Free with a fee

Fellow speaker,

Brian Caplovitz of SpeakerMatch suggests several ways to get non-cash compensation for free speeches:
  • Put your notes online to get people to visit your website - give a promotional item branded with your information to remind people how to access your website
  • Ask them to allow you to sell your products before, during, and after the speech - this is about making the audience aware that you have a service/product for sale that is will benefit them
  • Get a tax break for your speeches - get advice from a tax professional how to apply "comped" professional fees
