Becoming a true entrepreneur requires creativity and leveraging resources to your advantage. COVID has shown that those in the market with a strong social media presence have a more versatile business model. With over 3 billion people in the world using social media and 80% of Instagram users following at least 1 business, having a credible brand online has never been more important. From building your reach to getting more sales, social media can do a lot to build your brand’s presence on the web. And it’s the exact method Omar has used to help thousands succeed online as well as building a million-dollar agency in less than a year.
Starting As An Entrepreneur
Omar Choudhury, aka OmarConnects, a 21-year-old entrepreneur began his journey with nothing. As a child, Omar grew up in a low-income household, despite his Mother being well-educated. He realized that the formal education route did not dictate you a successful life, rather learning high-income skills would. He saved up from his 9-5 job and borrowed money through his student loan to invest in his first online courses. Despite learning some good knowledge within the programs he was in, Omar realized that without a solid brand, no one in the market would want to hire him.
Omar sought the best people within the market to help him build his brand. This is where he met his current business partners Dre and Arthur who helped Omar establish his name on Instagram by growing his credibility. A few days later Omar went on to sign a 6-figure deal helping a marketing coach take their sales to new heights. Omar began to scale up his agency after his clients started to see crazy numbers within their business; at one point Omar helped a coach see a 1200% increase in revenue just 2 months into working with them, which is where he began to attain the nickname “The Prince of Closing Deals”. Omar’s main strategy for these clients was building out their social media platforms and helping them with their client acquisition funnels and offers.
Grow With Us Agency
Despite taking his client’s agencies past 6-figures, Omar realized that their success, as well as his own all, stemmed from having that initial credibility online. This is where he sat down with Dre and Arthur and together they planned out how to build Grow With Us Agency. Fast forward a few months later Omar has built out one of the highest performing teams on the platform, the business has made over 1 million dollars and has a huge portfolio of high net worth clients.
Omar took the risk to drop out of University only 10 weeks into starting his entrepreneurship journey as he did not want to follow the footsteps of his parents. Despite it being a huge risk Omar tells us as he knew once you make money, you never forget it. He also did not want to live life with regret and advises young people to also take risks whilst they have low amounts of responsibility, as the worst thing that can happen is you learn and you can always go back to your normal life.
Omar explains that most markets are concentrated, with everyone offering the same thing. The only 2 things that make you stand out are how big your brand online is and your business values. Hence why it is important to build out your social media brands working with experts.
Omar is now helping thousands scale and monetize their own business through social media as well as giving others the opportunity to work alongside him and the rest of the team at Grow With Us Agency. It’s amazing to see what the young entrepreneur has been able to achieve in 2020 alone and we look forward to seeing what the rest of Q4 will mean for Omar and his team.
