Do you track any of your speaking metrics? Our guest today, Erick Rheam, says there are 5 key metrics to growing your speaking business.
Erick has been on the show before so you can revisit his story on episode 126 and episode 150. I brought him on to today’s episode of The Speaker Lab to talk about the exponential growth he has had using certain key metrics. Specifically there are 5 key metrics he focuses on, and those metrics have taken his business from $15,000¬† to nearly $200k in under 4 years.
Even if you’re already successful in your speaking career you’ll learn plenty from hearing about Erick’s metrics and how he uses them to gauge the health of his business. Tune in for those insights and more with Erick Rheam on episode 225 of The Speaker Lab!
