Make $50k in a Weekend with a Suite Retreat

Whether it's your first event or your 100th!

What if you could host a small retreat with clients you love, deliver content you're passionate about, and bring in $25k, $50k, or more?

You’ve probably thought about offering an in-person or virtual “event” of some sort – maybe even hosted a few (or many) in the past…

But if you’re like many of our clients you’re wondering…

  • Is now the right time?  Are people willing to travel and show up at live events?
  • Can virtual possibly work as well as in person?
  • How can I stand out and get people’s attention with so many events happening right now?
  • Events are expensive… can I afford to take the financial risk?
  • What can I do to be sure people show up?

And you’re absolutely right to be wondering!!  

Things have shifted in the event space and companies who’ve successfully hosted events with 100-1,000 people attending live are struggling to fill their rooms.

But it’s not just because travel’s changed and more people are staying home.  

Or because the economy’s little “iffy” right now.

The real reason events aren’t “popping” like they used to for so many entrepreneurs and businesses is because people have wised up…

Multi-day, multi-speaker pitch fests?  We see them coming a mile away!

$97 (or free) tickets to “valuable” events… we know we’re just getting hard sold into $50k “mastermind” groups that may or may not even deliver on some of the wild promises made.

But that doesn’t mean events are dead.

 

Now is the Best Time to Host Your Own Event
But Only If You Do it Differently...

We’ve been quietly testing out shifts in a strategy that’s worked for as long as we’ve been hosting events (don’t do the math on my age, but I’ve been doing this for three decades).

It allows anyone to quickly, affordably and easily create an amazing event as long as:

  • You’re an expert – you’ve got valuable knowledge to share
  • You’ve got a community – even a small one, or access to one
  • You’ve got an offer – from $2k up (one on one coaching packages work, so do group programs or masterminds)

What you don’t need…

  • You don’t need a room packed full with 1,000 people – you don’t even need 50!
  • You don’t need to spend six months or a year planning a complicated, stressful, expensive event…
  • You don’t need to close dozens of sales to make a profit (you can be profitable before you even step foot on your “stage”)
And you can do it differently in person, or virtually!  Let me introduce you to the “Suite Retreat”…

If You're Looking for an "Event Solution" that Allows You To...

The Numbers

The Expenses

A “Suite Retreat” minimizes your out of pocket expenses so it’s low-risk:

  • Book a hotel suite or AirBnB for the weekend
  • Create attendee swag/gift packets
  • Print your handouts and resources
  • Bring one helper (can be a volunteer!)
  • Bring in Delicious Meals and Snacks

The Revenue

So many more opportunities than you might think!  Create multiple revenue streams with one event, including these and MANY more:

  • Attendee Ticket Sales
  • Sponsors/Affiliates
  • Next Step High-Ticket Offer
  • Guest Speaker with Complementary Offer

Bottom Line: Low Expenses, High Profits
And an Event Your Community Will Rave About!

Warning: Watch Out for These 12 HUGE Disasters!

We’ve been in the event space long enough to know… things go wrong.  

Sometimes unplanned, but sometimes from lack of planning! 

And we know, we’re not supposed to “give it away” free before you’re signed up, but we can’t help it.  

You’ve got to avoid these mistakes and we figure if we share them it’ll help you see how much we can really help you inside the course! 

So, make sure you’ve got a solid plan in place to avoid these:

Offer Disasters

  • Forgetting or skipping the offer – this happens more often that you’d think! If you try to pack too much in, don’t feel confident in your offer, or have disasters happen… it can throw you entirely off track.)
  • Unclear, confusing offers – don’t throw the kitchen sink at your attendees with too many choices or too much included, and make sure the value in your offer is super clear
  • Wrong offer for the room – your content flow has got to lead into your offer and be aligned for your audience, we can help make sure your offer is right for your room so it makes sense and converts

Attendee Disasters

  • Wrong people in the room – don’t fill your room with clients then offer what they’ve already invested in! Or fill a room with people who can’t afford or don’t want what you’re offering – get your marketing right with us so your offer works
  • Overwhelmed attendees – if you over-deliver content and attendees feel like they’ve got “homework”, they’ll wait to invest with you because they’ve got too much to do first!

