It’s time again to shine the spotlight on one of JVZoo’s very distinguished users. Today we are speaking to Gaurav Madaan, who has successfully navigated the internet marketing waters to reach many personal and professional milestones during his online career so far. In today’s interview, you will learn how he has taken what seemed at one time to be an impossible dream of becoming an online entrepreneur and made it a reality, AND discover the one thing Gaurav cannot live without during a product launch!
JVZoo: Hi, Gaurav! Tell us a little about yourself!
GM: My Name is Gaurav Madaan, I am an entrepreneur with key expertise in marketing and content. I have been in the industry for 5 Years and have trained more than 3000+ professionals in the space of Internet Marketing. Other than that, I, along with my Team, have launched 2 SAAS products and generated over $500,000 in sales as a Vendor.
JVZoo: How long have you been involved in affiliate marketing?
GM: Back in 2013, I saw a video online where the Instructor was claiming to have done $10,000 in commissions in 1 month. That is the time when I decided that I wanted to see how Affiliate Marketing works and make it a profession. It looked impossible back then (Earning $10k in a day), but today I know that’s not even 1 day’s earnings for most of the Top Affiliates.
JVZoo: How long have you been working online?
GM: I started in the true sense back in 2013 with a Tech blog named ‘Geekotech’ and today it’s one of my companies 🙂 It’s been 5 Years (all in) in the profession. Though I started doing Affiliate Marketing full time in 2015. In my initial days, I did lots of Offline Consulting for brands across India.
JVZoo: What kind of obstacles did you have to overcome in order to pursue this method of earning income?
GM: I would say that there were lots of obstacles in my journey, though one that I could highlight is lack of guidance. I could not find a mentor early in my life to guide me through the journey. I had to stumble across things by myself.
JVZoo: What is your preferred niche and how did you choose it?
GM: My preferred Niche is MMO (Make Money Online) at a broader level and Social Media Marketing at a narrower scale. It just keeps getting better and bigger with every sunrise.
JVZoo: What advice would you give someone who is just getting started as a vendor and/or as an affiliate?
GM: I would suggest for you to build your email list by giving something for FREE in exchange for their email if you are just getting started as an Affiliate. And if you starting as a Vendor, then build a Prelaunch List. In both cases, the responsive targeted leads do wonders.
JVZoo: If you could start over, what would you do differently?
GM: If I were to start again, I would build scalable evergreen long-term Self Propelling Affiliate Funnels. It simply means that I would build something that does not need work over and over again.
JVZoo: What has been your greatest success to date in your online career?
GM: There have been a number of moments where I felt I have achieved a Milestone. But one that particularly stands out is an Affiliate Promotion which I did to my Indian List with the help of a Webinar in 2015. I was able to pull out a promo of $7000 with the help of that Webinar. That was the wonder moment for me as I never thought that people in India would buy with that intensity.
JVZoo: How did you learn the ins and outs of internet marketing?
GM: Particularly in the Internet Industry, I never had a true mentor. I have stumbled my way through different courses and each one has been really valuable. All I can say is, I would have reached this stage a little earlier – if there were a mentor. Mentorship is a really important part of one’s Life and you should have one if you can find one.
JVZoo: How do you utilize JVZoo in your affiliate marketing pursuits?
GM: For the last 2 Years, I have been an Affiliate and a Vendor on JVZoo. As a Vendor, most of our revenue for our own products comes through JVZoo Affiliates. It has been a true game changer and has helped us to scale our business without having to worry about all the technicalities.
JVZoo: What are you currently working on?
GM: We are currently working on scaling our existing projects and doing good trainings around them so that it helps people to grow their business in a right-guided manner. I am also partnering up with other new vendors to help them set up their own SAAS businesses.
JVZoo: Where can we find you online?
GM: You can always find me on my Blog – http://gauravmadaan.com
Also, I can be found on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/gauravmadaan04/
JVZoo: And, finally, what is one thing you cannot live without during a product launch?
GM: It’s REMARKETING – One of the things which is highly underestimated. I get my ad straight up and tightened to maximize every click that my partner Affiliates send to me.
