Even More Questions Answered

Will my credit card be automatically charged each month?
Yes.
I just launched a new business. Would this work for me?
Yes. This is a great service for those who want to build their authority while converting clients from speaking.
What kind of speakers are events looking for?

Events are looking for a wide range of speakers. The most popular topics are leadership, personal development, communication, health & wellness, diversity & inclusion and marketing. This is a small number of topics that are sought after by events. If you have the knowledge, you will land a speaking gig.

Can I use this if I only want to sell from the stage?

In our experience, selling from the stage events are ususally tied to "pay-to-play" or invitation only seminars. We typically avoid posting those events because they tend to have higher expectations of speakers from marketing to investing. The events posted are mainly for those who want to market to audience without a direct sales pitch which is typically frowned upon.

I wan to make as much money as possible from speaking but I don't have a topic yet. Can I still use this?

Well, things would go a lot smoother if you had something to talk about. It would be best to join one of our Office Hours or take a course to figure out where you want to start.

Do I need to sign a contract?

No. You do not have to sign a contract. You can cancel at anytime if you are paying month to month. If you signed for a yearly subscription, you can still cancel but you will not be refunded for the remaining services.

How are the speaking opportunities delivered?
The speaking opportunities will be inside of our platform where you can log in and access all archive events and upcoming events without them being lost in your inbox.
Do you provide pitch templates that I can cut and paste?

Not exactly. Since our Founder spent over 4 years receiving pitches from people who wanted to speak, she feels the copy-and-paste templates give you away quickly and lead to faster no's. Inside the iFind You Close platform, she does give her philosphy and strategy on how to pitch in a way that gets you  booked faster.

 

I am terrified of public speaking. Will this work for me?
No. At this time, we do not offering coaching services for those wanting to get over their fear of public speaking.
I am just starting out as a speaker. Will this work for me?
It can work for you if you a subject and audience you want to target. If you are needing some help getting started, please book a consulting session to gain direction on where to go with your speaking career.
Will I get individual coaching or group coaching with this service?

Individual and group coaching are not a part of this program at this time. There are weekly Office Hours for members to attend and individual coaching is available at an hourly cost.

Can I cancel my subscription at any time?
Yes. There are no contracts and you can cancel at anytime.
How long will it take me to pitch one speaking gig?

We have estimated that it takes about 45 minutes to pitch a speaking opportunity as long as you have the necessary items in place.

I am looking for an agent. Do you provide this kind of service?
As of right now, we do not operate as agents for speakers.
I refuse to speak for free. Are all of the opportunities paid?

Unfortunately, we have yet to find the magic list of clients with how much they want to pay before knowing what you have to offer. We will let you know as soon as we find it though. For now, all of the events span a range from compensation being unavailable to available to negotiable. We highly recommend studying up on negotiating because every thing is negotiable.

Do you post television, freelance writing opportunities or podcast interview requests?

No. We only post opportunities for those who want to speak on stage.
