First of all we really want to Congratulate so many of you on the pre-conference sales. It was very exciting last week as we watched and assisted so many individuals that received your promotional year end mailings sharing the conference.
There was so much excitement as return participants felt they were getting such a great deal on this years conference ticket. They said it was a gift in itself at the half price of $65. So thank you so much for supporting this.
We understand that being year end many of you were away or didn’t get a chance to promote yet, but not to worry as we move into our next promotional offer for those who might have missed the Early Bird Holiday Special.
Here are the points from the call:
1. Next Promotion:
I have to apologize as I made a mistake on our first call when I mentioned the January Speaker Promotional Discount as being $50 off. I am terribly sorry for that. The correction is a $30 discount when using your Affiliate Coupon Code. This will take the registration fee from $129 to $99, this correction will make a difference on your affiliate commissions and a better reason for the communities to look forward to the Early Bird Special each year.
This discount and all relevant coupon codes will
ONLY be available up until January 31st, 2012.
Banners, Emails, Twitter, FB Templates are updated and ready in the Affiliate Center.
Template Text is there to support you and to give you an idea of the important points that are necessary for the promotion. Please feel free to massage the text to make it more personal for your community. We each have a specific voice and approach and we know it to be most effective coming from your voice.
Banners – these will stay the same through out the conference offering people 3 free sessions to try before registering. This is for your community to be able to take action and experience the platform immediately.
For all those speaking this year in 2012, an email with your personal link and $30 savings coupon code should already be in your “Inbox” (sent from Jennipher). Please make sure to look out for this to use in your communications.
3. Tickets for Promotions & Raffles
- If you would like to hold a raffle or special promotion to get more exposure, please contact Segovia Smith directly at 323-662-0230. He will support you to get the most out of the promotion. The Facebook promo and social contests we did last year were very successful.
4. Support Materials
We have chosen to be more eco conscious this year. We are restraining from printing postcards as many expressed that they did not use these. Instead we will supply you with the links below to be able to print out what you need to support your participation in this Virtual Platform.
a. Flyers: We will send you this link once they are completed.
b. Weekly Action Plan checklist to support you in the flow of your conference promotional efforts. This will help you to track when to send emails, post on Facebook and Twitter, place banners on your site, etc. We hope that this will also assist you in the flow of communication with your own community and the growth of your own email list.
c. Community Involvement Plan – A checklist to support you in building your communication with participants and other speakers before and after the conference. Keeping extended communities informed and involved with you.
