A Million in 24 hours

I've heard of internet marketers that have made over a million dollars within 24 hours, like John Reese, and Frank Kern, and others. And I'm wondering exactly HOW did they do it. What exactly did they do to make that happen? What do they do different from everybody else?

I tried searching Google to figure out the HOW, but all you see is websites talking about the fact that they did it, not HOW they did it. I search this forum, but I didn't find the HOW either.

I'm not interested in comments telling me that I need to learn to crawl before I walk, or how I need to focus upon making my first dollar before making a million. That's just common sense. I saw those kind of responses in another similar post. I know I'm not going to get rich over night. I know there is a LOT of work involved, I just want to know what direction I need to be headed in to eventually get to the point where I can make a million in a short amount of time.

If you want to do something that not many people have done before then you need to find other people who have done it and figure out HOW they've done it. That's all I'm trying to do here.

Does anybody know how they done it with a little bit of details please? I'm guessing they probably had their own list funnel? And they probably promoted other people's products in addition to their own? They probably had a few products of their own so that they could also have some upsales? They probably had a very high priced product, $997 or something, in there somewhere? They probably did a webinar series to sale this high priced product? They probably got other people with lists in their niche to send them traffic for a commission of any sales made? Am I close? What am I missing?

I don't see how they could have done it with just one $1,000 product. You would have to sell a thousand people on that thousand dollar product to make a million. That's a lot of traffic in 24 hours if the average product converts at 2%. And some of that would go to paying people commissions for sending you their traffic.

    From what I know, both did it with their own large product launches… They took months to set up the products, and a few weeks to a month to hype it up as well as have their JV partners email out on it. It wasn't just they went from zero to $1 million in 24 hours, it took months of work to get to that point to make a profit on launch day

      And it took them months, if not years, to create these relationships.


      The real "secret" is how well they network, which is a weakness in my own marketing. Having good relationships with successful people is the single greatest asset in marketing and business IMO.

      That's exactly how it works. These guys having been playing in the field for a long time and have allot of knowledge, that took them years to accumulate.

      These guys didn't just come out yesterday.


      The result of a million in 24 hours is the result of learning how to make 1 dollar online.

      Focus on your first dollar and making a million in 24 hours will make allot more sense to you.

      Yes, Jeff Lenney is exactly right. They took months/weeks in preparation and they leveraged their JV partners (using other peoples' efforts) to sell their own products on a well-planned, well-calculated launch day.

      What the story doesn't tell you is that they were also paying out commissions of at least 50% to their JV partners, and while a million came in, at least half a million of it was paid out. An extraordinary event, nonetheless.

      While a Million in 24 hours is remarkable, who says you have to do it in one day?
      If it takes you a year or two to accomplish, it's still remarkable ...and
      you don't need to spend months in preparation nor your own product to accomplish the same results.

      You can use other peoples' efforts and somebody else's product to produce the same or better results ... Maybe just not within 24 hours.

    I believe they had their own product to start with. They probably had a lot of joint venture partners sending emails on their behalf. Throw in some paid traffic (a lot) and they made it happen.

      There are full pdf's on these launches and how they succeeded - but more than that...they weren't recent.

      John Reese launched Traffic Secrets - a massive set of dvd's and pdfs and workbooks - in 2003, and people are still talking about it. That should tell you how uncommon such big money days are, shouldn't it?

      bove and beyond when it comes to hyping the product, recruiting jv's, creating a high converting sales letter, having an extremely profitable funnel, and offering high end coaching and seminars and etc...
      You make it sound like the current trend of creating buzz and getting "partners" and hyping...but what you didn't mention was the products themselves were innovative and substantial.

    Even a sloppy product launch can bring in a couple thousand dollars, so it's make sense that someone could make $1,000,000 in 24 hours if that person does everything right and goes above and beyond when it comes to hyping the product, recruiting jv's, creating a high converting sales letter, having an extremely profitable funnel, and offering high end coaching and seminars and etc...

    They actually made that money over months and years of building relationships, building their reputation, building a list of fans, etc. They collected the money in 24 hours. Similar to how we make money at our job for 2 weeks before we get paid (collect a paycheck).

    Most focus on the collection part and not what it took and how long it took to get to payday.

