Benue Tech Forum Holds On 21st Of January at Makurdi Benue State

Over the years, tech experts in various states have thought it needful to create platforms/forums that bring them together in order to share ideas for self-development as well as nation building. Those who are part of these platforms can testify of the benefits they have derived and the opportunities they have enjoyed from belonging to these platforms.

One of many of such platforms which many have benefited from is the "Start-up Friday" that offers tech innovators a platform to showcase ideas and in turn get sponsors, potential investors and customers and by implication, transforming tech ideas into full fledged and viable businesses.

Coming to Benue state, a group of tech entrepreneurs who have had a feel of the unlimited opportunities such platforms can offer and given the fact that non of such exists in the state have decided to partner with organisations such as Enspire Incubator, Network of Incubators in Nigeria, Benue State Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and Young Innovators of Nigeria to create the Benue Tech Forum; forum that houses ICT enthusiast, Web Designers, Programmers, Entrepreneurs and ICT Stakeholders. A platform that would eventually integrate tech users for self development, thereby creating a tech-eco system in Benue State.

Introducing ONM - Guaranteed Way to Online Income in 2017

Introducing ONM - Guaranteed Way to Online Income in 2017

Joe Okoro, Toyin Omotoso, Olu Aijotan, Abiodun Romiluyi, Gboyega Ademiluyi are not strange names to anyone in the online business world in Nigeria.

Yes, they are among the top internet marketers in Nigeria, no doubt. And they make good money doing this. But one thing you certainly don’t know about these folks is that, they now generate a substantial amount of their income from ONM.

I’m sure you are curious. “What again is ONM?”, “I hope it’s not another MMM in disguise.”

Be assured that ONM is not a ponzi or get-rich-quick scheme. It is a guaranteed and legitimate way of making consistent income online.

In fact, if you are here looking for how to invest in some funny online programs that will make you money overnight without doing anything, please back off. You have to work.

Like other legitimate internet business, ONM involves selling. And using the internet, you can sell large amounts of any product within a very short time and make a lot of money.

Just think of what it means if you have a product that gives you a profit of #5,000 each. Selling this to just 100 persons monthly gives you a net income of #500,000. That is impossible if you sell offline but with the internet, you can sell to hundreds of customer in a single month and make so much.

With the advent of the internet and digital marketing, you can be in your room, advertise your goods to millions around the world, order your product from the online store (with your Nigeria ATM card), and your product gets delivered to your customer via your courier company. And in that instance, the next tone from your phone is credit alert.

What business model can be easier? From running advert, to making order, to payment and delivery, all done online, without seeing your customer or the products you sell. That is simply incredible.

In 2017, one of the goals of our fast-growing team is to train serious-minded, goal-driven Nigerians, who have passion for success, to become financially free, through online marketing.

But the question is, how do you do that? How do you acquire the needed skills?

Participation is Free but Limited ONLY to the First 100 Registered Persons.
