Three Shopee Sellers Gear Up for 9.9 Super Shopping Day to Scale their Business

8:00:00 AM

 

The current global situation brought about significant lifestyle changes: more people are working from home, consumers are shopping online for their convenience, and business owners are transitioning to online and e-commerce platforms to stay afloat. Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, shares three sellers who found success online with Shopee and how they are preparing for the much-anticipated 9.9 Super Shopping Day.

Obra Ni Juan: Supporting Employees and their Families



Obra Ni Juan, a local clothing store, halted their operations inside a leading mall when the pandemic hit. They decided to shift to online selling to continue their business, launching their Shopee store last June 2021. Obra Ni Juan started to make their products available to a bigger and wider audience while continuously generating sales even with their physical stores being closed. “Because of Shopee, our employees are able to continue providing for their families despite these trying times.”

They are content with the Shopee Seller experience as Shopee provided them with an assigned Incubation Manager who guides them through the onboarding process and supports them in maximizing the different tools they can use to increase sales and foot traffic. With 9.9 approaching, Obra Ni Juan says, “We are bolstering our stocks for our existing products and we have been continuously preparing new items and designs to offer to our Shopee customers. We will also utilize other Shopee marketing incentives such as free Shopee Ad Credits; which leads to clicks that are converted to actual sales and continue to utilize the available marketing tools to scale our business.”

Cleanstar: Building Customer Loyalty



Cleanstar is a one-stop shop for all dental floss needs that supplies affordable, innovative, and high-quality dental floss pick products. During the early stages of their business, they saw Shopee as an opportunity to extend their reach. “By regularly attending the online webinars organized by Shopee and accessing helpful resources on educational hubs, we managed to set up our Shopee online store. The key is utilizing everything that Shopee offers and to just be consistent in what you are doing.”

Cleanstar leverages Shopee Live and In-App Business Insights the most. “Through Shopee Live, we can discuss our product line to our customers and also educate people regarding oral health which helped us gain more followers. Through In-app Business Insights, we also get to monitor the overall performance and health of our store through data and inform us on which aspects we can improve on, and allows us to reply to customers’ feedback about our products. It’s really humbling to see the growth in our follower numbers, and how they give feedback every time they order.”

With the number of orders they were receiving, Cleanstar eventually decided to hire a team just for fulfilling Shopee orders. This coming 9.9, Cleanstar is preparing its stocks early to fulfill orders without the hassle. They also put up ads on the site to improve the visibility of the products.

Martipaps Gift Shop: Increased Daily Orders


Martipaps Gift Shop started selling on Shopee in 2016. They sell various kinds of toys from building blocks and toy cars to mini kitchen sets and pop-up tent playhouses. In the past, they used to do meet-ups and pick-ups, but it took up too much time. “The time spent on doing meet-ups was transformed by selling on Shopee because of its free shipping and Shopee guarantee. A door-to-door cash-on-delivery service where buyers can feel at ease with their purchase. Martipaps saw an increase in sales as they managed to save time on doing meet-ups to focus on managing their store on Shopee.”

Ever since joining Shopee, her orders grew from one shipment a day to about 100 packages daily. She encourages aspiring entrepreneurs to try being a Shopee seller. “Start small. Start from the things you love, because if you love what you are doing you will never get tired of it. You will look for more exciting things, improvements, and additions to make your shop better. Utilize all the tools that Shopee offers - they are like helping hands that can support us to succeed in the online selling business.”

Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day

The Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day is one of the much-anticipated sales of the year. Aside from cost-saving deals, Filipinos can enjoy added rewards and convenience by going cashless with ShopeePay. It is an all-in-one e-wallet that shoppers can use to Buy Load, Pay Bills, and Scan to Pay at thousands of merchants nationwide. This September 9, users can enjoy exclusive ShopeePay promotions such as up to 50% cashback on bills payment; up to 50% off on mobile load; and ShopeePay ₱1 Deals from Puregold, Seaoil, Potato Corner, and many more.

TAIWAN Advances It's Potential to Further Motivate the Philippines In Information and Communications Technology

6:57:00 PM

TAIWAN, one of the world's competing country with a strong foundation in development and innovations continue to be a better role model for the Philippines in information and communications technology (ICT).  With its status in the global IT supply chain, Taiwan's almost three decades of existence as one of the player, as well as significant partner for many international brands including Apple, google, and Microsoft, earned them a huge success and source of pride in the ICT sector.

Recently, a press conference was held in Marriott Hotel for Taiwan Excellence, where top Taiwanese brands and IoT Business solutions were showcased in the said event.

It was shared that these different companies from Taiwan hold  a significant market shares in semiconductors, PCs, mobile devices, broadband appliances, and display products and technologies. Taiwan is the world’s largest supplier of these products, collectively contributing to over 16% of Taiwan’s total GDP.


With the rise of AI and IoT, Taiwan is shifting from an economy based on high-tech manufacturing, to an economy driven by intellectual property and innovation. Taiwan’s high-tech competitiveness includes top talent, a well-developed industrial chain, and a formidable entrepreneurial spirit. These elements combined enable Taiwan’s ICT industry to leverage today’s trends and pave the way for the technology of the future.

The ‘Taiwan Excellence’ experience, organized by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT) and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), will provide businesses ranging from small to large from the Philippines a platform to offer the latest IoT innovations, directly from leading Taiwanese IoT solutions providers. This is a great opportunity to consider how these solutions can enhance one’s own business offering.

