Many of our Pakistani friends struggle with communicating effectively with American clients. In order to overcome this challenge, they need to build connections.
Do you know why Rehan Allahwala, the Founder of Rehan Training, wants all of us to be taking selfies?
It’s because a selfie shows a connection.
For example, I took a selfie with Sunny Ali, the Founder, and CEO of Extreme Commerce, in Karachi.
By posting this selfie on social media, my American friends can see that I have a connection with someone they can trust, and it serves as an intermediary introduction.
Currently, American clients are willing to pay thousands of dollars per month for each individual to do freelance work.
This is the current demand. In order to take advantage of this opportunity, it is crucial for Pakistani individuals to establish connections and for American clients to know who they are.
I was a speaker at Connected Pakistan Conference, where we recorded several videos on my phone to let our American friends know what Pakistani people are all about.
However, these videos are currently only on my phone, and nobody else has seen them, so it gets no traffic.
So we will take these videos and put them on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, and on my blog site.
Additionally, I have one website that is the number one free ebook site on the internet.
I plan to share the content we created in Pakistan on this site and other websites we control that have high traffic in order to create multiple job opportunities for people.
