Guest speakers

James Klobasa

In the way a Hollywood movie comes out with its trailers well before-hand, gaining momentum and popularity for the movie to ensure it sells out on opening day, James is a product launch manager, helping his clients come up with the killer product idea and launch it online with much success.
James has achieved phemonmenal results including earning his clients $103k in five days, and $130k in cash + $50k/mth passive income recurring.
He has now launched his own offline company this way, supplying services into the construction industry, initially locally on the Sunshine Coast, and now as a national supplier. The methods are clearly very powerful and some of the benefits for the client include creating masses of raving fans, huge market authority and an on-flow of market knowledge leading to future product development.

James has worked with many large global brands including Yamaha, Suzuki, Tooheys, Cantel & MasterCraft in Australia, USA, South Africa, Japan and Canada.

He is focused on delivering results for others through proven marketing tactics & strategies and looks forward to sharing his top tips on how you too can successfully launch a product online at this event.