    "There are full pdf's on these launches and how they succeeded"

    Where are these pdf's? Is Traffic Secrets one of them? Do these methods still work?

    "The real "secret" is how well they network. Having good relationships with successful people is the single greatest asset in marketing and business IMO."

    That makes sense. You are probably right.

    "Most focus on the collection part and not what it took and how long it took to get to payday."

    True, but I do want to look at the collection part too and figure out mathematically how it's even possible. If anyone can enlighten me there with some numbers. Doesn't have to be in a 24 hour period, but what would it take to make a million in a few months to a year?

  • That's the thing about the IM niche. It's new members often forget/don't know that the offline direct response method is used in online marketing. Making internet marketing only one aspect of the business, as it merely is where the main payment processor is. But the money is in hosting your own live events

    And when combined or attached to a high ticket live event/coaching program/V.I.P. Day/workshop etc. The product launches makes millions during the launch period. Often tens of thousands are even made in the soft launch to test and tweak the payment system.

    Selling $47 products alone online is not going to make you millions in sales without alot of jv partners and affiliates. It's those dvd/video sales of that live event that makes that high backend income.

    I always post on the newbies question how to make money over night etc.

    That if you have a high converting weight loss/make money online /pickup hot girls product to promote that you selling for $100+, or even find an affiliate product that sells for $100+ from clickbank or digiresults(Pays your commission from each sale directly into your paypal account). Then borrow a $80 from a family member or friend, someone who wants to see you succeed. Start an ad campaign of $80 on a website called adfly to get 100,000 view to your offer in less than one day.

    If that product converts at 1% = 1000 sales x $100 x 75% commission = $75,000.00

    So if you wanted to scale that up to $7,5Million then you would need $1000 product 75% $750 x 10,000 sales from a million views from paid traffic on websites like facebook, pintrest, plenty of fish etc.

    But what would be better will be to get in touch with a list broker with buyers who bought similar products in your niche in the last 30 to 90 days. sending to a million of those or even 100,000 of views will convert higher if your sales funnel is optimised correctly with high ticket backend products.

    Yes It's event planning...Now the internet marketer needs to learn a new skill to book hotels to host the 3 day $10,000.00/$15,000.00 live event. Getting butts in seats will land you your million dollar days.

    It's fun though knowing how to plan a live event or producing your own television show around your business to command your high ticket fees and have your happy clients gladly pay you and give raving testimonials of their transformation process thanks to you.

    People who make millions online have been to 3 day seminars, 1 day workshops, 1 week bootcamps, because thats where the transformation process happens. There is nothing like looking around in the filled room from the stage and seeing all the light bulbs go off with all the business ideas and joint venture partnerships that are negotiated at places like that. You get to rub shoulders with multi-millionaires who mentor and coach people 1 on 1 and group coaching with paying clients of $10,000.00 to $20,000.00. And they easily sell a thousand to 7000 of those using just paid traffic. That's besides their other affiliates sending out emails to their high converting mailing lists. Yes their company turns over $140million per year in sales. Give or take paying affiliates and jv partners.

    So that's how you make a million over night. Only by investing in yourself and in your own education first with people who are in the monthly income bracket that you want to be in.

    My one mentor's net worth was $400Million back in 2009 when he mentored me. Today in 2015 they call him the $50billion man

    So be prepared to invest atleast $1000 to $2000 on your own education first and attend a live event and crack the money making code.

    Best wishes for your internet/event planning business

    It's not really that hard when you think about it. However, it generally requires having a strong reputation (i.e. people are familiar with you and eager to buy what you sell), a big list, and an army of affiliates also getting the word out when your product launches.

    Also, there are people selling products for a lot more than $1,000. The big names in this business can sell a high-end private coaching or training program for 10 times that. All it takes is 100 people at $10,000 or 200 at $5,000 to make a million. If everything is in place, it's doable. But getting to that point takes time and effort - it's simply not going to happen overnight. If you're looking for shortcuts to that kind of money / IM success, they don't exist.

    Awesome, thanks.

