This is the platform that Nig at 50 is operating from. The reason being that it will enhance our negotiating strategizing positions for Nigeria at 50 so within the website for Nigeria at 50 there should be a link to Nigeria at 50 website.2.The development of commercial agreements & partnerships need a strong website that is in the reality of Nigeria at 50 potential customers who will pay for these level of sponsorship deals e.g. A. http://www.guinness.com/en-row/<br />(reason they were there at independence see document attached title Guinness 1960 DOCUMENT. B. CENTRICA: http://www.centrica.co.uk/index.asp?pageid=39&newsid=1117&type=17&year=20073.We will balance marketing and visual appeal. We need Cutting-edge technology and Stunning graphics. In my opinion, I have identified trendsetter ideas for Nigeria by researching industry and related events, publications, and announcements nationally. I would like you & your editorial team to look at the following websites. We want this kind of positive, glossy look for Nigeria at 50A. http://bhfmagazine.com/bhfadvert_articles/bhf_mainmenu.htmlB. Asiko: Asiko you can view his work at http://asiko.viewbook.com/the owner is Ade and I have contacted him. He is willing to capture images of Nigeria and has recommended two writers that I think you should work with.Also for writers I have identified for book & website.C.Nkem Ifejika 07958078018 Ifejika@gmail.com (For BBC) He is keen to be part of Nig@50D. Feyi Fawehinimi 07791914166 Olufeyi@gmail.com (freelance in London) has written for Sahara & http://www.facebook.com/FeyiF. I can work with him for website content. E.Also there is Yinka http://www.yinkaobebephotography.com/index2.htmlwho is based in Nigeria and is passionate about the work he does and is willing to work out some arrangement with us. The Nigeria at 50 website, for strategy & for the beginning of the brand we want to represent on the website, should have information like “Nigeria at 50 is partnering with sol90 to launch a Special Commemorative book for Nigeria @50" on behalf of MFA to be launched in London using NHC in London as launch Pad" . This should be like head line news etc. or see statements like " creativity is making the complicated awesomely simple" .Special Promotions can be put on Nigeria at 50 and then filtered to Nigeria@ 50 website so as prevent the clutter of the Nigeria@50 website. e.g. " Do you have originality of thought, expression, and imagination? We will allow you in this section... take shots that capture you and Nigeria through your eyes. The best will be presented on the official website for Nigeria at 50.We can ask for additional information like:YOUR NAME:STATE OF ORIGIN:COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE:PROFESSION:Positive words that reflect Nigeria.(Maybe 2)Then we create Official Page to Communicate with our potential customers and fans by creating and maintaining an official Facebook Page or Community page to Generate support for Nigeria at 50. If it becomes very popular (attracting thousands of fans) it will be adopted and maintained by the Facebook community.We have 4 months to the independence of our Great Nation Nigeria. Nigerians are counting on us.<br />Recommendation from Potential Participant in line with SOL 90 vision <br />Beyond photography I can add more value to the project as I find myself quite passionate about the topic. To make the most of this book it should be nothing less than the timeless look book or go to book about the first 50 years of Nigeria.<br />Arts <br />Architecture <br />Sculpture<br />Paintings<br />Photography<br />Writers<br />Culture<br />Ethnic groups<br />Tribal habits<br />Local food<br />Carnivals<br />Festivals<br />Entertainment<br />Music<br />Movies/films<br />Television/radio<br />Cinema<br />Theatre <br />Fashion and beauty<br />Designers<br />Cosmetics<br />Models<br />Accessories<br />Communication<br />Postal agency<br />Telecommunication<br />Advertising <br />Lifestyle<br />Beaches<br />Resorts<br />Clubs<br />Restaurants<br />Owambe <br /> <br />From the above list we take for an example “music”.....and say in the past 50 years how many music eras have we had and who are the people that have championed the era.........say the post-independence era covering 1960 to 1970......then we take 1970 to 1980..........then 1980 to 1990.........then 1990 to 2000 .........then 2000 to 2005...then 2005 to 2010. Photograph these people-the ones alive of course. <br />We can apply this to every category and with this we can identify which photographs we need to source.