“Extra! Extra!” 🙂
I launched my first web site in 1997, and I’ve been selling digital products online ever since.
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Business Like E-Business” which went on to become an Amazon category best-seller at the time (don’t buy it now – it’s outdated right now – coming up with a new edition soon).
I created the concept of 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.
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.
