Hi! Thanks for having me. I run a digital marketing and design agency @azammarketing which helps businesses get more customers. #MIVReveals
@azammarketing What inspired you to start up your business? #MIVReveals
I was working as a print journalist and predicted the net would dominate the landscape in the future. So I started Azam in 1997. #MIVReveals
@azammarketing What makes your business unique and differentiates you from your competitors? #MIVReveals
As the oldest established digital agency in the UK our unparalleled expertise means we are much more likely to hit the bullseye! #MIVReveals
@azammarketing What has been your biggest challenge as a business owner and how have you met that challenge? #MIVReveals
There have been numerous challenges from lack of start-up finance to recruiting technical staff but persistence has paid off. #MIVReveals
@azammarketing What would you say is your proudest #business moment so far? #MIVReveals
My biggest delight is when our clients regularly tell me they are thrilled with the results we've produced for their businesses. #MIVReveals
@azammarketing How many hours a day do you work on average? #MIVReveals
It averages at about 14 hours a day, 7 days a week. Estée Lauder said "I never dreamed about success. I worked for it." #MIVReveals
@azammarketing What does success look like to you? #MIVReveals
In a service-sector business, client satisfaction is my number one goal. My staff get tired of me saying "The Customer is King!" #MIVReveals
@azammarketing How has your business evolved since its launch in 1997? MIVReveals
The reason we still prosper after 19 years is because I obsessively study industry trends and stay 12 steps ahead of others. #MIVReveals
@azammarketing Where do you envision your company in 5 or 10 years? #MIVReveals
We have got massive plans! For instance, I intend to use my journalism background to launch an innovative digital publishing arm #MIVReveals
