Even though I’ve been online for 10+ years now and I’ve learned quite a lot of things during these years struggling (mostly) to make a living of it, it was always very difficult for me to come up with a good piece of content that someone would actually enjoy reading.
So, Here I am today, trying to put something decent togheter, about me and my journey online:
I’m Alex. A 28 year old dude, born & living in a poor country – Romania who makes a living on the internet. I don’t have a long and boring life story on how I got where I am today, but I can tell you this:
It’s NOT easy! In fact, the whole secret is to keep your focus and never stop working hard.
I started early (at 14 years old), as a freelance web & graphic designer and
I made my first 5 bucks selling a one page website to a guy from India that was selling some sort of health & fitness certifications.
Not to many people were talking about internet marketing back then plus I’ve always been skeptical about this Online “thing”, so for the first few years I’ve struggled with few hundred bucks a month selling my design services on different freelance websites.
My first real attempt to get into this niches was in 2007 (I was making around $3000 a month at that time) working like a zombie for up to 17 hours a day. At that moment I had two classified websites, an ecommerce store, was working for two US based companies as an SEO consultant and a good rentacoder account that was generating me some decent income.
It was extremly exhausting and I basicly had no time to spend on my real life or university – I was always online, building links and designing web pages.
So, I had to do something. I had to actually “think” my online business.
I’ve always been a creative guy so it took me few days to come up with a decent affiliate campaign – I started offering my services for FREE to all sorts of people and companies if they would have purchased a hosting package through my affiliate link.
And it worked! I was making $1.500+ a month from my hostgator affiliate account but I was only working few hours a week – That’s when the whole thing started to get real.
From that day and till the moment of writing this article, I’ve put all my time and energy into it.
Here’s what happened next:
- In 2008 I found Warrior Forum and moved all my gigs on their WSO section
- In 2009 I tried many times to build my list and get into email marketing
- 2010 – Started working with some of the biggest marketers in the market and I was already an “expert” in many fields (even though I wasn’t making the profits I was looking for).
- Early 2011 – Launched my first product Online and had my first 5 figures month after flipping the whole thing.
- End of 2011 – I gave up university (I was studying laws – 4th year) and moved my focus to my internet business.
- Till the end of 2013 I kept launching graphics packages and manage to get to mid 5 figures a month in sales.
- 2014 – Got into teespring (facebook marketing) and launched my first software – had my first 6 figures month thanks to that.
- Mid 2014 – I was working with a team of 4 developers, launching software after software and started 2 big projects (hypetutor is one of them).
- Few months ago, in 2015 I had my first $300.000+ month, part of that thanks to my CopyBuilder launch.
- Right now I have a small team of 20+ people helping me with everything I do online.
Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Blogs, WSOs, SEO and what not … I’ve tried and struggled with all of them with some sort of results from each – It took me years of hard work and failures to understand and crack the whole code.
But it paid off.
And now, I’m polishing my biggest project – Hype Tutor. A $100k+ (in development) project that will be finished and released to the public early 2016.
In fact, That’s the reason why you are reading this blog post – I wanna move to a whole new LEVEL!
I didn’t win the lottery, I don’t drive a fancy car, and I’m not super famous.
What I do have is a decent business, and a lot of experience in this industry. The purpose of HypeTutor and this blog is to share all those things with you.
I’ll be transparent and will start sharing everything I’ve learned in all these years with you, through this blog.