<br />FOR BOOK DISTRIBUTION<br />I have had some meetings with DHL and have come this conclusion, there is a discount system in place that could minimize the cost of distribution For example if the book price spend level would be in the region of 100 per week over £4000 which would give us a 71% discount on European Express Saver services and 69% off Worldwide shipments outside of the EU see chart for discount pricing and level of carriage.<br />How and They Work<br />Ok, it’s Monday and we have a 2kg parcel to go to Turkey (Zone 5) standard book price on Worldwide Express Saver Service is £66.30 + fuel surcharge makes it £74.92. This is next day guaranteed. <br />So below we fall into the £51-150 revenue level. If we look where the two meet you see in red you get 35% Discount which also comes off of the fuel surcharge. <br />So our discounted price will be £48.70<br />However we can take advantage of something called - The 1 week rolling average discount structure. <br />Its Tuesday and we have an emergency order for the USA, 10 parcels at 6kg for New York (Zone 6) that need to be there tomorrow by 10.30am  £285.65 + fuel = £322.79 (60kg). The discount structure is based on transport spend only. Fuel Surcharge gets discounted but does not count towards our weekly spend, so this shipment falls into the 151-300 but because we sent the one to Turkey yesterday this gets added for our weekly spend so it is now £66.30 + £285.65 = £351.95, plus the Fuel Surcharge (13% for Express/Worldwide Services) is £397.71. We are now in the £301-£500 spending level so you hit the 51% discount level. <br />So when billed the Turkey shipment will be £36.72, and the NY shipment will be £194.88. <br /> <br />When we add the whole weeks transport costs together we will then know which revenue band we fall into for that week’s shipping. Please follow your finger down the revenue band for the week to see what discount you will get from your chosen service.<br /> <br />Bands of revenue in £0 -51 -151 -301 -501 -1001 -1501 -2001 -4001 -6001 -**MRS @ 3Kg for each Zone 5015030050010001500200040006000AboveDomestic Express0.0%29.0%39.0%44.0%51.0%58.0%62.0%64.0%66.0%69.0%66.0%Trans border Express16.0%35.0%46.0%51.0%57.0%63.0%66.0%68.0%71.0%74.0%71.0%Worldwide Express16.0%35.0%46.0%51.0%57.0%63.0%66.0%67.0%69.0%72.0%69.0%Domestic Express Saver0.0%29.0%39.0%44.0%51.0%58.0%62.0%64.0%66.0%69.0%66.0%Transborder Express Saver16.0%35.0%46.0%51.0%57.0%63.0%66.0%68.0%71.0%74.0%71.0%Worldwide Express Saver16.0%35.0%46.0%51.0%57.0%63.0%66.0%67.0%69.0%72.0%69.0%Domestic Standard Multi Piece Shipment0.0%28.0%43.0%47.0%56.0%59.0%63.0%65.0%67.0%67.0%67.0%Transborder Standard Multi Piece Shipment16.0%35.0%45.0%50.0%55.0%60.0%63.0%65.0%67.0%69.0%67.0%Worldwide Standard Multi Piece Shipment16.0%35.0%45.0%50.0%55.0%60.0%63.0%65.0%67.0%69.0%67.0%Domestic Standard Single Piece Shipment0.0%31.0%46.0%52.0%61.0%69.0%70.0%72.0%73.0%74.0%73.0%Trans border Standard Single Piece Shipment19.0%38.0%48.0%53.0%58.0%63.0%66.0%68.0%70.0%72.0%70.0%Worldwide Standard Single Piece Shipment19.0%38.0%48.0%53.0%58.0%63.0%66.0%68.0%70.0%72.0%70.0%Worldwide Expedited16.0%23.0%29.0%33.0%36.0%43.0%45.0%47.0%49.0%51.0%49.0%<br /> <br />As explained the more we ship, the more we save, so by putting all of your shipments in the same Monday to Friday week through our UPS account will just make the last shipment cheaper as we go along. The easiest way to get a price is to go here and get your price. Using the above formula you can see that by Friday you could be saving the project quite a lot of money. <br />
