Abed Shatila - Digital Consultant in Dubai
Web Developer, Designer, and a Digital Consultant. I help you boost your online presence and get better conversions.
Hi, I’m Abed, a regular guy from Lebanon who codes for a living. I’ve been doing that since 2013, just before I started college, and this is because I enjoy it really.
How it started
My job there changed from time to time. Initially started off as a WordPress developer, then worked closely to make sure that other developers delivered projects with the necessary standards and quality while still working on automation that allowed the company to move forward.
The in between
Now let’s jump to my ThemeForest / Template Monster journey where I quit SlideSigma and decided to make themes and templates for those two marketplaces on my own. I built my own two profiles, had to pick up new skills just to catch up with the market, and just like that, two years later I have two accounts with over 60k USD in sales as a sole individual doing everything from A to Z. I’m talking design, development, taking care of support and much more than meets the eye. 😮😮
How it’s going
In, 2019, my lovely country was at another level of low, and working as a freelancer here proved to be a bit of a difficult ordeal, so I decided to head over to Dubai where I worked for NeverStop Media as the head of development. At NSM, I acquired a lot of skills including SEO, SEM, and basically a 360-degree understanding of Digital Marketing, all that while managing my own team of developers and working closely with all the departments to make sure that client requirements are met.
Given that NSM is a Digital Agency, we followed Agile principles to keep up with the neverending changes of clients, and this is in fact what I am good at. 💪
I would say that I’m a good Project Manager, but the only skill that I would love to learn is to sell. I can pitch clients, talk to clients, make sure they are satisfied with the products, and deliver their requirements to the necessary members of the projects, however, when it comes to selling clients, this is where I want to make myself better.
That, and improving my Machine Learning and AI skills to further keep up with the ever-changing market requirements. Anyway, that’s everything you should know about me, now, how about reaching out 😁
