I know it's not always worth your time to be part of an online event. Hosts are unorganized and pushy on top of not really caring whether you get any benefit at all from your efforts. I've been a part of events like that and I know how disappointing it is, so it is always my goal to make events pay off for the speakers.
To show you that I'm committed to you seeing a return from your efforts, here are some samples of what past speakers have said:
I loved how easy and organized you made everything for me, getting to be featured along side other amazing speakers, and getting to share a topic I'm passionate about with a group of people who it can really help. If you created a system for summits by doing this one, you should seriously sell it. I would buy it from you, that's how good it was!
What I loved most about being a speaker for this summit was how incredibly organized and simple you made it for us AND how engaged the audience was. I had everything I needed, all of my questions answered, and felt so prepared to present and share than I ever have before. Also, this was the MOST engaged audience I've ever had for an online summit. I think it was because you really narrowed down and defined the niche and the people showing up knew they were getting information tailored specifically for them!
I seriously LOVED being a speaker in your summit! Seeing people implement what they learned from my presentation right away was such a powerful experience all around. I even made 2 sales after my presentation.
I love that this event got me in front of new designers who I hadn't yet connected with. You made it so easy! I sold 4 evergreen courses and signed 2 new ongoing coaching clients through my presentation.
I loved how SIMPLE you made it to participate from just preparing for the summit in general to creating affiliate info and what was expected when, being a speaker in this summit was truly a dream. I've already had 40+ people grab my free training since my presentation!
I loved sharing what I know and seeing how much it helped clarify (and simplify) the social media process for the students who attended. Honestly, everything was perfect. You want above and beyond! I've had two strategy sessions booked from students so far and more who expressed interest.
I enjoyed the chance to share something helpful with your community, and that it was such a niched community that I knew what was going to be valuable to them, and what wouldn't be. I also loved how easy you made it to present and interact with the group! This was seamless! Plus your community was so engaged. They asked questions, reached out afterward and engaged so much more than typical summits. I've already seen a few signups for my workshop and before the summit even started, I was seeing new faces in my Facebook group who came directly from the summit group.
I enjoyed that the presentations were pre-recorded so I could fit it in my schedule when it was convenient. I had some attendees join the challenge I hosted this week and have a call about my VA services for one of them!
I loved that we got to pre-record the presentations. It made it super easy to participate and I've made 3 sales so far!
I loved the ability to engage with everyone in the Facebook group! Some of your prompts helped spark conversation and led to more engagement than I've seen in other summits. This summit really feels like one where people are actually learning and applying, so I felt like I wasn't talking into a void.
I loved getting to be a part of such an impressive lineup, and you made it so easy! It was awesome being able to pre-record our presentations and then focus on answering questions in the chat during our slots!
I've never known "what my thing" is as far as messaging, but hearing and seeing people's response to what I feel so passionate about (creating a signature service) is #mindblowing. I feel so excited that people feel excited about this message and it makes me want to share it more. Through asking me to speak (and giving me some direction to what to talk about) you've given me maaaaajor clarity!!
I loved connecting with a new audience and being able to record my presentation ahead of time. Honestly, the whole thing was impeccably organized and so clear!
You made it so freakin' easy.
