#202 – An Update on Pakistan from Saqib Azhar, Creator of the World’s Largest Amazon Facebook Group
Amazon continues to expand throughout the world. E-commerce is a global phenomenon, and it seems like every single week we’re reminded of that fact in a different way.
In this episode of the Serious Sellers Podcast, Helium 10’s Director of Training and Chief Brand Evangelist, Bradley Sutton speaks with a global e-commerce superstar, Saqib Azhar.
Saqib Azhar is a CEO & Co-Founder of Enablers, a platform with the goal of creating two million employment opportunities in Pakistan by 2023. Saqib has established the world’s largest Amazon-focused Facebook group and has years of experience in technology, digital marketing, and e-commerce.
After spending 15 years of his life in United Kingdom, he decided to come back to Pakistan to serve the people and help them develop their own e-commerce ecosystem. Saqib has also been selected by United Nations (UNDP) to train the youth of Pakistan under their sponsorship.
Saqib gave himself three years to succeed on Amazon. After a number of failures and through a mixture of determination and business savvy, Saqib exploded onto Amazon’s first page.
He hasn’t looked back since!
