Who Am I?
Hi, I’m Vladimir Unguru. My first name has, in fact, Slavic resonances because of my mother, as she is originally from Ukraine.
I’m currently an IT guy with a day job and part time internet marketer. I’m a father of two and I’m living my regular life in Bucharest, Romania, Europe. Nothing fancy, nothing exceptional.
In the past, I’ve been working as a repair technician for industrial automation equipment, but in the 90s I switched to computer networks.
How Did I Come Across Internet Marketing?
As a never-ending quest for a better life, in the late 90s, I discovered online stock trading. I invested almost all my and my savings at that time, but after a few lucky transactions that gave me hope, I eventually lost everything in a matter of months!
For fifteen years I didn’t want even to think about earning money online. My last experience was quite shocking!
Anyway, a couple years ago I started to search for other ways to improve my life quality, I decided that Internet Marketing is the best way to meet my goals.
But it wasn’t easy. I got sick with the “shiny object syndrome”. Sounds familiar?
I eventually earned my first affiliate commission ($47) last year in November. Not too impressive you might say, but in fact this is a HUGE breakthrough from zero to something. Many marketers are struggling for years with ZERO results.
After I published a few dozens of videos on YouTube, the commissions started to show up! If there is something that works for you, then you must persist in that “something“.
I was testing several combinations of traffic sources and offer types to figure out which ones make the most conversions for me. Meantime I started this very blog and it’s a good feeling to see how it grows.
See the picture above? This is my very first affiliate commission I’ve ever earned, which was in late 2014! What a great feeling it was!
In the last few months, I’ve also tested the waters with Amazon. At first, I was a little skeptical due to this tiny deviation from the usual IM thing, but eventually, I realized that it’s just another income stream, so why not continue?
What Is This Blog About?
The main goal of this blog is to show my journey throughout my online business and to provide insights and useful information for newbies and advanced marketers.
When I stumble across useful methods for list building, SEO, getting traffic, product creation, blogging, etc, I publish them here after testing them by myself.
As I’m basically a technical person, I’m also dealing with WordPress technical stuff, like plugins, code snippets, style sheets, security, and other tweaks ‘n’ tricks.
That being said, I wish you success in your business too.
