|Business / Re: For-Profit Library (Media Rental) Business Strategy Essay Contest by mambenanje(m): 9:41am On Oct 05, 2011|
waooh been following this conversation and its been very much informative, and now I decided to drop my2cents
I would say Nateevs is a very smart guy with limited information, with more information about what is happening in Africa and business in Africa most of his ideas are going to be very great
I think Mr Globe has solid points but he fails to elaborate on the points he makes hence you can underlook everything he says because its not explicit. I suspect its because he is typing off his phone on the highway
Truth be told a chain of libraries in Nigeria will help in the short term (Mr Globe style) and in the longterm (Nateevs style)
if you look at it very well Apple started the iPod when they already knew they will introduce the iPhone, iPad, I assume this because the series was systematic which means they had say a 10yr plan
if you setup a chain of libraries, they will become the store fronts to sell these kindles and e-readers as supplements for the hard book business overtime and then they will gradually replace (if they will ever) the hard book business, this way you are ready for the future yet having a life not starving to death.
Nateevs believes more in the western culture where people have venture funding and they can starve for 5yrs while buidling the business that will last the next 30yrs and start making profit from the 7th year (Amazon.com facebook.com)
but I say in Africa physical libraries will be the phase one of the project, then as people come into the library they can be introduce to kindles and the library can get these master cards, fast wifi and e-reader assistants that will help these Parents, students, kids on learning how to buy these books online, then this becomes an extra reason to go to that library, remember people will be going to the library for books and things related to books which is but natural that they will be happy to listen to a sales person in the library tell them about these new tools and to me the chain of libraries will now become a very strong partner for Apple, Amazon, Google, Samsung, they will see value working with an established books source all over Nigeria
please I am just sharing my idea ooh

|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Pls I Need A Job Ugently by mambenanje(m): 5:09pm On Sep 16, 2011|
well you need a job like I said in another post. you can use this tool www.njorku.com/nigeria and search all jobs available on all websites in Nigeria. this way you will use say 5mins and find jobs that you can apply for, but men to get a job is not easy, first you need to have experience
|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: I Need An It Job Please by mambenanje(m): 5:06pm On Sep 16, 2011|
guy you need a job then simply search all Nigerian job websites by using this tool www.njorku.com/nigeria or create an email alert that will send you ICT jobs everyday from njorku.com
|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Browse And Search Jobs All Job Sites In Nigeria With Your Mobile Phone by mambenanje(m): 4:43pm On May 27, 2011|
thanks what in particular we need to improve ?
|Webmasters / Re: Can You Please Review Www.njorku.com ? by mambenanje(m): 2:05pm On May 05, 2011|
finally we have fixed that ranking issue for africa wide searches. let me know if you still see old and expired results first or if it shows the recent ones first or still shows the old and expired ones for this your test query: http://www.njorku.com/search/jobSearch?query=chemical+engineering&country=-1
|Jobs/Vacancies / Browse And Search Jobs All Job Sites In Nigeria With Your Mobile Phone by mambenanje(m): 5:34pm On Apr 26, 2011|
recently we rolled out www.njorku.com a job search engine for Africa and you can use it to search nigeria only jobs, it searches all major nigerian job sites and its index increases by the day. you can also browse the jobs and see recent jobs aggregated here www.njorku.com/browse or use your mobile phone to search for the jobs on the go via www.njorku.com/mobile
imagine searching all the nigerian job sites in one place, nairalist, naijahotjobs, jobberman, and then visit the actual site only when you find a job for you,
also create email and sms alerts
|Webmasters / Re: Can You Please Review Www.njorku.com ? by mambenanje(m): 12:19pm On Apr 16, 2011|
thanks for your feedback,
we will see how to show most viewed (really cool idea).
as for they leaving to other sites we cant do much, we are only a search tool
but we will try out other options to make it sticky
|Webmasters / Re: Can You Please Review Www.njorku.com ? by mambenanje(m): 12:54pm On Apr 14, 2011|
I opened that link http://www.njorku.com/search/jobSearch?query=chemical+engineering&country=-1
and noticed that the first 4 results are a month old but the 5th to 10th are about a week old, did you notice that too ?? its still not perfect as we have to make those first 4 that are a month old disappear
so thanks that is noted, any more reviewers ?
|Webmasters / Re: Can You Please Review Www.njorku.com ? by mambenanje(m): 12:44pm On Apr 14, 2011|
ok thanks a million,
that is a known problem and we are trying to figure that out, seems the volume in case of africa outweighs the time factor, we not perfect yet but if you note my link, it will help you for Nigeria, we go fix the Africa
thanks a million
|Webmasters / Re: Can You Please Review Www.njorku.com ? by mambenanje(m): 12:33pm On Apr 14, 2011|
your feedback is taken seriously
what I meant was njorku.com provides search to jobs available in Nigeria and we dont create jobs. so if there are not jobs, our engine wont do much to you in that category.
and definitely cyber cafe time cost a fortune thats why njorku is needed to help you buy 10mins and scan most nigerian jobs available for you in say 5mins then go home and try again tomorrow
you can also have it on the go www.njorku.com/mobile on your phone and we hope MTN nigeria will accept to offer this free like o.facebook.com
but we are not yet perfect but not as bad as you put it.
but thanks all thesame we will go back to the drawing board and fix most of what you mentioned, work in progress
PS: I just did a search for same chemical engineer and I am getting the first result is a week old here http://www.njorku.com/search/jobSearch?query=chemical+engineering&country=ng&x=70&y=13 so what are you talking about ? plz help me reproduce this by sharing the link so I can see the problem as you see then my team can fix it, merci
|Webmasters / Re: Can You Please Review Www.njorku.com ? by mambenanje(m): 12:04pm On Apr 14, 2011|
thanks a million for that, will work that out very fast
|Webmasters / Re: Can You Please Review Www.njorku.com ? by mambenanje(m): 11:52am On Apr 14, 2011|
ooh thank you very much,
if you try a search for say graphics designer in nigeria http://www.njorku.com/search/jobSearch?query=graphics+designer&country=ng&x=89&y=14 I see results as early as a few hours ago, and I understand that some keywords show old results, we cant do much in this case if employers havent posted jobs in the past one month
but thanks for that feedback, so please check this page http://www.njorku.com/search/jobSearch?query=graphics+designer&country=ng&x=89&y=14 and tell me if you still have those conserns ??
what of the design ??

