Attend to win a Tesla Model 3

You said virtual events have been hard for you.

Replicating in-person events

Event hosts are trying to replicate in-person events virtually and it’s not working out too well.

Complicated setups

Attendees don’t know what’s going on during virtual events that are using complicated setups.

Hopeful networking

Networking is almost non-existent because there’s no incentive for anyone except for salespeople of course.

Not events, just webinars

Events feel more like webinars because there’s no sense of community, networking, and fun engagement.

No sponsorship ROI

Sponsors are frustrated with virtual events and are not getting much value from their marketing spends

Too big to care

Event hosts make their money and say “see you at the next one”. And because these event companies are big, you just have to put up with it.

We listened. And we’re doing something different.

A Digital-first Virtual Event

Introducing Direct-to-Consumer Day Live: built to maximize virtual. Not trying to replicate in-person events virtually like everyone else.

Presented on one platform

Access the entire event from one single dashboard. Direct-to-Consumer Day Live presented on an all-in-one platform. No need to jump through hoops.

Get rewarded for networking

Network to win free services from our sponsors, and free products daily. Take it to the next level to be entered to win a Tesla Model 3.

One connection can change everything

Direct-to-Consumer Day Live is limited to only brands making $1million+ per year. Attend to network with folks who are out there doing it day in and day out.

Sponsor with confidence

Our sponsorship packages are built with your ROI in mind. We are banking on community engagement so rest assure you will generate the leads you need.

Your money matters

Unlike these large event hosting companies, we work hard to ensure every dollar you’ve spent is well worth it. You are an executive, ROI is important to you and we know it.

Attend and Move the World Forward

The recent pandemic has driven underprivileged communities further down the poverty line with many families going without food and other basic human needs.

Those of us privileged enough to continue our work especially from home need to come together and help those severely affected by this pandemic.

Before the pandemic, we had committed to donating 1% of every ticket sold to a charity of your choice.

But we need to do more. And we’re taking this a step further.

At this upcoming digital-first conference, with our DTC community, we are driving impact. 

By attending, you will be able to earn points by being engaged throughout the event. Your points will convert to more entries for our Tesla giveaway. 

The best part? Through our preferred partner, ShoppingGives, in addition to 1% of every ticket sold being donated to the charity of your choice, for those who do not win our daily giveaways or the Tesla, your points will convert into dollars and be donated to a charity of your choice.

The pandemic hit all of us hard. Physically, emotionally, and spiritually. But for those of us with basic human needs covered have to come together and help those who need it the most.

We’ll be sharing more details of our donation system prior to and throughout the conference happening from June 9th to the 11th so you can maximize your donation.

We hope you attend DTC DAY LIVE and join us on our mission to move the world forward.

- Together with The DTC DAY Team!

Breakfast included. Yes, On us.

BOOM! By Cindy Joseph

Serve The World Unselfishly and Profit.

My secret is that I’m consistent. I show up everyday enthusiastic and ready to put attention on my goals, both in my personal life and my business life. That’s how I went from starting from scratch in 2007 to bringing in $40+ million in yearly revenue.

Most beginning entrepreneurs are chasing greater freedom — financial freedom, freedom of time or location, etc. — and I was no different. I wanted more time to spend with my loved ones, and the opportunity to focus on what I found meaningful.

Building this was a lot of work, but I kept at it. And I have two pieces of advice for entrepreneurs:

1. Don’t give up. Everyone has ups and downs, but the people who make it are the ones who keep at it.

2. Don’t burn out. This is the most common reason people fail in this business. They work themselves into the ground. This game is about consistency, not intensity.

After a couple years running a profitable ecommerce store, I systematized the process well enough that I had time to start another. In 2010 I created what would become my most successful brand, BOOM! by Cindy Joseph.

As I continued to develop strategies for growing my business, I became more connected with the greater ecommerce and marketing community, and wanted an outlet to share with them what was working for me. Thus in 2013, Smart Marketer was born.

In addition to providing the community with content on growing an ecommerce business, I also wanted to share my experience with developing a healthy, balanced life as an entrepreneur: how to have your personal relationships and interests flourish; how to grow a happy, effective team; and how imbue your business with integrity and purpose, and how to keep yourself healthy and feeling good in your body.

And while developing new strategies to grow my several businesses, I would occasionally come across problems with no solutions…

So in 2016 I created Zipify Apps, a SAAS company focused on Shopify.

I now have a team of over 111 employees all over the world, and businesses that generate over $40 million in revenue. I have found incredible joy in creating products that provide people with value, in working with a team of close friends and family, and by participating in a community of amazing people.

And in addition to teaching I’ve also learned a lot, which prompts one final piece of advice: Find a mentor, and learn everything you can from them. You don’t have to blaze a whole new trail when there’s so much valuable information out there to help you succeed. Best of luck — thanks for reading!
