"I've had the great pleasure of working with Dustin, or as I called him "Coach Dutch", for 2 years. The impact he has had on not only my professional development, but personal development, is incredible. His patience, temperament and all round fun nature resulted in perfect environment to absorb what he was teaching. But for me, the defining factor was his ability to make every obstacle, challenge, or even quick task a lesson to learn from. Thanks Coach."

Robert KieltyAffiliate Manager, WP Engine

"I had both our traditional PR and affiliate teams attend Dustin’s bootcamp. For those experienced in affiliate, the bootcamp was the ideal class. It was a refresher and gave them the ability to cross reference their own processes and strategies as well as pull insights and new best practices based on Dustin’s extensive expertise. For the team members newer to affiliate, the bootcamp with the best possible primer and gave them a more in depth understanding of the full affiliate funnel and insights on how to further optimize for partnerships with the most coveted content sites. I also sat in on the bootcamp and found it to be engaging and entertaining. Dustin manages to impart a ton of data and tactical info while keeping it fun. His sense of humor and openness make it unintimidating so everyone, whether new to affiliate or veterans feel comfortable asking questions. I would highly recommend this bootcamp to anyone interested in learning more about affiliate marketing."

Jessy FofanaCEO, LaruePR

"This course is a great training tool for new managers, and for managers looking for new ideas to improve their program and sharpen their skills. The fraud prevention and audit processes he explains were eye opening and are going to save our program much more than I paid for the course. Best of all, the format of the course was really helpful for me to balance my current workload and still carve out time to learn."

Angie BurnettAffiliate Manager, Omnisend
