Doogee Dagger DG550 - full review - Doogee South Africa
Doogee Dagger DG550 - full review

The Doogee phone brand is becoming quite prolific on Chinese wholesale websites. Over the last few weeks I have had a chance to test three different models: the Doogee Turbo, the Doogee Pixels and the Doogee Valencia. I have now managed to get hold of a Doogee Dagger DG550. It is a 5.5 inch, 1.7 Ghz octa-core smartphone with a 13MP camera and 16GB of storage.

Solving the omni-channel retail dilemma - PriceCheck
Solving the omni-channel retail dilemma

In a recent article (The proof is in the omni-channel experience this festive season) Lynette Hundermark laments the fact "that most retailers are not leveraging the power of mobile phones to aid the consumer on their path to purchase." While this may be true in part, one reason why retailers don't all have a mobile, or even an omni-channel presence, may be because of the cost.

    'Tis the season to be mobile...

    With more active and engaged cellphone users in this country today than ever before, a smart mobile marketing campaign is the most effective way to market your company, brand and service this holiday season. It's direct, interactive and far cheaper than traditional marketing campaigns that often result in a 'hit and miss' approach.

    Mobile and the retail revolution - Millward Brown
    Mobile and the retail revolution

    Shopping. It used to be simple and straightforward for South African consumers. A shopping spree involved travelling to a store or mall, looking at products, making a decision and then making a purchase. Possibly some time was spent perusing sales material in local newspapers or magazines beforehand, and you might have asked for some input from friends and family about the item to be purchased - the basic process was well established. But the digital revolution has changed the way South Africans shop and a primary example of this is the impact of the mobile phone.

    New entrant to UK restaurant sector dominates local search

    Spur, the South African-based family restaurant and steakhouse chain, may have a relatively small physical footprint in the UK but it is punching above its weight in terms of digital strategy. Although the chain has only eight locations, you'd think it has many more based on its Google My Business Locations presence.
