Why You'll love being a speaker
Build Brand Awareness
One of the main benefits of speaking at the event is building brand awareness. By sharing your expertise to the audience, you are positioning yourself as an expert. You are building brand awareness and recognition to a primarily new audience, that is what is so great about all of us coming together in a single event!
Grow Your Email List
While you won’t receive the list of attendees, there is still an opportunity to grow your email list. Your freebie will be mentioned several times and in several places – next to the video, under your bio, and more! This is your chance to blow the audience away with your brilliance and grow your audience. We'll also be creating worksheets for each presentation. You'll receive the email addresses of each person that downloads your worksheet.
As a speaker, you have the opportunity to sign up to be an affiliate. That means that for every sale you make through your affiliate link you will make some moolah! Speakers receive 40% from all purchases BUT if you provided a digital product for the VIP option, then as a thank you, you will earn 50% from all purchases from your link.
Network with Speakers
My favorite part of hosting summits is the connections I make. I get the opportunity to meet and talk with each of you and I want you to have that opportunity as well! Most of our speakers engage in our Facebook group and we have enjoyed making new friends with each summit we've held.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
About Your Presentation
- Your Presentation Should Be Value Focused
The purpose of this event is to provide as much value as possible to the attendees. Please avoid webinar-style presentations. These types of presentations tend to be all FLUFF with no real substance. Think of these more like workshops. The attendees should come out with VALUABLE and ACTIONABLE takeaways. This is your chance to really blow the attendee away and make a memorable impression.
- You May Share A Free Offer At The End of Your Presentation
While the presentation should be primarily value, that doesn’t mean you can’t pitch something. At the end of the presentation, you can take a minute or two to share a relevant free offer that you believe would be useful to the audience. We want to avoid the event becoming one big pitch fest, that is why only free offers are allowed to be pitched at the end. I highly recommend you push the freebie you provide during the event and set up a tripwire on the end of it!
- Your Presentation Is Pre-Recorded
While the event is live, your presentation will not be. Instead, you will record it ahead of time. This gives you time to prepare and record on your schedule, so you can be fully present during the event. Once we have your presentation, we will edit it so that your intro interview is before the material.
- Your Presentation Should Be 15-20 Minutes Long
Please plan to deliver 15-20 minutes of content. If a presentation is too short, or too long, we might ask you to redo it. So please keep that in mind 🙂
- Your Presentation Must Be A MP4 File
There are so many programs and several different ways to record your presentation. But before you submit your presentation, please make sure it is an MP4 file format. This is to ensure I have no issues when it comes to editing. If your presentation is in another format, you can convert it here.

Will I receive the emails of everyone who signs up for the summit?
No, just because someone signs up for the summit doesn’t mean they have consented to be emailed by all the speakers. However, you do have an opportunity to grow your list. This is where your freebie comes in. The link to opt-in to your freebie will be listed in several places from the website, to your speaker page, to the workbook, to the Facebook group and more. You'll also receive a list of emails from those that download your worksheet from the presentation.
When is my presentation due?
You must submit your presentation to me by Monday, October 18th. This is SUPER important because I need time to watch, create your presentation notes and edit your presentation. If by some chance you need a little extra time, please let me know as soon as you know there is an issue.
How long should my presentation be?
Your presentation should be between 15-20 minutes. However, make sure it is no less than 15 minutes and no more than 30 minutes. We would much rather have a presentation on the shorter, than have fluff. Attendees will appreciate it as well.
Do I need to be live during my presentation?
Yes please! Each day during the summit, presentations will go live every hour. Please be in the chat box during your presentation. Following the first 30 min of your presentation we recommend joining us in the FB group to engage or go live with some of the commonly asked questions.
How much do I need to promote?
The recommended minimum promotion efforts are sending out 2 emails and posting 3 times on social media. But ideally you’ll promote as much as possible! The success of the event is a collective effort. We are going to do all we can to personally promote on our own channels as well as run Facebook ads, but each speaker needs to do their part as well!
Think about it this way. If only some speakers promote and others don’t, it really isn’t fair for the group. But if everyone promotes then our reach expands exponentially. Remember this is a group effort and when you promote the summit, you are supporting every speaker in the summit. #communityovercompetition
This event is an affiliate promotion, so while your efforts bring traffic to the entire group, they can also make a big difference in your affiliate earnings!
When is the promo period for the summit?
Promotion for the event is Monday, October 25th through Friday, November 19th.
Promotional materials will be available by October 11th so you will have plenty of time to work ahead and get things scheduled if you would like.
Will I earn money from being a speaker?
As a speaker, you have the opportunity to sign up to be an affiliate. That means that for every sale you make through your affiliate link you will make some moolah! Speakers receive 40% from all purchases made through their link. BUT if you provided a digital product for the VIP option, then as a thank you, you will earn 50% from all purchases.
Since you are promoting the event anyways, might as well use your affiliate link and have the potential to earn extra income!
