About Me

aq-characterMy name is Abdul Qadir and I’ve been living and breathing all things digital since 2003, at times (some might say sadly) I even dream about digital marketing and new ways to improve and enhance the experience and profitability of business owners. I am a Digital Marketer and Strategist helping companies, brands and people convert Digital Media into Profits.

I’m the kind of person who tends to shun the spotlight, I like to work behind the scenes, and I’m not the kind of guy who feels comfortable blowing my own trumpet – maybe that’s not a good thing, or then again.

My life, like yours has had some incredible ups and downs.

Here, I write about my struggle – how I came from nothing and became what I am today – a self-taught, digital marketer, writer, activist and aspiring politician, living a life of total freedom.

My hope is that by sharing how I changed my life, I can help you change yours. There’s a magic that happens when one person, who’s going through a hard time talks to someone who’s been there before.

That’s what this website is.

I mainly write about these things:

Work. How to make enough money online to quit your job forever.
Startups. How to work, invest and grow in the startup culture.
Life. How to deal with depression, fear, anxiety and fun stuff like that.
Art. Because art and music make the Universe a better place.

I love spreading my knowledge and educating and helping small and medium sized businesses in how they can embrace and benefit from the power of the internet and I enjoy contributing to their growth and success.

Why The Blog?

I see people every day who are completely lost who just need a little advice and a push in the right direction.

I can’t approach everyone I see on the street or in the gym and tell them that there’s a better way. (I’ve tried and it doesn’t work) But I can write about the things I’ve learned and allow anyone who wants to do better a chance to learn from my experiments.

Maybe that’s you.

If you’ve ever questioned your reality and wanted to do something bigger – than stay tuned. That’s exactly what I did and that’s what I talk about here.

Over the past 13 years I’ve observed success and failure of people across the digital and online marketing world and have concluded that online marketing takes a lot of sustained effort, trial and error, detailed learning and patience. I’m convinced if you’re prepared to put in the effort then the fruits available from Online Marketing are abundant and sufficient for everyone.

With over thirteen solid years of expertise behind me I have enjoyed a good deal of success in the following areas;

SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
Social Media Management & Marketing
SIM (Strategic Internet Marketing)
Online Brand Positioning
PPC (Pay Per Click Management)
Digital Marketing Strategy
Internet Based Branding and PR
Website Audit and Analytics
Lead Generation
Web site Traffic Growth

My expertise I feel is really to do with maximizing the full range of tools available to succeed online, I’m constantly learning and researching to improve my skills – the more complex the project or challenge the more I enjoy it. OK, so maybe I have to admit to being a fully paid-up geek.

Thank you for reading this, and I hope to see you around here more often.

I’ll see you out there,
Abdul Qadir (AQ)
