Hey guys, it has been a really long while.
I have been working on something I’m hope would become the www.yelp.com of Nigeria and hopefully Africa. For it to succeed, I would need the help of each and every one of you.
It would start out as a section of the blog and eventually, depending on its success as a blog section, a website of its own and finally an app would be developed for it.
In the early days of this blog, we decided to start up a section that would showcase and encourage up and coming young business owners. The Young and In Charge Section was a huge success and we achieved this aim.
The primary aim of this new section would be to give consumers a voice to speak out on the services they receive from business owners, it would be a forum to speak out on the good, the bad and the ugly services they receive from business owner. Its very important to note that we are not out to run anybody’s business down and so business owners would be given an opportunity to tell their own side of the story.
In the long run, one of the side effects I hope we would achieve is an improvement of the services rendered by business owners. When business owners know that there is a place where their services are being rated, they would sit up and give their consumers value for their hard earned money.
That said, I would like to introduce the new section of the blog to you, Rate That Biz. Rate That Biz was inspired by my personal experience with the poor services of an Abuja based Tailor. I would be sharing my story tomorrow.
If you have an experience with a business owner you would like to share, please send it to the email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Where possible if you have it, include the business’s/business owner’s contact details.
