Nick is responsible for generating over $10M+ in revenue each month for his clients. What if I told you that one site alone can make or break your business in many ways. When sites have amazing viral success, it's a great story to share. When they fail, it can hurt for a long time. Nick shared his successes in broadening his reach through new products and services—not dependent on Google—such as Reddit. Nick has spent a lot of time in what can appear to be a complex but welcoming community and today shares his insight into being a real part of this ever-growing community. 

Nick and I discuss...

  • What Revitrage Does
  • Revenue generated for his clients and commissions paid to him.
  • What Reddit is?
  • Success that he's seen on Reddit
  • How to get involved in the Reddit community
  • The ways smart marketers and freelancers are using Reddit to drive traffic and generate leads
  • The differences between “brand platforms” (like Facebook) and “community platforms” like Reddit.
  • The types of content that perform best on community platforms.
  • Tip: Cool "people finder" tool I use called Rocket Reach
  • and much more!

I had the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam earlier this year for a Lenovo event we hosted with some EU colleagues. Before my travels I read an article in Travel Noire. There’s so much more to Amsterdam than weed culture, but there’s no denying that it’s a huge draw. I wanted to dive deeper and reached out to Co-founder Taraq who was happy to have us use his place as our venue.

Water & Brood’s mantra is Good Food, No Bullshit”. It’s a chic restaurant located near many of Amsterdam’s famous museums and attractions where owners and brothers Rachid and Taraq Hok-Ahin serve everything from chicken and waffles and acai bowls to dishes inspired by their Surinamese roots.

Taraq and I cover:

  • Going to school with a greater purpose
  • How he got into the restaurant business
  • The challenges of opening and running a restaurant business
  • Logistics considerations in the restaurant business (margins, competition, menu, product, etc..)
  • Difference between a coffeeshop which sells weed and cafe
  • and more!
