This weeks Flash Back Friday takes us to Episode #31.

Jason Hartman interviews Dustin Mathews, Chief Marketing Officer for 7 Figure Speaking Empire, 2010 Speaker Coach Of The Year and 2010 Infusionsoft’s Marketer of The Year Finalist, about how to properly start a profitable speaking career.

Dustin has managed and marketed hunders of events, seminars and boot camps, sometimes generating over $12 million dollars in a year. Dustin prides himself on transforming a new, green speaker into a beloved, sought after speaker. He's also the author of How To Get Rich Working For FREE, and Secrets of the Real Estate Millionaires.

The fundamentals of being a successful speaker haven't changed: impeccable credibility, social proof, engaging stories that impact the sale, an enticing offer, these are all needed. What HAS changed is the mindset of your audience. And if you don't understand how the mindset has changed, you're not going to get through to them, and you won't be successful.

So if you're getting lower conversion and sales rates than you have before, it's likely because you're using old, dated strategies and techniques. The formula for profitable speaking is different now, and you have to understand it to further your career. Listen in as Jason and Dustin go over the NEW way you need to be addressing your audience to make your listeners your customers.
