our 202​1 ​Results ​Made this event, ​a best-in-Class Success Story

​These are just some of the numbers from our 2021 summit last July, and when compared to our peers, we exceeded all our expectations:

​2021 Attendees:   ​1,515

​​With ​​5 weeks of only social media marketing on LinkedIn and no money spent on ad spend, we generated just over 1,500 people signing up to attend our Free Virtual Lean Summit.  This year we are planning to triple the time we advertise and ​purchase targeted ads to increase our audience size to a goal of 5,000.

​Attendees were from:   ​85 Countries

​We had a very diverse and engaged audience that participated throughout the world.  ​People ​from 39 of those countries purchased our All-Access Pass.

​Email Open Rate:   ​44.4% Average ​Rate

​​According to our email list service provider, the average open rate in our industry is only 32.8% from our peer’s results.  This is a very highly-engaged audience​.

Click-Through Rate:   12.3% Average Rate

​When bench marked against our peer’s 4.8% Click-Through Rate, it is clear to see that our audience was engaged in learning about our ​sales offer and following the links highlighting our speaker’s ​businesses.

​Conversion Rate:   1​5.​2% Average Rate

​Our audience trusts us.  Industry average for a conversion rate is 5.4%, we nearly tripled the amount of people who were willing to purchase from us compared to other summits.  The reason is because our audience is invested in improvements and willing to spend money to improve.  This is a prime market for sponsors who offer products and services that can help our audience improve.

​​Percent of Audience ​That ​​Were Managers:   ​83.7%

​​Because of our social media targeted marketing campaign, we attracted a high number of managers and above.  C-Suite and Founders made up 15.6% of the audience, and senior executives and director level positions made up 17.7% of the audience. The decision makers are in the room. T​​​​​​his is a warm audience.

our ​Sponsorship Packages are ​Customized to Your Needs​So that Your Marketing Dollars Give You the ​ROI You Demand

​Every Sponsor has different expectations about what they want to achieve.  Being a Lean professional I want to make sure that I understand what those expectations are, so that we can provide you with the package that fits your objectives.  

Those objectives could be:

  • ​Brand awareness
  • Lead generation
  • ​Product showcasing
  • Standing out from the competition
  • Extending ​your reach
  • Driving more sales
  • ​or perhaps something else all together…

​Whatever you are looking to gain from this sponsorship, I can help you to customize a Sponsorship package that makes sense for you.Whether your budget is $1,000 or $​2​5,000 – this is the right summit to sponsor, and a very warm audience to share your solutions with.

Set up a Zoom call with me to discuss your objectives and we can see if you are a right fit for this audience.

The Most Useful & Enjoyable Conference of 2021

Over the course of the last several months I attended (virtually) several operational and process excellence events organized by big corporations and small firms. VLS organized by Jared definitely stood out among them. The speakers were carefully selected and represented a wide variety of industries, geographies, cultures and opinions. The agenda was packed, the content was superb and there was something for everyone. I came with very modest expectations, but this event was the most useful and enjoyable conference of 2021. Thanks, Jared! Enjoying my All Access pass and looking forward to the 2022 edition.

Just Epical!

The VLS is (as my daughter would call it) just epical!

Thank you for spending what must have been days and days organising it and convincing the speakers to give up their time as well as yours. And for you to throw it open as a free event is remarkable. I for one am hugely grateful to you for organising it – and we are only halfway through!
