Websites Built (including the content)

  1.   A semi-smart website I created for the Global Forum of Communities Discriminated on Work and Descent (GFoD), comprising 17 organisations from across the globe. I edited the content, created the pages and infobase, SEO, links to social media handles, and secured the digital properties.

  2.    This is my company's website that I designed as a model semi-smart website for my development sector clients at a cost of less US$10. Please review it for more on my work.


Social Media Channels I created and/or maintained for my clients

  1. -   I designed and edited all the videos of this channel and made their film. I created the write ups and set keywords for videos for SEO optimization.

  2. - I designed the template and edited all the videos of this channel. I advised the client to convert their webinars into online videos and volunteered to edit and maintain their channel. They received over 20000 views from across the globe, which was huge for an academic institute run by a State government in India.
