WHAT IS

The Uplevel Your Biz Summit?

The road to entrepreneurial success is woven with ups and downs. We created this free event to bring you inspirational stories and actionable advice from successful female entrepreneurs in five core areas we know will help you grow.​

The Uplevel Your Biz Summit is a 100% free virtual summit made with you in mind!

WHY YOU'LL LOVE

Being A Speaker

Build Brand Awareness

One of the main benefits of speaking at the event is building brand awareness. By sharing your expertise to the audience, you are positioning yourself as an expert. You are building brand awareness and recognition to a primarily new audience, that is what is so great about all of us coming together in a single event!

Grow Your Email List

While you won’t receive the list of attendees, there is still an opportunity to grow your email list. Your freebie will be mentioned several times and in several places - in the introduction interview, next to the video, under your bio, and more! This is your chance to blow the audience away with your brilliance and grow your audience.

Make Money

As a speaker, you have the opportunity to sign up to be an affiliate. That means that for every sale you make through your affiliate link you will make some moolah! Speakers receive 40% from all purchases made through their link. BUT if you provided a digital product for the VIP Product Power Pack, then as a thank you, you will earn 50% from your link.

Network with Speakers

Our favorite part of hosting summits is the connections we make. We get the opportunity to meet and talk with each of you and we want you to have that opportunity as well! That is why we are hosting a Speaker Meet + Greet (more details to come) and have created a Speaker-Only Facebook group (more details to come).

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

About Your Presentation

  • Your Presentation Should Be Value Focused

    The purpose of this summit is to provide as much value as possible to the attendees. Please avoid webinar-style presentations. These types of presentations tend to be all FLUFF with no real substance. Think of these more like workshops. The attendees should come out with VALUABLE and ACTIONABLE takeaways. This is your chance to really blow the attendee away and make a memorable impression.

  • You May Share An Offer At The End of Your Presentation

    While the presentation should be primarily value, that doesn’t mean you can’t pitch something. At the end of the presentation, you can take a minute or two to share a relevant offer that you believe would be useful to the audience. This can be your freebie (which will be linked on the page) or a paid offering of your choice.

  • Your Presentation Is Pre-Recorded

    While the event is live, your presentation will not be. Instead, you will record it ahead of time. This gives you time to prepare and record on your schedule, so you can be fully present during the summit. Once we have your presentation, we will edit it so that your intro interview is before the material.

  • Your Presentation Should Be 30-35 Minutes Long

    Please plan to deliver 30-35 minutes of content. If a presentation is too short, or too long, we might ask you to redo it. So please keep that in mind 🙂

  • You Will Join Us for An Intro Interview

    During one of our interview dates, we will hop on a Zoom call together for an intro interview. This will give us a chance to chat about you, your expertise, your presentation, your freebie and your VIP Product Power Pack offering (if applicable). We will also ask you your number tip for upleveling your biz. These interviews are short, but are a way to connect with and inspire the audience as well as get them excited for your presentation to come!

  • Your Presentation Must Be A MP4 File

    There are so many programs and several different ways to record your presentation. But before you submit your presentation, please make sure it is an MP4 file format. If not, you can convert it here.

WHAT MAKES A

Good Presentation

We have run several summits in the past and have helped countless others put on their own. This experience has shown us the elements of a good presentation and a few things to watch out for!

Things to Watch Out For

  • Don’t show PowerPoint/Keynote/Google Slides program (with the navigation bars) during your entire presentation
  • Make sure your headshot video isn’t overlapping important content on your slides
  • Record with a good internet connection
  • Be sure to speak clearly
  • Record in a distraction free setting

ANSWERS TO YOUR

Frequently Asked Questions

Toggle Yes! The summit itself is absolutely free. Attendees can sign up for their free ticket and watch the presentations as they are released each day. Each presentation will be available for attendees to watch for free for 24 hours. After the 24 hours, the only way to access the presentation is to upgrade to the VIP All-Access Pass.

For this summit, we have two paid offerings: the VIP All-Access Pass and the VIP Product Power Pack.

The VIP All-Access Pass will grant attendees lifetime access to all the presentations from the event. It will also include MP3 downloads of each presentation as well as a special workbook to go with the event.

The VIP Product Power Pack will include everything in the VIP All-Access Pass PLUS access to a bonus digital product bundle. The digital product bundle will include all the digital products provided by the amazing speakers.

There are several opportunities and tiers to upgrade.

Tripwire – Available for 15 minutes after signing up for the free ticket

  • VIP All-Access Pass: $47
  • VIP Product Power Pack: $97

Early Bird Pricing – Available before the summit starts

  • VIP All-Access Pass: $97
  • VIP Product Power Pack: $197

Regular Pricing – Available once the summit starts

  • VIP All-Access Pass: $127
  • VIP Product Power Pack: $247

No, just because someone signs up for the summit doesn’t mean they have consented to be emailed by all the speakers. However, you do have an opportunity to grow your list. This is where your freebie comes in. The link to opt-in to your freebie will be listed in several places from the website, to your speaker page, to the workbook, to the Facebook group and more.

You must submit your presentation to me by MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st. This is SUPER important because I need time to watch, create your presentation notes and edit your presentation. If by some chance you need a little extra time, please let me as soon as you know there is an issue.

Your presentation should be between 30-35 minutes. However, make sure it is no less than 25 minutes and no more than 45 minutes. We would much rather have a presentation on the shorter, than have fluff. Attendees will appreciate it as well.

Not at all! Each day during the summit, that day’s presentations will go live at 8 am PST. There is no set time for each presentation and there will be no chat. I have found that the attendees like the flexibility. What is encouraged though, is to be in the Facebook group the day of your presentation. Check in. engage with the attendees. Be there to answer questions if needed. Attend the Take Action Session at 2 pm PST that day (if you are available). The Facebook group will be the place for connection and engagement. If you haven’t already joined the Facebook group, you can do so here.

The recommended minimum promotion efforts are sending out 2 emails and posting 3 times on social media. But ideally you’ll promote as much as possible! The success of the event is a collective effort. We are going to do all we can to personally promote on our own channels as well as run Facebook ads, but each speaker needs to do their part as well!

Think about it this way. If only some speakers promote and others don’t, it really isn’t fair for the group. But if everyone promotes then our reach expands exponentially. Remember this is a group effort and when you promote the summit, you are supporting every speaker in the summit. #communityovercompetition

Promotion for the event is Monday, September 21st through Sunday, September 18th.

Promotional materials will be available by September 7th so you will have plenty of time to work ahead and get things scheduled if you would like.

Possibly! You have the opportunity to earn affiliate commission from each sale made through your affiliate link.

You will earn 40% commission on all VIP All-Access Pass and VIP Product Power Pack sales made through your affiliate link.

BUT if you contributed a digital product to the VIP Product Power Pack, then you will earn an additional 10% commission, making your commission 50% on all sales made through your link.

Since you are promoting the event anyways, might as well use your affiliate link and have the potential to earn extra income!

Yes! My favorite part of hosting summits is the connections I make. I get the opportunity to meet and talk with each of you and I want you to have that opportunity as well! That is why I am hosting a Speaker Meet + Greet (more details to come) and have created a Speaker-Only Facebook group.
