somaliaThe Quick Start Africa Programme

Step 1 – Markets: We help you work out which are your target African countries and prioritise them based on a variety of internal and external factors.

Step 2 – Message: Are you clear about your messages? Can you explain in 15 seconds what your company is offering in Africa, why it’s necessary and how it is different to anything else currently available on the market. If not, we can help you develop this.

Step 3 – Marketing: How do you execute your marketing plan in each country? We will help you plan and execute your communication strategy across a variety of media.

Do you already have customers in place in Africa – are they willing to talk publicly about what you have done for them? If so, let’s talk about issuing a press release, writing a case study, getting them talking about you.

Step 4 – Media, analysts and influencers: We will introduce you to the people whose opinions really count in Africa.
