“Not only did I want to share my experiences of the last decade in helping businesses sell online, but I also wanted to implement a Social Proof Strategy for myself. Further building my online visibility not just through podcasts and video content but by writing and publishing a book of my own. It was when holidaying at a friends wedding on a yacht in Turkey that my drean to author a book become a reality as I found myself on the same vessel as ‘The Self Published Millionaire’, Joseph Alexander.”

Joseph Alexander addresses the gathered attendees.

“We believe everybody has a book in them and with Nik’s reputation as a Manchester influencer and socialite, I assumed he would want to write a novel on the secret side to Manchester nightlife and hospitality. What I did not expect to find was a marketing genius and intellectual heavyweight who wanted to write a simple and accessible book to help people find new ways to grow their businesses online and with social media. A book which he himself would be using as a lead magnet and business calling card for Social Proof Media”
