About

Hello fella’s, I’m glad you want to know more about me and my work. if this is your first time on Murtaza Amin Dot Com, I recommend you to go through this page properly to know more about me.

I (as you all know) am Murtaza Amin, I run a moderately successful web-based business helping B2B companies clean their CRM / data/lists.

I live in Burhanpur, MP, India (moved back from the US in 2016) to bootstrap my business in a tier three city in India.

I travel a lot, I have been to 7 countries and plan to visit 12 in 2017.

What do I do?

I’m an entrepreneur, I help companies improve Sales and get more leads for their business through CRM Cleaning and Big Data Mining.

I don’t talk the walk, I walk the talk, so, here you go.

  1. I generated over 300k $ in 2015 for myself and my company last year from the company I started in my parent’s garage single-handedly with zero capital.
  2. I generated over 3 Million $ in sales last year alone for a major Insurance Company (Gary Blackmon Insurance Agency) / SaaS-based Social Media monitoring company (Synthesio) / a major bank in the US (CBC National Bank) combined.
  3. I have earned over quarter million views on the website I founded in 2012 MBA KaKeeda before selling it out to work on my new passion Prospex Network (BizProspex.com) and move to the states eventually.
  4. I have helped over 250 companies in the past two years to fill up their CRM’s with fresh / updated and active leads.
  5. I’m currently ranked as the top 3 Marketing Professionals on UpWork.
  6. And there is Murtaza Amin dot com too.

UpWork as you all know changed it’s pricing from 10% to 22.75% on May 4th, millions of freelancers and clients were shocked with this move, I thought to do something about it, I started a small movement that was joined by over ~230k people all over the world and was featured on Forbes / PoliticalAmerican / ViralNews and another dozen online and offline publications.

Read more about it here.

Read about how I got ~230k people to join in and eventually Forbes writing about it here.

When I was in college, I found a way to get LinkedIn premium for free (I shared the trick with the LinkedIn team and got the due media recognition globally), read more about it here: http://bit.ly/lnkdhack

I found a bug in Google Forms on May 29th and have shared it with the Google Forms team and waiting for their reply on the same, will share more details once I hear back from them on this.

Update on the Google forms bug, it wasn’t a bug, it was a system issue that was resolved later. (I love Google, it is perfect).

Goals in life.

My Hobbies?

I love playing chess / enjoy reading (I’m not one of those avid readers though) / and yes, a traveller ( I don’t take photos of the places I visit because I believe in creating experiences and memories that will live and die with me)

What keeps me busy these days?

I’m currently busy writing a book on how to handle end to end Email Marketing for Small Businesses.

My Guiding Principles

  1. The things that are going to happen in life, are going to happen in life. Make the best of all your resources to achieve what you always wanted to.
  2. I have never worked for money in my life, I have worked and money came in eventually.
  3. Whether succeed or fail, I always wanted to do something that interests me and the internet has changed my life, the internet has given me wings to fly/travel and live the life I could have only dreamt of.
  4. You are the average of 5 people you most hang out with, make sure you make friends/mentors wisely.
  5. Always be open to learning.

Thank you for visiting.
