Nick Smith, who filled the role of Publisher of Revenue Magazine since it’s inception, has stepped down from his post.
According to a post on the Revenue Magazine blog by Editor Lisa Picarille, Nick will “be working on an innovative television project with a new media component. His new job as sales director at Morphogenix is the opportunity of a lifetime that he couldn’t pass up.”
Good for Nick, but a shame for affiliate marketing. He built Revenue Magazine into a staple for the industry and has certainly left his footprint.
Back when word initially spread about the launch of an affiliate marketing magazine, I’ve got to admit that I was among the skeptics. I didn’t know Nick, and one of the early faces of the project was Herby Olschewski, who was something of an infamous character in the affiliate marketing space.
But shortly after the magazine launched, Herby disappeared and the magazine started taking off. Nick and his talented supporting staff have built a great resource for affiliate marketers, one that also serves as a sharp piece of PR for the industry.
Thanks to Nick for all he has done, and best wishes to the Revenue gang to keep on keeping on.
