There is one personality flaw that many professional speakers have in common; a distaste for selling. Many a potentially great speaker have left the industry because of their inability and unwillingness to pick up the phone and make sales calls. This is the basic method Ed Rigsbee, CSP Certified Speaking Professional, CAE Certified Association Executive, has successfully used to get association and society business for the past 20+ years, and he still used this method today.
Stick to the basics and business will come your way. The basic idea is to write articles intended for trade and professional publications (I am pre-supposing that you have great content). Connect first with the editors of trade and professional publications, via phone and email. Freely give them your work, yes at no charge. Build an outrageously successful relationship with them and then let the editors be your bridge to the meeting planners. And, the by-product is additional business; corporate decision makers will read your articles and call you to speak at their meetings. Follow the plan and you will get association bookings.
