You have to go where the story is to report on it. As a journalist, you’re essentially running to things that other people are running away from- Lester Holt
They say time is money so having the time to focus on things that are truly important is a welcome luxury in these times of economic hardships. The depreciation of the Naira has seen the cost of living rise due to inflation which has led to Nigerians discovering new ways to save or earn money.
Recently, OLX.com.ng Nigeria’s number one online classified platform, launched a new premium product called Do It For Me (D.I.F.M) where OLX Champs who are sales experts manage the entire selling process on the site from posting the item to closing the deal. This service addresses the needs of users who have no time to post, meet with potential buyers and want to sell quickly and conveniently.
Mrs. Oluchi Afuberoh , a stay at home mum with four kids recently sold her car on the platform using the OLX D.I.F.M service. Afuberoh stated that the juggling demands of four young kids is quite hectic which is what made her opt in for the service. “I was excited when I learned about this new service from OLX. I had used OLX previously to sell my fridge and buy several decorative items in my home like a bedside lamp and wallpaper for my living room. I did not want to be bothered with calls from potential buyers or make out the time (which I don’t have by the way) to meet with people”.
“In a matter of days after the ad went live on the site, the OLX Champ informed me that my vehicle has been sold and I was so excited especially because of the extra cash I now had to attend to my families needs”. She added
Afuberoh commended OLX on their innovation and professionalism. She further added that. “It was very convenient having someone else do all the hassle in exchange for a small fee while I tended to much more important things. It was worth it for me and I’ll definitely use them again!!”.
OLX D.I.F.M is currently available in Lagos and Port Harcourt and will expand to other cities soon.
