Rep. Akin Alabi, Member, Representing Egbeda Ona Ara Federal Constituency, Oyo State, on Friday advised young entrepreneurs to push out quality businesses to enable Nigerians to buy their products and services.
Alabi gave the advice at the Lagos presentation of his book titled “How To Sell To Nigerians” on Friday.
He said that an entrepreneur should always position his/her business for what was in demand.
“We all know that people will always need products and services to buy or patronise, but delivering quality products with good customer services will make the demand more.
“I wrote this book because a lot of young entrepreneurs do not really know how to sell their products to people.
“Most people or customers are dissatisfied with the results they get from entrepreneurs,” Alabi said.
He said his book was written in straightforward and precise language for entrepreneurs to understand how to sell their products.
“Due to economic situations in the country a lot of young people are going into business to feed for themselves.
“Social media platforms are also avenues for them to showcase their businesses, but not all of them are really getting it right.
“This book is all about sharing my experience because I have gone through this entrepreneur journey before.
“I believe every time is a trial period for an entrepreneur, but they need to double their business ideas, especially in this COVID-19 pandemic era,” Alabi said.
Kate Henshaw, a Nollywood actress, urged young entrepreneurs to be authentic, consistent, and have integrity in their businesses.
Henshaw said that they should never give up but keep pushing, so they could become stars with their business ideas.
