Just like all of us, I used to explore ways through which I can start a similar business however many questions were in my mind e.g. What to sell? Where to sell? How to sell?
One day I saw a post on Facebook regarding a seminar conducted by Extreme Commerce and the topic was about BUILDING AMAZON BUSINESS FROM PAKISTAN. I got registered for the seminar in Islamabad 2018 and possibly made one of the best decisions as this seminar proved to be the turning point of my life. By the end of the day I had answers to my questions: What to sell? Where to sell? How to sell? Without wasting time, I enrolled in the Boot Camp offered by Extreme Commerce. The boot camp actually helped me to learn the Ecommerce Business skills in depth and fast track my Amazon Business Launch as I had extremely helpful people around me.
I admire the vision of Sir Sunny Ali and the efforts by Team Extreme Commerce as they have come up with such a wonderful and resourceful platform for Pakistan. Between me and success I had two major issues; AMAZON ID & FINANCE! Through the Amazon FBA Pakistan Facebook group, I was able to find a partner who not only came up with the AMAZON ID but also supported me financially. Yes, that is TRUE! I hardly had chipped 30% capital but my partner invested more in the tough times. And yes, that 30% investment I did was not easy to arrange. I had to redeem some National Saving Certificates.
Since the product launch, the journey has been like sea tides, sometimes high and sometimes low. But there have been numerous learning outcomes. Within 4 months of product launch, we were selling around $28k a month with 30% margin. Although we ended up selling the product due to Patent issues, by that time we had made handsome money to launch 2-3 products easily. I would like to Thank Extreme Commerce for making all this possible with their continuous support.
I have always desired to be an entrepreneur for as long as I can remember, I wasn’t happy with a typical 9 to 5 job; working for a boss.
By profession, I have been working as an IT Infrastructure Project Manager in KSA. But on the contrary, I always had a business aptitude and mindset.
Fields like Amazon and eBay have always seemed like great platforms to start with and through Amazon is a globally recognized platform.
I came to know about the Extreme Commerce Facebook group a year ago. I had initial doubts about the group but with time Amazon & ecommerce seemed doable.
Let’s start with my Intro. I'm Danish Jabbar. I am 26-year-old and have completed my degree in ACCA. Not to hide that I’ve failed in two startups already.
From 2010 to 2018, I worked in oil and gas projects throughout Asia and Middle East, as well as Papua New Guinea
Who does not like having a business? Business that is overseas. Business that generates Dollar, Pounds, Euros etc.
A year ago I didn't have any interest in ecommerce until my friends asked me to check out this guy trending on Facebook, informing Pakistanis about Amazon.
I am 22 years old. Back in Dec 2018, when I came to know about Extreme Commerce, I instantly registered for 1-1 Coaching program.
