Speakers: FINALLY! Simple, Quick, Easily Customizable Speaker One-Sheet Templates So You Can Market Your Speaking Business Like a Pro
Tuesday, April 07, 2015 Dear Speaker Friend,
You get it.
As you’re building your speaking business you know you’ve got to have certain marketing tools in place.
Things like videos, testimonials, photos of you speaking, a website, and a speaker one-sheet. Or maybe you call it a speaker sheet. Or a one-pager.
Whatever you call it, you know having an attractively-designed document that lays out your program and your personal info is a must to make you look like a pro.
Because you’re smart you’ve probably had creating a one-sheet on your to-do list for quite some time but maybe hit a snag like:
You can’t find a decent designer in your price range.
The designers you have hired in the past “flaked out” on you before your project was done.
You don’t have a clue about where to find someone to help you get your ideas out of your head and onto paper.
Other parts of your business are busy enough that you haven’t had much time to build out your speaker marketing tools yet.
You’re not even sure what you should include on your one-sheet.
Well your wait is finally over!
You can be like these folks who created their one-sheets and were SO excited they posted them on Facebook within MINUTES of ordering!!
Today Is The Day You Get Your Speaker One-Sheet Off Your To-Do List and Get It Done - Because It's Just About Done For You Right Now!
How do I know this is what you need?
My name is Felicia Slattery and that’s me on stage speaking. I also wrote a little book called 21 Ways to Make Money Speaking, which hit #1 on Amazon in five categories before Noon on launch day. I’ve been speaking and teaching people what to do to make money speaking for years. I know this stuff because I’m still in the trenches of professional speaking myself. Right now. Every day.
Meeting planners ask for certain things over and over again. Your one-sheet is at the top of that list. And you better have one ready to send when they ask. Or they’ll be moving on to the next speaker on their list who does have one.
Even though my clients and readers know they need a speaker one-sheet, they have long-struggled with some of the problems listed above. It pains me to see my clients feeling stuck. And the more I hang around with speakers – especially those who say they want to start doing more speaking – and start getting paid well for it – the more they tell me they need something like this.
Here's the Secret about Meeting Planners and Getting Hired to Speak (And Get Paid!)
Usually to get paid to speak, you're not hired by one person with one phone call, like you might be with coaching or consulting. The way the meeting planning business works is the meeting planner spends a lot of time going through speaker materials. Then they get on the phone with a few speakers to see whose personality they like and feel like they click with. After that, they take your materials to a meeting with a committee or another decision-maker, who you almost NEVER have access to. That means your marketing materials HAVE to tell your story. Speak volumes. And, make you look like a pro.
Introducing: Speaker One-Sheet Templates That Make You Look Like a Pro in Almost No Time At All
Instead of using up a lot of words to describe these, I'll just show you what you're getting and how easy they are to customize.
"I've Already Booked a Keynote!"
"I've already booked a keynote with my self-designed one-sheet.
As someone with more than a few presentations under her belt, I already knew the importance of speaker one-sheets. The problem was I like to customize them for each event planner, so I can show I can create the perfect speech for their audience.
Even with a designer on call, that can become costly. So I decided to try Felicia's templates.
Within 15 minutes, I had created a personalized one-sheet. And within minutes of sharing it with the event planner I was hired to keynote at a 500+ room event. What an ROI!"
Q: Really? All I need is PowerPoint to use these templates?
A:. YES! PowerPoint is all you need. These were designed on PowerPoint 2010, so you will need access to that version or newer to make these templates work for you. If you don't have PowerPoint 2010 on your system yet, you can get a free 30-day trial version from Microsoft. So get the free trial. Open up your template. Make your changes and you're good to go.
Q: I have a Mac and use Keynote Software. Will these templates work for me?
A: YES!The Keynote software on Mac is PowerPoint compatible.
Q: How do I choose which template to get?
A: First, refer to the chart to determine which elements suit your speaking business best.
If you’re just getting started and don’t have media exposure or logos of past big-name clients yet. You can either delete those elements from your template or choose a template that doesn’t have those.
