Full NameGaurav Tiwari
The Backstory

Gaurav Tiwari’s first encounter with the internet was in 2007. He was amused by how computers worked and how easy everything they made.

Over the time, his interest in computers increased, and he started learning programming languages and found new ways to establish himself online.

In 2008, Gaurav Tiwari created his first blog on a branded subdomain on WordPress and later that year, switched to custom HTML websites.

In 2009, he created several websites, a spree of websites you can say, for his personal use and for local businesses and this is where his interest in the field brightened.

He was also writing random blog articles, but blogging became a regular thing in 2010 when he switched to for a blog.

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

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

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

Gatilab didn’t run well initially, and come 2015, he was ready (or had to be ready) for a job.

So, he 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. Gaurav led the team that beat Shri Nitish Kumar, the then (and now) Chief Minister of Bihar, in both PR and Marketing.

In 2016, Gaurav Tiwari gained Shri Modi as another freelance client and kept offering them his services. In 2015, he added 27 new clients before he switched to become a full-time freelancer. In 2016 alone, he added 49 new clients by August 2016.

In September 2016, Gaurav joined the Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India, as a graphic designer & social media manager.

He was allowed to take clients for his freelance needs outside of working hours. So, he added 51 clients in 2016-17 to take his complete clientele count to 171.

On 30th December 2017, he left his position at the Ministry to again seek a freelance career. It was the time Gaurav 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, Gaurav added 124 new clients — ranging from $20 works to $5000 works. This process has continued since then; now, Gaurav has 710+ active clients who offer him some work every now and then.
