The story started when an engineering student Ashish Sangai attended a seminar of a multi-level marketing company. The seminar was an eye-opener for him, where people in thousands of number were being “motivated” (read fooled). Ashish knew he had to do something about this. But how – was the question! This is when he approached his classmate Alok Trivedi during a boring lecture in the college. Both of them had prior knowledge about Internet services. And, hence was born Flit Webs in August 2012, a web hosting company.
The company started by providing hosting services to college students in Jaipur at reasonable rates. This went on for a while when a friend of Ashish & Alok wanted them to design a website. And, this was when Flit Webs stepped into website development. With a mission to cater all web needs, Flit Webs soon had a handful of clients.
With a boom in social media marketing, the company started social media campaigning with Confess Club as their first client. And since then, there was no look-back. The company has been social media partners for BuyHatke since 1.5 years and organized contests, online and offline campaigns for them.
“Our association with BuyHatke team has been the most learning experience in all aspects. We have trended nation-wide on Twitter with quirky contests like #ReplaceMovieNameWithHatke which trended for 50 hours straight. Going viral with #Mi3Milega has garnered good results for both BuyHatke and us.” says Ashish & Alok.
Both founders were awarded with “Young Entrepreneur” by NEN in 2013. Flit Webs was among the Top 25 Judges Choice Winners at TATA First Dot, powered by NEN in 2014. The duo who started with just Rs. 1500 investment has now different servers ranging from Dedicated Servers to VPS. Flit Webs has a collaborative network of over 500K fans on Facebook. Their noteworthy pages includes 1001 Things to do in Jaipur which is the #1 page for Jaipurites. The company today is a proud sponsor of Fluxus, the IIT Indore fest.
With a customer base of 1K, the company at present has a team of 10 and is soon looking to set up franchisee offices over India.
Flit Webs is currently running a couple of projects under their “We Care” intiative. These includes providing free web hosting for NGO’s and college students. Know more about “We Care”at www.flitwebs.com
“We strive to be the leading web services provider company especially for startups. With entrepreneurship spirit spreading in India, we are looking to help these startups from their inception. We were once a startup too and we know how difficult it is to nurture your company.” says Ashish & Alok.
