Words By Mouth

Its the best means of marketing...ever...

Seperti yang sesetengah kawan aku tau...aku sekarang dalam usaha untuk mencari duit lebih...owh tidak...aku tidak termasuk dalam golongan login fesbuk dapat seratus...m*Lm dan sewaktu dengannya...aku just buat apa yang orang lain buat itu...iaitu...trying to find things that is cheaper in the states but mahal nak mamposss di negaraku ini...

Alhamdulillah...so far so good...sebenarnya aku tak promote camna pon...aku takder ler nak mengetag orang just to see the latest collection or not...i just post certain items in my fesbuk...and just tag the respective person who DOES want me to tag them to the items that i have in store...thats it...

And of course la...the word goes around and i have more people demanding for more...but as i had mentioned in my past entry...kitorang tak beli items and then sell them...we collect orders, along with the budget and try to find them within the budget price...or we quote the price that we think is reasonable enough...then we goes on to purchase the respective item on behalf of the person who require it...bukan la beli something that unrequired pastu just try to sell it off...it might work with a broader based of people...but i try to keep it in low volume and just to try to make it as another means to add in to the income not as the main side income...but from time to time...my sis do bought some stuffs that we feel would have demand with reasonable and appropriate price...

But recently aku dapat request from several people (who are not in my list) what i have in store...erkkk...cam heran gak camna diorang tau...and yeah...it is the words by mouth...some satisfied customer seems to enticed another potential ones...for instance, i had 'helped' a person to bought a white relic bag...and turns out another 2 person who noticed the bag ask the respective person where she got it...and she asked them to ask me...and that is how a good foundation of business started...with a loyal customer introducing to the potential buyers...

And kitorang tak paksa...as i mentioned...we just 'helped' respective people to buy their respective items at a slightly cheaper price...thats it...kalau diorang ada kawan kat states or europe, i would simply ask them to ask their friends for help to find those items...but the difference is...would their friends be willing to do just that? or do they really know where to find the best rate? some of them does...but some of them would diss off saying that they dont have the time nor the will to find it...

My sis had been residing in the states for almost 10 years now...and i think the genes do runs among the siblings...we love those expensive items but we managed to purchase them at a cheaper price...fair enough rite...

All in all...i really feel good that we managed to make this work...the margin is not that much...seriously...no joking...as i do cross-checked with other blogs...and even many of my customers do feel that we had offered a good bargain...as for me...this is not my main means of income...it just something that i feel compelled to do in order just to add in some funds to the family...and my sister feels just the same...if this goes well as it is now...i think that seattle 2011 seems brighter now...hehehe...hadi...aper lagi...kumpui duit ya...nanti kita g ke hard rock seattle...yeee haaa...
