Though creating a WeSpeak profile will not guarantee that you will instantaneously receive speaking opportunities, the platform is a tool for you to use to showcase your speaker persona and speaking experience. 
 
By featuring your WeSpeak profile link in your email signature and on your social media profiles, you can promote your speaking expertise and build your network. 
 
We also work on attracting more event planners to WeSpeak so they can find your profile and get in touch with you if your topics and expertise match what they are looking for.

Our prices are in USD, but given PayPal online payment processing system, you can use any international credit card to make payments.

When a client/booker adds a testimonial about you, we do a basic check if it meets our Terms of use and publish it on your profile.

To get a ‘verified’ badge next to the testimonial, the client/booker must provide the reviewer’s business email (cannot be Gmail, Hotmail or similar) and they must confirm that they in fact endorsed the speaker in question.

Clients can upload a logo or image related to review on submission.

Cancelling the subscription/upgrade/payment means the account remains intact but you lose access to certain features (such as the display of video/location/PDF downloads, social links etc on the speaker profile, but even these media contents remain in the account, they just don’t show up on the public profile page without being upgraded).

Organizers can be companies looking for speakers or workshop trainers for their corporate events, conference organizers seeking your expertise, global events lining up presenters on business, medical, IT or any other topic, schools and universities looking for volunteer speakers for their students, or any other event manager who wants to have someone with expertise and great speaking skills.

Affiliate section on WeSpeak is available to anyone and once registration approved you will have access to your own Affiliate Area on WeSpeak.

Why register as an affiliate?

  1. Earn 35% back from all verified and confirmed referral product purchases. These include DinKEYnotes and Subscriptions.
  2. View full statistics on visits and referrals from Affiliate dashboard.
  3. Creatives – here we have created already populated HTML codes for you to use for your articles and blogs (from banners to word inserts).
  4. Create your own URL link to any page on WeSpeak and use code to create referrals through mailers, articles or website banners. 
  5. All your own links will be directly recorded to you on any purchases and payouts through Affiliate section.

The Dashboard is an entirely new page for affiliates. Once logged in, you are shown key performance metrics and can quickly access other pages of the portal to see the bigger picture.

Generating and previewing referral links is also more intuitive. Changing any input field updates the Generated referral URL automatically. In other words, no more clicking a clunky button for every new preview!

And finally, the sharing options are always visible, allowing for quicker sharing.

Absolutely! We welcome agencies to list their speakers, the only difference being that the contact email will be that of the agency, not the speaker.
 
As we have no intention to cut agencies out of any transaction and since WeSpeak is a one-stop-shop speaker resource, agencies would get extra visibility for their speakers, trainers or moderators without any risk to their core business. If you’d like to discuss special arrangements or have specific feature requests, just contact us and we’re happy to discuss.
The stat​istics track individual IP​ addresses only, and there is a limitation of the session to time to 12 hours. This means in practice that if you look at a speaker’s profile multiple times in a 12-hour period, it will only count as one view.
 
If you check it again beyond this time frame, it will be counted as a new view.
Yes, this is easy to do. When you are on the speaker’s profile, you will see a “heart” button in the head bar, in their profile. If you select this button, the speaker will get added to your “Bookmarks” list.

To see all the speakers who you’ve selected and added to your “Bookmarks” list, just go to the main Dashboard and click “Bookmarks” 

No longer want a speaker to be a favorite? Unselect the “heart” button and the speaker will be removed from your list.
