch is a bargain, the staff is super willing to help, and the rest is up to the user. Thanks guys for all you have done for me!

                I would like to say thank you to SpeakerMatch. I was a little reluctant to sign up, but did so on Friday. I woke up this morning to a new lead and finalizing details for a conference in November today. Wow, that’s fast! I was not expecting anything that quick, but it does go to show that advertising and investing do pay off! Thanks again, SpeakerMatch.
