So you run a Small Business or hope to start one soon.
Did you know, Nigeria unemployment rate was recorded at 12.1 percent in March quarter of 2016, up from 10.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015, reaching the highest since December of 2009’. (Source: National Bureau of Statistics, Nigeria).
Due to this rising rate and the deplorable state of the economy, more people are making that decision to start their own businesses.
For instance, Lagos State has a population estimated at 21 million in 2016 making it the largest city in Africa, with 11 million entrepreneurs; that is, one in every two Lagosian is a small business owner. (Source:www.lagosstate.gov.ng)
Also, 49% of small business owners aren’t sure if their marketing efforts are effective, and over 14% know they’re not. We realized that small business owners have to juggle a lot all on their own, from trying hard to learn the ropes of being the perfect entrepreneur to understanding how to bill clients accurately and knowing what free tools are available at their disposal.
Which is why, we at MARKT DEY saw the need to not only run a small business directory that connects brands with its direct target audience. But to help the potential business owner grow by constantly sharing business tips, insights, and empowering your brand to gain more visibility.
At MARKT DEY, we are passionate about growing small businesses, and we are aware of the challenges small businesses encounter each day.
