An all-access pass is a powerful way to make money through a virtual summit, but only if you do it the right way.
It’s totally possible to create an all-access pass that has your attendees jumping for the "buy now" button, but it's also possible to make one that totally flops.
No one wants ongoing access to presentations for $20. Your offer needs to be more appealing than that.
Let’s talk about where an all-access pass fits in your summit, the low-converting offer I see far too much, what a high-converting all-access pass looks like, and keys to ensure your attendees hit that "buy now" button.
Let's start with where the all-access pass fits into your summit.
With this model, it's free for someone to register and see your presentations for a limited amount of time. (Yes, you can do a paid virtual event, but that doesn't work well for most people, especially first-time hosts.)
Once an attendee registers for your event is your first chance to make money with an all-access pass. The registration Thank You page should be an all-access pass sales page with a limited-time offer.
From there, attendees will see your all-access pass offered consistently throughout the event.
Your all-access pass can either be the only thing you sell through your summit or you can sell both it and another offer at different times.
If you will be selling another offer, the all-access pass takes priority during the summit. That way, audience members who are new to you are presented with an easy-yes offer before being presented with your signature course, membership, or service.
At the same time, you'll build interest for your signature offer and make sure attendees know that it exists. Then, you'll transition into a launch for your other offer either on the last day of the event or right after it's over.
The offer you craft for your all-access pass can be the difference between you saying that summits do or don't work as a way to bring in money.
What doesn't work is an all-access pass that sells presentations for, like, $19. It doesn't work because no one only wants access to presentations. It's not high-value, and the $20 price shows that it's not high value.
With that, even if you make a ton of sales, you don’t bring in much revenue with an offer that small. 100 sales only brings in $1900. What if it was a $97 offer instead? Now we're talking!
The key to an all-access pass that converts is to give your audience what they want related to the goal of the summit. Determine what's going to help them take those next steps after the free portion of your summit is over.
What do they need to actually implement what they're learning? It could be things like:
You don't need to do all of these things, but these are examples of what can go into a good all-access pass that actually benefits your attendees.
Now that you know what a high-converting offer can look like, here are 4 keys to getting your attendees to hit the "buy now" button:
The “all-access” part of the all-access pass isn’t what gets attendees to hit “buy now” on your sales page. What gets attendees to buy is a well-rounded offer with some awesome bonuses that encourage cold audience members to be ready to buy from you fast.
Now that you know how to create your all-access pass, your action step for today is to brainstorm what your offer is going to look like. Have fun!