    Instead of coming up with your own high end product and doing all of that networking previously mentioned which can take years, wouldn't it be easier to just take that one idea you mentioned further. You mentioned selling a $100 + product from clickbank with a 75% commission, and starting an ad campaign for $80 on adfly to get 100,000 views to your offer in less than one day. You said that if that product converts at 1% = 1000 sales x $100 x 75% commission = $75,000.00. So why not just keep doing the same thing? You won't have to make your own $1,000 product that way or bother with networking? If you did that 13 or 14 times it would reach the million dollar mark (75,000 x 14 = 1,050,000). You could spread that out over the course of a year if you wanted to. Any reason why that wouldn't work? Can you really get 100,000 views to your offer in one day with an $80 ad? Why isn't everybody doing that, is it targeted traffic?

    Oh, I see, they'd be more targeted. How do you find a list broker? I've never heard of a list broker. How does a list broker obtain such knowledge on who's recently bought similar items in your niche?

    As far as the high ticket backend product - couldn't you just promote somebody else's instead of creating your own?

      Do some research - not that hard to find the answers to your questions about list brokers. However, if you use one, do your due diligence as well.

      Sure you can, as an affiliate. But you'll get only a percentage of the commission. Nothing wrong with that, but the people making the kind of money you're talking about are usually launching their own products, not acting as affiliates. But many people do make excellent money as affiliates if they know how to get targeted traffic to the offer, and choose offers that pay well.

    If you're talking to me, I thanked you back in #11. I believe I understand your first post. Although I did try to do some research on list brokers, I didn't have much luck. I searched "list broker, how to find a list broker, what is a list broker" on google, bing, and this forum. There was nothing on this forum, and only definitions in the the search engines. Looked like I might have come across a couple of list brokers but I have no idea how you know if they're worth doing business with.

      Try going to your public library and ask their reference department if they have the SRDS book
      (Standard Rates and Data Service) It's the reference bible list brokers use to find the right list
      to match your offer to.

        There are people like John Chow and Matt Lloyd who've been in the IM business for a few years, know how the process works, have experience people in their team, large and targeted email lists and aren't frightened in selling high-end products and services in excess of $1000.

        Making a $1000 in 24 hours would be a delightful figure for most people in this field including

    So it wasn't like they made all the money from ground zero. They had to build relationships, which takes time and usually is the most time consuming part of starting a business. It is interesting to see how some people make his or her money.

    When they say $X in 24 hours, they are being somewhat deceptive. These "gurus" all build email lists of thousands and even millions of followers over the course of months and years. And then they launch a product to that email list and sell $1m or whatever amount in 24 hours.

    But they didn't start from scratch and do it in 24 hours. They spent years building their list and then probably weeks or months creating the product. The launch is what brings in the money, but it's only a fraction of the work involved.

    Another deception is that just because they sold $1m+ in 24 hours, doesn't mean they made that much profit. Maybe they sold $1m but paid out $750k to their affiliate partners who did most of the selling for them. Internet marketers like to brag about revenue instead of profit, because revenue is always a higher number.

      I would start by locating the material and the products the 24 hr gurus put out and any courses they are currently offering.

      me myself I like the guys who used to be regular joes who had successes in IM.

      Like
      Tristan Bull
      Jason Fladlien
      John Chow

      The list goes on 4ever just keep in mind that roughly 95% are either not applying themselves correctly or spend more time talking about it rather than doing it.

      Personally I don't see how anyone can learn the basics and not make their first sale within 3 months.

If want to earn this amount, how much money should you invest? do you have the ability to invest this huge amount of money? If you have, please carry on.

    The same way as anyone else makes a million 24 hours - by working several months to prepare for that event. Everything else is a matter of scale.

    If you're getting a profit of $100 per product (and upsells), you need to sell 10000 to make a million. If you get a 10% conversion rate on your list and the list of others, you need a list of 100.000 people, which is not that much.

    Usually When you hear marketers making that kind of money in short periods of time, it's because they running promotion about the product to their list for a while before they actually release it. Also these marketers will have a large subscriber base as well and are known for producing good stuff. It's why to me building a list, providing good and building a relationship with your list is the most important part of building a long term successful online marketing biz.

    He actually published a 19-page "special report" which explains how he made that $1,080,496.37 (to be exact) in 24 hours.

