How to build a
7-figure launch

1. Start with the simplest funnel possible.

The right emails, just the right length, with the right subject lines — to drive results like these…

2. Add launch amplifiers to boost revenue.

We’ll show you the specific levers to add 53% extra revenue to your launch — every time.

3. Then turn your winning launch into a system.

So you can produce predictable revenue, day in and day out.

This is the Breakthrough
Launch system.

And I want to give it to you today

Hi, I'm Ramit Sethi, the New York Times best-selling
author of I Will Teach You To Be Rich and the founder
of IWT and GrowthLab.

I recently ran a launch that generated $552,511 in 2 weeks.

We wrote the entire sales funnel a couple weeks ahead of time, without any fuss or late nights. They were fun emails, and it was fun to write them.

Of the $552,511 we made in that launch, about $378,500 came from the core launch.

Another $174,000 came from the launch amplifiers we’d built into the launch.

Best of all, the entire launch ran while I was out of office at my wedding!

While the launch was happening … I was across the country,
getting married.

Most businesses sweat and stress for months, all hands on deck, to run a $500k launch. (I used to myself!)

Thankfully, we don’t have to do that anymore. Imagine what it would mean for your business — and your life — if you could run a launch, stress-free, even while you were traveling on vacation.

It would be a game changer!

Plus, there’s one other thing about this launch that makes it even more special.

The $552,511 we generated was just the first revenue from this new product. Now we shift into another playbook: From here, we’ll automate that launch, which will continue generating revenue for years and years to come — automatically.

How to run a successful launch by focusing on the Big Wins:

  • You have something valuable the world wants to hear (most important)
  • You choose a simple launch (don’t overcomplicate it — this is hard to internalize)
  • You get the key things right: the structure of the launch, the copy, the timing
  • Then you add on launch amplifiers that let you dramatically boost your revenue (and make your customers even happier)
  • You take it the final step and automate the launch, so you can continue generating revenue automatically

We used this playbook to run this launch while I was at my own wedding — where we hosted hundreds of people for multiple days! And then we ran another several weeks later. This is the power of a Breakthrough Launch.

Well … that was the GOOD. Now here’s the BAD.

I wish all launches went so smoothly. Unfortunately, I’ve also run lots of unsuccessful launches.

One of the first launches I ever ran was for a product called Scrooge Strategy, which helped people save money.

I knew it was a good product because I’d used the tips myself.

Here’s how it worked:

  • It would be a subscription product at $8/month
  • It would be 1 email/week
  • The big promise was that each month, you’d save far more than the cost of the program (I estimated that over the course of a year, you’d save 50x – 100x the cost of the product)

OK, great. I just needed to figure out how to get people excited about it. I needed to launch it.

Because this was one of my first launches, I just decided to throw everything I had into it. I built a “Save $1,000 in 30 Days” challenge — a full MONTH-LONG series of free tips.

I created tons and tons of engagement, but it was exhausting.

I wasn’t sure how much of my material to give away for free vs. how much to save for the product.

I wasn’t sure I could keep up the pace for 30 days … then every week … forever. I’d mapped out 30 challenges, but beyond that, I wasn’t sure what I’d do next.

Most of all, I wasn’t sure if the people leaving breathless comments on my blog (“OMG, I really needed this today”) would ever buy.

Should I be talking about my course? How do I make the transition from “content” to “sales”? Would people get mad at me for being too salesy?

And biggest of all, would anybody want what I had to offer?

The answer was no. My launch had people excited … until sales opened. Then the positive comments and “This is awesome!” emails were replaced by crickets.

It was especially tough because it seemed like everyone was so excited … until I opened the sales page.

I’d been working days, nights, and weekends — for weeks — and had almost nothing to show for it.

Worst of all, I had no idea where I went wrong! 

(In hindsight, I made tons of mistakes. Most of them weren’t even on my radar.)

I can still remember sitting in my apartment, clicking “Ctrl-R” on shopping cart software again and again, frustrated I wasn’t getting more sales.

ESPECIALLY since people had left such positive comments. It was one thing to say nice things … but another to actually buy.