If you haven’t written a book yet; simply add a photo of you in-action on stage in that spot or choose a template without a section for your book.
If you don’t consider social media important for what you do, find a template without those icons.
If you’re a member of NSA, Toastmasters, or another organization in your niche that would communicate value to a meeting planner, choose a template that has those as an option.
Choose which options and elements are important to you to decide on your completed design. All of the templates can be easily customized to remove or add any elements.
Q: Can I really just type in my name, my program details, and add a few photos? Is that ALL there is to it?
A: YES! The hard work is DONE FOR YOU! All you have to do is plug-and-play.
With the design and elements already in place, you can quickly and easily add your information and images. Or take a few more minutes to play with your template and customize it even further by changing the colors, background look, fonts, and more – with a couple clicks of your mouse! Boom. Done and done.
Q: How long will it take me to customize my final design?
A: Easily less than an hour.If you know which photo image you want to use (your headshot or speaking in-action image), have your short bio written, and have a description of your talk already done, you can finish in 15-30 minutes. If you have to write your bio and program description first, it'll take a little longer. Caution: you might be tempted to play with all the fun features and ways to make changes. If you're in a hurry, just follow the provided checklist and you'll be good to go, fast.
Q: Will my new template match my logo/website/branding colors?
A: YES! You’ll find a color palette for all businesses and speech themes in each template option.
Whether you’re uber-masculine or girly-girl, button down corporate or green and granola-y, or anything in between, you’ll find anywhere from 8-10 color palettes to choose from within each design template. You get ALL of the 8-10 color options when you choose your template. You choose the right look and feel you want to communicate. Take a look:
Design Set 1 - Top Tab
Design Set 2 - Bold & Powerful
Design Set 3 – Diamonds and Dots
Design Set 4 - Faces of You
Design Set 5 – Unique Angle
Q: How much of the templates can be customized?
A: Every single element. Every color. Every font. Every background. Every image. Every line. Every text box. Every EVERYthing!
Q: Do I have to be a techie to make these things work?
A: Not at all! Even if you are the biggest technophobe around, if you know how to use Microsoft Word and make basic changes to PowerPoint, like typing text, adding photos, and hitting "Enter," you can use these.
Q: What If I didn’t need one of the elements in my favorite template?
A: Delete it! Simple as that. Depending on the template and the element, you can replace it with something else, or leave it completely off without altering the look of the template. You'll see there are a few changes already made in each design so you can get a sense of what your final design will look like based on the elements you want to add to customize your template.
Q: What if I can’t decide?
A: Choose them all!In the checkout area, you have the option of getting ALL of them for one low price. You can also choose two or three templates, if that's all you want.
Q: I’m a Virtual Assistant and ALL my clients will want me to do one of these for them. Can I serve my clients without having to make them each get their own templates?
A: YES! There is a developer’s license available in the check-out area so your clients don’t have to know your little secret. With the developer’s license, you get ALL 5 designs and ALL the color combos from each design with the licensed approval to use these as much as you like, for as many clients as you like.
"These one sheet templates came at the right time for me! Before, I've spent hours before working with a graphic designer to create one sheets. These templates were a huge time saver! I love how simple, easy to read and attractive they are.
The templates have everything you need to establish credibility yet to keep it simple.
Felicia even created easy to follow step-by-step videos. This is a big plus!
I love the flexibility of the templates, how you can change colors and take out sections you don't want. You can also customize the templates for each speech or audience. I'm so proud to be able to hand this to someone. Thanks so much!!"
~Sharon Rose Gibson, Author of "From Stuck to Success: Conquer Your Fears and Achieve Your Writing Dreams" 15minutewriter.com
"It took me less than 20 minutes to create this!"
"These templates are absolutely amazing. I love the way that even within each option there are a variety of options to choose from. After I gathered all of my information, it took me less than 20 minutes to create this one sheet and most of that time was spent with me trying to decide which design to use. It was very easy to edit the content areas, change the size of the font, and even add new images. I am in no way technologically savvy, but using this template made me feel like a pro.
