A few years ago, running your own retail brand was a chore! However, with the evolution of technology, different apps have been introduced to make life simpler for everyone, especially retail business owners. Here are five must-have retailing apps in 2019.


 Used by a number of retailers in Nigeria, the Prognostore software allows you to conduct business wherever you may be. PrognoStore is a POS and inventory management software built by small business owners for small businesses. It is a 3-in-1 Cloud-Based Solution combining Point-of-Sale, Inventory and Analytics developed to make running your business stress-free. Inventory management is hugely important in a retail business but it can be difficult and time-consuming. That’s why devising an inventory management process that works for you is so critical to the success of your business. If you are looking for easy to launch, easy to use and easy to access, then Prognostore is what you need. You can try it out with the 14-day free trial, and see the difference that accurate and efficient inventory management software can make for your business.

 2. Instagram

Instagram is no longer just a social media platform for interacting with people, it has evolved into a business hub where small businesses can increase their reach. If you are a business owner and you haven’t opened an Instagram account for your business, you just might be sleeping on a moving bicycle. Although you shouldn’t be solely dependent on Instagram, take advantage of the platform now that it’s in trend. It’s easy to use, it’s fun and it’s where your customers socialize.

3. MailChimp

Whether your email marketing campaign is in full swing, or it’s just a glimmer of a task on the back burner, MailChimp is one of our favorite (and most user-friendly) apps we recommend. With MailChimp, you can collect email address, create campaigns, send newsletters and gain additional customers. What we love best — the ability to integrate your POS software with MailChimp. It’s also free for up to 12,000 emails. This is the perfect app to complement your email marketing efforts.

4. SurveyMonkey

Feedback is very important for a retail business. The needs of your customers evolve with time and the prevailing social circumstances hence it’s necessary to find out how you can serve them better.  Knowing what your customers want enables you to take that information and turn it into actionable tasks to help drive the business forward.

5. Invoice2go

Invoice2go has been the leading mobile invoicing app for the past two years, and for good reasons: it gives businesses a fast, easy way to create invoices, estimates, credit memos, purchase orders, and more. Documents can be customized to fit your needs, and you can send them to customers and suppliers instantly from the app. Invoice2go also comes with over 10 reports and charts, allowing you to easily make sense of your business’s finances. If you have a store and you prefer hard copies, you can connect to your printer and print. It makes invoicing fun!

One bonus app:

6. Canva

If you are a small business owner looking to step up your marketing game, Canva is a must have. With Canva, you can create beautiful images such as quotes, business cards, postcards, event tickets, and many others.

I was not sure if love spell could help but here is my story: I have been in a relationship with my then ex (we broke up for 3 months) since 2015. It was a happy and very active relationship with lots of fun and travelling. We love each other endlessly and we shared a lot. His family was my family and my family his. Few months back he started being controlling and possessive: I told him that I don’t feel comfortable with his new behavior, he apologized and promised to work on himself. But he failed on his promises, this time it escalated to him being manipulative. He accuses me of cheating on him at work. Eventually, I’ll be the one apologizing for something I didn’t do. I broke up when I couldn’t take it any longer. I got a stranger email address from a website that changed my story: I asked the stranger for help to fix my relationship, I told him that my problem was that I am still in love with this guy and I know he loves me too but he has a huge ego, his ego is enormous. I know I am the one who did the breaking up but my heart was hoping for him to say to me ‘I’m sorry baby, I apologize for how I have made you feel these past years, I will seek help and fix myself so that we can fix us’ The stranger is Dr. Wakina, his email; Dr. Wakina showered his healing powers to us through his powerful love spell. Our relationship was fixed as he provided the much-needed help to us. Our destiny was changed for good.