It’s funny how your mind starts playing tricks on you at times like this. “Maybe I’m not cut out to run an online business…”

It was only years later that I realized the problem wasn’t me. LOL! OK, OK, the problem was me — a little.

But the real problem was product launches themselves.

Like a recipe from hell...

Launches combine all of the WORST things in business.

If you took all of the elements of starting and growing a business that no one enjoys, then rolled them all together, you’d get the typical product launch.

High Risk

Launches put a lot of your eggs into one basket. (We used to generate 70% of our annual revenue in one week in January.)

If the launch works, great! But what if your launch flops?


Running a launch means long days, nights, and weekends getting everything ready.

Didn’t you start a business to have more freedom, not less?


While you’re building and running your launch, how do you know if you’re on the right track? How do you know if that strategy, this email, or those subject lines will work?

When you open sales, will your readers actually buy?

If not, what do you do?


Product launches today include so many complicated and interlocking pieces. There’s your funnel, your webinar and reminders and all that software, your affiliates, all your social media channels, all your different segments, your retargeting strategy, on and on…

…each one a whole new skill set to master. Each one critical to your success.

Will they all work as planned? We’ve tried all of these things, and each one has its own subtle surprises that we painfully discovered.

And let’s not forget the worst part of launches…


For most business owners, the reality is that launches don’t work. They flop.

All that work for low sales — or ZERO sales — and then it’s back to square one. Except now you’re physically, mentally, and emotionally drained.

A bad launch can be devastating.

Even if you’re determined (or stubborn like me), a series of weak launches will make you reconsider if you should be in business at all.

Rack up enough failed launches, and the flops can even put you OUT of business.

I know a lot of entrepreneurs — business owners who started with great ideas — who had 1 or 2 successful launches, then crashed and burned once they tried to keep it going. They launched again and again, following all the popular advice, only to see meager results.

Finally, they had to quit and go back to freelancing or find a day job. (“Oh, launches are over!” they shout. Meanwhile, others are quietly running multimillion dollar launches…)

I also know moonlighting entrepreneurs who spent YEARS working evenings and weekends trying to launch their business off the ground, never to run a big enough launch to escape the orbit of their day job. YEARS!

It’s no wonder that most people come to dread launches. Even people who’ve run successful, 7-figure launches dread it because they know that just because they got lucky once doesn’t mean their next launch will also be a hit.

I’ll be honest — some of our launches hit, others don’t. That’s true of every successful business. But thanks to how we run our launches — and our business — we don’t go out of business because of one bad launch. (And better yet, our “batting average” keeps rising.)

So, what can you do about launches?

Well, you can try NOT selling. Lots of business owners try this option. But they’re quick to discover that the “I’m not going to sell, I’ll just be cool and provide value” strategy doesn’t work. You’ll never get enough random people throwing money at you, unprompted, to live a Rich Life.

Without selling, you don’t have a business.

If you have products, you need to find a way to convince others to buy them. You need to launch them.

So how do you do it?

3 "Launch Myths" you need to drop

The internet is clogged with bad advice on launches.

If you were to build a funnel just using advice you found by Googling around, you’d end up with a Frankenstein funnel that requires 15 different apps, months of planning, scores of emails and videos for a handful of different segments, and a dozen A-list affiliates — and still not be profitable.

Why does this bad advice live on?

The reason is that, underneath all of it, there are several common “Launch Myths” that shape how most people think about launches. These myths are misguided at best — and destructive at worst.

I’ve talked to hundreds of entrepreneurs struggling with launches and ALL of them get roadblocked by at least one of these common “Launch Myths.” Some of them struggle with 2 or even all 3 of them.

(Btw, the reason I know about these myths is that I believed them — until I finally questioned them to see if they were true.)

I want to point these myths out to you today. Even if this is the only thing you take away from me today, you’ll be much better equipped for your next launch.

Here are the 3 “Launch Myths” you need to drop ASAP…

Launch Myth #1: "I need a huge list"

This myth is by far the most challenging to overcome because it’s half-true.

Yes, you need a bigger list, and you prioritize your list growth. If you’re pitching your $99 product to your list of 50 people, even the world’s greatest funnel won’t bring home a life-changing amount of revenue. Sorry.

