December 6, 2023: Junaid Ahmad Dar (27), an engineering student from Kashmir, left his engineering field three years ago, for his dreams. Yes, a dream that revolutionized the entire marketing strategy of Jammu & Kashmir. This young talent while talking to a reporter of QNS revealed that it was in the year 2019 when he got introduced to the idea of digital marketing. Seeing the scope and considering the digital growth of the surrounding, he decided to learn digital marketing. But, unfortunately, there wasn’t a single institution or mentor present in his state. Then he decided to go for a course in Delhi but was again hindered due to covid-19 lockdown.
Forced to move back to his state and lacking internet connectivity, he lost a year in this mess. But as soon as 2G was restored, he started following a very successful digital marketer namely Digital Deepak which was referred to him by a friend from Gujrat. Fortunately, he got an internship from him and got started. “There is no looking back from that day”, he adds.
Right now Junaid owns the first and the most successful digital marketing agency in Jammu and Kashmir. From becoming the first choice of businesses for marketing in J & K to mentoring the people of his state in his field, he became the youngest person to launch the first digital marketing institution in J & K which is called Digi-Go. He has 6 branches of Digi-Go in various districts. Not only professionally fit, but he also takes personal fitness real seriously too. Adventure sports are part of his life apart from all the work like Snow-skiing, water-skiing, Paragliding.
Junaid wants to aware people of the possibilities and opportunities of marketing through digital marketing. “I want to change the perception of people of my state towards digital marketing so as to develop more opportunities for unemployed youth”, He adds.
“My vision has become the vision of many people which makes me confident about the fact, that I have succeeded in my career which in turn motivates me and makes me more dedicated to my work. And I know it will get better and better InshAllah”, he concludes.
