A value-packed resource library to make planning, strategizing, and launching your first profitable online summit EASY. With new, resources added every month!
An online summit can grow your business in ways you never thought possible. Revenue, list growth and leads, connections with industry leaders, impact for your audience, community, visibility, and new opportunities in the months and even years that follow.
But there are two tricks to seeing those high-impact results:
When I planned my first virtual summit, there weren’t many resources available. I searched for hours only to find a couple podcast episodes giving vague details and a blog post or two. For the most part, I was on my own to figure it out. I watched and participated in other summits and took what I learned to make myself a detailed, step-by-step process to follow.
I launched my first summit a few months later with an email list of only 500 and brought in $16k. And that was the first one.
Since then, I’ve hosted 3 summits, with the most recent one making $22k. I’ve tweaked my process based on what works and what doesn’t along the way. I’ve made all kinds of templates and turned a large and complicated process into something easy and manageable.
I can now put a summit together in a fraction of the time thanks to written strategic processes, step-by-step tutorials, scripts, graphic templates, website templates and more.
And now, I’m giving them all to you.
I pitched an industry expert for my summit, using Krista's template as a guide. Not only did this person say "yes", but she began her reply by saying, "This is possibly the BEST pitch I've ever received." I now plan to reference her when pitching other speakers. Thank you so much, Krista!

When I got the idea to host a summit, I went straight to Krista. Her resources have blown me out of the water. There’s no way I would have been this organized without her detailed processes, and her website template saved me so. much. time. I feel confident and excited about hosting this summit, and I know the Summit Host Vault resources are going to help me get incredible results and make sure my audience gets the best summit I can offer!
When I decided to host my first online summit I spent weeks doing nothing but researching the process. I tuned into summits that were running, listened to podcast episodes, and read every blog post I could find.
It took serious work, but I ended up with a process that led me to nearly $16,000 in my very first summit. And that was starting with an email list of only 500 people. I've gotten even better results since.
Now I've taken my process, tools, and knowledge and put it together for YOU to implement in your own business to make planning an online summit easy.

This Vault is GOLD!
The cost of the Vault will increase each month, but your rate will never increase as long as you’re a member.
The primary platforms tech tutorials will be created for include WordPress and HeySummit. As of right now I do not plan to add tutorials for any other website platform. However, the templates for these platforms will be helpful regardless of which platform you decide to use. Keep in mind, that other platforms (like Squarespace) may limit some of the strategies you’re able to use.
Graphic templates will be provided for Canva and Photoshop.
Other software used includes Airtable, Google Sheets, and Google Docs.
New resources are released on the 15th of each month. Each time a new set of resources is released, you’ll get to vote on what I should make next!
I’m not sure when exactly Summit In A Box will launch! My best guess is Q2 2020, but I’ll keep you (and hopefully this) updated as I know more!
Once the product is complete and released into the world, your Vault membership will end. You’ll get an email from me with a coupon code. That coupon code will include a discount equal to 2x your total Vault investment! The longer you're a member, the bigger your discount will be.
The Vault does not include every single thing you’ll need to launch a summit, but each month we’ll get closer and closer to having exactly that. Even if you don’t plan to wait until the full Summit In A Box is complete, each resource we currently have for you will make your process that much easier.
Scripts and swipe copy are provided in three different formats:
All public-facing scripts and copy are reviewed and edited by sales and launch copywriter Elli Runkles.
Due to the digital nature of the tools, resources, and tutorials provided, refunds will not be given. However, you are welcome to cancel at anytime. If you decide to join again afterwards, your monthly price will increase to the current rate at that time.
I have kept accessibility in mind for all of the Vault's content.
There is video and written material. All videos have either transcripts or captions to go along with them. Transcripts for presentations and captions for step-by-step tutorials. All slides are provided as downloadable PDFs.
If you have any accessibility concerns, please email me at [email protected]. I am dedicated to making the Vault accessible to you!
The Summit Host Vault and Summit Host Process Map are different products. The Process Map includes the process I use to plan and launch summits and this (the Summit Host Vault), includes the strategies, tools, resources, templates, and tutorials to make each of those steps easy.
Many choose to purchase both, as they compliment each other well, but otherwise you should choose the Process Map if you want an organized list of tasks to complete and the Vault if you want step-by-step strategies, tutorials, and tools.
You are the perfect person to teach others how to host summits. You truly created a one-of-a-kind experience for us all that needs to be an industry standard for summits!
Ashley Gartland, Speaker from one of my previous summits.
I loved how easy and organized you made everything for me, getting to be featured alongside other amazing speakers, and getting to share a topic I'm passionate about with a group of people who it can really help. If you created a system for summits by doing this one, you should seriously sell it. I would buy it from you, that's how good it was!
Nevica Vazquez, Speaker from one of my previous summits.
