  • Will you take my opt-in emails or market to my audience?
    Absolutely not! Your opt-ins are your opt-in emails. We’re here to support speakers, and using your opt-in emails would be among the fastest ways we can think of to erode trust.
  • Why should I use Talkadot, and not something like Google Forms, TypeForm, or SurveyMonkey / Momentive?
    Talkadot has been purpose built for you to get the most out of your speaking engagements. We are constantly optimizing the review process of collecting feedback and booking opt-in emails to make the experience seamless for everyone. As a speaker, get started by simply setting up your free account, claiming your unique feedback link, and sharing this link with your audience. Audience feedback and opt-in emails will start automatically coming in! With other tools, you will need to create and prepare a new feedback flow every single time you want to collect feedback, after which you will still need to format your data each into an easily readable form that is shareable with your event hosts. With Talkadot, your data is ready to share the moment it comes in. You’ll also benefit from our constant efforts to optimize our question flow based on seeing tens of thousands of events and attendee feedback collected. Not convinced? Sign up for a free account and see for yourself :)
  • What is Talkadot?
    Talkadot is an audience feedback tool that lets you generate actionable feedback and collect speaking leads to grow your business. Talkadot collects testimonials, creates real-time reports, and captures people in the audience who want to book you -- so that you can put your attention to shining on stage! ​ Use this data to rebook, or land new speaking engagements! 🙂
  • How will you use my data?
    We will never buy, sell, or use your data without your permission. We may use anonymized data to generate aggregate industry reports, or to improve the quality of our Talkadot questions, but your personal data is not shared.
  • How can I use the Talkadot Reports?
    Every time you share your unique feedback link, you will start generating Talkadot Speaking reports. These reports give you insight around how valuable your talk was, and how many attendees are interested in seeing you speak again. Attendees also have the ability to specify whether they are interested in booking you for a future speaking engagement. Market yourself easily and effectively. We have optimized all the Talkadot reports for social sharing so you can share your glowing feedback anywhere you want. Show your value. Send our detailed event report to your host so they can see objectively how well you’ve done. Because one of the questions asked is how many attendees want to see you speak again, we’ve found this Talkadot report to be a great conversation starter (and proof) for rebooking that next speaking engagement! Land new contacts. Is an event planner in your audience interested in booking you for future events? Our feedback gives your audience the ability to start that conversation so you can start booking more engagements easily. Finally, use Talkadot for personal development. The responses produced in the report are raw, unfiltered responses from the attendee. Use this to identify areas of strengths and points of improvement.
  • How can I download my captured opt-ins after I'm done speaking?
    To download your opt-in list, you'll want to access your My Leads page in the top right-hand corner of your Talkadot dashboard. Your My Leads page will display the interested leads who answered they're interested in booking you, referring you, and who wanted to opt-in to receive newsletters and updates from you. You'll be able to download your opt-ins by clicking the Download Leads button that's located on the right-hand side of your My Leads page. We know speakers use a variety of CRM programs, and by allowing you to download your opt-ins to a CSV file, you can upload them to any CRM software that you're using.
  • What is a Talkadot slide and how do I create one?
    Your Talkadot slide is a ready-made image that is designed to be inserted as the last slide of your presentation. It contains all of your contact information, as well as the feedback url and QR code to request feedback. We wanted to make the process of obtaining feedback as seamless as possible. As part of your sign-up process, we will prompt you for information that will be used to build the slide. After you create your account, you'll want to create your very first Talkadot code and bonus. A bonus is an item such as a PDF, copy of your presentation slides, a video, an MP3, or even a webpage. This bonus item will be given to your attendees at the end of your talk as a thank you for completing your Talkadot feedback tool. Once you’ve got your Talkadot code and slide, simply download the slide and insert that into your presentation. Don’t want to use our Talkadot slide? Simply download your Talkadot QR code or share your customized Talkadot link and collect feedback that way instead. We've even had speakers who have added their QR codes to fliers and poster boards to capture feedback.
  • Can I add my headshot to my Talkadot slide?
    Yes, you'll be able to add your headshot to your slide during the account registration process. When asked to add your profile photo, you'll want to click on the icon that states, "Click to add your photo." Then you'll be able to select the photo or headshot you want to use. If you've already created your account, follow these steps to add your profile photo: Go to the top right-hand corner of your Talkadot dashboard and click on the "Account Settings" button. From the dropdown menu, select "Settings." Within the Account page, select the "Click to add your photo" icon. Choose the desired photo or headshot you want to have displayed on your Talkadot slide, feedback tool, and reports. Once you've selected your preferred photo, click the 'Save' button to update your changes
  • Can I customize my Talkadot Testimonial or Event Report page?
