But when earth wind and fire were super-popular in the disco era chewed often come home from school work and she'd put on some earth wind fire songs and just dance just dance. It was like a stress reliever for her. But stephen i would just kind of sit there and watch her dancing. She seemed so happy to be lost in this music. And when i started seventh grade we had school dances as you know. You probably had them to john and it didn't know how to dance very well so she showed me how to do. Some basic moves with like earth wind and fire songs and then progressive other moves. That were little. More advanced beginner disco. But it worked and i never had problems asking girls to dance. Because i wasn't embarrassed by my lack of rhythm on the dance floor. I wish older sister damn should've gotten the begged her for it. Man i needed so much help in that period of my life.

Sen. Portman Slams Pelosi's Threat to Delay Infrastructure Vote
"Senator portman thanks for joining us this. Let's start out with that infrastructure deal. You just heard speaker. Pelosi say she's not going to have a vote until reconciliation has also passed by the senate. I off do you expect to reach a deal this week with george. Let me say that. What she has said is entirely counter to what president biden has committed to and what the senate is doing which is a two track process. The infrastructure bill has nothing to do with the reckless tax and spend extravaganza that she's talking about in terms of what reconciliation as she called it so so no. I'm not happy with what she said. Because it's been inconsistent with the agreement that we have on a bipartisan basis. Does that mean we'll end up with nothing on their own. I'm gonna well if she has her way we could. I'm not sure what the future is of reconciliation. I know that the bipartisan infrastructure package is very popular among the american people and in the united states congress because it makes sense. We need it badly. You know forty. Three percent of our roads are in bad or mediocre condition. According to the engineers forty-six thousand bridges or structurally deficient We have ships lining up at portsmouth. Reports aren't efficient enough. Eighty seven percent of the american people. Nick we do it. Bipartisan infrastructure package. It's the right thing to do. Every president in modern times has talked about it. President trump's proposal was for one point five trillion dollars in infrastructure or is about five hundred seventy nine billion over five years so this is the right thing to do. It's been totally bipartisan. From the start. It's the way we ought to be doing things here in washington to get stuff done and i can't believe the speaker of the house would be blocking it. Do you have a deal. We're about ninety percent of the way there. I'm here this weekend working on legislative language with colleagues and with staff. And and i. I feel good about getting done this week. We have one issue outstanding and We're not getting much Response from the democrats on it. It's about mass transit. Our transit numbers very generous. We increased transit in this proposal. We also increased the formula going forward That's that's the one issue outstanding. Frankly at this point my hope is that we'll see progress on that yet. Today

"Cryptocurrencies. Largest digital asset rose as much as 7.4% 3 40,064 right now it's up 6.3% of 47,009 02. That's a Bloomberg business Flash. I'm Gregg Jarrett. This'll is Bloomberg Markets with Paul Sweeney and Bunny Quinn on Bloomberg Radio? Well, New York City restaurants, they will be open their indoor dining to about 25% capacity beginning tomorrow, just in time. For the Valentine's Day Rush. This is good news for restaurants. A question is. How good is this news? Let's check in with Kate creator She's a food editor for Bloomberg Pursuits. Joining us on the phone from New York City. So Kate It's good news for the restaurants, I think, but I'm just not sure how good what do you think? That's exactly right. It's good news and the optics of bigger good and get restaurants names out there. You get to think about it, you know, get the gear's going. But in terms of financial like windfall, it's nowhere near that, in fact, that the loss for a lot of them to open Will they be able to access more P p p. If we get I mean the moment it's $813 million in the proposal by the administration and may not end up at 800 plus billion dollars, But that's where it is that now. Would these restaurants that have managed to stay open or too close and reopened? Be able to access more of that. Yeah, they should I'm the new loans are definitely geared more left port chains and more towards independent restaurants. And there's a new those $25 billion federal aid bill for restaurants that is Getting some attention, and everyone's very hopeful about that, that that's the kind of thing that makes it different. No, not not opening for tables. You know, right before Valentine's Day, That's not that's not sustaining restaurants. So it can't be, you know, reading your story on the Bloomberg terminal with you and your team. Lots of great reporting in there, so just one of the issues is I got a lot of restaurants laid off staff when they were forced to close. Can they even get that set back and be ready to go? It seems like kind of a rush here. It's a great question. And yes, I think, even gearing up towards Valentine's Day that in itself was a challenge. But when Cuomo made a relatively last minute called open on Friday. The 12th instead of Sunday, the 14th it gives it gives restaurants a couple more days to celebrate Valentine's Day. But it's really short notice because a lot of restaurant workers can't afford a New York City rent and have moved away, so it's been a scramble for a lot of them too fast there dining rooms. Kate and your story. There is the sentence and it's just so sad. Already more than 110,000 restaurants have closed permanently or for the long term across the country, with New York City, seeing more than 4000 closures. According to the New York State Restaurant Association. These closures any hope that these these chests and these managers and so