Full NameGaurav Tiwari
Read my full story here.

My first encounter with the internet was in 2007. I was amused by how computers worked and how easy everything they made.

Over the time, my interest in computers increased, and I started learning programming languages and found new ways to establish myself online.

In 2008, I created my first blog on a branded domain on WordPress and later that year, I switched to custom HTML websites.

In 2009, I created several websites for my personal use and for local businesses. I was writing blog articles randomly, but blogging became regular only in 2010 when I switched to for a blog.

In 2011, I bought the domain name as wasn’t available and since then, it has been the first primary destination for my blogs and personal portfolios.

In the meantime, I continued with my studies (which obviously had several hiccups) and graduated & post-graduated with Math as a subject, along with Physics and Chemistry.

In 2013, I started raking up new clients and in the first year alone, I signed up 6 clients in a year. In 2014, the count increased to 38, and I came up with a company called Gatilab that offered core marketing and designing services to brands.

Gatilab didn’t run well, and come 2015, I was ready for a job. So, I joined Shri Sushil Kumar Modi’s team (former Deputy CM & Finance Minister of Bihar) as their social media marketing lead as a full-time job. I led the team that beat Shri Nitish Kumar, the then (and now) Chief Minister of Bihar, in PR and Marketing.

In 2016, I switched to Shri Modi as another freelance client and kept offering them my services. In 2015, I added 27 new clients before I switched to full-time. In 2016 alone, I added 49 new clients by August 2016.

In September 2016, I joined the Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India, as a graphic designer & social media manager. I was allowed to take clients for my personal needs outside of working hours. So, I added 51 clients in 2016-17 to take my complete clientele count to 171.

On 30th December 2017, I left my position at the Ministry to again seek a freelance career. It was the time I renewed my interest in Gatilab and started taking clients after Gatilab and Gaurav Tiwari both.

In this attempt, helped a lot and in 2018 alone, I added 124 new clients — ranging from $20 works to $3000 works. This process has continued since then; now, I have 710+ active clients who offer me some work every now and then.
