15 Ways for Speakers to Earn More Profits
There is huge potential to create additional profits from your speeches by partnering with a professional transcriptionist to convert your audio recordings into text transcripts.
1) Speakers and consultants often deliver their presentations via teleconference calls and record them for sale later. Once transcribed, the transcript can be provided free to paying attendees as a value-added item or formatted into a special report for an additional product to sell.
2) Another valuable service you can provide to your clients is to send them a transcript of your speech ahead of time. Provide a single copy and allow them to make a specific number of copies to distribute. If you give the speech often, the cost of the transcription will pay for itself over time.
3) With your speech transcribed into text on paper, you can easily customize it for new clients, add new material, and delete outdated sections.
4) A certain percentage in an audience will have hearing problems and not be able to understand you clearly. Promise them a transcript of your speech, or one that was transcribed earlier from another time you gave basically the same speech.
5) If a prospective client asks if you've ever talked about a specific topic, you can send an excerpt from a transcribed speech that you gave for another client that addressed that topic.
6) If you originally wrote up a speech you give often, but over time you've ad-libbed, added new material, changed things here and there, and your current, evolved speech is quite different from your original write-up, have a recording transcribed for an up-to-date transcript of your speech as you currently deliver it.
7) Rather than mailing a tape or a video to a prospective client, it's faster to email or fax a transcript, saving time AND money. Even if you still mail a tape or video, this will get your information in text form to your client sooner for review, and they'll be even more certain it's worth taking the time to also review your audio or video.
8) Provide reporters and editors with transcripts of your speeches to make it as easy as possible for them to give you press coverage, making it more likely to create good publicity for yourself and your client.
9) Have recordings of your radio and TV interviews transcribed and convert the transcripts into articles, book chapters, or to add to your press kit.
10) When planning to make a video, provide a transcript of your material to your video team to make the planning process easier for them. Also convert the transcript into a workbook to go along with your video.
11) You can build a database of questions that get asked frequently along with your answers in Q&A sessions during your presentations for a valuable collection of information. Once transcribed, the material can be converted into material for your website FAQ's section, or into handouts. NOTE: Make sure the person asking the question has a microphone, OR fully repeat the question before giving your answer.
12) Rather than asking your client to write and mail a referral letter after your speech and the event is all over, catch them while your presentation is fresh in their mind and suggest they tape their recommendation on your recorder, and let them know you'll have it transcribed and submit it to them for approval before using it. You can get other recorded referrals for transcription from attendees at the same time.
13) As you're driving away from giving a speech, record your thoughts that are tumbling through your mind such as things to change next time, things to remember, and stream-of-consciousness ideas that flow freely. Once transcribed, you can form a plan of action based on your own heightened inspiration spurred by the adrenaline of a successful event, and increase your overall success and productivity.
14) Convert recordings of your speeches into material for a book or ebook to help establish your reputation as a credible expert in your field and create additional profits for your business. Edit the transcripts into chapters, add a table of contents, a cover, etc. You can have it bound simply or submit it for professional publication, or convert it into an ebook.
15) Once you have a book, have it professionally recorded by reading it out loud for an audio product to sell.
Partnering with a professional transcriptionist is a solid business strategy that can save you time, increase your creativity, and -- most importantly -- add profits to your bottom line.

Boost Your Confidence, Credibility, and Career
There's one skill you can develop that will boost your confidence, credibility and career. It's public speaking. If the very thought makes you queasy, you're not alone. For some people, only death is more frightening. For others, death is preferable. Are you the latter? Avoiding the spotlight? Suffering not just butterflies but sheer panic? Dry mouth? Shaking hands? Flushed or pale face? If this sounds like you, then consider overcoming-or at least controlling-your fear. You can start by attending a Toastmaster's meeting and picking up a couple of books for additional help.
Speech Coach?s Tips to Public Speaking Success
It is inevitable that at times during our careers or personal lives; we will be required to provide a presentation or public speech to a group of people. Perhaps the group is a group of peers; perhaps the audience will be senior or top-level management; perhaps the group will be comprised of people who wish to learn something from you. This is an opportunity that can boost or hinder your career path. When the day comes to provide a public presentation, will you know what to do to create and present an effective speech? Will you put the audience to sleep? Or will you be able to hold the attention of most of the audience? While you may wish you had listened more during that speech coach's presentation last year, you still have to get ready to hold the interest of an audience for a specific period of time. Professional speech coaches will always stress that preparation is the key to success in public speaking.
If You Arent a Little Nervous, You Arent Paying Attention
The fear of public speaking is one of the most common forms of phobia. That would be fine if this fear did not hold you back in your social and career advancement.
Knowing Your Boundaries
While delivering a speech, it is clear that we will be judged and perceived in a certain way based on our ideas, words, and body language. Taking a risk and really thinking out of the box can be quite rewarding and at the same time, it can be a disaster. The famous quote "there is a thin line between genius and insanity" probably stems from this. In order to remain on the genius side it is important to recognize our boundaries.
How to be a Great Speaker
Did you know that great speakers are often nervous with butterflies in their stomach before giving a presentation?

Stretch to relax. Rise on your toes and reach for the ceiling, with your head back. Tighten your muscles from legs up through abdomen, and then release. Relax the neck and shoulder muscles, letting your head loll on your neck in different directions.

For Speaking Ease, Forgive Your Younger Self
I love the Disney movie The Kid with Bruce Willis. In it he plays a stressed-out, high-power image consultant. He wears expensive suits, lives in a chic, elegantly furnished home and has all the money he can spend. His biggest challenge comes when a young boy--his younger self--comes to stay with him. He doesn't recognize himself at first, but then comes to see that he can heal himself by comforting the boy he was and accepting the man he is. (Don't worry, there's still a lot of other fun, surprising stuff that happens so I haven't TOTALLY given the plot away.)

Using Your Natural Style On Stage
We were both speakers at the same convention presenting on the same day-but what a difference. I am tall, while she's short. I am a magnetic speaker-I draw people in with stories and examples. She's a dynamic speaker- humorous and vivacious. We both were hits-the audience loved us.

To Insure Success in Speaking: Anticipate
We all know that to be a careful driver on the highways, we need always to anticipate. When we see brake lights ahead, we anticipate some traffic problem and slow down. If we come to an intersection we look ahead to see if anyone is entering it before us. In like manner, to be an effective speaker we need to anticipate.
7 Sure Fire Ways To Overcome Stage Fright When Speaking Or Performing
Prayer or Meditation: If you're a believer you can pray if you are not at least take time to clear your mind and meditate. (On clearing your mind) A short prayer for God to guide you and give you the right words can't ever hurt. God has promised to give believers words even when they are under a heavy persecution; Mt 10:19. Why wouldn't he also help when there isn't any persecution? He would. Obviously you must do this before you speak. If you don't pray before you speak you might find yourself praying in the middle of your presentation for God to get you out of it as quickly as possible. Do not overlook this little gem because although it seems unimportant, it can actually be what makes or breaks your performance or presentation.
