Don't overlook consumers in Africa's rural areas
Don't overlook consumers in Africa's rural areas

It's a mistake to rule out rural spaces and consumers, especially in Africa. Global commerce is fiercely competitive, with business leaders and investors still waking to the vast potential of Africa's burgeoning consumer market. The continent, now home to more than 1.1 billion people, will account for one-fifth of the world's population by 2025. Sub-Saharan Africa's population stood at 1.03 billion last year. What's especially significant is that well over 637 million - 61.6% - of these men, women and children live in rural areas.

What is The Experience Economy?
What is The Experience Economy?

"Goods and services are no longer enough." Way back in 1999, this sentence was the reading line (following the book's subtitle) that accompanied the original hardbound edition of The Experience Economy, a book written by B. Joseph Pine II and James H. Gilmore, describing what they believed would be the next economy to shape the way that businesses work. Today, nearly twenty years later, the line remains truer than ever before, with Pine and Gilmore's theory standing strong in the modern-day events industry.

#OrchidsandOnions: Real appeal for real people is how Kia's Sportage rolls... but who let Sanral's strange Valentine's Day road map out in public?

Advertising has sometimes been described as the art of enticing people into buying things they don't need and they can't afford. In the car business, especially, it is often dreams which are being sold... sadly, those sort of dreams which can get people into big financial trouble eventually.

The smart strategy behind Tourism Australia's 'Croc Dundee' Super Bowl pitch to the Americans

Tourism Australia has resurrected Crocodile Dundee in a new Super Bowl commercial that has already reached hundreds of millions on the day and through social media. Some may have cringed at ad reinforcing stereotypes about Australians as hospitable bush-dwellers, but this is actually a good strategy.

#OrchidsandOnions: Back to the Future, with science. But, Vodacom needs to get back to the basics of customer service...

I remember looking, in some amazement, at the results pinned on the school notice board: I had got a distinction for physical science. Next to the board was our lugubrious, pipe-smoking, Mr Bean-like science teacher, "Rab" Wright.
