In its latest guide, Primeau Productions recommends aspiring professional speakers first research their competition. This could include doing a Google search for other highly rated professional speakers in their area of expertise and sifting through their reviews to determine what makes them desirable. By doing so, speakers can also figure out what qualities they need to have to set themselves apart.
Next, the guide suggests that speakers plan their demo reel out. In most cases, this will involve writing a script that is concise yet compelling. The visual and audio elements of the film will also need to be decided on, from the set to the lighting and sound. All of these elements need to be engaging, memorable, and cohesive.
To further enhance a demo reel, the guide encourages speakers to include additional high-quality B-roll footage that showcases their expertise and personality. Examples of this are videos from previous speaking engagements, testimonials, interviews with thought leaders, and glimpses into the creative process.
Lastly, Primeau Productions highlights that all effective demo reels should end with a clear call to action, encouraging the viewer to pursue hiring the speaker. The call to action is the speaker’s last chance to leave an impression, so they have to make sure that it makes a lasting impact on the viewer.
“As a professional speaker, success is mainly dependent on your ability to captivate your audience and make a lasting impression,” said a spokesperson for the company. “If you want businesses to hire you to speak at events or in videos, you need to create a demo reel that makes you stand out and increases your chances of selection. By following the recommendations in our guide you improve your odds significantly.”
