About Gaurav Madaan

Who is Gaurav Madaan?

Before sharing my journey, i would like to share one important lesson with you. In Life, Sometimes you take bad decisions but never let them consume you, rather step up with the Sun the next day and Move ahead.

Hi there,

My Name is Gaurav Madaan, I am 29 years old Successful (Took a while) Serial Internet Entrepreneur with a zeal to help people grow their business online.

The Internet Dream

My Journey has been more like the deceptive success of being rather than doing but not anymore. Let me explain:

I started back in 2010 when the Internet Bubble happened, those early aged Internet Scammers as the world presumed but we don’t do any of those things.

It all started with a Blog, in 2010 i booked my first domain via a MLM company called In-Online …  Funny i booked a domain name – gauravbuzz.info .. Fast forward today i think that i could have made so much more money have i thought the domain name properly, i am talking about domaining… There are many who do it till date and are quiet successful with it…

I liked the Internet thing more than the whole sales triangle in MLM… I tried to make my website, everything i could imagine in my vivd dreams. From a Social Network to a News site – i had no clue what i was doing..

And then i discovered Google Adsense, oh boy i have seen so many of us start there..

….Imagining the good old days where i used to dream of dollars every morning from my Adsense Account.. But, it was damn tough indeed..

So i took another route, Ever heard of Omegle? It’s a website where one can chat with Strangers, and i had my aha moment right there..

So i created a page where i placed an Adsense banner, the Head Line read “If you want to See me go Live, then Click the Banner Below“

-Says an Imaginary Girl

….I headed to Omegle and dropped a message saying “If you want to see me go live, then click on the link below” in the name of a fictionary girl.

Oh boy, i was getting some serious traffic and accidentally i built my first funnel online that day 😉

Omegle -> Website Landing Page -> Banner (Clicks -> $$$$$)

I was really enjoying the game and did almost my first $100 back in early 2011 with this technique…Until i woke up..

When i woke up next day, dollars cheque did not come, but i did receive an email from Google, i know you are laughing right now – but this has happened to many of us, lol..

It said “Your Account has been disabled

I learnt my lesson – it’s not easy to “Make Money Online” but it is not even difficult provided you build assets and are consistent in nurturing them.. Fast forward March 2017 – I have my first legitimate cheque from Adsense.. Hell Yeah, the ‘feeling is royal indeed’..

June 2017 Update – 163$ Adsense Paid, it took me 5 years to break this road commonly travelled. Since the first one is home, now many more to come every month!

The Realisation is the Biggest Driver

Right after the 2011, i completed my Graduation but the bumpy ride and a tinge of Internet left a lasting mark on my brain, i know it’s too extreme of words i used here but it did last more than an Impression..

So i started exploring possibilities of getting closer to my dream of Internet Marketing.. The closest i could think of was a MBA in Marketing.. Sat for couple of entrance exams and settled for a College named “Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies” Hyderabad Branch..

My expectations were high and i was hoping that they would teach me Google Adwords, Analytics, Facebook Marketing etc.

But as usual life always has a different plan for you.. Unlucky for me that there was not enough of Internet Marketing in College..

These disappointments and investment in education urged me to start my Journey again in the space of Internet.

A mild fight with a friend (Obviously a girl) motivated me to Start “Geekotech” in 2013, now a 7 Figure Business on Internet..  Some fights have a bigger meaning in Life lol..

In 2013, i started blogging in my Internship with Draft FCB Ulka where i also learnt the art of reporting for Google Adwords and worked on some of big clients projects though i just prepared reports..

I learnt a lot from Blogging, and wrote over 100 articles in less than 3 months… I was on fire that time..

After that, i collaborated with 2 of my mates (Sid and Anand) from College who helped shape Geekotech in a refreshing appearance..

Fate is for REAL :

In 2014 (While I was still in college), i was introduced to Mr. Vinod Achanta (A Faculty Member and a very kind person).. He was a practitioner in the field of marketing with a real estate company and also a Digital Marketing Enthusiast..

I never thought after the initial disappointment that ‘College would add any value to me’ but Fate is for REAL…

Vinod Sir helped me to frame my Digital journey as he saw potential in me. He helped me co-host a workshop of 50 Entrepreneurs from India for ISB Goldman Sachs Women Entrepreneurship Program..

