What is a "live lecture"?

Our new section is a mix of TedX and Masterclass, except the celebrity is you, the health expert. We offer health experts the ability to deliver a talk they’re great at delivering:

  1. hassle-free. Just give us the details and prepare to rock at giving your talk
  2. without having to worry about design. We make it look fab!
  3. without having to know the tech. We build everything, you just click into your link when it’s time to give your talk
  4. and enthusiastically co-promoting it WITH them
  5. and making the talk available in passive-form, at a cost you, the expert, choose (revenue-share model)
  6. and host it on our site, in evergreen fashion, so that anyone interested in hearing it can still do so, forever, and you collect the passive income (if it’s for a fee), or emails, if it’s free, to further nurture that relationship.

What is the structure of a SoMeDocs lecture?

SoMeDocs lectures are delivered live, over a one-hour Zoom, in front of a live audience.

It is similar to a live television show recording, where an audience gets to look on, in silence, as the speaker delivers their recorded talk.

Lectures typically last between 30-45 minutes, with a Q&A session at the end, afforded to those in the audience, which is not part of the recording.

How do I sign up?

Fill out the form, above, and submit. If your lecture is accepted, you’ll be notified, and get to choose a date/time from a link we provide. Once you choose this, we’ll build your talk a landing page and can both start to co-promote. That’s it.

When it’s time, click the Zoom link and deliver your talk to our live audience!

Where do I see my lecture, once it's accepted?

After you choose your date/time, your talk’s landing page will get built, and show up here, in the Coming Up Live section of our website. It’s now ready for co-promoting.

What do I do until my lecture goes live?

when your talk’s lading page is published, you co-promote. That means you share that page with your followers, so they come to the talk. We’ll share it with our social media audience and email list, too, to over 40,000 of our followers.

Don’t forget to tag us when you share, so we can swoop in and comment on your posts, to support them. It’s like having a cheerleader & publicist in one!

How do I tag you when I share?

Please use @SoMeDocs, where relevant, to include us in any shares. We get the notification & re-share, for even more eyeballs.

Where does my lecture show up once I'm done giving my talk?

Remember, we do ALL the tech and design work. You simply show up to give your talk. Once it’s over, we will take the recorded footage and build a new page with it, to house & showcase your talk. It will show up in the On-Demand section of our website, with the specifics you’ve chosen (who your audience is, whether your talk can be accessed for free, etc). Our audience can still sign up to see it and, if it’s free, you’ll still collect emails as they sign up!

What else can I do with my lecture?

Once your lecture is over, we will have recorded footage, which you are welcome to use inside a SPEAKERS portfolio (network members). Take a look at our SPEAKERS section here, and at the individual speakers showcased there. By adding in your talk, a conference, podcast, or business can see exactly what they’d be getting if they hire you. It’s great as a sampler. (this works only if your lecture is free and therefore accessible).

Where will I get paid?

The lecture you deliver live is free. Audience members are encouraged to attend if they want to hear your talk, and get the chance to interact with you, in a Q&A.

We count on their enthusiasm, to help spread the word on this talk (any of their friends or family can then access the same talk, for payment).

We will record your talk and, once over, make it available to access on our site, in the On-Demand section.

You get to choose the price to access your talk.

Once it’s over, we host the lecture for you, taking care of all of the design and tech aspects, as well as managing it, so that every time someone pays to watch it, you earn!

We mail out checks, or transfer via bank Zelle, 1 month after payment comes in, minus paypal fees (typically around 3%) and the percentage we collect for doing our part. It’s a 60-40 split, with 60% earned by the speaker.

So, for example, for a $50 lecture, $48.50 would be the total profit made after Paypal fee is applied. Speaker would passively earn $29.10 for each lecture sold.

These earnings can last for a long, long time, as your talk will continue to exist on our site.

Questions? Comments?

We love our experts. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions, an idea, a testimonial, or just want to say hello. We got you.

Disrupting the Way Doctors Deliver Talks

Disrupting the Way Doctors Deliver Talks

I’ve been dabbling in the online healthcare space for close to a decade now, and there’s something that repeatedly comes up in the hush-hush spaces of the physician’s digital lounge: we’re tired of getting taken advantage of.

In this particular article, I’m covering one specific area in which doctors continue to feel frustrated: that there’s no adequate compensation for their speaking time.

GRIEVANCE: doctors feel frustrated at repeatedly giving away their time to large conferences (that charge heftily for attendance) and not getting a sufficient return. Conferences that charge a heavy ticket price (even for virtual components once the conference is over) don’t readily share with speakers.

I’ve heard this also applied to podcasts. And while guests on podcasts are not traditionally paid to ‘appear’, I’ve heard grumbling by doctors who feel that their conversations are being monetized and that they don’t receive a return. Dr. Edwin Leap and I touch on this in our recent conversation, in the new Doctors Exploring Media series.

DISRUPTION: sign up to give a live lecture, with SoMeDocs. We’ll do all the work setting it up (just as a conference would). You simply click in, when it’s time to deliver your lecture, and deliver it!

Want to see the lectures that are coming up? You can find them here.

Note that the speakers have done no work in creating this, except for submit the details of their lecture and picking a date/time that works for them. That’s how we LOVE to disrupt here, at SoMeDocs. We take all the tech & design work away from the doctor and help them deliver a beautiful product.

Also note that the lecture, once delivered, appears ON-DEMAND. Here’s an example, by Dr. Funke Afolabi-Brown. Each of our speakers get to choose the amount it will cost for a reader to access their lecture. Anyone who’s a NETWORK member gets to choose between selling their lecture’s access, or allowing it to be accessed for free (in order to co-collect email leads).

No more getting frustrated at giving away your time.

Make the rules, set the price, and start growing.
