A few words about NetHustler and who runs it
You’re probably here because you’re thinking: What The Hell is NetHustler?
I’m going to share a few words on this page to explain the name, meaning and reason for starting this blog.
What’s a Net Hustler?
Well, to put it simply: If you make money using the Internet you’re an Internet Hustler, or at least that’s what I like to call myself.
No idea, it just sounds good to me, plus with so many songs, movies, tv shows, blogs, etc.. talking about the “hustle” and the “daily grind”, it kinda stuck in my head.
Now back to Internet Hustling:
There are many ways to make money online, from starting a blog and writing about things you’re passionate about to owning an e-commerce business (like a Shopify Dropshipping website) or providing your own service.
You can pretty much monetize any kind of website or project and make money out of it by using some internet marketing tools and tips.
So now that you get an idea of what an Internet Hustler is, you pretty much already realize that NetHustler is short for Internet Hustler, hence the name of the blog.
Who Runs Net Hustler?
Hi there 👋
My name is Stephen Montagne, I’m from Europe (exact country location not known, it can change on any given moment, I’m sorta in between a digital nomad and someone with a stable base), oh and… I’m an Internet Hustler.
I have over 14+ years of experience in Online Marketing and Web Developing. Most of the time I work on my own projects/businesses when I get some free time I like to write on this blog, to share my experience with others.
I started out creating websites at the age of 13 or 14 for myself, back then we didn’t have WordPress so I’ve done everything in HTML and CSS. We didn’t even have that thought to us at school (unlike these days).
I just quickly learned from the internet like most of us. Man… the 1990s internet was something else.
From creating personal sites for friends and family, I then started doing it for other people as a freelancer, and after that, I quickly turned it into a lucrative business.
Nowadays I don’t do that anymore, I only work on my sites and projects, and I focus more on marketing rather than web design.
I’m kinda a jack of all trades when it comes to online marketing, from social media to SEO, email marketing and more…
But with that being said:
My specialty is paid traffic generation, because I never rely just on SEO, although I do optimize all my websites for it.
The reason is simple, the search engines update their ranking systems all the time, and one day you can be on top, the next day your site could be nowhere to be found.
Plus…paid traffic is instant, and because I like to see results fast, I like it even more just because of that.
Of course, I also do all the other “boring” stuff like SEO, content marketing, social media, and all that noise, but that is mostly outsourced these days.
I do run a couple of successful websites in different niches, and I also run a video animation creation service with my brother, video marketing is hot right now, with YouTube being the 2nd largest search engine in the world and 3rd most visited website in the world.
I won’t name my established websites here, because if I do, you would go ahead and start creating websites similar to mine thinking you will make it, but in reality, you won’t learn anything valuable by doing that.
Not to mention that not all of us have the same strengths and passions. For example, I enjoy coming up with new marketing ideas and finding new affiliate campaigns and test them out doing split tests, with various landing pages, ads, copywriting, etc… and also test them across different traffic sources.
I hate writing articles.
I write only when I feel like it and when it’s necessary sure, but I don’t enjoy it as much as I do tinkering with a campaign and trying to figure out new ways to optimize it for a higher ROI, so most of the time I just simply prefer to outsource and pay someone else to write the articles for me.
I don’t outsource the articles on this blog though, everything you will read here is written 100% by me unless I decide to publish a guest post written by another author, that is so amazing I just have to share it with you guys.
So like I said, by copying my websites you won’t really achieve anything, because you need to figure out what you like to do, and what are your strengths.
But, Good News:
There will be articles, guides, and video tutorials, that you will find here where you will see exactly how I create a website from start to finish, including the domain name, the website creation process, the marketing methods I will use, etc… So you could see exactly how I do it, if it fails or if it becomes successful.
Contrary to what many Internet Marketers are doing, I did not create NetHustler in order to “get rich” by teaching others how to make money online. I find that a bit sketchy, not to mention that most of these blogs/websites never make it big.
Most of them don’t know what the hell they’re talking about, because if they never put in the work, the hours, and their own personal money in order to test different campaigns, ideas, websites, businesses, etc, they won’t have any real insight or advice to give you.
On NetHustler you will see real case studies, even if they fail. With a focus on:
- Traffic Generation
- Content Marketing
- Affiliate Marketing
- Building Authority
- Hosting and Developing
- and more…
