      3 Primary Offers

      1. Early Bird Offer

      2. Summit Live Campaign

      3. Last Chance Sequence

      Early Bird Offer

           ✔️      A special opportunity to purchase your summit offer before your summit goes live

           ✔️      Not to be confused with the one time offer

           ✔️      The early bird offer will start after they sign up for the virtual summit and typically ends the day before the summit goes live

           ✔️      Some options on how you position it: adding a special bonus or discounted price

           ✔️     Main purpose of this campaign is to create urgency around the offer

       

      Urgency vs Scarcity

           👉     Urgency is based on a time limit

      • Urgency is the most common tactic

      • This is when the time expires and so does the offer

      • The most common types of urgency is when the time expires

      • Either the price goes up or the offer ends

      • The price going up is the most typical type of urgency used in the early bird sequence

      • This keeps the offer valid as it doesn't lose any special bonuses

      • It drives more sales as the price will be increasing at a certain time.

      • This also gives you additional reasons to contact or email attendees and let them know about the offer as you don't want them to miss this opportunity. 

           👉     Scarcity is based on a number limit

      • Limiting the offer to a certain number of people

      • Scarcity isn't as common on digital products, but it can be used if you're offering something that can't be given to everyone

      • Examples: Free ticket to your live in person event, a one on one strategy call with you,  a limited number of people get free access to a product or membership

      Summit Live Campaign

           ✔️      Starts when the summit starts and go until the last chance sequence kicks in

           ✔️      This sequence doesn't have as much urgency or scarcity built into it

           ✔️      Primarily used as an awareness campaign to let the attendees know what they're getting and why it's important

           ✔️     It primarily gives the attendees all the information about the summit offer and the bonuses and why those are a value

           ✔️     The largest value is placed on maintaining access to the summit sessions once the summit ends

      Last Chance Sequence

           ✔️     This has the highest sales conversions based on the highest level of urgency

           ✔️     This sequence can start on the last day of the summit and extend until the final opportunity to purchase the summit offer

       

      Strategies You Can Use In Your Summit Sales Sequence

           ➡️     One time offer

      • A special one-time only discount off of the original summit offer

      • It's offered one time and one time only and that is immediately upon signing up for the virtual summit

      • As soon as your attendee registers, they would be presented with this opportunity to grab the summit offer at the cheapest price they will see

      • This is typically positioned on the thank you page immediately after they register

           ➡️     Diminishing bonus

      • A powerful scarcity tactic

      • Typically used during the early bird sequence before the summit starts

      • It could be used during the summit live sequence to drive up sales during the slow period

      • It can also be used during the last chance sequence

      • You will have a few extra bonuses that disappear over a period of time

           ➡️     Summit bonus

      • Used typically as a scarcity tactic

      • It's a one additional bonus that has a set number attached to it, such as the first 10 people or the first 100 sales

      • This would be a special bonus over and above what you offered in your summit offer

      • Once the number has been reached, the summit bonus is no longer available

      • Drives scarcity to the audience where if they don't act fast, they may lose the opportunity to get that bonus

      • Also used as a fast action bonus

           ➡️     Incremental price increase

      • One of the most common and one of the most effective

      • Typically used during the final last chance sequence

      • For a set period of time, the price will continue to go up until it hits a final price or is no longer available

      • The most common way it is used is on a daily basis

      • If your last chance sequence is three days, then each day the previous price goes away and the price goes up to a higher price

           ➡️     Offer ending

      • The most common and typically the most effective

      • When the final day or opportunity to buy the summit offer ends, the offer goes away and can no longer be purchased
