It all starts with brand positioning. From there when you attract the right attention you will be the clear-cut obvious choice as the speaker for their event. Conference organizers are looking to book experts. They will want to go through your website and social media platforms to get a sense of your skill and knowledge around your keynote topic. Social proof has led to many bookings!
This can be a Youtube series, motivational speech album, solid webpage, etc. Your social media presence may factor in but it is not always the deciding factor. Conference organizers need to know that you can offer a solution for their audience.
Making full use of the Internet and sites like Eventbrite can make the world of difference when sourcing for speaking engagements. On eventbrite you can find speaking opportunities with a decent amount of keyword research. From there you can link to their site and make the connection.
Be sure to frequent conference directory websites as well. The executives book speakers on a wide variety of topics. Allconferences.com and Gigmasters.com are two really solid sites to keep in mind.
Joining a speaking bureau does not mean that you are guaranteed anything. You will still have to do much of your own legwork. A speaking bureau is kind of like a speaker directory. The success of your speaking career is solely in your hands.
My suggestion would be to stay active online with relevant content. In doing so you will establish yourself as an authority and attract the right attention to your brand. Ideally you want organizations to reach out to you requesting your speaker demo, but most times it comes down to doing the legwork!
