2020 was the year that Covid-19 brought the world to a halt.
And even though the world is no longer on lockdown, we are still seeing the effects of Covid.
For this post, I am focusing on the positive effects of Covid and how it shaped E-Commerce growth.
Global e-commerce sales increased by 19% surpassing all projections for the year.
Now, you might be wondering why I am writing about the Pandemic.
After all that is not the kind of content that you know me for.
Well, I am doing that because I came across a product that was just launched.
One that would drive as much positive force as Covid did for E-commerce
From Africa To The World
Building a startup in Africa is not easy.
There are a lot of gaps (especially in the area of data) that makes it hard to pinpoint the right solutions to build.
This leads to many African entrepreneurs forcing Western solutions down our throats.
As someone who is constantly on the lookout for impactful products of African origin
Every now and then I see one that truly solves a problem.
But on Thursday last week, I watched a demo for a product that not only felt really needed.
But made me wonder how people in its target market survived so long without it.
It also took me down memory lane regarding the amount of impact a well-designed product can have.
One of the creators of this modern era that I admire so much is Steve Jobs.
Steve is credited with being the pioneer of the Smartphone Industry as we know it.
The iPhone was a huge inspiration for Andriod and other forms of smartphones that we know and use today.
There are some that believe that the smartphone is perhaps the most impactful product of the last decade.
And this is because it has changed the way we communicate, access information, and connect with the world around us.
A computer in your pocket.
Steve believes that the true difference between a leader and a follower is Innovation.
Leaders create products that revolutionize the way we live, work, and interact with the world around us.
Closing The Gap
Fullgap is an example of such a product.
It is being created by product leaders who have a clear understanding of why their solution should exist.
That kind of insight is not stumbled upon, it is gotten from years of constant execution.
The target market for Fullgap is Creatives who want to level up the process behind their gigs.
And everything came together the way it did because the founders have been in the creative industry for years.
Every single feature draws life from a problem they have encountered and conquered in the past.
So they are not building something that they hope people would find helpful.
They are building something that they know people would find helpful.
And when you build with that level of conviction amazing results follow.
The Age Of Professionalism
The creative industry in Africa is one that is in sore need of growth.
Especially in the area of professionalism.
After watching the Fullgap demo, the first thing that came to mind was how it was going to power this.
Do you want standardized contracts for your gigs, Fullgap has something for you.
Do you want a better way to have a bird’s eye view of your task, well covered?
There is nothing that I would write that would help you fully capture the impact of this product.
If you are a Freelancer/Creative that wants to supercharge growth.
You have to experience it.
