Questions People Ask

What was your first job as a journalist/blogger?

I reported as an NSS volunteer pre-college.

When did you start blogging?

I started creating blogs and started writing on my own and guest blogs in 2008.

What advice can you offer to aspiring bloggers?

Start taking risks in your writing. Be real, and don’t build a career on copied, cheap or fake content. Realism gets rewarded.

How did you start as a marketer?

Marketing has always been at my core. But it took a concrete shape way back in 2012. This was when I was trying to create a source of income by writing articles on different sites under pseudonyms. These things paid but not that much. I figured this was the time I took the gear into my hands.

Looking back, what was your hardest struggle when it came to delivering results?

I come from a village in India, not even a town. I lacked resources, aspirations and inspiration. Plus, English isn’t my first language which was a roadblock as well.

How did you get your first client back then, and what kind of service did you do for them?

I was writing for some blogs under pseudonyms. But I couldn’t call them clients. My first client, a real client, conversion was in 2012. It is a local company that wanted to get started in digital marketing and SEO. I somehow picked the project and delivered it that way before time. Slowly but continuously, new contacts kept coming and converting.

What do you find most rewarding about what you do?

Money. No matter what you say, money will always be the ultimate objective of any person on the planet. The next thing is the satisfaction of sharing knowledge.

What do you advise new bloggers?

Stay away from the self-proclaimed experts who guide you into a career that is good for nothing. Start with basics, learn from authority resources and choose your own path to success.

How do you suggest I should start from the basics?

Build a portfolio and gain clients by showcasing your earlier works.

Once you are good in your main niche, you can try alternates like link building, affiliate marketing and lead generation.

How do you prefer to be contacted?

On emails. Email me at, and I am all ears.
