Who does not have an idle time on the Internet? :) I suppose that it is pretty normal for us to experience this every now and then. However, the difference I believe is how we use our idle times online, some use it to feed the negative aspects of life while others use it to strengthen the positives which I highly recommend. A few days ago, I was faced with an idle time, I couldn’t work neither could I write, so I wandered around the Internet and then it struck me to go shopping.
By the way, my 2 favourite eCommerce shops owned by 2 ultra talented Nigerians are Adibba.com (owned by Chris Udeji) and Konga.com (owned by Sim Shagaya), these are 2 fine gentlemen I respect a lot and I truly admire the value they are adding to the tech space in Nigeria. Incidentally, they are the only 2 eCommerce sites that I partnered with to sell my latest book titled “Powering your Business on the Internet and Social Media – A Guide for Today’s Business Owner”.
So, I stopped by Konga.com on that fateful day and behold, I saw a notice in the books/stationery category that showed my book as Top in Category……… Below is the screenshot:
Boy, was I glad to see this? Yes of course. This is indeed very cool because I know deep down that I put in a lot of efforts to come out with the book, I wanted a book that will add real value and deepen our growing knowledge base. I know that it will certainly stand the test of time, so my goal is to push out a 100,000 copies to homes, businesses, secondary and tertiary schools all through the federation and beyond. Yes, I believe!!!
My Little Secret
Those who know me can attest to the fact that I love marketing (value oriented marketing I mean) so dearly, which means that I am probably contributing more to the success of the book on both Konga.com and Adibba.com as well other bookshops that I have chosen to partner with, simply because I make it a point of duty to promote the book hard every other day and I mention my partners so people naturally make a choice and check them out. Below is a screenshot from the personal marketing/sales site (book.cfagbata.com) I setup for the book:
A BIG Thank you to everyone out there for supporting me in one way or the other and to you for always stopping by to check out what I have to say. I deeply appreciate y’all :)
Final Take Home: no one can tell the world what quality stuff you are made of expect you. So don’t be afraid to share your knowledge story and experience, certainly some will laugh but eventually others will listen and that is all the opportunity you need to make a difference in life. I wish you all the best!!!
