Becoming an entrepreneur, starting your own business, and successfully selling your product can be extremely challenging. Some know exactly what to do and how to grow their business. However, some need an expert’s advice in order to reach their business goals. These individuals know how to lead entrepreneurs to the top. We show you how the last ten years made Zeky Ahmed an expert audience builder for entrepreneurs to sell their products.
Zeky Ahmed’s goal is to help entrepreneurs grow their audiences in order to expand their digital businesses and sell their products or services. He developed a “Cult Builder’s Formula” method based on his professional experience growing his business to six figures through a highly-engaged Facebook group and email audience. “The only real way to have a profitable business is by building your cult-like audience that is so passionate about your brand, that even if you disappeared off one platform tomorrow,” says Ahmed, “they will follow you to wherever else they can go to consume and buy your product. That is how I built my business, and that is what I focus on helping my clients do.”
A decade’s worth of experience
Between 2011 and 2013, Ahmed found himself studying Political Science, falling in love with the idea of entrepreneurship, and coming up with ideas to start his own business. He was working for a company called ACN. Although that was not his passion or dream job, he used this experience to learn more about owning his business.
The idea of becoming an entrepreneur was highly attractive, so he took a step back from university and began working in sales to improve his skills and gain experience. “Over the next few years, I continued working sales jobs (everything from call center work to door-to-door) while trying to build different businesses on the side too.” At that point in his life, the business-building part of his career was mostly spent on personal development.
By the middle of the decade, Ahmed took several courses to learn and perfect his skills. He learned about dropshipping from AliExpress and Shopify. He decided to start his e-commerce business selling products sourced from China. “I ended up getting forced into shutting down the business when I eventually ran out of the cash I needed to keep running ads and sourcing products. It felt like everything was over for me at this point.” However, he did not give up, which led to his success.
Towards the decade’s end, he decided to jump from e-commerce to affiliate marketing. He began using organic advertisements and growing his Facebook group. “Within that following month, I managed to make my first $1,000 in affiliate commissions. That was a game-changing experience because it finally instilled the belief in me that I could make a living online, and this would work if I just put my head down and committed to mastering the skills.”
By 2019, Ahmed believed in his ability to start his own business, he saw his Facebook work giving results, and decided to quit his job. He decided to focus full-time on affiliate marketing. However, he knew there was more he could do. “That is when I came up with my software CommentFunnels™️ and launched it. We now have around 1,000 weekly active users worldwide.” The following year, he increased his revenue and began sharing his advice and expertise through online courses and coaching with clients who wanted to succeed.
Sometimes it can be terrifying to start your own business and find the path to success. A lot of it is trial-and-error. However, some experts can help you find the key to reaching your goals. Those individuals have learned from personal experience what failure can do to you and how to overcome it. That is how the last ten years made Zeky Ahmed an expert audience builder to help clients grow their business and reach their goals.
