Today I have a real treat for you. I have created a video that shows you how I earned $10,573 in 72 hours via eBay. The image below shows my earnings for the last 31 days but most was earned in just 72 hours. Click the image for more info.

I also show you how you can create an interactive CD and I have a ton of other stuff to show you including everything you need to start selling information products on eBay, all 100% free.

All is revealed in the video that can be viewed by Clicking Here.

If you have any questions or comments please post them here.

      Hi John

      As a customer it was a refreshing change to get the product by post in less than 24 hours from buying, and I’m really looking forward to getting you input, and at $97 it was a total bargain.


    • Daniel Sumner

      Hey JT,

      Nice post again and well done on a successful 72 hour promo! It’s nice to see the eBay guy back!


    • Sally

      Hey John,

      Great to see you still making a packet on eBay!

      Just goes to show that selling cds on eBay can still make BIG money.

      Reminds me of the good old days when I sold on eBay a long time ago.

      Thanks for the free video, I am going to go watch it now, always wondered how you create an interactive cd.

      That was fantastic John!

      Not sure I should be saying this out loud….

      But I intend to meet up with my outsourcer (daughter) over the weekend…
      Can you guess what I’ll be showing her and getting her to do for a few dollars an hour πŸ˜‰
      (and once she’s master your CD’s I’ll get some of my own created for other products too)

      With the video and files you’ve given a complete business in a box that anyone could start out with!

      This is also a Brilliant lesson for more experienced marketers with their own products… as you’ve also taught people how to get a heap of affiliates making YOU even more cash!

      A real win/win … cos if someone starts getting just one Masterclass sale a month – that could be just what they were looking to make… and extra couple of hundred dollars a week…

      The experience could then lead them to build that up to a full time income. And I think it’s safe to say – if you had a hundred people making an extra $750 a month because of you – they’ll happily continue to be your affiliates for the long term, and you’ll be making enough to continue giving quality info and advice without having to work too hard for your share of the commissions…lol

      So loads of lessons and ideas coming from this post…
      Fantastic as ever John, and I hope some people who’ve not had much success as yet use this info and finally get the break they’ve been looking for πŸ™‚

      P.S. Did you notice we moved the Northallerton Meet Ups to a Saturday?… After THREE years I figured I’d try making it easier for you (and Dave) to pop along…lol

      • Daniel Sumner

        Hey Randy, is a good resource for eBay products. They supply all you need to get started!

        Lol PLUG

        Sorry JT!

        Dan πŸ™‚

        • Randy Smith

          LOL – Of course it is… If I’d have thought I could have mentioned it and used my affiliate link…hehe πŸ˜‰
          (or even pitched my own

          But I figured I said enough giving away an extra plan of action for people to consider in my initial reply…lol


    • Doug Prentice

      Hi John
      Another cracking blog post. I was minded to email you recently as to your lack of activity on eBay but thought it might be a bit cheeky. Now all is revealed. I was halfway towards doing some IM product on eBay but you’ve really got my juices going now.
      Where to fit it into the things to do list?
      This is why we keep coming back to you John.
      Best regards

    • Omar

      Great strategy.
      Got my wheels turning.


    • Richard Treanor-Smith

      Hello John

      Thanks for the free information and for producing a fantastic – “can – do” post! May you continue to prosper from your eBAY endeavours!

      Best wishes

    • Steve Wilkins

      Terrfic post and video John,

      I remember when I purchased your 90 day powerseller a few years ago which got me started selling on ebay, great to see your still doing so well with ebay!


    • Gwen Tanner

      John!!! What a wonderful offer you are … offering! I didn’t get your 72 Hours of Maddness CD from eBay because I bought your original online version. Whenever you have an offer I’m all ears! This is probably the nicest thing I’ve seen any internet marketer do (and today I’ve witnessed the low of the low in internet marketing!) – You are fan-tab-u-lous!!!


    • Edson

      Hi John,

      Great Post Man, I remember when you where selling on eBay years ago and it was because of you I still sell digital products on eBay today.

      Thanks Again,

      Edson Buchanan

    • Jacinta Dean

      Hi John,

      What perfect timing!

      I knew when I got your email about the ebay sale you were running an experiment.

      Now that the ‘The 100 Blog Comments Challenge’ is over I have 2 sheds and a spare room of stuff to sell on ebay before Christmas to get ready to shift house.

      Your video has just got my ‘bimbo’ brain πŸ˜† ticking over on how I can list build at the same time plus earn affiliate commissions.

