Are you listening?

When I met Lindsay – our first guest blogger – she was more than keen to share her experience as a communication specialist. This is her guest post on listening to your customers and converting potential ones. By: Lindsay Grubb I grew up in a home where none of us stopped talking long enough to […]

Be our guest blogger

My posts here have decreased over the past few months. The most natural thing to think is  – oh come up with a new strategy. Talk about some exciting airy fairy little idea that keeps people at the edge of their seats. No edge-of-your-seat sitting, unless you normally do when you write. The plan is […]

Entrepreneur of the Year Award

It is not often that you get appreciated for the hard work you do. The sleepless nights. The pitches you don’t get called back for. But lucky for you, someone out there is watching. This morning in the mail, I got something that might excite you. At least I thought it would. Sanlam and Business Partners […]

The viral spread of ideas (Feat. Seth Godin) : NetwebTV [episode 11]

This episode of NetwebTV was probably the most debated. The concept of Viral Marketing is seemingly dying out in its most organic form. At least for me it seems it is. The way I thought about it was – someone records a video of some or other mishap and it spreads on YouTube. Then marketers […]

Venture Capital Funding : What’s the real story?

We still get into business with twisted intentions, and by twisted I’m referring to the intent for funding without a solid business model.

“What problem are you trying to solve?” counts as one of the most important questions I was ever asked by a business mentor. We tend to have great ideals for starting companies, as we should, but end up losing the plot. I would imagine every business has one thing in mind when they open doors, […]

A matchstick that made it to a movie

In July of 2009, I announced the Netweb Event for that month with a video give away sponsored by Missing Link. Little did we know that the prize would go to an amazing project I had been following for a while. One Matchstick, a concept where the founder is trading a single matchstick till she […]

Connecting and traveling 9000 kilometres at 25km p/h

When Telana called me last week about Ruan a cyclist who aimed to explore South Africa for 60 days. I thought it was an interesting story to follow and bring to you, along with the lessons it would come with. Little did I know that the lessons would start sooner than he’d leave. I then […]

What makes you an influencer?

Being an influential entrepreneur has been a target of mine for a while. When you are an influencer; people listen to what you have to say, act on it and that changes your company’s profitably. What makes you influential? What makes 4000 people retweet your posts? Why would people knock down your down because you […]
