Keynote Content Development + Research

It's often said that "content is king," which is a sentiment that certainly applies to the world of professional speaking. The most effective (and highest paid) speakers skip the clichés, focusing on surprising, memorable content.

The 3RC team is here to help you craft your message and content in the most compelling manner possible. We'll help you discover unexpected stories from around the world, find key stats to back up your points, and refine your message to perfection. We've helped some of the most successful speakers in the industry shape their message to drive impact and their speaking businesses.

Whether you're building a keynote from scratch or you just need a hand sourcing some fresh content, we've got your back so you can shine on stage.

Storytelling + Performance

Research shows that up to 89% of what audiences remember is not what you say, but how you say it. In the same way Broadway actors work tirelessly on their performance craft, we're here to help you take your game to the next level.

Covering the full spectrum from technical performance skills such as choreography, gesture, and vocal range, to the keys of delivering an emotionally charged story, you'll learn from decades of research and experience. Our team's coaching has led to countless standing ovations and return speaking invitations.

A small improvement in performance can equate to millions of dollars for pro athletes. The same is true for your professional speaking business. Elevate your skills, elevate your stories, and you'll elevate both your impact and your business results.

Brand Strategy, Design and Positioning

It's been said that a professional speaker's primary job isn't giving speeches, but rather selling them. Succeeding in the speaking industry requires a thoughtful approach to branding, positioning, and design. Those who land on the biggest stages are not always the best speakers, but they are for sure the best marketers.

Having helped hundreds of professional speakers craft unique, compelling brands, we're here to help you stand out from the pack. Our team brings decades of marketing experience to help you shape the perfect message. We'll help you discover your unique positioning, which will serve as the foundation of your brand.

From initial strategy and brand creation, to polishing and refinement, we'll make sure you lock in the ideal approach to book more gigs at higher fees.

Speaker Video Development + Production

The most important marketing asset a speaker has is their video reel. Often, speakers are selected solely based on what buyers see in this crucial video. When decisions are made in committee meetings without a speaker physically present to sell themselves to the group, the video has to do the heavy lifting. And in today's competitive environment, a pixelated iPhone video won't cut it.

With the stakes so high, you need an experienced video development team you can trust. From editing and producing existing footage, to filming new performances, we have the depth of skills to bring your best self to life in video form.

Since our video work speaks for itself, here are a few examples of 3 Ring Circus video development:

Speaker Website Development

There are thousands of firms that build websites, but none that match our insider knowledge of the professional speaking industry. We know what buyers want to see, how bureau agents think, and what it takes to transform a standard website into a highly tuned growth engine.

We've helped dozens of speakers build sites engineered to drive their speaking businesses. What should exist on the home page? How does Google rank speaking sites? What is the ideal site architecture for a speaker website? It's critically important to nail these questions (and countless more) if you want to drive your speaking business to the next level.

Social Media Strategy + Management

How did one speaker go from 12,000 social followers to nearly 1,000,000 in less than six months? Our social media team understands the nuances to scaling and activating large, highly engaged communities on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, and TikTok. An increasingly crucial aspect of speaker marketing, today's buying decisions are greatly influenced by social numbers and engagement.

Other firms can help in a generic sense, but our team knows the specifics of the professional speaking arena. From creating and optimizing your social strategy, to having our team oversee your social presence on an ongoing basis, we'll help you look like a rock star on social. Watch out, Kim K!

Marketing Assets: Photography, Video Interviews and Copywriting

The individual components that cascade into an effective marketing strategy can make or break a speaker. Professional photography. Studio-quality video interviews. Elegantly written website copy. Proposal and contract templates. An exceptional element could elevate your brand, whereas a low-quality asset can derail your message.

Let 3 Ring Circus handle all the little stuff so you can focus on the big stuff. From professional photography to writing support, we'll make sure each marketing asset works tirelessly for you.
