Who’s Welly Mulia?
(don’t worry Spiderman is not trying to “web swing” me…)
Since 2008 I have not been working at a day job and instead have been running a full time profitable Internet business.
Before I tell you about my Internet business journey, I want to tell you a little about myself (that has nothing to do with Internet business) so that you can get to know me better as a person.
Because I seriously believe that if you want someone to trust you (like I want you to trust me when it comes to helping you REPLACE YOUR JOB on the Internet), you MUST make yourself known first. I’m not talking about getting well-known and enjoy celebrity status. I’m talking about people getting to know you personally so that they have a general idea of who you are and what kind of person you are.
I was born in the capital of Indonesia called Jakarta. I spent the first seven years of my life in this city before going to Singapore (a neighboring country) for my primary and secondary school education.
(primary school is the equivalent of elementary school. Secondary school is the same as junior high school…)
If you’re wondering if my whole family or my parents migrated to Singapore from Indonesia, the answer is no.
At the age of 7, I was handed over to a friend of my mom’s friend. So:
My Mom => Her Friend => Her friend
Maybe I shouldn’t have used the phrase “handed over” as it’s not too appropriate (and wouldn’t be fair to my mom). The correct word should be: I was sent to study in Singapore because my parents want me to be able to learn English and Mandarin, the official Chinese language.
(In my country, Indonesia, the native and official language is Indonesian)
In my early years (even to this date actually, but to a much lesser extent), I LOVED playing video games. Depending on your age, back in the late 1980s, Atari was a very popular game console. We had that system in our house (in Indonesia), and whenever I go back to Indonesia during school holidays (twice per year), I’d play all day long.
Then came Nintento, Sega, Super Nintento, Playstation… You name it. I had them all. I was so PASSIONATE about playing games that I often skipped meals just to be able to play longer…
I even bought Nintendo Wii 2 years ago, although I don’t play it as often as I used to (hey we all grow up and have more important things to do right…)
To cut a long story short, my stay in Singapore lasted for almost 10 years. Early 1997 I went to the US to pursue my Bachelor’s degree, and I graduated from the University of Arizona located in the “beautiful desert city” of Tucson.
Looking For A Job
After I graduated in December 2000, I spent 14 months looking for a job in the US, but NOBODY wanted to hire me haha.
(…I was so ashamed and embarrassed at myself because of this that I can remember THAT feeling up till now – probably this feeling is going to stay with me forever)
WHATEVER… I don’t really care…
So I went back to my home country Indonesia In February 2002.
Over the span of 5 years until 2007, I switched 3 jobs.
How My Internet Marketing Career Started…
On my last job (in June 2006 to be specific), I was introduced to the Internet marketing world by accidentally stumbling a website that talked about the potential of making money online.
In the early days of my Internet marketing career, I played a lot with black hat methods to generate money via Google Adsense.
I joined a popular (at that time) membership program called PG Insider. If you’re involved in the Internet marketing world prior to 2008, most likely you knew or have heard about this membership program before. It’s the number 1 community/membership program for mass producing black hat Adsense sites.
I didn’t get rich via Adsense, but I did make some decent money via Adsense. In fact, my FIRST EVER online paycheck is from Adsense in the amount of one hundred plus dollars haha.
The day that I received that Citibank check (from Adsense) is probably one of the happiest days of my life.
YES I know, it’s only a hundred plus dollars. But what made me very emotional about it is because I got this first paycheck ever in May 2007, which means it took me 11 freaking months to make my first online money.
So there you go, the emotions were just too strong for me…
From there, I was more motivated and determined than ever to make even more money with Adsense. So using the software PG Insider provided me as a paying member (I paid $97/month), I started building hundreds upon hundreds of black hat portal Adsense sites that provided NO VALUE at all to visitors landing on these sites.
In fact, the content on these sites do not make sense to the human eyes as they are mass generated and mass spinned using built-in synonyms, thereby making the content unreadable and impossible to understand.
But hey this is EXACTLY the primary objective of these sites – when visitors don’t understand what the content is, they’ll most likely click the Adsense ads that actually make sense and can be understood by the human eyes…
…And when they click these ads, my Adsense earnings, of course, increases.
I Got Fed Up
I continued to dabble with black hat methods of generating Adsense income, when I finally got fed up and tired because of 2 reasons:
1. Because my black hat sites would only generate income for a few weeks, I always need to generate tons of sites every week to sustain my income. If not, my income would go down.
2. Every day I was always worrying that my Adsense account would be closed by Google (Google doesn’t like black hat sites and is always closing Adsense accounts that are found to be engaging in black hat activities like mine).
So I searched for better and more reliable ways to making money online, until I finally realized that:
It’s NOT just about “making or earning money online”. Rather, it’s more about “building a REAL BUSINESS on the Internet”
And to build a real business, whether online or offline, you need to always PROVIDE VALUE to your customers.
If you can’t provide value, then it’s not really a business – it’s just a TEMPORARY, SHORT TERM income.
Building an Internet business is NEVER easy, and will NEVER be easy.
I wish I could tell you how easy it is and that you can earn thousands of dollars instantly and effortlessly just by clicking a few mouse buttons, but the TRUTH is that it doesn’t work that way…
If it were REALLY that easy, everyone would be quitting their job and building an Internet business full time. But it’s NOT happening right? Instead, 99% people FAIL when they try to earn money online, and they fail MISERABLY!
In my case, it took my 11 months before I finally made my first online money.
YES 11 Months my friend…
(…and even after 11 months, my online income was NOT CONSISTENT. It took me ANOTHER 10 months before my income got steady – meaning it took my 21 months since I first got started in Internet marketing to make a CONSISTENT online income)
Not to discourage you or anything, but you should ASSUME that you’re NOT going to make any money online for the first few months.
The purpose of this blog is to educate and share with you how to build a profitable Internet business MUCH FASTER than 21 months.

And together we have a beautiful daughter, Kaela:
