I met Frank 15 years ago when he was a standup comedian and needed some publicity assistance. Recently I asked him for some surefire ways to kill your chances of landing an invite to deliver a TEDx talk.One. Make It Too Long. "First way to kill your chances, your submission is too long," says King. "Brevity is the soul of wit and the way to get a serious look at your idea worth spreading" Two. An Idea That Won't Fit. "Way number two, your idea doesn't fit the TEDx theme," says King. "If the theme is 'Animal Rights,' and your idea worth spreading is a killer recipe for Spotted Owl, Harp Seal and Black Rhino stew, then it's not going to fly" Three. Right Idea, Wrong Person. "Way number three, your idea fits the theme, but you're not the best person to deliver it," says King. "If you're a Kardashian and your idea worth spreading is an amazing take on how to live the simple life, you're probably not going to get the gig" Four. Too Motivational. "Way number four, your idea fits the theme, you're the person to deliver it, but you frame it as a motivational speech," says King. "TEDx curation teams are looking for innovation, not motivation" Five. Demanding Pay. "Way number five, you won't do it for free, you demand to get paid," says King. "TED rules state that the speakers are not to be paid" Six. Winging The Callback. "Way number six, your idea fits theme, you're the person to give the talk, it's innovation not motivation and you agree to do it for free if you're selected," says King. "You submit your application, you make the callback, but you don't prepare for it" Seven. One And Done. "Way number seven to kill your chances of scoring a talk is you apply to one and only one TEDx, and then quit," says King. King's main message is to try, try, and try again. But do it in a way where you are not killing your own chances.For more ideas on attracting high-paying clients, visit the learning center on my website: www.indiebooksintl.com. - Henry Henry DeVriesCEO and Acquisitions EditorIndie Books Internationalwww.indiebooksintl.com(877) 287-7466 x700
