Asim Akhtar's journey on his progress with marketing, e-commerce, and making SAAS companies.

19:28 PM

Starting to make store to test a new e-com brand/product

Will probably test ads in 1-2 days.

Did some stuff at other house.

Was gonna do programming but testing products for new e-com store is more important for cashflow.

19:36 PM

Did some painting + programming.

Can't figure out how to get image attachments showing properly for gmail but will figure that out.

18:14 PM

Was cleaning up at other house...

I did spend 1h on Twitter, some of which was mindless browsing – but was helping a guy out with smth and had the tab open on the side.

18:50 PM

Played games for a day to see what it'd be like

As it turns out – as expected – it was stupid.

Would much rather play the game of life instead of living within someone else's construct.

18:28 PM

Trying to figure out how to display attachments in emails and also added lots of words to the gmail filter thing.

Almost figured out the reply button but gotta figure out attachments first.

Once reply + attachments done + nicely designed CSS for the reply box, I'll move onto the other integrations.

18:27 PM

Finished Shoe Dog book.

Lessons in there.

Now on Tycoons book (feels kinda boring but will have to see).

Biographies biographies biographies...

Anyway keeping on with the programming, needa get a Shopify and Facebook/Instagram/etc integration going as soon as possible.

And then the live chat...

Ffs live chat such a pain -

Not only do I have to make it, but I have to make it so others can use it on THEIR Shopify stores

eeeeeeeeeeeeeh oh well I'll figure it out

18:34 PM

Actually tired after hours of programming.

Maybe it's just my eyes.


Anyway making progress with the email dashboard thing, got the emails displaying

Some quirks but I can fix them later

Gotta figure out the Shopify integration thing asap

Maybe I'll make my own API then Shopify APP –> API –> Website

Or maybe I'll just make the http requests directly to Shopify if possible.

Will see.

14:21 PM

Forgot about an open £500 trade. Liquidiation call.


19:05 PM

Cleaning and programming... slowly figuring some stuff out.

Shoe Dog is a damn good book. Almost finished it.

19:07 PM

Programming and cleaning up at new house.

Scaling up a little with ad sets + messing around with budgets to see if I can make more at the same cost.

18:33 PM

I must not be a bad player in my own game.

I know the rules.

I know how to play.
