Managers from developing markets make better global business leaders

"Are you a terrorist or a spy?" I was asked. Intuitively I smiled, maybe I shouldn't have, but I have found a smile can diffuse a situation and honestly I did find the question a little funny. Here I was sitting in a police station somewhere in Africa on the border of two countries, 30 minutes earlier I was arrested for what was deemed suspicious behaviour. Unable to prove who I was or what I was doing, I was whisked away for interrogation.

To acquire or not to acquire in Africa

While the opportunities in Africa are immense, entrance into the continent and its many markets can be a complex, frustrating and risky proposition. Gaining a foothold in a country on your own from scratch, increases the risk of failure considerably.

Stop wasting SMSes, know your audience! - Amorphous
Stop wasting SMSes, know your audience!

Relevant SMS + appropriate audience + right time = excellent ROI. Laurie Sloan from Hudlr (Amorphous New Media) explains that personal relevance of this kind gives marketers a unique and powerful advantage in that customers are far more likely to respond to a message tailored to their demographic profile than a generic, catch-all communication message.

Africa's first focused trade fair for furniture, décor and design has launched
Africa's first focused trade fair for furniture, décor and design has launched

On 10 July, the doors seamlessly opened to what promises to continue to be the most important decor, furniture and retail event on the African continent. This was the inaugural Inspire Trade Expo, which ran until 12 July 2014 and was the brainchild of expo genius Rina Fortmann, who was not only a director of SARCDA for many years, but who also chaired EXSA (Exhibition Association Of Southern Africa). This show was a properly controlled trade show where every single visitor had to pass a host of stringent criteria in order to be allowed access, due to the focus being on quality trade visitors instead of thousands of consumers.

Creating a successful African business strategy

Building a brand in Nigeria: a South African marketer's guide - Yellowwood Future Architects
Building a brand in Nigeria: a South African marketer's guide

For many ambitious South African businesses looking to expand their footprint across Africa, Nigeria is an obvious choice. With a population of 175 million, it is Africa's largest market and has more consumers than anywhere else. The Nigerian economy is growing at an average 6.8% per annum, dwarfing South Africa's modest GDP growth rate. And the country has a rising consumer class that is ambitious and aspirational, with smaller families, higher incomes, better education than previous generations and increasing connectivity to digital and mobile channels. Nigerians are highly receptive to western brands and very brand conscious. It sounds like a marketer's dream.
