Last year, about $380 Billion was spent on online advertising by brands all over the world. Up to $150 Billion of that money did not generate the desired result for the brands that paid for them. That’s a lot of money spent without returns.
To put it into perspective, Nigeria’s 2020 budget was $35 Billion. So people wasted up to 4 years’ worth of Nigeria’s budget on ineffective advertising in 2020 alone.
If nothing changes, by 2024, $240 Billion will be wasted on advertising, without getting results. Money gone like that, pooooof!
Have you ever walked into a boutique or a supermarket like Shoprite or Walmart to bargain the price of a product? No!
Because they look organized and very well packaged that you automatically believe that whatever they’re selling is worth the price.
You also tend to trust them more, because they have a brand to protect. They don’t look random. They look standard.
That’s exactly what your brand will look like to your customers when you have a proper e-Commerce website, instead of just doing business with DMs. You look more packaged and more trustworthy.

“Everybody, bring out your laptops”, I said. A few people reached for their bags and brought out their laptops, whilst the bulk of the people stared at me as if they hadn’t heard what I had said. Of course, I had expected this to happen. This wasn’t my first or second or third seminar for small businesses, so I knew what the outcome of that statement would be.
“ Me I don’t have a laptop o. I saw on the registration link that we should come with laptops, but I couldn’t find anybody to…

When my Co-founder, Anu, did a small Whatsapp lecture on a group packed with small businesses, we definitely weren’t expecting much. We had just built out the mobile app for Storemia and we still were trying to fix a thing or two with it. What Anu did right, in hindsight, was sharing about Storemia and leaving a few links for the businesses to try us out.
Up to a hundred businesses registered on Storemia in the 72 hours after that Whatsapp lecture. Then some more businesses registered in the coming days from God…
One of the first challenges a new business faces, before any other, is its naming. It’s the rite of passage of every business. Every baby has their naming ceremony and what that baby will be called for the rest of their lives is determined that day.
But it becomes even a bigger challenge if you are a tech startup. First, you have to come up with the name, then you have to check that the .com or .co version of the domain is available, or at least the .ng or .africa as the case may be for your product.
