THE METEORIC RISE OF A ONCE-AFFILIATE MARKETER
Codewise is a big name in the digital marketing industry, boasting an impressive portfolio of traffic source Zeropark and tracking software Voluum. It was voted as the second fastest-growing company in Europe. And all without VC funding.
But the journey has been far from smooth sailing for owner Rob Gryn. In this article published on Medium, he openly discusses:
- How he funded Codewise with his affiliate marketing endeavours.
- Losing $300k in four hours.
- How his poker face ousted two of the four co-founders, and why the third co-founder quit.
- Struggling with insomnia and extreme burnout.
- Facing the biggest challenge of all – leaving the affiliate mindset behind
- Plus lessons and reflections on hiring, work culture and much, much more.
Fire up the coffee machine – this bad boy is a length piece. But a must-read.
