Tyler is a brilliant marketer. He's also incredibly helpful and responsive. I've asked him to be an advisor at both of my last two companies and he's been a critical part of our success. I can't recommend him highly enough; you want this guy on your team.
Founder of a company Tyler Willis advised
Tyler is an expert at social media, online marketing and product growth. He's also very connected in Silicon Valley. He's fun to work with and a great guy.
Tyler has been an invaluable resource and an incredible angel. His style is very entrepreneur-friendly and he is generous with his time; quickly providing insightful, actionable guidance any time I asked. Tyler also has a great network which he readily opens for the companies he works with. It is an absolute pleasure to work with Tyler.
CEO of ShopPad. Previously: SuperPoke (acquired by Slide), CEO Viddyou (acquired by Motionbox).
Tyler was one of our first investors. He invested before we even had a product and offered us an incredible amount of help and support over several years and up to our Series A round with Founder's Fund. Even as we've added a lot of world-class investors and advisors, I still keep Tyler on speed-dial.

What I Do
I usually help with growth or marketing because of my experience with Involver, BranchOut, Hired and others. As an advisor, I can be exceptionally active (I only advise one company at a time). As an investor, I provide help as requested.
Ran customer acquisition and marketing at Involver (which grew to 1MM+ customers at the time of the acquisition by Oracle in 2012). At Unified, I managed all partner relationships (including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn) and led the acquisitions of both Awe.sm and Pagelever. I advised Branchout (used by 30MM+ people) and Hired (processed $5B+ in job offers) on growth.
