In today’s competitive business world, it can be very difficult for businesses to survive – let alone be successful. And surely in such a situation, going all the way up from the bottom is a commendable job. Similar is the story of Vishal Jain, a young entrepreneur from India who has reached heights of success in just 4 years.
A digital marketer by profession and an entrepreneur by passion – that is what defines Vishal Jain, the founder of Sunshy Group of Companies that currently owns 5 companies: Sunshy Digital Marketing Agency, Realstagram, Social Media Marketing Specialist, Sunshy Enterprises and Sunshy Jewels, all founded by the 23 years old entrepreneur by himself.
It is hard to believe but like other famous entrepreneurs, such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, Vishal is also a college dropout. “I wanted to skip college and start my own business from the very beginning, but I knew my parents wouldn’t agree. So for the sake of getting a degree, I got into a university. However, I soon realised that I cannot do it. Thus, I left,” he says.
Initially, things were tough for him. He had to wait for quite some time before he could start his own venture as he lacked finance. He did not want to borrow from anyone, so he decided to earn money online. He looked for ways to do so and came across Fiverr, a freelancing platform where people provide many different services.
Vishal signed up on Fiverr and started working there. He used to take up different small jobs such as data entry, data research, transcribing and providing virtual assistant services. “I remember In my first month I worked 20 hours a day and made only $30 ,” he said. Soon, he noticed that social media marketing and graphic designing are becoming popular and that these services are demanded by a lot of people all over the world, so he decided to become a digital marketer.
After spending months going through Youtube videos and articles on Quora, Vishal learned the basics of digital marketing and started providing these services on different freelancing platforms. He learned a lot during this period and using that knowledge, he opened his own marketing agency named Sunshy Digital Media Agency.
This was Vishal’s first achievement since he dropped out of college and he knew that from this point onwards, success is inevitable. Eventually, he also founded 2 more companies in the same category – Realstagram and Social Media Marketing Specialist.
Both of these companies provide a variety of Social media services, such as getting real targeted followers and likes, getting new leads which helps the brand grow sales and providing consultancy on anything related to social media sites.
Using his expertise, Vishal also wrote an eBook, Journey To A Million Dollars, in which he mentioned ways in which any influencer or company can increase its real following on Instagram, leading to more leads, sales and collaborations. According to him, this book contains everything you need to become an ‘Instagram Superstar’. The book is available for purchase online.
Apart from this, he also owns Sunshy Enterprises, a manufacturing company that produces industrial goods and Sunshy Jewels, a high-end fashion jewellery store that sells exclusively handpicked and handmade jewellery.
Owing to his achievements, Vishal Jain was also invited to be a member of the Forbes Agency Council, that are invitation-only communities for the executive leaders and leading entrepreneurs in a variety of industries and countries. He is currently a member of the council and was interviewed by Forbes as well.
Vishal Jain is definitely an inspiration for the young, aspiring entrepreneurs looking for a direction.
