Events, where you can learn from experts and network with peers, will always be an important part of your personal or professional development.

However, people don’t necessarily want to travel or spend the time and money to attend an event in person.

And being there face-to-face isn’t always an option.

Luckily, with all the technology we have available today, you can both attend AND run virtual, digital events – without ever leaving the comfort of your home.

You can even host a “virtual summit”, where you have multiple speakers sharing their expertise (without leaving the comfort of their homes either!)


Why would you want to run a virtual summit?

Because it can accelerate your business growth at a speed you never imagined.


Hosting a virtual summit will:

  • Grow your email list exponentially
  • Increase your visibility in your market by leaps and bounds
  • Position yourself as a go-to resource in your field
  • Form lasting relationships with other industry experts
  • Generate more income (especially if you add paid options to your summit)


I’ll bet at least one of those benefits is something you or your audience would like to achieve!


But running an online event with multiple speakers can be daunting.

There are so many moving parts – deciding on themes and topics, finding and securing speakers, running and recording interviews, setting up a sales funnel, sending email campaigns, and more. The logistics are overwhelming!


It doesn’t have to be that way… if you follow a carefully laid out process.

…and that’s exactly what you’ll be able to learn and implement after you complete our course.

Completing this course will help you:

  • Set specific goals for your virtual summit, so that you can confidently kick-start the summit process knowing the results will meet your business objectives
  • Pick a summit topic to demonstrate your expertise and define your target market so that your summit provides what people are looking for
  • Plan the outline of your summit and make crucial decisions about how you’ll present it so that it has the greatest impact on your audience 
  • Choose potential speakers who are the best fit for the needs of your summit attendees and who complement your area of expertise
  • Set up the basic systems and technology you need to run a successful virtual summit so that you are ready to put your sales funnel in place and conduct your interviews

  • Decide on the metrics you need so that you have them in place to measure the success of your summit
  • Make your choice of speakers from those in your niche who want to participate in your summit and set up interviews with them
  • Prepare the content you need for the summit, such as your presentation and graphics, so that you can save time later on
  • Create the sales pages you need to complete your sales funnel so that people will be taken smoothly from the registration process to the final offer
  • Record and edit the interviews you want in your pre-recorded video bank 
  • Identify different ways to promote your summit on social media so that you attract the maximum number of people to register
  • Create and schedule a sequence of emails for your existing subscriber list and new registrants so they have the information they need to attend the sessions they want
  • Provide a copy to your speakers to save them time and help them promote for you so that you take full advantage of having them as promotional partners
  • Launch your summit and be on hand to motivate and add value so that you provide the best customer and speaker support you can
  • Closeout your promotion and find methods to increase the profits so that you maximize the possibilities of your summit

We are all a part of dozens of Facebook groups, small communities through programs we’ve purchased, meetup groups, and LinkedIn groups.
