How much impact do you think education and educational institutes like schools and colleges have on the future careers of people?

Ans. : I think less and less. If they start adjusting their education process to teaching you how to critically think, or by teaching you stuff that you’ll use in the real world, I can see how it would be more valuable.

What is your advice to young entrepreneurs out there who wish to make it big in the online world?

Ans. : Learn from your mistakes. Entrepreneurship isn’t easy and you are going to make a lot of mistakes. But if you learn from them and avoid repeating the same ones, you are more likely to succeed.


We have often seen awesome infographics and designs on your website. How do you create them and are there any specific benefit of being so graphic oriented?

Ans : I have someone is in charge of infographics. All he does is come up with topic ideas, do the research and then find designers on Dribbble to design them.

What should be the SEO strategy for any young startup with no previous experience. What should they do when they are venturing into this unknown territory on their own?

Ans. : A young startup shouldn’t focus on SEO. They should focus on building a killer product. Without that, they won’t do well, even if they rank extremely high.


What is according to you the easiest way to make money online?

Ans. : There is no easy way. Anything that is long term requires hard work.


How can someone rank for a specific keyword consistently? What are the factors involved, and how much time does it take to get on the first page of any search engine?

Ans. :  Through content marketing. If you write great content, people will link to you, which will help the overall authority of your website. This will cause your rankings to go up in the long run.
