How to make it as a public speaker


Flushed with success from last night's London Corinthians meeting, I was asked afterwards by a couple of new members as to how one becomes a professional public speaker.

1. Learn how to speak. Joining London Corinthians or other Toastmaster International clubs is a first great stepping stone. After a period of time, you can join the PSA

2. Get a website

3. Learn how to market yourself. My colleague at the PSA, Graham Jones, has some great advice.

4. Start blogging!

By the way, my Google Ranking at http://www.jeremyjacobs.com is now rated at 4. Regular blogging works!

Yep definitely works I find that the mixture of a linked blog and websites is very effective, of course in my business it’s traditional that the whole thing be a maze and that one actively discourages customers.

Jeremy,

Good list. The other thing I would add is speak for free at some local organizations. It can help promote you as a speaker and give you a taste of speaking in front a non "safe" audience such as Toastmasters.
