Two weeks have already passed since the end of the 2017 Rand Show and while the expo was a great success for some, it turned out to be a bit of a let-down for others. But, regardless of how it went for you, the crowds have cleared and now it’s back to business as usual. The question is, where do you go from here? How do you convert the passer-by’s and window shoppers from your events to actual paying customers?
The answer is advertising and making sure that potential customers can easily find your business whenever and wherever they choose to look for it! In today’s world that means online, as a whopping 72% of customers search for products or services online, before making a purchase. With that in mind, as a modern business owner you honestly cannot afford to not have an online presence, because once an event is over, and visitors have forgotten your company name and lost your flyer or business card in the back of their drawer, they will turn to the internet to try and find you again. When that time comes, whether it’s on social media, your website or a business directory, you want them to be able to find you as easily as possible.
This is where StoreStash.com could help you!
We understand how hard it can be to run and market a business. That’s why we created StoreStash.com, a free online market place that hosts the web pages and online stores of local South African shops, service providers and charities. By joining StoreStash you can get a free business page and online store on which you can showcase and even sell your products or services online. StoreStash also serves as a hub for over 2500 customers to shop and bookmark their favourite businesses. This means that customers visit our site searching for all sorts of products and services, and yours could be one of them. Our fast growing user base and extensive business tools also make us one of the best places to list your business, and get some extra exposure in the online market.
How it works:
Creating a page or online store for your business is free! You can even set it up yourself from a mobile device. This means that you can list your products or services on StoreStash.com and shoppers can purchase them directly on the site via credit card, or EFT, without the hassle of having an expensive website designed, or getting a merchant account with your bank. If you already have a website, you could easily link it to your StoreStash page and vice versa, making it easier for visitors to find you from both.
