I was supposed to be travelling to a wonderful destination by this time, but it was destined that I spend time on InI to make move forward smoothly in the era of mobile device. I dont know how big it is for an individual but for InI, facebook fan page has been really great source of relationship with it readers. I am really thankful to every individual who like InI and stayed with it for years.
As on 10000 likes we announced InI community, on 15000 we reinstated the community, on 20000 we are moving to mobile device with responsive design. You can check how it looks on your mobile device : )
I have been a bit crazy and excited about InI and its future. Talked to too many people and shared my ideas about it. I saw from people denying the whole idea to a point they are so ready to invest into its growth. From ads revenue to no income, from a small shared web service to a dedicated server. InI is seeing a drastic change in its future and growth is enormous.
Few things we see in life happens, and we are mostly sure about them, though it’s so early to predict. InI’s growth was and is so certain for me that once ambitiously in a birthday party I said to my friends that InI would reach every single engineer in India, knowingly or unknowingly in just couple of years. Everyone laughed, I did too, one friend also told heights of optimism, while site is down for three days because of some issues at host. That was the time when InI was with a cheap shared host.
InI lost its only revenue stream in May 2010, then most thought I would stop. But the reality is, money was not in mind since day one. I cleaned the site made new design and focused on great helping content. I moved to better web services and things changed a lot, now InI handles millions of page views in a month.
Where InI is going in future.
This morning on a coffee a friend said, its going big and you are not sharing it with me. He was really teasing me, last 10 years or more we are together. Worked in same research lab, worked in same division of the company until last year I moved to a new division to explore the world of parallel computing. He know every single thing happened to InI and was happening, he became too optimistic about it as I am. Every single guy I know in office ask me about it these days and almost everyone is optimistic about its future.
Just to share with you all, InI is going to expand drastically in couple of years. We are aiming a million page views in a day (for now you just have to trust me). Dont worry we will give a great check on quality authenticity and usefulness of content as ever. We will expand specially in the areas of Engineering admissions, PhD how tos, touch areas of study abroad and completely awesome video channel, covering toppers interviews, education news and motivation for higher studies. We also plan for online test platforms and other services, that I will be sharing with you time to time. The best thing is InI is still not looking for investors : )
Today I am too tired to make a video, I will make one sure in coming days covering all in a single span. Probably I will make one by next week n I hope you will enjoy it.
With this I would like to ask you to be with InI, support it, and correct me and my team (we plan to have soon) whenever we go wrong. InI stood for its content and great information to student community. Help InI to grow faster and better.
Thanks again to all of you who are with InI despite of our weaknesses. Thanks again and I (Zahid) wish all of you a great luck ahead.
