Founder of ClickRetina – Arsh Kapoor
Digital Guruji : May We know, How did the idea for your business come about?
Arsh Kapoor : I was pretty clear in my mind about my future plans regarding ClickRetina from the very beginning, so the idea of establishing a digital marketing company was already quite firm in my mind and the strategies were all set before stepping into this market.
Digital Guruji : What does ClickRetina do?
Arsh Kapoor : Any and everything you need for your website’s development. ClickRetina provides digital marketing services to companies worldwide along with website designing as well as seo training.
Digital Guruji : What were the challenges that you faced initially at Click Retina and how did you overcome it?
Arsh Kapoor : My initial challenges were somewhat severe, there were times when I was abandoned by my staff and suffered major losses on projects that were given a whole year’s time, although I had little support from my family at the beginning that also subsided with time as they realized how well I was going with my company.
Digital Guruji : Does your work have a social motive behind it?
Arsh Kapoor : Yes, my main motive stands to be proving a reliable and efficient digital marketing experience for my clients through my company under a dedicated and punctual atmosphere.
Digital Guruji : Tell us about the people who impacted your journey.
Arsh Kapoor : Genuinely speaking with time I was able to learn a lot from people I met through my journey, some had a bad impact, some also had a good one but in the end, I was able to learn from these influences. As much as I want to give that credit to myself, as I was the one who firmly believed in this idea and brought it up into life but still these things and yangs that influenced me were a major part of my growth.
Digital Guruji : How do you define success? Are you satisfied with your achievements? What is your most significant success to date?
Arsh Kapoor : Success if I define it would be attaining whatever you had dreamt of accomplished and put right within your grasp. My biggest achievement so far in my opinion would be ranking my blog above news channels that were supposed to be at the top for IPL updates. It was quite an impressive impression of my work.
Digital Guruji : Your previous jobs/ventures? What were you doing before choosing this field?
Arsh Kapoor : I worked as an employee for a brief period of 6 months that too during my college time apart from that I was self-employed from the start, so yeah, I never worked for any other organization as such. So yeah, my target was pretty much already set.
Digital Guruji : What are your biggest achievements and falls in your journey?
Arsh Kapoor : My biggest downfall so far would be the parting away of many of my old employees all at once, although if had a negative impact on me it did also have a positive one in certain ways as I was able to learn the ability to stand up from a major setback which prepared me for future obstacles that I might have to encounter.
Digital Guruji : Tell us something about your education & family background.
Arsh Kapoor : I was fortunate enough to be educated at one of the best schools of my city and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in technology in computer science. My family background includes both my parents being bank employees and me as the owner of this company.
Digital Guruji : How has been the support from friends and family?
Arsh Kapoor : Excellent, I did not have much support from my parents initially but all is good now as I am doing quite well with my company, they were able to understand that I was choosing what I was passionate about and later supported me for what I was working hard on. My friends always had my back and supported me at every step, although I had disputes with some but those who stayed supported me all the way.
Digital Guruji : Any Special Achievements you want to share with us?
Arsh Kapoor : Getting partnered with google as a trusted company is one of those special achievements that I will always love to boast about. It was the result of my dedication and perseverance towards this field that made this achievement possible.
Digital Guruji : If you had a magic stick, which are the two things you would change in the world?
Arsh Kapoor : If I had such an opportunity I would definitely want to erase the concept of google algorithm updates. It bugs me a lot! Also, I would want to remove poverty from this world as my second wish.
Digital Guruji : What is the best way to learn digital marketing?
Arsh Kapoor : If it was me putting up my personal view on this topic I would recommend that the best way of doing that would be understanding what the search engine wants your website to be like, following their updates and norms is the key, textbook stuff is what people often tend to lean towards but I feel that would not get you too far in this field.
Digital Guruji : If you had the chance to start your career over again, what would you do differently?
Arsh Kapoor : Definitely, yes! I have a lot that comes into my mind when I think about this, some mistakes that I did in the past which I definitely want to alter which might have had a much greater growth impact on my brand.
Digital Guruji : What inspires you? Whose work has influenced you most?
Arsh Kapoor : Learning from events and people that have been an impact on my journey be it good or bad is what gave me the inspiration, ups and down are a part of life, I’d quote “failures are the stepping stone to success”.
Digital Guruji : Tell us how a day in your life looks like? Your schedule for a day right from the time you get up till you hit the bed at night.
Arsh Kapoor : Quite a simple schedule if I tell you, waking up, greeting my loved ones, off to the company, working the day out and returning back to my residence. Anything a normal person would do but the difference would be working hard for something that inspires you motivates you at the same time.
Digital Guruji : If you were given a choice of meeting any person you want, who will be that person?