on that they reopened maybe once rent goes down in certain areas. Yeah, Bonnie, you know what I really want to be hopeful about that, And I mean, there's so much talent and you can see from the way so many restaurants activated their You know their models to do take out and Neil kids. I think there's a lot of opportunity for them. There's also a fear this is another story. We're working on that for all the real estate opportunities out there. It's gonna be the same better going to sweep in and take advantage of it. So you go back to what Paul was saying. Hopefully, when the loans come through some good, enterprising sex and restaurant, people will be able to take advantage of that. My understanding of the economics of the restaurant business is it's very, very thin margins and you have to be at or near full capacity and turn over the tables and all that kind of stuff and 25%. It just seems like unsustainable level. What if something's restaurant owners? Hoping for the hoping to get back to full capacity by the spring. By the summer. What are they saying? Yeah, There's a big There's a big person, New York City. Um ref rippers are lobbying hard. De Blasio and Cuomo too. Quickly. Open it. 50%. I'm not sure 100% is. I wouldn't even Yes, when that's gonna happen, But when outdoor dining can come back stronger, have been sent past organizations on that front. I think with 50% indoor dining and outdoor dining, like nice weather, and all those accommodations have some mate. That's starting to be a much more sustainable model for restaurants. But like Daniel Balloons is a great tech, Daniel Balut said Another. Another hard factor for them is that there's a mandated closure at 10 P.m.. That means a lot of these restaurants. It only 25% can only do one service tonight. If it was extended to 11. They might be able to see two services and that is, you can imagine double the amount of people you could bring in on intoning cases where there were more people like Jersey have higher capacity, so right now it's it's a 35% capacity. In Westchester is operating at half capacity in a party. That's where everybody went. You would have thought that your city which is emptier would be able to tell you, you know, here in New Jersey, the restaurants they are at 35% capacity for people. That demand is there. Yeah, absolutely, Kate that finally our landlord's giving any concessions. Anecdotally, I have heard that there absolutely not giving any concessions which really surprises me. Yeah, anecdotally. I've heard the same thing, although actually I've heard that they're starting to this. You know it. There's so much empty storefronts now so many of them. I think they are starting to realize or make or instead of doing like long term leases, doing short pieces, which I think in benefit of competitive restaurant jurors who might want to try an experiment and do something But not it's not happening. It's fast. Yeah, I mean, one literally Metal Manhattan you're talking about, you know, $90 per square foot. You know, it's it's an insane amount of rent. But that's because there are normally tourists all over the place, and every place is always full on. You know, it can withstand that. But I can tell you Midtown Manhattan is absolutely empty. A crater. Thank you. It's a great story on the Bloomberg and Kate always keeps us up to date on the restaurant business. New York City restaurants rush towards re opening with a grim 25% math in mind..

"So recently twitch was served a twenty five million dollar lawsuit by Guy Dealing with a severe sex addiction. Basically he believes that the hundreds of women streamers he follows, makes his sex addiction worse in. It's all twitches fault. Yeah this story is as crazy as it sounds. Let's get into it. Guys were streaming over at twitter DOT TV. Slash the score e sports, and we're adding more and more content every single week, so whether it's talkshow clouded or the rotating Friday streams follow the channel, so you know when we go live, and maybe you'll catch me winning another absurd game of chess. I one call now wait what what kind of stupid game! I. Don't honestly I don't know how the first happened. Okay? Now back to the lawsuit on June fifteenth. A guy named Eric Estherville filed twenty five million dollar lawsuit against twitch lawsuit states that s still suffers from a bunch of health issues, including OCD, depression and a severe sex addiction, and the lawsuit goes on to say that quote. Because of these maladies he heavily relies on the Internet for all of his entertainment, purposes and quote. Quote and basically he suing twitch, because he alleges that women twitch streamers make his sex addiction OCD worse quote twitches severely exacerbated his condition by displaying many sexually suggestive women, streamers through twitches, twisted programming, and neck owed making it nearly impossible for the plaintiff to use twitch without being exposed to such sexually suggestive content and quote to be clear, and this is in the lawsuit s to below follows exactly seven hundred eighty six women streamers. Zero male streamers not only does the lawsuit named twenty popular women's streamers including. And pokey, Main in-includes, pages, and pages of photos of these women as evidence as I was going through this lawsuit looking through these photos, it just felt really weird. It didn't sit right with me. One other issue that s says exacerbates his sex. Addiction is the fact that you can't choose to break down streams by gender quote. There's no way for the plaintiff to filter streams. He'd like to. To Watch based on gender, male or female. Therefore, the plaintiff has to choose a game and or category to watch with thumbnails, showing these scantily clad women alongside men of being the only streaming channels available to him and quote now in reality you could manually filter between men and women streamers, depending on who you follow, but remember according to the lawsuit Esta follows exactly seven, hundred, eighty six. Six women, streamers and zero men again, according to the lawsuit, the twenty five million dollars estabilish, asking for is to be split between him in other