    At this time, Talkadot social reports and event reports are standardized. Event Planners have told us they like knowing they are seeing a Talkadot report, as they see us as a trustworthy source, comprising actual unfiltered feedback collected from the audience, and not simply a curated best-of list.
  • What qualifies or counts towards the 100 opt-ins?
    Any combination of booking, referral , and email opt ins will count towards the 100 limit. Instead of setting a low booking or referral opt-in limit, we wanted to give you the most flexibility in seeing what kind of data you capture with your audience! Any user only counts once toward the opt-in email limit!
  • If someone takes my Talkadot after my session, will I still receive their responses?
    Of course, if someone takes to your Talkadot after your speaking engagement, you'll still capture all of their feedback! We know that some speakers will have their presentation and then their session is recorded. As the recording is displayed, anyone watching the recording can still complete your Talkadot. We want you to capture every opt-in, response, lead, and the most data possible!
  • Understanding Your Booking and Referral Lead Statuses
    When you receive a Booking or Referral lead, it will fall into one of three categories: Hot leads, Warm leads, or Cold leads. Let's break down the status of each lead for better clarity: Booking Leads: 1. Hot Booking Lead (Red Flame): This type of lead answered 'Yes' to the question, 'Do you book paid speakers for events?' They further expressed interest by replying 'Yes, and I have an event in mind!' to the follow-up question, 'Would you like to book (your name) for a future speaking engagement?' Additionally, they provided all the necessary contact information, including their name, phone number, email address, job title, and job organization. 2. Warm Booking Lead (Orange Flame): A warm booking lead answered 'Yes' to the question, 'Do you book paid speakers for events?' They also indicated interest by responding 'Yes, and I have an event in mind!' to the follow-up question about booking you for a future speaking engagement. However, they only provided some of their contact information. For example, they might have skipped adding their phone number or job organization. 3. Cold Booking Lead (Snowflake): A cold booking lead answered 'Yes' to the question, 'Do you book paid speakers for events?' They replied 'possibly' to the follow-up question about booking you for a future speaking engagement. In addition, cold leads may provide extremely limited details, such as only their name. Referrals: 1. Hot Referral Lead (Red Flame): This type of lead responded with 'No, but I know someone who does!' to the question, 'Do you book paid speakers for events?' They became a hot referral lead by providing all the necessary contact information, including their name, email address, phone number, job title, and job organization. 2. Warm Referral Lead (Orange Flame): A warm referral lead also answered 'No, but I know someone who does!' to the question about booking paid speakers for events. However, they only provided some of their contact information. 3. Cold Referral Lead (Snowflake): A cold referral lead also responded with 'No, but I know someone who does!' to the question about booking paid speakers for events. They became a cold referral lead by providing extremely limited contact information, such as only their email address or phone number, without any additional details. By categorizing leads into these clear distinctions, you can better understand the status of each potential booking or referral lead, making it easier to prioritize and follow up accordingly. If you have any questions about this, please email us at [email protected]. We'll be happy to help you! 😄
  • Can I customize my Talkadot slide?
    We do have a way for you to be able to use your own custom slide while using the Talkadot QR code and unique feedback link. If you would like access to the option to use a customized slide, please reach out to [email protected]
  • Do I have to give away a bonus?
    Our research has shown that giving away a bonus can significantly enhance audience response rates, providing you with more valuable insights and improved outcomes. If you prefer not to offer a bonus, you have two options: you can exclude it by leaving field #3 blank in the Setup Talkadot Code pop-up, or you can opt for the default TALK slide.
  • Speaker Attribute Scoring: What's Included in Your Event Report and Social Shareable Reports?
    For your comprehensive event report and social shareable reports, we provide an overview of your top 4 out of the 5 speaker attribute scores. These scores are carefully evaluated and serve as a valuable indicator of the speaker's performance across various attributes. The lowest attribute score will not be included in your event report or the social shareable graphic reports. This approach allows us to highlight the most relevant and impactful aspects of the speaker's presentation while keeping the report concise and focused. We believe that by showcasing the top 4 attributes, you will display valuable insights regarding your strengths and contributions during the event, enabling the client and event planners to make informed decisions in wanting to book or rebook you. If you would like further details on individual attribute scores, please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team at [email protected]. We are here to ensure you have the best experience!
  • How do I add a downloaded file as a bonus?
