Meanwhile, Diamond Bank, in partnership with Facebook, has commenced the second phase of the targeted training for Small and Medium-scale Enterprises (SME) owners to enhance their businesses using digital marketing strategies.

The training exercise, which took place across seven states; Ibadan, Abuja, Kaduna, Kano, Port- Harcourt, Aba and Umuahia with over 1,000 SME owners in attendance, is aimed at scaling up the skills of small businesses to cater to millions of Facebook users in Nigeria and beyond.

Addressing newsmen in Port-Harcourt, head, Regional Businesses, South, Diamond Bank, Nkem Okoro, said “as one of the fastest growing retail banks in the country, Diamond Bank is always at the forefront of leveraging technology to drive emerging businesses.

“The idea behind the training is to give our SME customers an opportunity to merge their personal and business Facebook accounts to increase exposure to potential customers. There are over two billion people on Facebook and with that, our customers will be able to showcase their products to this large population as well as get leads that will take their businesses forward.”
