When your summit results aren't looking the way you want, it's easy to focus on the fact that it's not working and go into a downward spiral.
But it's so important to focus on data and solutions instead of drama and problems.
Registration for my summit opened up this week, and the initial numbers are not where I'd like them to be. When I saw that my numbers were lower than expected, I had...
It's almost time to open up registration, but first, we need to test and make sure everything is working correctly.
This week in the Behind the Summit series, we are doing the final preparations to get ready to open up registration for this round of the summit. There were a few tweaks and last minute tasks that needed to happen this week, but the main focus was testing.
No matter how...
There are always a lot of questions related to summit tech. And today we're wrapping up our virtual summit tech series with a rapid-fire Q&A episode with some of the most common questions I get asked related to summit tech.
We'll cover things like:
ThriveCart is hands-down my top recommendation for your summit's cart and affiliate management platform.
You can totally make it work with others out there, but if it's in your budget and you're looking for something new, ThriveCart will not disappoint.
One of my favorite virtual summit monetization strategies is to use limited-time offers and price increases for the all-access pass.
While I know some people are opposed to “fast-action” style offers, if someone is willing to make a purchase of something before they’ve had a chance to experience the summit, I’m happy to give them a discount because of it.
In a typical virtual summit, attendees have access to each presentation for 24-hours. However, if they choose to upgrade to the all-access pass, that window gets extended.
But how in the world does that work?
In this episode, we'll break down how to manage 24-hour versus ongoing access to virtual summit presentations. And the solution is simple.
No behind-the-scenes magic required!
The right tech tools have a big part to play in how easy it is to manage your speakers. Because, let's be real, trying to get material from 20+ people by a certain deadline can get a little scary.
Today, we'll break down the tools you need and I'll share my top recommendations. We'll cover everything you need from initial speaker outreach to creating presentations.

Are you wondering how fancy and professional-looking your virtual summit presentations need to be?
You might have seen online events with hosts who pull out all the stops with perfect music, animated bumpers, special effects, and more. It can make you question whether your videos are good enough.
Don't get me wrong, we don't want poor quality, and putting some extra effort in...
You've probably seen a virtual summit offer MP3 recordings as a part of the all-access pass. The thing is, MP3s aren't easy to keep track of and listen to for most people.
I was talking about this on Instagram stories a while back and Lindsay from HelloAudio chimed in and said, "Not MP3...it has to be a podcast because it's easier to binge-listen."
And what a lightbulb moment that was!
If you'd have asked me before this week's podcast episode if Circle was a good platform to host a summit on, I'd have given you a confused-sounding "no".
How in the world would you host a well-organized, strategic event on a community management platform?
Turns out...it's a thing.
My friend and Summit in a Box student, Moira Cleary, experimented with hosting a summit on Circle and...
