Our New Podcast Starts June 3rd! Plus, Welcome Chase Reeves

We have two big things to announce today.

First, we’re launching a podcast next Monday, June 3rd!

This is no ordinary business podcast. We’re shaking things up and taking a different approach from other shows.

You’ll get to hear what I mean starting next week. We’ll be releasing a brand new episode each day next week, starting with Monday’s episode on “finding your voice.”

If you’re building an online business or have been thinking about it, we would love you to save some time next week to experience the new show. We think you’ll like it, and we’d love to hear your feedback.

Be sure to signup here (if you haven’t already) to get the first episode as soon as it’s available.

Help Us Welcome Chase Reeves

We’re also announcing an exciting addition to the team today. Chase Reeves has officially joined Caleb and I full-time as our Creative Director.

We first started working with Chase about a year ago (June of 2012), and he quickly became an essential part of everything we’ve done since. He designed Think Traffic and Fizzle, and has pushed us in so many ways creatively. Fizzle wouldn’t be nearly as fun or effective without Chase.

Chase has been a core part of the Fizzle team for quite some time, and we’re happy to finally announce this publicly. He’ll be a central figure around here, and in every project we take on.

You’ll also hear a lot from Chase on the new podcast starting next week, and in upcoming blog posts here at Think Traffic. Read more about Chase and his approach to web design in this interview with Janelle Allen.

If you have a second today, help us welcome Chase in the comments below. Say hi, or ask a question, or poke fun at him a little, he likes that ;)

And don’t forget, our new podcast launches next week. Sign up for email updates and we’ll send you the first episode on Monday.

Oh, one more thing. I was on the fence about sharing this, but I’m going to anyway since it’s done. We made an “advertisement” for the podcast launch that was supposed to be in this blog post. But, the video didn’t turn out exactly how we intended. Instead of being funny, it turned out a little… weird. You can check it out here, but consider yourself warned.

The podcast itself isn’t weird, at least we don’t think so. Tune in next week to judge for yourself. Leave us a question about online business and we’ll try to answer on the show.

    Thanks, Corbett! I’ve been studying hard to make the cut to hang out with you and caleb. You guys have always been cool.

    Congratulations, if even possible, this site just got better!

    Can’t wait for the podcast too


  • Nicole Simon

    Are you doing a podcast or ‘something with audio which we will announce through a website / newsletter combo’? A podcast has a feed and is subscribable. Everything else is just …

    • http://pocketchanged.com Caleb Wojcik

      It will be a subscribable podcast as soon as the first episode is live on Monday. :)

    Hi Chase,

    You look absolutely gorgeous in your photo, but who’s the hairy dude you’re sat on?

    And you’re right chaps, the video did turn out weird…it leaves you feeling slightly awkward!!!

    Looking forward to the podcasts,


  • Kenny Hyder

    Congrats Chase!

    Hey Corbett,

    I was wondering when you guys are gonna start podcast in, can wait to check it out.

    I’ve had a lot succes with your traffic generation tips so this is gonna be on the top of my playlist.


  • Beatrix Willius

    Same here. Now I’m so sad ;-)

  • http://www.storybramble.com Stephanie

    Interesting video! I am happy to provide some acting lessons before the next one! Am looking forward to the podcast (email also not working for me).

  • http://jaredakers.com jared

    Looking forward to the podcast! Congrats to both; Think Traffic team for getting a great guy and Chase for joining a great team.


  • Kelley

    Really excited about the podcast! Corbett, your approach to everything here is truly unique so I’m sure the podcast will be no exception!

    Chase, welcome and you are a rock star designer. Looking forward to more of your work.

  • Chase Reeves

    To all who don’t think your email is working. It is, it’s just that you were already on the list to get the notification (because you’ve signed up before) :)

    Don’t worry. You’ll be one of the first to know.

  • http://wp-themes-pro.com Alexandre B

    Congratulations to Chase :)
    Analysing Think Traffic’s design helped me a lot to up my game in webdesign (homepage goal, etc.). So, a big thank you for that.

    Concerning the podcast, it’s a great idea. I can’t wait to listen to some new epic (audio) shit !

    All the best to you three ;)

  • http://anchortab.com Justin Westbrooks

    Excited to hear it! Always looking for more wisdom for my earholes. I’ll share with my team :)

  • http://christianmusicblog.com Nate Fancher

    Going in a Reevesish direction eh? LOVE IT.

