What kind of pamphlets are you printing?


#3

Are you creating presentation videos?


#4

Your plans are good, but are you going to signing up up to 200 merchants and in what timeline, anyways wish you well


#5

A four(4) pages short, detailed and illustrative design pamphlets explaining Smartcash services, is what we are working on for the conference and business owners meetup.


#6

@excellentsmart All our speakers are going to have and submit presentation slides.

A detailed video explaining smartcash services will also be presented at the conference which will be available online for people to learn from and will be given to on board merchants.
Subsequently, we’re going to be producing more videos explaining Smartcash services and also for Smartcash club update from various institutions they are operating from… This will serve as community feedback.


#7

Thanks for your comment @Mikedave98, Our goal of introducing Smartcash to a minimum of 200 merchants at the conference is going to be done but on boarding them will be a continuous activity, that will be constantly put in check by the Smartcash ambassador that will be set up through this conference and workshop.
We can be assured of 20 merchants adopting Smartcash into their businesses in few weeks after this conference, but the goal of on boarding 200 merchants will be a continuous one until we hit it in Nigeria through various conferences that will be holding at various top institutions in Nigeria.


#8

your budget doesnt add up.

please update and fix the math.

2280+625+1100+800 is not 6525

also, if you are paying the “volunteers”, how are they volunteers?


#9

The math is correct, you omitted to add the budget for the conference in your math, i think it wasn’t well spaced and have corrected that…

On the remuneration assign to volunteers, it serves as payment for their services and also personal costs would be incurred in the course of carrying out their duties.

Also, they would assist in on boarding merchants after the conference.


#10

The correction looks fine.

You are still over on admin cost, per your latest #675 submission.


#11

How much should the admin cost be?


#12

It is on the terms and conditions that you agreed on upon proposal submission.
