How Writing Can Transform Your Life - The Marketing Nerdz Podcast
Growing up, I was a BIG time introvert. I HATED not being able to express myself. The only way I could communicate with the world back then was via Sports. I was a district level player in Cricket and Table Tennis. I won a lot of awards for my school. And I was also a part of the music-band in my school. So sports and music is how I got all the attention back then. But my inability to express myself always pinched me. And after school, when my parents did not support my career in sports and wanted me to do Engineering first and then MBA... I felt as if someone had taken away one of my legs. It felt like a ruthless cut out of the Blue. And I wasn't able to fight or take a stand for myself back then. Else, who knows, maybe, you would have seen me in one of the IPL teams. A left hand opening batsman for Mumbai Indians, eh? With sports gone. The music aspirations were gone too. Everyone in my band moved to different cities. To compensate, during my Engineering, I found another way to express myself. The Gym. So you see, when I look back now, the pattern is pretty self-evident. Everything I did in my life was a way to compensate for my inability to communicate or to be able to express myself. My passion, my interests were all around things that could help me get attention. Since I got very little of it. No wonder, I wanted to become an Actor after I got done with my Engineering. It seemed like the easiest way to get attention. In fact, I pursued a career in acting for at least a couple of years. From doing Theater to acting in a couple of shows for UTV back then. Things looked good. I could have done well as an actor if I had pursued it for long. But after a point, while I was going through some health issues, I just lost interest. I decided that I don't want to pursue my passion for acting any longer. I just quit. To me, wanting to become an actor was a way to learn how to express myself freely. And although I did that as the characters I was asked to play. But the REAL me, the REAL Karan still was an introvert. As soon as I was done acting.As soon as I heard the word CUT from my director - I would be back to who I was all my life - An INTROVERT. So becoming an actor did not help me become who I thought I would. And in between all of this, I now had to think about making money, building a career... I did not realize that I had become an Adult. So I kept dabbling from one thing to another. And stumbled upon writing one fine day thanks to Sandhya Valecha. At that point, learning how to write was just a way to make money and make ends meet. I did not really think of writing as a way to resolve and overcome something that I had been fighting all my life. But surprisingly, the more I wrote, the better I got at writing - the better I got at communicating. The better I got at expressing myself. When I was researching about the connection between writing, thinking, and communication - I was surprised to know that writing is also used as a modality by therapists to help people transform their lives, personalities, and self-image. No wonder, I become a better communicator. Thanks to learning how to write, I can now express myself freely. I was able to overcome years of my inhibitions. And make a lot of money and build a fairly successful career on my own terms. Learning how to write changed my life, it can change your life too. Listen to this podcast episode for more details.

How I Went From Charging $5 to $100 Per Article In 2014
I started my Freelance Copywriting journey by writing for clients who paid peanuts. I was charging as low as $0.5 per article at the start of my career. And after months of working for an average of $1 per article... I slowly managed to increase my rates to $5 per article. But deep down, I knew, even the $5 I was charging was just crazy low. I saw other writers making the BIG money. But I just couldn't get past $5 barrier. I was almost on the verge to quit back then but something happened. An incident. It completely changed the direction of my life. Thanks to this incident combined with other factors, I was FINALLY able to break the barriers of charging peanuts and move towards getting paid what I deserved. Want to know what happened? Want to know how I increased my rates from $5 to $100 per article? Well, I talk about it in this podcast :) Happy listening!

Ep #58:-3 Changes You Need To Make In Your Digital Marketing Strategy In 2019
Most Digital Marketers are going crazy over Facebook Messenger Bots. I hear so many of them talk about Facebook Messenger Bots changing the Digital Landscape in 2019. Yes, if used in the right context, messenger bots can add a lot of value to your overall marketing game plan. But is it THE THING in 2019? Nope! I don't think so. Yes, the messenger has a high delivery, open and click-through rate. But it's also a very Intrusive and Personal space. You may drive some quick sales with the messenger... But you will end up with far more potential customers disassociating from you or your brand with constant bombardment over the Facebook messenger. No matter what you call it... Delivering value, giving Lead Magnets... there is still a sense of personal space that we associate with the messenger. It's like selecting short-term gains over long-term leverage. To me, here are the 3 Big Shifts you need to make in your Digital Marketing Strategy in 2019 to continue to Build a Brand that stays relevant in the long run.

Ep #56: #1 Business Mistake -Perfection!
In this episode of The Marketing Nerdz Podcast, I share the #1 Mistake Business Mistake most people do out there while starting their businesses! Well, when you are starting out your Business, your complete focus should be on getting the numbers rolling, getting sales for your product/services. However, that's where a majority of the people get stuck at. That is because most of them focus on all the other things but sales while starting out! The #1 Business Mistake I talk about in this episode is "perfection" With Perfection, I mean the desire to have the perfect logo, perfect font, perfect visiting cards, offer letters etc. People often spend a lot of time in making things perfect which don't really count in terms of ROI for the Business. Sharing a personal example, I share how I too made this mistake when I first started out and how it hit back. If you are working on making the allied things perfect and not focusing on driving sales or income for your Business, you are making a big mistake! So, "Stop playing the perfection game" and "do the work". Get things started and moving. If you have to run an eCommerce shop, build a store on Shopify, Run Facebook Ads and understand how your target audience is responding to your message. Analyse if they want what you're offering, get the numbers rolling and side by side get your other allied things in place too! So, to conclude, your goal if you're starting out a business should be to FOCUS on Sales! Avoid this #1 Business Mistake called "Perfection!
