Here’s how the event works:

  • The Book It Summit is a public event that’s completely free to attend. Because we’re not charging for tickets, we have a limited marketing budget and are looking for partners to share their content and promote the event to their tribe.
  • The event consists of three days of sessions from our partners in Zoom meeting mode.
  • Partners can provide either a live or pre-recorded presentation on a topic that will benefit our audience of business owners and professionals seeking to grow their business by publishing a book.
  • We have space for eighteen 30 minute Speaker sessions (6 per day) - interview or presentation style - at no cost for you. You can offer a free gift to the audience.  Any free gift needs to be offered with a SkillBites affiliate link.
  • We also have space for nine Sponsors (3 per day).  The fee for a Sponsorship is $500.  Sponsors will get top billing on the Summit registration page, greater promotion, a 50 minute keynote speaking slot, their choice of the time slot for their interview or presentation, the opportunity to do a sales pitch to a paid program during their talk and the opportunity to include a gift in the VIP package.  Sponsors need to provide us with an affiliate link to their free and paid offers, and we'll agree on the commission depending on the paid offer.  If interested, please contact Judy (judy@skillbites.net) for more details.    

 To ensure we’re providing as much value as possible, we’re requesting the following from our partners:

  • Please ensure your topic is relevant to the audience and the theme of the event. If you have content that is not relevant to business owners and professionals seeking to publish a business book, please ensure you modify it so that it’s directly relevant.
  • So that we can reach as many people as possible, we are asking all speakers to promote the event to their email and social media followers at least three times each. We’ll provide you with graphics, copy, and a personalized link. Ideal promotional times are:
    • A week before the event starts
    • 2 days before the event starts
    • The day before your talk, promoting your talk to your list
  • Unless you are a sponsor of the summit, please do not promote any paid offers or affiliate links to other products or services.
  • Speakers have a $97 refundable deposit to ensure that all speakers meet the promotional and other requirements, as detailed in the Speaker Agreement, which can be reviewed at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-8Sq8tC4u439jEe9ZYUnwEAphIU-dPvW/view?usp=sharing.


Monetization opportunities

During the event, we’ll be prompting the audience to purchase one or two levels of VIP pass to the event, giving lifetime access to the recordings from the event, as well as access to some VIP gifts.

You can earn from promoting the summit, both through VIP affiliate commission as well as purchases of SkillBites’ products and services.

  • You get 50% affiliate commission on VIP ticket sales (est. $25-$50 commission per sale);
  • You’ll earn a 40% commission on the purchase of SkillBites’ digital courses and a 10% affiliate commission on the purchase of any SkillBites services for 2 months following the summit, from those who sign up using your link (est. $250-$400 commission per sale).

As mentioned above, Sponsors have the opportunity to pitch a paid event or program during their talk and to include a gift in the VIP packages.  If interested, please contact Judy (judy@skillbites.net) for more details.

The Greatest Decision of All: What Publishing Option is Right for Your Book?
Everett O'Keefe Founder and CEO, Ignite Press

You have worked hard to craft your book. You have rewritten, refined, and retooled your book to make it as strong as possible. But what now? How should you publish your book?

This is the most important question of all. 

No matter how wonderful your book may be, your choice of publishing method will determine the ultimate trajectory and success of your book. The best method for you will depend greatly on what you want your book to accomplish for you.

  • Do you measure success by the royalties you make, the new clients you acquire, or the number of minds you may change?
  • Is a professional product more important to you than creative control?
  • Is it more important that you see your books in bookstores or that you have flexibility over how you sell (or give away) your books?
  • Is it more profitable for you to promote your book or instead to leverage your book in your brand?

These are important questions, and the answers will determine which best publishing method is best for you!

Join publisher and Wall Street Journal and international #1 bestselling author Everett O’Keefe as he addresses the many benefits and pitfalls of traditional, self-, and hybrid publishing. 

In addition to writing his own books, Everett has helped over 100 authors become bestselling authors. 

His experience and perspective will provide you with the clarity you need to see your book published!

“Have Computer Will Travel: How To Hire And Work With A Ghostwriter”
Henry DeVries CEO, Indie Books International

You can share something in common with Bill Gates, Jack Welch, Ray Kroc, Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump. All have used ghostwriters.

Getting published is an important variable in the marketing success quotient. Don’t let the excuse that you’re not a good writer prevent you from earning a byline.

What is essential and can never be farmed out, however, is your ability to present quality information and ideas. Your material should spark an “ah ha” in your readers and ignite them to reach greater heights. If you can prompt someone else to succeed, then you will have too.

If writing for you is, as a late New York Times sportswriter put it, “easy . . . you just sit down at a typewriter and open a vein,” then the tourniquet for you may be a ghostwriter or collaborator. (If you are a millennial, a typewriter is a device that authors once used to write before the personal computer. It was a big upgrade over the pen.)

 

There is a plethora of professional writers who are eager to find good ghostwriting assignments. Finding them just takes understanding of how such writers get their work.

A good place to start is with a professional writers’ association in your community. The library, bookstores, university English or journalism departments or your local paper may know of the writers’ organizations in your town. If not, chances are a local public relations, marketing or advertising agency may know.

Writers don’t come cheap. You may be lucky to find a good, hungry writer who is trying to break into magazines or book publishing who is willing to work on the come. But, typically, you’ll get to work that way only once with that author. Any writer who earns his or her living writing soon discovers that while he or she is writing for nothing, you, the expert, are earning a living in your field. You have an income and a book. The writer has only a byline. Or a thank you as your “editor” in the acknowledgments.

The 3 Keys to Writing a GREAT Book You Can Be Proud Of
Weston Lyon Founder of Plug & Play Publishing

Without exception, every single author-in-the-making I've ever personally helped write a book is afraid of ONE thing...

Writing a "bad" book!

In other words, they were afraid of writing a subpar or inferior book that makes them look bad to their readers.

It's understandable. After all, if you write a "bad" book, then your readers may see you as unprofessional and you'll lose your credibility with them. Or they may see you as a "fraud" - not the expert they thought you were.

In addition, if you write a book that bores your reader or isn't well-written, then your reader will either put your book down and forget about you. Or worse, your readers will tell everyone about you and your shoddy, second-rate book. (Remember, bad news travels faster than good news.)

So while it's important that you get your book done and into your prospects' hands, it's even more critical that you focus on writing a GREAT book!

A book so good that your readers WILL see you as the expert and authority you are.

A book so good that your readers WILL tell everyone they know and your message will spread like wildfire.

And a book so good that your readers WILL desperately want to take the next step with you and your business.

So that's what we're going to talk about in this presentation. The keys to writing a GREAT book! A book you can be proud of and a book you're eager to get into other peoples' hands.

More specifically, we'll explore...

  • The 3 Key Fundamentals YOU MUST FOLLOW in order to write a GREAT book!
  • The #1 Mistake ALL first-time (and even veteran) authors make that sabotages their success!
  • 5 Easy Tips that will make YOUR Book UNFORGETTABLE and SHARE-WORTHY!

So, are you ready to write a book you can be proud of?

If so, then JOIN ME on The Book It Summit on Wednesday, March 23rd!

I'll see you there!

Dedicated to your success as an authority!
