How To Be A Great Sales Person!

Hello, my amazing friends and family! I hope you all are doing great. Today, I am going to share with you ideas on how to improve your marketing and sales skills as a business owner. During my master’s study at the University of Dundee, I was a student mentor and I coached my fellow Master’s students in Marketing and Management on how to improve their study skills, self-care and achieve good grades. I also wrote a thesis on digital marketing of Hilton Hotels in The Netherlands. I conducted some research on the digital marketing activities of Hilton Hotel in The Netherlands, I compared and contrast with other social media activities of their competitors and also advised them on how to improve their digital marketing. I have also coached SME’s on sales and marketing. It is very important to have great marketing and sales skills in order to earn more customers. For example, Amadore hotels and Roompot holiday homes in Zeeland has a great website. Easy to access and attractive. Here are some skills you need to earn more customers and improve your sales skills. Eneco in The Netherlands is also very good with marketing and sales, the company takes time to train its sales force before sending them to the field. While working for Eneco a few years ago, I had the great opportunity to receive some decent sales training and work with a very professional sales force.

  1. Have a great website
  2. Be kind to your customers
  3. Use social media tools to relate with your customers and share your business activities
  4. Advertise often online
  5. Know your products and services you offer very well
  6. Watch what your competitors are doing online and learn from them
  7. Practise active listening. Talk less and listen more to what your potential customers has to say.

By the way, Are you planning to visit Zeeland in The Netherlands soon, i highly recommend Roompot holiday homes, Fletchers hotels and Amadore. You will definitely  enjoy your stay.

I hope this blog post impired you. I am a business and digital marketing consultant. If you need me to coach you on how to build a website, place an advert for your company online, create customised pictures  you can use to promote your goods and services, manage your social media accounts, improve your blogging skills,  seo or sea, please contact me. I would love to work with you.

How To Start A Business In The Netherlands And In Nigeria!

Hello, my amazing friends! I hope you all are doing great! Many of my friends and family have been pondering on how to start a business in Nigeria and also In The Netherlands. Whenever I travel to Nigeria, My friends, my family members keeps asking me, Ekene, how do we come to The Netherlands, how do we start a business in The Netherlands? here in The Netherlands, I have received so many requests to write a blog post and coach on how to start a business in Nigeria. So let’s get started, guys! I am so excited about writing this blog post.

  1. Visit the Nigerian Immigration in Denhaag, say to them you would like to visit Nigeria, find someone to invite you to Nigeria. KES in Denhaag help with the visa application to Nigeria and other African countries. A few years ago, when I was travelling to Nigeria, I used the services of KES in Denhaag in The Netherlands.
  2. Choose a business name,  develop a business idea. Visit the chamber of commerce in Nigeria for business registration. I and my family have a registered business in Nigeria called Solite global travels. Nigeria is a great country to do business, there are very successful businessmen in Nigeria such as Aliko Dangote!
  3. You may want to rent Airbnb in Lagos Nigeria or stay in great accommodation in Lagos or Abuja. I recommend Eko hotel Lagos, Sheraton four points, Novotel Port Harcourt and Ibis Hotel.  Elomaz hotel in Nigeria is great! Whenever I visit Nigeria, I enjoy staying at great hotels. If you do wish to rent accommodation, you may want to use the services of Cross and Churchill in Lagos Nigeria. I used to work for the sister company of Cross and Churchill in Lagos, Nigeria. The company name is Cedar Oaks, laundry and dry cleaning company. I was the marketing and sales executives then, I went around then to banks, hotels, treasure garden estates and other estates to collect clothes to wash. During my working experience with Cedar Oaks, I learnt a lot from the company and also from my colleagues who were working with Cross and Churchill then about estate and facility management. You may want to use the service of Brunel for renting accommodation, hr recruitment and finding a job too.
  4. Promote your business online, use the Facebook ad, twitter, Youtube, great bloggers such as Linda Ikeji,  Bella Naija. You may want to consult some great advertising agencies too.
  5. Solar energy business would be a great business to start up in Nigeria.
  6. You need a business bank account. Banks such as Zennith bank, Uba bank, FCMB, Access bank, diamond bank is great in Nigeria. In The Netherlands, you may want to bank with ING bank, ABN AMBRO, BNB PARIBAS, and Rabo bank.

For the Dutch market, You have to follow basically the same procedure, decide on a business, have it registered with kamer van koop handel,  you may want to visit a notary for your business deed, I recommend 010 Notaris, find a good administrative officer for your tax payment and aangift. Use great websites such as marktplaats, social media, digital marketing, blogging, seo, sea for promoting your business.

I am a beauty, business and health consultant in The Netherlands. Please do contact me if you need my services. I can help you choose a business name, create a business plan, marketing and management.  My lovely angels, how do you promote, market your business in Europe or in Africa? I would love to learn from you.

5 Businesses To Venture Into in 2018!

Hello, my amazing angels! I hope you all are doing well! Today I have decided to inspire you on five top business ideas you can venture in 2018! These business ideas would enable you to become self-employed and independent. You may decide to indulge in these businesses ideas as a part-time job. You would love these tips friends!

I have been a beauty and business consultant for several years now. I have helped several of my colleagues, family members, and friends to find a job, start their own businesses and also helped them with their social media and digital marketing ( business development) I am currently the student mentor of the University of Dundee in Scotland, I coach freshers(new students) on how to earn good grades during their studies, finance,  find a job, start their own business,socializing, management etc especially by writing on the school blog and via WhatsApp messenger.

