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 ReeseNick 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.

Other projects of Nick’s include: Becoming Bold (on the back burner), Art of Blog, and Skip Winter Conference.

    Great Insights! Love it!

  4. David: You really do have a knack for finding great guests!  I sooooo enjoyed this interview with Nick — honestly, I wish that the chat could have gone on for quite a bit longer — and I hope that you have him back again in the near future to give a sort of “online workshop” in affiliate marketing.  I’d be willing to bet that a detailed hour long workshop from Nick would be as informative (or more so) than any of the books that are out there on the subject.

    1. Oh!  And Nick?  I do know that you’ve written a book about affiliate marketing.  I was referring to all those other books that are out there…

      And I really would be quite interested in seeing you come back to RISE for an online workshop of some sort.

  5. Wil says:

    Hey David, 

    Great interview! Can you post any of the 40+ Affiliate Marketing focused sites that Nick mentions in the interview? Didnt see any on his blog/site.


    1. David Siteman Garland says:

      Wil – Let me look into that not 100% sure…I want to say Nick mentioned a couple during the interview (might be wrong)….
