Ok, you know that creating teleseminars and webinars is one of the best ways to grow your list.  Many of you have asked me to lay out for you *exactly* how I create and get people to sign up for the call.

Your wish is my command.  Here are the basic steps my team does to set up and promote a teleseminar.

1.  Find A Guest 

Although I do teleseminar’s by myself. I find the energy and marketing potential is better when I am interviewed or when I interview someone else.  Once we decide on a date and time,  I ask them for a picture, a bio, an affiliate link to the product or page they are promoting.  If I am being interviewed, I send them my speaker packet which is a Word document with all the information ready to go.   I take their affiliate link and create an “easy to read” on the phone redirect in WordPress (example: http://michelerecommends.com/person).  If I am being interviewed, I set the person up as an affiliate in InfusionSoft.

2. Set up Bridge Line

I set up the call in Instant Teleseminar.  The most important thing here is to set the call for more time than I actually need.

3. Create the Landing Page

I use OptmizePress to set up my landing pages using the photo and bullets provided to me by the person I’m interviewing. I also create a campaign in Infusionsoft with 4 e-mails.  People get the first reminder when they sign up.  They get reminders the day before the call and the day of and are e-mailed the recording the next day.  The people are tagged with the event so if I need to reach them (or if I’m selling a product relating to that subject matter later), it is easy to grab them.  It is all automated – so once I’ve set it up in Infusionsoft. I don’t need to worry about it any more.

4.  Promote the event on Social Media

At a minimum, I create an event on Facebook for each event.  I also send personal invitations on LinkedIn, feature the event in my newsletter and possibly even post on Pinterest.  I tweet and post to Facebook to increase attendance.  For larger events, I will send out a solo e-mail or two.  Infusionsoft allows me to add a tag to people who view the web page and don’t sign up – so I can follow up with them later.

5.  Hold the Event

6.  Evergreen the Event

Since I’ve gone through the hard work of creating and publicizing an event – I want it to keep working for me.  After the event, I change the campaign in Infusionsoft and the website  so that people get the recording immediately after signing up.  I am amazed at how many people keep signing up for teleseminars even when they aren’t live.

As you can see, Infusionsoft is a huge part of my marketing system.  I could not accomplish what I have without the smart marketing automation that it provides.
