'Create Dazzling Videos to Transfix Audiences
and Springboard Your Business
(WEBINAR)'

Guest Expert: Eric Chester, CSP, CPAE

Webinar video:

If you order the CD or MP3, you will get a link to the recorded video of the online webinar.

The Program:

If a picture is worth 1000 words, what's a compelling video worth? Tens of thousands of dollars. Perhaps six figures. Maybe millions. If it's a video that is well-crafted and so intriguing others can't help but pass it along — to their many followers, Facebook friends, and LinkedIn connections.

Amazing, original short videos can help you secure more engagements, promote your event or presentation, enhance your program, launch your book, and create more fans.

Can you get away with a talking-head video? Or a PowerPoint slide show with your droning narration? Not anymore. Not if you want to really cause some buzz. Not if you yearn to turn viewers into buyers.

It's not that hard to produce an enticing video. But even if you hire a producer or animator, you must see this session so you know how to direct them. What you don't know (and perhaps think you do) will cost you many headaches, delays and much money.

In this webinar, you'll view short clips of videos to illustrate the points followed by Eric's commentary. You'll want to see what he is talking about to fully appreciate his remarks.

Get inspired to create a buzz-worthy video and learn some shortcuts. Eric is a master at creating innovative and intriguing videos. See a sample.

You will learn:

  • why original, creative video makes you stand out far ahead of your competition
  • why clients will adore you for helping them promote their event and your session in short promo videos
  • how video interviews interspersed in your presentations can cement your message
  • how video gets your book promoted more effectively than an email or snail mail campaign
  • how to understand the step-by-step process of creating a compelling video
  • how to find and work effectively with video vendors

The Program:

Do you know what ROI and ROA (Return on Attendance) actually mean in the meetings world? If a meeting planner asked you, "What do you do in your programs to ensure my ROI, and can you prove its effectiveness?" would you have an answer? Do you know how focusing on ROA can increase your bookings and income? After this session, you will have answers to all three questions.

'Use Unusual Products
for More Credibility and Bigger Audiences,
and to Help Your Bottom Line'

Guest Expert: Mike Domitrz, CSP

The Program:

You're already selling books, eBooks, CDs, DVDs and/or MP3s. So what else could you offer your clients, audiences and website visitors? What could not only yield additional sales, but will help cement you as an expert and bring more attendees to your presentations?

It's time to think beyond the commonplace products. Learn how to adapt Mike's experiences to your market and your goals — all while reinforcing your key messages and brand. While Mike's organization focuses on spreading their mission, you'll be able to think of many ways to turn these ideas into a profit for your speaking business.

Mike has learned how to create and produce resources for markets (education and military) that don't typically have a lot of money budgeted for materials on the issue he discusses. His ideas can easily translate to corporate and association clients. He shares what he's found to work — as well as what hasn't worked — when creating and selling out-of-the norm materials.

You will learn:

  • design and sell posters, pins, t-shirts, and even temporary tattoos that increase your revenue and buzz for your program
  • utilize pre-sold products to get more attendees in your breakout room
  • provide products that cement your message and brand with high value and visibility long after you're gone
  • promote your helpful materials (hopefully your products) from the stage without a sales pitch
  • get more by giving away your resources

More about our guest expert:

Who is Mike Domitrz? In his first 12 months of speaking professionally, he spoke to over 50 campuses, published a critically acclaimed book, and built a reputation for providing programming no one else was giving to students.
