Ian started affiliate marketing in 2000, he started selling books on eBay, after his parent kicked him out of the house because he refused to continue schooling, and he was 19 at that time.
He started working three jobs, 7 days a week, he started with google “how to make more money” then he started eBay drop shipping that was when he started making money, the major issue he had with eBay was that he was not able to handle customers and this was introduced him to Zugle ads, which started him on google ads, they gave him a tax offer and showed him strategically how to start.
He became and affiliate manager by accident, it came up just because he wanted to pay his bills. As a result of the bureaucratic nature of the 9-5 jobs he left and started fully as an affiliate marketer.

Ian made a program called Offers Snitch, it basically tracks the URL route, track any changes that occurs and lets him know if anything changes website. Ian created this as a result of the issues he had with affiliate networks shaving, or pausing an offer or replacing an offer without informing him, he eventually sold it off for a large sum of money.
