‘American Muslim Mom’ Sabra is encouraged to see that individuals and businesses are searching for their own positive Muslim American Leaders by searching online for Muslims they can relate to. Sabra serves as an expert in this trend, and is available for interviews.
Meriden, CT — (SBWIRE) — 03/25/2011 — Representative Peter King’s Muslim Hearings sought to better identify American Muslim leaders and people listened. Americans and businesses went online and searched “American Muslim Mom.” As a result, the web site AmericanMuslimMom.com experienced a marked increase in traffic and inquiries from media and brands.
The American Muslim Mom Blog [http://AmericanMuslimMom.com] nearly doubled its traffic on March 11, 2011, the day after Representative Peter King’s Muslim Hearings. People found the site by searching for the phrase “American Muslim Mom.” The site continues to experience steady growth.
During the ‘high-profile hearing on Muslim radicalization, Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.) asked to better identify Muslim American Leaders’ (Washington Post, referenced below).
Despite the negativity of the Muslim Hearings, Sabra has benefited from the exposure. International brands have reached out to work with the site in an effort to better reach the Muslim audience. For example on March 11th, an internationally-renowned parenting brand contacted Sabra because the one Muslim male employee, a fan of her blog, recommended her.
Sabra was also approached this week to help better educate designers about Eid, because they have experienced a customers demand to create Eid greeting cards. Eid is the Muslim festival or celebration that occurs twice a year. The company reported finding Sabra through an internet search.
Sabra has also worked with Muslim brands to introduce halal products to the mom blogger community. For example, Saffron Road Food [http://www.SaffronRoadFood.com] is the 1st company in America to offer Certified All-Natural, Halal, Gluten-free, Indian frozen entrees. The company shared their testimonial:
“The American Muslim Mom blog reaches a very unique audience that’s important for our brand to engage with online. Our recent contest and giveaway garnered a substantial number of entries and spread viral through the blogosphere. We were very pleased with the outcome and look forward to partnering with American Muslim Blog again and again.”
The attention is an encouraging step in efforts to unify Muslims and non-Muslims.”Americans and businesses are reaching out to Muslims through me and the American Muslim Mom brand. I feel blessed to be a part of an effort to unify Muslims and non-Muslims,” said Sabra.
Sabra is encouraged to see that individuals and businesses are searching for their own positive Muslim American Leaders by searching online for Muslims they can relate to. Sabra serves as an expert in this trend, and is available for interviews.
