Years ago, when I began contemplating heeding God’s nudging to my heart about speaking and writing, I found myself in a dilemma.
I knew I needed a website or a blog, but didn’t really know how to get one started. I needed someone to help me – but who and how would I find them?
I was working on writing my first book and considering taking the self-publishing route, but where could I find a trustworthy company?
I had a manuscript in serious need of the eyes of a professional editor, but how would I find one?
I longed to have an agent to represent my work, but had no idea where to even begin looking.
It took a lot of research, time and effort to seek out the service providers I needed. Although some things turned out fine, there were times when I didn’t do enough research on the service providers I chose and ended up getting burned.
At COMPEL Training, we recognized this need that so many people have because at one time or another, every writer or speaker, regardless of their experience level, comes across a need for support services but often doesn’t know where to find them. Services such as editing, graphic design, website maintenance, marketing, agent representation, social media help, coaching, etc., just to name a few. In fact, we get these types of questions a lot from our COMPEL members, and as a serious writer, maybe you can relate too!
This is exactly why we developed Communicators Marketplace and are so excited to announce that after two years in the making, the Marketplace is making its official debut today! It is the only place of its kind connecting unique service providers online with those who write, speak and lead.
All members of COMPEL Training receive 24/7 access to the Marketplace year-round for free. We pray this will become an invaluable resource for anyone who speaks, writes or leads and that it helps countless women reach their ministry goals. CLICK HERE if you’d like to purchase your annual pass and gain immediate access to the vendor listings.
If you are a COMPEL member and in need of some type of service, CLICK HERE to see a list of our founding vendors. You will need to be logged into your COMPEL account to view the Marketplace. We will continually be adding new vendors to the Marketplace throughout the year so if we don’t have what you are looking for today, be sure to check back!
We are currently accepting applications for preferred vendors for Communicators Marketplace. If you or someone you know provide a service that writers and speakers need, we hope you’ll consider becoming a founding vendor. Every new service provider who signs up prior to April 1, 2019, receives a 50% discount for the life of their listing plus the first month for free!
