Muhammed Abdul Kalam’s story proves that you always don’t need the money and support to fulfill your dreams; hard work and diligence are enough. Kalam has started his Facebook page “Online Peeps” in the year 2012 and started to gain more and more knowledge about the same that includes increasing the traffic on the page and other marketing ways. He has researched about it on YouTube and other various other platforms and gathered all the necessary information. He contacted other admins of the Facebook page to get some knowledge, but no one attended the request of this guy seriously. As a result, he got demotivated. He neither had the funds nor much knowledge but he motivated himself again with the belief that,
“Once you have the determination to do something, the doors of success will automatically get opened for you.”
Kalam started providing Digital Marketing services to several clients located in Kerala and around the globe. After a few deals, he has sufficient funds to start again. He began researching and found that everybody is busy in grabbing the “Elite Audience” and no one is interested in the Rural and Malayalam Speaking audience.
