As a speaker, your website is a crucial part of your marketing efforts. Often, it is the first impression that someone looking to hire a speaker will have to see who you are and what you have to offer. Give a bad first impression and they will simply keep searching until they find someone who impresses them.
There are so many working parts to a website and essential items a speaker MUST have that it is hard to get it all just right. What exactly are decision makers looking for? How can you pull people into your fan base and engage them? What elements must you have and how do you arrange them, so they have the greatest impact?
