We are an ongoing client of Javed for several years – requiring regular organic marketing, ongoing quality content creation and combined with on-page & off-page SEO. In addition, Javed and his team also generate leads (both paid and organic) for our two pay to post content websites. Javed helps generate hundreds of paid clients to guest post on these platforms.
We wanted to launch a new offering for SMEs recently with the target to understand its demand and the product-market fit. Javed suggested avoiding surveys and focus groups – and developing a strategy around the offering itself with an MVP to test the market so we can collect real-life feedback. Javed and his team undertook the market analysis for us, developing a strategy to run paid ads combined with organic (email marketing and LinkedIn campaigns) to reach the end-user. We got the results at the end in a detailed report and Javed has then supported us in refining the offering.
Javed Khattak helped create the brand strategy and identified the target audience. A new product launch amidst the pandemic is really challenging, but Javed and his team ensured that we utilise the limited budget effectively. We started generating sales qualified leads within the first week of launching the campaign. Great work – 10 on 10!
Javed is an outstanding person with a lot of insight and perspective. He helped us create the business plan, 5 years financial projection and the product strategy. The 5 year financial forecast really gave us insight into planning the budget spending. We were also able to identify the key business metrics to focus on in the first 6-12 months.
Javed proved that his vast financial and startups experience is invaluable and we recommend every startup founder to discuss the strategy and financial plan with him!

He is incredibly intelligent and truly passionate about delivering a business that provides genuine value for its customers.
