Promotional Details

In order for this event to be a success for everyone, speakers are required to send at least one dedicated email to their full email list promoting the event. If we are offering a paid upgrade package for your summit, you'll receive a 50% commission on sales of those upgrade packages to people you refer. (Some of our more philanthropic summits, such as Summer of Peace and The Global Indigenous Summit are always free — as we can't recoup any of our costs with an upgrade package for these summits, there's not a profit to share with you. We do still require all summit speakers to mail.) Additional benefits may be available — such as co-sponsor listing — if you agree to an additional dedicated send.

The date of your dedicated solo email promoting the event to your network. (Please refer to your original speaker invitation for the promotional window. If you can't find it, leave this blank and our Partner Management Team will be in touch to assist you.)
(for internal tracking and optimization purposes only)

If your list is less than 20,000 and you would be willing to do a second mailing about the summit, please check here. (This is requested, but not required, except for Summer of Peace):

If YES, please provide the email that you signed up with in our Referral Partner system. This is critical in order to track your promotional efforts and to ensure you receive any affiliate commissions that may come from them.
If NO, please take a moment to visit http://partners.theshiftnetwork.com/summit-join and sign-up as a Shift Network Referral Partner affiliate, and then fill-in the email you signed up with in the field above. This is required in order track your promotional efforts and to ensure you receive any affiliate commissions that may come from them. Otherwise, our team will need to create an account for you in order to track referral commissions from your promotional efforts.

When you sign-up please be sure to provide the email address where you would like to receive your promotional materials and resources. Once you sign-up, when the promotional resources are ready you will receive an email from MaryKay Morgan that will provide you with credentials to login to a special site where you can access all of promotional materials for your dedicated email send.
Section 2 (requested)

Phone Choice for Your Session

We are grateful that technology allows us to do our work from virtually anywhere. However, convenience sometimes comes at the cost of quality. In order for your session to sound good – and keep people listening – high quality sound is very important. We ask that for your session(s) you call in from a corded land line, and be mindful to minimize background noises and not use a headset. Cordless phones, cell phones, VOIP, headsets, and speaker phones aren’t good options and affect the sound quality of both your live session and the recording. If one of these is your only option, please make sure you call in a few extra minutes early so we can do our best to make adjustments on the backend.