    TIP: Structure your content so they get things done in the room and they’ll be excited to move forward instead of overwhelmed

Budget Disasters

  • Overspending on location – don’t blow your budget!  Let us show you how to find and negotiate great deals on spaces you’ll love.  
  • Adding too many bonuses – if you go crazy on the gifts and goodies you can quickly lose money, instead use our experience and connections for smart, elegant options.   
  • Wrong location – are you close enough to a major airport and food options?  We’ve got a whole checklist to help make sure your location doesn’t cost you in unexpected expenses and attendee frustration

Strategic Disasters

  • Missing the strategy – your events should power your overall marketing and business growth plan, they’re not a standalone piece!  
  • Missing monetization opportunities – you don’t have to over-sell or over-pitch to add additional revenue!  But don’t miss out on the simple ways to monetize that your attendees will thank you for!
  • Not thinking beyond the event – you’ve got capture the right video clips and photos, testimonials, and know how to fill your next event before you’ve wrapped this one up!

The BIGGEST Event Mistake?

Not hosting one!  Yes, we said it.  Because it’s true.

With ALL the benefits an event can create for your business…
you can’t afford to miss out on hosting your own events!!

How much of this is done for me? What if I want more support?

This is a “done with you” program.  We’ll provide the strategy, templates and support for you to customize and make your own.

If you’d like to discuss having Blu Diamond support you with implementation, just reach out to lindacainoffice@gmail.com and we’ll be happy to schedule a time to chat!

Will recordings be available?

Yes, we’ll be recording the live workshop and support sessions so you’ll have access to them on demand after they’re live.

What if I can't make it live or the dates don't work for me?

You’ve got plenty of time to rearrange your schedule!!  We promise, this will be 100% worth your time.

But, if you’ve got commitments you just can’t shift, don’t panic, we’ve got you.

All sessions will be recorded, and you’ll have access to a private members-only Slack channel where you can post your questions for Linda and team to answer in Slack or live on the weekly Office Hours sessions.

What if I've never hosted an event before? Is this a good fit for me?

Absolutely!  This is the simplest, fastest way to make your first event a SUCCESS.

Let us help you skip the painful, expensive learning curve and knock your first event (and all the future ones) out of the park.  🙂

We’ll be covering all you need to host your first event – and available for any questions you’ve got.

I've already hosted events, would this be helpful for me still?

Yes and here’s why…

Even experienced, profitable event hosts make some of the common mistakes we’ll help you avoid for your next event!

If you want your next event to be simpler and more profitable, this course is for you.

Do I need a big team or staff to make this work? I'm a one-person show...

Great!  And nope, no team needed to pull this off.

We’ll show you how to create a successful “suite retreat” with just you and one helper.

You can draft your teenager (we recommend using a financial bribe for that), a friend, or volunteer to support you.

I'm a life coach, business consultant, fitness trainer, or clown car designer. Will this work for me?

If you’re an expert with valuable knowledge to share, this event style can work for you!

We’ve supported clients across a crazy diverse range of niches using this model.

Will you be hosting this workshop again? When's my next chance?

We don’t have any plans to offer this again.  Our super busy season starts this fall and we just won’t have time to juggle presenting this program along with supporting our amazing clients’ events.

If we do host this again, it’ll be at a higher investment, so don’t miss your chance!

And honestly… the sooner you join us, the sooner you’ll be adding profitable retreat style events your clients love, to your mix in business.

Is there a guarantee? What if this doesn't work for me?

We both know results require more than just having the information – you’ve gotta put the information into action!

But here’s what we can promise you:

We’ll deliver the information and support you need to create and host your own Suite Retreat.

And if for some reason (life got crazy or aliens abducted your cat) you feel like it’s just not a fit for you, you can apply your investment in this course toward 1:1 support or implementation services from Linda and the team.

I've got another question...

Awesome!  If we didn’t answer it here, just send an email to lindacainoffice@gmail.com and we’ll be happy to give you a straight answer.
