How it'll all work

The event will run from October 29 - 30 with both live sessions and pre-recorded presentations running each day. Please review the outline below with presentation lengths for each type of session:

Leading up to the summit, we’ll have three weeks of affiliate promotion. You’ll be provided with email swipe copy, social media swipe copy, and social media graphics to make it all easy! We'll even have a suggested posting/sending schedule for you to make promo easy.

What I'll need from you

1. Basic Information

The first thing I’ll need is some very basic information from you so I can finish up our registration page and speakers page.

This information includes:

  • Name as you would like it to appear
  • Title
  • Bio
  • Square headshot
  • Presentation description

2. Presentation

Please structure your content in a way that allows attendees to walk away inspired with strategies to implement right away. 

You are free to use your presentation however you’d like in the future.

Your presentation should include actionable content. Here’s the suggested format:

  • A quick introduction
  • An overview of your topic
  • Where people go wrong with your topic and tend to overcomplicate it
  • Teaching section
  • Specific action steps (with the goal of simplifying their existing process)
  • Include questions for attendees to answer in the chat box throughout to boost engagement

Pre-recorded presentations are due by October 5, 2020.

3. Worksheet

Along with each presentation will be a worksheet. There are a few reasons behind this:

  • They encourage people to take action, which increases value
  • It’s an easy way for viewers to take notes

The content of the worksheet should follow along with your presentation and encourage attendees to take action. You are more than welcome to include links and a call-to-action at the end.

If you'd like an example, you can see the contents of my worksheet from 2018 here.

Like I said, this process is meant to be as easy as possible so you have a couple options. You can either:

  • Create the worksheet yourself, using your own branding. With this option, you’re free to reuse it in the future however you’d like.
  • Write out your worksheet contents and send it to leslie@resilienceimpact.com to be put into the summit’s worksheet template.
  • Have my team take care of it all.

Worksheets or worksheet information will be due on October 5, 2020. 

4. Promotion

The power of an online event comes from a group of experts coming together for a single cause. The joint promotion that happens because of that is a huge benefit to everyone involved.

Because of that, everyone is encouraged to share on social media and to email their lists during the promotion period, starting on October 8th.

You’ll want to share using your affiliate link (which you can set up here) so you can get in on the 30% commission that will come from any sales.

You’ll find swipe copy and graphics in the Resource Vault below.

5. Tech Check

For live workshops and keynote presenters, we will have a mandatory tech check the week of October 19th. Leslie will reach out to schedule an individual appointment time.

5. Live Participation

And last comes participation during the event. 

Please mark your calendar to be available during your presentation time to participate in the chat and help attendees stay excited and engaged.

While you are not required to attend the events of other speakers, it’s highly encouraged! We’ll be able to get some great discussions going about the topics being presented.

Affiliate Details

While online events are great for overall visibility and making new connections, a little extra income never hurts either, right?

That’s exactly why I’ve set up an affiliate program for the Trauma-Informed Schools Institute where you’ll receive a commission from all sales from traffic you refer to the event. Payouts will be made by November 13, 2020.

The commission structure is 30% for all speakers.

The pricing structure will be:

  • $425 per individual registration
  • $3,000 per schoolwide registration

To make it as easy as possible for you to generate extra income, the Resource Vault includes things like email swipe copy, social media copy, and social share graphics. However, you’re more than welcome to write your own copy and even run your own Facebook ads. 

Just remember to use your affiliate link, which you can create or look up here.

As with all affiliate promotions, be sure to disclose that you’re an affiliate when sharing with your audience.
