Tyler’s journey was no quick rise to wealth and fame. Starting in 2007, after having been exposed to the idea of affiliate marketing for some time, Tyler decided to take a whack at it. Only by early 2009 did he start to see ‘good months’.
After jumping in and out of the game for a couple of years, Tyler decided to take one more stab at affiliate marketing. In late 2011 his performance and profit started to jump, and by 2012, he became what he calls ‘one of those guys’ with huge numbers showing up in his campaign summaries.
He made it big, and you can read all about it in his “From Failure to Success” in his post here!
