Have you ever heard of Jason Pereira from The University Kid? I expect so. Well I have been in contact with him so asked him for an interview. I hope you all like it!
Firstly, hello and thank you very much for agreeing to this interview Jason.
Could you please give us some information about your life and who you are?
My name is Jason Pereira, I am 17, I was born in India but currently I am living in Dubai. I am a university student and my favourite hobby is internet marketing. I started using Internet Messaging in 2007.
How did you start in this online career? Who gave you your inspiration?
I started during the summer of 2007 because I had five months off studying and was bored so I looked for ways to pass time online which is when I found out about paypal etcetera. I started by freelancing at $2 per article and soon moved on to domaining and website flipping. My inspiration was people on forums that were doing very well.
Did you believe back then that you would be as successful as you are now?
I had absolutely no idea! At the time I was just looking to make an extra $500 per month to use as spending money for parties and such.
Did you at any point have any “failures” which you then managed to learn from to become successful?
My biggest problem was that I wasted time on many projects that ultimately didn’t convert. I was also scammed quite a bit due to being naive early on – including over $650 for a site sale. This taught me a lot and from then on I have been much more careful about what I do with my money.
What advice do you have for those that are currently in the position you were in then?
Make friends early on with those that are more experienced than you, you’ll learn quicker and get scammed less as they have a lot to teach you. Also remember, joint ventures save time and make more money. As for best advice, probably creating sales pages for products… this saved me a ton of time and made me thousands.
Do you have any plans for the future?
Not really, no. I am currently very busy with exams then I am going on holiday in the next couple months. I will see about Internet Marketing after that.
Ok, thank you very much Jason.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Do you have any opinions or questions that you would like to ask Jason?
