11 Key Elements to a Successful Speaker Website - Grow Your Speaking Business

11 Key Elements to a Successful Speaker Website


Want to have a website that makes a planner say, “Wow, this speaker is amazing!”? Your website is like your online home where people can learn all about you and what you do. Let’s explore the key things you need to make your speaker website awesome!

11 Key Elements to a Successful Speaker Website

1. A Catchy Home Page: Make a Great First Impression

Your home page is the first thing people see, so it should be amazing! Use bright colors, big pictures, and exciting words to grab attention. Think of it as the cover of your storybook – it should make people want to read more.

2. About You: Share Your Story

People love to know who they’re listening to. Create a page that tells your story. Why did you become a speaker? What cool things have you done? Make it friendly and fun – like you’re talking to a new friend.

3. Your Speaking Topics: What Do You Talk About?

List the topics you love to speak about. Are you an expert in something special? Do you have fun stories to tell? Make each topic sound super interesting, so people want to hear you talk about them.

4. Videos of Your Talks: Show, Don’t Just Tell

Videos are like a sneak peek of your talks. If people can see how great you are on stage, they’ll be more likely to book you. Share a few videos of your best talks on your website.

5. Testimonials: What Others Say About You

Happy audiences and event organizers can be your best promoters. Share their words about how awesome you are. It’s like having a bunch of cheerleaders cheering for you!

6. Your Blog: Share Your Thoughts

A blog is a great way to share ideas and keep your website fresh. Write about things you’re passionate about, tips for public speaking, or fun things you’ve learned. It shows you’re not just a speaker but also a thinker and writer.

7. Your Speaker Onesheet

This is very important and one of your top marketing tools. Planners will need this in a downloadable PDF.

8. Contact Information: Make It Easy to Reach You

People should find it super easy to contact you. Include your email, phone number, or contact form. You can also add links to your social media. Ensure this info is easy to find, like at the top or bottom of every page.

9. Upcoming Events: Where Can People Hear You Next?

Keep a section for your upcoming speaking events. It’s exciting for people to see where you’ll be speaking next. They might even want to come and hear you!

10. Easy Navigation: Make Exploring Your Site Fun and Easy

Your website should be easy to move around in. Like a good book, people should be able to flip through it without getting lost. Clear menus and buttons that say things like “Learn More” or “Next Page” are really helpful.

11. Mobile-Friendly: Good on All Screens

A lot of people use their phones to go online. Ensure your website looks good and works well on phones and tablets, not just computers.

Building a successful speaker website is like creating a fun and informative book about you. It’s a place where people can learn about your speaking magic, watch you in action, and get excited to hear you live. Include these 11 key elements to make your website stand out and attract more fans and event organizers. 

Remember, your website is your online stage – make it shine!
