About Me (Of course!)
Bio: A Digital Marketing Consultant in Bangalore
And as always, for any one-on-one consulting and assistance, you may contact me at email@example.com
Hi, I am Tariq and I am a certified Digital Marketing Consultant in Bangalore. I’ve got 16+ years of experience in Sales & Marketing.
Was I always keen on becoming a Digital Marketing Consultant?
Well, honestly, I’m really not sure. I guess the perks of being in the IT Capital of India, i.e., Bangalore (if you didn’t know), every second person you bump into is a techie. Well, almost!
And I guess that rubs on to you! 😉
Having said that, I did complete my Mechanical Engineering (yes, nothing related to Digital Marketing) from BMS College of Engineering back in 1999. Come to think of it, I’m still not sure why I did my Mech. Engineering. And I still can’t figure out how I cleared all my papers! Man!!!
Oh yes! I almost forgot. I did complete my GNIIT too from NIIT. Hmm… if I recall, it was on ‘Diploma in Computer Engineering’. And that is precisely how I landed my first job as a web developer, back in 2000.
And I suppose, this is where the interest in the online space all started.
While I wouldn’t have called myself as a Digital Marketing Consultant at that point in time, I did start developing websites, email marketing, SEO, and Content writing for a number of clients, both in Bangalore and Internationally, since mid-2004.
In 2004, I did foray into Real Estate too. Yup! A completely different sector altogether from Digital Marketing. And while I preach to focus on only one niche, I seem to have real estate in my blood too! 😉
Yes, I did have my highs and lows (big low in fact) with this sector. And while I am updating this content (October 2020), I am revamping my real estate business to something really exciting.

Journey as a Digital Marketing Consultant in Bangalore
While I have been consulting for clients since 2004, I actively started operating as a Digital Marketing Consultant in Bangalore in 2012. I decided to take this more seriously and even completed my Certification in Digital Marketing from DigiPerform.
More than the certification, I guess this course gave me the confidence of operating as a Digital Marketing Consultant. And above all, it helped me meet my mentor – Mohit Rathi. (Follow Mohit Rathi on Instagram).
If there’s a push I ever needed to create my online courses, well, Mohit is the one. And someday, I will try to match up to his level of expertise!
Mind you, I said ‘try’. 😉
He’s truly awesome with his courses. You could find all his courses at Mohit Rathi Academy.
