Phoenix-based entrepreneur-extraordinaire wins international recognition as a “millionaire-maker,” helping people in dozens of different businesses turn their ideas into fortunes
Entrepreneur Magazine says that Dan Kennedy has “at least 101 moneymaking ideas for any business owner.”
‘Millionaire-Maker’ Dan Kennedy moves with remarkable ease from one very different field to another, working with clients in 62 different businesses, industries and professions, earning as much as $250,000.00 in a single month providing unusual direct-response advertising and direct marketing advice, strategy, copywriting and marketing materials, video production and infomercials, and profit improvement systems.
Kennedy’s clients include everything from sole entrepreneurs to huge corporations. Here are just a few examples – there’s the husband-and-wife couple who came to Dan with an idea, a mountain of debt, and failing advertising. Less than two years later, they have zero debt and a home-based mail-order business generating over 200 000.00 a month at about a 40% profit margin. Or, there’s the now-giant Guthy-Renker Corporation, famous for its celebrity infomercials with Victoria Principal and Vanna White, and its Tony Robbins infomercials. Guthy-Renker is a 200-million dollar+ a year business now, and Dan’s been a key member of their brain trust since their very first infomercial (Think And Grow Rich). Or there’s U.S. Gold, a company that has twice increased its sales by millions with Dan Kennedy provided marketing breakthroughs. And the list goes on and on and on.
Kennedy is the “hidden genius” behind full-page magazine advertisements you’ve undoubtedly seen, direct-mail campaigns you’ve received and TV infomercials you’ve seen. In addition to all the advertising and direct-mail Dan prepares for his own products, services and businesses, there are hundreds of clients using marketing materials Dan has prepared for them. His full-page ads have appeared and do appear in magazines like Inc., Success, Entrepreneur, Moneymaking Opportunities, Nations Business, the airline magazines, the tabloids, USA TODAY, The Wall Street Journal, and countless trade magazines. One of his client’s full-page ads is now in its 10th consecutive month, appearing in over a dozen national magazines. In any given month, clients spend over 1/2-million dollars running ads, much more mailing sales letters, and still more airing infomercials that Dan has developed.
And, Dan is one of the most popular, in-demand speakers on marketing-related topics. Ironically for a marketing guru, Kennedy gets almost all of his clients with no marketing! Some come to him after hearing him speak – in 1995, he addressed over 200,000 people, including audiences of thousands in many cities, in his 5th year on tour with famous motivationalist ZIG ZIGLAR. Others come after getting and reading one of his books available in bookstores, receiving his newsletter or listening to his cassettes. But most are referred to him.
KENNEDY’S “NO BS” APPROACH AGGRAVATES MANY, BUT ENRICHES THOSE WHO ACT ON HIS ADVICE
Kennedy is not easy to do business with. He maintains a grueling schedule of speaking, consulting, writing, managing his own business, and producing infomercials, so he’s rarely in his office, almost never takes incoming calls – new client-candidates are usually asked to submit information by FAX before getting a telephone appointment with him, he’s militantly resistant to having his time wasted and has “fired clients” on occasion for doing so. He is blunt, straightforward, and almost totally lacking in diplomacy.
He’s also expensive. Most new client relationships begin with one-day consultations starting at $7,800.00. Consulting by the hour is usually $850.00. If a relationship progresses beyond that, he not only gets fees, he gets royalties tied to the client’s revenues linked to his contributions, for as long as the materials or systems he provides are used. As a result, Kennedy routinely gets sizeable royalty checks every month from many clients, for work he did months or even years ago.
Still, he has a number of clients who have been with him for as long as ten years, including some who simply will not make a marketing-related move without his guidance.
Thousands of smart marketers in 62 different industries all sing the praises of Dan Kennedy. Including some of the planet’s top Internet marketers like Marlon Sanders, Terry Dean and Yanik Silver. (In fact, Yanik pays $10,000.00+ each year to get advice from Dan.)
He truly is the ‘guru’ of other ‘gurus’!
