Yanik Silver

It’s such a pleasure to me to have a chance to talk with a well-known entrepreneur like Yanik Silver.

Yanik has been selling since he was a teenager – his father enlisted him early on to help sell medical devices. That was some time ago, and since then Yanik has taken eight different products to the million dollar sales mark. And he’s not stopping any time soon. These days, in addition to running his business, he hosts a popular annual conference, runs an exclusive business mastermind group, and pals around with Richard Branson.

Listen now and you’ll hear Yanik and I talk about:

  • (01:45) Introductions
  • (03:25) How the Maverick organization started
  • (07:40) Long form sales letters and long form copy
  • (10:50) How Yanik sold his first information products
  • (12:00) How Yanik would recommend selling information products today
  • (16:00) Why Yanik’s life is better at 40
  • (20:00) Things Yanik learned from Sir Richard Branson
  • (23:00) Yanik’s advice for people who haven’t yet started a business
  • (29:00) The 10th Annual Underground Event
  • (35:30) Yanik turns the tables and interviews me
  • (36:50) How Yanik got his first bit of revenue

(Yanik is just one of the many thought leaders we’ve had on the Bright Ideas podcast. Check out some others here.)

  • Just couple a days ago I’ve found out about BrightIdeas website – and I already listened 5 or 6 podcasts. This one is one of my favourite until now. Thank you so much Trent – you’re doing something really valuable here!

    • Jovica, welcome to my blog, and thank you very much for the praise. I’m stoked to have you in our community 🙂

      What type of business are you in?

      • Hey Trent!

        Yes, I’m excited to go over all the podcasts you’ve made. I’m an IT guy (work as devops engineer/web developer), and at the moment I’m in phase of starting my first information product. I am trying to validate some of my ideas these days actually.

        Most of all, I like the interviews where guests talk real world stories about reaching their success – because I find it hard to keep up the good work and motivation on a project as the time goes. That’s why I even started a weekly newsletter recently, where I share inspirational success stories from startups world.

        Cheers,
        Jovica
