Forget using conventional methods of selling and join global selling movement that has begun.
This is where the online selling comes in. It reduces your costs to bare minimums, and spreads news of product promotions and sales faster than you can say “really?”
The second argument would be about competitors in the online market. Big giants like Amazon and Walmart are already in the online market; see the opportunity to reel in easy money. And if you’re reading this, so have you. Your competitive advantage is your product itself and that you can market yourself like viral at a very low cost. That means, you can sell products even if you’re on a low budget or on a substantial one. Marketing and promotions begin right where the consumers are.
So let’s embrace Facebook, Google+, Youtube and any social media that have shown us where the consumers are. You now have an unparalleled reach to consumers at a reduced cost for your paid marketing! Data mining can help here, enabling you to start polls and analyse trends of your product. Make sure you price your product or service Right. Once that is done, go ahead and start your promotions. Tip: make sure you are internally integrated with the product features and details so that the integration shows externally to the consumers. Make them fall in love with your product, buy it and tell it to their friends!
Buyers will start asking about your product and demanding quick, efficient delivery. That can be done through courier services, or through other methods opted for. The payment methods can be cash on delivery, through your credit card or debit card (PayPal, VISA, Mastercard etc) or through the marketplace’s own payment system (may vary).
Making prompt deliveries of your quality products and offering a quick, satisfactory service will allow you to grow as a seller and become a pro. Compliance with company policies and terms will help build your trust with the marketplace. Kaymu.pk is one such example of an online marketplace in Pakistan.
Making money just got easier. Look forward to hearing the clink of coins and the feeling of crisp currency notes.
Let's make profits!
