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 for the past 20 years. 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’ve been a pioneer in the online digital marketing space. I was the first Indian ever (back when I was still living in India) to sell a physical book online to an international market, way back in 1998. After failing at 2 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 world’s first download protector software for Paypal and ClickBank.
In 2007, I wrote my first book “No Business Like E-Business” which went on to become an Amazon category best-seller at the time (don’t buy it – it’s outdated right now – coming up with a new edition next year).
And I invented “Content Dripping“. Yes, I actually did 🙂
In 2008, I created the world’s first-ever membership plugin for WordPress, DigitalAccessPass.com (DAP), that was the first software ever to do content dripping.
I am also the author of a book about membership sites, by the same name.
I am officially the “Coolest Geek On The Planet” (search Google for those words and you’ll see).
I live in San Diego, California with my beautiful and brilliant 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, I would consider myself a highly successful internet entrepreneur, and through my family foundation in India, my wife Veena and I give back as much as we can, to Indian children and communities in extreme poverty.
