Welcome to GreatGardenSpeakers.com

We are the only online speaker directory that lists speakers in all areas of gardening, horticulture, garden design, floral design, ecology, garden history and garden travel. The directory is a free resource for program chairs looking for garden speakers. Speakers can be listed for a small monthly fee ($5/month).

 


Why Join Great Garden Speakers?

Great Garden Speakers is a collective marketing speaker directory. For a small monthly fee ($5/month), you receive the benefits of a much larger marketing budget than any one individual generally has the funds for.


Benefits for members of GreatGardenSpeakers.com:


  • Promotion via monthly email newsletter to venues and program committees that book speakers.
  • Advertisement in print publications mailed to independent garden centers, garden clubs, master garden groups, botanical gardens, universities and more.
  • Mailings to industry and garden club mailing lists (with options for individual spotlights for an additional fee to cover costs).
  • Facebook advertising and promotion on the GreatGardenSpeakers.com facebook page.
  • Collective marketing via other Great Garden Speakers members. (Speakers are encouraged to mention Great Garden Speakers at the end of their presentations. This has resulted in members helping other members get bookings.)
  • Press releases mailed and emailed to national publications and other directories.
  • Outreach during garden club and master gardener conferences and industry trade shows.
  • Professionally designed marketing materials (either hard copies for handing out or print-ready files to print on your own).
  • High Google search rainkings for key search terms.
  • Association with nationally an internationally ranked speakers, and search traffic to GreatGardenSpeakers.com when a fellow member has a large marketing campaign going.
  • Special pricing on individual help for publicity via the GreatGardenSpeakers.com managing company, The Garden of Words, LLC.

 

Can you really get all of this for just $5/month?

Yes! When speakers pool their resources, there are more people to spread the word, there is more money for marketing outreach initiatives, and there are more benefits to everyone involved.
