ABOUT MARIE GRACE

Marie Grace had been podcasting for a while, but her list size and income weren’t keeping pace with the effort she was investing in her business. As a believer in joint ventures, she chose the summit module as a way to grow quickly. 

HOW SHE USED VIRTUAL SUMMIT MASTERY

Marie Grace is a non-native English speaker, and she had limited connections — and no product. But by bringing on stragic partners, she was able to get lots of attention, and offer an affiliate product as a backend to the summit. 

RESULTS

The JV Success Summit brought in 4,222 subscribers, and generated $30K in all-access pass sales. She also earned affiliate commissions that doubled her total revenue to $66K from the event… and is planning summits #2, #3, AND #4

“With VSM, my first summit added more than 4,000 people to my email list and $66K to my bank account! Not too shabby for a first timer eh?!!” – Marie Grace Berg

Who are you and what’s your business (after VSM)?

My name is Marie Grace Berg, host of two podcast shows and now a summit host. I help women achieve freedom by building an online business following  their true passion.

What were you struggling with the most before you joined Navid’s VSM? What did your business and life look like?

My list was not growing fast enough using podcasting and I needed a faster alternative besides paid advertising. Hosting a summit was the way to go.

Why did you want to host a summit and why was it the best way for you?

I had been podcasting for a couple of years and felt wasn’t getting enough traction I wanted. Then I heard someone who hosted a summit and built a sizable list in just a short time so I thought, this is what I needed to do. And I was right. Best decision ever!

Why did you join VSM (and not other courses)? What was your thought when you first found out about VSM? Did you do any research before you purchased?

I’ve been following Navid for awhile and seeing him succeed in what he teaches instantly made me trust him as a credible expert.

What are some specific strategies, tactics or pieces of advice you learned in VSM that helped you create a successful (and profitable) virtual summit?

Having the summit planner in hand was extremely useful. All I needed was to check off what I’ve completed. It also helped me made sure that I didn’t miss a thing. This alone was worth the investment!

What specific results (email subscribers, revenue from all access pass, upsells, affiliate promos etc.) did you get by implementing what you learned in VSM? The more specific you can be here the better!

I added 4,222 to my subscriber base, made $31,000 from summit sales and another $35,000 from an affiliate product I promoted right after the summit. That´s a total of $66,000 in such a short time. That was more than what I´ve made online over the last two years combined! So I´m pretty stoked!

From start to finish, how long did it take you to put it together? And was it worth the time you spent?

I like to work under pressure (probably I got the attitude from working as an ER nurse for a long time) so from the time I started with  the idea to the time the actual summit was open to the public (when promo started) was exactly 6weeks. Navid recommends 90-days or more, so mine was exceptional but that’s because I knew my market already.

What was the cost of putting together your summit?

I had a VA who helped me with most of the stuff, graphics, tech/admin, content. But because of time constraint, I did use some help from a copywriter (costs approximately $3500). Not really needed if you just model the templates inside VSM.

Did you face any big challenges in your journey to create, promote and launch your summit? How did VSM and the community help you overcome them?

Nothing big for me. Luckily, I’m big on outsourcing tasks I’m not good at like graphics, tech stuff, admin stuff, copy. Luckily, I’ve a tech VA who was able to do most of these.

If I needed to figure out something, I just post it inside the community and almost instantly I get answers. People there are very helpful and because a lot have already launched a summit, they can answer questions you have if you’re just starting out. Big bonus!

How you did you feel when you made your first sale from the summit?

It was an incredible feeling getting sales very quickly and almost everyday before, during and long after the summit. In fact, it continues to generate income for me till today and it has been over a month since it launched.

How has hosting this virtual summit changed your business and life?

Hosting a virtual summit completely changed the trajectory of my online business. I now see it as the fastest way to generate leads and sales in such a short time without even being an expert because you’re leveraging other people’s expertise, nor having a product of your own because you can promote other people´s products and earn commission sales.

Were there any surprises that resulted from hosting your virtual summit that you didn’t expect at first?

There were a lot of moving parts or pieces of the puzzle that you need to put together. Luckily, I had the structure, support and accountability to pull it through inside the VSM community.

What are you most excited about for your business moving forward?

I’m excited to continue growing my subscriber base to the 10K, 20K, 50K and above range and play with the big leagues big time.

Anything else you’d like to add? 

If you want to grow you business superfast, nothing beats hosting an online summit. And if you want to learn how to host and launch a successful summit, VSM is your roadmap!

As an active member of the Virtual Summit Mastery program and community, what would you say to someone who’s thinking about joining VSM?

If you’re thinking of hosting and launching a successful online summit, VSM is the way to go. The structure, support and accountability inside the VSM community is unmatched and believe me, I’ve been to so many courses/programs/coaching group, spent thousands of my own money and gotten mediocre results. With VSM, first summit added more than 4,000 to my list and $66K to my bank account! Not too shabby for a first timer eh?!!

What’s the BEST part of VSM in your opinion and why?

VSM has everything you need and more. Community support is unmatched and Navid is superb. He walks the talks and has vested interests in seeing his students succeed. I’m a testament to it!
