From promoter to business owner
Around half year ago, I received an inquiry from someone named Leo Pui Lee. She is around 30~33 years old only. She told me that she was interested in online business and she plans to start selling online using our platform but do not have any online selling experience.
It's cool, I like the people who are brave enough to try new things in their life. Ms. Leo was working full-time as a jewelry promoter. But this time, she would like to change her routine work as a promoter to a business owner. That’s great!
At the very beginning stage, there was only an idea in her mind.
But how to take the first step? Especially when she has nothing and starting from zero at that moment. Sounds scary. However, Ms. Leo listed down some situations as below and try to find what she can do. http://www.lovelyakachan.com/
Ms. Leo's situation
- No product & product photo
- No design skills
- No IT skills and knowledge
- No time
- Keep cost as low as possible.
But she solved her problem in these way...
Fortunately, Ms. Leo was very smart to source the product from Taiwan. How did she do it? Firstly, she was very confident about the quality of products that are made in Taiwan, So if distribute this kind of baby products in Malaysia, it may meet some needs of mommies.
Secondly, the supplier in Taiwan already has prepared all the product photos for their distributors. So she didn’t need to shoot the product photo herself. It really saved a ton of work. (You may be curious on how she sourced the product? Read this blog: Product sourcing tips for new sellers to get some new idea)
In the second stage, Ms. Leo faced another problem, which was choosing where to sell her products. She needed to find out which selling platform can actually solve all her problems which are no need design skills, IT skills, and low cost. (Read previous blog: Choosing your selling platform smartly as new seller.)
That's when Ms. Leo came knocking on my door.
To be honest, she has chosen the right platform.
EasyStore helped her to start an online store account, all the storefront design was done by using the built-in template and didn’t need extra design efforts. The setting up of payment option and shipping option were all done with just a few clicks only. Even order processing is simplified. What Ms. Leo needed to do was just focus on growing her business. Oops, forget to mention that her cost to start her online business is only RM69 a month. (More info about the RM69 pricing package, please visit here) http://www.lovelyakachan.com/ Make impossible to possible, she did it!
Everything sounds like impossible but it actually happened a few months ago to a woman. I am very proud of Ms. Leo to make a difference in her life. During the day, she works as a normal full-time employee in a jewelry shop. But still manage to do some marketing activities to drive more traffic to her online store and make more sales! She saves time and money and put fewer efforts to make something happen. For sure the journey never ends and every business needs to put efforts to keep it growing. But never let many concerns stop you from starting something that matters. Go try it out yourself! (Sign up for a 14 day FREE trial)