But list size is just one variable in the success of a launch. You also need to consider price point and conversion rate.

Here’s a simple formula for calculating how much money you might make from a launch:

List Size x Price Point x Conversion Rate = Launch Revenue

For a smaller business, the numbers might look like this:

That’s a nice 4-figure launch to a small list.

For an advanced business, the results grow massively:

To increase your launch revenue, you can

  1. Grow your list size
  2. Raise the price of your product (or create a higher priced product)
  3. Improve your launch conversion rate

Launch Calculator

Launch revenue = $171.34

Here’s a calculator you can use to see for yourself:

Increasing your list size, price point, or conversion rate will improve your launch revenue. But of all three levers, conversion rate is usually the easiest and fastest to improve.

You can — and should — keep growing your list. But today, your list size is what it is.

And while you might be able to raise your product price once — assuming it’s a stellar, underpriced product — creating a new product is a long, difficult, risky project.

But creating a great funnel, you can do that today if you follow the right launch system. And with the right funnel, you can run a winning launch, even if your list is small. (I’ll show you how. Keep reading…)

Launch Myth #2: "I need Facebook ads!" "I need webinars!" "I need INSERT YOUR FAVORITE TACTIC HERE"

I have good news!

You don’t need Facebook ads for a successful launch.

You don’t need live webinars, automated webinars, webinar replays, or even webinars at all.

You don’t need complicated segmentation, videos, automation, affiliates, social media, or any of the other 1,001 time-sucking, low-return tactics most people focus on.

Bottom line, you don’t need to run a complicated launch.

My business runs on a 7-Figure Launch Machine. If you look under the hood, you’ll see all of our launches start with a basic funnel — using a simple, proven formula. (I’ll give you mine lower on this page.)

Then we add launch amplifiers that are proven to consistently boost your revenue without sucking up all our time.

YOU can and should decide how complicated — or simple — your launch should be.

I can’t tell you how much relief I felt when I finally internalized this idea. It was like setting down a huge boulder that I didn’t even know I had been carrying for years.

Launch Myth #3: "Launches take so much time!"

In the past, my team and I used to spend MONTHS on a single launch.

During that time, we’d be slogging through long days, nights, weekends … and end up burned out by the end of the launch.

After I launched my Earn1K on the Side program for the first time, a $600,000 launch, I was so exhausted I couldn’t get out of bed for months. That burnout was hard even though the launch was a success. (When your launch is a flop, the burnout is even worse.)

As we were struggling to crack the code on launches, my team and I actually doubled down. We tried spending MORE time on every launch.

We thought that would prevent the occasional flop, but it never did. It seemed like the amount of time we put into each launch wasn’t correlated with how much money the launch made.

It wasn’t until we started working smarter, not harder, that we uncovered the real levers that drive launch success. Once we found those, we were able to reliably ship winning launches with a fraction of the effort we were using before.

When you know what truly matters in a launch, you can stop wasting so much time (and effort and money) on everything else that doesn’t matter. Music to my ears!

Cracking the code on profitable launches

Over the past 10+ years, we’ve run over 100 launches.

We’ve run all kinds of launches…

  • Launches that were 3 days long, 1 week long, 2 weeks long, even 3 … 4 … 5+ weeks long
  • Launches built around organic traffic, paid traffic, affiliate traffic, social traffic
  • Launches for $4.95 e-books up to $12,000 masterminds
  • Launches for online courses, conferences, books, communities, apps, and high-end retreats
  • Launches across a variety of industries, from entrepreneurship and personal finance to careers and productivity (and social skills … and food … and psychology … and on and on…)
  • Launches with every tactic we could test: tripwires, mini-courses, segmentation, downsells, contests, webinars, meetups, fast action bonuses … you name it.

Each one of those launches taught us a lot. On each one we’d test something new — a new sales lever, a new launch tactic, a new internal process.

Over 100 launches, the breakthroughs start to stack up quickly.

Let me show you a few of the highlights along the way…

Over 100 launches later, we boiled our launches down to a super simple, reliable, benchmarkedscalable system. One that any business owner can use to create winning launches.

