Playing without the paying

Fellow speaker,

Brian Caplovitz of SpeakerMatch suggests several ways to get non-cash compensation for free speeches:
  • Professional quality video tape - ask for your session to be recorded professionally (at a very high quality of video and sound) - use a lapel mike and do a sound check to make sure it is working properly
  • Ask then to buy your product - ask for the organization to buy your product (at a discount) and give out one to everyone attending
  • Get a testimonial from a high-ranking attendee on the organization's letterhead
