My guest today was Michael Streko, co-founder of Knowem.com and owner of Streko Media, which operates a network of affiliate sites across multiple verticals.

In this podcast, Michael talks about:

  • His diverse marketing background and how he made the leap into opening a .com startup in crappy economic times
  • How he fell into organic search and affiliate marketing
  • His new site, Knowem.com, which checks the availability of a brand name, user name or vanity URL on 120 Popular Social Media Websites
  • Simple tips that are often overlooked that help sites get ranked better
  • Advice to newbie affiliate marketers
  • The dynamic person that has made the biggest impact on his life
  • What he would use a “Magical Do-Over” for, if he had the opportunity
  • How he got his Disabled-Veteran status
  • What attendees can expect from his upcoming speaking gig at Affiliate Summit East 2009 in NYC


  • Michael also becomes the first guest to participate in “Big Mouth's Big Ten Challenge”, which will now become a regular feature of the podcast.
