Let us thank God for the bad times too

Bad Times1st Thessalonians 5:18

I find that bad times are humbling times, but it takes a conscious mind that is calm to appreciate the bad times as they come. Bad times, when you think of it, make us appreciate good times because if things were good all the time, the good times would lose their value. Bad times are trial times for in the end you either emerge a victor or a loser. Continue reading

Build a Good Product, and the Money Will Follow, Ask Pebble Smartwatch

Just two days ago the Smartwatch company, Pebble, launched another KickSterter campaign and have passed their goal by 2000%. Their second campaign is now on its way to beat their previous campaign, as well as the Coolest Cooler, as KickStarter’s most funded campaign of all time. I don’t know about you, but this to me is evidence that business is about solving problems, not making money!

Facebook has more than 2 million advertisers

With more than 2 million active advertisers on Facebook, Mark and Sherly are thanking Facebook page owners. In the recent Facebook for Business blog post, they stated that the mission was to make the world more “open and connected” by helping businesses connect people.

two million active advertisers on Facebook

In my own personal and professional experience, the Facebook advertising plat form gives good value for money. We recently rand some Internet Marketing campaigns at work earlier this week and the engagements we’re receiving are kind of worth it. Indeed, it is mission accomplished for the Facebook advertising team.

Nanigans recently released a Global Facebook Advertising Benchmark Report featuring insights on marketplace trends as observed by their in the 3rd quarter of 2014. You can download the full reports here: www.nanigans.com/2014/10/16/nanigans-global-facebook-advertising-benchmark-report-q3-2014/

Have you advertised on Facebook before? What was the experience like? If you haven’t, you should consider it seriously.

 

Thank God for Rain!

RainThank God for rain!

I saw a quote somewhere that said something like…

You say you love the rain, but when it rains you grab an umbrella. How can I trust you when you say you love me?

After living in Cyprus for 9 years where the rainfall in a year here is like 2 months rainfall in Nigeria, one learns to appreciate the rain. In the last 2 months though, the rain has been really funny. There where times I felt my roof would fly off. And I’ve had laundry out in the rain for about 2 or 3 days now and I’m just too lazy to go take them inside. Continue reading

When Things are out of place

Out of PlaceI can feel it

A couple of years ago, I went to speak with a friend about a personal problem. I felt like things were not right somewhere, some worth spiritually. I felt like I was “out of spirit”, like something was out of place, and so I decided to talk to her because I felt she was a spiritual person compared to me. After explaining to her, she said the fact that I actually felt that way means that I was “spiritual” enough to figure it out and that there was nothing more she could do. It did make some sense, like I’ve discussed about conscious consciousness and unconscious consciousness before. Continue reading

Pebble raises more than $8 million in less than 18 hours for its new smartwatch (Pebble Time)!

It seems like Pebble is yet to break another record on Kickstarter! Just about 2 years, the company broke Kickstarter’s record for the most-funded project ever in 2012 with its first smartwatch. Now, they are raising money for a new smartwatch called Pebble Time.

An hour after they launched their Kickstarter campaign to raise $500,000, they raised $1 million from 6k+ backers, which makes it about the fastest project to ever reach the $1 million mark on Kickstarter. It’s less than 18 hours now and they’ve raised $8+ million from more than 37k backers, and counting. That’s about $444k per hour!!

Pebble Time on KickStarter

I have had my eyes on the original pebble watch for so long, and now they release a colored version. It promises a timeline-like feature which display just the relevant notifications and boasts up to 7 days of batter life on a single charge. This is now the hottest smartwatch in the market, believe me!

At this rate, they’re just about $5 million away from being the most funded project on Kickstarter, after the Coolest Cooler which raised about $13 million in August 2014.
