️Episode 113 – Convert Speaking Opportunities Into Consulting Leads

This episode is part two of the series surrounding leveraging speaking engagements to build your consulting buyer pipeline.

Booking a speaking opportunity is the first step in starting a relationship with each audience member. 

You’ll want to capture the audience member’s contact information so you can build and nurture a relationship with them after the event. There’s an easy, scalable, and effective way to do this. I will share it with you on today’s podcast episode.

Creating this customer journey naturally helps foster a relationship that can evolve into an opportunity for consulting.

Specifically, I explain the essential steps to build relationships with audience members through:

  • Encouraging listeners to volunteer their contact information
  • Leveraging technology to maintain an accurate email list
  • Implementing a lead conversion plan in time for your next speaking engagement.