twitch prime turbo subscribers with the rest of the money leftover going to charities of the courts, choosing on top of the twenty five million s Davila was asking twitch permanently banned the twenty women named in the lawsuit. Okay, everything we just discussed. Discussed makes up the front half of the lawsuit. The entire back half of a lawsuit is dedicated to multiple academic papers, breaking down the history in research done on sex, addiction and listen. This is a real medical issue in this guy deserves all the help that he needs. But blaming women on twitch is probably not the answer now. If you're thinking where the hell did this come from. Actually ESTHERVILLE. Oh has history of filing these kind of over the top lawsuits. It all starts back in two thousand nine after s Davila was banned from PS end for being a troll while playing resistance fall of man online and if you didn't know. Is Basically playstations online ecosystem similar to xbox live? Here's a quote from an interview. He did with an gadget when he originally filed the lawsuit quote. I sued Sony because when they banned me, they banned my whole console, which is like a five hundred dollar waste there because I can't go online anymore, which was one of my ways of socializing so when I sued for fifty five thousand dollars that was something called punitive damages. When you're trying to penalize a company, and that's what I was trying to do. Penalize them for banning someone and quote from there. He sued Sony again. Plus Microsoft in ten does over flaws in different console designs that he purposely tried to find that in. In Two thousand ten I Japan gamespot could talk in a bunch of other gaming websites did their job in wrote about the lawsuits that Estella had filed against Sony Microsoft and Nintendo and he really didn't like that like as in he filed one giant lawsuit against thirteen different websites, because he was upset about the fact that they were writing about him. estabilish became so notorious that he was given all sorts of nicknames, the plaintiff the serial sewer. The list goes on. Also he wants sued blizzard, because apparently walking in world of warcraft took too long and in the lawsuit he tried to rope in actress, Wynona Ryder to explain the significance of alienation in Catcher in the Rye and quote. Rider, catcher in the Rye world of warcraft lack. Of and you probably won't be surprised to hear that. All eight lawsuits were either dropped by Estella himself or dismissed by the court outright now the complaint against twitch was filed on June fifteenth, while the summons was served to them on June nineteenth meaning legally now they have to respond in court, and while twitch hasn't made an official statement on this situation. It's only a matter of time before the core proceedings become public and hey, maybe this case will farther than anyone else was expected. What? He said all the haters. I'm not trying to zag just because everybody else is going in one direction, but I honestly don't understand.

"Hey Laura so last weekend. A defy protocol was hacked De Force. Which is a Chinese defy protocol backs by Multi Coin Capital last twenty four point nine million dollars via its lending platform. Lend me and let's not talk about the significance of that name. What happens with the D. Force attack? So it's kind of a complicated story and there's a little bit of a back story understand what exactly happened so it was a busy weekend and defy the the story centers around this particular asset called I. Nbc which was the cause of this hack and actually another hack. That happened twenty four hours before this hack so Let me let me. Just do a little to setup so I am. Bcc is this is just token that's basically a BTC peg minted by this company. I am talking. Which is a Chinese Theory Mall? It's like the biggest theorem on the world and I can see is not an ear. See Twenty it's an ear. See Seven seven seven. Two seven is a new token standard. That's kind of an augmentation of your see. Twenty there's sort of fancier see twenty with a bunch of other bells and whistles and it turns out those bells and whistles that they added to this token standard makes it behave somewhat differently than the RC. Twenty and it's a little bit complicated. What exactly those augmentation are but long story short. What it lets you do is if the contract that integrates Twenty doesn't know that it's integrating with seven seven seven you can potentially do re entrance the attack. We interesting attack for those remembers the same attack that attacked the Dow The original massive attack that resulted in the three and four so twenty four hours before this Linda thing happened I am. Btc which isn't seven seven. Seven was drained In the swap liquidity pool for Ambi Devers. So basically somebody was able to take a little bit of his NBC and steal all the money in the unit swap pool. That was that was a balanced between east and ears An IBM PC. So now this was not UNICEF's fault because you just want anybody to create a pool so he was like well you know this is kind of is really unfortunate but You know the people who created this pool should have known that it was well known in advance at seven seven seven. Have this problem so twenty. Four hours later So you know this is really bad. Everybody's talking this weekend. Twenty four hours later it turns out that some attacker out there was scouring of defy looking for places where similar type of attacks might have been possible in terms out the biggest liquidity pool anywhere for NBC was in Linda. So what is lend lend? F is a Chinese defy compound clone. That was built by these two guys. In China Mendel Yang is a Chinese defined buster and Shoeshine. Who's the founder of Spur Pool? Which is one of the largest theory mining pools so there too you can think of them as like defy celebrities in China. So this was a very hot project is widely renowned in China as being like the wheel. Breakout defy project Because China doesn't really have any big defy contenders was cut their their Export to the defy ecosystem. And if you if you remember back a few months ago they were actually brought to some