#072: Post Summit Profits Strategy
Why are you settling for $15,000 summits when you could turn them into 6 figures with this four-step process? Never again will your summit be barren & dry. Get ready to rake in the cash with our post summit profits strategy! Let’s bring it in- Cha Ching Cha Ching!
3 Major Areas Commonly Done Incorrectly
👉 If your messaging is not correct no one even signs in your summit.
👉 Typically the issue when summit host says my summit didn’t work
👉 Could be the issue with speakers not promoting
The Summit Interview Session
👉 Most hosts have never had any training on how to do an impactful interview
👉 Essentially bores the audience to death
Post Summit Profits Strategy
👉 Doesn’t really affect the summit specifically but it affects the outcome of the summit
Misconception About Summits
❇️ The summit is the monetization strategy
2 Problems For Unprepared Summit Hosts
It causes disappointment and financial struggle
They will end up losing much of that new audience, as they don’t have something to sell them
2 Perspectives To View Your Summit
The first time it launches
➡️ This is an important moment
➡️ Capitalize for this
➡️ Make sure you are primed for your monetization strategy
➡️ Launch something to this audience after the summit ends
➡️ Could be an online course, coaching program, membership program, or anything
➡️ Best time to launch this is 7-10 days after summit ends (after encore weekends or bonus day)
When you turn it into an Ever-Summit
Maximizing Your Monetization Strategy
✅ Push your audience to a webinar (masterclass) immediately after the summit
✅ Offer an opportunity to have a one on one consultation with you after the masterclass
✅ Show your normal fee for a consultation
✅ Give them a discounted rate if they sign up during the webinar
✅ Move client towards the high ticket program ($10,000 - $15,000)on the consultation call
✅ Offer a downsell to those who say no ($3,000 - $6,000 depending on the program)
✅ For everyone else, offer an online program ($1,000-$2,000) with an upsell to a group coaching program
✅ One final downsell to a smaller priced program (around $197-$297)
✅ Last thing we’ll offer is a membership program for those who still haven’t purchased
✅ Membership can be anything from $9/month to $97 a month depending on the audience
4 Stages Of Ever-Summit Monetization Strategy
✔️ Is your summit
✔️ Pull new audience and build a relationship with them
✔️ Creates know, like, and trust
✔️ Focused on monetizing the new audience
✔️ Offer them something to move along the customer journey
✔️ Single solution to that same problem they had on the summit
✔️ Typically this is like an online course
✔️ Create the transformation for our audience
✔️ Solving all the problems that revolve around getting the audience this transformation
✔️ Coaching program or certification
✔️ Recurring revenue stage (i.e. Membership)
✔️ Audience trusts you at this point
✔️ You are the place they go to for the answers
✔️ Connect them with the experts who have the ongoing answers to their other problems
Dr. Mark's Warning

"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).

So just get started. Imperfect action is always better than doing nothing!
