Traditional advertising will still be carried out on the network by the side just like in our design (Basically the impact should be measurable and cost effective so SME’s would use it instead of spamming like they do everywhere. And it can contain links to brochures etc. The usefulness of the measured data could help determine the click through rates and who clicked so they can conduct follow up etc) Users should be able to have relevant suggestions based on region or interest or sex or Age(Feature) International investors /Corporations looking to invest in emerging markets or do business in Abroad • They are after news in emerging markets • They want to connect with relevant government agencies. • They want to connect with advertising firms(service providers) e.g Nigeria because they want to run a multibillion dollar campaign to introduce their products in the Nigerian market or any other market • They want to award contract to companies like consulting contracts, market research contracts, supply contracts and they need bids.
