When I heard about Nick Reese around a year ago, I knew I had to get him on the show. Why? Well for one thing, he is super successful (and humble): $1,000,000+ in sales over the past year. Secondly, he has a really interesting business model we can all learn from. Third is that he is extremely passionate. Fourth is that he is small…it is just him, a partner and a few contractors. Lastly, he is awesome at explaining things.
In this interview, Nick explains (super candidly) the ins and outs of his business and lots of advice for unconventional Internet entrepreneurs like all of us. Enjoy!
Oh, and if you need a solid primer on everything he has learned and want to give affiliate marketing a really good shot, I recommend his ebook How To Turn Traffic & Trust Into Sales (affiliate).
About Today’s Guest, Nick Reese:
Nick Reese is a strategic thinker, change maker, and over happy dude. He thoroughly enjoys challenging himself to new and unusual experiences. Some of his craziest experiences to date include, climbing Huayna Picchu (aka the hike of death) in the rain, experiencing a Kambo & Ayahuasca ritual in Peru, and being featured in the Austin American Statesman for sliding in the mud at ACL.
In 2010, NYT Best Seller, Chris Brogan approached Nick about writing a book on affiliate marketing. He jumped on board and Traffic and Trust is the end result. Traffic and Trust was written from the ground up to be the perfect beginners guide as it includes a planning guide and blue print to get even the most un-tech-savvy started online. If you are interested in learning more pickup the free chapter on mutual value.