  • http://www.vmlabs.bg Veso Mitev


    The video is indeed awkward…

    So, the podcast is really good idea! It will increase awareness and stuff, resulting in more people signing up, on paper.

    As a reader (and listener) I have two advices for the pool.

    1 – Please, not more than ONE person talk at the same time, considering there are more than 1 speakers in episode. Too many podcasts are incomprehensible thanks to this.

    2- Don’t make it 1 hour long PLEASE! I know the time flies when an interesting topic is being deconstructed, yet I don’t have that much time for each podcast. To the point – tight, constructive, effective.

    Oh, and – Welcome citizen Reeves! You have all that artistic qualities I tend to lack and I appreciate this :) I also like the realistic outlook of ThinkTraffic and I think you fit here pretty well!

    • Zack

      I listen to 3-hour long podcasts from Joe Rogan every other day. I think short podcasts skip essential details a lot of the time Veso.

  • http://www.thinkgrowlive.com Joan Harrison

    Congrats Chase, the team appears to be going from strength to strength, Good luck and best wishes to you all.

  • http://marysocoortiz.com Mary Soco


    Chase work is amazing! It’ll be great to see him around here.
    On Fizzle, he rocks!

    Welcome Chase!

  • http://www.metroswagger.com Brendan O’Hara

    Congratulations, Chase, from a fellow designer. Best of luck in the new role.

    Looking forward to the Podcast, gentlemen. Keep up the good work!

    “Wicker baskets” “Well, that is what they’re for, Corbett”

    Congrats Chase! Can’t wait for the podcast next week.

    • Chase Reeves

      Glad you got that, Ryan! I seems a little hard to hear… thx :)

  • http://www.smartbusinessrevolution.com John Corcoran

    Chase who? Oh yeah, that guy. Welcome officially, Chase. However, I say you won’t really have “made” it until Derek Halpern does an official “Mase Peeves” impression of you. I’m waiting for that.

    • http://fizzle.co Chase

      HA! Well played, John. Well. Played.

  • http://effortlessgent.com B

    Congrats, Mr. Reeves!

    Looking forward to the podcast, dudes.

  • http://superhooper.org Lara Eastburn

    Looking forward to the podcast. PLEASE let me know when I can get it in iTunes for my morning walks. I like to learn and get my exercise on at the same time, ya’ know. Take THAT, multitasking!

  • http://exceljet.net Dave Bruns

    Congrats, Chase, they’re lucky to have you!

    BTW, your son has your eyes. Pretty cool.

  • Zack

    You guys leave HUGE things out that would have me glued to your site.

    Details about how you tied the team together. Monetary splits, why it’s fair, how discussions go. That’s what I can learn from.

    While you have “good” daily tips, I would be blown away by more advanced in-depth detail.

    I’d rejoin Fizzle for that kinda info.

    You guys make an awesome team and what looks like a fun team.

    • http://fizzle.co Corbett Barr

      Hey Zack, the cool thing about the podcast is we’ll have a lot more room to talk about details like these. I think you’ll like the depth of the podcast, and we’d love to hear your feedback.

    • http://proertyventures.co.nz Nick

      Monetary splits (in general)

      1. Hire people who you respect and like.

      2. Make sure you’re paying everybody enough so money isn’t a concern any more and they can focus on doing great work.

      3. Incentivise the whole team based on results from there on. Equity, bonus… whatev.

      4. Loop.

      Fizzle is about the community as much as the courses. There are people on there building businesses, motivating each other and quitting their jobs right now. Fizzle gives you the tools and the community to push you through past the tipping point to where you have such good problems as needing to know how to effectively hire and compensate someone.

  • James Broderick

    Welcome aboard, Chase! I hope with you joining the team I can ask some questions about Thesis and how to navigate my way ’round. Really look forward to the podcast, guys.

    Keep rockin’ epic shit!

  • http://proertyventures.co.nz Nick

    Great hire. Now you guys can save the day.

    • http://www.crystalhadidian.com Crystal

      No one can teach what Chase has. It can’t be bottled or bearded.

    • Chase Reeves

      Ha! Thanks Crystal… though you may not have meant it as a compliment, I’ll take it as one!

  • Chase Reeves

    Thanks everyone! I’m thrilled to be working with these guys and glad to be serving y’all. It’s my story too. Cheers!
