About Mario

Hey! My name is Mario And I’m Making Over $200,000 Dollars a Month Thanks to My online Business…

I want to tell you a little bit about myself…

I was born in Monterrey one of the 3 biggest cities in Mexico where I have lived almost my whole life. After I finished high school I made a trip to Vancouver Canada to learn to speak English.

I went to an English school, my parents paid for this trip, we were not rich so they made a big sacrifice to help put me through this English school and I always be more than grateful to them for it.

I did not have any of their money left for tripping or going out so I had to work to pay for my stuff, I was a 17 years old guy and never had a job before so I knew this was not going to be easy

I did a little bit of everything but most of the jobs available were as a labor, I was a skinny 17 years old guy and lifting heavy things was not easy for me, after some weeks I gained some muscles and learn some tricks so I got used to it, I worked as carpenter, roofer, dishwasher, boat cleaner, construction labor,  house cleaner, landscaping and so on I met a lot of people from these jobs and learnt more English working with than in the English school, I could say that I learnt English on the streets lol.

When I was back in Mexico I worked for about 2 years  installing telecommunication equipment for the biggest phone company in Mexico, travelling a lot inside north Mexico, I really was not happy doing that, was not making a lot of money for the hard working hours and I just hate working for someone else so, I quit.

I Was Not Going Back To Work For Somebody Else Again!

I wanted to have my own business so a friend of mine and me open up a natural flavor iced drink stall. We thought it was a good idea because my city is hot as hell.

It was pretty simple we purchased an ice crusher machine and bought the fruit scrapping from a third party, at the beginning we were pretty excited but after 6 months didn’t see the business going anywhere, the problem was the location, we didn’t have enough money to move it somewhere else so we decided it to closed it.

So here I was an unemployed entrepreneur that had recently failed on his first business adventure, going back to work for my last employer was not an option for me, I could imagine my ex-employer’s face of satisfaction watching me walk through his office and ask him for my job back, I could almost hear him telling me “don’t worry Mario being my slave is not that bad”. No way! I was not going to go back.

Every single advice I got from my parents and friends were “ you should get back to work for this company” “it is secure” “it is impossible to succeed with your own business” I could not see a light at the end of the tunnel and I was actually thinking about asking for my job back :(.

My Starting Point On the Internet

At a family reunion, I heard my uncle say that a friend of his was making very good money by selling hair straighteners on eBay, I wanted to try it too so I created my account, did a research about some products that were trending and invested in a couple of them (all the money left of my savings were into those products) and then boom! My first sale.

This was huge for me, my first breakthrough! I realized that making money on the internet was possible.

Then I started selling more and more, I was making around $2000 dollars a month which is not bad for living in Mexico but I was not even close to my financial freedom. This was my starting point on the internet which gave me free time to look for others sources of income.

I googled “How to make money online” as most people do when starting out lol and came across these videos with people talking about the new “opportunity” to make thousands of dollars in a few days with a little investment, most of these sites were just BS but as a newbie I couldn’t identify the BS from the good platforms so I bought one of these “opportunities” for $50, felt for the hype and lost the money.

After a little research, I came across “affiliate marketing” which is one of the best business models online nowadays, I joined this platform called Wealthy Affiliate, its training put me in the right direction to start my online journey on affiliate marketing.

Good online platforms and training on how to make money online with affiliate marketing exist and Wealthy Affiliate is the best one in the field.

After a few months of training and hard work I was able to make money with affiliate marketing, I was making around 3k a month from affiliate marketing and my eBay sales combined, not a fortune but enough to pay the bills and forget about a 9 to 5 job.

$500,000 + From My Dropshipping Business

I found these youtube videos of people making a lot of money from Shopify and Facebook ads, I was pretty skeptical because they showed insane stats on their videos like making $5k a day in sales or 10k a day, it seemed like  scam to me but  their strategies with paid advertising made sense, so I opened my own Shopify store using the dropshipping business model.

I wasn’t seeing profits at the beginning but after testing many products I found one that sold like hot cakes and I started to have $50 days in sales, I scaled my paid advertising with Facebook ads and $100 days started coming in…

After 4 months I got my first 1k day in sales then steady 7k days and this is how I have made more than $500k within 9 months, the best part of this I’ve made $350k in the last 2 months (November and December of 2017) this is more than 70% came in just in the past 2 months.

dropshipping model

I’m not just writing this to brag you but to show you that anyone can do this don’t waste your time working for somebody else, stop making somebody else rich, invest your time and money on you, learn how to make money online, believe me, you are your best asset.

This is the training that I got to learn how o use shopify and facebook ads, it’s called ecom elites made by my buddy Frank Hatchet, he was the first one to make public this strategy on youtube, so I recommend you to check it out.

If you want to stick to affiliate marketing, I recommend Wealthy Affiliate.

        hi Mario,

        I hope its not too late to comment on this post.
        i just want to clarify, as per WA website, you just need to choose an interest, build a website,attract visitors and earn revenue.
        how can i earn revenue once i already have visitors? where does the product that i will do affiliate marketing for will come from?
        also, the free siterubix website from WA 10 free lessons trial does not show site stats or anything to track the number of my visitors.

        i hope you can reply.

        thanks

          Hello Val, there are tons of affiliate programs for every single niche, once you have visitors to your website you can lead those visitors to your affiliate links, you will get your own affiliate links when you join those affiliate programs, if somebody buys something through those links you earn a commission, you can link your website to the search console of google (web master tools) and google analytics to track where your traffic is coming from, I’ll be publishing something about it very soon, have a great day.

