Digital Marketing has taken the world into an unpredictable swirl of digital space. Although the Internet was invented to connect the world, today Internet has far more advanced uses than just connecting people across the continents. Most of the world’s population is invested in digital for one or another reason. There is no simpler way to put it; the Internet is ruling our lives. However, businesses have gained maximum benefits. It is easier to reach your potential client or your target audience through the digital medium. Everyone wants to learn digital marketing, but only some master it.
Gulrez Alam, Founder, and Director of Teamology Softech and Media Services Pvt. Limited, is an expert in Digital marketing. His struggles and experiences have helped him reach great heights. He started Teamology to provide businesses with top-rated digital marketing and digital PR services at an affordable and accessible price. Gulrez has faced many hardships in his life before eventually climbing up the business hierarchy. He says that his relatives told his parents and him that he is a failure and would not achieve anything in his life. There was a time when even his parents did not support him and were losing hope. But as the quote goes, God helps those who help themselves – Gulrez only came out stronger after each setback. He knew what he wanted to do in life and consistently worked towards one goal.
Gulrez Alam, who was uninterested in studies and did not have any direction in life after completing his 12th, never gave up and completed his Masters in Computer Application. He then earned a certificate for completing Google Fundamentals of Digital Marketing and Digital Sales. Despite his qualifications, he remained unemployed for some time, and the relatives who had already formed terrible opinions about him further discouraged him. Nonetheless, he never let those comments affect him and interned in a Delhi-based company as a software developer for a stipend of Rs. 2500 every month. He then worked for multiple IT firms. Due to his interest in Digital Marketing, he spent his free time learning about the ins and outs of the field. From a person who knew nothing about the field, he went on to become one of the most successful Digital Marketers.
Gulrez has set an example for everyone who believes that we must find our passion and profession in one go. We must understand that sometimes we have to patiently wait while still working hard.
