Interview with Leon Bekteshi

Let’s read what Leon Bekteshi answers to the questions in Fintiux’s newsletter:

Hi Leon! Tell us, Who are you and what are you working on? Which is your business?

I’m Leon, just a normal 17-year-old with a dream of breaking free from the traditional route and retiring my parents.

I have a personal brand on Twitter where I currently offer people 2 types of services:

  1. Email Copywriting: I create email sequences (such as welcome sequences, sales sequences, etc) and weekly newsletters for people.
  2. Twitter mentoring: I help people turn their Twitter profile into a money-making machine within 6 weeks. You can see what I help people with here. I normally mentor them 1 on 1, but this is for the people who can’t afford my prices.

What’s your story and how did you come up with the idea of starting this?

I’ve always known that the traditional route is some Bullshit. So, I wanted to find a way to make money online, I tried multiple things. Dropshipping, Social Media Marketing Agency, Dropshipping again, and then, finally decided to do copywriting because o the Real World.

How did you go from idea to execution?

It was pretty simple. I was determined to make this work. I spent MONTHS only learning the skill, quit the Real World, and started taking action.

Why do you think it is important to build a brand?

When you build your brand you have FULL control over your life, you make the money yourself, you set your hours and you control how much you are willing to work.

And I’ve managed to make a shit ton of money as a 17-year-old, I’ve helped clients quit their 9-5, and so on.

It is very beneficial.

Which are your marketing strategies to grow your brand?

There is no secret. Give value. Give value. Prioritize making connections. Give value. Make a landing page, newsletter and start promoting your stuff.

How are you doing today and what are your goals for the future?

I’m doing fantastic.

In the nearest future, I’ll scale up to an agency.
