WHAT IS

The Profitable Tech VA Summit

The summit built for tech VAs looking to grow their income, impact, and influence.

This event is different because it features 4 different tracks for attendees:

Planning Your Business - Think goal planning, setting prices and packages, and even branding.

Building Your Business - Think creating a website, setting up systems and processes, and even client experience.

Launching Your Business - Think email marketing, social media marketing, content marketing, and of course how to get clients.

Scaling Your Business - Think starting an agency, hiring their first team member, digital products, funnels and more.

I created this free event to help empower fellow female entrepreneurs in creating a life and business that they love!

WHY YOU'LL LOVE

Being A Speaker

Build Brand Awareness

One of the main benefits of speaking at the event is building brand awareness. By sharing your expertise to the audience, you are positioning yourself as an expert. You are building brand awareness and recognition to a primarily new audience, that is what is so great about all of us coming together in a single event!

Grow Your Email List

While you won’t receive the list of attendees, there is still an opportunity to grow your email list. Your freebie will be mentioned several times and in several places - in the introduction interview, next to the video, under your bio, and more! This is your chance to blow the audience away with your brilliance and grow your audience.

Make Money

As a speaker, you have the opportunity to sign up to be an affiliate. That means that for every sale you make through your affiliate link you will make some moolah! Speakers receive 40% from all purchases made through their link. BUT if you provided a digital product for the VIP Product Power Pack, then as a thank you, you will earn 50% from your link.

Network with Speakers

My favorite part of hosting summits is the connections I make. I get the opportunity to meet and talk with each of you and I want you to have that opportunity as well! That is why we'll have a Speaker-Only Facebook group, so you can make connections with your fellow speakers before the event even begins!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

About Your Presentation

Your Presentation Should Be Value Focused

The purpose of this summit is to provide as much value as possible to the attendees. Please avoid webinar-style presentations. These types of presentations tend to be all FLUFF with no real substance. Think of these more like workshops. The attendees should come out with VALUABLE and ACTIONABLE takeaways. This is your chance to really blow the attendee away and make a memorable impression.

You May Share A Free Offer At The End of Your Presentation

While the presentation should be primarily value, that doesn’t mean you can’t pitch something. At the end of the presentation, you can take a minute or two to share a relevant free offer that you believe would be useful to the audience. We want to avoid the summit becoming one big pitch fest, that is why only free offers are allowed to be pitched at the end. I highly recommend you push the freebie you provide during the summit and set up a tripwire on the end of it!

Your Presentation Is Pre-Recorded

While the event is live, your presentation will not be. Instead, you will record it ahead of time. This gives you time to prepare and record on your schedule, so you can be fully present during the summit. Once we have your presentation, we will edit it so that your intro interview is before the material.

Your Presentation Should Be 25-35 Minutes Long

Please plan to deliver 25-35 minutes of content. If a presentation is too short, or too long, we might ask you to redo it. So please keep that in mind 🙂

You Will Join Me for An Intro Interview

During one of our interview dates, we will hop on a Zoom call together for an intro interview. This will give us a chance to chat about you, your expertise, your presentation, your freebie and your Business Accelerator Pass Bundle offering (if applicable). These interviews are short, but are a way to connect with and inspire the audience as well as get them excited for your presentation to come!

Your Presentation Must Be A MP4 File

There are so many programs and several different ways to record your presentation. But before you submit your presentation, please make sure it is an MP4 file format. This is to ensure I have no issues when it comes to editing. If your presentation is in another format, you can convert it here.

WHAT MAKES A

Great Presentation

I have run several summits in the past and have helped countless others put on their own. This experience has shown me the elements of a good presentation and a few things to watch out for!

EXTRA EXPOSURE WITH

Instagram Story Takeovers

The Profitable Tech VA Summit would be nothing without the amazing speakers like YOU! And that is why it is important to me that I am able to highlight you as much as possible.

So I want to give you the opportunity to do an Instagram Story Takeover!

This is completely optional, but is a great opportunity to promote the event and introduce you to the audience before the event even begins!

How It Works

  1. You record or capture your Instagram Story responses to the prompts below.
  2. Once I receive them via email at hello@lindseyaleson.com, I will review and make sure they are all working and that I am able to download them.
  3. Then I will let you know what day your Instagram Story Takeover will go live and send you a fun graphic to showcase on your own Instagram Story.

It is as simple as that!

The sooner I receive these the better as I only want to showcase one speaker a day leading up to the event.

The Prompts

Please create a series of 5 Instagram Stories, following the below prompts. There are templates for each BUT I recommend a mixture of videos and templates. That way the audience can see your beautiful face and start gaining the know, like and trust factor much quicker.

Please note, if you do decide to use the templates, do not change the branding or create your own. It is important that we keep the integrity and branding of the event. Thank you!

Speaker Takeover 01 _ Introduction
Speaker Takeover 02 _ Speaking On
Speaker Takeover 03 _ Workspace
Speaker Takeover 04 _ This or That
Speaker Takeover 05 _ Excited to Speak Because
  1. Introduction – Let the audience know your name, your business and a quick blurb about what you do!
  2. Introduce Your Presentation – Let the audience know what you are speaking about to get them excited!
  3. Behind the Scenes – Share your workspace!
  4. This or That – This is the only one that needs to be a template! I have provided a fun This or That to let the audience learn more about you outside of business! Simply use the provided template and circle your answers!
  5. Why You’re Excited to be a Speaker – Let the audience know why you are excited to be a speaker and that you can’t wait to see them there!

