In a casual and friendly way, Deola Kayode takes you by the hand and invites you into the enchanted world of digital marketing and social media.
Despite the title, Kayode clearly writes for social media users globally. However as a social media enthusiast on the African continent, I really enjoy when he goes African and tells us about inventions from this vast continent like Eskimi, Ndani and Mxit. Those cases studies add interesting insights and inspires me. I think you will be inspired too!