Today’s blog post is to inspire you on 5 top business ideas. My oldest son inspired me to share with you this blog post, he is very talented, after making several beautiful pictures of me ( this first picture in the black dress was shot by him a few years ago in Mallorca Spain), I decided to inspire you all my great friends, fans and family.

  1. Real estate business
  2. Modeling
  3. Social media consultant
  4. Personal Shopper
  5. Photography

My Daddy has been a building contractor in Nigeria for over three decades now, he and his colleagues have built several schools, polytechnics, houses, business complex and more in Nigeria. He recently advised me to start a real estate business, he promised to guide and coach me. Real estate business is a very cool business to venture in. If you guys need help with buying or renting a house in Nigeria, Europe, please ask me I can give you some advice.

I have had the ample opportunity to work with over four hundred photographers in Europe, I still have their contacts, they were amazing, kind, very hardworking and talented. I have also learned a lot of photography skills during my photo sessions such s editing pictures with Lightroom, portrait professionals, photoshop and more.

I am also a social media consultant, I help companies to make pictures of their goods and services, post online and tag them, sometimes I build websites, update their social media pages.

I have been a personal shopper for over a decade, 11 years ago, when I visited the  Netherlands very frequently, my banker friends from Lekki Lagos Nigeria, my big family, friends, and neighbors in Treasure Garden Estate Lagos Nigeria then used to ask me to buy clothes, perfumes, telephones, iPad, laptops, mp3 players and more. I really enjoyed my personal shopping experience. I am still a personal shopper till date. Over a decade ago, We had two cars, a Chrysler pt, and a Grand Cherokee, I remembered driving often to ShopRite after a long day at work to buy luxurious makeup, clothes, shoes for my friends and family. I was a very busy woman and all my friends and family always loved all the items I picked out for them at the ShopRite shop in Lekki Lagos Nigeria. I have helped several of my friends with shopping for cars, electronics, furniture, cosmetics that was actually my part time job then.

I hope these tips inspired you.

I love you!

Why Customer Service Matters!

Hello lovelies, Happy weekend! Thank you so much for all your kind words, encouragements. I have been receiving alot of positive feedback, you guys love my post and i appreciate it alot. Today’s post is to inspire you . Customer service is very important. Customers tend to return to a service or a business environment where they have been treated well. Its is much more less expensive in maintaing an existing customer base than trying to acquire new leads.  How do i maintain or earn returning customer i here you ask?

Treat your customers well,  be in touch with your customers, offer coupons, discounts, share updates via social media, introduce customer engagement and social media marketing to your business, create personalised  and customised service for your customers.

I hope these few tips were helpful.

I do love to learn from you, what do you do to make your business successful

I love you.

Hallo schatjes, Gelukkig weekend! Heel erg bedankt voor al je vriendelijke woorden, aanmoedigingen. Ik heb veel positieve feedback ontvangen, jullie houden van mijn blog post en ik stel het erg op prijs. Het blog post van vandaag is om je te inspireren. Klantenservice is erg belangrijk. Klanten hebben de neiging om terug te keren naar een service of een zakelijke omgeving waar ze goed zijn behandeld. Het is veel minder duur in het handhaven van een bestaande klantenbasis dan het proberen om nieuwe leads te verwerven. Hoe kan ik terugkerende klant onderhouden of verdienen, vraag je het mij?

Behandel uw klanten goed, neem contact op met uw klanten, bied kortingsbonnen, kortingen, deel updates via sociale media, introduceer klantbetrokkenheid en sociale mediamarketing voor uw bedrijf, creëer gepersonaliseerde en aangepaste service voor uw klanten.

Ik hoop dat deze paar tips nuttig waren.

Ik vind het leuk om van je te leren, wat doe je om je bedrijf succesvol te maken?

Ik hou van jullie!

Pros And Cons Of Living In The Netherlands and Nigeria!

Hello sugar! Compliment of the season, I hope you all are doing fantastic!

Well , am so pleased to share with you the pros and cons of living in The Netherlands and in Nigeria. Here they are:

 

Pros of Living in The Netherlands

1.      The Netherlands is an European country with great health care system.

2.      The Netherlands, with capital Amsterdam is very famous, a great destination for many, worldwide for holidays.

3.      The people are friendly.

4.      There are so many varieties of delicious cheese.

5.      I love riding bike, the people in Holland does too.

6.      Access to the canals!

7.      The economy in The Netherlands is booming and growing, due to brexit, a lot of companies are making their head office to be in The Netherlands in cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam etc….

8.      Access to quality education.

 

Cons

1.      The weather is sometimes so cold!

2.      The mother language is Dutch, and not everyone can speak Dutch language. I love the Dutch language but a lot of foreigners do not have a befitting job due to the fact that they do not speak Dutch

Pros of Living in Nigeria

1.      Friendly people

2.       Rich in oil and culture

3.      Easy access to other African countries especially the (ECOWAS) economic of the west African states

4.      Access to great education, you get English as a basic language.

Cons

1.       The health care is not as advanced compared to other African countries, access to healthy food such as fruits and vegetables in Europe is quite challenging. Although super market such as ShopRite in Nigeria is doing a great job.

2.      Too many wild animals.

3.      In some cities, its quite dangerous to walk on the street at night

Please do share with me your thought in regards to this topic.

Do enjoy the pctures below I took in Nigeria and The Netherlands
