Hi, I am Sarvesh Shrivastava, an 18-year-old Blogger-cum-Digital Marketer from India. I am currently pursuing Engineering and have been earning a decent income online since a year now.
In the best of the times, I have touched over 12 lacs/month while currently, I am making around 5 lacs/month, all thanks to blogging. 🙂
My Journey From A Simple Guy To A Leading Marketer!!
I started from a small town in India where I suppose hardly anyone knows it is possible to make money online. Not even my parents until I shown them the potential blogging had and later on proved myself by making my first $124 that I made through my first website I created.
Thanks to my parents, I got a computer and an Internet connection very early in my life (when I was in the 4th standard).
Though, it was 2-3 years later when I discovered it was possible to make money online.
Blogging seemed to be the way everyone was making money at that time. After reading numerous guides, I finally created my first ever blog.
What started as an experiment soon turned into a passion. I started putting in hours and hours of hard work, learned everything I could and at the same time implemented it on my blogs.
It wasn’t all a piece of cake, though. It took me around 7-8 months to make my first dollar and a couple of more months to reach the $100 threshold.
With my first $124, I presented small gifts to my mom, dad, and sister. It was one of the proudest moments of my life. 🙂
It has been a roller coaster ride since then. I have managed to launch around 17-18 sites, of which some became really successful, a couple is on their way while a few didn’t turn out the way I wanted.
Alongside, I scored well academically and got into MIT Pune, which is one of the most renowned colleges of India and to put the cherry on the cake, I got Computer Science as my branch. 🙂
Before joining college, I was easily collecting over $10k a month with my websites. I was putting in great efforts and they were paying me back. I have attached the screenshot of my Google Adsense earnings of last 30 days.
For those who are not aware of Google Adsense, it is a monetization program from Google that allows website owners to show ads on their website and in turn generate revenue from their blogs.
However, after joining the college, I had to shift my priorities a bit. Lectures, exams, and assignments require time and efforts and that’s why I had to reduce the time I put into blogging by a great amount.
That has led to an effect on the money I am making right now. At the moment, I am touching just over 5 lacs/month. Although it is not as great as it used to be, I am fairly satisfied with it since my academic career is equally important to me. 🙂
The money I am making has not only allowed me to do a lot of things that others of my age aspire but it has helped me towards my goal of financially reaching a point where I don’t have to worry about making money at all. As Warren Buffet says,
IF YOU DONT FIND A WAY TO MAKE MONEY WHILE YOU SLEEP, YOU WILL WORK UNTIL YOU DIE.
My Future Goals
Now that I know all the ins and out of this industry, one of my goals is to help others get started in this industry and help them achieve bigger goals.
For that purpose, I have been conducting free online seminars which have turned out to be very popular. My last seminar was seen live by over 1500 people all across the globe and over 5000 people have watched it already.
Another goal is to make blogging industry famous and more known in India. Currently, very few people know about this field and hardly anyone knows the potential it holds.
For that, I do have plans of holding free seminars all over India and I would love to work in that direction as an opportunity comes along.
My Personal future goal is to get an office and a team in place. Although I currently have over 10 guys working for me remotely from all across the world, I would love to have a team locally present with me.
Academically, I have plans of pursuing Masters in Digital Marketing from one of the top Universities in the world.
So, this is who I am and this is how my efforts and persistence have helped me to stand apart from the crowd.
