{LIST} My business bets come 2012

The thing about being in business is that you sometimes get ambushed to give your thoughts, predict markets and trends. So to the tweeps with whom I shared  that interesting dissection of the mobile space at WordCamp in Naivasha, here is what I am betting on in 2012. Not much meat to the list cause that would be tantamount to telling you in details  how I plan to make revenues in the coming months 🙂

  1. Mobile browsing – compelling content outside of mobile apps
  2. Mobile payments – massive gaps with real commerce
  3. Mobile advertising – budgets are tight but deeper measured reach is demanded
  4. Mobile instant messaging – the core need for humanity is communication
  5. Mobile music – one of the best ways to chillout,  relieve stress and have a good time
  6. Location-based services – cause where you are matters
  7. Mobile search- mixing up mobile web, sms apps
  8. Mobile health – information, monitoring and evaluation
  9. Mobile government

What are your bets?

An Africa based entrepreneur in the pursuit of opportunities without regard to resources currently controlled striving to build services that have real-world value for my beloved continent and beyond while having fun along the way.
