Many Of The Unemployed Are Turning to Speaking As A Way To Share Their Expertise And Make Money While Doing It


With the current unemployment rate at 9.1 percent—and still rising—even those with tons of experience are having trouble finding jobs. And it’s no secret that long-term unemployment imposes financial strain on the unemployed. So what are the options for these highly skilled, experienced individuals?


Many are making their expertise profitable by becoming professional speakers. But growing a speaking business can be a daunting task—unless you have the tools to get your name out there. And SpeakerMatch, the brain child of Bryan Caplovitz, puts those tools right at your fingertips.


Whereas most speaker bureaus give speakers one profile page, the newly launched SpeakerMatch 2.0 ( gives speakers dozens of pages—allowing them to link their biography, programs, blog, speaker inbox, and all their media sources in one place, making their speaker profiles easy to manage and easily accessible.


Instead of having to search for each speaker by name, like most speaker bureaus, SpeakerMatch 2.0 allows meeting planners to find speakers by their program topics, which are keyword intense—meaning they set the keyword tags that help search engines find them.


Part of building a good speaker’s resume is having pictures, blog posts, sample writing pieces, and audio and video clips available. SpeakerMatch 2.0 allows all members to link unlimited pictures, blog posts, documents, and video and audio files to their profiles.


And unlike any other bureau, SpeakerMatch sends each speaker leads without collecting any additional fees or commissions, making it simple for meeting planners to contact each speaker directly.
