For so many years, entrepreneurs have been led to believe that if they build it, people will come.

Facebook offers small business owners a powerful marketing platform.
From personalized, intimate messaging to larger scale groups, entrepreneurs can:
- share value
- build strong bonds
- increase profits
Avoid making the “post and run” error common to most small business owners on the social media site. Nobody simply posts an update that becomes a viral business builder.
As with any social network the value you see reflects the value you offer on Facebook.
Being social, engaging and helpful grows your small business venture persistently over the long haul.
I am not the Energizer Bunny.
But I am a kinda energetic dude.
Many folks want to know my secrets for remaining energized for your online business.

Simply put, blogging is being reloaded in Cameroon!
This was the first bloggers forum in Cameroon that brought together both French and English speaking Cameroonian bloggers residing in Cameroon.
For my friends and loyal readers who are all over the world, Cameroon is one of the few bilingual countries in the world where French and English are official languages.
The event was colorful and I want to recognize the effort of Elodie and her collaborators in making this a remarkable success. Of course, some of the corporate sponsors and partners of the event were Les Brasseries du Cameroun, Nexttel, Nescafe and Star Land Hotel.
It was a colorful event this Friday 28th of August 2015 at Akwa Douala, when Etongo Ondobo André walked away with a brand New Toyota Yaris after spending just XAF200 (about $0.34 US Dollars) a couple of weeks back on Nexttel Cameroon call credit refill.