    If you wish to provide your audience with additional resources like a PDF, a copy of your presentation, an eBook, your slide deck, a video link, or a direct link to your website, you'll want to select the "Add Another Talkadot Code" button on the left-hand side of your Talkadot dashboard. Once you select the "Add Another Talkadot Code" button", the Setup A Talkadot Code pop-up will appear and will help you guide through the process. Field #1 will allow you to turn on or off the option to collect leads or contact information. If you want to capture email opt-ins and have your Talkadot flow capture Booking and Referral leads from your audience, be sure to leave this on. If you're speaking to an audience where capturing leads or emails is not appropriate (ex. speaking to a high school), you can toggle that option off. Field #2 is where you'll create the name of your Talkadot code that will appear on your slide. Your Talkadot code is what our system uses to determine the bonus or item to reward your audience with. For example, if you're speaking to an audience about inspiration, you could use the code INSPIRE. You want to use a code that's related to the bonus you're giving away or related to the audience you'll be speaking to. Field #3 is where you can upload the bonus file or website link you want to give to your audience. This can be a PDF, copy of your slides, a chapter from an eBook, an MP3, a video, or even a link to your website. To upload a file, select the upload arrow icon on the right-hand side of field #3. If you don't want to give something away as a bonus, you can leave this field blank.
  • Can I still share my social media links when using the Talkadot slide?
    Of course, you'll be able to add your Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube channel handles at the end of your Talkadot flow. This will allow your audience to stay connected with you. Plus, you don't have to add a social media handle for each platform. We know some speakers prefer to interact on specific platforms, and that's why we give you the choice of how you want your audience to connect with you.
  • Can I use Talkadot if I have multiple speaking engagements on the same day?
    You can absolutely use Talkadot if you have multiple speaking engagements on the same day. We know that multiple breakout sessions or workshops are common among speakers, and that's why we created a feature that will automatically split those submissions into multiple events. To verify the Auto Split Events feature is enabled, access your Settings menu in the top right-hand corner of your Talkadot dashboard. Then scroll down and toggle on the Auto Split Events feature button so that it turns blue. This will ensure that any response that comes in will be tied to the same event unless there is a 30-minute gap. If over 30 minutes have passed and a new response comes in, the new response for your breakout session or secondary session will generate a new event for you. We have you covered.
  • Can I customize my feedback questions?
    For the most part no, and here’s why. We designed the Talkadot feedback process to be consistent from speaker to speaker so that the results can be interpreted uniformly across all speakers. This makes it easier for event planners to make decisions to book you! We have researched the questions we ask across industries, using the data from thousands of responses to pick the most answered and actionable questions. We put a lot of effort into optimizing the flow to make sure we keep our near 100% completion rate! On the Pro plan, you do have the option to add one customized question at the end of question flow.
  • Does my Talkadot link or QR code ever change?
    Your Talkadot link will always be the same, and the QR code you download from the 'Download My QR Code' button will also stay the same. But if you switch to a different Talkadot code, you'll need to get a new Talkadot slide. This happens because we've embedded your Talkadot code inside your QR code. For example, if you were using the code "INSPIRE," your Talkadot slide with the QR code already has "INSPIRE" in it. So, when someone scans that QR code, "INSPIRE" automatically appears within the Talkadot feedback form. We did this to make it super easy for your audience to access your Talkadot flow, give feedback, and collect their bonus. Just remember, the only time your QR code will change is if you change your username. So if you change your name, get a new QR code!
  • What makes a good bonus?
    A bonus is a symbol of your appreciation that you can offer to your audience as a gesture of thanks for completing the Talkadot feedback form. Think about something valuable you'd like to provide to your attendees to express your gratitude. This might include digital assets such as a PDF document, presentation slides, a video, an MP3 file, an image, or a link to your website. We've noticed that some popular bonuses include speakers sharing their entire slide deck, the first chapter of their eBook, or a useful worksheet or tool from their presentation that their engaged audience would find interesting. Your offer can be anything that can be easily delivered digitally!
  • Optimal File Formats for Mobile Bonuses
    For a smoother experience, we suggest refraining from using .xlsx files as bonuses. While this format allows attendees to download the bonus, viewing it on a mobile device requires a specific app installed, and importing the file directly may lead to an 'Oops' error message. To ensure seamless access to your bonus on mobile devices, we recommend utilizing: PDFs, website links, mp3 files, png files, or jpeg files, all of which are fully supported. To avoid any potential issues with your bonus, we highly recommend steering clear of .xlsx files. If you wish to share an Excel document with attendees, you can instead copy the file's content into programs that support website links. Should you have any questions regarding this matter, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]!
  • I have more questions
    We want to hear them! We rely on feedback to make Talkadot the best it can be! Please reach out to us at [email protected] and we’re happy to answer your questions!

    In order to standardize the feedback that we collect and to ensure the best completion rates, customizations are not supported. That said, nearly 100% of attendees who start the answering the feedback form go on to complete it.
