“Who is this guy Anik Singal? Voted top 3 Businessmen under 25 by Business Week Magazine!
There’s lots of big name marketers out there. Why should anybody listen to HIM?”
Good question. I ask it myself whenever I download a free report. Qualifications matter!
An online marketer should be willing to share his or her “resume” with you. Especially if he’s promising to show you how to build a business empire.
So let me share a little bit about him… and why I’m writing this blog post. Anik Singal is the Founder and CEO of Lurn, Inc., as well as a few other companies: Lurn Solutions Pvt. Ltd. in India, JuJuQ Inc. here in the USA, and Kurma Group, his own private consulting firm. Lurn, Inc. has grown so fast, he won an Inc. 500 award two years in a row.
He started building this online empire just like everyone else does – with a single product.
He was a student at the University of Maryland. He won $100 at a Super Bowl party and decided to invest it in starting an online business.
That was back in December of 2004, and the product that launched his empire was called Affiliate Classroom.
It was the first of a long list of successful marketing education products, including the JuJuQ Network, PPC Classroom, Income Kick Start, IMade500, ReadWriteEarn, and AC Certified.
While creating and releasing those products, he built an e-learning company with a mission. His goal is to create a more prosperous world by showing people everywhere how to create an online information business.
In the process Anik Singal fulfilled a lifelong dream: to create a non-profit organization to help kids all over the world get an education. It’s called For All Our Good, and he is supporting schools in India right now.
He is also working on another goal: To build an online empire based on solid values and good people. His companies now employ 75+ team members in the U.S. and India.
And you know what? Anik has got even bigger plans!
Maybe that’s why he was one of the top three finalists in Business Week’s Top 25 Best Young Entrepreneurs in the U.S. in 2008. Anik Singal has been an entrepreneur since he was a little kid, selling baseball cards for a profit.
And more importantly, he has been “thinking like an entrepreneur” since he was a freshman in college. His dreams have always been to run multiple profitable online companies – an “empire.” That empire will give him the freedom to create new businesses, raise money for good causes, and follow his other dreams.
Like everyone else in this business, Anik made a LOT of mistakes.
The first information product he ever developed was a flop. But he didn’t let that, or things like a serious illness, stop him. I guess he must be just plain stubborn – not a bad trait to have if you’re building an empire!
Anik Singal soon figured out how to generate five figures a week with simple online promotions that he could do in a few hours a week. He then used that money to start Affiliate Classroom… and he kept on reinvesting and building and learning, and is now running a $10 million a year company, smaller ventures poised to earn another $1-2 million, and he has sold over $32M online in just 6 years.
