It creates an opportunity for customers to know about exclusive deals from local brands. It will also benefit local brands and various suppliers as they will be able to reach a wider network of their target audience, and it increases the chances of converting leads into actual sales,” he revealed.

With the ever increasing demand for specified personalised shopping, Incepta Communications has discovered the need to come up with a service that is appealing, which will benefit a wide range of audiences ranging from teens to adults, taking into consideration their interests and preferences. To this end, the company engaged marketing agency Incepta Communications as a partner, to be able to package as well as market the product adequately within the market.

As an innovative mobile advertising service, Orange Makoya will give Orange network customers the possibility to receive offers and discounts from any brand in Botswana. For this, they will have to subscribe to Orange Makoya by sending an SMS to 1800 and indicate their interests. They will then start receiving offers that fit their interests. At any moment they can unsubscribe or modify their interests. All SMS to 1800 are free of charge.

For companies in Botswana it is a very efficient way to advertise their brands and products. They will be able to create offers and discounts for a specific target and send an SMS with the promotion.
