Yes, I do want to help but my company is also doing this to generate revenue.
Because it's now virtual, we can afford to offer it for only $29 one-time off investment. First, we could sell the tickets to people from other Asia countries that have convenient timezone with Malaysia. When we do it as a live offline event, it's sort of inconvenient for those in other states and countries to attend.
Secondly, because it's virtual, we could run a 1,000 attendees event without having any issue and minimal cost. Imagine how much it'll cost for the venue and logistic for a large event if it's offline. Yes, easily 6 figures of expenses.
So, although we charge affordably for only $29, it's still a profitable business for us. That's $29 x 1,000. Make sense, right?
You see, if we can't make it profitable, we cannot organize a good event for you. If we were to do it for free, we'll need to have 20 speakers so that 15 of them pitch you products to buy. WE DON'T WANT THAT.
But by charging a fair price, we can focus on delivering valuable content instead. So, from this perspective, I hope you understand that when you are paying, it can actually be more beneficial than registering to attend a free virtual summit.
