Speaker Information + Resources

Hey there. I’m so excited to team up with you to pull off something that’s going to be absolutely incredible.

The Breastfeeding Beyond Babyhood Summit is a 5-day event that will help moms of older nurslings go from isolated to supported, no matter what their breastfeeding goals.

On this page, you’ll find all kinds of resources meant to make your life as a speaker as easy as possible and answer any questions you might have. If you run into a question I didn’t answer, email me at sradford03@gmail.com or ask over in the Facebook group.

As a speaker, you’ll also get free access to the All Access Pass, so you can learn more about what your fellow speakers offer and network.

How it'll all work

Let’s do a quick rundown of how the whole thing will work.

The event will run from July 26-30 with around 5 pre-recorded presentations running each day. These presentations will include 15-20 minutes of content (with up to a 3-minute pitch). All-access pass holders will also have access to worksheets and/or checklists related to each presentation.

There will be a Facebook group for attendees to hang out in, hold each other accountable, and ask all of us additional questions. If attendees have good questions while your presentation is going on, you’ll be able 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.

The additional Facebook live is not required, but it’s a great way to connect with our moms.

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 super easy. I’ll even have a suggested posting/sending schedule for you to make promo easy, whether you DIY or outsource to a VA.

During the promotion phase, as the summit is running, and for a week after the summit is complete, we’ll also be promoting the All-Access Pass. This includes lifetime access to replays with audio tracks added (in case moms want to listen without watching), access to bonus hot seats and live sessions, and access to courses and tools contributed by our speakers. This pass 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.

What I'll need from you

So this all sounds great, but what kind of work does it require of you?

Here’s what you need to know: My goal is to make this all as easy as humanly possible for you so we can all have a blast while supporting breastfeeding moms and growing our businesses.

1. Basic Information

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

This information includes things like:

  • Name
  • Title
  • Bio
  • Square headshot

Once you give me the thumbs up that you’re in, I’ll send you a link where you can upload all this information easily.

2. Interview Slot Scheduled

If you’d prefer an interview format over a slide show, the next thing I’ll need is for you to schedule your interview slot with me. Click here to see the list of times that are available and to schedule yours. (Slots are first-come first-served, so if you have a tight schedule be sure to grab your spot right away).

While your presentation will be pre-recorded, you’ll still be required to be in the Facebook group at some point on the day of your time slot to answer questions and connect with attendees. Once your presentation has had time to air, you’ll also be able to jump into the Facebook group for an encore and to answer any great questions that weren’t answered in your presentation. (These Facebook lives will also be added to the All Access Pass).

3. Presentation

Next up is your presentation. This is a 15-20 minute pre-recorded presentation that is meant to be more friendly and casual than perfect and structured. We want our attendees to learn something useful while having fun in the process.

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:

  • Slides
  • No slides (just your gorgeous/handsome face)
  • A mixture of the two
  • Interview-style

If you’d like to go with the interview style presentation, schedule a time with me to do that here. You’ll still be responsible for editing if any is needed, but we’ll work together to come up with questions.

No matter what format you choose, you are free to use your presentation however you’d like in the future.

Your presentation should include great, actionable content. Here’s the suggested format:

  • A quick introduction
  • An overview of your topic
  • Misconceptions people have about your topic
  • Teaching section
  • Specific action steps (with the goal of alleviating their issues)
  • Up to a 3-minute pitch (optional)
  • Include questions for attendees to answer in the Facebook group throughout to boost engagement

Presentations are due by July 5.

4. Worksheet

I’d love for you to get a chance to add people to your email list by providing a worksheet. If you’re interested, please give me the link to a freebie worksheet page for you. Just make sure your freebie is relevant to your presentation topic – a checklist or a tracker (instead of just a fill-in-the-blank sheet to follow your presentation) will work well too.

5. All Access Pass Contribution

The All Access Pass will be a valuable addition to the presentations we’re running. To make it even more helpful to our moms, I’ll ask each of you to provide one resource to add. This includes things like:

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

Note: I expect this to convert well so I do not recommend contributing any 1:1 offers.

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 (aka something you sell for at least $40, not something you’re giving away for free somewhere else) will get a 50% affiliate commission on sales, rather than 30%.

Information for these resources is due on July 5. You’ll receive a questionnaire to fill out closer to that time to make passing the information to me nice and simple.

6. Promotion

The power of this online summit comes from a group of world-class experts (like yourself) coming together to help moms of older nurslings. The joint promotion that happens from this synergy is a huge benefit to everyone involved.

Because of this power, everyone is encouraged to share on social media and to email their lists during the promotion period, starting on July 12.

You’ll want to share using your affiliate link (which I’ll send you) so you can get in on the 30% commission that will come from any All Access Pass sales (50% if you’ve contributed a premium bonus).

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

7. Live Participation

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 (whew!).

All I ask is that you participate in the Facebook group during your presentation day and interact in the Facebook group throughout the week to help attendees stay excited and engaged.

While you are not required to attend the events of other speakers, it’s highly encouraged! I’m so excited to see what happens when we network and share ideas with each other.

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 August 30 (unless someone buys between August 1-7, and then you’ll be paid out for those purchases on September 30).

The commission structure is as follows:

  • 30% for all speakers
  • 50% for all speakers who include a premium bonus 

The pricing structure will be:

  • $47 for 15 minutes after initial registration
  • $67 from July 12 – July 26
  • $97 from July 30 – August 6

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 look like this: https://XXXXXX–evidence-basedmommy.thrivecart.com/bbb-fast-action-vip/. Go to ThriveCart to look up your own affiliate tracking code.

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)
  • To-do list with due dates so you can keep track of everything easily
  • Email swipe copy and suggested send dates
  • Social media swipe copy and suggestion posting dates
  • Social media graphics
  • Workbook template (you’re free to create your own branded workbook)

View the resources here.

For the sake of clarity, here are your current action steps:

  • Join the speaker Facebook group
  • Provide your basic information once the link comes through

Remember to grab your to-do list and get things added to your calendar. Because if you’re like me, if it’s not in your calendar, it doesn’t exist.
