Hi, this is Tariqul. Welcome to my story
Since the beginning of my journey as a freelance developer nearly 10 years ago, I’ve done remote work for agencies, startups, and collaborated with talented people to create digital products for both business and consumer use.
My focus is always on the results/outcomes instead of the services I provide. I believe every business spends for the result, not for the products or services. I always remind myself that the best way to win is to make my clients the winner. So all the deals I make is win-win for both parties, otherwise no deal.
How did I start? Why do I do what I do?
It started 12 years ago when I was 15 years old. I can still remember the day I first write my own computer program. I was so amazed by the power of programming that I took a decision on that day “I am going to be a programmer”. After two years of learning all the programming basics, I started to work on Upwork (previously oDesk).
Because of the expertise and quality of my work soon I became one of the top freelancers. Later I joined Freelancer.com and Peopleperhour.com and soon started to get lots of work that I can’t even handle. Those days were very exciting for me.
The sad news is that the good time didn’t last very long. A few days later Upwork suspended my account as I didn’t meet the minimum age requirement to join the site which was 18 years. The same thing happened for the other two freelancing sites as well. I lost the remaining two accounts due to contacting the clients directly (which was actually prohibited). It wasn’t totally my fault. The clients used to ask my personal contact info.
I was so hopeless that I decided not to work online again. I started to search for local jobs. Fortunately, I used to get local jobs very easily. I worked for another 6 years in different local companies where I learned some of the great and amazing things which I couldn’t learn if I worked alone.
Then one day I realized that I should go back online again. Because the amount of experience and ability I have is very rear and I can serve much more people with my knowledge. In 2016 I came back online again. Besides my full-time job, I started to work for different small businesses remotely. This time I didn’t join any freelancing sites but opened my own website.
When I started working online again my main focus was to help the client no matter what I get in return. The other goal was to keep the price affordable keeping the quality best.
And soon things started to change again. I got my golden days back again. Now it’s a common sentence every day I hear from my clients “Tariqul, you are the best!“
