nichemarket Round-up For May 2020

02 June 2020 | 0 comments | Posted by Che Kohler in Updates

May 2020 round-up

Hey nichemarketers & nicheseekers

We've reached the end of May and have now been up and running for about 1 year and 4 months now. Plenty has happened during the lockdown worldwide continues and we move locally into the 3rd month. So much talk about COVID-19 has stopped business and put many of our lives on hold and we're still feeling the effects but we need to come together and make the best of the situation. 

If you want more coronavirus news check out our posts on:

If not, and you just want the stats, then let's catch up with all the highlights with our May monthly round-up, shall we?

What is the round-up all about?

In a bid to show you that we are indeed community focused and want to be as open and transparent with South Africa we will be posting monthly summaries of how our services have improved and what's been happening on nichemarket, so you never miss out on vital information. We're not like other startups and tech business where we want to keep things shrouded in mystery, and we're happy to share our progress with all of you.

We realise we cannot grow without the support of both nichemarketers (business owners) and nicheseekers (consumers) and would like you all to feel part of the nichemarket community.
