Currently I am facing the following challenges:
1. There many scamming cases in Zambia, and people have very skeptical whenever they hear anything to do with online business. This has really made it difficult to bring vendors on the website.
2. Business owners seem not to understand the importance of taking their businesses online, and they are very reluctant to be register as sellers on the planform.
3. The use of mobile money services has resulted into businesses recruiting remote customers, by creating WhatsApp groups. The customers send money via these mobile money services, and businesses, in turn, send the goods to the customers. As a result, these potential clients seem not to see the need for them to open online stores.
Actions I’ve taken so far
I am putting together a promotion campaign plan, where I will be giving away smart phones and cash to winners, among the buyers. The more a person buys through the platform the more he or she will stand the chance of winning a mobile phone or cash. Of course, the winners will only be announced after profits from the promotion exceeds the the expected expenses . Other words, we will use the profit to buy mobile phones and pay cash to the luck winners.
My future goals
My goal is to have thousands of sellers and millions of buyers on the platform. This is very possible, especially with the help of mentors who are found on this platform.
My motivations to work with a mentor
I have come to understand that I lack business management and marketing skills, and I am very confident that my mentors to be will play critical role in my success.