This is how a launch SHOULD work

When I was starting out, before my team and I spent 10+ years of millions of dollars learning how to build a 7-Figure Launch Machine, I would have killed for a “dream course” on how to run a winning product launch.

One that gave me:


A proven

A street-tested formula for building the right launch. No matter what kind of business or product I was selling — one that gave me certainty that I’m on the right track.

A clear list of all the pieces I need. And a short list, too. Nothing overwhelming or confusing.


Guidance every step of the way

Answers to all my questions before I have to ask them. How many emails should I send? How long should they be? When should I start selling? All the answers in one place.

Templates, examples, and teardowns for everything. I never need to start from scratch. I’ll always have helpful templates, winning examples, and detailed teardowns I can refer to.


A system that fit my business

A launch plan that isn’t obnoxious or sleazy. One that lets me focus on helping my readers — not squeezing every last dollar out.

A simple system that skips all of the complicated technology, segmentation, and software. Something that I don’t need an army of employees to use.

Basic material that scales into advanced material, so that as my business grows, my launches can grow. For example, specific examples of which amplifiers I should add to explode my earnings — and what I should pay attention to for each one.


Confidence in the result

Benchmarks so I know how my launches stack up. What is a good open rate? A good conversion rate? Where do I need to focus and where can I relax?

Confidence in the results I’ll see. I can send out my launch without worrying. Launches become just “another day at the office” — or another day OUT of the office! — albeit a very profitable one. Instead of stressing, I can sit back and watch the sales roll in.

THAT is how launches should work.

And that is how launches DO work with the process we’ve built.

The good news is, I’ve included every single one of these dream factors into a new course that will show you how to build your own 7-Figure Launch Machine.

  • Our complete launch system
  • All of the templates, tools, benchmarks, and the full set of beginning-to-advanced launch tactics

Swipe Funnel #4: Earn1K on the Side

One of the great things about our Breakthrough Launch formula is that, since you don’t have to worry about the nuts-and-bolts of your funnels anymore – you can be more creative if you decide to.

In the launch for this $997 freelancing course, we included a fun contest. See how this new element fits into the Breakthrough Launch template taught in the course.


Swipe Funnel #5: Double Engine Growth

How do you write a funnel for a high-end product? Study our funnel for our $6,000 advanced business strategy course – which comes with our post-launch analysis.


Swipe Funnel #6: Forefront

Forefront was a $500 experiential event we hosted in NYC. See how we sold out that event with this complete copy of our Forefront funnel (with analysis).

Swipe Funnel #7: Ready Set Evergreen

In the Breakthrough Launch course, we also talk about launches that failed – and what to do when that happens to you.

Here is one of those launches, so you can study both the flops and home runs.

Swipe Funnel #8: Call to Action

Breakthrough Launch gives you our proven Launch Amplifiers for adding 53% extra revenue to your launches – plus the key levers that drive launch success.

See all of those in action in this condensed, one-week funnel for our $997 copywriting course.

Easy, step-by-step guidance:
The Launch Planning Workbook

Also included in Breakthrough Launch is our battle-tested Launch Planning Workbook.

This handy, step-by-step guide walks you through all the critical steps in building a winning launch. Every funnel in our 7-Figure Launch Machine goes through these steps.

I recommend you use this early and often to make sure you’re on the right track.

(With this checklist, you don’t have to worry about making every piece of your launch perfect — not even our funnels do that every time. When you follow a proven process, you don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to guess. Just follow the steps and relax. This is how you create an effective launch.)

Is Breakthrough Launch right for you?

I’m extremely selective about who I allow into my programs because I’m in the enviable position of not needing to appeal to everyone — just the right people. I’d rather work with a small group of people who are committed to taking action, than a large group of entrepreneurs who are looking for the latest magic bullet.

Please read this carefully, because these rules are ironclad.

