Ringier’s Ady.ng, one of Nigeria’s classifieds platforms has today announced that its business pages category has hit 1,000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) just a few months after they were launched to the public.
The pages aim to give SMEs more room to ‘express themselves’ to their clients unlike the brief personal account. Like a profile page or mini-website, the pages are an addition to SME’s which also use the platform where individual citizens all over Nigeria can sell their products or services.
“Ady.ng has facilitated solutions for Nigerian SMEs to get more exposure for their business and products. We are happy to celebrate that so far more than 1,000 small and medium size businesses have signed up for Ady.ng‘s Business Page program and the number keeps growing,” Head of Digital Classifieds Ringier Nigeria, Mr Christopher Bjergmose, said.
Bjergmose added that the Business Page programme was created as a free initiative to help the large number of Nigerian SMEs gain access to a new potential client segment through an online sales channel.
The pages also serve as an extra level of security for buyers on Ady.ng, as all businesses are visited and verified before they are awarded a Business Page.
Now open to all New Nigerian businesses, Ady is working out ways to keep itself unique and outstanding than the rest of the pack.
Footprint to Africa recalls that just recently, Efritin launched in Nigeria and claimed to have over 120,000 listings in just three weeks after launch. This implies that Ady will have to do more to maintain its number as well as push to advance closer to OLX which is now the market leader after merging with Tradestable.
