You need a good website to send prospects to in order for them to check out your capabilities. A website does not need to be designed by a pro for $1500. Today there are a gamut of tools that an individual can use to create one…. and for free. WordPress is becoming the industry standard.
I use BlueHost as my hosting company for my 3 websites. Once you have one URL with them, you can create multiple websites. They even provide tutorials for you. They give you access to WordPress and you can download the WordPress code to your system through the BlueHost site. Again all this is included.
I am working on a RickDeutsch.com site. I want it to be static landing page. Then when people come to it, they can click on any one of four images and be linked to my other sites. I am using a BlueHost sitebuilder tool. Also free.

As a professional speaker, you need to have a web presence. If you really want to attract prospects – you need to direct them to your site. Just Google speaking on cruises or any permutation…this site, SpeakOnCruises, comes up #2 behind Cruise critic – which is a huge enterprise.
Think about working on your website.