Breakthrough Launch is not for you if…

  • You don’t have an online business yet. (Join Earnable to start your business. Breakthrough Launch will be here when you’re ready.)
  • You’re looking for a magic bullet (a program that spits out a million-dollar check) without putting in the work that goes into building a great business that offers genuine value.
  • You’re starting from scratch and want to run a 6-figure launch by the time the course is over. Get-rich-quick schemers, please leave.
  • You have credit card debt. Sorry, your first duty is to pay it off. You will not be allowed in until you do, and if I find out you joined with CC debt, I will ban you from ever purchasing any of my products again. This rule has cost me millions of dollars over the last couple of years, but it’s the right thing to do. I’m not interested in opening this course to everyone — just the right people.

Breakthrough Launch is for you if…

  • You already have a business AND a product and you’re ready to start running profitable launches.
  • You’re patient, deliberate, and methodical. You’re committed to spending the time to build a successful launch, and you know this will not happen overnight. You know that if you put in the heavy lifting upfront, you can enjoy the rewards for years to come.
  • You’re looking for a SYSTEM, not random tactics or sleazy sales tricks.
  • You’re emotionally stable enough to weather the “ups and downs” of running launches.

And if you’re wondering about the difference between Breakthrough Launch and Earnable, I’ve broken it down for you in the FAQ below.

Take a second to read through. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, remember that you can talk to a member of my support team any time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will this work?

"What exactly is Breakthrough Launch?"

Breakthrough Launch is an online course that walks you, step-by-step, through our proven formula for creating winning product launches. Included are specific templates, recommended tactics, sales amplifiers, numerous examples, detailed teardowns, and benchmarks to measure your results at each step of the process.

"How do I know if I need this course?"

This course is for information product business owners who earn between $10,000 and $100,000/year in revenue and want to grow.

"I'm already busy. I don't want more work…"

Breakthrough Launch is built for busy business owners. The course, like our launch system, is focused and effective. Simply put, Breakthrough Launch will save you time on your next launch — and every launch you ever run.

Plus, with video, audio, and transcripts included, you can review the material however you like.

"What if I'm just getting started with my business? Will Breakthrough Launch help me?"

If you have a product to sell and have completed at least one launch — even if it wasn’t successful — then you’re ready. Breakthrough Launch will show you how to succeed.

If you haven’t yet started your business or created your first product, I recommend you join Earnable first.

"What if I don't sell products? Does this course work for service businesses? Or memberships? Or software?"

This course is primarily designed for information product business owners. Most of the examples we feature are information product businesses. However, the advanced service or membership business owner will still get a lot of value out of this program if they use launches to promote their offerings.

"What if I teach underwater basket weaving? What if I wear glasses? What if I'm allergic to pants?"

Watch out for Special Snowflake Syndrome. Being a successful business owner isn’t about getting perfectly tailored advice; it’s about tailoring the advice you do get to your business.

"What if I'm not sure if I need or want to do a launch?"

The idea that launches need to be massive, complicated, exhausting undertakings is a shameful myth. They don’t. Launches can be simple, streamlined, even fun — and still be profitable. Breakthrough Launch shows you how to start with the simplest launch possible, then scale it up as high as you like. Launching is a great way to grow your business, and Breakthrough Launch shows you how to tailor your launches to fit your business and your life.

About the course
"What's the difference between Breakthrough Launch and Earnable or other GrowthLab products?"

All GrowthLab products are designed to be helpful on their own and in any combination. If you already own one, there’s no risk in joining another. They will support each other and accelerate your growth.

  • Breakthrough Launch shows you how to create, optimize, and run profitable product launches.
  • Earnable shows you how to start and build your online business.
  • Call to Action teaches you how to write better copy.

If you want to create profitable funnels — and build your own 7-Figure Launch Machine — then I recommend you join Breakthrough Launch.

"How long does this course take?"

There is no time limit. You’ll receive the materials over four weeks, but you can take as much time as you like. Reviewing the entire course, start to finish, including all modules, bonuses, and activities, would take about 10 days.

"When do I get access to the course?"

As soon as you join, you’ll get access to the first module and the first vault. This includes a lot of material. Over the next three weeks, you’ll receive the next three modules and vaults.

"How much help will I get? Is there a way I can talk to Ramit for a minute if I get stuck?"

Sorry, as much as I want to, I can’t do 1-on-1 calls. But the truth is, you don’t need a call with me. We’ve tested this course with students and built the most common and critical Q&As right into the course material.

