Speaker Information + Resources

Hey hey! I’m so excited to team up with you to pull of something that’s going to be absolutely incredible.

The Simply Profitable Designer Summit is a 5-day event that will help designers take what they’re already doing in their business and apply your expert strategies in a way that will allow them to simplify, while becoming more efficient, profitable, and stress-free.

On this page, you’ll find all kinds of resources meant to make your life as a breakout speaker as easy as possible and answer any questions you might have. If you run into a question I didn’t answer, email me at hello@simplyprofitabledesigner.com or ask over in the Facebook group.

If you've been a part of events including webinars, summits, or other collaborative offerings and found that they didn't go so smoothly or benefit you as a speaker, I encourage you to check out what past speakers have had to say!

As a breakout speaker, you'll also get free access to the All-Access Pass!

How it'll all work

Let’s do a quick rundown of how the whole thing will work.

The event will run from Monday, April 22 to Friday, April 26. Each day we'll have 4-5 pre-recorded presentations, a live breakout session (that's where you come in), and a co-working session.

Breakout sessions include 15-20 minutes of fun, actionable content in the summit's Facebook group. You're welcome to take 2 minutes at the end to pitch a freebie as well. This is a great way to get people into your product funnel and I'll be there to drop the link for you in the chat.

While the regular summit's presentations are pre-recorded, breakout sessions are live, which adds such a fun, interactive aspect to the summit.

Leading up to the summit, we’ll have two weeks of promotion. You’ll be provided with email swipe copy, social media swipe copy, and social media graphics to make it all easy! I'll even have a suggested posting/sending schedule for you to make promo easy to outsource to a VA.

During the promotion phase, as the summit is running, and for a week after the summit is complete, we’ll also be promoting the Designer Power Pack. This includes an All-Access Pass for the replays and worksheets, access to co-working sessions, as well as additional bonuses we’ll all throw in. This will provide immense value to our attendees, while making the work of promoting and creating a presentation worthwhile by allowing you to bring in affiliate commissions. Woop!

What I'll need from you

So this all sounds great, buuuut what kind of work does it require of you? Let’s chat about it! My goal is to make this all as easy as humanly possible so we can all have a blast while providing great value and growing our businesses.

1. Basic Information

The first thing I’ll need is some very basic information from you so I can finish up our registration page and Speakers page.

This information includes things like your:

  • Name
  • Title
  • Bio
  • Square headshot

Once you give me the thumbs up that you’re in, I’ll send you a link where you can upload all this information super easily.

2. Breakout Slot Scheduled

The next thing I’ll need is for you to schedule your presentation slot! Click here to see the list of times that are available and to schedule yours. (Slots are first-come first-served so if you have a tight schedule be sure to grab your spot right away)

3. Presentation

Next up is your presentation! This is a 15-20 minute presentation that is meant to be more friendly and casual than perfect and structured. We want our attendees to learn something great, while having fun in the process.

Please structure your content in a way that allows attendees to walk away feeling like they've really learned something, rather than a webinar format where they feel like they're missing something that they need to buy from you asap.

With Facebook live, the easiest thing to do is a presentation where you're speaking at the camera, but if you'd rather use slides please let me know and we'll figure it out!

Your presentation should include great, actionable content. Here’s the suggested format:

  • A quick introduction
  • An overview of your topic
  • Where people go wrong with your topic and tend to overcomplicate it
  • Teaching section
  • Specific action steps (with the goal of simplifying their existing process)
  • Freebie pitch for up to 2 minutes
  • Include questions for attendees to answer in the chat box throughout to boost engagement

If you'd like to check out an example of a regular presentation, you can see my presentation from 2018 here.

Find a handy download with all this info here. Note: This download was created for the regular presentations, rather than breakout sessions, but it will still be helpful 🙂

5. Power Pack Contribution

The Designer Power Pack will be a huge addition to the presentations we’re running. To make it even more valuable, I’ll ask each of you to provide one resource to add. This includes things like:

  • eBooks
  • Workbooks
  • Courses (big or small)
  • 1-month memberships
  • Freebies

(Note: Last year we sold over 200 copies of the Power Pack so I do not recommend any type of 1:1 contribution)

It’s totally up to you to decide whether you’d like to create something new or provide something you already have. While this isn’t required, it’s highly encouraged that you participate.

Anyone who does contribute a premium resource (aka not something you're giving away for free somewhere else) will get a 50% affiliate commission on sales, rather than 40%.

Information for these resources is due on Monday, April 1. You'll receive a questionnaire to fill out closer to that time to make passing the information to me nice and simple.

6. Promotion

The power of an online summit comes from a group of experts coming together for a single cause. The joint promotion that happens because of that is a huge benefit to everyone involved.

Because of that, everyone is encouraged to share on social media and to email their lists during the promotion period, starting on April 8.

You’ll want to share using your affiliate link (which you can set up here) so you can get in on the 40% commission that will come from any Power Pack sales (50% if you've contributed a premium bonus).

You’ll find swipe copy and graphics in the Resource Vault below.

Affiliate Details

While summits are great for overall visibility and making new connections, a little extra income never hurts either, right?

That’s exactly why I’ve set up an affiliate program for the Designer Power Pack where you’ll receive a commission from all sales from traffic you refer to the event. Payouts will be made by Friday, May 3.

The commission structure is as follows:

  • 40% for all speakers
  • 50% for all speakers who include a premium bonus to the Power Pack

The pricing structure will be:

  • $77 for 15 minutes after initial opt-in
  • $97 from April 8-21
  • $147 from April 23-May 1

To make it as easy as possible for you to generate extra income, the Resource Vault includes things like email swipe copy, social media copy, and social share graphics. However, you’re more than welcome to write your own copy and even run your own Facebook ads.

Just remember to use your affiliate link, which you can create or look up here.

As with all affiliate promotions, be sure to disclose that you’re an affiliate when sharing with your audience.

Resource Vault

Now for those resources I promised to make your life as easy as possible.

In this folder you’ll find the following resources:

  • Summit branding information (in case it's helpful or you'd like to show off that you've been featured on your website)
  • To do list with due dates so you can keep track of everything nice and easily
  • Email swipe copy and suggested send dates
  • Social media swipe copy and suggestion posting dates
  • Social media graphics
  • Slide templates (you’re free to create your own branded slides)
  • Workbook template (you’re free to create your own branded workbook)

View the resources here.

And in case you don't want to dig through a folder, here are some pretty buttons:

Current Action Steps

Phew, that was a lot to cover! You’re awesome for making it this far 🙂

For the sake of clarity, here are your current action steps:

Remember to grab your to do list and get things added to your calendar. Because if you’re like me, if it’s not in your calendar (Asana for me) it doesn’t exist.