ISB 10000 Women Entrepreneurship Programme

Post that workshop, i got my first ever Online Project from a Mumbai Based Transcription client.. The First project is always special..

It was a confirmation of my belief in Digital Media..

But wait, there is more Fate to my story than you have seen till now…

With my belief in Digital Media and my entrepreneurial tendencies, i wanted to Start a Digital Marketing College because i could not get the education i needed in College and could see a Blue Ocean opportunity to get the ball rolling..

But yet again Fate had different plans, Vinod Sir has a family and he could not risk it all and without his support it was hard for me to arrange the setup and the funds..

So i gave up on my Dream and got back to my Hometown post my Masters..

I was contemplating for 50 days and doing nothing but sitting at home. I did not take the job because all i have ever wanted in my life is to be a Digital Entrepreneur and the companies coming to Campus offered nothing much beyond a sales job…

Parents Pressure always Speaks High of You

Being at home, one thing which we have to deal with is Parents Pressure and with a 50 day high it was doing Bharat Natyam on my head… It got to me and i ventured out yet again – starting from Scratch..

2015 it was, I looked for possible Interviews and got one fixed in a span of 1 day.. Went for the interview, cracked it and joined in 2 days.. That was my first ever job, but boy did i tell you that i am a strong believer – i joined as a Digital Marketing Manager in Merkenezer Brandcom continuing my belief towards my Internet Dream..

Bagged a lot of praise in the very first month…

Wait, Fate is Coming !

My Boss introduced me to “Delhi School of Internet Marketing” saying that they reached out to his previous Social Media Manager and asked be a trainer..

My old dream of opening a Digital Marketing School had me pumping and i could not resist myself to reach out to DSIM for an Interview to be a Trainer..

Journey at DSIM as a “Digital Marketing Trainer”

Fate is here, i was interviewed and selected. I was trained by Kunal – Founder of DSIM. He is a gem of a person and had a positive influence on shaping my Career in Digital Marketing..

Before i left DSIM, i had trained 2500+ professionals in the field of Digital Marketing and shaped many lives..

See some of my Videos from Old Batches:

{ You can find a lot of my videos on Youtube 😉 to an extent that i got famous for my Selfie Videos }

I continued with DSIM (First as a Trainer and then as a Training and Delivery Head) for 2 years. Learnt so much during my stay there but there was something spectacular that i witnessed ..

While learning and preparing for my classes, i saw Kunal’s video in which he showed how by promoting famous brands in India as an Affiliate, he was able to make $10,000 in less than a weeks time..

Oh boy, this did lure me and i was back on my journey of making money online!

Under the influence of that Video – i joined my first ever affiliate program with Hostgator and did my first $1000 in affiliate commissions with ease.. (This was just the first month and a pinch of blood for the Tiger, lol)

I still remember, in late 2015 i was searching for Affiliate Guides on Internet to learn more and discovered LukePeerfly blog.. He has got some really classy things on his blog if you aspire to be an Affiliate Marketer..

One fine day, i received an email from Luke Peerfly (Luke Kling) about a newly launched tool called Engagifire and i was excited and did my first transaction in the industry of Tools..

Also this introduced me to Funnels and JVzoo…

In a parallel world my dear friend ‘Saurabh Bhatnagar’ was learning along side with me the nuances of Digital World.. And we were introduced to a tool called ‘SmartMember’ in June 2015.. We took a decision to invest in SmartMember Lifetime License worth $500 and that defined almost everything…

Don’t be afraid to invest money, Life is worth taking chances.. Just be committed to the goal..

We invested in the tool to launch one of our own courses called ‘Internet Profits’ but there was a break in this as Saurabh was still busy with ‘USP’ his last entrepreneurial venture along with 6 other partners…

The JVZoo takeover?

My first ever product on JVZoo was Engagifire – they relaunched in September 2015 and boy it was one amazing promo i cannot forget..

I did $3138 in commissions in merely 7 days!

=> Check The Case Study Here

The JVZoo became a receptive name in my dictionary after this promo

Entered Mr. Fate again….

Since i wanted to launch my own course and leave the job, but Saurabh was still involved in day to day operational activities of USP and this led to the crunch in time for both of us!

