GENERAL FAQ:

Do You Represent Speakers and/or Take a Booking Fee?

We are NOT a speakers bureau nor do we represent speakers. We are an online database and resource for churches, ministries and event organizers to find Christian speakers easily on the web.

Therefore, we do not take or ask for any additional fees. You will receive booking requests directly from event organizers. We do not get involved in your dealings at all. The only fee you pay to us is your annual fee to be listed on the website.

How Do I Get Bookings Through Your Website?

You will be contacted directly by people interested in booking you. They simply click the CONTACT THIS SPEAKER button on your page and fill out a simply form. Once submitted, the form results get emailed directly to you. You then respond directly back to them regarding their request. We are not involved at all in your communications, bookings or contracts.

Are There Any Additional Fees?

Nope! We want this site and our services to be as simple as possible. So, the only fee you’ll ever pay is your annual membership fee. When you get booking requests, they will be sent to you directly.

Do I Need to Have All of My Photos and Info Before Joining?

No. You can start with the basics and add additional information, photos, links, media, etc. at any time. You will always have full access to your account to make updates and additions. And if you need any help, let us know.

How Do I Crop and Compress Photos?

Before uploading any photos, we HIGHLY recommend that you crop and compress your files. This helps your page load faster and helps our servers to not get bogged down.

There’s no need for any image on our site to be over 600 pixels wide. We recommend all image be squares, no larger than 600×600 pixels.

If you don’t know someone with Photoshop who can crop, resize and compress your images, then we recommend the following FREE online service.

www.iloveimg.com/crop-image

This site will allow you to safely upload your image, resize it, crop to 600×600 (or 300×300), and download it to your computer.

Once you’ve done this, simply upload your updated images to your page via the Listing Editor.

How Do I Become a Featured Speaker?

Becoming a featured speaker is brand new. A website that contains engaging and relevant content is extremely important. So, knowing that many speakers are also good writers, we wanted to give our members the opportunity to write blog posts, relevant articles, or tips & tricks that are helpful to other members. These posts will help enrich our members and make the overall website more relevant and more discoverable in internet searches.

Of course, these posts will need to be reviewed and approved by our staff for quality, uniqueness, clarity, grammar, and relevance. Once your blog post is approved, you will receive up to 6 months of Featured status, as long as your membership does not expire.

To submit a post or article, please email it to us as a Word Doc or Google Doc. We recommend they be between 400 to 600 words in length, but this is more of a guideline and not a rule. Basically, we don’t want them to be too short or too long.

I Created My Account, But The Payment Did Not Work? How Do I Pay?

If you created your membership listing, but for some reason, the payment did not go through, or it did not process correctly, you can make a payment and connect it with your existing listing by following these steps:

  1. Log into your account if you haven’t already. This can be done by clicking Member Login at the top-right of the site.
  2. Click this link: https://www.christianspeaker.net/product/full-annual-membership/
  3. Once on that page, click the ADD TO CART button, then click the VIEW CART button.
  4. Then, click PROCEED TO CHECKOUT and complete the contact and payment information.
  5. If you are logged in, it will automatically connect your payment with your membership listing. If you are not logged in, please do so on the CHECKOUT page. If you do not remember your login information, that is fine. Just proceed with processing your payment and then we will manually connect the payment with your membership listing.

Why is the Site Asking Me to Pay Again?

If you’ve already paid for your membership and then, while trying to edit your page, you’re being asked to pay again, this is due to you trying to add a new listing instead of editing your existing listing.

While logged in, click YOUR LISTINGS at the top-right of the website underneath your Name.

On the proceeding page, you should see your listing (usually shown as your full name). Click EDIT underneath your listing name to edit your page.

If it shows multiple listings, then please delete the one that you accidentally created and make edits to the original listing.

Is the Contact Form Functioning Properly?

Once you setup your account, please test your page’s contact form by submitting a test. Do this by clicking CONTACT THIS SPEAKER on your page, entering the information and clicking SUBMIT.

After a few minutes, your contact email account should receive an email from the Christian Speaker Network. If it does not arrive with 10 minutes, you should check your email Spam folder.

If it does not arrive in your Inbox or Spam folder, you should check with your email provider to see if they can whitelist this email address: info@christianspeaker.net

It’s very important that this functions properly as this will be the main way people will contact you for booking requests.
