How much money did Daniel make from those products?
Daniel has reported on his earnings in a series of Reddit posts:
- Released an ebook: $20K sales in the first 3 days
- I recorded myself giving a short presentation and sold $14,379 worth of videos in the first day
- I sold $100K worth of videos and PDFs in 4 months
Per the last post, most of Daniel’s customers came through Twitter:
The breakdown seems to be about $80k in revenue from the AWS ebook, and $20k from the Twitter Audience video course.
Daniel had a co-author for the ebook so he would have had to split some of the profit there, plus the products are sold on a platform called Gumroad which has some fees.

How did Daniel get started?
Here’s how he tells the story on Reddit:
As per Daniel’s LinkedIn, he worked at Amazon Web Services for 8 years, so that made him well-qualified to write a book on the topic.
Given his success growing his own Twitter account so fast, it makes sense that he’d turn that expertise into an information product as well.
