Does your business runs itself
We live in a technologically advancing society. Traditions has been laid as the foundations of our lifestyles. If you are still meeting challenges in business you need to learn and practise. In today's world our businesses runs 24/7 and covers the whole world. As a business person why are you not there? Why your businesses still have operation hours? Why are you still closing? Technology runs on itself, you just monitor there and there. As someone who is running a business I would like to advice my fellow business people to take advantage of technology and run with it. In passing last week I heard that #Vodacom and Alipay are in plan to come up with a "super app" then I asked myself, "super app - what difference will it do or offer?" you can check their story at https://www.reuters.com/article/us-vodacom-grp-alipay-safrica/vodacom-partners-with-chinas-alipay-to-create-super-app-in-south-africa-idUSKCN24L1LY

Since we are in business, which Apps works for you? Are you using them to their full potentials? Are you getting enough business from your activities? Just bear in mind that, in order to stay ahead you need information. Information is received from people's daily activities. Now, where will you get people's activities? Our platform(Opera News) is active with people. You get news as they happens and from that you can grab and channel your business accordingly.
From your phone you can run lots of businesses. In your phone contacts you have buyers for your products and services. To start with, why you have contacts in your phone if you don't put them to good use? You can reach huge number of buyers if you are consistent and active on social media. Social media is free for all and free to use - why don't you advertise your business on such platforms? And if you are already there, are you consistent and getting business? Still on social media - you need to know how things operate because in true sense you are communicating with an apps and/or platforms. The challenge will be how to get reactions from your follows and contacts. How will you get them to buy your products and/or service? Stressless we will get there. I only want you to comment with your issues and challenges so that they can be overcomed.
Businesses need to be opened 24/7, as much as we have physical shopping malls we need to have online shopping malls. Because now you can buy in the comfort of your home by the click or swipe. What is preventing you from having your online business? The only thing that is needed from you is a once off effort now and then, once you know what you are doing your business will run automatically. The other thing which you need to know is to keep your profile active. Keep writing and submitting articles right here, money will flow to your bank account.
Sometimes back I did wrote about some business that you can start for free. Today if you have a smart phone you are sorted. You only need data and good internet connection to run your show. Competition is dead, competition is the thing of the past. What I'm trying to say is that, your brother won't buy toilet paper from another seller if you are selling it.
Am very happy to see you this far, keep reading and commenting. We are in this together.