    The most important components that he expands upon are:

    1. Abundance thinking/mentality
    2. Overdelivering/providing exceptional value
    3. Anticipation
    4. Generosity/giving
    5. Social proof
    6. Faith/believing in yourself and what you're aiming to accomplish

    It's a really cool report. Here's the link to it:

      The subject of this thread reminds me of those huge domino "knock overs" - you know the ones where it takes six months to set up a million dominoes in exactly the right spots so that when one is tipped over it tips over the next one to it, and the next, and the next . . .

      There is a heck of a lot of preparation that most people never imagine or think about and all they ever pay attention to is the one minute it takes for the whole event to happen when the trigger is pulled.

      It takes a special amount of consistent effort, sometimes without a payday until the very end, for some of these huge launches to happen successfully. Most people don't have the right mindset, drive, or patience to pull it off.

        It takes a special amount of consistent effort, sometimes without a payday until the very end, for some of these huge launches to happen successfully. Most people don't have the right mindset, drive, or patience to pull it off.

        In my niche these people are called an "overnight success".
        Artists who come out of nowhere and appear to make it to the top "in 24 hours".
        The die hard fans however would have been following that same artist for many years, touring hundreds of dives, and possibly helping the artist push his van when it broke down.

        If most newbie marketers knew what it "actually" takes to make a name for yourself and or run a profitable business online, as opposed to what's being pitched to them in WSO's, would they still bother?

    Somewhat surprised this thread surfaced again after a couple of months being dormant.

    However the OP did a good job of getting across his questions. Plus he had a good title
    for his thread. I judge that of course by the views and those who respond in a post like
    this one.

    Think about it this way. Every new thread posted here is a mini launch of yourself.
    Also with proper use of your signature you are promoting your product. You can
    post here every day and bring awareness of you coming launch. If you use this
    tactic make sure you give something of value in each post.

    So I've actually done this - multiple times.

    I'll try to answer this without seeming like too big of a braggert...

    The fact is, the best I ever did was a million dollars in sales in 53 minutes.

    And I've done something like 13 consecutive launches of a million dollars or more (many of them multi-million dollars) - all of them in five days or less.

    In addition, I basically invented the process - it's called the Product Launch Formula.

    John Reese was the first person to do a million in sales in less than 24 hours - and John publicly thanked me for teaching him the process. I also helped Frank Kern, and most of the other folks who have done this.

    As has been pointed out in this thread, those numbers are SALES numbers, not profits. There are always refunds, and there are always costs. In most million dollar launches, there are joint venture partners to pay - these are affiliates that drive the majority of the sales. In a typical launch in the IM market, a million dollar launch will net maybe $300k for the person doing the launch.

    Nevertheless, $300k in profits isn't something to cry in your soup about.

    And another thing - the launches have lots of other benefits... like you get amazing positioning, you build a huge prospect list, and you build a list of high-end buyers.

    Another thing that has already been pointed out in this thread - the sales come in during a single day, but there's LOTS of work for a long time before that day happens. It's not like anyone woke up one day, started from scratch, and 24 hours later had a million dollars in their bank.

    I also want to point out that these launches are NOT only in the "make money" niche. I have clients that have done million dollar launches in markets like dog training and healthy eating.

    Also, the vast majority of these million dollar launches are driven by joint venture partners, but not all of them are. I have clients who have done seven figure launches to their own list, without any affiliates. The profits in those launches are a LOT higher.

    So how do you do it?

    You put together a great offer for your own product. It should be a higher-priced product... like $997 or $1997 or more.

    You're NOT selling more than one product - that doesn't work. You have to focus on one great offer. You can have upsells, and lots of people do... but I never have (I figure if I'm charging $2k, I should give them everything I've got).

    You put together a great prelaunch with high-value content (usually video content) that generates a lot of excitement ahead of the launch. You need a great, compelling sales video. You get your JV partners amped up to mail for you (that part is an art form). You will need some type of scarcity in the launch, and you'll definitely have to develop a lot of authority during your prelaunch. As far as webinars - they're often used, but I've done many million+ dollar launches without them.

    I'll just close by saying this - I started my business from my basement when I was a stay-at-home dad. The thought of making a million dollars in a day never crossed my mind. In fact, making a million in 10 years would have seemed impossible if I could have even had that thought. The fact is, when I started I was just hoping to make $10,000 in a year.

