Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support of the launch effort today of Zero to One Million!
We reached #1 in Business & Investing, #1 in Marketing, #1 in Entrepreneurship, #1 Mover & Shaker, #2 in Non-Fiction, and #3 overall on Amazon today, only bested by Oprah-backed Eckhart Tolle and the perennial favorite John Grisham. We beat out Eat Pray Love, Good to Great, The Tipping Point, Blue Ocean Strategy, Ready, Fire, Aim, The Four Hour Workweek, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, Getting Things Done, The E-Myth Revisited, and well, every other book in the world other than Tolle’s A New Earth and Grisham’s The Appeal.
The momentum we built today will spread a message of entrepreneurial possibility to tens of thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs across the United States and the world for many months to come. You’ve also helped with the beginnings of a lifetime effort to reduce poverty and hunger by increasing access to health care, education, technology, and entrepreneurial opportunity through The Humanity Campaign.
It’s been an amazing day in so many ways. It is truly amazing what can be accomplished through word of mouth in the name of changing the world and spreading a message of entrepreneurial opportunity.
I wanted to publicly thank Carlos Garcia, Buck Rizvi, Shawn Casey, Tom Bell, Cindy Turrieta, Nana Gilbert-Baffoe, Keith Baxter, Derek Gehl, Dearl Miller, Matt Gill, Michael Simmons, Mark Shay, Rich Sloan, John Jantsch, Adam Gilbert, and Ilia Nossov for recommending Zero to One Million to their lists today.
To have the #3 bestselling book in the nation on Amazon on launch day is an over-the-top successful book launch by any measure. Thank you very very much for making this possible!
Here’s a list of some of the blogs we reached today…
Thank you sincerely for your help!

My new book Zero to One Million launches today. Would you buy a copy on Amazon today before midnight Eastern Time?
The link is: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0071496661/
Today, February 5, is the big push day that we are trying to become #1 on Amazon. If we can sell 2,500 copies of the book today we should make it to #1. I would like to sincerely ask for your assistance to reach this lifetime goal.
In Zero to One Million, I share my story going from an 11 year-old with a dream living in Bradenton, Florida providing computer help to senior citizens for $5 per hour to today at age 23 running iContact in Durham, North Carolina, a company with 85 employees, 19,000 customers, and over $10 million in annual sales. I share a ten step process for building a company from scratch to over one million dollars in annual sales. I share everything I’ve learned about opportunity evaluation, raising investment and venture capital, product development, marketing, web marketing, web 2.0, online advertising, sales, finance, attracting and retaining superstars, managing a team, managing projects, setting goals, building systems, and scaling a company. I wrote the book with a desire to make this information accessible to anyone who wants to become a successful entrepreneur. This McGraw-Hill edition is fully updated from the original self-published edition from 2003.
Would you buy a copy or multiple copies of the book yourself today as well as spread the word to as many friends and colleagues as possible today? The book costs just $11.53 on Amazon.
All the proceeds from the book are being donated to my non-profit organization, The Humanity Campaign, which works to reduce poverty and hunger by increasing access to education, healthcare, technology, and entrepreneurial opportunity. You can read a recent article from the Raleigh News & Observer about these efforts at http://www.newsobserver.com/business/story/900111.html.
If you buy the book today, I’ll send you additional gifts including videos from me on how to raise venture capital and how our generation can change the world and bonuses from my entrepreneur friends Derek Gehl, Buck Rizvi, Carlos Garcia, and Shawn Casey. Just forward the Amazon receipt to bonus[at]zeromillion.com to receive the gifts.
If you want to buy multiple copies for your friends, company, or local libraries–I am providing additional bonuses. If you buy five copies you’ll receive a video from me on how to access the world of institutional capital. If you buy 25 copies you’ll receive a signed copy of the original version of the book. If you buy 50 copies you’ll get a 15 minute strategy phone call with me. If you buy 250 copies I’ll invite you to visit me on-site in Durham for a day-long mastermind strategy session with the other large buyers. If you buy 500 copies, I’ll invite you to join my mastermind group of millionaire entrepreneurs for a quarterly meeting. You can buy multiple copies here on Amazon .
In the message I sent yesterday, I shared the real reason I am doing this…
But as I mentioned above, I need your help today to get the book to #1 on Amazon.com and have a chance to reach the weekly New York Times Bestseller List. Here are a few things you can do…
Thank you very, very much for your help and assistance. I sincerely appreciate your help with Zero to One Million and look forward to working with you for many decades to change the world together. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can be of any assistance whatsoever to you now or in the future.
Love, hope, peace, prosperity…
P.S. – Thank you very very much for your help!
