Through the magic of telesummits, brand-new and experienced entrepreneurs are adding hundreds and thousands of people to their lists, while becoming known as the de facto expert in their field.
In fact, hosting a telesummit is one of the top, most economical list-building tools around.
What exactly is a telesummit?
A telesummit is a virtual event, where one host pulls together a collection of experts over a designated period of time and interviews them all on a specific topic, for free, while a virtual audience tunes in.
How do you make money hosting a telesummit?
After the free recordings play, usually for a 24- to 48-hour window, all of the opted-in guests are invited to purchase the series for a nominal fee.
But the real money in telesummits is what you do with all the new leads after it’s over. You can offer strategy sessions and make one-on-one high-ticket sales or go directly into an online launch. The choice is yours; the possibilities are sky-high.
So are you ready to host your own telesummit? Here are 3 ways to figure that out:
- Do you want to be known in a specific niche or expert subject area? If you’re waiting for someone to knock on your door and “discover” you, you may be waiting a very long time. If you want to get known in your field, you have to find a way to assume the throne. A telesummit is an amazing tool for that, because, when you interview top experts in your field, your audience automatically sees you as an authority as well. Hosting a telesummit can put you on top of the pack…overnight.
- Are you in a niche area that doesn’t use telesummits? Telesummits can be especially lucrative for niches that rarely have access to a collection of experts all in one place and time. I’ve seen boutique businesses in industries from personal photography to corporate content development, doing seven-figures from the leads they’ve collected from telesummits.
- Do you love to learn? If you follow our telesummit model, you’re pulling together up to 12 experts, over a three-day period, to create your own mini university. So if you weren’t already the most knowledgeable expert in your topic area, you truly will be by the time your telesummit is over. It’s kind of like getting paid to learn from the top people in your industry.
Bonus: The news gets even better, because, once you finish your telesummit, you have a great packaged program that you can use as a bonus for future programs that you offer as well as a bonus offer to make when promoting an affiliate. Not to mention that you now have a bunch of hot interviews that you can leverage all over social media, tagging and using the name of the guest that you interviewed.
If that sounds good to you, and you’re ready to learn how to build your list and own your category overnight by hosting a telesummit, there’s still time to sign up for my live, virtual event, The ULTIMATE Telesummit Formula, December 17. Or, you can attend class #1 free this Saturday! Details above…
