"All over the world, there is a rising Internet penetration and an increasingly adoption of mobile phones that has led to tremendous changes in the way people live and do business. About 80% of people today, research products or services online - via Google Search, Social Media and Online directories - before making a purchase decision. In Nigeria, there are over 90 million people online, searching for information about various products and services and this presents a huge opportunity for small and medium businesses to leverage the Internet to reach a teeming audience and ultimately grow revenues."
