….but how comes I cannot see the effects of this boom from waaaay out here.
What is she on about? I feel you asking.
Well, egm was kind enough to courier me a few bridal magazines and I can say that I was THROUGHLY impressed by what I saw beyond the covers.
Then I hit the classifieds…….what was missing?
WEBLINKS to majority of the services being offered. Do I see someone tapping into this business? There is money to be be made here.
e-Commerce looks like Kenya’s weakness and as much as Kenyans like blaming the tools they work with (slow internet, etc.), I think this area is lacking in it marketability (is there a word like that?) to outsiders like me who would like to plan my wedding from the comfort of being miles away.
Only thing I can see is Tour companies tapping on the Safari/Coastal Wedding and Honeymoon packages. What about the rest of the stuff I see as I flick the pages of Samantha Bridal and co? The transport, cakes, venues, the local planners…..the list goes on and on!
How do I plan without boarding a plane and off setting my carbon footprint?
Where do I even start? Jade….help a sistah out!!!
p.s. Spread the word on this please…..
p.p.s. Trying to locate the diaries as I am still unpacking….be patient and 1998 will be unravelled.
