This session will provide specific strategies to truly help speakers "market through the clutter", by focusing on decision-makers who have the budget to hire you for the topics in which you present. Speakers must have a SYSTEM & PROCESS for sales & marketing, based on the highest income generating activities each day. This session will also de-bunk marketing myths which lead many speakers astray, wasting CRAZY amounts of time & money on shiny objects with a poor ROI. Andy will illustrate his "step-by-step" process to leverage every speech into many, using his proven "Where there's ONE, there's a TON" marketing method. Lastly, each attendee will receive actual copywriting templates for introductory client emails, follow-ups, soliciting testimonials, AND to refer an NSA colleague after every event.

- Learn how to identify and communicate with decision-makers who have the budget to hire you for the topics in which you present.
- Learn the KEY difference in "List Building" vs. "Prospect Building"
- Learn the power of leverage & referral marketing, strategically turning one speech into many through exploding new niche markets.
