    On the 21st of February, the French South African Tech Labs (FSAT Labs), the new incubator and accelerator dedicated to South African and French entrepreneurs, has been officially launched in Century City, Cape Town. This programme was born thanks to the partnership between Methys, an international company operating in digital transformation and Seda (Small Enterprise Development Agency), a South African government agency fostering small business development. Both organizations have invested a combined amount of ZAR10 million in this new programme for entrepreneurs.

    The FSAT Labs offers a new incubation and acceleration structure for Western Cape based entrepreneurs who want to develop their activity in the Digital sector with a clear focus on black entrepreneurship. It offers an incubation program which is totally free for selected start-ups. During 6 months, the FSAT Labs will provide a broad range of services and support the start-ups with a dedicated team of experts who will focus on incubation identification, management and coaching of seed idea and initial opportunity development. This first phase is following by an acceleration phase for the more sustainable businesses for up to 24 months, as well as providing much-needed help in the fundraising process.

    The incubator is currently recruiting its first class of entrepreneurs. The key focus areas that will be addressed by the FSAT Labs, reflecting the specialization areas of the founding members of the French Tech Cape Town ecosystem, will be on 5 sectors of excellence:
    • SMART city: Utility Management, Risk Management, Mobility issues, creating the Smart City to improve people’s lives in emerging countries
    • SMART home: smart home utilities, clean tech
    • SMART commerce: mobile based commerce user experience and engagement model, fintech
    • SMART education: digital technologies applied to learning

     Be efficient!

     

    Want to be as efficient as possible to maximize your revenues when sharing a campaign ? Here are two basic tips to enhance the efficiency of your posts and cash in by sharing!

    While some campaigns are more performing than others and will generate revenues differently according to the object of the campaign and the interests of your network for instance, a few basic principles should allow you to keep making profit. And remember you have everything to win, so follow the rules and make some bucks!

    # 1. Personalize the message to target and engage your audience.

    Tag your friends, make the post appealing, try to write something that will push your network to engage but always respect the information given by the advertiser.

    To keep your message in the top of the news feeds your audience needs to keep liking and commenting on the post. Imagine a snowball, the more it rolls, the more snow sticks to it and the bigger it becomes. Your posts on an adMingle campaign work the same way. The more people like/comment on your post, the more people will see it (friends of the friends that liked/commented) and also engage on it. Remember, the bigger your buzz is, the more money you will make.

    Lets take an example: imagine a campaign for a new cool drink.

    Someone will just share it without following any of our tips, he will likely make 5 Rands on this campaign. Why? The post doesn’t engage his network. Little snowball, little money.

    Lets now take another person that would share the campaign, tag 5 of his good mates and write something like “guys you must try out this new cool drink, best think I drank since the invention of water. Buy a case and join me for a braai on Saturday”. This person could make 500 Rands of revenue. Why? His friends feel engaged by his post. Big snowball, big money.

    # 2. Be time smart.

    Don’t share a campaign when nobody is online. Try to avoid posting in the middle of the night or when people are usually busy. Some people spend a lot of their work time on social media, just saying…
