Welcome to the Virtual Summit MarketPlace, a curated list of the tech and tools I strongly recommend for each step of hosting your own virtual summit. I have tested every recommendation on this page. I have used them at one time or another in my various business ventures.
Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Yes, there are other options. Use what is best for you and the purpose of your summit.
Another option for hosting your virtual summit is a self-hosted WordPress website. All my websites and the sites I’ve built for others are hosted on SiteGround. (And yes, I’ve had others before). Their customer service is top-notch. My website has never been down. Plus adding WordPress, and emails addresses are at no additional cost.
If you’ve signed in to any Google product before (like Gmail, Maps, or YouTube), you already have a Google Account. This gives you access to Google Drive and apps such as Docs, Sheets and Slides which is comparable to Microsoft Word. I use these apps multiple times a day. I COULD NOT run my business without it. Best part…it’s free.