~Benecia Ponder, Breakthrough Coach, Speaker, and Author of Prepare to Receive MORE!, BeneciaPonder.com
"I Didn't Need Any Special Technical Skills!"
"I'm one of those speakers and coaches who actually gets technology because I spent a lot of my corporate career in IT. But my business is busy and I don't always have time to do everything I need to do. I was pleasantly surprised at how I didn't need any special technical skills to get my one-sheet done.
Finally! Another thing crossed off my to-do list to help me get more speaking gigs. The hardest part about completing this template was remembering where I had stored the picture of my book cover! It was *that* easy."
~Shayla Logan, America's Professional Fear Buster, ShaylaLogan.com
Here's what one private client has to say:
"So many opportunities, I can hardly keep up with them all!"
"Felicia has helped me completely transform my business and my future. I hired her to coach me with building my speaking career and to create an online information products business. She has knowledge and experience that teaches you how to maximize your business in a minimal amount of time. If you are not motivated and excited by her energy and enthusiasm, you need to see your doctor. She is a connector, teacher, motivator and just a fabulous resource that delivers over and above customer service! I can't recommend her highly enough - only 4 months later I have two new online products and so many opportunities, I can hardly keep up with them all."

Use the JPEG version as the header on your Twitter account.

Email all your personal and professional contacts with a copy or linking to your website telling them how excited you are to have your own professionally-designed speaker one-sheet and ask for contacts of meeting planners.
Write a blog post about your speech topic and feature your one-sheet as the featured image.
Announce on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn that you now have a one-sheet and created a speech around your topic of expertise. Give your talk a compelling title and share some info about it.
Work with a coach (like yours truly!) to help you build an entire speaking marketing plan that incorporates the use of your one-sheet as one of the printed materials.
Let's Talk (Tiny) Investment:
How long has creating your one-sheet flyer been on your mind and your to-do list? How much time and money have you spent trying to find a designer? Or playing around with design software you don't really know how to use, trying to design your own one-sheet? Or going to a cut-rate site and being terribly disappointed at what you got? You could easily spend hundreds of dollars and countless hours on a 100% custom design.
These speaker one-sheet templates save you time and money. How much is your time worth?
When you get paid to speak, you can easily be generating thousands of dollars per speaking engagement. If you're just starting out, you should know that $2,500 is at the lower end of many meeting planners' budgets. But what if you've never been paid to speak and suddenly someone wanted to pay you $1,000 to show up and speak for an hour on the topic you're passionate about? How cool would that be??!!
This is a tiny investment in a professional marketing tool you can use again and again. Month after month. For years to come. If I charged you $100 per template, that would be a good deal. But I want to make this totally fair and completely accessible to you. That's why for a very limited time, I'm offering these templates at just $37 each. Or you can get all 5 for a steal at just $97.
The Weirdest Guarantee Ever
Who tells you what they can't guarantee? I do. Because I'm not full of fluff and malarkey.
I can't guarantee this is going to work on your system, but if you have PowerPoint 2010 or higher it should. If it doesn't I'll refund your money.
I can't guarantee how long or how little time adjusting these templates will take you, but I can guarantee I'll show you via video how to make all the changes with very little effort and virtually no frustration. If you really don't get it and can't make them work, I'll refund your money.
I can't guarantee these will be the snazziest, prettiest, most awesome designs ever. That would be impossible because it's subjective. (I love them and am proud of them!) But I can guarantee the files are clean, crisp, and have been designed by a professional designer. If they look fuzzy, distorted, or pixilated to you, send me screenshots, if we can't fix it, I'll refund your money.
I'm NOT going to refund your money if you buy only to look and then change your mind. You can see the basic designs and colors in the thumbnail galleries above, as well as in the video which shows two color selections of all five of the templates, and even a finished sample in the testimonials. Finally you get to see one of the templates up close and personal in the demo video above. Not to mention you can customize just about everything to match your branding, image, logo, colors, etc. If you're a tire kicker, move along.
This means if you ask for a refund 5 minutes after you purchase, the answer is no.