controversy because they copy compound V ones code And they were aggressively listing assets into their collateral pool addy's mutations as their business model it's a lot of people in the West. Were kind of pissed off at them as being a derivative project content V. One so they they also an older version of compound rights compound upgraded to combine the two since then And compound has this very careful listening process where they list only one time. They do a risk review. They do all the stuff and Linda was a lot more aggressive in all of the assets that the added and one of the assets they added was this. Did you see and the reality is that people knew about this. We entrance the attack since at least June last year. Actually I think opens Zeppelin security research firm actually published an open source version of this exploit. That could actually worked against SLOP. This is back in June last year. So people you talked to anybody security. They know that this is a problem. So what happened was on April. Eighteenth us what was attacked twenty four hours later almost the dot it attacker started draining the lendup contract okay. You can think about this. As though basically the attacker is fooling this compound like protocol into thinking that they have more and more collateral than they really have and so if they're putting a little bit of collateral they can sort of double or triple eight quadruplet and they keep doing that over and over again taking bigger and bigger loans until eventually they take out a loan the size of off the money in the pool and By the end of about four hours of repeatedly iterating on draining money out of the pool the entire pool of Linda was empty and the attacker made off with twenty five million. Yeah so for people who are not with that attack. I'll just describe it briefly and also I just wanted to say the swap hack From the day before was a loss of three hundred thousand dollars but essentially the way this reinsuring reinsurance seat attack works is that it's like if you were to go to a bank teller and say. I want to withdraw one hundred dollars and your account has one hundred and five dollars within it. Then they'll give you your hundred dollars and then normally they would give it to you and then update your balanced five dollars but in this case with this contract does is. It's able to interrupt the teller at that point and requests the one hundred dollars again and because the balance in your account hasn't been updated five dollars. The bank teller thinks that you still have one hundred dollars like enables you to take out one hundred dollars again in. That's essentially how the these funds were siphoned from the Dow and from Linda me and you know these other and UNICEF Bob It's just like a small amount every time but it just keeps going in the smart contracts like matic and it works very quickly so one thing that I wanted to ask you about also was if the reinsurance vulnerability was known about with your c seven seven's from a year back then. Why haven't all the different smart contracts that might be vulnerable upgraded like an also weirdly? Why would it take somebody so long to even exploited if it was known for all this time? It's that's a great question It's it's sort of you know. People have this kind of efficient market hypothesis. Thing in defy that like well everybody in the world can see all these contracts and all the information is out there therefore the moment. That's something vulnerable is on May net. It should get hacked. And of course we see that. That's not true right. It takes some time for somebody to kind of put all the pieces together so a year ago it was known and security experts everywhere note. Seven has this issue. But you know it's like okay. Maybe the nine months or ten months later. Nbc's in Europe seven seven seven and they list on their own unions while pool. It's not that big yet and not many people in the West know what. Nbc is right And so it sort of takes some time for these things to get remembered an integrated in the right way that people realize like. Oh yeah there. There was at attack from a year ago. The real question in my head was it took twenty four hours after the use while pack for Linda for somebody to put the pieces together. Like oh I can do this to lend up as well And Try to imagine you know. There are a bunch of people probably looking. For what else can I do? What sort of a copycat attack that I can. Do you remember the Bee ex HAC? We saw a copycat attack like just a day later doing the same fundamental kind of thing with fresh loans against the asks. The same thing we saw today but it took a whole day for that attack number two to happen and I have to imagine. Somebody was like practicing. They were playing around with it. They were making sure the attack wasn't exactly the same. There are some different details. In how exactly that you contracts are set up but the overall problem was the same that the contract did not the contract allowed itself to get interrupted mid execution with another contract call. And that's the fundamental issue of re entrance fee that you have to avoid to fix this thing so you just want new. This is a problem and it says and you just walk. Do not listen. Iraqi seven seventy seven swamp like there is not supported Compound compound reviews all the assets that they list and they would never have listened in seventy seven. Because they know that it's a problem but because You know lend if just didn't have all those pieces and have all the contacts that other people had when they decided to integrate I- NBC. And that's what led to this thing. Isn't it so I'm sorry? Are you saying that you know that they didn't know about your see seven seven seven or you're just listing? The I mean I assume they have to know because certainly the engineers a compound where with this okay so in a moment we're going to discuss second part of the story which is the fact. That the hacker actually returned the money a quick story. It is a good story before it's too quick word from the sponsors this show possible in response to the Challenging Times CRYPTO DOT COM is introducing three.

