Business / 10 Businesses You Can Start With 50K (or Less) In Nigeria 2022 by EntrepreneursNG(f): 10:46am On May 09
Startups and small businesses are the bedrock of economies. That is because small businesses provide employment for people when the government and big private companies cannot. Additionally, small businesses help solve problems in society. More importantly, small businesses help entrepreneurs to become self-reliant and become economically viable citizens.

It is due to the positives that many Nigerians have become more interested in entrepreneurship and running their own businesses. However, due to the harsh realities of the economy in Nigeria and many other African nations, individuals looking to start small businesses do not have enough capital to venture into entrepreneurship.

As a result of the above, please do find below 10 legit businesses you can start with 50k or less in 2022.... https://www.entrepreneurs.ng/10-businesses-you-can-start-with-50k-in-nigeria/

Business / 2020 United Nation Global Climate Action Award Application Is Ongoing by EntrepreneursNG(f): 10:19am On Feb 14, 2020

Business / Are These Non-governmental Organisations Raising Funds Or Hell? by EntrepreneursNG(f): 3:53pm On Feb 11, 2020
The thing about NGOs, for the most part, is that people have learnt not to trust them.

Or maybe it’s just the dishonesty in a lot of us. We cheat people day in day out, so we expect to be cheated.

However, if you consider the statistics, you will see the rationale behind this act of distrust. For example, Wyclef – Haitian earthquake relief fund scandal in which his charity, Yele, was indicted for fraud allegations and debt after mishandling funds amounting to $16 million. Also, in the US alone, several cancer charities have been dissolved following the same reasons – misappropriating funds.

But then that kind of mentality puts well-meaning NGOs in a quandary. How are they supposed to raise money, without which they cannot do anything?

In my opinion, It wouldn’t be a bad idea for NGOs to organize fundraisers. It could be a celebrity match or auction of artworks created by kids. There could be essay competitions for the children/victims with prizes provided by the general public. The Mirabel Centre could have a celebrity debate between some of their ambassadors (Bimbo Akintola is one) or even between their ambassadors and students of a school, and people buy tickets to watch. High profile chess or scrabble competitions can also be organised such the public is informed about it and can support whatever way they can.

What's your opinion?


Business / How To Get More Work Done And Get The Best Out Of Yourself by EntrepreneursNG(f): 3:29pm On Feb 11, 2020
As an entrepreneur, you must understand sometimes, it's like you cannot afford to take a moment off work or lose sight of the goal. Because there’s always something to do.

And yet because we’re human, there are times we’re too tired or too stressed or too jaded or too listless or generally too ‘too’. Sometimes we’re just not inspired to do anything; even watching TV seems like too much stress. We cannot seem to get ourselves together; we cannot seem to move from point A to B as easily as we did yesterday. Yet there’s work to be done. How do we do it?

1. Visualise

Before you start any project, whether personal or paid, always have a picture of what you intend to achieve with it – to generate conversation or make a bestsellers’ list or just to increase your account balance. When the "why" of is known and is clear, the how becomes easy.

2. Plan

Embrace the attitude of planning. Always have a timetable. Always. We all know things hardly ever go according to plan, especially when we’re dealing with factors entirely beyond our control. A plan shows you have dedication. A plan means you intend to do it no matter what.

3. Turn Off/Disconnect

This is important to your productivity because it keeps you fresh and aware. As a creative, I require lots and lots of silence – even when I’m working. I like to turn my phones off so everything is controlled and at an even keel. There are no surprises; no unpleasant interruptions or conversations for that matter. It’s important to keep yourself in a place, at least mentally, where you can work.

Business / Four Types Of Entrepreneurship. Where Do You Belong? by EntrepreneursNG(f): 11:39am On Feb 11, 2020
It is imperative that business owners know the type of business they are running. This knowledge will help you know what is obtainable at that level so that your growth can be steady.

Basically, there are four types of entrepreneurial ventures according to Steve Blank. Steve Blank has written some of the most thought-provoking books on entrepreneurship. You should read The Four Steps to the Epiphany and The Startup Owner’s Manual.

1. Small Business Owner

Actually, many business owners fall into this category. The practice is usually a small operation delivering a specific or limited range of products or services. You don't necessarily have to be the one running the business. Hence, you can be a full-time employee and still run it by the side.

You can have a group of employees or teams who you will distribute duties to accordingly and they'll deliver to you as agreed. The goal actually is to build a secondary source of income. The beautiful thing about small businesses is that it can grow into a big business if well sustained.

2. Scalable Start-up

This is a kind of business that has high growth potential. They usually have high adoption rates, high engagement rates, high revenue rates, etc. There’s something about the product or service that sticks and causes it to go viral. While you can start this business while on your 9-5, you can’t sustain its momentum or fulfill its growth potential without committing full-time to it.

Business / Ways To Improve Customer Engagement And Increase Your Revenue by EntrepreneursNG(f): 1:43pm On Feb 03, 2020
Business is all about satisfying customers and make them want to keep coming back. If you can master the art of communicating excellently with your customers, you will record tremendous growth in your business. In case you are finding it difficult to engage with your customers, let's look at some of the ways to overcome this challenge and be an expert at not just engaging with your customers, but making cool revenue while at it.

1. Measure your Customer Engagement Level

According to Peter Drucker, “you can’t improve what you can’t measure.” The first step to correcting the defect in your customer engagement level is to find out what the problem is. What are you doing wrong? Who is your target audience? Is your content relevant to them? What content do they relate with more?

How do you measure your customer engagement? Some of the things to check for include customer feedback, revenue, referrals, repeat customers, how people engage with your online content and website, etc.

2. Embrace the power of feedback

In truth, feedback is a powerful tool to correct your defective customer engagement. Ask your customers questions on their experience with your product or service. Give them room to air their dissatisfaction. It's not too much to give them a call every once in a while. That way, they will feel important and part of your business.

