The Fifth Annual Summit Is Happening January 22-26, 2024
About the Blogger Breakthrough Summit
The Blogger Breakthrough Summit is an online event designed to help bloggers spend less time blogging while seeing bigger results.
What makes the Blogger Breakthrough Summit stand out from other similar events, is that we break out the sessions by level of blogger, so some sessions are geared toward beginners, and others towards intermediate or advanced bloggers.
Because of this, we can work together to figure out which target audience would best benefit you and your business.

Benefits of Sponsoring
It’s easy for you! You’re putting your product/service directly in front of your target audience, we’ve done the hard work to bring them in one place for you.
Money well spent! You could run ads, but that would probably cost more. This audience is looking for guidance in choosing the right tools, courses, and services. We’re telling them to choose you.
Highlight your offerings! Our audience needs what you have to offer, do them the service of making it easy to find and give us the opportunity to make the summit even better, so they continue to get tons of value.
The live panels were new in 2023 and a big hit! During the week of the Summit, there will be live panels taking place at 10:30 am PST on days 1-4. They will cover the following topics:
- Day 1: Running a Blog as a Business
- Day 2: Blogging and AI
- Day 3: Marketing
- Day 4: Blogging Income Diversification
Both the Gold and Silver Sponsors will receive an increased commission. For the Speaker Bonus Bundle, this will be a set 60%.
For the Blogger Breakthrough Summit Membership, Gold and Silver Sponsors will receive a 60% commission on the initial purchase, and a 30% recurring commission for however long the customer remains an active member of the membership.
The SWAG Bag
The SWAG Bag is free and accessible to all summit attendees. The purpose of the SWAG Bag is to provide resources that will help support attendees to focus on the summit when it is live. It includes:
- Round Up blog post generator
- Activity book for kids
- Free Notebook with Speaker and CTA Info
For 2024, I plan to also open the SWAG Bag up for contributions from others (speakers can absolutely contribute, but contributors are not required to be speakers.)
Requirements for SWAG Bag Contributions:
- Attendees must be able to access the contribution for free
- The Contribution must be something that will help to support attendees during the event. (examples: templates, automation solutions, meal plans, etc.)
The Summit Paid Offerings
While the Summit is free to attend while it is live, there are upgrades that will be available, in the past I’ve offered an All Access Pass, but in 2024 will be offering a combination of the Blogger Breakthrough Summit Membership and the Speaker Bonus Bundle.
The Offer Funnel:
After someone registers they will be presented with an offer to join the Blogger Breakthrough Summit Membership on a monthly basis for just $9/month.
If they take that offer they will then be offered an upsell to the annual plan ($108/year) of the membership, which will include as a bonus the Speaker Bonus Bundle.
If they don’t join the membership at either level they will be presented with a one time offer of the Speaker Bonus Bundle as a standalone product at a discounted (and to be determined) price.
Please note, that based on A/B testing the order of offerings is subject to change.
Both the Speaker Bonus Bundle and Blogger Breakthrough Summit Membership will be featured and available to purchase throughout the summit.