      Thanks for your comment Miguel I’m doing affiliate marketing and I have an online store, if you would like to learn about affiliate marketing you can try wealthy affiliate, it’s free to join, Wealthy Affiliate is focused on SEO traffic, I’m also a member of the 4% group which I also recommend. You could get faster results within the 4% group but you will need a bigger budget because it’s focused on paid traffic, you can check it out in here, whichever you choose, feel free to contact me if you have any question. cheers.

    Hi Mario,

    You wrote this very nicely and everyone should read your article, because you wrote exactly what needs to be heard and is not to long to loose the will to read it to the end. I also lost some money with investing in HYPS. Since you mentioned you are now experienced in finding scams can you just throw an eye on this business: Sky Way Invest Group.
    I am asking for this one, because I saw an article about their project in one technical magazine for which I know has lots of filters before they publish an article and credibility is one of those filters.
    Thank you and wish you all the best with affiliate business which will get harder and harder in future when lots of people start doing it 😉

      I’m glad I could make you laugh a little bit, laughter is very healthy, it seems you don’t know the difference between affiliate marketing and a ponzi scheme or pyramid scheme, in short, a pyramid scheme is an unsustainable business that is illegal in most countries, at some point the pyramid is going to collapse and the people who enter at last are going to lose their money, you can learn more about pyramid schemes and frauds on the internet just google it, in the other hand with affiliate marketing you receive a commission when somebody buys a product through your link, it doesn’t matter what product you are promoting, it all depends on the niche you’ve chosen, for example, you could join an affiliate program from a tv store, you can promote a tv with your affiliate link and if somebody buys the tv through your link you get a commission, there are tons of affiliate marketing programs because it helps companies to have more sales and grow, the big companies have their own affiliate program like ebay, amazon, google etc. if you are saying these huge companies are running a pyramid scheme you are wrong, but don’t worry I used to be like you, I didn’t know what affiliate marketing was, I joined ponzi schemes and lost money in the past, that is why I created this blog in the first place, I want to share my experience with people, I do not promote scams nor pyramid schemes, what I recommend is proven high quality affiliate marketing training and some tools that are very helpful too. you have a wonderful day Gig.

    Hello Mario, as I scrolled down I realized you mention that there is no free trial in Philippine does that include all Asian country too? And also what if this online store/ online seller didn’t send the product to the customers? Does that ever happen? Will you know whether they have send it or not? And about that Emgoldex it’s because the Emirates wanted a bigger share and they want their gold to be the main supplier. Politics. Don’t always listen to one side only. I understand why you feel cheated. But don’t you think your friend was actually the one who cheated you? That’s possible though. Cause you said they teach and train you but by the end you don’t know why you didn’t get reward? That sound suspicious , why didn’t you know? Shouldn’t you be questioning that to them? Why didn’t you get rewarded if you do have two people as per required? I have heard a lot about inter gold and my friends and cousin are in it too. There’s a lot of scammers from Philippine using that company name and misuse it and they run with the money. So is it the company fault? Or was it that person fault? I have seen the people I know successfully get rewarded so how can they get rewarded from the company if its a scam? I think it’s not the company that is scamming, the people who misused the company’s name are the real scammer. I’m not under inter gold because I don’t have money to start it. But this what I see and do my research on my own.

      Hi Iris, Wealthy Affiliate´s free training is not available in
      -Nigeria
      -India
      -Philippines
      -Vietnam

      Wealthy affiliate isn’t an online store, it’s a community with a bunch of great tools like affiliate marketing video-training, web hosting, site builder, keyword tool, live webinars and much more, they have a great customer support, you can get access for free unless you are from the countries I mentioned before. It’s by far the best platform on the internet for somebody who wants to make money with affiliate marketing.

      About Global Intergold, I was in a few Global Intergold conferences and they never told people that it is a MLM company, that’s because the term MLM has a very bad reputation, this kind of business model (MLM) is based on a pyramid scheme which is unsustainable and illegal, the only difference is that they offer a product but it’s the same system, you have to refer 2 people in order get paid and they have to do the same, that is exactly how a ponzi scheme works. the money you received if you ever exit a table comes from the 2 people your referral invited, they try to hide all this pyramid scheme system with gold, it doesn’t matter if is gold or diamonds it’s the same system, for further information search on Google about ponzi schemes.

    I was very excited when I learnt about this programme and started day dreaming that now the clouds cast over me will be
    gone forever but to my dismay you removed the word free and putin $349/yearly fee discriminating some countries from others. I am from India and am a proud of being an Indian and say no thanks to your training even if it were offered free now.
    Right now you are free to discriminate us from others but soon we would be the leaders in all the fields.

      Hi Giridhar, Wealthy Affiliate is not my course I’m just an affiliate, this means that I’m promoting this awesome platform because it has helped me to make a full-time living from the internet. Unfortunately (I don’t know why) they don’t offer free trial for some countries, I’m a person that thinks that everybody should be treated equally, no matter country, language, religion, gender etc, I’m not discriminating anybody, I’ve met Indian people and I know you are great people very friendly and hard workers I have met a few along the way. The beauty of internet marketing in this case affiliate marketing is that you can do it wherever you are in the world (from India too) I’m from Mexico and I’m making money so, don’t let this get you discourage, if you have any other question please reply to this comment 🙂
