Writing is not a difficult task for me. The hardest part of the work is how to transform it from a mere manuscript to a book that people are yearning to buy and read. Today, I’d like to appreciate the technical crew that worked behind the scenes for my books. These are people whom I have never met in real life, but they trusted me and provided their professional services in exchange for a low budget.
You already know the first person but let me re-introduce her…
Latifat Abifarin is a freelance creative promotional video maker and astute content writer. She can simplify even the most difficult concepts and convey them using animated explainers, business videos, and written contents to the end users and target audience of businesses, brands, and organizations. She uses these to improve their online presence while increasing sales, brand reach and engagement.

- Article, blog, web content writing
- Proofreading and editing
- Ebook formatting and design
- Book cover design

The next person is no other than my publisher, AbdulWaasi Muddaththir of Infonet Solutions. I got to know him through his comments on my posts and the way he constantly reminded me to keep my blog and Facebook page as active as my personal account.
He volunteered to be my virtual manager without asking for a salary. He managed my Facebook Ads and kept track of the insights and engagements. He was also in charge of the virtual launching of Nature’s Superfood. If you watched the video, you can attest that it was more than the regular Facebook live.
Covid-19 is still out there and we are advised to continue to observe social distancing and avoid unnecessary gatherings. Contact him if you want to take your virtual meetings or classrooms to the next level.
For the book publishing itself, he did a fantastic job. I prefer ebooks generally, but when I saw the book he printed, I loved it so much that I wanted to eat it! The smell of the paper is intoxicating. The printing is crisp and legible. The paper is glossy and water resistant. I got this premium book publishing despite my low budget. If you have always wanted to be an author but the cost of traditional publishing scares you, AbdulWaasi is your goto person.
Finally, I’d like to quickly mention the person who designed my website. His name is Abubakar Oyerogba. I came to know him through his posts on the management of Facebook pages, ads and so on. He is a digital consultant, strategist and trainer. He will break it down to you even if you don’t know anything about the internet. If you want your business to enjoy good visibility on social media and the web generally, you need to contact him ASAP.
