#048: 7 Summit Myths That You Believe
Today I want to talk some tough love & open some summit doors that many summit hosts leave closed. I’m going to call these summit myths. These are ideas, thoughts or beliefs that many summit hosts get in their head and can end up causing them critical summit damage if they don’t get it straightened out.
7 Summit Myths
✅ You MUST have big names on your summit for it to be successful - or The MORE BIG NAMES you have the more successful your summit will be.
✅ Social Media Will Fill My Summit.
✅ Using a sexy name or title for your summit is important to the success of your summit.
✅ The summit is the end!
✅ Summit Myth Number 5 is like when you know if you eat a bunch of donuts every day that you’ll eventually get fat.
✅ Being super over the top with all the technical aspects is important for the success of your summit.
✅ Blaming your summit success or lack there of on technical issues.
Tips and Advice
☑️ Don’t fill your summit full of all big names, anchors or influencers because they aren’t going to promote it.
☑️ Spend your time finding quality experts with a good audience that are willing to invest in the “Collaborative Marketing Strategy” of a summit and promote it along with everyone else.
☑️ When coming up with your name, and title and main point you have to be clear & use their words.
☑️ Your summit is the beginning. Not The End. Don’t get so wrapped up in your summit that you see it as an end to all your problems.
☑️ The level of success of your summit is related to the effort and time you put into your summit.
☑️ More is not always better. Don’t over complicate your summit. There are plenty of other ways to spend your time improving the quality of your summit, versus trying to ensure you have a heat map and split testing everything.
☑️ Take a step back and take responsibility.

I want to end this episode by saying,
"I believe in YOU & YOU can do this."
Summits are by far one of the most powerful ways to quickly grow your list, launch your platform & make more money! (Even if you are just getting started).
Don’t get caught up in Analysis paralysis, because the world needs to hear your message & there are people who are waiting for you to help them.
So just get started. Imperfect action is always better than doing nothing!
