On Andrea's Pre-Recorded Sessions

     👉     Use slides

     👉     Ask them the 3 Ws

  • What do you sell? 

  • Who is it for?

  • Why does it matter?

     👉     Give them 2 to 3 examples while they’re writing it down to avoid awkward silence

Andrea's Summit Strategies

     ✔️     Hype up your audience

  • Live video

  • Instagram stories

     ✔️     Post regularly about your summit

     ✔️     Support the other speakers


Promoting Your Summit

     ❇️     Think about your personal balance

     ❇️     Do at least two live videos

  • One when announcing the summit and one for the last chance to sign up

     ❇️     Between those live videos, have static posts that talk about the summit

  • Typically three or four more times

  • Focus on the benefits of attending the summit

     ❇️     Give them a reminder


Andrea's Parting Piece Of Wisdom

     "I think the hardest part about summits is building that sense of community. So if you can build a sense of like we're all in this together, this is our group of people, then the success of your summit is going to be that more dynamic. The actual tech behind it doesn't matter. I've seen summits run in Facebook groups. I've seen them run in WordPress websites. I've seen them run on things like Mighty Network. The actual tech of it doesn't really matter. As long as you can get your people together in one spot and get them talking together in one spot, you're going to have such an amazing sense of camaraderie that's going to make it a lot easier to do your upsell, promote future segments, whatever the case may be, but think about how you can build the community around your summit and I think you're going to be in for an amazing experience."

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!