You can submit the Instagram Story Takeover by emailing me at hello@lindseyaleson.com.

ANSWERS TO YOUR

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! The summit itself is absolutely free. Attendees can sign up for their free ticket and watch the presentations as they are released each day. Each presentation will be available for attendees to watch for free for 24 hours. After the 24 hours, the only way to access the presentation is to upgrade to one of the VIP options.

For this summit, we have two paid offerings: the Business Booster Pass and the Business Accelerator Pass.

The Business Booster Pass will grant attendees lifetime access to all the presentations from the event. It will also include a private podcast as well as detailed notes.

The Business Accelerator Pass will include everything in the Business Booster Pass PLUS access to live hot seats, a live value ladder training provided by me, live panel sessions (planned but not finalized)a, PLUS a bonus a digital product bundle. The digital product bundle will include all the digital products provided by the amazing speakers.

There are several opportunities and tiers to upgrade.

Tripwire - Available for 15 minutes after signing up for the free ticket

  • Business Booster Pass: $47
  • Business Accelerator Pass: $77

Early Bird Pricing - Available before the summit starts

  • Business Booster Pass: $67
  • Business Accelerator Pass: $97

Regular Pricing - Available once the summit starts

  • Business Booster Pass: $97
  • Business Accelerator Pass: $127
No, just because someone signs up for the summit doesn’t mean they have consented to be emailed by all the speakers. However, you do have an opportunity to grow your list. This is where your freebie comes in. The link to opt-in to your freebie will be listed in several places from the website, to your speaker page, to the workbook, to the Facebook group and more.

You must submit your presentation to me by FRIDAY, AUGUST 5th. This is SUPER important because I need time to watch, create your presentation notes and edit your presentation. If by some chance you need a little extra time, please let me as soon as you know there is an issue.

Your presentation should be between 25-35 minutes. However, make sure it is no less than 20 minutes and no more than 45 minutes. We would much rather have a presentation on the shorter, than have fluff. Attendees will appreciate it as well.

Not at all! Each day during the summit, that day’s presentations will go live at 8 am PST. There is no set time for each presentation and there will be no chat. I have found that the attendees like the flexibility. What is encouraged though, is to be in the Facebook group the day of your presentation. Check in. engage with the attendees. Be there to answer questions if needed. Attend the Take Action Session at 2 pm PST that day (if you are available). The Facebook group will be the place for connection and engagement.

The minimum promotion efforts are sending out 1 email and posting 2 times on social media. But ideally you’ll promote as much as possible! The success of the event is a collective effort. We are going to do all we can to personally promote on our own channels as well as run Facebook ads, but each speaker needs to do their part as well!

Think about it this way. If only some speakers promote and others don’t, it really isn’t fair for the group. But if everyone promotes then our reach expands exponentially. Remember this is a group effort and when you promote the summit, you are supporting every speaker in the summit. #communityovercompetition

Promotion for the event is Monday, September 5th through Sunday, September 18th.

Promotional materials will be available by August 15th so you will have plenty of time to work ahead and get things scheduled if you would like.

Possibly! You have the opportunity to earn affiliate commission from each sale made through your affiliate link.

You will earn 40% commission on all Business Booster Pass and Business Accelerator Pass sales made through your affiliate link.

BUT if you contributed a digital product to the Business Accelerator Pass Bundle, then you will earn an additional 10% commission, making your commission 50% on all sales made through your link.

Since you are promoting the event anyways, might as well use your affiliate link and have the potential to earn extra income!

Yes! My favorite part of hosting summits is the connections I make. I get the opportunity to meet and talk with each of you and I want you to have that opportunity as well! That is why I have created a Speaker-Only Facebook group.

This will also be a great place to get updates on the event!

No worries! Please reach out to me directly at hello@lindseyaleson.com.

ALL ABOUT

Your Host

Lindsey Aleson Headshot

Hi, I'm Lindsey!

I am so stoked to be the host of the 2nd Annual Profitable Tech VA Summit. I usually run a joint summit with my biz bestie and biz partner, Jenny, but I also love hosting solo summits. And I am thrilled to have you along for the ride.

I built my first computer at just 11 years old (it was a birthday present from my grandpa). Soon after, I taught myself to code and quickly created my very own drag-and-drop doll website. Do you remember those? Yeah, well I was the only 11 year old I knew with her own website.

As I went through school, my interest fizzled a little because it didn’t seem like the online thing would turn into a career. (Oh how wrong was I?!?)

But then in 2010, I rediscovered blogging. And ever since then I have been involved in the online space! And throughout this time, I have been through a lot of ups and downs and a lot of comparison syndrome. I mean it is so easy to compare yourself and your business to everyone else’s highlight reels.

But things started to change once I decided to take matters into my own hands, do tactics that felt right to me and define success on my own terms. And that is why I created this event.

I want to teach fellow female entrepreneurs how to create a successful Tech VA business and inspire them to define success on their own terms.

So thank you so much for joining me, and let’s make this one UNFORGETTABLE event!
