who Is Vasco Monteiro?
Hola amigo, I’m the founder of Konec – a place where I help entrepreneurs and agencies dominate Google. Before that, I was a student with a Master’s in Engineering.
Here’s me and my girlfriend with matching hats looking sexy :
I started this site because I wanted to share my tips and tactics on how to get a site on the first position of Google.
I was starting my Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering and Management when I discovered SEO.
I had about €1,500 to my name that I had made by selling e-cigarettes to friends and online when I was in high school, as well as other ventures I had when I was a kid (more on that below).
I had a good looking future ahead of me, I was going to be an engineer like most of my family members, which was great.
But something was missing…I always wanted more than that, I wanted to have my own business!
Back when I was in high school, other than selling e-cigarettes to friends, and friends of friends, I started a dropshipping business for Gopro mouth mounts (you’d be able to have a POV vision of what you were doing – sky, surf, skate etc…). That website is actually still live! (in Portuguese though)
Needless to say, it wasn’t a huge success.
I even did some voice acting dressed as a clown on Fiverr for a couple months (true story). Here’s the mask I used lol:
That’s me, and that’s the camera I used to record these videos on!
So, I was selling products “door-to-door”, I was dropshipping, I was even dressing up as a clown and talking to a camera.
I was doing everything I could to make some money online, because I knew there was more to life than just pursuing an engineering degree.
With the money I had made on Fiverr, selling e-cigs and GoPro mounts (~€1,500), I was able to buy my first motorcycle, which was the one I used to go to university to get my Bachelor’s Degree, here’s a picture of it:
It’s a SYM Wolf, it costed me exactly €950 used + the helmet!
I treated this motorcycle like my baby, after all, I had invested almost all of my money in it so I could easily go to university.
It was only a year into university that I found out what SEO was, from a guy called Alex Becker. (Current CEO of Hyros)
I took his SEO course called Source University, I watched hundreds of hours of his content, I spent hours on Black Hat World (SEO forum) learning and studying how to rank sites in Google.
I was determined to rank my first site.
I failed, a lot.
But, through countless hours working on my craft, hundreds of euros wasted in buying crappy links, miracle plugins, fake promises from internet gurus, I found an SEO formula that worked.
I ranked my first site.
A couple weeks later I had found a small electrician company in Lisbon, which agreed in paying me to redirect the phone on my site to theirs (I was selling leads).
He was paying me about €200/month, it was great! I was a university student making 200€ a month, I was rich (so I though)!
And now I could fill up my gas tank!
Few years passed and I improved my SEO skills, I got new and much bigger clients (USA, Canada, Portugal and Australia), I was staring to grow my portfolio at an extremely fast pace.
I had done it, I figured out how to print money!
3 Years Later…
As you could probably tell, I like motorcycles…so, in 2019 I spoiled myself from all my hard work and used some of the money I had done with my SEO clients to make a little upgrade…
That’s a €7,000+ brand new 2019 Honda CB500X, and this is NOT me bragging, it’s just me being upfront with you and telling you that it is possible, and You Can Do It.