Really, effective communication with your customers will help you recognise what you are doing right or wrong. And, with this information, you will know what to focus on and what to discontinue.

3. Make Your Brand Fun

When putting plans in place to engage customers, don’t forget to add some element of fun to it. Really, customers don’t care about your business, they are only concerned about the value you can offer them. And, they can sure make do with some level of fun. So, while giving value to your client, let them also have a good time patronising you.

4. Use Social Media To Your Advantage

If you are running a business in the 21st century and you are not embracing the power of social media, you are really laid back. As a matter of fact, social media allows you to get closer to your immediate and prospective market.

For example, Instagram shows the number of engagement your post attracts. With this information, you will have a better idea of what your customers look out for, so you can push out more of such content.

Business / Cheap Ways To Promote Your Business As An Entrepreneur by EntrepreneursNG(f): 11:57am On Feb 03, 2020
If you are a startup or existing business in Nigeria, you will understand that there are variable expenses to incur every day. In like manner, you have fixed expenses that take a bunk of your money. Meanwhile, your aim, in the long run, is to record tremendous growth in your business. Needless to say, excess expenses can do great harm than good to your business.

For the purpose of this article, I will be focusing on the cost of promoting your business which of course, is one of the most important things you will need to spend money on regularly. That said, here are ways to promote your business as an entrepreneur without breaking an arm or leg.

1. Maximize your Social Media Presence

Record has it that we have over 2.23 billion users on Facebook, 1billion users on Instagram and 335m users on Twitter. Hence, if you play your cards right on all the recognized platforms, you will be at a great advantage over your competitors.

2. Own A Website And Maximize It

Gone are the days when creating a website is expensive. Nowadays, you can create one for yourself in the comfort of your bedroom. With platforms like Wix.com and Wordpress, you are halfway to owning your website.

More than owning a website, you have to optimise your website for search engines, performance, and accessibility.

3. Ask For Referral

The bible text "Ask and it shall be given unto you" is also applicable in business. Has someone enjoyed your service or is satisfied with your product, ask them to sing the praise of your business by referring others to you. Sometimes, you may need to give out freebies or have a commission
program in place for anyone that refers a customer to you.

Don't forget, words of mouth still work wonders today.

4. List Your Business on Local Online Directories

Listing your business on local directories is one of the cheap ways to market your business as an entrepreneur. In fact, local listings should be a must for any business as search engines populate these sites at the top of their search results when a user is searching with local intent. Besides, an accurate and updated local listing plays a vital role in local SEO.

I have listed four other potent ways to promote your business and this has helped future-forward entrepreneurs to achieve success. Read it up here>>>https://www.entrepreneurs.ng/cheap-ways-to-promote-your-business-as-an-entrepreneur/

Today, we are going into the world of Nollywood and looking at the people who are making things happen in the industry: movie producers. Nollywood keeps producing talents who have gone the extra mile to differentiate themselves. Today is not about the actors and actresses you scream about and adore. We are shinning the torch on the people behind the shine of many Nollywood celebrities.

1. Emem Isong
The first person of producers on our list is no other person than the stunning Emem Isong. A talented Akwa Ibom. In 1994, she co-produced the movie “Jezebel”. Thereafter, she produced her first solo movie “Breaking Point” in 1996.

Of a truth, Tope Oshin has paid her dues and she deserves all the accolades coming her way. She was listed as one of the most influential Nigerians in film in 2019. It will interest you to know that Tope Oshin is the brain behind some of the highest box office breaking movies in Nigeria.

It is safe to say that Kunle learned well from his late father ‘Ade Love’ who was equally a great movie producer in his lifetime. Amongst all, Kunle Afolayan is the producer of ‘The Figurine’, ‘Phone Swap‘, ‘Irapada’, ‘October 1‘, ‘The C.E.O’, ‘Omugwo’, ‘ROTI’, ‘The Tribunal’, and the most recent – ‘Mokalik’.

Our job at Entrepreneurs.ng is ensuring that entrepreneurs succeed in their businesses, hence, we have compiled how the entrepreneur can improve their leadership skills. Here you have it guys!

1. Own your Business Vision

Vision is critical for a leader. If you lack vision, there's nothing your employees will run with. Write your business vision down and ensure your team is well informed of where the business is headed. That way, everyone on the team can run at the same pace, hence, the business growth can be steady.

2. Discipline

According to Jim Rohn, ‘Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment’. As a leader, discipline is important to the success of your business. It’s never enough to have a business vision; having discipline will help you achieve your vision.

3. Communication

Communication is one of the most essential leadership skills needed by every entrepreneur. Because leadership is about dialogue and needs a relational skill. Interestingly, everything is learnable nowadays. So, you may need to take an effective communication class if you observe that you need one.

4. Strategic and Critical Thinking

A leader is always thinking and stretching their mental bandwidth. A leader knows how to identify opportunities and when to act fast.

Linda is a Nigerian actress and model who started her acting career at Tinsel, M-Net’s Production, where she starred as Bimpe Adekoya. Today, we have highlighted some entrepreneurial lessons you can learn from her. If you are an entrepreneur, tighten your seatbelt and get ready to learn.

1. Preparation

Give Linda a role, and she will put in all the preparation in the world to give her best. A typical example was when she was preparing for her first role.; she saw several movies like Legally Blonde, Devil Wears Prada and also did other relevant researches. Her performance brought deserved attention especially from notable filmmakers like Mildred Okwo and Rita Dominic.

This saying is still true, Opportunity meets preparation. To excel in business, you must strive to stand tall among competitors.

For Linda, she enjoys that her profession gives her the opportunity to act as a different person at different times.
