How to become part of the Charli Jane Speaker Community:
Charli Jane Speakers Club: Simply go here, sign up and you’re good to go! You will have instant access to numerous speaker resources to assist you in growing your business. This is an ongoing club that auto-renews each week/month/year depending on your sign-up option. We look forward to having you as a part of the Charli Jane Community!
I am a speaker’s agent, can I sign up as a member?
While we love connecting with anyone supporting Speakers, we do not allow agencies, bureaus, or speaker agents as members. If you proceed and are found to be an agency, bureau, or speaker agent, you understand your subscription will be cancelled & no refund will be given.
As a Member of Charli Jane Speakers I understand that I have access to the speaking leads database. Do you determine who the speaker will be?
No, Charli Jane is not the final decision maker. Charli Jane Speakers provides a service, one part of which is that we find leads for our members, leads are called in, researched, or submitted via our online ‘Request a Speaker” form. If you find a lead, it is your responsibility to follow-up on the lead either by submitting your proposal online to the hiring party or sending an email directly to the event organizer.
Where do I find the leads?
Once you join the Charli Jane Speaker family you will be directed to the member dashboard where all the goodies are waiting for you. You will find a link to your speaking opportunities in your member dashboard.
Are all the leads free speaking engagements?
No, some leads will either be free, small fee or expenses paid. However, we have often seen speaking leads originally posted as no fee gigs converted to fee-based gigs, because the organizer was so happy with the speakers that they offered them a paid opportunity for other events. Please see success stories here: https://charlijane.com/happy-members/
Speaking for free is okay and can be an excellent opportunity to gain additional exposure, build your credibility, network, and make an excellent profit if you have products to sell. Keep your mind open and don’t let a wonderful opportunity lay on the table for someone else to come and grab. There are many ways to create opportunities from a free engagement, if you need ideas let Wendi know.
I would like to be represented by Charli Jane Speakers, how can I do this?
When you join the Charli Jane Speaker club we will add you to our speaker directory. Your web presence on Charli Jane can help generate more speaking engagements, a guest on podcasts, TV interviews, and print opportunities. You also receive excellent credibility and exposure in being part of the Charli Jane speaker community, which has been online and in business since 2002. Our Speakers Directory is searched daily by planners, organizers and media professionals looking for an expert. Please visit our kudos page to learn more about what clients and members are saying. We don’t represent speakers like a traditional agency or bureau, what we do offer you is more visibility and credibility by being in the directory and associated with Charli Jane Speakers.
I need a Speaker Onesheet, can you help?
Of course! We have been designing Speaker one sheets since 2005. Most one sheets take 7-10 days and have unlimited revisions. Learn more here.
I’m a newbie and don’t have a website yet, can I still be listed?
Yes of course! We want to get you started and the best way to do that is to get yourself online, get noticed, gain credibility and start building your speaking presence with us. As part of your Charli Jane Speaker Membership you’ll receive your personal profile page in our widely searched Speakers Directory.
What will my Speaker page URL be?
All speakers receive their own customized URL; this makes it easy to direct potential clients to directly to your personal webpage on Charli Jane and to be found easily in the search engines.
How do planners or the media find me?
At Charli Jane, we faithfully and diligently promote both Speakers individually and the Speakers Directory as a whole, on a regular basis, to the long list of contacts with whom we have built solid business relationships since 2002. Because we actively market our Speakers Directory we are highly ranked and visible to online searches and other online outlets. If you wish to research us simply enter “Charli Jane Speakers” in Google. You can also review testimonials here.
Will you do the SEO of our web page for us?
Yes! A perk to adding your speaker information (speaker page) to the Charli Jane Speakers Directory is every speaker gets a page inserted with targeted keywords specific to their niche, topics and knowledge utilizing the popular Yoast SEO tool. We also insert titles and page descriptions that will benefit you in the search engine rankings to make it easier for the hiring party to find you.
Are there any hidden costs?
No hidden fees whatsoever. Charli Jane Speakers never hides anything from you. Our leads are provided to you commission-free always.
Can I make changes to my profile listing?
Yes, you can. Members in good standing may update their profile with major revisions once per year (calculated from join date to anniversary). Minor additions/deletions (such as add/delete contact or social media info, change an image, add a book or new program, etc.) can be submitted as needed. To submit changes email CharliJaneSpeakers@gmail.com
