Linda Hollander helps teach speakers and authors how to get corporate sponsorships. She thinks that companies are fed up with risky celebrities and will be looking to find “real people.”

Here’s an excerpt from her ezine:

With the recent implosion of the Tiger Woods brand, corporate sponsors will be thinking differently about where they put their sponsor dollars. Instead of mega-celebrities, sponsors will be giving more money to real people like you with strong core values.

Make no mistake about it. We are entering the age of over-deliver. Your sponsorship proposal needs to be a Win-Win-Win for everyone. Companies need to do marketing and sponsorship represents great opportunity for you.

Back to me.

I think this means that now is the time to really promote yourself so these corporations can find you. The best way is to get publicity in major newspapers and magazines so when sponsors search the Internet for someone just like you, they find you.

I can accept a handful of clients into my 1-on-1 coaching program to help you get publicity in the mainstream press and on the Internet. If you are an advanced speaker or author, email me at dan at and we’ll see if there’s a good fit.

Remember, if companies don’t know you are alive, they can’t hire you. And if a competitor has a l9t of publicity, you won’t get the job. The sponsorship will go to someone who can produce the best results for the company