    It took me a long time and a lot of trial-and-error to gradually build up my results. I gradually invented my "launch formula" (this was in a market that was completely unrelated to "make money online"). Then, after about four years, I did a launch where I made $106,000 in a single week. That blew my mind and expanded my thinking in a huge way. But I still wasn't even close to thinking about a million dollars. But I kept expanding my skills and my thinking of what was possible.

    When I eventually did that million dollars in 53 minutes, I had been working full-time online for eleven years. I guess I'm not a quick study.

    So let's just say I was NOT an overnight success. But it was still a pretty cool thing when I had that million dollar hour.

      I think that with those two hand in hand, one can accomplish just about anything.

      Many fail in both departments, thus remain stuck in the same place.

      Jeff above talked about John Reese, (who learned the process from Jeff)
      Here's a bit of video with John talking to Tony Robbins. (you know who that is right?)
      And they both talk about Jeff later in this clip as well!

      Everyone is entitled to their own conspiracy theories and doubts. However, I doubt that a company selling $1,000,000 (1 million) worth of product in 24 hours is particularly news worthy.

      They don't even make a big deal out of Amazon whose revenues were $243,808,219 (that's 243 million a day or 88 billion a year) every 24 hours every day last year. I mean I've never heard any kind of breakdown about how much they bring in every 24 hours.

      And that's not all. According to this article, there are 64 companies with revenues more than 100 billion a year (Amazon isn't one of them at a mere 88 billion). Look at the list and even a news junkie will probably see at least a couple companies they've never heard of before.

      I get that... I would have had a hard time believing it back when I started out.

      But the reality is that I've done it, and others have done it. In fact, in the last 10 days I've had TWO people in my Platinum group have million dollar days (and one of them was outside the U.S., and his product wasn't even an English language product).

      The reality is that million dollar launches are not even all that noteworthy anymore. (Although million dollar days are a lot more rare than million dollar launches, where the sales come in over 5 to 7 days.)

      As far as making the news - when I had my launch that did a million dollars in sales in 53 minutes (and $3.73 million in about 34 hours), how would the news media even know about it? All the sales were on my server, through my shopping cart. The money went in my back account. I only had two other people on my team (and one was my brother). And I live out in the mountains in Colorado - the nearest major media is in Denver - a six hour drive away.

      As far as never having heard of me (or John Reese, or Frank Kern) - well, lots of people haven't heard of me.

      On the other hand (and I don't like blowing my own horn - but sometimes you have to fill people in) - I've been a member here since 2003, and there are lots of people that have heard of me. Like in the video that Arnold posted, you can hear Tony Robbins talk about me.

      In terms of media, here's an article about me on Forbes.com:



      Here's a direct link to the article: Why Jeff Walker Is The 400 Million Dollar Man -- And 7 Lessons You Can Learn From Him

      Along the way, I've gotten to meet some famous people - mostly because of the impact that my launches and strategies have made in the world. If you go on my blog at jeffwalker.com, you can see photos of me with with Richard Branson, Paulo Coelho, and Steven Pressfield.

      And last year when I released my first book (titled "Launch"), it hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. Here's an image of the list:



      Here's a link to the list on the NY Times site.

      And there are currently 775 reviews of my book on Amazon, and it's got an overall rating of 4.6. Here's a link to the reviews of my book on Amazon Here's a link to the reviews of my book on Amazon (Mods: that's NOT an affiliate link).

      Again, I know it might be hard to believe things like a "million dollar day" when you're starting out. And this is NOT something that's achievable when you're just starting. See my post above with all the caveats and disclaimers.

      But the fact is, it's been done by a bunch of people... many of them still working from home, and with very small teams. The ability to create a sizable business with a serious impact - and do it from scratch with very little investment - well, there's never been a time like this in history. It's an amazing thing. Thank goodness for the Internet.

    I am taking a shot in the dark, but my opinion would be


    1. A lot of testing the product to make sure it provided way more value than the 1000 bucks.


    2. Testing and tweaking there landing page, squeeze page, etc... until high conversions.


    3. Collecting emails and promoting the launch to their list.


    4. Providing sales materials and good affiliate rates to their affiliates to help them promote it.

    5. Building themselves as a brand and providing so much value to people that people trust them and pull out their credit cards just from their name like "Frank Kern"

    There is a rule of thumb in speech writing: The longer you take to prepare
    the shorter and more effective you speech will be. The shorter you take to
    prepare the longer and more boring you speech will be.

