HyperProspect – The Idea
Neeraj Negi was working on his own projects and he was working on a tool that would help to automate the sales process. The idea of HyperProspect came to his mind when he was working on his own project. He was working on this project for a year. The main aim of HyperProspect is to help companies to grow their business while getting high-quality leads in automation using Linkedin. The company has already generated over $60,000 in revenue in less than a year.
Neeraj’s company HyperProspect helps businesses generate leads through LinkedIn. In the beginning, Neeraj didn’t have a solid business plan. He was simply trying to solve his problem. It works on the concept of automation of sales and helps companies to grow their business by providing them with a proven framework using Linkedin.
Neeraj said, “There are too many companies out there who are looking to grow their business but they don’t know how to go about it. HyperProspect helps them to do so”.
Neeraj’s success stems from his expertise in lead generation and his interest in marketing. While growing up, he was able to gain a lot of experience in this field and that helped him today to become the person he is today.
“I have always liked marketing. That’s why I started out as a freelancer for a Netherlands-based company. I learned a lot of things out there on my own and then I started experimenting with various websites and social media. I then made a web app and got a lot of experience being a part of various web-based startups. This helped me to have a better understanding of the market and what my customers are looking for.”
Neeraj Negi believes that success comes by itself and it is all about being a marketer. Always try to be different and unique than other companies which will help you to stand out amongst your competitors.
Neeraj Negi says, “Marketing gives you the power to do things. It helps you to reach the consumer. You have to find a way to give value to the customer and then you will have your customers.”
As an entrepreneur, I think you should try to start a business that is somewhere connected to the field that you are already in. It is easier to relate to things. If you are working on a project that is quite far from your expertise then it will be quite difficult to work on that project. You will have to learn a lot of new things to be able to succeed in that field. So, if you want to start your own business then always try to start that business in the field that you are already comfortable in.
While starting a business, you need to understand the market and your audience. You need to have a lot of patience. It is not an easy task and you will have to work really hard to get the results you want. It is all about giving value to the customer. If you give value to the customer then you will be able to succeed.
Neeraj Negi says, “I don’t believe in hard work. I believe in smart work.” And that is what you have to do while starting a business. You need to work smart by understanding the market and your audience.
