My name is Richie Richardson and I was born in Mumbai.
When I was 11 I shifted to Tamil Nadu, Salem as it is the birthplace of my Dad.
I completed my higher secondary education from St. John’s. For College I chose SAMS in Chennai.
I had enrolled in B.E. Marine Engineering and completed it with in 2011.
In my final years, I had ample time so dabbled in freelance writing.
I wrote for various SEO consultants.
Once, it got me thinking what these people were doing with my written work. I found out that they built websites, placed ads on them and made money.
It got intrigued.
I built my first website. However, instead of selling ads I sold my service as a writer.
I received an offer instantly and was paid 2000 INR for 500 words. At that time an average writer was paid 350 INR for 500 words.
It was a sweet and nice income.
It was in 2011 and 2012.
In 2012 my Dad fell sick and succumbed to Cancer.
My dreams of sailing as a Marine Engineer was shattered. I had no idea of sailing. Therefore, I stick with writing.
Then instead of writing for others I started creating my own sites and ranking them for competitive keywords.
My very first site used to make me $1000 per month.
Then I shared my knowledge at a SEO forum. Several people contacted me to do SEO for their websites.
This is when I took a step further.
I started charging people to help rank their websites.
It was simply great and I have never looked back from it.
Although I am currently helping my clients, I still run a couple of my own sites which is my second stream of money.
