Recently, I’ve been working on a huge project being managed by one of Nigeria’s top branding companies that will redefine the way we search information about Nigeria online.
The project’s mission is to “organize Nigeria’s information” in one place and has the vision “to become Nigeria’s #1 search and information portal”. Simply put, information about Nigeria will soon become easy to find; easy to use; easy to share.
With localized business information search functionality, the new portal set to launch in January 2010 will become to Nigeria what Yahoo! is to America, providing high value content on various categories: Business, Technology, Finance, News, Careers, Advertising, Autos, Real Estate, Shopping, Travel and Tourism, Entertainment, Fashion, Sports and lots more.
I’ll be providing more details soon…
What is Version 2.8?
In line with this new direction, I’ve decided to soft launch Version 2.8 of this blog today, which has been designed to review companies and their brand marketing + advertising campaigns seen on traditional media and digital media as well as their use/misuse of social media tools and technologies.
I think that as more and more companies are struggling to build their brand awareness through various mediums, there should be relevant feedback on their advertising campaigns and marketing efforts in order to ascertain how successful and/or effective they are. Most importantly now that customers are beginning to dictate how companies conduct their businesses and expect their views and opinions to be heard by the company.
Hopefully, this new direction could get company execs in Nigeria to start listening to their customers; create a great user-experience through their unique products; develop creative marketing campaigns and thus build an influential brand.
