The world is a global village, a lot has changed since the stone age. Industrialization and Revolution have taken over the world today. We are now in a computer age, almost everything that we do not is on the internet. If you want to buy goods and products, there are online stores like Amazon, Alabamart, Jumia, Konga, Yudala, Payporte, Alixpress etc. For people who like reading about news, entertainment and celebrity gists, there are websites which are there for you to get those contents such as lindaikejiblog, e4unaija.com, 9gist.com, Whatstrending9ja, Sportfocus, Mp3musichype. This means that newspapers, journals, magazines will not be patronized since you can get that news on the web.
As a Business owner, you should not just follow the trend of social media marketing, but also use the social media and the power of the internet as a tool for you to sell your products and make more sales for your business.
Even if you cannot afford the funds and money to set up a website for your business, you shouldn’t hesitate to advertise your business of the social media. The social media is a good platform for you to advertise your business. A good example of the social media is Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg (the owner, founder, and CEO of Facebook gave you a platform which has an astonishing number if more than 2 billion users. What have you been doing with it? Have you capitalized on that advantage to create awareness for your business, goods, products, and services?
You can get a phone as low as N20,000 (Twenty thousand naira) that will get you a phone that will give you access to social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Linkedin, Pinterest, Google Plus, Tumblr, Palmchat, Eskimi etc.
Even though it is not an android phone, a small Nokia phone can download the Opera Mini and Facebook application.
As I said in the initial stages of this article, the world is fastly going digital. If you don’t move along, you will be stuck behind. No matter what type of business and services which you offer, be it selling motor parts, computer, and phone accessories, tiles, fashion designing etc. Getting your business on the internet through a website or a social media platform will place your business before a large section of people. Apart from the data and the internet charges, you are free to do whatsoever you want to do on the internet. If you have genuine goods and if you offer original products, the chances are high that people will recommend their families and friends to patronize you and that will make a good name for your business.
Your business deserves the exposure and awareness which the internet and the social media offers.