That's a big piece. You don't wanna make your Phillies wait a month to to see return and a lot of affiliates. I don't do this, but I know a lot of affiliates by media, they buy ads and they're willing to essentially hedge their bet by buying traffic and spending money on that. So they're going to be billed for that and they're going to want to cover those costs. So. Across and also return. Yeah, no, exactly. Exactly. Man. I'm trying to think of what we haven't covered yet, but we've covered a lot. I want to IMF aside real quick, the copywriting piece around what you mentioned earlier as an affiliate promoting another product. That's part of the reason I only do two or three promotions a year. And as of right now, it's the same three products insane, three offers because I know that the marketing launches in the funnels convert. So there's you guys amazing selling machine. My friend, Matt Clark here in Austin, who has a phenomenal, Amazon kind of distributorship program. They've done some monster launches as well. You know, well, ten million dollar plus launches of for the last six, seven years. And then and then another one in the kind of the real estate niche, which has been a new, a new offer new product this year. But again, I've gone through these products. I love him. I see value in them. I know the quality will exceed expectations. But most importantly there the marketing converts because if it didn't, the none of this is is there's no point to any of this waking to be having this podcast. No, there's just no point to it. Like if I'm gonna spend relationship equity in time to promote your product, and if he didn't do job in the marketing side and convert those visitors in the pain customers that doesn't serve me, it doesn't serve my customers. It doesn't serve anybody. So that's really the big the Lynch pin for all of this. And if you get the marketing and the copyright and you have some great conversion rates than the rest is really just technicality and making sure that the things continue to run smoothly. Exactly. Zaki rate. Awesome. Awesome. For not a we've, we've covered a lot. Is there anything that you think we haven't talked about yet? That's a critical piece to pulling off. You know, these monster launches that you guys have been doing now that that's basically it and just just be prepared for a lot of work. They do. Require a lot of work mainly because if you decide to do that, you're no longer responsible for yourself and your.

"Of right around two hundred fifty dollars per person registered for the wasn't ark for the of. All right. So for every person that. Registered through your efforts, those people that you put on the list, you generated two hundred fifty dollars worth of revenue. Okay. Now you actually came in in third place, which I mean again, it was just phenomenal. You were not far off from second even first place actually, while but the difference. The difference was that the first place winner their revenue per name on the on. The name registered was something like thirty seven dollars, so so you've got this huge diff- I mean, that's a huge variants thirty seven versus two fifty. And so the reason I bring that up is because you yourself, if you're testing it to your list, you're going to have very different results. It's important that you manage those expectations. So sure. Maybe you did get a five hundred dollar per. For registering fitting, but you know, you will probably building that list for six months. You hadn't pitched him anything today. You decided to pitch them, you pitch them nice offer that that converted pretty well. But that doesn't mean it's going to happen again. So you have to be very, very clear with the affiliates, and you have to be very clear with what kinds of expectations date they should have. And so that's how I did it. I use real numbers and I was very clear on what those on what the numbers meant, like the context behind the numbers Yano. You just have to be. You just have to be completely transparent with folks. So I'll take the other side of the table real quick. Right? I'll take the affiliate side instead of the business owner side. I only promote, let's say, in the last year, I think I've promoted three products..

