We often hear people talk about branding when it comes to business and products, but what is branding and how does it affect the outlook of your business or product?
Branding in simple terms means a marketing practice where a company creates a name, symbol, or design that can be easily identifiable to belong to the company. This can be a very challenging and important phase for business owners as it will define you and your company going forward and customers are going to use your brand to distinguish you from your competition. …
We had a conversation with one of our resident UI/UX Designers about what UI/UX is, the misconceptions around it, and the benefits it brings to businesses. Kweku ‘Li’ Diaw, a Digital Marketing Executive conducted the interview.

We define ourselves as a digital product agency. For most people, it raises brows and causes confusion. Digital they know, products they know, but the two together? What at all could that mean? “Does it mean you build TV Apps, mobile apps, social media apps? What exactly do you guys do?” A question we’re almost becoming used to.
To help all of us (you and us), we shed some light on what a digital product agency is. Hang around for a few minutes and we promise you’ll leave a term and concept richer than you came. …
We wrapped up our #30DaysRemote experiment last week Friday. We officially started our remote working experience on Wednesday, 18th March 2020, beating most businesses to it before the official lockdown forced them into it.
It’s been an interesting experience which we have shared with you along the way. We spoke about the transition here. We also highlighted how to work productively, achieve effective work, what a remote business means and had our CEO, HR & Admin also share their lessons with you. Fortunately for us, we got some good press during this sharing period.
We got the opportunity to join the discussion on remote work on Joy Fm’s Super Morning Show, joined a Twitter Chat with Mobile Web Ghana, had some of our articles featured on Business & Financial Times and Citi News Room. All in all, it’s been an amazing journey! …
This article is a continuation and final part of our two-part series, sharing the experiences of our CEO, HR and Admin on working remotely. Read part one here.
What are some of the lessons that you have learnt from this experiment that you would want to share with others?
Emelia: Work is evolving. It’s changing from its traditional way of doing things. I believe that after this pandemic, a lot will change about work irrespective of your department or role. That means that individuals have to adjust to the new norm to avoid being laid off. Companies can learn from the pandemic and acquire laptops and other tools that can help them work from anywhere and not just the office environment. QodeHub was proactive in doing that which has paid off now. So I believe other companies need to take a cue to be proactive, it is key. Also, CEOs and managers should be open to advice and suggestions from employees. …
As a digital product agency, our work allows us to easily work from anywhere. Hence it took us very little time to switch to working remotely since the Covid-19 hit.
We started our #30DaysRemote campaign to share with other businesses how we are progressing with remote work over the 30-day experimental period.
Today, we had a conversation with some of our leaders: the CEO, HR and Admin. To understand how working remotely is disrupting their work and how they’re keeping up with managing the entire team.
We caught up with a few of our interns from previous years and engaged them about their experience interning with us.
Working remotely is increasingly becoming desirable by many companies now more than ever. Some describe it as the “remote work revolution”. This year, more companies around the world are embracing remote work as a better option in times of crisis.
Owl Labs reports that 56% of companies around the world allow remote work. Despite the growing interest in remote work, only a handful of companies operate fully remote. Instead, a higher percentage of companies allow their employees to work remotely a few times in the week while other companies have dedicated remote teams.
To understand how they operate, it is important to know that remote companies, also dubbed virtual companies or teleworks have their employees distributed around the world. These companies have “no physical offices” as such, they manage employees and projects virtually. As described by Glassdoor, in remote work, the location of the employee is irrelevant — instead, their skills, experience and knowledge are what count. …
Today is Day 6 of our #30DaysRemote campaign to share our experience working remotely and most especially, working from home. Because of the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, a lot of businesses and their employees, who can, are working from home. Productivity can be a hassle in such situations, especially if you are yet to get into the “working from home vibe”.
We want to share some productivity tips for working from home in this article. But before we continue, I keep seeing ‘remote working’ and ‘working from home’ used interchangeably and I think you should know the difference.
Working from home is becoming the new normal for many organisations. Especially when coronavirus has caused more employees to stay home in compliance with social distancing guidelines to keep the spread of COVID-19 under control.
We also went remote and thought it wise to share our journey transitioning to remote work with you. We are sharing content every day across all our social media channels with the #30DaysRemote hashtag. Today’s sharing explores our logistical preparation for transitioning to remote.
As a digital product agency, we have been prepping for remote work since our inception. This made it significantly easier and faster for us to make the switch to running fully remote. For instance, our workflow process has mainly run online. We use several tools to carry out everyday business activities. We manage our projects online, do internal communication and task management with preferable tools, which we finally settled on after experimenting with several. …
