I always love talking about this registration thing and am sure am not wasting my time,

but I thing every good business supposed to have a unique registered Identity where people will know what your business really is and could be traceable.

What if many people are selling it where you find yourself and somebody was directed by another client of yours to get from you

the only that will help is when it’s said “you will see a banner in your left,

with Johns Stocks captions written” if not you will keep losing customers.

Another thing is commercial business when licensed through registration gives you the business right and authority to go ahead and make money for yourself.

By so doing you will need to be a member of the union to be updated on current trends in the market and follow up changes as well.


Advertising your business will always boost sales a lot and will take your business to the next whole level.

Any business that lacks exposure will die gradually and wiped off within a short while.

Why people are running a one-way market advertising way you can be very smart by going very far using the Tv, radio, newspaper, flyers, bulk SMS, email marketing, online advertisement etc.

Target, you audience, imagine your business in the ears of over 8 million people, imagine in the eyes of millions,

imagine getting to the knowledge of people reading newspaper and online advertising you will not rest

when it comes this far because you will always be up and running to deliver you job at places needed.

Places you can get these stuff cheap and in whole places could be In Akwa Ibom state, rivers, calabar etc.
