FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SELANGOR, 27th Sept 2023 - EasyStore, a leading e-commerce platform dedicated to helping small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) thrive in the digital marketplace, has launched an exciting new initiative aimed at preparing businesses for a successful year-end sale.
This initiative comes in the form of an exclusive workshop that promises to equip SMEs with the skills and strategies needed to make the most of the upcoming holiday season.
What makes this event even more remarkable is the collaboration with two powerhouse partners, Lazada and Dattel.
Supercharging Success with YES 2023!
The year-end sales period holds immense significance for businesses, often housing pivotal campaigns like 9.9, 10.10, 11.11, and 12.12, which can substantially bolster annual revenue.
At EasyStore, we are wholeheartedly dedicated to empowering businesses to efficiently navigate these extensive sales campaigns by imparting actionable and effective strategies.
Our recent workshop has explored various crucial topics essential for year-end sales success. Key insights from our partner, Lazada, included:
Early Engagement in Lazada Mega Campaigns: Ensuring adequate stock availability during major campaigns is pivotal, often necessitating inventory preparation ranging from 7 to 30 times the usual volume.
Dynamic Flash Sales: To captivate attention and drive conversions, offering enticing deals during flash sales can be highly effective, provided profit margins allow.
Optimizing with Lazada Tools: Leveraging Lazada's seller affiliate tools and sponsored ads to secure prime visibility on the platform's first page.
Aim for Level 5 Seller Status: Striving to attain Level 5 seller status unlocks the benefits of Lazada Key Account Managers, offering exclusive brand solutions. This achievement requires diligent effort in advancing through the seller levels.