      It was your ’90 Day Powerseller’ that first introduced me to you back in March 2008 and I have never looked back since!

      OK now I am off to make sure I have the dvd’s, covers, printer etc etc to get started.

      Thank you so much for the motivation I needed to get inspired!


      Jacinta πŸ˜€

      P.S I finally convinced my father to do that joint venture with me! Just took me 3 months since I had that call with you and talked about it! I think he can finally see what I am doing is more than a hobby! πŸ˜€

      P.P.S Just want to thank you again for being such an amazing mentor!! YOU ROCK!! πŸ˜€

    • Keith

      Hi John,

      What a great video you put together here, and for the best price of all, free! I remember a few years ago when I first bought The 90 Day Powerseller and that’s one of the main things that got me started selling information products on eBay. It takes a little more work these days to sell information products on eBay, but it still works!

      Best Regards,

      For info, not as a comment…

      Can’t access the site as it says not found.

      Can you please check.

      Many thanks.

    • Steve Howarth

      Hi John,

      Brilliant, excellent, first class!

      It’s great to get information from somebody who knows their business and even better if it’s free!

      As a newbie to Ebay how do I get over the ‘Buy Now’ problem? I believe this option is only available to established ‘Ebayers’.

      I didn’t see your original Ebay auction but if you were selling 50 copies I guess you must have been using the “Buy Now’ option.

      I’m also trying to figure out how all the bits and pieces you mention in the video fit together – I’ll have to go over it several times.

      Could we use Kunaki to dropship?

      Once again John, great video and look forward to your comments and further videos.

      Kindest regards,

      • John Thornhill

        Hi Steve,

        Yes, I used ‘buy now’ and yes you can use Kunaki but as I explain in the video it’s not something I’d do myself as it’s harder to ‘upsell’ and your eBay feedback is in the hands of someone else.

        • Steve Howarth

          Thanks for the quick reply.

          Is there any way round the “Buy Now’ option? What’s the alternative to selling multiple copies?

          Sorry to be a pain in the lower regions!


          • John Thornhill

            Not really, buy now is the best way to go.

    • Marc Milburn

      Hey John,

      Wow, what a great blog post. I think this is a really valuable insight into what really goes on ‘behind the scenes’ in information marketing, and it’s going to prove useful to a lot of people!

      Plus you’ve even given us a smart ‘business in a box’ which will literally just plug and play, thanks to the power of eBay.

      Great stuff.. keep up the good work!
      – Marc

      P.s. Those commissions I owe you, they’re coming out this week. I’ve finally sussed the PayPal/Infusion link! πŸ™‚

    • Mike

      John, it was great to go behind the scenes with you in your video. You present the material in such a way, as if we’re right there with you getting the scoop on how to do this. That level of detail is invaluable!

      I bought the 90-day Powerseller Challenge CD a couple of years ago, so now it’s time to act on it and get the affiliate angle going!


    • Ed

      Hey John,

      Great video, on this you know eBay businesses can be a nightmare to get up and running, but in the information markets, as you showed in the video, its just ma matter of getting it all in place and biding your time for the ‘viral’ effect to kick in on the back end sales commissions!

      Great insight on how the system works1

      Thanks John….Ed AKA John.

    • Toni

      This is so great this video, just asking can this be promoted on ebay?? Do you need a web site??? I understand the click bank but do you need a web site or can you do it on ebay, and I guess you can posted and waite for someone buy???

    • Steve Pittges


      Thanks for the video’s althought in listing to a website and editing the 4 items is a bit foggy on my part.
      I was searching for the info on your other sites as I bought the 72 hr pkg.
      Now you mention the expressions html editor and can’t seem to find that link or another inexpensive html editor.
      Also I thought you said something about including a web site in the purchase other than using your ebook site.
      I am a big fan of your instructions but can’t afford tutoring on
      Thanks tons

      • John Thornhill

        Hi Steve,

        You can get Expression Web here:

        As you have the 72 hour package check out the video tutorials in as it will show you all you need to know about setting things up with eBay.

        If there’s anything else you need help with let me know.

    • Don Maisey

      Hi John,

      After struggling to get IE8 to display your video without success, I switched to Firefox and watched with great interest. A most helpful video that I will most certainly put into practice.

      Thanks once again for helping so many people, including me.


    • Mike

      Very well done again John. You are a real success and inspiration to so many people here. keep up the good work.

      And thanks again,


    • Shane

      Very well done John. You always seem to blow my mind with the ways that you can bring in the money.Nice work and thanks as always for the great post.


