Free eBook by John Chow - How I Went From Zero to Over $100,000 a Month

Zero To $200,000 In One Month – How To Launch Your Own Info Product

written by John Chow on November 4, 2012


The following video is a presentation I did at Product Camp SoCal. It features a real-life case study on how I created an information product in 28 days, marketed it online, and made $200,000 of sales in the first month. All done with a starting budget of less than $1000.

The case study centers around the Work From No Home info product that Peng Joon and I launched back on August 3. I showed what an info product is and how we create it, how we set up the site, the sales pages, the member’s area, the affiliate JV page, etc. I also show how we marketed the product on ClickBank to get it to the top of the ClickBank marketplace. Even after four months, Work From No Home is still the number two product on ClickBank, selling 40 to 60 units a day.

As a bonus, I included the Q&A. The entire video is about 50 minutes long. I recommend you grab a drink, pull up a chair, a note pad, and enjoy. I welcome your comments on the video. If you have any questions, leave it in the comments and I’ll get to them.

Great video.Just watched

Jason James November 4, 2012 at 9:46 pm

I looked at and I saw that you were driving a $100,000 sports car in 2001, way before you made $40,000. You have been marketing for most of your adult life. Ten thousand hours make you an expert. It’s been way over that now. Does that make you a marketing genius?

Wow, amazing advice like always. Excited about clickbank although a little confused about how you got affiliates to work with you to raise your gravity score since I know nothing about clickbank except what I learned here.

Seeing the title of this post I just wondered that how can it possible. But after watching the video it seems to be possible.

Thanks for sharing

Creating my own product and having a truck load of affiliates queuing up to sell it for me is top of the to-do list for next year, I think it’s what all internet marketers ultimately aspire to. Thanks for the excellent inspiration and motivation to get going with this goal! :)

faisal November 5, 2012 at 6:19 am

Excellent video John ;-)

Domen November 5, 2012 at 6:45 am

John thanks a lot, I really love that kind of informations. I have pased few IM coaching and few really expensive IM guides, so now I can tell that I have a lot of knowledge for few online businesses which I can implement. I need to put my knowledge in to product and sell it. Thanks for seminar again!

Great video.Just watched

Sam November 5, 2012 at 8:16 am

Nice video full of info John Chow, by the way i like the idea start from zero but how can it be zero because starting blog with wordpress, we need to buy hosting and domain which already cost little bit money…. ^_^

John Chow November 5, 2012 at 8:43 am

I never said start from zero. Zero to $200,000 is sales. However, the starting budget was less than $1,000, so it’s extremely low for the amount of return.

Sam November 5, 2012 at 9:55 am

oh… i see now, sorry :D i misunderstand hehe…

Jason Mathes November 5, 2012 at 10:04 am

John – thanks for the No BS advice on how you promote products. You make it very clear on how and what needs to happen. A lot of IM’r s are charging up to $1000.00 for the same advice you just gave in your 1 hour video!

Plus they are recommending to help promote the product is by “borrowing” other blogs email lists to help promote it! Which just seems shady to me.

Hopefully I can get my first e-book together and get to work with what you talked about. So thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Thanks,I can get some of your idea but feel difficult to practices.I’try to study yours.

Philip November 5, 2012 at 11:53 pm

Dear John,

A ton of great information here but BUT . . . . What the hell is “Udemi” — or “Youdimmy” — or — I couldn’t find it because you didn’t spell it and your pronunciation allows about six different spellings. All of which I tried and couldn’t find the site. So could you just write out the name of this very useful website? Because it’s not visible on the screen behind you.
