Adding The Nitrous – How I Won $10,000 Cash

Last week, I was presented with $10,000 in $20 bills for winning the IM Revolution sales contest. The money was presented to me by Matt Lloyd at his Add The Nitrous event in San Diego.

The contest was five weeks long, but I didn’t entered until there was 72 hours remaining. Needless to say, I took the other competitors by complete surprise. Even Matt was blown away by what happened…

John came out of nowhere. I met him for the first time about a week before the end of the IM Revolution contest, told him what I was doing, and he seemed ‘somewhat’ interested. He didn’t really do anything until the last 72 hours… and then he went crazy. I’ve never seen anything like it in the 4 years I’ve been doing internet marketing. In total, he bought in 296 sales, which was almost double that of any other partner.

Here I am happily relieving Matt Lloyd of $10,000 in cash. I have to admit. Holding $10,000 in 20’s is pretty cool. I also found another great use for my ScotteVest. It makes a great money transporting jacket.

Below is an interview I did with Jane Orlov (she came 8th in the contest) shortly after the Add The Nitrous event. In addition to explaining how I was able to beat out the entire field in three days, I share a few success tips that will help take your blogging and Internet marketing to the next level.

    Hey John,

    I got the leaderboard e-mail and saw you snuck up and took 1st. That’s also my plan of attack because if they sense you’re on the move then it’s tough to take that 1st place spot. haha

    I was going head to head with John Shugart (keyword rockstar) for the 1st place spot in a launch for some cool new tracking software the other month. John did a last minute webinar and knocked me out by about $300 in sales. I tried to sneak up on him and take that 1st place spot, but ah well… I don’t feel so bad losing to a guy like him…

    Anyway, 170 sales even at a low pricepoint like Lloyd’s offer within 72 hours is definitely bringing the heat! Lloyd’s JVs might have been swapping around a lot of the same leads doing launches so I can see how a newcomer to his circle could jump in and bring fresh eyeballs to the page and drive in that many last minute sales.

    You need not watch the interview to know how John did it. John sent around 6 mails to his list whereas other internet marketers stopped with two. I know because I am part of his list. When Matt announced that john is in second place short of 3 leads that got him going. He mailed a super mail claiming that he checked the system himself and made money with it. Another of his mails had the subject title $3600 within 3 days or something. He told matt’s story though not as good as matt told others and told them how much he makes $250k per month. Secondly he added a fake deadline that the book may not be available after 27th. All the spices made the dish great. That’s it.