    • Chris

      Hi John

      Not directly relevant, but as a customer of several of your products, including a premier membership on, I was wondering what your plans were for that website – it’s been 6 months since any update, and I don’t believe the “major changes” you promised were to actually stop work on the website πŸ˜‰

      Thanks and Regards

    • Eamon

      Hi John,

      Thanks for the chance to get on board with this ridiculously low offer. But then again you always know how to treat your visitors.

      I’ve missed out a bit this 10 days, was off on holidays πŸ™‚ I see the package has arrived, so I’m off to dig in.

      Good stuff your doing here John, catch you later.


    • Tom Harvey


      Great post and a really useful technique with the upsell CD inclusion. I’ve looked at transposing products onto CD for Ebay but was going to run through Kunaki but now you have pointed out otherwise I can see the benefits in not doing so (feedback & upsells) – thanks for the tips!!
      Speak soon


    • Steve Deerfield

      Hi John, this is extremely generous and a huge boost for myself and other marketers who may be interested in ebay. Your video + the 90 powerseller challenge is a real “business in a box” and I can’t thank you enough for investing your time and skills this way. Thanks John, Steve D.

    • Jun Yuan Lim

      Hey John

      What a great video you have got here… And your achievement really inspired me! Now I am in the midst of creating my very first video digital product to sell on eBay…

      There’s something I like to seek your advice – With regard to the listing of the auction item, is there any specific day (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.) and/or specific time to put up the auction such that it will generate the most response?

      And also as to the number of days in which we should run the auction for – Is there any preferences? (I heard that having an auction for 3 days work better than having it for 7 or even 10 days. How true is it?)

      Finally, I am from Singapore – Should I list pay the extra $0.50 to get International Site Visibility for my auction listing? What’s your advice?

      Appreciate your help… Thanks so much for your time! πŸ™‚

      Hi John,
      What a awesome Freebie for anyone that is interested in getting started selling info products on auction sites. As I’ve heard it said you are the go to guy.

    • Vova Sirotin

      Hey John,
      You were the one who actually guided me through eBay back in 2005. Nice to see you again on eBay and thanks for such an amazing and valuable video.


    • Justin Dupre


      Very informative and excellent video presentation you put together there. I really much enjoyed it. Keep up the great work!

    • Ray Houghton

      (Web site still “Under Construction”, as of yesterday).

      Hi John,
      I started your “Masterclass” but finances dictated that I wait a while.
      I have been able to study your 7 day mini course and the Roadmap series and have learned a lot.

      What I think a lot of us need is what you son simply explained in the 90 Day Challenge/Masterclass eBay re-branding video. We need to start with a Mentor, making something on eBay with good, trustworthy and respected products.

      One question, (I am already signed up in your Affiliate Program) and that is – once the Masterclass Course is sold through our Affiliate link, I guess we have to wait the 30 weeks (or more to get the Commission?

      Can I sell your many other products in the mean time to Start an Online Income right away?

      “Talk to you soon”,


    • NBsteve

      Hi John

      Just to say thanks for the great offer. It’s seems I’m fated to do it your way πŸ™‚

      Bought this on eBay back in 2005/6 I think it was, but never really understood what I was doing. A link from Jim Cockrum send me here and away we go again.

      Great blog and enjoying your honesty.


    • Seamus


      This is a fascinating offer, and I’ve watched your videos, downloaded everything associated, and it makes sense. You win when someone signs up for your MasterClass and we win with the affiliate commission.

      Since I already have a Clickbank affiliate account, would I need anything else to promote your 90-day Powerseller Challenge CD .. and is it free? I see you still have a webpage selling it.. confused. I also saw mention by Ray above, of being signed up for your affiliate program.. is this something extra?

      Sorry, I’m not one of your ‘inner circle’ and seems everyone above is already intimately familiar with your offerings..

      Are the materials and info in your instruction videos all that’s needed to get started tomorrow, or is a purchase needed?

    • Seamus


      This is exciting stuff. Not just this ‘gift’ here, but your whole internet marketing universe, so to speak. I’ve been reading your posts going way back, bookmarking all associated sites and links.. my wife thinks I’m crazy, having spent about 20 HOURS reading and reading in a marathon session. I’m riveted to my Mac…but maybe I’m crazy like a fox, having discovered some low hanging grapes that seem to be an insider secret? I think I’m going to start with your Mentorship Monthly. Will also begin following your steps outlined above with your Power Seller Challenge and rebranding. Thanks for the above links to point me in the right direction.