I am lead developer behind www.naijaborn.com
our team is currently working on a new way to find and locate businesses in nigeria, which will be hosted on www.naijaborn.com/business (not yet working)
I have been searching with no results if there is any platform out there that has business profiles of any sort where business men can easily represent and manage their business online for free. I need your inputs and also tell me what features such a platform should have to help expose Nigerian businesses out there
|Webmasters / Re: Please Review My Websites (i Have Done A Few Upgrades) by mambenanje(m): 1:41pm On Feb 11, 2010|
I hate Joomla because , the time taking to build a professional site using joomla ismore than the time I will take to build thesame site using HTML and CSS or from scratch with php.
But the advantage is that I end up makign more money from the client the other way round wihtout Joomla.
the link to naijaborn is www.naijaborn.com
show ya sef
|Webmasters / Re: Please Review My Websites (i Have Done A Few Upgrades) by mambenanje(m): 1:33pm On Feb 10, 2010|
I use my custom CMS or build from scratch faster using Frameworks which speed up database development with techniques like ORM.
Or I use Joomla or Drupal or Wordpress depending on the specific Job and budget
yet I hate Joomla, hence why I didnt develop naijaborn or any of my projects on Joomla
|Webmasters / Re: Please Review My Websites (i Have Done A Few Upgrades) by mambenanje(m): 5:34pm On Feb 09, 2010|
I still HATE JOOOMLAAAAAAAA
|Webmasters / Re: Please Review My Websites (i Have Done A Few Upgrades) by mambenanje(m): 9:58am On Feb 09, 2010|
all I can say is
I HATE JOOMLA

|Webmasters / Re: Nairaland Has Dumped Google Adsense? by mambenanje(m): 2:47pm On Dec 04, 2009|
yeah the poster is really observant, how could he notice that. I barely notice the ads and I guess a lot of users barely notice them hence the reason the ads should be taken off.
If Seun is working on ways to engage Nigerian business men to buy space on this site, then he is beginning to understand a lot of things. I remember arguing with him that he could do better asking Nigerian businesses like Glo, Etisalat, GTBank, Zenith, etc buy ads directly from him with his own solution that might revert to adsense when he has not ad in the space and he sent me to Adwords
time is the best teacher +1
|Webmasters / Re: Ushering In Cole8 Nigeria (collate Nigeria) The #1 Nigerian Search Engine! by mambenanje(m): 12:25pm On Dec 04, 2009|
@Dual Core i guess @ Maven Box is all mine now let me try to use cole8 her straight up
|Webmasters / Re: Are Nigerian Webmasters Really Lazy? by mambenanje(m): 7:55pm On Dec 03, 2009|
@Webdezzi the pride of saying that I have alot of skills and I cant do sites lower than 20k naira. even if the client just wants 5page static site
do you get me now ??
|Webmasters / Re: Punch Newspaper Website Free Again? by mambenanje(m): 4:42pm On Dec 03, 2009|
what is bad is not what Ruppert is doing, but the way he is doing it. insulting King of Web while taking that step. in other words. the best way fight is not to challenge the president because you will be dead in no time
Most people dont have the habbit of paying for news, but they could, though its risky.
Some can do it like you said the financial content seekers but are you sure google will not get sources with about 80% equal content and then present it for free ??
at the end of the day they will loose credibility amongst Google fans and also loose web traffic to their site, but like I read they dont care about the latter. but Mine you Google doesnt make money from news search and its not like news search is google.com its just an experiment. why fight with the king and spoil your name over one of its experiments
|Webmasters / Re: Are Nigerian Webmasters Really Lazy? by mambenanje(m): 4:31pm On Dec 03, 2009|
waaooh nice read
alot of ideas and alot of rants and all good.
To me its about what the client wants. also at what stage is the industry in Nigeria right now. I guess its in the web 1.0 stage and even when the founders of the Internet as in USA were in the web 1.0 stage or the begining of web sites 1994 to 2000, you will realise that their sites too were not that appealing.
Trust me, give the clients what they want when they want it. else you will starve. My team can handle from www.mpyraa.org to www.bygtee.com to www.naijaborn.com, and some of clients pay us as low as 15K naira and others pay as high as 400K naira.
Guys its about giving them what they want and forgetting the pride. Even if you know all these HTML, CSS, Fireworks Photoshop, Dreamweaver, .NET, J2EE, cakephp, Joomla. the final thing is using what you know to make money.
thats all I have to say
|Webmasters / Re: Punch Newspaper Website Free Again? by mambenanje(m): 2:50pm On Dec 03, 2009|
Guys stop yabbing them naaaoohhhh, they have learnt from their mistake. we all learn as time goes on. but the best make mistakes and correct them. thats where I say they are doing good.
I am sorry for Rupert Mudock who is trying to do thesame with his news websites. putting them on subscription so that Google will not index it.
he too will learn like Punch lol
|Webmasters / Any Nigerian Web Sites Having An Api by mambenanje(m): 2:29pm On Dec 03, 2009|
I am currently working on a solution and I would like to know if there are any Nigerian based sites that have open APIs that I could leverage and build my app client to consume them
