Dada-Stephen, President of fast growing international network of entrepreneurs, CEOS HUB has again launched another powerful project; VocAfrique.
VocAfrique is an online platform that is meant to connect both Tutors and apprentices of a vocational skill.
On the platform www.vocafrique.com users are expected to search for the vocation of their choice, if not found, tutors can add a vocation to the list with their details.
The apprentice is expected to pick a vocation, register and pay to VocAfrique who releases the money to the tutor after student appraisals.
VocAfrique is expected to reduce unemployment and poverty.
He add this to say…
“If everybody learns a vocation, we will all have a skill that can fetch us money”
For now, we are starting with Nigeria and accepting naira only, but by February 2017 we will accept bitcoins and so then it will go global.

During the launch earlier today,  Mr. Dada encouraged everyone one to be part of this new innovation. He also advised that the youths should acquire vocational skills and hope to be employers of labour instead of depending on the government to provide more jobs.

Let’s do this for a better society.

Let’s Skill Up Africa!

Let’s Create More Jobs!

Let’s Reduce Poverty!

Let’s Reduce Violence!

Are you interested in starting an email marketing company? Do you need a sample email marketing business plan template? If YES, then i advice you read on. According to Wikipedia, researchers estimated that about US$1.51 billion was spent on e- mail marketing campaigns by companies in the United States of America in 2011.

This amount is also expected to grow to about $2.468 billion by 2016. This shows just how much e-mail marketing is gaining relevance in the business world today.

E-mail marketing involves sending out promotional messages to clients/prospective clients through e-mails. Such messages could be advertisements, updates, brand awareness campaigns or requests.

E-mail marketing seeks to build a relationship between a seller and his clients or to preserve an existing relationship and further build trust and loyalty between a seller and his clients.

What are the types of e- mail marketing services?

Direct emails

Direct e-mails are sent to promote a particular product or sales offer. Companies who offer e- mail marketing services gather the e-mail addresses of people they wish to send such messages to by buying prospective leads from companies who offer lead generation services.

Sometimes, an e-mail marketing company may offer both services. Transactional e-mails Transactional e-mails are sent to complete or confirm a transaction initiated by a client with the sending company. For instance, if a prospective client visits your sales website and fills a registration form asking for further details about a particular product, transactional e-mails would then be sent to such a client to further engage the customer and trigger his interest in the products.

E-mail marketing service companies have become relevant over the years as many companies have discovered their effectiveness and how they can help to increase sales compared to other methods of advertisement. Most companies would rather outsource their e-mail marketing services to professionals who possess the necessary skills and expertise to achieve an effective e-mail marketing campaign. It would also allow the company focus on other aspects of the business.

You can begin a career in e-mail marketing by starting your own e-mail marketing company.

Below is a guide to help you get started. Starting an Email Marketing Company – Sample Business Plan Template

1. Write your business plan

The first step in setting your own e-mail marketing company is to draft your business plan. In your business plan, you should be able to identify your target customers and how you will reach them. You should also identify all the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the business.

2. Decide on the services you want to offer

You should also decide on the category of e-mail marketing services you would be offering. E-mail marketing involves several aspects. There are those who specialize in developing good e-mail marketing content that would help to sell products, there are also others who specialize in building e-mail lists and lead generation for their clients. Therefore, you have to decide on the services that you are willing and able to provide to your clients.

3. Observe your competitors

Going into a business like this requires that you carry out a thorough research on the business and those who have been in the business before you. This would help you understand the opportunities and challenges that exist in the e-mail marketing business. You would also be able to devise means of overcoming those challenges when you start your own business.

4. Purchase E-mail Marketing Software

To effectively run your e-mail marketing business, you would need to invest in a very good e-mail marketing software. E-mail marketing software are used to send bulk e-mails, build e-mail lists for your various clients, develop e-mail marketing content and to track the e-mails sent to see how many were opened and how many were converted to actual sales. E-mail marketing software makes the work faster and easier.

5. Determine your prices

The next thing to do is to figure out how much you should charge for your services. You have to take into consideration your business expenses as well as the time and efforts you will invest in your business before coming up with a competitive price that would justify your efforts and expenses.

6. Devise a sales and marketing strategy

This is a kind of business that needs effective and strategic marketing. You would need to carefully decide on how you want to promote your services and build a customer base.

7. Create a business website

As an e-mail marketer, you can hardly do much without a professionally designed business website. Your website would serve as your landing page where your own clients can check you out. You would also need a good internet service provider and host server that would be able to handle a large volume of data that you would most likely be dealing with.

In conclusion, i want you to know that E-mail marketing is a smart business idea especially now that it is increasingly becoming popular among many companies. Over the next few years, the usage of e-mail marketing as a means of advertising is expected to rise and you can position your own company to take a large share of the market by starting your own e-mail marketing business now and offering your clients first class services with proven results that would keep them coming back and referring others.download

College is full of people who dream big. If you’re one of those people, hats off to you. You have a unique set of goals and skills that will shape this world for years to come and I honestly must give you personal kudos.

