I will never miss a sale again

Aside from being a blogger, I’m also an online seller at Multiply, in fact, I’m enjoying this sideline for 2 years now. I get to do things I love which is to shop and do crafts like beading. Earning from it is just an added bonus as well as gaining friends along the way. Maintaining an online shop is quite a task, I have to check everyday for inquiries, post blogs and ads about new products, update my clients for the status of their orders, checking if they have received the items in good condition, etc… Aside from the online inquiries, I also get inquiries and orders thru text messages even in the wee hours of the morning. That’s the beauty of online shopping, you can shop 24/7 at the convenience of your own home and with only just a few clicks.

So how can the buyers inform me with their orders? Well, it’s with the use of Online Order Forms that makes things easier. There are free HTML generators out there such as Wufoo.com or Freedback.com which I currently use that automatically sends an order form to my email address whenever a buyer submits one. The Order Forms I receive looks like the photo below:

My uber cute business card and product tags

If you’re a blogger or a shop owner who wants to market your site, then you already know that giving out business cards is one great way to increase exposure with your site. Your card’s design can also make or break a possible visitor at your site or a possible buyer from your online shop. So having a well-designed business card and product tag is a must. If you’re giving out a rather dull and boring plain-text business card, chances are people might just forget about it or worse, throw them away. Now, if you’re card are cute and colorful, people have a tendency to keep it and therefore, they can have a recall of your blog or shop site.

Have you ever visited a candy store and felt so much joy just looking at the colorful candies? That’s how you’ll feel when visiting Sugarprints’ Multiply site. I first ordered product tags for my online shop from Ethel, next are stickers, then business cards for my blog. Come to think of it, sometimes I’m only trying to make an excuse to have another round of orders just so I can have my dose of cute stickers.

On online shopping and unknown callers

Ever since I started my online shop, Pink Fortune, I get to receive text messages from unknown numbers of prospective buyers. Naturally, I gladly entertained all their inquiries for me to have a successful transaction with them. Online shopping in the Philippines is still at an early stage because a lot of people are still hesitant to use their credit cards online and are still not comfortable of having to wait for their items to be delivered via courier. Albeit the comfort online shopping brings, a lot of consumers prefer to shop in the malls or have them delivered via COD. Some marketing strategies can be sometimes annoying too like calling you and offering you to buy their items. A friend tried to report telemarketers once to PLDT but to no avail. Another reason that hinders online shopping in the Philippines to soar is due to scammers. I need not elaborate on those sellers in Multiply who turned out to be scammers because it’s been happening for years now. As a seller, I have my fair share of scammers online. Yes, even online sellers can be scammed and harrassed.