"Do I need anything to create a hit launch? Any special software or technical skills?"

No. Our launch system does not depend on any special software or technical skills. We recommend our favorites in the course, but you can run Breakthrough Launches in any system.

"Do I need a team to create a Breakthrough Launch?"

No. You can create and ship a Breakthrough Launch on your own as a solopreneur. In fact, Breakthrough Launch is designed to start with the simplest launch formula, then it shows you how to scale up as high as you like.

If you do have a team, Breakthrough Launch will show you where to best focus everyone’s efforts to maximize your launch revenue.

"There are lots of books and courses about launches. What's different about Breakthrough Launch?"

I’m a big fan of lots of books and courses on sales, copywriting, launches, and strategy. But after studying hundreds of books and courses — and creating 100+ 6-figure and 7-figure launches — I wanted to show you the actual process of creating a Breakthrough Launch from beginning to end.

The truth is, most books and courses fetishize one tactic. “You need Facebook ads! You need personalization! You need a quiz funnel!” Actually, you don’t. You don’t need a complicated funnel and you don’t need to burn yourself out launching your product.

Our 100+ launches taught me that most of the “best practices” around product launches are BS in a fancy wrapper. That’s why we tossed all of that aside and built our own system. That proprietary system is what you’ll find in Breakthrough Launch — and nowhere else.

Yes, you have other options!

We’ve already seen that our Breakthrough Launch system is the engine that powers the 7-Figure Launch Machine in our business.

What would it cost for you to learn how to do all of this yourself? I want to be candid about your options so you’re fully informed.

You could…

TRY ANOTHER LAUNCH SYSTEM: Yes, there are many “funnel courses” on the market. Most of them are super complicated, with an unclear track record, and result in the same sleazy cookie-cutter launches that no one wants to read. (You’ll find most of them are obsessed about a single tactic or technology, too, missing the whole point.)

We’re always looking for ways to make our launches more efficient and more profitable, so we’ve checked out all of these courses. But there’s a reason we built our own system: we want launches that are simple, reliable, predictable, scalable, and profitable — and best of all, launches that just work.

HIRE A COACH: $18,000 ($3K/month x 6 months). There are some superb business coaches out there, but also many quacks. How do you tell the difference? What if you don’t get results? Unfortunately, almost no business coaches offer money-back guarantees. And worse, very few coaches know anything about launches.

Bottom line, you’ll end up spending much more money (and time) on coaches than you would on Breakthrough Launch — without the protection of a guarantee.

OUTSOURCE YOUR LAUNCH: You can always hire a copywriter to write your launch for you. That will cost you $10,000 to $15,000, plus a cut of the revenue if you get a good writer. Still, you have no guarantees your launch will work. The reality is, if you’re still growing, you probably can’t afford someone who’s really good.

LEARN IT ON YOUR OWN BY TRIAL AND ERROR: This is how we did it, and you could do it, too. We spent 10+ years and millions of dollars in testing, mistakes, and buying hundreds of courses and books. Look at my online bookmarks and you’ll see 1,000+ bookmarks on launches, copywriting, optimization, testing, marketing, tactics of all kinds. Plus, we hired people with experience selling 7-figures, 8-figures, even 9-figures worth of products online.

You could do all this on your own, too — plus years of trial and error and hundreds of dead ends, to eventually crack the code for winning launches … hopefully.

DO NOTHING: This one is heartbreaking, but I see it all the time. You’ve put in all the hard work to start your business and build a product … then you walk away when it comes time to launch your product. Stopping now is a failure of the last mile. Don’t quit now when you’re so close to succeeding!

In 1 year, 5 years, 10 years … do you want to look back and say, “yeah, launches were too hard so I gave up.” Or do you want to say, “yeah, launches were hard so I learned from the experts, found a system that would work for me, and kept growing.”

As a business owner, anytime I can get BETTER results, FASTER and EASIER, I jump at the chance. That’s been one of my “secrets” of success.

And this is your opportunity to secure betterfastereasier results for your next launch — and every launch you ever run for the rest of your life!

