The idea that Jos city is surrounded by rocks inspired the name choice. Secondly, the idea that people who are exceptional are called people that rock.
You have been into digital marketing and advertising for some time now, would you say that the occupants of the city of Jos has been welcoming to your trade or not?
People are very welcoming to digital marketing and advertising. It’s no longer news that the mainstream media is less engaged compared to how it was before. Businesses and brands are shifting their preference towards social media. They’re opening accounts, taking orders online and planning deliveries using dispatchers.
Would you say that startups in Jos have progressed over the years or it has been a test and run venture?
Yes. People have progressed in the digital market. In fact, there are opportunities yet to be tapped.
In your recent feature blog post on Facebook, you did make mention of changing the narrative, how do you intend to go about that?
Writing other stories than the usual stories. There’s more about us as people that’s yet known. So, we will engage in conversations that will inspire people, train them on how to be the best in all they do and how best they’ll sell their creativity.
The world today as we know is going digital, what advice would you give to individuals, groups, organisations and religious houses?
The advice is for them to simply go digital. If you can’t turn your office into an App that solves problems, you can open a website, create social media platforms, move your office from paperwork to digital submission. Your bookkeeping should also change.
