Whether you realize it or not, your main purpose for speaking is not to get on stage. It's to transform lives by using God's Word (along with your story). Unfortunately, this either means you're going to only impact those in your area or you're going to be travelling a lot. A good way to reach those you wouldn't normally come into contact with is by duplicating yourself and sending yourself on a mission to 100 cities in one night, right? Wrong. That's not going to happen - except when it does happen.
Webinars allow you to reach 100 cities in one night. Huh? How's that? Don't worry, you won't have to duplicate yourself for this to work. You create your presentation (which you probably already have anyways), create a PowerPoint presentation (or other slideshow creator), which you may already have ready, and then send out invites to many people to join your webinar (you probably already have a newsletter list, right?). Make sure that your presentation title resonates with your target audience.
Once it's time for the webinar to start, you can start the webinar software half and hour or more before and prepare for it beforehand. Then, you can start your webinar and possibly reach 100 (or more) cities in one night! You can have your webinar software run replays afterwards, if you record the webinar while it's going on (usually that can happen in your software). Also, you can create evergreen webinars that run anytime someone registers for them (our webinar on this website is evergreen).
This is also a good way for you to build your platform. For instance, you can use advertising methods to get people on your webinar and then get new newsletter subscribers this way, or Facebook fans or Instagram followers. Then you're able to impact them for the long term. You're able to let them know about your membership community (or something else that you offer) this way, as well. If you end up taking your speaking career on the road, you can have contacts in many different cities and make a nationwide tour of it.
Our Christian speaker packages (Pro, Expert, and VIP) all come with webinar software that you can use to build your platform. If you're not already a client of ours, why not give us a chance to build your platform. We don't teach you how to build your platform - we build it WITH you so that, at the highest package, you should be able to double your platform in 180 or less!
