How My Customers Amaze Me

Starting out in July 2014, I was quite nervous about this business. I first found out about these cheaper data plans on Nairaland and like other sellers there, I also started out on Nairaland and tried to build a customer base there.

After my midnight prayer session (he he he 🙂 ), I logged on to Nairaland and posted my data advert. In just about 4 hours I had already started recording sales and positive responses. Very early in the morning! Wow! It seemed so easy. I can’t forget Royal Roy, who soon became a great support and fan. Indeed it was his brother who made one of the first comments on this website, after it was launched.

But a few days down the line I began to have issues with period of validity because I didn’t have enough customers (I won’t explain, if you pay I will tell you :-p ). I decided to launch this website, www.sigma.com.ng, and see how I could drive customers through it.

This is where I got really amazed. People who don’t know me from Adam would find this website, call me and pay. Although sometimes, I would send data first to convince the buyer and wait for him or her to pay. Thankfully, none of the first customers ever duped me. (A few months down the line people started refusing to pay, switching off their lines or finding crazy excuses not to pay. Some deceived me outright.)

I found out that it was safer to trust women than men. I made a mistake one day and sent 1gb to a lady instead of 250mb. She promised to pay me by the weekend, which was about 5 days time. She didn’t pay that weekend though, but she paid after a few weeks. I was elated!!! Considering the fact that she paid the balance of her own accord, even though the mistake was mine.

The same cannot be said of a man who I mistakenly sent 3gb instead of 1gb. I asked him to help me by paying whenever he was able to. He confessed that indeed he would love to use 3gb anyway and would pay at his own time. Till today, over about 3 months now, I am yet to receive payment. About 4 other men have done similar things 🙁 .

But anyway, that is not the point of this post. This post is to express my appreciation for the undeserved favour and amazing trust I have received from the majority of my customers. Thousands of people who don’t know me yet are willing to trust me with their money. And yes, I try my best to give them what they want. To serve them and to count as one more Nigerian who will join those who are ready to give a good name to this nation.

Thanks be to God for the wonders He has done. God bless all those who have supported this venture!

Getting Data Easily

Thank you for your interest in buying cheap data from Sigma. I am overwhelmed by the trust and support of my customers from the very beginning.

If you would like to buy data, please ensure to follow the procedure detailed on the website about buying data.

Be Specific

It is essential to be very specific about what has been done. That is why the format on the data sales page asks for every valuable information that will help me track a payment and send data to the right number.

Always specify the phone number you want to buy data on in the text message you send. Don’t just assume that I should know. Even if it is the same number you send the message with, please specify the phone number for data.

If you make a payment, tell me how much you paid and the number to send data to. Don’t assume I know your name. Just follow the procedure

Delivery Delays

Sometimes you don’t get data within 10 minutes. Here are a few possible scenarios:

  • You paid to the bank account and the money has not reflected. I would always wait until I get your payment.
  • There are other customers ahead of you. I would wait for your turn
  • You didn’t send your request in the format we specified. I will ask you to resend your request in the correct format and wait for you to do so.
  • You sent too many low denomination recharge cards. If you want to buy 1gb and the price is 1400 for instance, you can send a single card of 1500 and I will send back your change to your line. I don’t enjoy loading many low denomination cards.

I hope this article helps.

Thank you for trusting in us.
