About Next Thinkerz

Next Thinkerz is an online publication that strives to keep you informed about gadgets, apps, and other nuances of the tech world. All of the posts on this blog have been simplified and streamlined to make it more appealing to all visitors.

Pratik's journey began in the year 2014, when he was enjoying his summer break after completing his second year at college. Practically speaking, he wanted to learn how to code, so that he could compete with his peers - or is it that he wanted to follow the crowd? An acquaintance of his suggested he check out Code Academy, a website that provides information about coding. During that time, he became familiar with the HTML language. As it turns out, one lucky day he stumbled upon blogger.com while completing his course. He began thinking of a name, and he chose Nextthinkerzz. That is not a typographical error. Thus it began, as Blogger.com was a HTML/CSS-based website, so it gave him a free platform to test and experiment on. His knack for technology led him to explore more in the writing section later on. At first, he wrote about gadgets, sometimes copying others. Then one of his peers expressed a lot of hatred towards him because of it, and that hit him hard. It was then that Pratik realized his mistake and realized that the platform would provide him with access to a world he never knew and its endless possibilities. He soon realized that one could generate income through this platform, which got him all excited. Although he admits that he never made much money off the Adsense platform back in the day, he still enjoyed writing. His thoughts were easily shared with others by clicking a small publish button.  

Soon Pratik took things seriously and booked a domain on 12th August 2015 from his colleague's credit card as he was afraid that his parents wouldn't allow him. Luckily, his blog was sponsored during that time frame, and Pratik was able to reimburse his colleague. The idea that someone would pay him to promote products on his blog fascinated him. So there you have it in a nutshell: Pratik built his brand - Next Thinkerz - and now he is stepping into the digital age of social media.

As a result of continuous efforts, Next Thinkerz has met the recognition from numerous reputed brands in the country. He won the title "Best Technology and Internet Blog in India" on September 20, 2015 at the Win 15 BlogAdda Awards held at the JW Marriott Sahar hotel in Mumbai. This is one of Pratik's greatest achievements, enabling him to form partnerships with several renowned brands without whom he would not exist. This is something he is not afraid to say publicly.