If you’re not one of those people, there are a few things that you can take away from the lives of college entrepreneurs to help make yours better.

1. BE OK WITH FAILING
The cornerstone of success is never giving up. With that being said, young entrepreneurs need to learn that it’s okay to fail . In fact, it’s one of the greatest things that you’ll do in your career and life. Failing gives you so much wisdom- if anything, it teaches you what not to do. But in order to be successful, you have to be okay with failing. If something doesn’t work, you have to be dedicated to getting it right. Trail and error is sometimes the only way to do so. Plus, think about it. Do you really think that everyone who is successful gets it right on his or her first try? Nope. In fact, Michael Jordan himself was cut from his high school basketball team at one point. Now he’s considered one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Seriously.

2. BELIEVE
It’s easy to believe in the things that you want to embody. The hard part is being able to believe in yourself, even when everyone else doubts you. Whatever product or service you’re offering, believe that it can make it. Nobody will buy into a scheme if the mastermind behind it doesn’t even believe in it. The power of believing can go a very long way, not only in being an entrepreneur but also in life. Believe that you can get it right. One day, you will.

3. NETWORK
Being successful is becoming less and less about what you know and more and more about who you know. That’s a fact. Ask some of the most successful people in the game. You’ve got to be able to network in life. This means meeting new people, supporting others, interesting yourself in other people’s products, and so on. Being known as the person who listens and helps others is a great reputation to have. It’s still very, very important to know things too. Don’t think that you can just drop out and make it in this world because a college education can get you a very long way. But supplement your knowledge with other people who also have a unique set of qualities and some knowledge of their own. Multiple minds are better than one mind. Be willing to communicate with others and reach out.
All in all, I’m not saying that you’ll be an entrepreneur if you follow these tips. But you will start to think like one if you do. Take some initiative with your life! Who knows where it will take you.IMG-20160805-WA0045[1]

Massive tasks or projects have the capacity to strain the limits of any company’s knowledge and resources at times. The CEO must decide if it’s worth spending valuable time and money to tackle something that could dramatically affect the team’s productivity. Often, only an outside third party can knock out those projects and get the company from point A to point B. Finding a third party that can work seamlessly with your own business may seem daunting. But leveraging outside partnerships is often more effective, and less expensive, than taking big your projects on

EVERY MOVE COUNTS

For small businesses especially, every minute and every dollar must be squeezed for all they’re worth. Establishing trusted partnerships with vendors, service providers and outside experts will ensure those seconds and cents are well-spent, resulting in a myriad of benefits, particularly if you’re tight on resources.

No new business is expected to have a staff of experts in every field. Partnerships can provide the expertise needed without a nationwide search for in-house talent. Plus, the commitment level isn’t as high with an outside source, so an unsuccessful relationship can be more easily severed without damaging your team’s internal culture.

Business partnerships can also be used to better serve customers in unexpected ways. FedEx, for example, offers conveniences like brochures, business stationary, and direct mail services for businesses to strengthen their branding and outreach. Everything from bulk supplies to alternative services can be improved by capitalizing on these strategic business relationships. It’s all a matter of building the right arrangements with the right teams.

SETTING UP FOR SUCCESS

When partnering with an outside service provider, the beginning phases are crucial. You must go above and beyond with your communication, transparency, and expectations. View this as an investment; the more time you put into the beginning of the relationship, the more return you’ll see on that investment in the future.

The point of a true partnership is to promote growth. Establish the right framework and work toward a better business with these steps:

1. Get Your Ducks in a Row

Make sure you have your specific project, internal team, processes, and procedures in place so these vendors can come in and do their jobs well.

Imagine each business is a house. You may hire the most impressive landscaping team to mow the lawn and trim the shrubberies, but if the kitchen is on fire, the whole project is doomed from the start. Get your own house in order before you look for help from the outside.

2. Lock in Your Goals with Their Capacity

Chances are good you aren’t this vendor’s only client. If you expect assistance that goes far above and beyond a vendor’s initial offer, it’s time to dial back your expectations.

Many vendors can produce excellent work, and excellence should be expected. Just remember you’re not a client’s boss, and there is a threshold where your partnership stops providing them with value.

3. Keep Them in the Conversation

It is incredibly important to be transparent about what you want and need. Give detailed information whenever you can, and remember no piece of insight from you will go unwanted. Constantly check in and be prepared to commit to having a very open line of communication.

4. View Partnerships as Equals

If you begin to see your vendors as an extension of your own team, you will be in great shape. A business should have the same goals as its vendor, treating the vendor like any other highly valued employee. Let the vendor know when it’s performing well, and be upfront and honest if it isn’t.

If a partnership doesn’t make your business stronger, faster, or more efficient, it’s a waste of your time. More often than not, however, these relationships with vendors are crucial to a business’s early growth.
If you know what you need, what to expect and how to implement it efficiently, a quality relationship will bring both you and your partner to new and impressive heights.

Thanks.
