My guest for Episode 206 is Melanie Deziel, making a repeat visit to The Audience to drop all kinds of advice and tips about getting paid to speak

Melanie is the founder of StoryFuel, which teaches marketers, publishers, creators and companies of all sizes how to tell better brand stories. She is also the author of The Content Fuel Framework: How to Generate Unlimited Story Ideas — which released February 24, 2020.

She is a keynote speaker, award-winning branded content creator, and lifelong storyteller, on a mission to share the power of compelling and credible content with others. 

In the episode, we talked about the most common questions that I get from so many speakers when it comes to getting paid to speak, including: 

  • How to know when you’re ready to ask for a speaking fee
  • Strategies for sleuthing whether an event is paying speakers
  • Tips for setting your speaking fee and how to know when your fee is priced “just right”
  • Valuable types of non-monetary “payments” when you’re just starting out
  • Tons of discussion about Melanie’s new book and how authors can leverage their book(s) when negotiating speaking fees
