Mr. X
Confirmed for 2017

Who is Mr X, and why did he agree to break his silence for the first time?

Mr. X: Once in a generation comes an advertising copywriter who redefines success, and in the age of the internet, that man is a person we call, “Mr X”. Have you heard of him? Chances are not, for Mr X has never presented his secrets in public before. Yet if you have used the internet, you have seen his work. Every single day, ads written by Mr X appear on every major site on the web. While most business owners are happy if a sales letter reaches 10 million in sales in it’s lifetime, Mr X has written 4 unique sales letters that have reached 10 million dollars in sales in a single month. While it’s usually only musicians who crack the 100 million view mark on videos, Mr X has created one video that has watched by 129 million people, and it was an advertisement! The products he writes for are in the hands of millions of people, and the revenue he generates is unmatched by perhaps any other writer in internet history. With this in mind, it may not surprise you that Mr X does not speak at events, nor is he available for freelance work. Who is Mr X, and why did he agree to break his silence for the first time? Both will be revealed on November 3rd, at Genius Network. And we suggest you do not miss this presentation for anything!
