Case Study

Hi! Thank you for the opportunity. My name is Sami Abid, founder and Managing Director of AYH Consulting Ltd. I started a service-based business in October, 2020 to help businesses automate their repetitive tasks and streamline their business operations using low-code applications e.g Airtable, Notion, Zoho, HubSpot, Knack, Zapier, Integromat and n8n. I am currently earning an average of $6k/month via retainer contracts and hunting for new business every month.

Initially this was a side-hustle where I helped small businesses in my free time but now I have slowly scaled my business and gone full time to serve small and medium-sized enterprises.
