About Jeffvelmonte
Joined November 2015
I am Jeff, your online buddy to help you on how to sell online.

And did I say, I love to meet people, too.
Nice meeting you!

I am an engineer and an online entrepreneur. I am happily married to such a lovely wife who supports me all the way. I love God. I love life. I love to travel around the world. I am blessed to travel around the world because of my corporate work. One time, my wife and I spent 3 months in Europe.

I have been earning online for the last 7 years (since 2009). I was in my early 30’s when I first heard about internet marketing.

The idea of earning from the internet while you sleep is cool although in my case it was not really a walk in the park.

I encountered lots of setbacks but the biggest one is the lack of fund.

You see, I live in a 3rd world country where the minimum wage is around $100 per month.

A decent web host cost around $10/month.
A domain name cost around $10/year.
A decent autoresponder cost around $150/year or about $12/month.
Maybe you get the idea now.

(Side note: Please remember, I never know anything yet about wealthy affiliate free account where you can start a website with $0)

So I was left with no choice but to expand my business from its own earnings.

I started with whatever free I could find.
My free training comes from reading through free forum postings.
I needed to put lots of time and effort to do the trial and error process to see which things really work and which don’t.

I began to feel frustrated.

Who else would love to spend so much time on something with nothing to show at the end of the day? (zero income).

I feel tired and broke. :(

The only thing that keeps me going is having MY OWN DREAMS.

I know that if I can figure out how to sell online I will have the whole world as my oyster. I know that I am just a click away from being financially independent.

And then it happened.

I got my first sale.
It was a 50% commission from a $47 product I was promoting.
And then another sale, and then another.

The amount is not much.
But the reality that it is indeed possible to earn online is what excites me more.

Forward 7 years later….

My question has changed from is it really possible to sell online
to how can I scale up my online sales?

I have money now to invest to my business tools.
I have money to buy paid training to further improve my skills.
I have money to buy website traffic.

I am new to wealthy affiliate. I consider wealthy affiliate as a blessing.
My only regrets. I joined WA late.
I could have saved myself from all those trials and errors. I could have saved myself from buying one course after another.

Honestly, WA is all you need to succeed online. You get a website. You get a training. You get a great community. You can start as free member. Close your wallet and spend $0....

If you have not started your WA (and it is FREE to start), you should. Take it as an advice from the man who has been through the online marketing jungle.

As for me, it's time to pay it forward!
I'm looking to spend my time here in WA to help out the community in whatever way I can.

Again, I am Jeff. I’m glad to meet you.

If you have any questions about selling online, just add them in the comments. I'll do my best to help.

Jeff, nice to meet you. I only wish the web was around when I was 30! Now I have to learn all the technical stuff. Good thing I can use the programs on the computer as that's what my work entailed. But the background stuff - no. So I am on a steep learning curve. So my goal is to learn all this and travel some more and in more comfort than I did when young. Not that I would trade that for anything, but comfort is nice too. Keep in touch.

Hi Jeff, you've learned the hard ways which I think many Internet Marketers had experienced in one way or another. But all these are preparation works for your success. That is why at WA, everyone plays a part in contributions to make the learning journey an easy one. Regards Sadie.

Thank you so much, Jeff! And for your follow!

One of my deepest dreams is to make money through writing, or to sell writing to those who don't likt to write themselves.

Do you have some comments on this?
Again, thanks for offering your time in such a generous way!

Happy Regards,
Therese

Hi Therese,
That is very possible.
I know some people who sell their writing skills online - by selling e-books and by selling their writing service. Just keep on going.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
Reply
jeffvelmonte Premium
Hi Kyle,

Thanks.
The reason why I back track my training on getting started is I want to start from scratch again and revisit my choice of niche.
I just want to make sure that I am selecting a profitable, low to medium competitive, high traffic niche. And it is something I want to work on for the next 2 to 3 years.

Yes, I will share with you my selected niche.
I will also get in touch for inputs if in case I get stuck.
Reply
Kyle Premium
All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 2.8 billion people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

Hello Jeff, Welcome! Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start I have written trainings for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under trainings (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Jeff, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Jeff.

Hey Jeff,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Jeff and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)
