Question for Jim Kukral:
Looking forward to this teleseminar. One of my goals for my book and subject is to become known as an expert in my field. I would love to have select people in Speakers Bureau’s read my book and someone to give me a review. This would help me to get speakers events, where I could also sell my book. Does Mr. Kukral have suggestions on how we can all gain entrance into this arena?
My expertise is in a rebranded ancient knowledge, now called Sacred Science, a hybrid of consciousness studies, metaphysics, and quantum physics. I would do well at university conferences, at metaphysical conferences, at magazine events like ION, and Scientific American, etc. Even at Medical conferences for alternative energy healing. Sacred Science is much broader a subject matter than one might think at first.
I can’t help but think that other “niche” authors might also benefit by hearing his answer on this question. Hope he can give us some direction during the teleseminar. Thanks, Cassandra Martin
Thanks for your question. The best advice I have for you is to send printed copies of your book to event planners. Include a personal note and/or cover letter with a link to your website speaking page where they can see examples of you speaking. I know this works as I have done it. 🙂
