Do I need a video to get started?

Getting Started on SpeakerMatch: No Video? No Problem!

SpeakerMatch caters to speakers at all stages of their careers, including those just starting out. We understand that as an emerging speaker, you might not have a video or demo reel ready yet. But don’t let that stop you from signing up and promoting yourself on our platform!

The Role of Video in Your Profile

While having a speaker video or demo reel can be beneficial for promoting yourself, it’s important to note that it’s not a strict requirement for using SpeakerMatch. Our platform is designed to highlight your unique offerings, be it your programs, audios, or even text descriptions of your speaking style and content. Yes, a video can enhance your profile and make you more appealing to meeting planners, but it’s certainly not the only way to showcase your talent.

Building Your Profile Over Time

As you gain experience and exposure through SpeakerMatch, you’ll have opportunities to build a robust and compelling profile. Some event organizers may even offer HD professionally recorded video with professionally mic’d sound from your speaking engagements. This can be an invaluable addition to your profile and in many cases, can be better than cash compensation!

Don’t let the absence of a video deter you from signing up on SpeakerMatch. We’re here to support emerging speakers like you. Start where you are, use what you have, and remember—every expert was once a beginner.
