When And How Did You Start Your Business? Share Your Success Story.
I started my internet career in March 2006 as writing article (I wrote 2-3 articles) but I realized that content writing is not my forte and I started learning from various eBooks and joined many Webmaster and SEO Forums to enhance my knowledge. I started learning about SEO and it was the field that I got Interest. I started interacting with various senior SEO Professionals and Forum Members and learnt a lot from them. I also joined many freelance sites to get started with this newly learnt knowledge at first I started to do directory submissions service as seo and got my first order of $10 in Jun 01, 2006 (can’t forget this ) It was from the webmaster Forum after this there were no work in next 1 month but I always watching peoples doing good on web so I continue learning and in August 2006 I got a work at 8000 INR monthly salary where I worked for about an Year, Simultaneously I never lost my hope to make my name in the field of SEO. I continued working on small project for directory submissions and other small SEO works. I used to get this projects from various webmaster Platforms and freelance sites. I realized that it was not enough to establish a steady business. Hence I decided to build my own site and offer these services through this website.
On March 3, 2007 I registered Robingupta.com. This was my first step towards Serious Entrepreneurship. However all my fellow SEO Friends and seniors were against my choice for registering personal name. They made fun of my decision said it was not good for SEO related services. I felt guilty but I continue with this domain. Following months I was too busy with small projects for directory submissions. While promoting client websites I ignored to promote my site. This was one of the big mistakes on my side, so year 2006 & 2007 was all about starting, learning and small orders.
In beginning of 2008 I started one way link building service (at webmaster forum) also started promotion of my site, I got an overwhelming response to this offer. This was the time when I started building my client base; most of them are still with me. Promotion was on the way for robingupta.com and got small orders from my site too, 2008 went good for me. Now in 2009 I started experimenting with some of my own methods to promote my site. I became expert in this field and started getting reputation of an SEO expert from the Internet Community. My Contacts Network increased and I started considering SEO as a Serious Business. I established this Business Under my own Name i.e. RobinGupta.Com. I bought my First Office in 2009. Today I have a team of SEO Professionals who are well Trained and qualified to deliver the best SEO Work as per the customer requirement. Time by time we added lots of off page seo services and right now we are complete web Solution Company.

Is there anything you wish you had done differently?
Not at all. Every experience has been a lesson for me. The good and the bad have helped me become a better business person and have helped me continually grow and cultivate the business. I’ve had a few major obstacles, but those obstacles made me stronger and wiser. They stretched my thinking and made me step out of my circumstances to find alternative solutions. So as hard as some of those situations were, I’m glad I went through them. The Only thing I wish I could do is to complete my higher studies. I was so involved in the online business that I could not complete my higher studies. However time has made me learn many beautiful lessons and also helped me learn Management Skills which I think would be at par with those Management Gurus.
