Online Marketing Consultant, Keynote Speaker
Who am I ?
Founder of AAR Consultancy, I am an MBA, holding multiple certifications from top institutes and corporations including Google, and has over 11 years in managing online marketing campaigns, for a long list of companies, in very diverse industries. I am an Online Marketing Consultant, noted keynote speaker and trainer.
Things were not always, that good. After several mistakes in life, he came to Singapore, with house mortgaged, $100,000 in debt to complete his graduation at a ripe age of 25. Studying and sitting in class with other students 6-7 years younger. To add to pressure of success, his dad was over 60 years, a service man now retired.
Fast forward to 10 years later, having gone through death of closed ones, an accident that almost took his wife away from him, battling finances and health, and almost running away from home, he now owns a house, has a beautiful wife and an awesome son. He says: parents, sister & God has been his guide, wife his strongest support and 1-year-old son his inspiration. In-fact having such a beautiful gift – his son - Aarush, has been the turning point in his life. He has been very ably supported by his in-lawstoo. He says ," I was very lucky to have my family always by my side".
Every struggle has made him more determined to succeed and help companies honestly and sincerely. He doesn’t want to be sitting down anymore, he left his work even though monthly incomes were coming in and set out to sincerely make a difference with his skills.
AAR Consultancy was started to help companies manage their online visibility more effectively. Soumik clearly states “I am not your average vendor or agency, my job is to work with you, to work for your success together”
His clients already have ad vendors, but he works with them to make sure they are generating the right results, training their staff and jumping in hands on if help is required for Search Engine optimization, AdWords, social or more.
His vision, “Every dollar earned is so important, there shouldn’t be a scenario where clients spend more than what they get, I want to help clients get more knowledgeable and make wise decisions for their online marketing strategy. AAR is the first 3 alphabets of my son’s name, I wouldn’t tarnish it and delivery only top quality work. My objective, your success!”
