Interview with Rob Rammuny: 16 Yr Old Internet Entrepreneur Making Full Time Income
Recently I stumbled upon a young entrepreneur by the name of Rob Rammuny that really got my attention a couple of week ago. The reason I was so amazed was that I visited his about me page and seen a video of a well known blogger (Lisa Irby) saying that he was already making a full time income from blogging. Isn’t that amazing?
I knew I had to talk to him, so I contacted Rob to see what the heck did he have that others did not. As you know I don’t believe knowledge is power. I believe that sharing knowledge is power. So I decided to share his Interview with you.
I just hope that you’re inspired by Rob he’s a really cool entrepreneur. I’ve only had the chance to chat with him here and there and I can tell he’s a giver and he knows what he’s talking about.
Who is Bilal Rammuny?
I am a 16 year old blogger and Internet marketer who makes a full-time online. I’m very well known as “Rob” which is my nickname, where I blog about escaping the 9-5 to live the Internet lifestyle on my blog Robswebtips.com . I’m an adventurous, outgoing and crazed Internet entrepreneur who simply enjoys living the Internet lifestyle.
How long have you been blogging for?
I’ve been blogging for a little over a year now.
How did you get started with blogging?
I started off online with a website, but after having both a blog and website I found myself blogging more and not updating my main site so I dropped that and continued with blogging.
What did you do to get the initial traffic growth?
I never done anything “big” the main thing tho was writing good content that people was interested in reading. I got into social media sites like Stumble Upon and Twitter starting off which drove me thousands of visitors, and I wrote some guest posts which contributed to traffic growth.
Why did you decide to pick this subject or niche?
I kind of stumbled into this niche. When I started off online I was constantly doing research on trying to find out “How to make money from websites” and I realized I was spending way to much time going all over the place learning this stuff. I decided to create Robswebtips to share everything I know about Making money online so they can avoid constantly scavenging around the internet .
How much traffic do you think you need to be successful with a blog?
I don’t think anyone would ever be able to answer this question. I’ve seen blogs with 100 visitors dominate blogs with 100,000 visitors. It all depends on how loyal and targeted your audience is.
What’s the process to writing your first ebook? When did you decide it was time to write it?
When I first started off online I heard selling your own product was a good way to make money, so I decided to try it on my own. I decided to write a book about driving massive traffic to your website, I called it the Ultimate Traffic ebook. I never really “planned” to write the book, I just decided one day I was going to write a eBook, opened up word and starting writing. 2 weeks and $200 later I launched the book.
Do you any mentors or people that you read or look up to?
I don’t have any “mentors” I have a lot of friends I associate with that help me and I help them, and they are also some people I look up to for inspiration.
People like them I look up to for inspiration.
What’s the biggest tip or word of advice for new bloggers?
This is something I can go on and on about, but for the sake of the interview I’ll keep it short – Do what you love and never give up at it.
If someone is on the fence of quitting there 9 to 5 job, what do you thnk they should do before they jump straight into blogging?
I would suggest making sure they have a stable income stream before they leave. You don’t want to leave your job with the expectation of “making it big online overnight” because I’ve seen many people try this and fail. So, if anything, make sure you have a solid income from blogging or online.
What helped you the most to make the first $1 online?
The first $1 I made online was from clicking AD’s on a PTC (Paid to click site). But the first $1 I made from blogging was from re-selling an eBook and for that I would recommend building an audience + being credible.
What is the biggest obstacle that you’ve had to overcome?
One of the biggest obstacles was probably having a good mindset. I had to consistently tell myself that “I can do it” and “I will do it.” When you’re working online your going to have a lot of mistakes (some more than others) but the important thing to know is never give up.
Would you ever trade your lifestyle for a high paying 9 to 5 job? and why?
Never in my life would I give up the Internet Lifestyle to work for “the boss.” Even if I were to make $200k working for someone and only $50k working for myself (which is not the case) I still would decline. The Internet Lifestyle is pure freedom to do what you love and escape being confined to work for someone else. I myself am horrible with bosses and I couldn’t handle it, so being my own boss is something I find best.
What should a new blogger do to shorten their learning curve?
There is no “short way” to making your way a hit-success online. If there was anything I could offer it would to be keep being honest and don’t “wait” for something to happen
“take action” and make it happen.
