Here is a quick update on the latest improvements and new features on SpeakerHub.
We have added many new online-only events to the marketplace, made finding content on our SkillCamp easier and clearer, and have been creating coronavirus-specific content for speakers.
1. SkillCamp gets a new layout
Each week we post new articles to help you grow your speaking business. From in-depth guides to new marketing techniques, to guest posts from experts around the world, SkillCamp has been created to help speakers with the issues they care about most.
Recently we’ve changed the layout to help make accessing the content you need more straightforward.
Finding helpful content just got easier
We’ve posted 365 original articles in the past 4 years. The articles, podcasts, infographics and videos on SpeakerHub's SkillCamp provide professional speakers with new ideas, expert insights, practical how-to's, and inspiration.
We want to ensure that finding the articles that are most helpful to you is as easy and straightforward as possible, which is why we have created new ways to search and navigate the content.
Search function improvements
Have a specific topic you need help with? Simply use the search option in the top right corner.
You can select from the most-searched-for topics, or use keywords to search for something more specific. You can also filter the content based on whether you are a speaker or organizer.
Article tags to connect you to similar content
Focusing on one particular topic, such as how to network online?
We have improved our tag functionality to help you find similar content more easily.
By clicking on the tags:
A. At the bottom of the article,
B. In the side panel under “popular topics”
C. In the new search function
You will be taken to all the articles on that topic.

2. New online-only events
Over the past few weeks, we have been getting feedback that many of you are searching for online-only events that are looking for speakers.
The Marketplace is at the heart of what we are creating at SpeakerHub, being the one-stop-shop for creating connections between speakers and event organizers—even in these trying times.
We now have a dedicated team whose sole goal is to find online-only events. They have added 45 paid and free events in the past week alone.