"Com. And I've been using them for probably four or five years now for all of my tech stuff. All of the launches, the they service, a lot of the other big internet marketers out there like Jahic silver and, and those guys and they just know exactly what they're doing. They've literally been through one hundred different launches. They know the tools that you need the software that you need to know how to make them work. They know how to that. They need to call the hosting company that you need to call your merchant account week before and give them a notice and say. Hey, we're probably gonna get ten to twenty x the sales volume that we normally get. And if you don't do that, well, you'll find out unexpectedly that your merchant account, all of a sudden stops working or they put a hold on your funds and put them all in reserve because they think it's fraud and they're not going to release those funds for three to six months, which means you're super screwed because now you can't pay your Phillies so that it's a lot in so you, we could never cover the gamut of of everything that you have to consider, which is why planning. So far ahead is so important and you need to have the time for the tech side like we were meeting weekly just on tech. That's it. Nothing else is. The last thing I wanted to do was have all these affiliates trust us send us all the traffic and said, it's blank pages, young. Agreed, agreed, agreed. So one of the one of the things that I wanted to talk to you about real quick. Are the. The the statis- some of the statistics that you had for your top affiliates, right? What our expectations that you can set around that or I don't know what anything. Yeah. So if you're doing so, here's the thing. You should never do a launch unless you've tested it and you need to be very clear on what those testing parameters were. So in my case, we were testing to an internal file, and even though we had run the campaign two or three times prior, I was very clear, look, this was a house file. This is how we did it. This is how this list promoted or behave. This is how that list behaved. It's very, very important that you have those stats. Because when you talk to your Philias, you want to be real. You don't want to make these numbers up. A certainly don't want to pad those numbers. You don't want do that. You'll never, you'll never get another shot. You'll never get another shot in a, it'll be gone. You will be persona non grata and you wouldn't even know. So you have to be very meticulous. So if you did a small little test. A your list, having hyper personalized emails and you were able to achieve, you know a eighty dollar or not eighty, let's say fifty or per registrant than you say that except you give the context behind that fifty dollars per registrant. You say, look, this was my list this evening emails from me. This is how I build it because if you're not clear on the context and United all my God, I got this thing that's paying you. You know, hundred fifty bucks for registering you put on. I mean, that's just this BS. There's no way that that's the same number through. Well, I'll give you an example. I hope you don't mind me sharing some of your results. Oh, no, go for it. So for the November event, your efforts yielded a result.

So, but maybe there's a very high. Quality connector that that says, well, you know what, I'm worth it and I'm going to bring these names to the table. And I think you can you attach some performance to that, but it's important to make those things clear right at the outset think that's great. And I've always heard of two to five percent for an override for an affiliate manager rights, own affiliate manager goes out and they bring on ten big affiliates that are going to promote your launch that affiliate managers gonna get to to five percent override on all of the sales that those ten affiliates make. So just to kind of be clear on that for everybody. So. Yeah, totally. Totally agree with you on that. And I think that's, I mean, that's kind of it, right? The Phillies manager who can also be a project manager, you've, you've got tech, which is necessary as well as we've obviously talked about and that just from previous experience, I don't know if I've ever had a really big launch go flawlessly where tech just worked fine. Right. I've learned the hard way you've got to have servers that scale. You've got a call your server company and your hosting company head. Time and say, hey, we're going to getting ten to twenty x normal traffic per hour. And I've had launches where the pages literally won't load and I'm just killing yourself because you know like these people are coming here to buy and the page won't even load. It's just such a big mistake to make, but you know, lessons learned the hard way. I tell you one of the great solution to that is something we did, which I think probably about six weeks before the launch, maybe a little bit more. We were basically meeting on weekly basis and we were not testing different parts of the funnel, and we actually discovered a lot of things. For example, it's not only the servers, right, but the databases, right? So you have a database that that sort of managing what's happening on page. Then you've got your CRM. Then you have the database is that it is sort of writing to. Then you've got your credit card processing in in your gateway in your payment gateway, and those things have databases as well. And so what what we discovered or what I discovered was, you know, it wasn't enough to low test the connection to that particular piece of the puzzle. It's not enough to test. A connection to the web server or the gateway server or the server that serving up, you know your your stream. You also have to go deeper and, okay. How does this server work it? You know what's the database as driving it, and then you have to little test that thing. And it was good that that we had the time to just test test test. And of course, having a good tactician that can that that was investigating these things was was very helpful in this might be a little too technical for folks, but put us in the back of your brain when you need it. What you're saying is is absolutely right. And we've run into that trouble to when let's say you've got one database whether it's your Email service provider, like mail chimp, or you're using fusion soft for your shopping.

