Ask me anything about my professional life or about TVP Adventures and TVP Games.
I would like to answer the questions you've been asking and address your new questions. Also, see details about our Proof of Funds and visa application services.
I have missed you. Thanks to everyone who has reached out by e-mail or on Social Media. I’d like to answer some of the questions you’ve been asking me. I would also like to share updates about our work at TVP Adventures and TVP Games. Check out some exciting new products and services that we have on offer.
Why did you leave Twitter? Many of you have noticed that my personal account on Twitter was deactivated almost a year ago. I’ve gotten so many messages asking why I left Twitter and when I will be back. Well, I don’t think I will be back anytime soon (never say never). This does not mean it was easy letting go of an account with almost 70,000 followers and the incredible community I had built on there. I carefully developed an authentic brand that helped people discover the world, gave out free travel information and showed people that if they can dream any experience, it is possible to design it. My personal brand was incredibly helpful to TVP and I was able to leverage it to help our businesses grow. After some time, Twitter was no longer as fun for me as it used to be. It took me a long time to decide to deactivate my account and it was not an easy decision, but I eventually decided to step back Funmi Oyatogun and allow TVP Adventures and TVP Games shine on Twitter. I still host monthly Live Spaces on our official Twitter pages and many of my Twitter friends are part of Show Me One Thing so you can still access me 100%. I also cherish the real life friends I made on Twitter. Please follow TVP Adventures and TVP Games on Instagram and Twitter to stay up to date with all our travel content and updates.
Did you really JUST turn 30? Yes, I turned 30 in March. I got lots of birthday messages from my community and I appreciate them. I don’t know if it is a compliment or shade when people say they didn’t know I was so young. Well, I feel grown and excited for all that’s to come in my 30s. I accounted for every year of my 20s, handed my full account to God (with some lapses here and there sha) and I think He is proud of me. Now, let’s do wonders in this new decade.
Do you offer Proof of Funds services? Yes!!! Guess what? After 6 years of getting this question, I am proud to say that we now have Proof of Funds services for our community. We have the best rates on the market (between 2.5% and 3.5%) and we have our reputation for excellence backing us up. If you’ve done some research, you know that other POF services offer much higher rates. If you are travelling for school, immigration, or whatever else, and you need Proof of Funds, e-mail me directly at email@example.com and we will get you sorted. We have limited funds for this and some of the funds have already been claimed by our community so reach out quickly.
Can TVP help me with my visa application, immigration plans or japa goals? We can. In fact, because our goal is global discovery, we understand that some people want to give themselves long-term options abroad. We know these services can be complicated and maybe even unattainable sometimes. So, we can help you with your visa applications or help provide information about which countries are best for you and your family.
I want to pay for SEVIS fee, IHS fee or school fees abroad. Can you help me. Yes! We know that Form A is very tough to get now and many of you have school fees payments to make. Luckily, we have legally registered bank accounts abroad that allow us make payments for you in foreign currencies. You can pay us in Naira and we make payments on your behalf. We can help you pay your SEVIS fee, IHS fee, school fees or any other payment that’s proving to be a difficulty because of Nigeria’s restrictions.
Tell me all your products and services one more time. Okay, here’s a full list:
Trips, tours and travel packages - we design custom travel experiences to ANYWHERE in Africa and the world. Whether you want to celebrate your honeymoon in The Maldives or you want to go for your birthday in Dubai or Mauritius, we can take you there. We even design corporate retreat experiences for companies within and outside the country.
Games and toys - you don’t have to get on a plane to start discovering the world. Our games company - TVP Games - designs games for adults and toys for kids to help you discover the world while playing and laughing. We have three games that we have launched and many more coming. You can order any of them in the UK, Nigeria, US and Canada on our website or via our Social Media DMs.
Fill in the Black - a hilarious guessing game that celebrates blackness.
Fill in the Map - a colorful large map of Africa puzzle for kids and families.
Fanboree - a hilarious card game for football fans.
Credibility and trust - how is this a service, you ask? Well, it is a service because it matters to us. We always deliver on excellence and we treat you like you mean the world to us. When the pandemic hit, we should have been devastated but instead, we paid back all our customer’s bookings, took the loss of airlines that never paid back, and kept the trust of our faithful community. Today, we have a 5-star rating on Google Reviews because people know that if we can remain faithful when there is a good excuse like the pandemic, we will always be faithful. That’s our word.
Visas, immigration services and payment services: I discussed this at the beginning of the newsletter.
Also, fun fact: we offer consultation services for brands who would like to improve their destination marketing or expand their travel and hospitality services. We’ve worked with Air Namibia, Rwanda Development Board, Zimbabwe Tourism Board, Xiaomi, and many more. Our work has been featured on CNN, BBC and more. Most recently, I was honored to have worked with Dusit International - a major luxury hotel chain out of Thailand that has resorts in more than 12 countries. I was on the team of consultants that developed their Post-COVID 19 recovery and expansion strategy. It is still one of my proudest work yet and I look forward to working with more brands and businesses that align with my interests and expertise.
In summary, hire me to consult for you.
Ok, I think that’s enough for now. Did I miss something? Please, ask me ANYTHING either by email or as a comment and I will address it.
Before you go, please share this newsletter with other curious minds. There’s something pretty cool to discover (almost) every week!
