    DIY Marketing for Speakers

    Aiden Crawford

    Your business is not unique. But it’s probably different enough from other speakers that an out-of-the-box marketing session isn’t going to help you. Before deciding on tactics, let’s look at your business model. Who’s your ideal client? Why are they going to choose you over the person offering similar services for free? Once you have that part of your business model sorted, everything else falls into place because you have aligned your marketing to the people willing to pay you. Join Short Circuit Media’s Aidan Crawford as he shows you how to do it yourself!
