  • Attendees will learn strategies to create, grow, and foster a
    community that helps serve their professional brand.

    Starting a community

    Growing Your Community

    Leveraging Your Network

    Maintaining Your Support Network

  • WIBC is a social support network for women professionals and entrepreneurs. We believe when you surround yourself with a community of positive & encouraging people, you will strive!

  •  

     

     

  • As a speaker, you'll also get:

    • Free Access to the VIP All-Access Pass

    • Admission to a private speaker group to network and interact with other speakers

    • Invitation to a private speakers-only networking mixer prior to the summit.

  • How It’ll All Work

    The Event

     

    The event will run from Nov 16 and Nov 17 with pre-recorded presentations a live panel discussion, and live networking running each day. These presentations will include 20 minutes of content (with up to a 5-minute pitch). While the presentations themselves are pre-recorded, all speakers are asked to interact and/or answer any questions that may come up after the presentation is aired. This will be done through our private summit group.

     

    There will be a private group for attendees to hang out in, hold each other accountable, and ask any additional questions. If attendees have good questions while your presentation is going on, you’ll be able to chat in the group for a bit of an encore to answer those questions, connect with the attendees, and provide even more value.

     

    We will also have 2-live online networking sessions after the presentations have concluded. (Attendance is a perk for the VIP holders.) Attendance at these sessions are optional but highly recommended to further interact with new prospects. And you can totally pitch there too!

     

    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 VIP ticket. This includes an All-Access Pass for the replays, access to networking events, speaker prizes, digital gift bag, and an entry for prizes. 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.

  • What You'll Need to Submit

    So this all sounds great, but what kind of work does it require of you? Let’s chat about it! My goal is to make this all as easy as possible so that it is a win-win for all involved!

    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:

    • 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 easily.

    Presentation Slot

    You will receive a prospective time slot, based on your topic. During this slot, once your presentation has had time to air, you’ll also be able to jump into the group for an encore and to answer any great questions that weren’t answered in your presentation. These live sessions will be recorded and added to the VIP All-Access Pass.

    Presentation

     

    Next up is your presentation! This is a 20 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.

     

    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 that being said, you have your choice of the following presentation formats:

    • Slides

    • No slides

    • A mixture of the two

    • Interview-style

     

    If you’d like to go with the interview style presentation, you would schedule a time with me to do that the week of Oct 25.

     

    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:

    • 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)

    • Up to a 3-minute pitch

    • Include questions for attendees to answer in the chat box throughout to boost engagement

    Presentations are due by November 1.

     

    The VIP All-Access Pass 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: I expect this to convert well so I do not recommend contributing any 1:1 offers.

     

    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 Oct 29. You'll receive a questionnaire to fill out closer to that time to make passing the information to me nice and simple.

    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 Nov 1.

     

    You will receive your personal affiliate link so you can get in on the 40% commission that will come from any VIP All-Access Pass sales, (50% if you've contributed a premium bonus).

     

    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 private group throughout the week to help attendees stay excited and engaged.

     

    While you are not required to attend the events of other speakers, it’s highly encouraged! We’ll be able to get some great discussions going about the topics being presented.

    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 VIP All-Access Pass where you’ll receive a commission from all sales from traffic you refer to the event. 

     

    The commission structure is as follows:

    • 40 % for all speakers

    • 50 % for all speakers who include a premium bonus

    To make it as easy as possible for you to generate extra income, you will have access to resources 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.

     

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