CALL FOR SPEAKERS
Our Call for Speakers for our first annual Digital Marketing Summit is now over.
If you are a digital marketer with something to share, we have a weekly podcast that might be a good fit, and a good way to connect with Rich Brooks. You can apply here.
You should also check out this year’s event by pre-registering now!
Thank you for your interest.
Are you an expert in digital marketing? SEO, Social Media, Content Creation? Or maybe you’re an expert in Conversion Rate Optimization or Analytics?
Do you work with your clients, businesses, or students to help them with their online visibility, engagement, or lead generation?
If so, we want you for the 1st Annual Agents of Change Digital Marketing Summit this coming April.
This Summit is for owners, marketers, and entrepreneurs who are looking to grow their business by leveraging the latest strategies, tactics, and tools to improve their online presence, drive more qualified traffic to their website, and convert that traffic into sales and business!
APPLY NOW TO BE A SPEAKER
Every business and brand is looking to leverage their digital presence to drive more business, but with the intense competition that comes with the web, that’s not always possible. Many great ideas, brands, and businesses are unseen in the social newsfeeds, never appear on page one of Google, and aren’t getting any positive ROI on their digital ad spend.
That’s why we’re putting together a top-tier list of digital marketing superstars to help them tap into the latest, most effective tactics that will get them the visibility and leads they are looking for.
So if you’re an SEO, a Social Media Expert, a Content Creator, or an expert in GA4, paid search, paid social, AI marketing, email marketing, website conversion, or anything that can help them succeed, this is the summit for you!
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
1 INDUSTRY LEADER
You’ll be positioned as a leader in this industry, alongside many of the other established and rising stars of digital marketing. You’ll be featured in all of our marketing and promotion of the event (which will be substantial!)
You’ll get to connect with the other experts at Virtual Networking Events that are just for the speakers themselves, making important connections and growing your network.
3 BOOST YOUR OUTREACH
If you have an offer, something to entice people to try you out, join your membership, trial your courses, or hire you outright, we’ll help you promote it and get it in front of the 1K+ expected attendees to this year’s event, greatly boosting your own outreach efforts in 2024.
4 MAKE MONEY
You’ll also have the opportunity of making a significant payday from the event. Although the basic conference is free, there are several upgrades that many of the participants can purchase, and when they signup through you, you’ll get 50% of all those sales! Depending on your reach, that could be hundreds or even thousands of dollars!

+ What is the Agents of Change Digital Marketing Summit?
It’s a free, virtual summit featuring 30 of the world’s top marketing experts, sharing their best secrets with owners, marketers, and entrepreneurs looking to generate more business online.
+ Why is it free?
We want to provide this information to anyone who wants it, who is looking for ways to increase their online visibility to grow their business.
+ How many people do you expect to register?
Based on our reach, the reach of our 30 speakers, our planned ad campaigns, and previous similar events, we’re conservatively predicting between 1.5K – 2.5K signups for the free version with 30% of those people upgrading to a paid ticket.
+ How do you (and I) make money?
We’ll be offering a few paid upgrades that we feel will encourage a good portion of the attendees to upgrade to a paid ticket. The free version only allows you to watch the videos while we’re streaming them; the paid version includes on-demand access for a full year, transcripts, notes, and more.
Paying attendees will also get access to special freebies and offers from our speakers (like you!) and sponsors that will make the cost of a ticket the best offer they get all year.
We will give affiliate codes to all of the speakers, including you. When anyone signs up for the event—even if they sign up for the free version—you’ll get credit. And when they upgrade to a paid version you’ll get 50% of the upgrade. No muss, no fuss.
+ What do I need to know about my session?
We will pre-record it together, and it should last 30 minutes. While I know that’s not a lot of time, we encourage you to share your best, most actionable tactics to make this event amazing, and to help you stand out and generate more business for yourself.
We won’t require your attendance during the “live” stream of your session, but it tends to increase engagement and sales of your product, service, or offering.
+ Who (or what) is The Agents of Change?
AOC has been around for over a decade, both as a live conference in Portland, Maine, as well as a weekly podcast interviewing many of today’s top digital marketing experts.
This coming October the conference will enter its 10th year of existence, and the podcast has over 500 episodes and climbing.
AOC is the brainchild of Rich Brooks, (that’s me!) who also founded flyte new media, a digital agency located in Portland, Maine, established way back in 1997! That’s over 26 years of digital marketing experience.
+ Why are you suddenly putting on a virtual summit?
While I love the in-person conference experience, I realize that not everyone can come to Portland, Maine, in October for a day (or two) of learning. Between the cost for travel, hotel, and tickets, plus the time off from work, it’s a lot to ask of many SMBs and their employees.
I also recognize that although we provide a free weekly podcast, not everyone learns best through just audio. Our goal, my mission, is to provide the best quality content for businesses (and non-profits) that are looking to grow and do good in the world.
I also love connecting with experts (which is a big reason why I put on the conference and host the podcast), and I’d love to add you to my network!
