First of all, it's nice to see another South African on TR - I'm from SA too and I've never met another South African on this site before. Unfortunately, I'm not full of ideas but it will be interesting to see what you get back - I've also often wondered what I would offer if I owned a small business but have never managed to think of anything particularly groundbreaking. By the way, whereabouts are you? I've noticed that potential gaps in the IT services market in SA tend to depend on the area e.g. financial services companies based mainly in Johannesburg and retailers mainly in Cape Town. I hope you get some useful feedback :-)

IT Bussiness in SA

by KoosG In reply to hi


It looks like there are more than one/two people from SA on TR. I only read all the usefull stuff and do not take part in discussions for I am very busy. I started an A/H IT cc in 2002 and focus on sales&consultancy. It is difficult to tell, but if you advertise enough I think sales will bring you more money.

Consultancy is also good if you have enough clients.

Hope this helps

Close and lock your doors

If you don't know what you are going to sell - or as you say - I don't really have a clue of what I'm going to offer ... close and lock your doors, before you lose you butt..
