#151: How To Find Your Perfect Audience Through Virtual Summits.
Christina Wessendorf found her perfect audience through the process of creating 3 different summits. Through challenges, and struggles she was able to overcome and create summits that made a difference in her audiences lives while allowing her to get her message out to more people. Plus the one critical mistake that she warns all summit hosts to be cautious about. All that and more on today’s episode.
Challenge On Her First Summit And How She Dealt With It
👉 Losing all her interviews
Reached out to the speakers, admitted her mistake, asked for another interview
Asked her tribe to encourage her and look for alternative speakers
Gave it her best to deliver her promise to her audience
On Her "Bombed" Second Summit
➡️ Doing her summit end of year
It’s harder to find speakers
Speakers are already booked for the year
Speakers don’t have time
Success Point On Her Third Summit
❇️ Connection to her speakers
Got her speakers on a first call to see if they match, if their audience and message matches with what she wants to deliver
To check if the character matches with her
2 Types Of Great Interviews
Someone who’s a contrast of you
Opposite ways to do it
Someone like you
Somebody who is really likely like you and feels like a great connection
On Email Copies
➡️ Writing your copies is not a point where you give up your energy
➡️ Copy is the second thing that your attendees will see from your summit
➡️ Choose a good subject line
➡️ Watch the interview again after you're not excited
Find one golden point why this interview is different from all the other interviews
It makes your copy easier to write
It also serves you to really promote this interview as an interesting interview
It also gives you opportunity to use the subject line to point out this golden point
➡️ Put the name of the speaker
It makes people interested to open your email
Strategies She Used When Hosting A Summit
👉 If you don’t have a team, hire a virtual assistant
Gives you a lot of support
They can follow up on your emails
Coordinate with the speakers to collect information
Makes you focus on the actual interview
👉 If you don’t want to hire a VA, use Dr. Mark’s Virtual Summits Software
It takes all the work that your virtual assistant is doing for you
Set up the landing page, collect the information of the speakers, create the affiliate links, if you want to make a paid version of your summit afterwards
Everything is included in the Virtual Summits Software
Christina's Final Piece Of Wisdom
"I'm super excited for you and I'm very proud of you that you think of this option because we have a lot of funnels we can use in order to, to start or grow a business. And I believe that when you get started, summits are the absolute best way to figure out your ideal clients, to get to know thought leaders in your market and in your niche and to build confidence that you need because you want to start as a leader or you want to improve as a leader. That also it’s a lot of different things, what you need to think about in order to create something good. You're also proud to share and promote with the speakers. So I also invite you from the heart to figure out if there is a business coach out there who shows you the framework. So Mark is just very close to you, you know him so well. So if you would love to run a summit I can also invite you just to check out his framework, to go to other coaches who are close to you and you know well and you trust because it's so important for you and your business. And especially right now in Corona, it's your chance to make an impact and really to serve and to solve some big problems that people have. So do not just try to put it all together. But I wish you all love success and this is, I think, the best way to have some help."
I’m going to give away all the best insights and knowledge but just need YOUR help!

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!
