The Gift That Keeps On Giving...

2006 has been a great year and I have you to thank
for it. As a token of my appreciation I wanted to
send you a gift for the Holidays.

The gift I have decided on has lots of different
benefits all rolled up into one package.
For example --

==> If you would like to know how to create ebook
.pdf files without spending a mint buying the
Adobe Acrobat product ... then this is a
perfect Christmas gift for you! Remember
eBooks are highly profitable and they can be
used to enhance your credibility for getting
cruise ship speaking gigs. My gift will help
you make them.

Go get it:

==> Whether you are a cruise speaker or
entrepreneur or both if the success or failure
of your online business depends precariously
on the whims of the search engines .... then
you must download my Holiday gift to you and
cut the search engine cord!

Here it is:

==> If you have been searching for a way to get
free, responsive traffic to your site. My
gift has the answer. There are 3 separate ways
to bring traffic to your site using
affiliates, distributing articles and
creating ebooks.

And my Christmas gift to you will show
you a way to link all these together to
produce a rapid multiplying effect which will
increase your traffic by an exponential

Gift pick-up:

==> If you want to see an ingenious use of viral
marketing - one reviewer called it "The
greatest viral marketing idea of all time" -
take a look at my gift to you. Its called -
The Ultimate SuperTip - and I literally
marveled when I saw how easy viral marketing
could be employed in any business.

And last but not least...

==> If you are interested in a simple way of
unleashing a viral wave of sales into your
PayPal account... look no further.

As you can see this truly is a gift that keeps on

Wishing You Blessings For The Season,

s/ Daniel Hall

P.S. If you are seeing this post after Christmas 2006 --
the gift will still be available. Think about it as a "just because" gift.

I Don't Want You To Miss This

This past Thursday night I did an introduction to my new Cruise
Free Advanced System Teleseminar. The phone lines were jam-
packed with people from the U.S., Canada, UK., and Australia.
If you missed this event you can get the recordings (either
listen online or download them).

Here's the link:

This was not a typical sales call teleseminar! For a solid hour
I gave my tips and tricks for how to go about cruising free!
Plus, I provided a follow-along guide to help you keep track of
the ton of information I revealed.

You'll hear what I mean when you listen -- but I can assure you
not a single second of your valuable time will be wasted if you
aspire to cruise free by trading your talents and expertise for
luxury cruises.

Word to the wise: Be glad you're on my mailing list because near
the end of the call I introduce a special time-limited offer for
folks on the call to my Cruise Free Advanced System Teleseminar
event scheduled for August 30, 31.

A bunch of people took advantage but I discovered my boo-boo...

Early yesterday evening, I realized I did not tell you about the
offer or the availability of the recordings.
Go listen --

Since its a Summer weekend (and it was my mistake), I'll keep
the offer open only for members of my list until Monday morning.

God bless and happy cruising,


P. S. Don't forget to download a copy of the follow-along guide
(cheat sheet) to help you keep track of all the valuable
information I relay during the call --

UT Honor and Class

I wanted to post about several things. First, if you will be anywhere near Austin, Texas on July 22, 2006, I will be teaching my “Speakers Cruise Free” class at the University of Texas at Austin (Home of the National Champion Texas Longhorns). You can sign up at the UT website

Also, I was very honored to learn that my class was featured on the UT Informal Class Catalog cover. See below:

Speakers Cruise Free University of Texas at Austin Informal Class Catalog Cover

Or you can see the cover by clicking here.

Also, stay tuned I’ve got big news on an update to my top-selling e-book – “Speak on Cruise Ships.” But here is some inside news: The new e-book will have 3 hours audio interviews with owners of the world’s leading cruise speaker agencies who tell you additional ways to cruise cheap and in some cases free by using cruise speaker agencies. (Hint: This is advantageous because these agencies do a lot of the groundwork for you). More to come….

Cruise Speaker Resources


Sorry its been so long in between posts but I have been working on a number of other projects. I would like to tell you about a couple.

First, check out my Internet radio show the Secret Information Revealed Show at You can listen to many shows related to public speaking, communication techniques and even producing your own online video. The shows are free to listen once you opt-in.

