I’m so excited to team up with you to pull off something that’s going to be absolutely incredible. After the success of the previous 4 events we're going to do version 5.0 of The Page Builder Summit.
The summit is a 5-day event that will help WordPress developers, designers, freelancers and agencies to build better websites faster and more efficient. As well as learn more about the page builders and the awesome things you can do with them.
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 we didn’t answer, email either Nathan: firstname.lastname@example.org or Anchen: email@example.com.
As a speaker, you'll also get free access to the Page Builder PowerPack 5.0

Let’s do a quick rundown of how the whole thing will work.
The event will run from 20-24 February 2023 with 7-8 pre-recorded presentations running each day. These presentations will include 30-40 minutes of content (with up to a 3-minute pitch) and a live chat.
While the presentations themselves are pre-recorded, all speakers are asked to attend their presentation time live to interact with attendees in the chat box. There is no live video component, so attendance in pjs is recommended
Along with the live presentations, 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.
There will also be daily networking or co-working sessions for purchasers of the Page Builder PowerPack. Attendance as a speaker isn't required, but of course you're more than welcome to join us!
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! We'll even have a suggested posting/sending schedule for you to make promo easy to 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 Page Builder All Access Pass. This includes an All-Access Pass for the replays and worksheets as well as additional bonuses we’ll all throw in. 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. Woop!
So this all sounds great, but what kind of work does is require of you? Let’s chat about it! My goal is to make this all as easy as humanly possible so we can all have a blast while providing great value 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:
- 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.
Next up is your presentation! This is a 30-40 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 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:
- No slides (just your gorgeous/handsome face)
- A mixture of the two
- Tutorial style
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
- 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 pitch for a freebie or joining jour email list
- Include questions for attendees to answer in the chat box throughout to boost engagement
Presentations are due before 23 January 2023.

3. Worksheet for Workbook
We'll be creating a workbook for All-Access Pass holders. You can contribute any questions that go along with your presentation if appropriate to enhance engagement and encourage action-taking. You can also add links or a CTA to this worksheet if you'd like.
If you want to create something for everyone, you're welcome to do that as well. We can add the link to the chat or use this as a lead magnet for you.
4. All Access Contribution
The Page Builder All Access Pass will be a huge addition to the presentations we’re running. (Learn more here.)
To make it even more valuable, I’ll ask each of you to provide one resource to add. This includes things like:
- Courses (big or small)
- 1-3 month memberships
Note: We 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 not something you're giving away for free somewhere else) will get a 50% affiliate commission on sales, rather than 40%.
Information for these resources is due on 23 January 2023. You'll receive a questionnaire to fill out closer to that time to make passing the information to us nice and simple.
Need tips on what kind of bonus converts the best? Learn more here.)
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 on social media and to email their lists during the promotion period, starting on 06 February 2023.
You’ll want to share using your affiliate link (which you can set up here) so you can get in on the 40% commission that will come from any All Access Pass (50% if you've contributed a premium bonus).
You’ll find swipe copy and graphics in the Resource Vault below.
6. 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!
All I ask is that you participate in the chat during your presentation slot 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! We’ll be able to get some great discussions going about the topics being presented.
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 ASAP but before 15 March 2023.
The commission structure is as follows:
- 40% for all speakers
- 50% for all speakers who include a premium bonus to the All Access Pass
The pricing structure will be:
- $47 for 30 minutes fast action 06 - 20 February (before Kickoff)
- $97 for 30 minutes fast action 20 - 28 February (after Kickoff)
- $97 Early Bird from 06 - 20 February (before Kickoff)
- $147 from 20 February
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 you can create or look up here.
As with all affiliate promotions, be sure to disclose that you’re an affiliate when sharing with your audience.
Now for those resources I promised to make your life as easy as possible.
