Welcome "Go Digital on Etsy" Summit Speaker
Thank you for agreeing to share your Etsy wisdom and expertise with the Rebel Boss Community! On this page, you'll find relevant information to make this process an easy and exciting one!
Summit dates: November 1st - 4th, 2022
SPEAKER MATERIALS DUE ON SEPTEMBER 16, 2022
What is the "GO DIGITAL ON ETSY" Summit?
It's been a long time goal of mine to lean into that demand, and create a summit that focuses exclusively on Etsy and how creative women can take an idea and sell it digitally on Etsy. This summit is intended to help current shop owners add digital elements to their handmade shops and it's also intended to help people without any Etsy experience get started creating a shop and selling digital products.
We are Committed to Ensuring our Summit speaker lineup is diverse!
The Rebel Boss Summit brand acknowledges that summits are often whitewashed. There are many summits out there with all-white lineups. We also acknowledge that our past lineups have not been as diverse as they certainly should have been. We are committed to doing better and ensuring that we showcase people from all backgrounds, especially BIPOC. Our recent summit lineups had 40% of our speakers were non white individuals and/or BIPOC. We are excited to be part of a much needed change in our industry and continuing to do better.
Why You'll LOVE Participating
GROW YOUR EXPERTISE
Spending 15-25 minutes talking at a very popular summit will help you establish yourself as an expert in your niche.
BUILD BRAND AWARENESS
Speaking at a summit like this, to an audience of this size, will help you build brand awareness faster than you normally would in a 6 month - 12 month period of time. Think about it - you're on a virtual stage in front of a huge virtual audience. That's priceless!
Yes, it IS possible to make a significant chunk of change from participating in this summit. By promoting the All Access Pass, and setting up your own marketing funnel, you can take home a great paycheck just by speaking for 15-25 minutes! How cool is that?
GROW YOUR EMAIL LIST
Even though we don't share the attendee list with speakers, you have the opportunity to promote a lead magnet at the end of your presentation. Our past speakers have gotten hundreds of new leads from this approach, and they've made a great amount of money from their new, highly targeted subscribers who purchase things within their funnels.
nETWORK WITH OTHER SPEAKERS
Our speaker lineup is always stacked with incredible people who are reading and willing to network! Our past speakers have made new friends, landed podcast opportunities, and been asked to speak at other events as a result of their participation.
Past Speakers Got Insane Value out of Speaking at a Rebel Boss Summit Event!

500 new subscribers!
My subscribers grew by nearly 500! I also made over $500 from my tripwire!
250 new subscribers, and $170 from tripwire
Grew my list by over 250 people, with minimal unsbuscribers so far.
I've had a couple of people join courses/programs I've launched since that told me they initially found me through Rebel Boss Summit (so that's worth $100s to me).
And I made $170 from my tripwire.
Overall I was very pleased!
My email list grew by several hundred!
My email list grew by several hundred. I got quite a bit of new followers from people who reached out saying they really enjoyed my presentation. I earned a little money from commissions which was just a nice bonus. And I made some wonderful new connections who I'll get to collaborate with and have as podcast guests, and one of whom I may be working with as a new client soon. All in all, SO much value from being a speaker here, and hope to get to be a part of the event for the years to come!
Commissions were well worth my time!
Commissions were well worth my time - I generally like to earn $500 - $1000 on an event like this. My list grew and I had lots of people DM/comment and say they followed from the summit.

Have Questions? I have answers!
Is the summit free for attendees?
Yes! Attendees can sign up for free and watch the presentations as they launch. Each presentation will be available to attendees for 24 hours until they get locked down. If attendees want lifetime access to the presentations, they can purchase an All Access Pass.
What's the incentive to buy an upgrade?
All Access Passes will grant attendees lifetime access to every single interview and presentation. It will also unlock an exclusive coupon book and other bonuses. The "Elevate Etsy" bundle adds on a bundle of courses/tools/templates that will help shop owners elevate their sales success.
How much does an upgrade cost?
- $47/$97 before the summit begins (one time offer for 20 minutes)
- $77/147 Early Bird pricing before summit starts
- $97/197 after the summit starts
- Attendees will have a 20 minute window to upgrade for just $47 or $97 (depending on their upgrade of choice) immediately after grabbing a free ticket. This offer will expire after just 20 minutes.
How do I record my presentation?
There are several ways that you can record your presentation. Create a slide deck. Use a screen recording tool. You can record using Quicktime Player, Camtasia, OBS, loom, or use any software that records your screen.
How do I send you my presentation?
Upload your presentation somewhere (Google Drive, DropBox, Vimeo) and make sure that you've enabled downloads. Submit your presentation through the link in airtable.
When is my presentation due?
You must deliver your presentation to me by September 16th, 2022. Please be in touch beforehand if, for some reason, this is not possible for you.
How do I join my presentation chat room during my time slot?
I will email you a direct link to your presentation room a few days before the summit begins!
Will I be "Live" at all during the summit?
Your presentations are all pre-recorded, which means you can "show up" to the virtual summit in your pajamas and no one will know the difference! You will only be "live" during the summit if you've agreed to lead a Live Panel session!
Where is my speaker agreement?
If you don't have a copy of your speaker agreement, reach out to me via email ( eden at hello at rebelbosses dot com ) for access.
How long should my presentation be?
Your presentation should be 15-25 minutes long. The focus should be on quality over quantity.
How much do I have to promote?
We hope you'll promote it as much as possible! You'll get out of the summit what you put into it. The reason our last summit was a huge success was because each of the speakers did their part to promote it, which meant there was a huge audience in attendance (this benefits everyone!). It's a bummer for everyone if a speaker doesn't promote.
What should I use to create my presentation?
I recommend using whatever you're most comfortable with. I like to create my slide deck in Canva, but others prefer to use Keynote or Powerpoint or Google slides.
Is there an affiliate program?
Yes, I highly recommend that, as a speaker, you join the affiliate program. Since you're going to be promoting the event anyway, you might as well use an affiliate link when you're promoting! You will earn a 40% commission on All Access Passes referred through your affiliate link. Lots of our speakers earned several hundred dollars from promoting with their affiliate link! You can click here to join the affiliate program!
When is the promo period for the summit?
October 17th - November 4 - will be the "big promo period" for the summit. I recommend sending any emails, posting on social media and spreading the word to your audience during this time period.
Why You'll Benefit From Contributing a Paid Product to Our "Elevate Etsy" Bundle
When you contribute a paid product to our Elevate Etsy Bundle, you drastically increase the value. Imagine you contribute a $67 product. The All Access Pass ticket with speaker bonuses (the Elevate Etsy Bundle) is sold for $97. Your product by itself has now nearly justified the value of the ticket - and that's not including all of the other insane benefits of purchasing!
Adding in your paid product will make it insanely easy for you to promote the Summit and the Elevate Etsy Bundle. Your audience will see your product and they'll just know that it's a worthwhile investment.
Contributing your product also gets you extra exposure! Your contribution will be featured to all of our attendees (we usually have several thousand sign ups). This is great visibility for you!
Plus, the commission that you'll make on selling these Elevate Etsy Bundles will more than make up for your contribution.

Meet Your Host!
Quick success selling that online course lended itself to my next online course, which followed by a membership site. The entirety of my income now comes from digital product sales (workbooks, membership access and other one-off course access). I've developed several high performing (30% conversion rate funnels) that allow me to live life on my own terms and - the best part - now I have the distinct pleasure of teaching others how to do the same.
