Take Your Message from Pages to Stages

Out of all of the ways you could share a message, you chose to write a book.

And, whether you know it or not, you did it for a reason. 

Your story matters. Your book matters, too. And it’s time to give your book a new stage to speak from … a literal one!

Many authors plan to write a marketable book to build or grow a business. Is this you? (Or do you want it to be?)

To make this happen, you need the marketing assets to support your business goals, and the emPower PR Group is ready to help. 

The moment you launch a book you are actually building a business, and for many authors, that business is a speaking business. From perfecting your messaging to developing your marketing assets — including your video and photo speaking assets — we’ve got you covered.

Sound like something you’d like to be a part of but have some questions?

We’d love to connect and answer your questions. The link below will direct you to a form to share some information prior to a call and allow you to get on our calendar accordingly. Pull together your list of questions and let’s connect.

The stage is ready for you, but you may not be ready for it. Let's change that!

There is a difference between just any speaker and a professional one (and definitely a difference between an unpaid speaker and a paid one)! Our goal during the Author emPact Summit is to ensure that you have the marketing guidance, insights and resources to up-level you as a paid professional speaker … one who is lifting your message from your book’s pages and spreading it to many on various stages.

Show them you mean business … speaking business that is.

It’s one thing to write your message; it’s another thing to speak it. When companies invest in bringing your message to their team, they want to see you in action. That’s where a speaker reel comes in! 

During the Author emPact Summit, the team will be capturing the footage needed to create your speaker reel which includes an author interview, testimonials and footage of you sharing your core message on two speaking platforms. A 2-3 minute speaker reel is a meaningful outcome of this event and will position you to build or grow your speaking business. 

Here’s what you can expect during the event: 

  • You will have a 30-minute video interview to help package your message and share your story.
  • Two speaking opportunities where you will have 5 minutes to present your core message for footage and photo capture. (No keynote required!)
  • All authors in attendance will provide brief but meaningful testimonials to incorporate into one another’s videos.

If you want to build or grow a speaking business, meeting planners will need (and want) to see you in action on stage!

Your visual story should complement your written and spoken ones.

Every author is navigating several stories! The written one (obviously) is shared through books. The spoken one (of course) is gifted from stages. The visual one, however, is a story that some authors overlook. 

A single photo can be game-changing for an author; imagine what multiple branded photos can do for you!

Photos will be taken during the event, and you can expect to receive:

  • 2 digital author headshots
  • A 30-minute mini brand photo session which includes 5 digital brand photos 
  • 4 digital photos of you speaking on stage 

These photos are incorporated in your speaker-one sheet and make great assets to utilize in building your author platform, specifically when it comes to websites, social media and marketing materials to support your authorpreneur efforts.
