      What Makes A Good Outreach

           ➡️     Reach out to your speakers

           ➡️     Mutual connections

           ➡️     Play the benefit of what’s in it for them

           ➡️     Share some big names that would be in the summit


      Bad Outreach Experience

           ❌     Generic copy and paste emails

           ❌     Not giving value to the speaker’s expertise or value that they can add

           ❌     Not doing research about your speakers

           ❌     Not spending time to get to know them

           ❌     Sending last minute invites


      Ideal Outreach Scenarios From A Speaker's Point

           ❇️     They want to know if the summit is congruent with what their offer is

           ❇️     Do a little background on the speaker

           ❇️     Know the value that the speaker can add to your summit/subject

           ❇️     Having a mutual connection would really help

           ❇️     Be more personal

           ❇️     Give them the dates and details of the summit right off the bat


      Strategy In Driving Traffic Through Pinterest

           ✔️     Come up with a blog post series

      • Different blog posts that are teaching about that topic that you're going to cover in the summit

      • Add value to those blog posts

      • It should be good quality blog posts

      • Within that blog post you could mention that summit 

      • You could have definite call to actions

      • You could even have the pop up on your blog posts be for that summit as well

      How To Diversify Pins

           ➡️     Change the headlines

           ➡️     Create different headlines and test those

           ➡️     Create different backgrounds

           ➡️     You can change the colors, one that has images of the speakers

           ➡️     Switch it up and see what really starts to convert the best

        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!

        Thank you and see you on the next episode!
