I started Digital Marketing in 2004 with Current Mumbai’s Best SEO Company. I learned a lot over there from My Colleague. It was a new era for Digital Marketing so most things we need to do is collecting Backlinks which is a very boring Job but thank god to Google who has changed the Algorithm and nowadays we do follow the Quality Backlinks Strategy.

What made you start a digital marketing company?
Frankly speaking, I got bored doing routine jobs. Especially when you got NO from Higher Authorities to promote yourself to handle other departments and challenging work. So I have been thinking about quitting and starting my own. Let me tell you, It took me 1 Year and 3 Months to get my first client. Thank god for my Freelance projects which I have few, Otherwise, it’s difficult to survive for me.
What’s your suggestion to digital marketing enthusiasts?
As I said, It took 1 Year and 3 Months to get my first client. So Be Patient, Nothing is Quick. You have to do your best and rest and decide over god.
