Hey hey! I’m so excited to team up with you to pull of something that’s going to be absolutely incredible.
This Implementation Week, based around what we're calling Your Simply Profitable Design Services, is a 5-day event that will give designers guided action and implementation time to improve their services including everything from what they're offering to the marketing to back it up.
On this page, you’ll find all kinds of resources meant to make your life as a speaker as easy as possible and answer any questions you might have. If you run into a question I didn’t answer, don't hesitate to let me know.
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 speaker, you'll also get free access to the All-Access Pass!
Let’s do a quick rundown of how the whole thing will work.
The event will run from Monday, October 22 to Friday, October 26 with one pre-recorded presentation running each day (at 11am Central). These presentations will include 30-45 minutes of content (with up to a 3-minute pitch), a worksheet that follows along with or complements the presentation, and a live chat.
After the daily presentation, there will be a 2-hour Implementation Party (from 1pm-3pm Central) where the attendees will come together and put what they've learned into action. As a speaker, your attendance at the Implementation Party is totally optional.
There will also be a Facebook group for attendees to hang out in, hold each other accountable, and ask us additional questions. If attendees have good questions while your presentation is going on, you’ll be able to go live in the Facebook group for a bit of an encore to answer those questions, connect with the attendees, and provide even more value.
Leading up to the event, 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!
Implementation Week includes two options for attendees. They can have access to the worksheets and presentations only for no cost or they can purchase the All-Access option which includes lifetime access to materials, an action step guide, the daily implementation parties, a co-working day, and any bonuses we all decide to throw in.
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 own businesses.
This information includes:
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.
Next up is your presentation! This is a 30-45 minute pre-recorded 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.
With that being said, you have your choice of the following presentation formats:
If you’d like to go with the interview style presentation, schedule a time with me to do that here. You’ll still be responsible for editing if any is needed, but we’ll work together to come up with questions.
No matter what format you choose, you are free to use your presentation however you’d like in the future.
Your presentation should include great, actionable content. Here’s the suggested format:
If you'd like to check out an example, you can see my presentation here. (Note: this was for the Summit, so I didn't give a challenge)
Presentations are due by Monday, October 8.
Find a handy download with all this info here.
Along with each presentation will be a worksheet. There are a few reasons behind this:
The content of the worksheet should follow along with your presentation and encourage attendees to take action. You are more than welcome to include links and a call-to-action at the end.
Please include more than a blank page for notes. If you don't have time to come up with a semi-detailed worksheet, let me know and we'll figure it out!
If you'd like an example, you can see the contents of one of my past worksheets here.
Like I said, this process is meant to be as easy as possible so you have a couple options. You can either:
If you choose to go with option 1, your worksheet will be due along with your presentation on Monday, October 8. If you choose option 2, it will be due on Monday, October 1 to give my designer time to finish it up.
If your presentation includes slides, I'll have you export them as a PDF to provide attendees for easy note-taking.
As a part of the All-Access Pass, I'd love to provide attendees with a few fun bonuses including things like:
It's totally up to you to decide whether or not you'll participate in this part. If you do participate, you're free to create something new or provide something you already have. (Note: If you participated in April's summit, you're welcome to include the same resource again)
Information for these resources is due on Monday, September 17 so I can get them added to the sales page. You'll receive a questionnaire to fill out closer to that time to make passing the information to me nice and simple.
The power of an event like this 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 October 8.
You’ll want to share using your affiliate link (which you can set up here) so you can get in on the 60% commission that will come from any sales.
You’ll find swipe copy and graphics in the Resource Vault below.
And last comes participation during the week of the event. Since we’ll already have done the work of creating the presentations and extra resources, we’ll be able to sit back and relax for the most part!
All I ask is that you participate in the chat during your presentation slot and interact in the Facebook group throughout the week to help attendees stay excited and engaged.
While you are not required to attend your topic's Implementation Party or the events of other speakers, it’s highly encouraged! We’ll be able to get some great discussions going about the topics being presented.
While events like this are great for overall visibility and making new connections, a little extra income never hurts, right?
That’s exactly why I’ve set up an affiliate program where you’ll receive 60% of all sales from traffic you refer to the event.
The summit I hosted in April had a 12% conversion rate for affiliates, with the highest earning affiliate receiving a payout of $3098.50.
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.
Now for those resources I promised to make your life as easy as possible.
In this folder you’ll find the following resources:
And in case you don't want to dig through a folder, here are some pretty buttons:
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 (Trello for me) it doesn’t exist.
