Get Great Testimonials

Everyone needs testimonials for their books and you’ll discover it is much easier than you might have thought. All you have to do is ask!

Start out by sending an email request to those who are in your database. Tell them you are looking for their help. Explain in simple details what you would like them to say. Write out an example of what you would like them to say for you.

Make sure you let them know their opinions are valued by you.

Associations

Have you ever heard of a topic that didn’t have an association? What you will find is there are associations for every possible topic you could imagine. All associations have monthly meetings, quarterly functions and annual events. They will bring in a speaker for each of these events as education, entertainment or motivation and inspiration.

I started out by speaking free at local association functions and then was asked to speak at quarterly events for an average of $3,500. About half of the time I would be asked to speak at the annual events for $10-15,000. The larger the association the bigger budget they have. And once you have developed a reputation for being a speaker at associations, you will have a never ending list of other associations who will want to hire you for their events.
