Telesummits Made Easy

Telesummits are virtual seminars that last several days, usually with 12 or more speakers. Anyone who has planned one can tell you that it’s not an easy task. Not only do you have to plan it, but you have to organize and launch it and then execute it. The level of expertise that goes into these stages can make or break your successes. You should aim to establish yourself as an expert in your field and pulling off a successful telesummit will do that.

Mission Statement

This is your starting point. What is your theme? It will need to attract speakers and attendee’s, so you need to evaluate what information your audience is looking for and pair that with your intended speakers expertise.

Planning the Telesummit

It’s all about the details. When will you hold it? Which speakers do you invite and how many? Is it interview-style, a lecture or conversational? What technology are you using? Will it be live? Will recordings be available? There are so many points of consideration, you really need to look at it from every angle.

Recruiting Your Experts

Start with a list of speakers who are educated and experienced in your theme. Give them all of the planned information so they can make the decision as to if they will participate or not and what their conditions are. Not everyone will accept your invitation, so make sure you contact a large number of prospective speakers.


This is an important step. If It’s not properly promoted, all of your hard work goes down the drain because nobody will show up. Don’t ask your speakers to promote it, but make things readily available and easy to share if they feel so inclined. Use email campaigns, social media and guest post on a related blog.

In Conclusion

You’ll want to find information about how successful your telesummit was. It’s a good idea to send a survey out to the attendees. Offer something, like a recording or a transcript, to increase likelihood of participation. Make sure you thank the speakers in writing and include any positive feedback you’ve received.

Get Help!

There are a lot of technical and logistical strategies that can determine the telesummit’s success. Determining everyone’s schedule, picking the right dates that will get you the most participation and knowing how to market your telesummit are important aspects in planning. Get help. Hire a virtual assistant. A virtual assistant can help with ALL of it and guarantee their work with 99% accuracy.
