WHAT NIGERIAN BUSINESSES AND SERVICES ARE MISSING
The internet has been a power tool and has played a significant role over years in transforming people, businesses, and services. The social media, for example, has made communication easy in various ways, nevertheless, it has also aided businesses and services to global recognition. Yeah, now you know where I am heading.
So you want to know what your business and services are missing? Well, before I tell, I would like you to ruminate about the word “CONSISTENCY”, does it ring a bell? It should if you belong to the team “expanding my business”. Now imagine that you wake up in the morning and try to login to your Gmail account, google wasn’t available, and wouldn’t be until noon and you need to send a very important email. If you are thinking like me, you would look for another email provider that will allow you to send your important email.
Now you have an alternative while Gmail in the other hand has a competitor, that is exactly what will happen when your business is not available to a customer at a given time. Unfortunately, I would not talk about consistency in your business and services, rather a consistency in what will bring prospective clients to your targeted list.
Missing the Internet
Do you know that Amazon.com has vendors in almost every city in the USA and UK? But over 85% of their customers patronizes them via the internet. Customers spend more time online because it is easier to locate items through web search function, it is convenient (no rush), and they can choose to pay upon delivery. Taking your business and services to the internet doesn’t only globalized you, it breaches the limit of services you can offer your clients and keeps your clients close to you.
You must apply the consistency theory when taking your businesses and services to the internet. Over 7 million Nigerians use social media every day, yeah! So you need to make over 7 million Nigeria know about you, and you’re are going to remind them about your business and service every day.
