#4: Affiliate Commissions
If you're featuring tutorials or demonstrations of software or other products people can buy on your virtual summit, why not sign up to be an affiliate partner for those companies and use your affiliate link when promoting them during the summit? You can earn affiliate commissions when your summit attendees buy or register for their free trials of the product.
Similarly, you can ask any of the guest speakers being featured on the summit if they have affiliate programs for the products, services or courses they are selling / promoting during your event as well.
#5: Existing Courses
If you have existing online courses that are available for purchase during the time of your virtual summit, let your attendees know. While you don't want to promote too many things at once, mentioning that you have courses for purchase when an applicable topic comes up in discussion during the summit is more than reasonable. Make sure your courses are easily able to be found on your website so that when summit attendees go to research and learn more about you they will see them.
#6: Coaching / Services
Individuals attending your summit may be interested in learning more through a service or VIP package that you have to offer. If someone reaches out to you proactively to learn more about your summit topic, they may be the right person to sign up for your coaching or VIP services. Keep in touch with those individuals, and find ways you can support them.sdfd
Though your virtual summit is being held online, it is at its core an event. Companies may wish to become sponsors of your event by financially supporting it in exchange for publicity, such as the presence of their logo on your home page or a mention during your interviews.
#8: Physical Products
Aside from perhaps paperback and hardcover books, infopreneurs don't often venture into the physical product space online, but a virtual summit can be the right outlet for it. If you have plans to brand your summit heavily in your niche, perhaps host it more than once, and really create a name for it, you might consider purchasing and selling items like t-shirts, pens, hats or other merchandise to help build brand awareness.
#9: New Product / Service
After your summit is complete, you will have a brand new email list of followers eager to learn more about your topic as well as consume the content you have to offer them. This may be the perfect time for you to leverage this warm email list to launch a new product or service to them.
In fact, many infopreneurs view their virtual summit as the list-building marketing technique they will use to grow an audience of interested people in a new product or service they are developing. They will specifically create a virtual summit on the topic most relevant to that new product or service.
Arguably, depending on how you do your bookkeeping, the launch of a new product or service technically falls outside of the revenue generated by the virtual summit itself, but if the reason that you are hosting your summit is to generate sales of your new product or service, it's a legitimate revenue stream.
