My question, and maybe KellyB is the best to answer this cause he's actually sold stuff online using the single-long-page approach* and knows the system, is, what kind of volume of business are these guys doing? The internet guru marketers, that is. Like Cressey, Boyle, Maroko, whomever. Assuming whats-his-face actually gets the $10K to donate and then starts selling at $97, how much will he bring in, realistically? This shit must work because tons of people do it, but how well does it work?


*Note: not hating on him in any way, although those sales pages drive me insane. VJDB is a sick book.

Not kelly but,

Most of the sales come from the initial push so if taylor ever gets to the 10k, there will likely be very little else coming in from the $97 price raise (What?  Taylor isn't going in to be bringin' in the benji's after the 10k?).  But seriously most sales are within the first few weeks.

A solid content first site can continue to bring in extra $ but no where near the launch.

That may be why you see some people constantly marketing different products.  Trying to capitalize on the initial launch of a new product.

What it Taylor's true benefit off of this?

IMO it is building an email list

It is not, and never has been, about the $97 launch to make $.  IMO (I am not Taylor) it is an opportunity to raise $ for charity and build his list simultaneously via giving away the free podcasts. 

Note there were no list trades or any such thing.

Personally I am trying to establish EA as a content driven site first, kinda like KellyB's site.  When people think of EA they will think good info first with a decent message board.

I think you gotta be very naive to think the guy is going to wait for 500 people to donate bla bla bla... if I were a scumbag, maybe I'd wait for like 10-20 donations and raise the price, or at least follow my predetermined plan (50 donations, whatever). 500 is too much. I'd probably raise the price when I think it's the moment to do it, regardless of the numbers. Who's going to verify anyway.

Heck, I'd pretend the price has rose from the first donation, but that maybe would stop people from subscribing and members number to increase.

The initial launch actually gives him a lot of dough in the amount of time he does in the pre-release. I heard Flying in Four got like $24k or so in the first couple of weeks and TAQ has gotten about 40k in total so far. I don't know where I got the numbers since it was a while ago on some article about young entrepreneurs on the internet.

I only know of Taylor Allan through his Prolific Shooting Program, so I'm not sure about the whole Athletic Domination Expo saga.  I can say that he does appear to have good solid Basketball skills and does appear to practice what he preach.  He can shoot the Basketball and he has turned himself into a pretty good athlete as well.  It's just his marketing that I can't get past.  I've seen him have like 20 other websites with the same kind of theme and a similar product branded under a different name.  I can't speak for his products, because I don't know what they're like, but he does appear to be upfront and honest about his own credentials.  The marketing of his stuff is just over the top and comes off as a cash grab.  The free info he has given out has been pretty good for the most part though.  I think his reputation is very much up in the air and it's hard for me to lean one way or another without having viewed one of his products.
