    Grow Your Email List By 500-2000+ Leads In 1 Week With A Signature Summit

    Grow Your Email List By 500-2000+ Leads In 1 Week With A Signature Summit

    “Nothing brings in quality leads faster than a summit” >> that’s the thesis this week’s guest Marisa Corcoran will be defending in today’s case study (and we have a feeling we’ll all agree by the end of it). We thought thesis was a fitting word for a Harvard grad, just one of many impressive things about Marisa’s background. This former actor turned entrepreneur’s magic lies in creating intentional icons, whether through supporting creatives and coaches to craft their uncopyable message inside The Copy Confidence Society, or helping business owners create their own stage with The Signature Summit System to grow their community and build rockstar relationships. In today’s case study, Marisa takes us behind the process of hosting six seasons and counting of her own signature summit, The Copy Chat, which has grown her email list by 15,000+ opt-ins, generated more than $1M in revenue in her business, and raised more than $85K for charity.

    Marisa’s confident you can do the same and grow your email list by 500-2000 leads in one week with this strategy, so here’s her tell-all to help you host your own virtual summit.

    If you’re tired of being the only person in your business who is thinking about marketing & how to make money, you might need a rainmaker. As in, someone in your business who makes it rain money FOR you. Meet my industry-revolutionizing friend Veronica Romney, a Dream Team Architect who helps online entrepreneurs build their dream teams and train their rainmaking marketing leaders. With more than 15 years in the online marketing world, she’s a former Speaker and Trainer for Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi and the former Chief of Staff of mega-brand BossBabe. 

    In today’s case study, we’ll dissect how Veronica’s unique “open house strategy” as a top of funnel opt-in is consistently generating a 25% conversion from viewer to applicant for her program Rainmaker Residency, a multiple 5 figure investment for her clients. Veronica’s open house is not exactly a workshop, masterclass, or webinar, and it’s beating the average industry conversion rates for high ticket program applications by a longshot. Plus, we’ll get Veronica’s hot takes on making smart marketing hires for your business. Let’s get into it.

Vicki Kunkel, Episode #83

I woke up early this morning to have a quiet moment before the kids got up to listen to this episode while I worked. Well, my kitten kept jumping on my keyboard wanting attention and my daughter woke because she was scared. I was forced to lay down and slow down. I grabbed my headphones and listened to the rest of the insightful podcast snuggled next to my daughter with my sweet kitten purring next to me. This truly was a better way to hear your thoughtful questions and Vicki Kunkel’s intriguing answers. Thank you so much, Ellen!
