Commenting on the new service Seeletso Reikeletseng, mobile advertising sales executive at Incepta Communications & PR said: "This is a revolutionary service, as it is a first of its kind in Botswana."

Reikeletseng said it creates an opportunity for customers to know about exclusive deals from local brands and also benefit local brands and various suppliers to reach a wider network of their target audience, increasing the chances of converting leads into actual sales.

"This new service will help improve efficiency in business, as customers will receive deals and promotions from local brands and stores they have opted for with just a click on their mobile phones, and brand owners will be assured of a reliable and most effective means of advertising their products and services, " Reikeletseng added.
