Hello!

If you have a tech company or a tech class in the indie author space, you can reach even more indie and self published authors by becoming a sponsor in the Author Tech Summit.

Do you need to show authors how easy your tool or service really is?

You see the comments all the time in places indie authors gather: “I tried ___ but it was too hard.” Now, granted, some give up too easily, but what if you could sit down with them and SHOW them how easy it really could be?

If you’ve been in business any length of time at all, you know the real secret to success isn’t just finding warm bodies with cash; it’s finding the RIGHT clients and customers who are perfect for your product or service. They’re the ones who get the most out of what you offer and become raving fans.

Are you frustrated with less-than-ideal clients?

Are you wanting to increase your positioning as leader in the exploding self-publishing industry?

Do you remember the commercials with the tagline, “When EF Hutton talks, people listen”? You may be too young, but google them. THAT’S what you want – when you weigh in on an issue, you want people to stop and pay attention, because they know what they’re hearing is going to be good – and most likely gold.

Didn't you say free?

Absolutely! Did you notice above that the Silver and Gold sponsorship levels have affiliate commission percentages? They do… This is how it will work.

If you refer 52 paid attendees, your Silver Sponsorship is free.
If you refer 65 paid attendees, your Gold Sponsorship is free.

Here’s the math:

  1. You use your affiliate link to invite people to the summit.
  2. The participant can watch during the event for free. But, to access the recordings later, they’ll pay $97. Plus, we’ll upsell them an IAM subscription. 
  3. 10% of $97 is $9.70, 20% of $97 is $19.40 – to simplify the math, let’s just use those numbers, but remember that’s the minimum. We hope they’ll also subscribe to IAM.

If you send people with your affiliate link to the event and they purchase just the recordings, you’ll only need 52 people to more than pay for your Silver Sponsorship – and only 65 people to pay for your Gold Sponsorship.

  • 52 x $9.70 = $504.40, cash positive of $4.40 for a Silver Sponsorship.
  • 65 x $19.40 = $1261, cash positive of $11 for a Gold Sponsorship.

If they purchase a subscription to IAM or if you get more than that number of people to upgrade, you’ll walk away with all of the awesome benefits of being a sponsor AND even more cash in pocket. If your people purchase subscriptions within 30 days, you will be paid by IAM every time they renew for months and years to come. Perfect passive income.
