This is a portal that will fix the gap between the masses and the artisans and vice versa

This website will make it easy for an individual to look for the nearest artisan to his/her side for urgent work or service

What you can do as an artisan

You can list your services on our platform in other to make other people see your services if you are in the nearest local government to those that need your service

What you can do as an individual

You can search for services closer to you for example your car broke down near shiun mowe road and you don't know any mechanic in that area we can solve that problem for you provided a mechanic in that area have enlisted on our platform .

Thank you and God bless you

Great idea. I'm tired of the backwardness of our people inspite of graduates they churn out every year. People don't make practical use of the internet. My 3 years of trying to sell things on all the platforms have come to nought. I wish you the best though.

IN NIGERIA, THE PROBLEM IS NOT A LACK OF IDEAS, BUT A CONSERVATIVE PEOPLE NOT RESPONSIVE TO IT

How will u screen quack?
My advice:
*meet artisan associations and register them
*rank them base on excellence in job completion
*charge them like #100-#500 one time payment
*do presentation with projector(slides:picture and videos if possible) if they are convinced with ur presentation; cash will flow

Big idea, little capability.

You need to conquer one Nigerian state, e.g. Lagos, before providing a "select country" option on your website. With a .com.ng, I wonder why you have that menu on your site.

When you try to do everything at the same time, it gets too clumsy, boring, uninteresting, and eventually, it will collapse.

Learn from the pro like dubizzle (as large as the site is, its operation is limited to Dubai). Learn from Uber.

Meanwhile, you need to provide a review menu. Clients and customers should be able to review their service providers. With such option in place, new clients can make their choices.

My problem with ideas like this is that the handlers often times get very little funding to carry out effective operations, marketing/and awareness building. I bet you don't have what it takes to meet and create awareness among Welder associations in one local government area in Lagos state. I bet you don't have the capacity to fund a minute TV ad on Channels.

Again, have you thought about your own revenue generation? Please don't make this a "charity business", it will crumble without a well thought out revenue source. Even NGOs and charity organisations need money to survive. No NGO survives without money.

You gave some very useful food for thoughts that I can use on my sites.

Thanks.
