Looking for office space in Africa? Where do you want to work?
It’s 2021 and content creation is a full-time job. Who would have thought? But who would have guessed we would be living through a pandemic too? Life can be unpredictable. Covid 19 has done a number on a wide variety of industries and, as more companies opted to work from home, it created a huge demand for digital and online content. While working from home, people consumed endless information at a much higher rate and, as a result, podcasting, blogging, vlogging, YouTube and other social media platforms became an essential – and cost effective – marketing tool for most businesses, with a reach that far outstrips other forms of communication. Enterprise across Africa (and the world) are reaping the benefits of investing in a continually engaging online presence and there seems no signs of it changing.
To create captivating content means that good creatives have to be in the moment and on the move, constantly looking for new ideas to broadcast or post, sometimes with a team and sometimes without, always looking for the perfect location to shoot or broadcast from, and then editing all their material into easily digestible content. Content creation is time consuming and it can take hours, sometimes days to come up with video or audio content that lasts just a few minutes.… wow, it’s almost not worth the effort!
That’s where KOFISI 9 comes in. A brand new flexible workspace for content creators in Nairobi.
