How should retailers approach South Africa?

Andre de Wet, who spoke at this year’s Retail World Africa VIP Conference, tried to shed some light into this topic. His advice to retailers trying to breach the African consumer market was simple: create awareness.

The following points were raised and discussed with regards to how to create relevant awareness in the African market:

  1. Create awareness by using media outlets such as television, radio and print media
  2. Be aware and create awareness based on the fact that Africa still uses physical platforms
  3. Create awareness through using mobile advertising
  4. Create awareness through using bulk SMS on mobile phones.
