In this episode, I talk with Jaime Slutzky, team leader of the company Virtual Summit Tech. This company is centered around helping clients run their own virtual summit, which can be described as “a series of webinars on steroids.”
These virtual summits are quickly growing in popularity, but are also very intense in comparison to releasing a podcast, webinar, etc. They are an amazing way of getting your name out there as an expert while holding great value in how you can choose to monetize and repurpose them into other products in the future.
A Few Exciting Highlights:
- How virtual summits can grow your email list and expand your impact
- How to sell your video content as a package, bundle packages, or membership options
- Copywriting advice
- Tips from the technology side of virtual summits
- The minimum requirements for getting started on your own
- Selling platforms and payment processing
- Course delivery platforms
- Why a well-produced summit is so important
- How to get people to participate applying Psychology

“Whenever I get copy from a client, I read it as if I’m that person that randomly got sent a link from their great aunt that said, ‘Hey, you should check this out.’ They have no context for why they’re clicking on this link, so if they can get engaged in the content and what you’re offering, and you make them feel something, then you’re a winner.”
“Some tend to assume too much when sending their copy. Don’t assume, go from the context of assumption, that this person knows nothing about you, nothing about your character, nothing about your business, and you want to speak to them at a professional level and in a way to engage them.”
“If you’re really good at something in your job, think about how you can transition that into something freelance/independent.”
“Summits are the new webinar, but a lot more work. You can’t just throw it together in a weekend.”
“Don’t give stuff away just because you’re learning.”
