Frequently Asked Questions

eSpeakers offers two types of accounts for Maxwell Leadership members:

  • BASIC: great for speakers getting started with directory marketing
  • PRO: includes all of the promotion opportunities we offer, and fully unlocks our EventCX event lifecycle management system, which we recommend for speakers doing 25 engagements per year or more.

This chart gives more detail of the difference between the packages.

eSpeakers provides tools that help professional speakers organize, promote, and grow.

Our specialized event lifecycle management system (EventCX) removes the busy-work of your office and lets you focus on what you do best: your next book, new content for the platform, etc.

Our directory marketing tools give new buyers exposure to you when they see your profile and learn about your experience, topics, location, languages you speak, availability, and fees.

Other eSpeakers tools that help you grow your business include SimpleSite, LiveSchedule, Book-Me-Now, SpeakerTRACK, Local Lead Pool, and more.

Directory marketing is the third way that buyers find and hire speakers, joining “direct” (where the buyer already knows of the speaker and contacts them directly) and “bureau” (the buyer brokers a deal with a speakers bureau who acts as middleman).

Buyers — who are used to booking airline tickets online and shopping for clothes online — are turning online to research and hire speakers. And increasingly that online search takes them to a directory of speakers, which gives buyers access to speakers in a much more convenient format than simply using search engines to check one speaker’s site at a time.

eSpeakers is the leader in directory marketing for speakers. With a single eSpeakers profile, you may be published in many directories. Many of our speaker customers are getting exposure in more than 50+ of the directories we publish.

eSpeakers publishes our own eSpeakers Marketplace and also powers the directories of many national speakers associations, speakers bureaus, and other directories where event organizers gather (MPI, Smart Meetings, etc).

Use the eSpeakers SEO chart (eSEO) to see what meeting planners find valuable and to max your score.

Like generic search engines, speaker directories need a way to decide who is listed first when a buyer does a search.

eSpeakers uses a point system to rank speakers in the search results of our directories. The points mimic the habits of buyers by rewarding the quality of the content speakers have on their profiles. The more robust your profile is, the more points your profile scores, and the higher you rank in the search results.

Use the eSpeakers SEO chart (eSEO) to see what meeting planners find valuable and to max your score.

Some of the sites where your eSpeakers profile is published allow event organizers to post their need for a presenter as a public job. It is a call for speakers for a specific event.

eSpeakers members at the PRO level can see a list of the posted jobs and apply to them. Learn more about how the lead board works.

The job board is not the main value of your eSpeakers account. Successful speakers value the exposure (measured in views) that their profile gives them, and use eSpeakers tools like SpeakerTRACK and the Local Lead Pool to promote and grow.