It took us longer than expected to formulate the company officially named ‘Geeko Computech Pvt. Ltd.”, ultimately we launched our first course ‘Internet Profits‘ in August 2016.. Well that was a long wait indeed…striving to do something of my own ….

STRUGGLE IS FOR REAL, sometimes with results and sometimes with beginnings.

From Affiliates we became Vendors and have successfully launched 2 SAAS startups namely ‘LiveSutiePro’ and ‘GramKosh

Both of them bagged ‘JVZoo Product of the Day’ did over 2,50,000 $ in (combined sales) the first 7 days of their launch..

Post 2 Successful launches, I was reached by one of the Digital Entrepreneurs in India and he owns a Tool named OptinChat. It’s a great tool that lets you build an email list with an Interactive Style Chat Widget.

I took the opportunity and along with one of my Partners, we launched Optinchat in the Market.

We grossed almost $87,000 in Sales in launch week and the tool was even recommended by Mike Filsaime (Founder of Webinar Jam and Ever Webinar)

Life has been at Peace and we have been working to build sustainable partnerships with more people.

The Stats are not 100% Accurate here, but this is How it looks!

Continuing my Journey in the Launch Space, One of the true Strategic Partnerships we have had in 2018 is with Team LetX.

We have not launched a lot of products this year, but whatever we did – we made sure we scaled it.

With Team LetX being at the Development front, we have launched 3 Products namely LetSpinio, LetSlotio, and StockNation.

All 3 combined have crossed well over $350,000 in revenue.

For most of the Part, we are trying to build a True SAAS which solves a real problem. 

Because of all the Hard work me and my teams have been doing, i also got featured on JVZoo.

I have been working more and more hard to help some of my buddies learn the craft and create their own career in the IM Industry.

Two Names which I would like to Mention are Neha Arora and Nishant Sharma.

They have been working with me for now close to a Year.

And both of them have successfully launched their Products in the International Space.

Neha launched Viraleze in September and grossed close to $25,000, She was also featured by JVZoo recently as the New Star Affiliate in the Month of October (Proud Moment)

Nishant launched VidgrafiX in the month of November and grossed close to $15,000.

I am happy to say, both concluded their first success in 2018.


Life has also taken a new turn, there were a lot of mismanaged things at our end.

Saurabh (My Business Partner and one of the best friends) also moved to Goa.

I along with Roshni Dhal formulated a Parent Brand to manage all my Companies.

Brand Name – Emporia Gusto Private Limited

Roshni is my favourite mentee and has quiet a lot of complimentary skills when it comes to tackling things at a Corporate Level.

We both are now expanding our Operations in the field of Events and also our Indian Operations.

It’s an exciting journey ahead with Roshni and Emporia Gusto.


Don’t put all your Eggs in 1 Basket

Since September 2017, i have been working hard to diversify my channels of Revenue Stream. So one of things which i did is – expanding my List in India.

I started with this place and i am taking it over to next Level. I am trying to help People Learn Social Media Basics for Free. This has helped me to expand my Reach in India because of which i have been getting Various Opportunities to speak at events like India Affiliate Summit, Affiliate Conference India and High Traffic Summit. 

Digital marketing speakers in India

If you have a Event coming up and want me to blow up your Audience with Valuable Insights then do get in touch with me at ‘gm@gauravmadaan.com’

For the Marketing Part, my major focus has been on building Funnels and marketing them.

For Eg:
I build a Book + Webinar funnel for GramKosh 2.0
Yes i wrote a complete book, it’s almost 35 Pages long guide on Instagram Marketing.
Other than that, i like the grill of Facebook Ads – like it’s so much inherent to me now.

I also mentor people on top of whatever i do, and that gives me some real Peace at Heart. Currently i am mentoring 2 People and helping them make a Good Career in Digital Marketing.

Either through Job or through their Own Set Business.

I may start an Underground Training in future, where i would train like 20 People in an Year (But they will be like Amazing Assets for any Business)

Life is uncertain, and can take many Turns. Let us see where it takes us 🙂

On the Professional front, We are continuously trying to innovate in the Digital Space and looking to take our Startups to the next level..

We also continue to evolve as affiliates and have done multiple 5 Figure promos for a lot of Products/Vendors…
