Hi, I’m Hari Kumaran, married to a superwoman, started my career as a Courier Boy turned Support Executive turned Product guy and now I’m a Tech-Marketing Entrepreneur with Digital Automation expertise, have worked with 200+ clients, generated over 20 thousand leads.
My Vision is to help 100,000 Professionals & Entrepreneurs create an eco-system around their brand to increase their revenue, making them profitable & scalable.
I thank you for taking the time and visiting my profile.
I will give my best to make sure your time spent here is valued.
I would like to share a little about myself.
From my school days, I was attracted to Maths & Computer.
From childhood, my aim was to study MS IT abroad & become IT Research Engineer.
My Dad was into business and he had contact with many celebrities, IAS, IPS. He even took me to our Chief Minister’s house once.
If anyone approaches my Dad for help, without any hesitation, he would do his best using his network and help them.
I completed my Diploma in Computer Technology and had been waiting for my B. Tech joining formalities. My dad business had a fallout and our family was hit bad financially, so I couldn’t pursue my studies further.
Stepping to my Career
Since studies was not an option now, so started wandering for a job. I got my first job as a courier boy. It was not the one for me since I was passionate about tech & computer. I had to quit the job after two months.
With the help of reference, I went for an interview at BPO and got selected. It was related to computers and I was so excited about. I started as a temporary vendor, handing BPO operations for e-learning clients.
Within a few months, based on my performance, they moved me to their own payroll and made me a permanent employee.
The year 2006, my dad expired and everything changed. I took full responsibility for the family. I was referred to another company by a friend. I got selected with a better package. My role was to handle support & operation for US Team, Night Shift. I requested the management for Shift due to family constraints.
After 6 months, I was moved to the day shift. Where I lead the technical team (Internal CRM Product), the backbone of the company’s operation across all departments. I got to work with all the division and business head. I was involved in various projects, among which one had tripled the vertical revenue for the company.
Recession Hit Me
It was 2009, I was managing my family expenses and my sister studies.
I got into office, My boss calls me into the meeting room.
He says – “Hari, you have been a great asset for the company, but the company is not performing well, we are going down. I’m sorry that we have to let you go”
I accepted and left the company. I started searching again for a job, but the recession hit everywhere.
It hit me even more hard, I couldn’t get a job anywhere.
Again I was called back to my previous company and was offered the same role with the lesser package. Due to the financial constraints, I accepted and gave my best. Deep inside I had the inner feeling to start my own entrepreneur journey.
Everything was going great for me with my family & office. My sister got married and had her firstborn son. He reminded me of my father and my mindset started to focus and think about business. I was in my comfort zone, I took the hard call and left the job this time on my own.
The Entrepreneur Unleashed
I started my own proprietorship company, first product was an informative blog and a showtime site, which aggregated 5 continent data in a single site, had more than 2 Lakhs showtimes per day. Later I got a BPO eLearning project from a leading MNC, referred by an old colleague. I got around 5-15 employees working in the project based on the contract. The project ran for more than a year and the client wanted to close the contract and I had to shut the BPO operations.
Meantime I invested more on learning new technologies and digital marketing. I kept practicing and implemented the learning with my own projects.
I also got a few freelancing projects and started earning online.
I was unable to secure the investment to scale the product, So I kept my own product running at a minimal cost.
I was looking for an alternative gig to earn money to stabilize my finances. I got a call from another ex-colleague, he was looking for a partner to take care of technology and marketing for his new startup plan. We met and discussed it then we took off and decided to take it to the next level and started the company.
I work as CTO (Chief Technology Officer) for one for the most promising digital agency in Chennai. I got to work with many brands and SME.
I head the team of developers, digital marketer, and creative designers.
The more I helped other businesses, the more I could see myself grow as a person – getting more mature in my understanding of marketing and implementation.
I started to network and learn from some of the best marketers in the world.
I thought about shifting gears, so I decided to get into information marketing, by creating and selling my own digital courses.
My Vision is to educate 100,000 Marketers & Entrepreneurs understand Digital, help them develop a system and strategies to increase their revenue, making them more profitable & scalable.
I really look forward to knowing more about you. Let’s be in touch, follow me on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram make sure you subscribe to my website, to stay in tune with all that I’m doing online and offline.