Even if the only takeaway you apply from Breakthrough Launch is adding just one launch amplifier to boost your revenue by 10% — for every launch you ever run — the ROI is incredible.

How much would it have been worth to me to have this playbook when I started?

Tbh, it’s almost too embarrassing and painful to spell out how much I wasted on inefficient, misguided, and ineffective launches…

  • Millions of dollars in revenue lost running launches before I had discovered the launch amplifiers that add 50% more revenue to every launch. (I break down all of these for you in Breakthrough Launch Module 3.)
  • So many weeks wasted on each launch — chasing dead-end tactics, writing dud emails, juggling unnecessarily complicated strategies. We’ve built over 100 launches. Saving even a week of work on the first 50 launches would be 50 weeks of work — that’s an entire YEAR of my life back, and the lives of my team. Insane!
  • Not to mention all the stress and late nights running complicated launches — all of it unnecessary.

How much would you pay to boost your launch revenue by 50%?

How much would you pay to free up a year of your life? How about a month?

How much would you pay to free up a whole week … and know that you’ll still be able to create a great launch that just works?

I would pay a lot. I would move mountains.

But, I’m not going to ask you to do either. Nor will I ask you to risk anything. You can test all of this for yourself, risk-free…

An Unbeatable Guarantee: Try Breakthrough Launch for a full 60 days, 100% risk-free.

We’ve packed a lot into Breakthrough Launch, and I want to make sure that you not only get all that content before you fully commit to this — I want to give you 60 days to let it digest, integrate it into your business, and make sure this is really working for you.

Try the entire course. If you don’t LOVE it, I insist that you get 100% of your money back. I’ll even eat the credit card processing fees.

It’s simple: Join the program and try it for yourself. If our Breakthrough Launch system doesn’t help you create a winning launch within 60 days, I want you to email me. Show me you did the exercises, and I’ll give you all your money back.

This guarantee lasts 60 days, which completely covers the course. That means you can try the ENTIRE course and then decide if it’s right for you.

Breakthrough Launch will show you how to build a 7-Figure Launch Machine. And it’s 100% risk-free.

Just one final reminder...

You’re on the verge of unlocking the complete blueprints to my 7-Figure Launch Machine — all of the launch strategiessales tacticsstep-by-step systemsproven benchmarks, and hard-won secrets I’ve built over 10+ years of business and 100+ launches.

If you’re still reading this, it’s clear you’re ready to unleash your money-making potential.

You could try to “figure it out” on your own. But be honest … will you? And if you did, how long would that take? How many opportunities in your business and in your personal life will you have missed while you were thrashing around, trying to “figure it out”?

You could try some “tactic of the month” product from someone else. But do you really want to run a super-complicated launch that takes months and months of work … and may or may not even work?

Wouldn’t you rather run a simple, proven launch formula — one with easy-to-add launch amplifiers that you can scale up or down as you like?

I’ve invested a tremendous amount of time, money, and effort into building my 7-Figure Launch Machine. And it’s not an accident that it’s designed to:

  • Start with the simplest funnel possible
  • Add on specific launch amplifiers to boost revenue
  • Run as a streamlined system that creates predictable revenue, day in and day out

Businesses don’t grow by accident.

And while you can start a business with sheer hustle — you can’t sustain or grow it on hustle alone.

You need a reliable and easy-to-use machine for convincing your followers to buy your products.

Thankfully, you don’t have to build this machine on your own. You don’t have to wait for the time or resources to “figure it out” all by yourself. You don’t have to put all of your eggs into one basket or burn yourself out on another complicated launch.

Most of all, you don’t have to waste your potential. Or your business’s potential. That would be the biggest shame of all.

I created Breakthrough Launch to help you make the most of your business…

  • It’s proven over 10+ years and 100+ launches. You get the best and most profitable results from all of that testing.
  • It’s backed by a 100% iron-clad, money-back guarantee. You can try the entire course at my risk.
  • And it comes with lifetime access. You can use this to improve every launch and every email you ever send, for the rest of your life.

Everything about launches that I’ve learned, tested and perfected, is packed into this course.

And now it can all be yours.
