Quick tips for a seamless Litmus Live speaker submission

Want to throw your hat in the ring to be a presenter at Litmus Live 2023? We can’t wait to hear your ideas and submissions!

Tip 1: Choose a topic that’s focused, actionable—and not a sales pitch.

Litmus Live is an inclusive learning space for speakers and attendees about all things related to email marketing, and of relevance to the email community. But it’s not a place to sell or pitch your company. Attendees want to hear about your real-life stories, experiences, and learnings. Submissions that include a pitch for your company or service will not be considered. Generally, Litmus Live sessions run for 30 minutes. Over the years, the best talks have offered actionable tips, practical takeaways, and inspiration.

Tip 2: Shoot a 90-second video to support your submission

Show us what we can expect from your presentation with a 90-second video. Don’t worry about the production value; the camera on your phone or your webcam works just fine. Use a free service like Wistia, Vimeo, or YouTube to post the video online. In your video, tell us:

  • Your topic
  • Why you’re excited about it
  • Key takeaways and “aha” insights your presentation will offer Litmus Live attendees
  • Why you’re the best person to present on your topic

Need some inspiration? Here’s an example of a submission from last year, from Kitty Bates:
