Ahoy Matey! I’m Priya Florence Shah. I’ve been a journalist and writer since 1996, an online publisher since 2001, and a blogger since 2003.
Around 2001, I published my first website, Making India Green, which was featured in Digit Magazine. Since then, I’ve worked on creating award-winning websites, newsletters, blogs, email courses and ebooks.
In 2014, I founded my social media agency so I could use the power of blogs and social media to help my clients engage better with their customers online.
Along the way, I acquired Diplomas in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, a Certificate in Digital Marketing from Columbia Business School, as well as Social Media Certification (CSMMP™) from Digital Vidya, and Certificates in Travel Writing and Travel Journaling.
Over the years, my content-based approach to marketing has created millions of page views and thousands of leads for my clients and my own businesses. I’ve also had the good fortune to be listed among the top Social Media Experts to follow and the top 25 Digital Marketing Experts in India.
Since 2006, I have been publishing my online magazine for women in India, Naaree.com, ranked as one of the top 100 women’s blogs in the world, where I also promote solo travel for women.
On my travel blog, AhoyMatey.blog, I write about family travel with a focus on responsible and sustainable tourism.
I reach a combined audience of 287,090 and growing through all my social channels. My blogs get a total of 68,000+ page views/month. My audience is largely young Indian men and women, from 18 to 44+ years. Not convinced that you need to target Indian families? Read the article here.
