TeeCon Barcelona: Dan Nikas

Dan from Down Under

Meet Dan, a Springer from Australia who will be amongst the star studded lineup presenting at TeeCon Barcelona!

Teecon Europe is the only place to be this year if you want to take your business to the next level – there’s no other place where you will have the ability to gain invaluable insights and get advice directly from industry leaders like Dan! Read on to discover a little bit more about his Springing history so far, but be sure to grab your TeeCon ticket HERE to meet him in person this June!

What was your first large successful campaign? Were you surprised?

My first successful campaign was in the Nurse niche, the design I came up with has spawned hundreds of copy cats and sold 521 units. The Nurse category was the first niche I ever targeted and had huge success on what I think was around my 10th campaign. At the time 521 units sold was huge as that was just from one 14 day run, and proved to me that I had a future in online marketing.

In which countries are most of your sales happening at the moment?

At the moment I am selling most units in Germany and the United Kingdom.

It’s proven that successful people often have routines that they follow. What are some routines that you have in your life that you think have allowed you to be successful?

My life is based around goals. Both personal and business. My goals are set for years, months, weeks and hours.

My current daily routine looks like this:

  • 5:30am: Wake up and exercise.
  • 6:30-9:00am: Family time
  • 9:00am: I get to my office, review my to-do list, then start work!

I break my work day up in 1 hour blocks. I stay on task for 1 hour without distractions, then take a small 5 minute break to stretch and walk around.

I follow this until I finish work at 5pm. During the work day I take a small break for lunch and drink plenty of water.

Between 5pm and 9pm I spend more time with my family.

I then usually head to bed and read for about 30mins. At the moment I am reading Dotcom Secrets by Russell Brunson.

If you look back at your selling over the last couple of years, what would you have done differently?

I would have spent more time doing data analysis and building assets. Initially it was easy money (really easy) so all I measured was money in versus money out. I hate to think how much money I left on the table using that method.

Now I spend a lot more time measuring conversions and researching what is actually working.

What are some of the most common mistakes you see new sellers make?

They take bits and pieces of advice from various people/coaches and try and blend it into there own strategy. Instead, what they need to do is stop advice shopping and listen to one successful person. Within our Teeninja training my partner Luuk and I show students everything that we do to be successful, yet only about 20% of our students actually follow our training to the letter and make good money. It confuses me everyday!

If you weren’t selling online, what do you think you would be doing?

I would probably still a Detective within the Police, which I did for 17 years before focusing on Internet marketing full time.

Thanks Dan, see you at TEECON BARCELONA