Then check out my information site related to tips and resources for developing passive and residual income. See Although not related to cruise speaking, I'll bet you're interested in this topic. (You should be.)

New Article -- Your Talents For A Free Cruise

Thought I would share a new article that you'll likely see accross the details talents (including but not limited to public speaking) that you can trade for free (or substantially discounted) luxury cruises; some things you may not have thought of before, enjoy, God bless and happy cruising....

Your Talents For A Free Cruise

by Daniel Hall
Copyright 2006

It’s true! You can trade your talents for free (or substantially discounted) luxury cruises. Cruise line management is very interested in keeping their passengers happy at all times. This goal is a bit more challenging on days when the ship’s at sea. To address this issue the cruise lines offer all manner of onboard activity. Many of these activities are staffed by outside people who typically cruise free or at discounted fees paid to booking agencies. One key advantage is the time commitment, which is generally minimal for those who are contracted (usually an hour per day on days when the ship’s at sea). Also, most outside contractors get to bring along a traveling companion who also cruises free.

You may consider whether you could trade your talents for free cruises. To assist in your self-assessment here is a list of positions typically staffed by outside people:

Enrichment Lecturer: Many cruise lines have formal enrichment programs that offer edutainment type programs in a variety of topics. A majority of these programs use destination-driven lectures although many lines will also consider general interest topics.

Art and Crafts Instructors: Craft classes are an onboard staple at sea. Projects range from so called “high art” like watercolor classes to simple macramé projects. Typically, the more popular classes are those that are also destination related, i.e. handicraft or folk art of one of the countries on the itinerary.

Dance Instructors: These classes too are often related to the destinations being visited, i.e., Line dances (Texas); Meringue (Dominican Republic); Salsa (Puerto Rico), Samba (Brazil), Tarantella (Italy) etc.. Obviously you must have happy feet and know your business, but there is much fun to be had.

Bridge Players: If you enjoy playing bridge and have a “knack” for it, you can spend a couple hours a day in the game room playing in exchange for your cruise. Many times a requirement here is that your traveling companion must be ready, willing and able to sit in on a game should a pair need to be completed in order to play.

Gentleman Host: Single? Chatty? Happy feet? Impeccable manners? Gentleman will be expected to appropriately entertain unescorted ladies on the cruise. Dancing and polite company are the stock in trade for this onboard position.

Computer Instructors: Many cruise lines are very interested in contracting with folks who can deliver a series of onboard computer classes.

The list does not end here. Many cruise lines will consider any kind of tasteful and interesting activity. In any event, trading your talents for free cruises is worth investigating further. You may wish to check out for a free 6-part online video course entitled “Introduction to Cruise Ship Speaking” for more information on the opportunity.

Dottie Walters, Rita Emmett & Claude Diamond Chime In On "Speak on Cruise Ships"

I have been blessed with a recent trio of endorsements for my book from paragons in their respective fields: Dottie Walters, Rita Emmett and Claude Diamond. I'm almost speechless (I said "almost") but am truly humbled by it all. Here's what they had to say...

Dottie Walters --

Dottie Walters has been a hero of mine for many, many years -- long before I began speaking. For over 25 years she has been a world-renown motivational speaker, author of "Speak and Grow Rich" and is considered the grand-dame of the speaking business. After I completed my e-book "Speak on Cruise Ships" I wrote Dottie on the outside chance that she would review my book and honor me with an endorsement. Below please find the relevant portions of an e-mail reply I received from Dottie:

Hello Daniel,

Here is the endorsement [set out below] for your new book that you asked me to do. It is a pleasure because this is the finest book I have ever read on this topic. In fact, I believe it is the first one ever written on the topic. When you think of all the beautiful pleasure ships that sail the "7-Seas," I wonder why someone has not written this important book before! Here it is at last!


Great job, Daniel!

Dottie Walters

"Speak on Cruise Ships: Eight Easy Steps to a Lifetime of Free Cruises" by Daniel Hall is a magical book. My thought was, "Why hasn't someone written this before?" It is clearly presented and covers any problems that might come up.

