I started working as an independent website designer. The term Freelancer wasn’t popular back then. After completing my Masters in Computer Science in 2001, started hunting for jobs in the local market.
After failing to hunt for a job in my field, I was asked by my family to start working in an office of a relative so I learn to work in the office environment after a couple of arguments with my parents (since no one in the family has ever done a business before).
I joined a brokerage firm on an internship without salary where they started my salary on the 6th month.
Fast forward. Resigned after 2.5 years at the position of Branch Manager.
Alhamdulilah, I got married to a fashion graduate in 2010. She was already making handmade handbags and selling those in various exhibitions held at the college and university levels in Islamabad. Since I live in Lahore, she had to make a new audience for her creativity.
We made our presence online by the name of @Fatymah (on my wife’s name). Launched our collection, made advertising material for print media, explored the way how boosting works on Facebook by learning from YouTube.
This wasn’t just the launch of my online business but I was preparing to launch myself as Social Media Marketing Manager. Except for making the product, I did each process in growing this business myself in growing it.
I spent real money on learning to boost my wife’s online business since there were not many experts at that time in the local industry to whom I could ask.
This was started with a little investment of PKR 35000 only in 2010 which included production, marketing material, photoshoot, and boosting the budget for the first time.
There were few Google Adwords experts in the market but not many Facebook Gurus. I had to face that Facebook ads can’t do anything for any business, you need to go for Google Ads to increase your business.
was the 3rd person who opted to work in Ashraf Chaudhry’s team as a business partner in 2012 and left in mid-2017 when we were a team of more than 35 persons working remotely from the comfort of houses with monthly revenue increased to 7 figures (in rupees). Revenue-wise.
I was performing as the best team player for several months just before we parted ways.
This resulted in giving me the popularity I was craving to become known as Umair J. Qureshi
