    Hi Friends,

    Long story short, In 2005 June completed my Bachelor Engineering Degree in Electrical field. After that in search of job, i came to know that we can also earn money through online. At that time i am completely newbie to Internet even my first email id was created by my friend :)

    So, i decided to start and read many ebooks by purchasing and tried different methods but no proper success. Almost 2 years no regular monthly income source, so in 2007 joined in small company in India for salary of Rs.4,000(Approx. $90) per month. At that time one of my colleague suggested few forums and earning with adsense.

    Found Old Salary Cheque:

    First Adsense Earnings:

    Started few blogs but failed to get traffic, at the time came to know the importance of SEO. Started learning basic things about SEO and really liked the work and challenges involved in this, so finally decided to settle in this field only.

    In 2008 i started link building work for few clients, since then slowly improved my team size and made this SEO service is as my full time business.

    Almost 3 years i have waited to see some success and in the past 7 years i have seen many ups and downs.

    For any kind of business my first priority is "Customer Support"

    I believe in: "Necessity is the mother of invention"

    Analyze what people are looking for and start your new business.

    Finally, "Don't wait for Opportunities Create them As Per Your Requirement" :)

    As of know, this is my story. Sorry if anything bored you. Just thought to share this with you all. My SEO journey continues....

    Thanks to all my friends, business partners & family who give continuous support.

    I wish all success to those who are entering to SEO field...


    Thanks,
    IamKing

    $90 per month? I am guessing you're not from the U.S., because that would be illegal here. That would practically be slavery here.

    Congrats and some good tips :)

    I've completed 7 years myself and been through a journey of being broke to financially carefree. I've learnt this - don't give up & work tirelessly. IM is a really difficult profession where 90% of the people (with get rich quick mentality) never ever see $1k or even $100 & end up quitting. But Those who keep at it long enough do succeed for sure. The long term mentality will make you survive even in the worst conditions.

    From 2005 to 2007 part time, Full time since 2008. Continue your college do some part time and learn the things. After finishing your college then decide to continue full time or part time. You need to be satisfied with what you are doing then only you can work for long time.

    Thank you. Yes we need to learn through out our life.

    Just now edited the 1st post. I am from India. That was my first earnings.

    Thank you to all.

    Thank you. Yes you are right. We need to have lot of patience and self motivation is important. Congrats to you also..Keep going :)

    "Necessity is the mother of invention"

    I loved that. As real as life.

    Little offtopic. IM is not as easy as it looks, specially at the beginning which is by far , the hardest period. Spending long hours locked a room without seeing the money coming in , is the main reason forcing newbies to quit withing the first 3 months.

    Another important thing you mentioned "i have seen many ups and downs." Stay in businesses when your online empire is falling down. I have seen many successful members here who quit IM because their methods stopped making money or after being hit by any panda / youtube / social media sites update. You can easily go from Hero to Zero in no time. If you did it once , you will make it again. Never quit. Take a short holidays if you need them, but come back.
