Speaker Information + Resources

Summit dates: August 13-15, 2024

 

Hey hey, awesome speaker! We’re super excited to partner with you for the Food & Herb Preservation Summit!

Food & Herb Preservation Summit is a 3-day event that will help gardeners preserve more food and herbs for a happier and healthier life.

Our goal for this summit is that attendees will walk away with actionable steps to take to preserve the bounty they’ve grown this year season!

This page will serve as a reference for everything you need to know, whether it be explained here or linked. You should always be able to come to this page and find what you need, so make sure to bookmark it!

If you run into a question we didn’t answer, email our Speaker Outreach Coordinator at kristi@homesteadbundles.com, or reach out in the speaker Facebook community.

How it will work

All of the speaker presentations will be held on separate landing pages, and discussion will be held in an attendee Facebook group set up specifically for this event.

If attendees have questions while your presentation is going on, they will post them in your presentation thread in the group where you can answer them. You’re welcome to go live in the Facebook group for a bit of an encore to answer those questions, connect with the attendees, and provide even more value.

Leading up to the summit, we’ll have two weeks of promotion. You’ll be provided with email swipe copy, social media swipe copy, and social media graphics to make it all easy! 

During the promotion phase, as the summit is running, we’ll also be promoting the All Access Pass. This includes extended access to the replays and tons of speaker bonuses. This will provide immense value to our attendees, while making the work of promoting and creating a presentation worthwhile by allowing you to bring in affiliate commissions and grow your email list. Yay!

The Food & Herb Preservation Summit will run from August 13-15, 2024. Presentations will include 15-30 minutes of content (with up to a 3-minute freebie pitch).

Your presentation should include strong, actionable content and provide a transformation for attendees, moving them closer to growing food and herbs. Here’s the suggested format:

  • 3-minute or less introduction
  • Topic overview
  • Where people go wrong when preserving food or herbs
  • Teaching section
  • A challenge and specific action steps to give a transformation
  • Up to a 3-minute pitch* 

While the presentations themselves are pre-recorded, all speakers are asked to check the Facebook group for any questions directed toward them in their presentation thread. Suggested guidelines for checking in are:

  •  A few times during your presentation day
  • Once a day during the summit

Of course, you are more than welcome to interact with attendees in there as much as you’d like beyond these guidelines. The more you interact with the attendees, the sooner they get to know, like, and trust you.

What We'll ask of you

Here’s what we’ll need from you:

BASIC INFORMATION – DUE ASAP (MAY 15 AT THE LATEST)

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

Once you give me the thumbs up that you’re in, our Speaker Outreach Coordinator will send you a link where you can upload all this information easily.

Due by May 15, 2024

ALL ACCESS PASS CONTRIBUTION INFO – DUE JUNE 29, 2024

The All Access Pass will be a huge addition to the presentations we’re running. To make it even more valuable and to give you an additional way to grow your email list, we’ll ask each of you to provide one resource to add. This includes things like:

  • Templates
  • Workbooks
  • Courses (big or small)
  • 1-month memberships
  • eBooks

It’s totally up to you to decide whether you’d like to create something new or provide something you already have. While this isn’t required, it’s highly encouraged that you participate.

Anyone who does contribute a premium resource will get a 50% affiliate commission on sales, rather than 40%. It’s also an opportunity to collect hundreds of extra email addresses as attendees claim your offer.

We cannot accept freebies or percentage-off offers.

Information for these resources is due on May 29, 2024. You’ll receive a link to a form to fill out closer to that time to make passing the information to me nice and simple.

Attendees will be able to start claiming your bonus right when registration opens on January 15, 2024.

Due by June 29, 2024

promo resources will be available on July 16, 2024

BONUS COMPANION MATERIAL/SUPPLIES LIST – DUE JUNE 29, 2024

Bonus companion material/supplies list is required to go along with your presentation. You are welcome to add affiliate links or link to an Amazon list for your project so you can make a little money through it. The bonus material needs to have step-by-step instructions for the attendee to follow.

Due by June 29, 2024

 

EDITED VIDEO PRESENTATION/DEMONSTRATION – DUE JUNE 29, 2024

Next up is your presentation! This is a 15-30 minute pre-recorded presentation that is meant to be more friendly and casual than perfect and structured. We want our attendees to learn something great, while having fun in the process. Please use the National Center for Home Food Preservation for canning guidelines, as it’s imperative that we only give tested preservation/canning instructions.

Please structure your content in a way that allows attendees to walk away feeling like they’ve really learned something, rather than a webinar format where they feel like they’re missing something that they need to buy from you asap.

With that being said, you have your choice of the following presentation formats:

  • Overhead-shot instructional video
  • Slides/your face (if applicable)
  • A mixture of the two

No matter what format you choose, you are free to use your presentation however you’d like in the future. In an effort to preserve the value of the All Access Pass, we ask that you please refrain from giving it away for free for at least 90 days.

Your presentation should include great, 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)
  • Up to a 3-minute freebie pitch

Presentations are Due by June 29, 2024

PROMOTION – JULY 30 THROUGH AUGUST 15, 2024

The power of an online summit 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 twice by emailing your lists, and share twice on your social media channel with the largest reach during the promotion period, starting on July 30, 2024.

You’ll want to share using your affiliate link so you can get in on the 40% commission that will come from any All Access Pass sales (50% if you’ve contributed to the all access pass).

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

EVENT PARTICIPATION – REQUIRED ON YOUR PRESENTATION DAY

And last comes participation during the week of the event. Since we’ll already have done the work of creating the presentations and extra resources, we’ll be able to sit back and relax for the most part!

While the presentations themselves are pre-recorded, all speakers are asked to check into their dedicated presentation thread on Facebook and answer the attendees’ questions a few times during the summit. Suggested guidelines for checking in are:

  • During your presentation day (periodically)
  • The next day

Participating in the event discussion with attendees strengthens the “know, like, and trust” factor. The more your attendees interact with you, the more they get to know you, like you, and eventually trust you.

SUMMIT DATES – AUGUST 13-15, 2024

 

AFFILIATE PAYOUTS – BY SEPTEMBER 15, 2024

Affiliate Details

While summits 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 All Access Pass where you’ll receive a commission from all sales from traffic you refer to the event. Payouts will be made by March 7, 2024.

The commission structure is as follows:

  • 40% for all speakers
  • 50% for all speakers who include a contribution to the All Access Pass

The pricing structure will be:

  • $35 for 20 minutes after initial registration
  • $55 from July 30 to August 12
  • $85 from August 13-15

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 will be emailed to you before you receive promotional materials. (Your affiliate link will be set up and emailed to you before the Promotional Materials are provided to you.)

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

Resource Vault

Now for those resources I promised to make your life as easy as possible.

In this folder you’ll find the following resources:

  • Summit branding information (in case you’d like to show off that you’ve been featured on your website)
  • Email swipe copy and suggested send dates
  • Social media swipe copy and suggestion posting dates
