Vikram Brahma has over a decade of corporate working experience. By profession, he is a Digital Entrepreneur, Blogger, Writer and YouTuber.
I am super excited to write about this article in detail. And I used around 1220 words to complete this important article. As you all know that I am a digital entrepreneur. I do and love to try new online businesses by using digital platforms.
I came to know about Google Ads way back in 2007. But I never took any interest in online marketing. During those days hardly anyone knew about digital marketing in India and its benefits. Then again in 2016, I joined one institute to learn about digital marketing in detail.
The last year 2019 I spent many months just to figure out what kind of businesses I can start from home by using digital marketing platforms. During my search I got surprised and from november 2019 onwards I left everything and started implementing things as per my choice.
So, let’s see what all I have achieved till now and what are my goals before this year-end.
Started Blogging As A Passion And Hobby
I came to know about blogging a few years back. I know blogging can be a good online business. Starting a successful blog takes time and it requires a lot of hard work, dedication, and smart work.
There was a time when I used to get a lot of emails from Neil Patel and Harsh Aggrawal. Both are the top bloggers in their respective fields.
I started blogging as my first online venture and I started this due to my curiosity, passion, and on a trial basis. I wanted to understand how we can design a blog and what elements are needed.
During this process, I learned many things, especially designing blogs by using WordPress, email marketing through Mailchimp, content writing, and a little bit about SEO.
Since I got some good exposure I am thinking of starting at least two more blogs to make money. And this time I am going to select a better profitable niche.
If you wanted to check out my blog which I started as a hobby then kindly use this link www.northeastblogger.com. Currently, I am not so active in this blog. But I thoroughly enjoyed building it and this work helped me to get two clients for web designing.
Article Writing On Hubpages
I always wanted to write professionally and wanted to share my ideas, thoughts by writing. I always like to motivate people around me.
I started my career in an advertising agency. Later, I moved to the marketing and writing field. Then I became a teacher and now I am a full-fledged digital entrepreneur.
I took one course related to content writing and from that course, I came to know about the Hubpages forum. I made a goal to myself and made sure that by year-end I should write at least a hundred articles for Hubpages. And I am happy that this article itself is my 100th article for the Hubpages.
I am extremely happy to share that I have already completed this goal. And now I am looking forward to writing at least another sixty articles for Hubpages by December 2021.
After I started writing on Hubpages, audiences from the USA, India, Italy, Russia, Britain, Kenya, Canada, Egypt, Australia, etc are enjoying reading my articles. And I am sure in the coming few months onwards Hubpages will become another source of income for me.
Actually, by writing articles one can build a sustainable home-based business. And there are many platforms where one can build such a portfolio. Hubpages and medium are two good platforms to explore in detail.
Starting A YouTube Channel
Next in my target list was starting a YouTube channel. To start a channel I connected with one of my friends. We used to teach in the same institute. I shared my idea with her and then we collaborated and started our channel.
Currently, we are working from home which means we don’t have to go outside to shoot our videos and we manage everything from home. Our channel content is based on whiteboard animation software called doodly.
I record her voice by using audacity then we use doodly software and add her voice and do animation and add background music. The best part is I learned how to use doodly software by watching videos on YouTube.
I even got this idea by watching videos on YouTube channels. If you want to watch our channel and want to support us kindly like and subscribe to our channel i.e www.youtube.com/youreawesome.
Acquiring Own Clients And Learning About SEO
After learning about digital marketing, I started my own agency. Although it is yet to be registered, we work as an agency from our small town. This agency is run by two people. And I am working on building a new website for this project. We not only work for clients but we are trying to build our own online business like blogs and YouTube channels.
Because of my previous blog, I managed to get at least two clients for website designing and till now I have worked with four clients. One of my clients liked my work so much that he emailed me that he wanted to work with me for the rest of his life.
We provide two main online services i.e designing websites only by using WordPress for any business or for eCommerce companies. Sometimes I design ebook covers for one of my clients. In the future, I will be adding SEO services for any blogger or website owner.
Yes, I am also learning about SEO in more in-depth and I am sure in the coming two to three months' time I will be in a better position to handle SEO projects. And I am learning more about SEO because I have to start at least two money making blogs as soon as possible.
Another online business goal in which I will be entering before year-end is stock trading. I know many people will say it is not easy to do stock trading and it needs lots of time and effort to succeed.
Well, I will be learning about stock trading personally from someone who is in this industry for the last eleven years. And he has groomed many people and has a good number of clients in his portfolio.
It is not that I will be investing a large sum of money, at first I will trade with a small amount and I will spend quality time learning about this skill.
Why do I have a burning desire to learn this skill? Well, many investors who invest in any insurance or SIP have no idea that ultimately these insurance companies invest your money in stocking trading and that’s how they increase your money and return to you.
Yes, there are many benefits and drawbacks of stock trading but if you can learn and master this one skill it can automatically change your entire life. And the good part is I can do stock trading by sitting in my office just by using my laptop and internet connection.
My only suggestion is first to make goals then plans on how to achieve those goals and then just take action. Start small and grow gradually. It doesn’t matter how much or big money you make in the beginning. First, you have to learn different skills and then start implementing those skills. Sooner or later you will see some miracles in your life. Achieving goals is all about mindset, hard work, and dedication. Plus, I have another bonus goal which I wanted to achieve by december 2020. And I am all set to achieve this secret goal too.