"Right, and look, you're in business for for a long time if you were at underground to that tells me that you've been around for a long time. So over the years, you Mike Dillard, right. You developed his body of work, and it's a body of work that I can point to look at in excess. While it's the same thing with a copywriter, there's there's a body of work that he or she must have and the results speak for themselves. And so you walk that don't just take their word for it, not just take their word for it because you have a lot of guys who just left sometime copywriting confidence and they, they were told that, you know, this is how you're going to be able to retire and live on a beach in open up your laptop and right from from anywhere in the world in that mentality to me anyways, sorta poisonous, I think I think the reality of it is that it's, it's a job. It's a grind. It's it's hard work. So you want that person to have that sort of metality. And so that's what that's what I could say. I don't know the specifics on on compensation. If you're gonna hire somebody, I could certainly talk to my copy chief in on Steve. Maybe there's a, there's sort of quick little copy podcast that you do, but but certainly as a contractor, I think. Would be the way that I would approach. Okay, great. So what are the other key roles that you you believe are necessary to pull off a launch? I think you need a a a launch slash affiliate manager. There are a lot of moving parts in that person. You really just want them to keep everybody on task. You want the copywriters to be on task. You want the affiliates to be on task, the marketers you want all of those. I think that role is very important. I also think you need a a connector, right? And and by connect. So for me, I had a bit of a roll of deck, so I was able to go out into my network and find people, but even like that, I still hired a connector and you need that and you gotta pay your connected. In my case, I paid sort of like a flat rate plus like a percentage override if you will, on. On the sales now that was not deducted from the affiliates that came out of my pocket. By the way, only percentage override on the sales that that they're people bring in. You don't you don't pay them on everything, pay them, the people that pay bring. And what would be a ballpark percentage that you'd recommend? I would say any, you know, anywhere from two to five percent is fair. I think now you have to remember when I get into the when I get into this conversation. A lot of times people compare the, I m and make money niche, and I've heard some pretty astronomical percentages in that in those businesses you gotta remember, I never. I never marketed in the make money online world. I never did. So I don't. I don't know how those things play out. What I do know what I do know is that they tend to want a much higher cut and it's, I think it's. Crazy. But again, you have to decide what's right for your business and you have to, you have to take the health of your business as the number one priority. Because at the end of the day you put all this work, you generate five million dollars in your margin was two percent, and you kept nothing. You know, what would good is it? I mean, that's grind that you can never get out and so that's really, really important that you consider the health of your business before being, you know, I don't want people to to get desperate in kind of go for any deal just because they want a sale. So so that's one. And I think also how you structure the deal is very important, right? If you have a connector, how long do you pay them on the people? They bring you some some folks..

"So that was sort of the thinking behind why we did that in. So yeah, it was actually happening simultaneously there in Baltimore, and we tested it is interesting might we test to that. So we actually went in. And just kind of pull the plug on the screen. And it took about two. The user would have seen like the little circle where it's like loading where it's like asking. So I would have seen that little circle under player, but then about two seconds later, the Baltimore location would have picked up or did pick up the stream. So it was seen this very, very seamless, very cool. We use Google's, I think, is called fire something. I forget what it is a firebase Louisville's firebase on the page now. Interesting. Firebase was used for all the all the elements on the page. So like the comment system little, we have like little little headlines, little things that we, we push out people instantly see it. But interestingly firebase has a limit of one hundred thousand concurrent users. And when we saw that we were getting so many people to register, we actually be. Had to with up a second instance firebase and what we did was once we got to seventy thousand people on the page, we started diverting traffic over to the second instance of firebase again, but was incredible about this is that it all happens seamlessly. The team was just phenomenal. And yeah, that's pretty much how we made sure that we did not have the servers down. Very cool, very cool. That's that's a lot of neat behind the scenes baseball stuff that you don't hear very often. So thanks for sharing that. What are the most critical roles to have to pull off? Let's say a three million dollar launch, which is it's a big launch, but it's not crazy big like you guys did. Right. So what are the minimum critical roles that you need on the team to really pull that off successfully? I just want to be very clear. Three million is break. I mean, it's a big launch. I've only done that. So that's that's our bread and butter. But this is three million. Dollar three, two plus million dollar launch. That's it. That's what we do..

