My name is Ravi Jayagopal. I’m the Co-founder & Co-developer of DigitalAccessPass.com, a membership plugin & marketing platform for WordPress.
I launched my first web site in 1997, and I’ve been selling digital products online ever since.
I have coached, trained and mentored thousands of clients, and I’ve helped them create a profitable online business using digital products, membership sites and recurring subscriptions.
I was the first Indian (back when I was still living in India) to sell a physical book online to an international market, back in 1998. After failing at two brick-n-mortar businesses in India, looking for better opportunities in the online world, I moved from India to New York in 2000, taking on a programming job. As a hobby, working nights and weekends, I developed and marketed the first-ever digital download protector software for Paypal and ClickBank.
In 2007, I wrote my first (“real”) book “No Business Like E-Business” which went on to become an Amazon category best-seller at the time (don’t buy it yet – it’s outdated right now – coming up with a new edition next year).
I invented Content Dripping (no, seriously, I did! 🙂 . In 2008, I created the first-ever WordPress membership plugin, DigitalAccessPass.com (DAP), that was the first piece of software ever, to do content dripping.
I’m the creator of CoolCastPlayer.com, the prettiest podcast player on the planet 🙂
I am the author of a book about membership sites, by the same name.
I have an online course called “Premium Podcasting: How to Create, Deliver and Monetize Premium Audio Content and Deliver it in 4 Different Ways: 1) Audio Player on a Page 2) Downloadable MP3 links 3) Premium Podcast and 4) Mobile App” at PremiumPodcasting.com .
I have a second podcast where I discuss my favorite Business, Tech & Life Hacks at CutToTheChase.fm
I have an eBusiness Academy at SubscribeMe.fm/academy
I am the creator & developer of S3MediaVault.com, a WordPress plugin to help you securely deliver Audio, Video & PDF
I have been a full-time entrepreneur since 2010, living in sunny San Diego, CA, with my brilliant and beautiful wife Veena Prashanth (who is the co-founder & co-developer of DAP), 2 amazing and precious kids, and a male dog inexplicably named Vanilla!
Coming from humble beginnings in India, through my family foundation in India, my wife Veena and I give back as much as we can, to children and communities in extreme poverty.
