How to have Tim Ferriss speak at your event for free.

Despite the fact that I can beat him in a handstand competition, people still worship Tim Ferriss.

And since he’s pimping his new book right now, I found a way to do all of the following for “Free” (notice the quotes):

  • Meet Tim Ferriss up close and personal.
  • Be memorable to him.
  • Have him speak for you…TWICE….for FREE.  Potentially making you a lot of money.
  • …or have him speak (twice) at your events for promoting whatever you’re selling.
Sound too good to be true….it’s not (if you can get over the $84,000 price tag).
Here’s how:
STEP 1.) Checkout the way he is getting people to order his book on launch day (Nov. 20th):

 

STEP 2.) Notice the last option to buy 4,000 books for $21 a piece.  This costs $84,000 ….but a smart person would understand you actually get everything for “Free”.

 

See, you’re buying 4,000 copies of his book to distribute.  You can give these away, sell them…whatever….and almost re-coup your investment of $84,000.

BUT THE BIG THING is the perk Tim will personally give you for buying 4,000 copies:  He will personally speak as the keynote speaker at two events.  

Now in the startup world it ain’t hard to pack a room for a Tim Ferriss speech.

He usually commands $75,000 to $100,000 per speech….and can easily pack a paying room.

So you get to have him speak TWICE, for only $84,000….plus you can sell all the books!  Essentially you’re getting Tim to speak for you for FREE.

 

 

I’ve gotta get going to an art show now …..so if anyone’s interested, checkout his post about it.

      Nice example of thinking in terms of value instead of cost.

      When I first saw $84,000 – I simply thought “wow, that’s a ton of money” – I didn’t carry it out as to what that figure meant in terms of value. Thanks for the cool perspective Neville.

      When I saw that, I immediately got all these crazy ideas of holding a big event in Toronto and having Tim be the keynote speaker.

      I briefly considered getting a loan to pay the 84 grand, but then I realized I don’t know anything about hosting a huge event, and I was thinking too big without validating my idea first…
