The internet has fascinated me since I was 13. When I made my first online purchase in 2006, I instantly realised the promising potential of the digital marketplace. Since then, I’ve sold millions of dollars’ worth of products and services for corporate giants like The Washington Post, OZY, Ellucian Inc, etc. My dual degrees in Advertising and Marketing have helped me possess a decade of experience in Marketing Strategy, Budgeting, SEM, SEO, Social Media, Email Marketing, Agency Management, Analytics, Online Presence and Reputation Management. I’ve successfully solved global business problems by heading digital teams in USA, India, UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

    “It was nice to work with Varangi. V ., he has got professional approach and delivered very interesting results in a contest. His ideas were far more unique, you can tell a person really trying to deliver non ordinary result and serious thoughts were put into his contest entry. Far excited anyone else's entries, so this win was justified. Happy to work with him again.”