    So when we listen to a short and effective speech it is because the writer took
    a long time to craft it.

    Making a million in a short time means that the marketer took a long time to
    prepare the campaign.

    The reputations these men have built up over time played a major role in how well their products did. They have their own massive email lists and probably know many who also promoted their products on launch day. The million dollar days these guys have had made it seem like it just happened over night, and while they did make that money in one day, it was the culmination of years of rep building, networking, providing value and so much more.

    Only $1 million? That figure actually used to be $30+ million in 24 hours. I guess people realized that sounded too ridiculous and that $1 million sounds more reasonable.

    At $2,000 per course they needed "only" 500 sales. These guys don't have the type of mailing lists that generate that kind of volume, so affiliates were necessary (and I'm guessing sent nearly 100% of the sales).

    So they didn't actually pocket anywhere near $1mil. About half the money would have gone to affiliates. Then there is Clickbank's fees and finally a high refund rate. Then of course taxes. They probably ended up with a little over $200,000 from the biggest launches in history.

    I tried searching Google to figure out the HOW, but all you see is websites talking about the fact that they did it, not HOW they did it. I search this forum, but I didn't find the HOW either.

    I'm not interested in comments telling me that I need to learn to crawl before I walk, or how I need to focus upon making my first dollar before making a million. That's just common sense. I saw those kind of responses in another similar post. I know I'm not going to get rich over night. I know there is a LOT of work involved, I just want to know what direction I need to be headed in to eventually get to the point where I can make a million in a short amount of time.

    If you want to do something that not many people have done before then you need to find other people who have done it and figure out HOW they've done it. That's all I'm trying to do here.

    Does anybody know how they done it with a little bit of details please? I'm guessing they probably had their own list funnel? And they probably promoted other people's products in addition to their own? They probably had a few products of their own so that they could also have some upsales? They probably had a very high priced product, $997 or something, in there somewhere? They probably did a webinar series to sale this high priced product? They probably got other people with lists in their niche to send them traffic for a commission of any sales made? Am I close? What am I missing?

    I don't see how they could have done it with just one $1,000 product. You would have to sell a thousand people on that thousand dollar product to make a million. That's a lot of traffic in 24 hours if the average product converts at 2%. And some of that would go to paying people commissions for sending you their traffic.

    1) They took action
    2) Applied what was learned to improve/correct
    3) Gave people what they wanted/were seeking at the time
    4) Built a network of people who wanted to promote to earn income as affiliate/JV
    5) Built a system/funnel/process and procedures from lessons learned on what worked
    6) Created a brand - built "buzz" to launch
    7) Repeated this process to continue to build revenue

    You see affiliations in life with physical products/services and the online industry is no different.

    The trick to this is to continue to build such launches (a bit like Apple ) and not to just have a $1Million Launch and drop off the planet.

    The ones that you still see around making money today are the ones that still continue to evolve, adapt (even lead) in the marketplace of their niche and continue to invest in themselves, their employees and their business/brand.

    Think about Truth About Abs for example. Did not stop at one book. It is published in multiple languages and developed a brand for itself that many have copied since.

    It all starts with a step.. so yeah.. sorry, but you do need to walk a little first

    3. Anticipation
    4. Generosity
    5. Social proof
    6. believing in yourself and what you're aiming to accomplish

    The reality is that:

    1 you must have a your own product!

    They are usually able to earn millions in 24 hours after learning the tactics in last 10-20 years. They have huge email lists of millions. The have already millions to invest and have a dedicated team that works for them. Whenever they start a new project, they run a huge campaign, use all of their resources, experience and reputation to earn millions.

    But a newbie without all these resources and experience, cannot earn this much. Do and learn all steps to be successful. That is what I think :-)

      Huge email list of "millions" is a bit of a exaggeration, but I would guess they do have 5, possibly 6 figure lists.

      The key thing to understand about this is that all of this wouldn't be possible without JVs or affiliates.

      Also it's not much about banking a mil in 24 hours, but more about having a steady consistent income over a number of years. As exciting as it may sound to make 7 figures in a day, but I'm sure we all look for security and stability in our incomes.
