I've discovered that I'm an excellent public speaker. How does one capitalize on that?

I gave a presentation recently at an industry conference. The attendees loved it so much they not only asked me to repeat it, they also awarded it the best presentation at the conference. I had people telling me it was "life changing" and "You should do this more often."
I had a similar event at another conference in the past (in collaboration with a couple other speakers) -- we were asked to repeat it at the conference and make it a webinar.
Apparently I'm good in front of groups. So what do I do with that? I wouldn't mind getting part of my income from public speaking. It's certainly more fun and rewarding than my day job.
Where do I start? Do I just keep submitting proposals and hope I get noticed? Or are there other ways I can self-promote without seeming like a conference whore?
