Please tell us something about yourself.
I drive growth for businesses & brands using various Digital Marketing Strategies, which help them achieve their goals successfully. I have also published a book called ‘Marketing Digital Marketing' to help anybody who wants to get started in this field.
How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey?
Having been in sales all my career life, as the consumers' buying interest shifted to digital platforms, it was important to learn everything about platforms where your customers are spending the most time on. I always had a vision for growth at all levels. There is nothing better to be able to scale up brands & startups with the knowledge and experience I have acquired over the course of long years in the niche. Challenging goals excite me the most & being in the digital marketing space, that is what I get to enjoy every day.
Who are your role models?
My Father & have indirectly learned a lot from Grant Cardone.
What inspires you?
Positive Results & Feedbacks from client's have always been my top inspiration source, which consistently inspires me to be better at my work & always pushes me to keep enhancing my skills.

What's your most memorable experience?
Every single day is a memorable experience for me, where I teach what I know & learn what I don't.
Which social media channels work best for promoting your work? What exactly do you do on the social media channel that makes it work for you?
The best channel that works in the promotion of our work is references from existing clients. On the other hand, social media channels help you to showcase your work to your targeted audience with ease. Instagram has been really a game-changer for a lot of digital marketers to reach a wider audience.
What's your greatest fear?
I fear to get into my comfort zone & take anything for granted.
Looking back, what's one thing you wish you understood better before you ever got started?
Looking back, I wish there were Digital Influencers and ease of information available now to all. The hassle of trial & error could have been lesser. This is why I tend to guide on my social media handles to the new digital marketers, so they can be better marketers of the future.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
Clean intent, growth attitude & honest approach have always been helpful to achieve success in every journey I take. Apart from that, my selling skills have helped me in breaking the initial barriers.
What keeps you going when things get tough?
I always live in the present with a clear vision for the future. Especially in COVID times like now, I recommend everyone stay positive & only focus on learning new things, which would eventually make them successful in the coming time.
