I made this declaration in Adam Urbanski’s Navigator course and Adam immediately said, “name it now, find someone to get an optin page up for you and start promoting this today.”
Okay. I don’t move quite as fast as Adam does. I am doing what he suggested except it isn’t happening that quickly.
I chose a title immediately though, The Youth Empowerment Telesummit. And I have started contacting people to “enroll” them to participate as presenters. So far I have some very solid commitments from others who work with youth in one capacity or another. I am blown away by those who have accepted.
Tomorrow I will begin work on the optin page and get that up as quickly as possible. And I will reach out to extend more invitations to participate.
Writing the copy for the page will be my biggest challenge so I’m going to have to spend some time researching other optin pages for other telesummits so I can see what they are including. I have to collect bios on the presenters and their photos and a list of things they will consent to give away to listeners. The freebies they provide will bring listeners to their website to sign up to their mail lists. It’s a win-win situation.
The calls will be live via freeconferencecallhd.com. There will be either one or two opportunities to listen to the replays, then the interviews go into the vault for safekeeping until such time as I repurpose them into a CD package.
It isn’t really that difficult to create a telesummit; it is time consuming. And it’s a great way to practice your “enrollment skills” by having to talk to people about participating. I find that people are eager to be involved in your projects if they feel your passion. If you are genuine, it’s contagious.
I’m quite happy with how much has been accomplished in just two days and I’m fairly certain that these presenters and I will remain connected and be doing more things together in the future.
