Today on The Rise To The Top: The #1 Non-Boring Business Show: So, last week Lewis Howes revealed how he and his business partner Sean Malarkey created his latest product and launched it to $400,000 in sales in one month (actually, as today’s guest quickly notes, it is now over $500,000). Wow. Immediately, I became curious (and so did many of you) about the technology and behind-the-scenes that goes into an amazing launch. Enter, Sean “the backend” (insert joke here) Malarkey, who reveals today the exact technology behind the launch, easy-to-use tools, what they tested and learned, and much more. Trust me, it is ridiculously full of awesome.

I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ’em out.

    very awesome interview! Love seeing the ‘behinds the scenes’ for product launches

    • David Siteman Garland

      Thanks! much more to come 🙂

  • This was a great video and Sean went over a lot of good information. Really nice to see him go into depth of the behind the scene efforts. Thanks for doing this interview David.

    • David Siteman Garland

      Thanks buddy, glad you picked up some stuff 🙂

    • Thanks Justice. Hope you got a few nuggets out of it!

  • Awesome interview! I stumbled across your site for the first time for the Lewis Howes interview and love the show so far. We are working on a membership site now and were planning on using Paypal but after listening to Sean, I’m definitely going to take a hard look at Clickbank. We weren’t planning on doing much with affiliate promotion to start, but I get the feeling Clickbank still might be the better option. Do you think Paypal would be the better option if you are not promoting via affiliates?

    (quick suggestion: I clicked on one of images below the interview and it cut the video and took me to a separate page. might be a good spot for a lightbox..we use the ‘fancybox for wordpress’ plugin.)

    • Hey Adam,

      I would definitely caution against just using Paypal. Never put all your eggs in one basket – especially Paypal…The problems arise with Paypal when you see a sudden rise in business and your products are of the digital variety.  

      Clickbank will be fine for you, If you have a good product other affiliates will find it on Clickbank and start selling it for you.

    • David Siteman Garland

      Thanks Adam. Re: suggestion: Great point. We normally don’t embed screenshots so we just kinda put them up. I’ve passed this onto my tech peeps 🙂

    • I had my Paypal account frozen for almost five months and only got it sorted after jumping through ridiculous amounts of hoops and several phone calls. I ‘d definitely go with click bank over Paypal personally

  • Sean and David.
    This was super awesome.  Thank you both for the interview.  I don’t even have any questions.

    • Thanks Kerwin – Glad you liked it!

    • David Siteman Garland

      Hah, I’ll take the question-less as a good thing 🙂

  • I love interviews like this where the curtain is pulled back.  With the vast amount of tools on the internet, it is great to hear a successful entrepreneur give us the “why” and “how” it works.  It’s definitely a great way to start 2012!

    • David Siteman Garland

      Great point, Keith. Glad you enjoyed it.

  • Kris

    More great info from Mr. Sean Malarky!!    What an opportunity to get the inside scope. . the “no header” tip itself was worth the price of admission!!  Great interview- thanks Sean!

    • David Siteman Garland

      I was fascinated by the “no header” as well. So cool. You never know until you test, eh?
