So Anik's launch did only $400K so far...?

by 164 replies
Just saw the JV email sent out by Anik.

Seems like the launch did rather dismal, pulling in only $400K rev, in spite of the scale of production that went into the sales video.

What do you think?

    Only $400k????

    I have no idea what launch you're talking about, but if Anik and company are complaining about that amount, they need a serious attitude adjustment.

    Especially in this economy.

      It's the Lethal Commission launch. They probably put in the greatest effort in the production of the sales video compared to those of any other Clickbank launches. They did the sales video 'movie-like'. But I'm not sure if they got 'movie-like' returns. $400k rev is typical of most Clickbank launches...

    So $400K was the revenue.. How much did they spend
    in creating the product?

    $400K rev is pretty meaningless without knowing what the profit is.

    The question is how much profit is in for Anik from those $400k of revenue... since it's probably an expensive launch, maybe there isn't a lot of profit there... although it's hard to believe that since we are actually talking about $400k here

      From $400k revenue, he'll be unlikely to end up with any
      more than $120k once affiliate commissions, merchant
      account fees and refunds are taken into account.

      Plus there's the expenses for the movie trailer production
      too.

      Revenue is vanity and profits are sanity.

      Dedicated to mutual success,

      Just to fill those in that are not familiar with this launch Anik produced a complete Bollywood movie and I mean a real movie, he held a premiere red carpet event in Las Vegas for top JV partners and the trailer was circulated from there.

      Then there is the full movie production, I saw Cars exploding Bollywood actors and actresses, full blown movie sets, Helicopters etc, I would expect Anik is in the hole if he only pulled in 400K from what he said his last launch did 2.5 Million so I am sure 400K is surely a disappointment for him.

    I'm new to this forum. And try to support Anik new launch. It's must be pretty awesome prosuct he had there. The movie itself must cost him not less than few hundreds of thousands. His projected return must be in a million or two for this week launch, otherwise the big-budgeted sales movie isn't working as it should be, to convert sales and attracts people to at least have a peek in the product itself. Hope the product is good.

      Well, it's true that revenue and profit are all relative.

      Even if Anik IS in the hole (quite possible), he can look at it as a loss leader. Now he's got PAYING customers he can sell to over and over again.

      It's more understandable that he'd be disappointed in $400K if it was all a loss anyway. But even if his profit margin was a slim "$120K" (plus all the new paying customers he can leverage for future offers), I have NO sympathy.

      IF he's the type to start complaining about that all over the Internet, I'd NEVER buy from him.

    That is a lot of money, but when you take into consideration the movie production it probably doesn't leave lot of room.

    I thought the movie was kind of cute though and kudos to him for thinking outside of the box.

    What do you think?
    I saw the sales page Yesterday - the sales video looks like a trailer of a movie. Are they selling a movie or what?

    I think he did well, although I think he thought it would do much better with the lead up to it and all the things involved. Movie etc.

    How much would a production like that of costed him?
  • Profile picture of the author thekaver
    if he spent $450k on the launch then it is truely not good! If he spent $50k its great

    So it depends what profit he made
    • Profile picture of the author Naimath
      $400K in sales from Anik? Considering his previous launches and the efforts he put in this particular launch, results could have been better.

      I'm also on Anik's JV announcement list but I didn't read anything about him "complaining" that the product only made 400K.

      If you are pushing your affiliates for more sales, it'll be foolish to rant that your product is not doing well.

      In addition, as someone mentioned above, with this launch he's got some serious buyers on his list and a lot of subscribers. These will make him a lot of money further down the line.

      Doing 400K is not bad at all.

    It's the second video.

    220MB.

    Man, the movie is awesome. Anik is good!

    I watched the movie all the way through and thought that
    it would create enough buzz just for being different. After
    watching the movie though I couldn't stay focused for the
    sales pitch that came afterward. The sales pitch came
    as an anticlimax to the movies climax.

    When you are rich everything is not always done to make
    more money but ego inflation becomes a huge factor. So
    "failure" may not be defined in the same terms for the
    rich as for the others. I'm not judging Anik here but
    just saying there are other considerations than just
    a huge profit.

    That's why selling to the rich is a different breed
    to selling to the rest of us.

      I give him credit. Guys like Brad Fallon, Buck Rizvi, and Andy Jenkins or , on a larger scale, Daniel Saydek boosted their egos the old fashioned way...by financing the movie and then hoping people bought tickets (they didn't, by the way).

      Anik is much smarter. He made the movie, disguised it as an IM product, and wants people to pay huge prices for it. Brilliant!!!

    Gurus = Bull****.
  • Profile picture of the author Ryan David
    I'm really not that surprised. I think the guru's were too powerful in that 2004-2007 time frame and kinda poisoned the waters. Stompernet did over $10M in their launch back in 2006...now they can barely afford to keep their doors open, let alone pay their affiliates. These guys used to be able to just email their list with some product and make huge commissions, now power is kinda decentralized.

    But to the video, I'm sure he was trying to be unique, but what the h@ll? When you see a video that's so over the top with drama, you're probably about to get screwed over.
