Best Website Contest is Back!!

Wow, it was 2009 when we ran our last “Best Speaking Expert Website Contest”.

Times have changed, websites have changed, so it’s time to run it again!

Simply comment below if you’d like to nominate a website.

So what are we looking for?

1. A unique, fresh and original site. One that looks interesting and would pull in a decision maker.

2. Website is outcome oriented. This means that the website is about your clients rather than all about you.* If I visit your website and it says “hire me, I’m a speaker” then you may not be a contender.

* some exception apply i.e.: an entertainer

3. Clear Brand and/or Promise. When visitors view your website, do they understand the outcome(s) of your work very quickly?

Note: Although we’re not making video a criteria, a strong video clip, or demo may give you the competitive edge.

That’s our contest for this year. If you think you qualify, or someone that you know qualifies, place your comment below to nominate a website by adding the link.

See you soon Wealthy Speakers!

  • Two sites because of the drastically different audiences they target:

    http://www.markblack.ca and youthspeakermark.com

    Critiques welcomed.

  • I would like to nominate my newly designed web site, http://theresarose.com/. Feedback welcomed! Thank you, Jane, for all of the amazing advice you provide through The Wealthy Speaker. It is my speaking Bible!

  • Pick me! Pick me! Just redesigned the ENTIRE website: http://www.ExtraordinaryTeam.com.

  • As the ‘no excuses lady’ I help clients to overcome their excuses. This really works in Europe and I’d like to try and see if my no nonsense approach is also attractive in the US. So I’d like to enter my website. Thanks for your feedback!

  • Oops, my website is http://www.estherjacobs.us ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Always fun to participate and hear your thoughts on our work Jane

  • What an absolutely wonderful idea, Jane~! I missed the first one, so grateful to enter. We missed you here in the “burgh. Hope all is well.

  • I was fortunate to have done a consult with Jane back in October 2009. I know it’s been over 1. 5 years this that coaching call, yet most of what Jane recommended, I put into place. I wanted to wait until I had a product to promote to tie it all together. Ta Da. Here it is. Thanks Jane.

    Here’s to ready, fire and aim.

  • Given your years of expertise with speakers of all kinds, I can’t think of a more qualified person than you, Jane. I look forward to hearing your insights on all the finalists. You do an amazing job of helping improve us all in so many ways. Thank you!

  • Gulp… putting it out there….

    http://speakingpractically.com

    Feedback welcomed.

  • Two sites

    http://www.getconnectedmakewealthhappen.com

    and marctv.net

    thanks

  • I will be changing up my official website in about a month but I figured why not just put this out there and see what happens. I’ve got everything to gain. Critique me like crazy!!!!

    Official Website: http://www.YahyaBakkar.com
    Speaking Website: http://www.NationalYouthSpeaker.com

  • I’ve been blogging for a while and now am focusing on my speaking, (although the website is also geared toward coaching).

  • I’ve found that the shorter and more direct our sites become, the better the response. Another example is my wife’s new site to promote her book: http://www.EverythingIDoPositionsMe.com. Constructive comments are welcomed!

  • My web site is out of this world! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • This site is all about moms who have started thier own businesses. http://www.venturemom.com
    Very little about Holly, the site even post updates and events of Featured Venture Moms for free.

    Holly does speak at various venues and hopes to do more speaking but when she does speak it’s about the moms she covers adding to their press.

  • Well this contest couldn’t have come at a better time. Just launched mine and still doing a few tweeks here and there. My site is about women entrepreneurs who want to become money magnets so they can work less, earn more and make a bigger impact in the world.

  • I’d like to nominate my new brand The Dating Confidence Coach and my site: http://www.AdamLoDolce.com

    Thanks!

  • We architected this site for SEO, convertion ie yellow conversion box, integrated social media (like button etc), integrated video on top banner and more.
    We are very proud.

  • How does one nominate a website so flash-dependant that no extant browser can reveal even his contact information? Answer: when the website promotes an individual sufficiently eccentric that he only refers to himself in the third person, who cares? Easy to navigate, pleasantly designed and featuring the internet’s first scratch-and-sniff technology, http://www.daviddeeble.com is the internet home of David Deeble, a comedian, speaker and creator of “An Unnatural Act” – a whirlwind display of exotic skills.

    Sincerely,

    David Deeble

  • Ever-evolving, just like the business is – this is what my ‘storefront’ looks like today! Have fun looking at all the awesome sites that have been recommended!

    • Stephanie, trying to connect with you! I’m ready to revert to smoke signals!! Are you on Skype later?

  • Two sites – http://www.tonilamotta.com and http://www.midlifemessages.com
    I speak about the lessons learned through the process of aging – helping midlifers
    face the aging process with joy rather than dread.

  • Our new website is up and running! We worked hard to provide alot of great content both on Steve and on the purpose of the website. http://www.SteveBaines.biz is geared towards business owners, managers and entrepreneurs as Steve is a Business Advisor, Professional Speaker and Video Blogger. I think it has a fresh, clean and insightful vibe. We have tried to make it user friendly and NOT gimmicky. Steve is committed to providing solid business content and truly loves interacting with his subscribers and social media followers. We think the website showcases his passion for what he does. We hope you get the same feeling from it, Jane. Thanks for opportunity to showcase the sight. We have learned alot from yours and appreciate all your awesome advice.

  • HI Jane, awesome contest. (Love the Book it has helped me and my team out tremendously!!) I would like to nominate the newly designed http://www.jonathanedison.com that was launched today 4-7-2012. Were looking forward to your comments and your feedback.

  • Hi Jane. We’d like to offer up our website. Our goal has always been to focus on our clients’ needs. Thus, we provide extensive overviews of our Keynote Topics, Training Categories and Consulting Services. To provide an opportunity to really get to know Ryan Estis we’ve utilized video in most cases for several reasons 1) so they can hear him speak and 2) to provide them with solid, strategic insight in order to position him as an expert. The content is also a great take-a-way for our visitors!

    Love to hear what you think!
