I got the opportunity to take the interview of the Tony John sir today. Below is the full interview of the online legend Tony John.

Me: Hello sir, Can you tell us about your family background
Tony John: I am from an average family from a small village in Kerala. Have 2 sisters and 1 brother. My father passed away while I was a student. I had lot of family responsibilities and many of my career decisions were based on the fact that I have to support my family. I went to USA looking for better chances of making money to support my family.

After achieving my financial goals and living in USA forabout 12 years, now I am back to India and lead a happy life with my wife and 3 kids. "happy and relaxed life"

Me: What is your educational qualification
Tony John:I did B.Sc in Physics, then completed B.Ed with the intention of becoming a teacher. In fact, teaching is the favorite profession in our family. However, I realized B.Ed cannot meet my financial goals. So decided to go for Masters in Computer Applications, which has more challenging career opportunities.

Me: How you got an idea to develop a website like IndiaStudyChannel ?
Tony John:I was living in a company guest house in USA along with 10 or so other guys who came from India looking for job. I was the only one in that big group who had a job in hand. Almost everyone in house spent most of their time watching movies and other TV shows. After work, I also joined them most of the time. However, my financial needs to support my family back in India kept saying I need to do something more rather than just watching TV during the free time. One day I noticed a friend living in another guest developing a small personal website using the free webhosting service offered by Brinkster. I was very curious even though I had no clue about hosting websites. He was kind enough to explain and help me to get started.

It was a humble beginning from there. After starting my personal website www.TonyJohn.com, I started few more websites with Matrimonials, classifieds etc. Those websites were a way for me to use my time productively instead of watching TV. I was not making any money at that time and even in my wildest dreads I thought I could make any money from websites.

Eventually I started adding more websites to the network with no revenue but to keep myself occupied.

At some point of time later, Google launched AdSense program and I started using it just out of curiosity to learn what it is. At that time, I did not know it is going to change my life and it would help me return to India and lead a better life here. On the next day morning, I was shocked to see the dollars in my AdSense account and I really could not believe if it was real money.

Eventually I learned internet is a money tree and I nurtured my tree very well.

IndiaStudyChannel.com was started as an educational project for my brother and I hosted it on the internet to keep him motivated and encouraged. Today ISC is the biggest educational website in India.

Me: What you did 12 years in USA?
Tony John:I worked as a software engineer in few companies including BroadVision, BankOfAmerica, Home Depot, Hewlett Packard, Omnicell and I was developing websites during my free time. When I returned to India, I had about 40 websites in my network After coming back to India, I became a full time blogger and have started about 50 more websites.

Me: Sir, What was your first  website and when you launched that?
Tony John: www.tonyjohn.com in year 2000.

Me: Tell us something about your meeting with USA president as we got this news from ISC forum earlier.
Tony John: I did not meet US president. The post in IndiaStudyChannel was a picture taken in the WAX museum in USA.

Me: What is the secret behind the popularity of the ISC?
Tony John: t is the bonding between the webmaster, editors and members which make everybody feel at home in ISC. A lot of members and admin know each other, we spend a lot of time patiently answering all member queries and help beginners get up to speed in monetizing the online opportunities

Me: Can you tell us about the revenue generated by ISC per month?
Tony John: We do make pretty good money after giving away 90% AdSense revenue share and hundrds of other rewards to our members. Most of the other websites are giving up to 50% revenue share and they even stop it once the site reaches some good traffic. We have been giving 90% AdSense share from the content to the authors and plan to continue that. In addition, we give a lot of cash rewards for each post and have lot of competitions including Group Discussion, Spot a Change, Member of the Month, Forum Wizard etc.