This book outlines every detail necessary for you to treat your family to a cruise, while you instruct and teach your subject in a magical environment.

Dottie Walters, President. CEO
Walters International Speakers Bureau

By the way, as I've said at other times on this blog, any of Dottie's products or services are treasures especially if you're in the speaking business. Check them out at:

Rita Emmett --

And if that were not enough, I am honored to have received this review from best-selling author and all around great person, Rita Emmett who is herself a frequent cruise ship speaker (so she really sees the value of the book for would-be cruise speakers and arts and crafts leaders). Thanks so much, Rita.

"If you've always wanted to cruise all over the world and you think that doing it for free sounds impossible, you've got to read this book.

People who would never guess that they had something to speak about will be astounded with what you'll read. Daniel teaches you step-by-step how to turn your hobby or special interest into a talk, shows you how to format the talk, and even guides you to making an easy to follow lesson plan and handout. Don't put off reading this - it can make your dreams come true."

--- Rita Emmett, author of The Procrastinator's Handbook

And if procrastination is a problem in your life, YOU NEED Rita. No, not a Margarita! Listen. Do yourself a favor and check out Rita's website at she has the tools to transform you into a super-productive yet balanced and contented "mover-and-shaker."

Claude Diamond

I've known Claude for a number of years. He is an expert and author in real estate and sales and I have personally used his materials to make thousands of dollars in my own real estate investing. Claude is also a highly sought after platform speaker appearing nationally. Here's what Claude had to say about "Speak on Cruise Ships"

I love this book! This is the way all how-to books should be written. Daniel Hall has truly captured a unique way for anyone with the inclination to cruise free by giving interesting talks or conducting simple arts and crafts classes! And he lays it all out as easy as A-B-C.

Claude Diamond, The Mentor

Claude's stuff is great too and I commend it to you. Check him out at

There you have it. If you were on the fence thinking whether or not to buy this book, I hope these comments help you in your decision-making. You can get the book at or if you haven't already signed up for my FREE 6-Part video course "Introduction to Cruise Ship Speaking" at that would be a good first step.

You Know Cruising is Hip When...

Hello, everyone. I'm back from a week of skiing in Ruidoso, New Mexico. It was very warm and the only snow was man-made. The good part: we had the town practically to ourselves. When I was gone, I received an e-mail ad promoting a music cruise. These are not too unusual. This ad got my attention because of who was promoting it: Dave Matthews.


Dave is a major figure in the pop-rock world and has a huge following (this accounts for the two large ships they're using). What piqued my interest is I've never seen a cruise being promoted by such a major celebrity. Cruising truly has become hip among thirty-somethings and younger. This is proof. All the better for cruise-ship speakers or those aspiring to be because the industry will continue to grow leaving even more opportunities for free cruising.

Also, don't forget you can sign up for my "Cruise for Free" workshop sponsored by the University of Texas at Austin on January 28. Register here:

Go to "View Courses" and then I am the first class listed under the "travel & culture" category.

A New Year Call Into The Future

Happy New Year! ... and what a great one 2006 will be!!

I've got to tell you what happened to me on New Year's Eve.

At 5:28 p.m. I received an e-mail from a customer who was having problems ordering my book. She then ended her message with what I recogized as a non-US/Canada or European telephone number. (At the time this was happening I did not know where the order was coming from.)

So in an effort to provide the best customer service I can, I decided to call the number using a new IP telephone service that we have been using to record my new internet radio show "Secret Information Revealed." (I'll keep you posted when this goes live). With the service you can call any other computer (who signed up for a free account) for FREE!!!! And you can call any other landline in the world for very low cost (2 cents a minute to most places).

So I rang up my customer. She was a little surprised. I asked where I was calling and she said South Africa, Happy New Year!!

That's right...I was calling 8 hours into the future, into the new year! How wild is that? I felt like I was in the movie "Back to the Future"

Anyway, we got her problem solved. And I got my very first order from South Africa. By the way, the techniques in the book will work for anyone, anywhere in the world.

In case your wondering how to sign up for this service so you can call around the world free, its called Skype and you can sign up through the banner below.
