Insight #2: Invest in a unified commerce platform to centralize, streamline and optimize your business process
One of EasyStore’s star merchant panelist, Wawar shared her entrepreneurial journey and the key strategies that have propelled her business to great heights.She told the audience, “In my first year of business, I truly struggled to grow mainly due to not having a streamlined business process. My team had to manually take orders via DM and it was a nightmare managing the orders from different sales channels separately- and we only had 3 at the time!”
She shared that the decision to invest in EasyStore’s unified commerce platform in her second year of business, was a game-changer that contributed to growing her business revenue 12x in less than a year. By having all her orders, inventory, fulfillment and customers managed from a single platform, Wawar says that now she has the ability to focus on other aspects of her business such as marketing, production and growing new sales channels.
Her future business growth strategies includes opening up a studio gallery to showcase her products for walk-in customers- a request by her customers that has seen an increase recently, as well as expanding into Live Commerce. Her insights left the audience inspired and equipped with valuable knowledge to implement in their own ventures.
Insight #3: Consumers are demanding for the convenience of purchasing online and the ability to physically engage with brands.
Nadia Amir, Partnerships Manager of EasyStore shed light on the current business landscape and shared essential tools for achieving sustainable growth.
The pandemic has accelerated digitalisation and need to make online purchases, but studies show that in the post-pandemic era, consumers are wanting to go out more and be able to purchase physically as well. In order for businesses to grow, they need to adapt to the new consumer behavior and create a seamless online and offline experience for their customers.
This could be achieved through opening up pop-up stores, participating in physical bazaars or even expanding into your own retail outlet- or multiple. Businesses can achieve this growth more easily and more manageable by using EasyStore’s modern retail solutions that combine both cloud-based POS with multiple online sales channels, converging both online and retail sales and orders, into one centralized system.
Insight #4: Implement tools and features that can trigger repeated purchases to increase your customer lifetime value
With the rise of customer acquisition cost and the demand for a seamless online and offline shopping experience, businesses need to implement tools and features to increase their customer lifetime value.
Tools such as having a unified loyalty program allows customers to collect and redeem points and vouchers both online and in-store, businesses can foster customer loyalty and encourage customers to come back more. As customers continue to make repeat purchases, their lifetime value increases exponentially, generating consistent revenue streams and establishing long-term relationships between the brand and the business. In essence, leveraging tools and features to drive repeated purchases is a powerful strategy for businesses to boost profitability and secure a loyal customer base for sustained success.
Insight #5: Leverage on data analytics to make more informed business decisions
The abundance of data available today provides valuable insights that can drive strategic and operational improvements across various facets of a business. EasyStore’s customer data analytics and customer relationship management features allows businesses to segment their customer base based on various criterias such as demographics, purchase history, and purchase channel preference.