"I remember hitting that in thinking like, wow, this is this is insane. You know, we just pulled off the largest campaign across all of Goran as you know, a Gora is like the big umbrella. Billion dollar company, right? It's a billion dollar company in they've been around since the seventies with with some of the most extremely talented individuals us ever met copywriters marketers is just is just so much talent in a Gora and you know. So we're one of the newer and even one of the smaller affiliates of Gora and the fact that we were able to pull that off was was just so what was what were some of the stats. So this is where it gets kind of crazy, right? Because we registered something something along the lines of a quarter million people registered for the event. So when you say eventless defined that for buddy? Yep. It was a webinar, a live webinar event that we were going to going to broadcast, you know, similar to like go to webinar. So we had two hundred fifty over two hundred and fifty thousand people register, which just enormous had never been done before that I know of we had about ninety to ninety five thousand people show up live during the event which again was just massive. I think the largest webinar I had ever heard of before that was in the twenties or thirty thousand. After all the refunds duplicates and you know all of that crazy nonsense, I think we had hit like grow like super, super top line. Gross number was like twenty five million dollars, but that was that there were tons of duplicates and credit card declines and all that. But I think the number basically ended up right around twenty three million dollars in sales. Awesome. Yeah, it was. We brought on something like nine thousand something new subscribers at an average card of around twenty five hundred bottles playing five twenty six hundred dollars. Yeah, that's that's awesome. What were some of the biggest challenges you had with a launch that big? You know, obviously this isn't your first rodeo, but I've got to imagine with any launch, especially one like that servers are going down, like all kinds of all kinds of things going on. While you know, servers going down tends to be like marketers Rima. Right? They can. They can Email their list after. And by the way I hate doing that stuff, you know, I really do. I do not like the whole all the servers went down and so I actually went, you know, the the team in in that the team that we put together was phenomenal. We'd had a dedicated technical team that all they did was make sure that we would that servers would actually be up and running and none of this nonsense. So in the end, what we did was we use three different streaming services. We use livestream. We use NASDAQ which, yes, the NASDAQ stock exchange. There's a have an arm that that does like broadcasts and streams for for investor calls and we use YouTube. And then what we did was we had we had the three streams simultaneously going in then what we. We had adapt point was we had a custom developed player that would essentially switch between the three between the three streams. And so therefore it was a seamless experience for the user. But in the background, it's basically picking the best stream for that user coming on. And then what we did was we had to, we had a, we had the location in Delray Beach, Florida. And then we had a hot spot had a hot location in Baltimore and what was happening. There was everything we the the question was, if a cat five hurricane landed right on the building and we lost all power, what would we do?.

You know, you guys did gosh over twenty seven million dollars in in your last launch for this product, and you've done it twice now and nine months, you're over seventy million dollars in sales in less than a year for one single product. One single publication under y'all's umbrella. Yeah, yarn. Sure. Yeah. Where'd you come from? Like where's your background? How did you pull this off? And obviously we'll get into that in detail but geor-. Yeah. So I started marketing online back right around two thousand or two thousand and one. And you know, basically I was working in just lots of different niches. I never really got into the make money niche. It felt kind of weak to me to sort of. I mean, I was in making money online. So you know, I didn't want to tell people that I teach them how to do it, and it just felt kinda weak to me. So. So I just kinda really for the next five or six years. I was just really plugging away building lists. I started my first year letter probably around two thousand two, and I wrote every week for about a year year and a half without ever asking for sale and I was just providing content in. Yeah, it was. It was one of those things where it felt or it seemed like this this over. Overnight success, but that was all this. You know, it was years and years of just seating in seething seething that I was doing. And at that point I don't of, you know, Jahic silver. I'm sure you do. Oh gosh. Jahic was the first teacher mentor online mentor I ever had, and I went to underground to probably ten eleven years ago. Bosick that that was my first internet marketing event ever in on this, this new kind of walking around starstruck. So so yeah, Janaka a really good personal friend of mine. Good, good. So Jahic has this book called moonlighting on the internet at enough? You remember your yeah, many, many years ago and he had he had interviewed me. There's actually a bit of a back story there with Jahic, but essentially he featured in his book because I was in this weird niche, this weird dancing niche suss also dancing, and we were putting up some tremendous numbers and you know, he was really impressed by it. He put me featured in his book and that there was some other stuff there that he featured me in. And I think in one of those by mistake, I don't even know how it happened. But my my spy personal cell phone number was published in there. I don't know if it was in the book or if it wasn't a blogger, I don't recall. But all I know is I started getting phone calls from people that were asking if I would help them with their marketing and. At the time I wasn't really interested in it, but there was one particular particular gentleman that had a pretty interesting set up inside decided to take my first client. And so as of liked old five, probably. Oh, five, six around there. I started taking clients and I built a marketing agency for the next. You know, five or so years. And I still had the the south side. I sold it off before the big, you know, stock meltdown I had sold. It was it was. It was pretty good timing though. It really wasn't affected much by by what was happening on Wall Street, but I kinda focus more on the agency side of it..
