About

EBizplan.net is not only ABOUT US, it is mostly ABOUT YOU.

The history of EBizplan.net

EBizplan.net is the result of the consolidation of two websites. The two sites were www.ebizplan.co.za and www.bricks2clicks.co.za. First, eBizplan.co.za an online management consultancy was established in 2012. It was targeted at the South African audience and its core business was drafting business plans for paying customers.

Then Bricks2Clicks.co.za followed in 2014. Bricks2Clicks targeted a wider audience and produced content about the retail industry, focussing on retailers adding the online channel to their physical business (from bricks to clicks). The goal with Bricks2Clicks was to establish web presence and brand building.

However, I’d decided this year, 2018, that the two sites should become one – hence EBizplan.net. It was done to consolidate the content and resources of my company.

Although this page is ABOUT US, (and this site ABOUT YOU), it is for now ABOUT ME.
