So how did all this get started? Continue reading to know more about me! :)
I started of playing games on the computer and slowly moved onto typing documents & removing printouts, that’s how I learned to use Microsoft Word. Hence I started working at my dad’s office removing printouts for him and his client, though I did the work very rarely.
With the Vsnl-Dialup internet coming @ home and office, that was my first step towards the internet. I registered a lot of email id’s and used to do timepass on the internet, waiting for someone to mail me! Oh yeah spammers used to mail me, I used love reading their mails then ;).
My encounter with an Indian Television Forum and its Owner changed my life. Until then I just used to waste my time on the net. I started moderating their forums and the admin became my close friend. He turned me to a (so called ;)) intelligent boy.
He used to call me a Techie and had infact given me the first title that ever a forum member got,
and till date its a exclusive title held with me, i.e., “!@#$@ Forum Techie”
What else? He gave me my first ever site Sunny-Bajaj.com. We were finding the domain name with the word Techie in it, but finally registered Sunny-Bajaj.com and the hosting was provided by his company.
I started the site and there was no turning back.
Starting the site was good but nothing very special in terms of revenue, it taught me the handling of a website and handling the Internet!
From personal blog to internet facts n tutorials to timepass blog to finally a gadget blog the journey was 2yrs+. I came in touch with other good gadget blogs and used to read information from there and blog them in my own words.
Life was gr8 but I needed something more…. I was fascinated by the terms pagerank and I wanted that PR5 what the others had.
I started checking the backlinks that other websites had, did some research to check what my competitors had, noticing linkbacks from related niche and from some online forums. [Yes you can call me a spy, afterall to spy on your competitor is Business ;-) , not like the big boys aren’t doing it. Well if you aren’t doing so, its time to getup and smell some coffee.]
That’s when I noticed a competitor had good no.of backlinks from a Webmasters Forum! Obviously the next thing I did was to register at that forum….
And bang, I had explored a box of gold. I learned more about the Internet and its endless possibilities.
One thing about me is that I am a quick learner. I always read-practice-implement and then master that niche. I am always open to learning something new (& old if I have left something behind) and exciting.
My journey has given me an experience of more than 8-9 years in the Online Industry.
I have worked for a lot of big boys out there in the niche, I’d rather say they have given me the privilege to consult them on what I do the best.
I do run a Web Development/Internet Marketing Company namely; Digital Solutions India formed around 2007 having its office in Navi Mumbai.
I don’t really serve the general public professionally but only work for corporates (40%) and manage our own network (60%) which comprises of various websites under difference niche.
But yes I do offer free consultation to my friends, industry folks and general public. I do so to share my knowledge and experience with others.
