A bit of history
Echo Freelance was established in 2008 by then teenage freelancer Adeel Ather.
Adeel started out designing websites and brands for friends and family. When he realized he had a knack for it, he decided to make it to his career. He took it upon himself to learn other skills, such as 3-D Studio Max, Adobe After Effects, and other animation and video graphics. This provided him with an alternative source of income. After two years of being engrossed in 3-D graphics, Adeel decided to focus more on web designing, and hence launched Echo Freelance. Traction belt, and soon enough he brought two members onto his team.
"It came down to one particularly bad week when I only had $250 of credit on my credit card. I decided to use it on paid backlinks to help push up search engine rankings of EchoFreelance.com. I was able to buy a dozen paid links over a period of a few weeks, but this didn't translate into better rankings or more business. One night at 2am, tipping it down, I was on the phone, soaked to the bone, to one of my team members moaning that I wasn’t going to continue working as a freelancer anymore!"
Not long after that incident, Adeel sold some assets, such as his car, hired three freelancers, was able to make his rent payment, and even pay himself.
A friend of Adeel joined the team at Echo Freelance, and willingly took on the lead role of SEO administrator. Grateful for her contribution, Adeel welcomed her and now, four years later, Echo Freelance is at the top of their game with web design and marketing, ranking as one of the lead teams of freelancers worldwide.
What people sayI am known for not only being highly motivated, but for being driven in delivering quality work to my clients.
"Adeel designed and programmed our website redbrickpm.co.uk and conducted a massive SEO campaign that included relevant keywords to our industry. In the past year we have seen a very impressive increase in traffic to our website. Because of this, there has been significant increase in client enquiries, resulting in new business. We got a significant boost in business and his efforts raised our portfolio and presence within the industry overall. We strongly recommend Adeel Ather's website design and also his SEO services."
