MA7ALLY.com

Co-Founder / Head of development

MA7ALLY or محلي is a fully functional online store. The idea came about in 2010, when a group of 4 individuals, including myself, decided to run our own e-commerce store and sell imported gadgets. The site has evolved beyond that since. It now enables anyone to create their own store on the site and sell their own products.

My role varied, but I mainly worked on the development and deployment of the beta, 1st and 2nd versions. By the time we reached the 3rd, we had a developer working for us. I also developed the brand and identity (Logo, color scheme, templates, brand manual...etc.). In addition, I handled all online advertising and campaigns.

BPCom BTL Production Services

Co-Founder / Operation Manager

During my time at Blueprint, i created a sub-agency aimed at providing printing and production services to clients who wish only to receive such service. Since Blueprint was a specialised agency and only works with Real Estate clients, we managed to secure a large number of non-real estate based clients and serve them.

My role included locking deals, managing the relationship with clients, issuing estimates/invoices, and prepping annual plans. The sub-agency later on became a standalone agency.
