It seems this guy will be happy, whatever the future may bring. While listening to every question, Dovydas Sidabras keeps smiling with confidence, as a person who is 100% sure he’s already walking the path of success.
Like his childhood hero Phileas Fogg, Dovydas is planning to travel around the world in the upcoming 2 or 3 years. “But I think it will take longer than 80 days, maybe 80 weeks. With no rush and because of no wager. Only because the road is waiting for me. Recently I’ve learned that the less time I work, the higher my income becomes,” he says and smiles warmly.
For now, we are talking about a part of the road which he’d already travelled until today, becoming one of the most successful carVertical affiliates. Dovydas, 23, who lives in Lithuania, runs three VIN decoder websites for Lithuanian, Latvian and the US audiences.
Dedicating only 2 hours per day, Dovydas earns four-digit amounts with the carVertical Affiliate partnership. It is no coincidence that his surname means silver in his mother tongue.
Living the childhood dream
As a child, Dovydas wasn’t only reading Jules Verne books. As far as he can remember, he was always obsessed over vehicles.
“I think it’s the freedom of motion that fascinates me most. You can sit in the car and drive to the end of the world if you want. And of course, I love the sound of an engine, all those engineering marvels created by the brightest minds of the industry… I don’t want all those miracles for myself. I want to share them with as many people as possible,” Dovydas says.
The desire to share brought him to the automotive business. In the regular job, every day he meets car buyers who are searching for the used vehicles. Nowadays, it’s a piece of cake to find a favourite model. The troubles begin when a buyer tries to learn more about its past. Has the odometer been clocked? Are there any concealed accidents or bugs? Has the car been stolen? You should either believe what the seller tells you or dedicate long hours for research but still won’t find a good part of the vehicle’s history.
Dovydas was successfully building his career for 5 years, but in 2019 he made a crucial step forward.
“I’ve always wanted to help customers not only with my tips and experience but to give more value. You could be the truest petrolhead in the world, but you still can’t uncover the full history of a car just by looking at or test-driving it. You can’t guess its past like some kind of shaman,” Dovydas explains.
The common goals
The dreams began to come true in the summer of 2018 when carVertical launched its blockchain-based car history reports. Finally, there was a comprehensive, reliable and user-friendly platform to check real mileage, accident history and other essential facts about the vehicle’s past and condition.
Later, in the spring of 2019, the company started its Affiliate program. From now on, every media channel (website, blog, Youtube, Instagram, etc.) owner is able to start a collaboration with one of the fastest-growing start-ups in the automotive industry.
“I was searching for the platform with which I could share the same goals and found carVertical. I fell in love with their fascinating idea to make the automotive world more transparent. Moreover, they have a wonderful Affiliate program. It offers a very smart referral tracking system, top-quality promo materials and a very high commission rate, which, of course, lets you monetize your effort,” Dovydas names the benefits.
How to start? It’s so simple!
Starting up went smoothly for Dovydas, like for any other of the more than 200 carVertical Affiliate partners. All you have to do is sign up and add your unique referral link or banner to your website or social media channel.
From that magic moment, every visitor, who clicks the link, and then buys a carVertical report in 90 days, brings earnings to you. Even if the user clicks other affiliates’ links, the system remembers the last click, and the part of the commission is still paid for you.
Dovydas started an affiliate partnership with carVertical in the spring of 2019. Step by step, he launched his VIN decoder sites and started growing their traffic. In addition to his regular job, the affiliate dedicates approx. 2 hours a day to the websites. Already in the first months of collaboration, his monthly earnings from the referrals achieved four-digit amounts and now keep further increasing every month.
How would Dovydas define his secret of success? He smiles once again: “It’s simple. Keep pursuing your goals, improving your skills, and communicate with the carVertical team. These guys will always help you with any questions you may have and advise you on the right direction for your project.”