The participating companies in this year’s Asia IoT Business Platform (AIBP) held at the Marriott Hotel, Manila are: Accton Technology Corp., a best practice awardee for manufacturing quality; Apacer Technology Inc., a leading producer of industrial SSDs, digital consumer products, and memory modules; Aver Information, award-winning education and communication innovators; ICP DAS, an industrial automation technology innovator and enhancer; and, IEI Integration Corp., a leading industrial computer provider.


‘Taiwan Excellence’ is confident in the Philippines’ ability to progress in ICT, as indicated by its IT sector’s steady spending.

“We see progress in the Philippines’ ICT sector and Taiwan will be happy to contribute to this growth and help Filipino enterprises further succeed in their operations,” said Wen-Chung Chang, Director of the Economic Division, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in the Philippines.

Taiwan is determined to advocate for innovation, improve employment and income distribution, and to create more balanced regional development, by leveraging the immense momentum of many markets, at present.

According to Swiss-based International Institute for Management Development (IMD), Taiwan moves up to 16th in global competitiveness, a notch higher from the previous year’s ranking. Furthermore, Taiwan has steadily maintained its place as the 4th most competitive economy in Asia as declared in the 2019 IMD World Competitiveness Ranking. With many software and hardware engineers and technological centers and innovation clusters growing organically throughout major Taiwanese cities, Taiwan is on its way to becoming a major startup hub in Asia, and even internationally.


Just how substantial is the potential global economic impact of IoT?

Citing a research report by McKinsey & Company’s Global Institute, ‘Taiwan Excellence’ said the estimate could range to “$3.9 trillion to $11 trillion a year by 2025”. McKinsey has continued a significant expansion In Taiwan with the recently launched regional industrial IoT hub in Taipei, due to its rapid growth in the past 18 months.

Factories could be the strongest driving force behind IoT’s generated value, followed by cities and health.

FWD and Humanity & Inclusion Partnered Together in Helping People with Disabilities in Asia to Find Employment

5:13:00 PM


One of the things that I learned in my previous job is that there should always be equal opportunity to everyone, no matter what is your race, status, or abilities. Everyone must be given a chance to prove that too can do things for the company and for the community.  That is why I am glad when I was given a chance to be part of the event conducted by FWD Life Insurance, the most exciting insurance brand in the country, and Humanity & Inclusion (this is formerly known as Handicap International), an independent international aid organization, which is the celebration of the beginning of Forward Together project. It aims to help young people with disabilities find employment opportunities in the Philippines and beyond.

It is an event created to help media and bloggers (me included)  understand people with disabilities through an interactive visual language activity, and escape room challenge (which unfortunately I wasn't able to join).

Through the regional partnership initially announced by the insurer in the first half of 2018, both organizations will work towards advocating equal opportunities and empowering people with disabilities in Asia. With FWD Group investing USD 1million, the Forward Together project will train at least 380 youth with disabilities in the Philippines and Indonesia and help them secure sustainable employment or business opportunities.


“FWD Life Philippines aims to end the stigma that disability corresponds to inability,” FWD Life Philippines President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Grimes said. “Through our partnership with Humanity & Inclusion, we hope to provide a platform for people with disabilities to showcase their strengths and abilities. We want to encourage everyone to help create a future with a difference for people with disabilities with opportunities to become valuable and equal contributors to the community.”
 



“Developing countries are encouraged to invest in youth, but unfortunately, young people with disabilities are usually overlooked in employment and entrepreneurship opportunities,” said Bryan Andrew Marsalis, Humanity & Inclusion Regional Operation Coordinator. “That is why we are very delighted to have such strong support from FWD Group in our advocacy of improving the lives of youth with disabilities. Through this project, we will work with selected employers – including FWD Group – across the two target countries to improve their capacity to employ youth with disabilities.”

“At FWD, we are committed to promoting social inclusion and active participation of persons with disabilities, and are very excited to kick start our work with Humanity & Inclusion,” said FWD Life Philippines Head of Marketing and Community Care Country Lead Roche Vandenberghe. “With the Forward Together project, we are enabling businesses and organizations such as ours to become catalysts for quality job creation.”

5 Things to Prepare for an Out of Town Conferences

6:20:00 PM

Getting ready and getting excited, perhaps that's what most people feel whenever there's an out of town activity of the company. For Filipino workers, it is always a chance to get out of the office and leave the papers on the desk. Not only that it’s a getaway from our work routine in the office but it is a chance for you to explore, learn, network and enjoy the company of workers in the same industry. No paper works to hunt you for a while, only learning and development, but of course don’t forget the leisure part.

There are things that should be considered when attending an out of town conferences. This will not only keep you organized bu will let you enjoy the benefits of being out of the office. It will also help you in managing your time, resources and schedule. Time should be allotted on this because out of town conferences are not just a ride away from home but sometimes it is a fly away from home. So, if you forgot something it will only ruined opportunity and your fun time afterwards.

To escape the horror of forgetting things for the conferences here are some things to remember in preparing for an out of town conference.

  1. Be sure that you are fully registered in the conference. This will keep you away from the hassle of missing your name on the conference itself. If there are required documents to bring like the print out of the registration, IDs or passport, make sure to prepare and secure them.
  2. Make sure to book your hotel accommodations ahead of time. Prefer hotels that are nearer to the conference venue. Much better if it is within the venue itself but of course if you or your company is trying to cut expenses it would be better to have the average hotels with almost the same amenities and services.
  3. Budget or pocket money is one of the must have and should also be prepared ahead of time. Out of town means expenses. Even though registration fees, accommodations, and some other expenses are shouldered by your company, still, you need to have your own budget to spend for pasalubong and other souvenir gift items. Make sure to save up before the conference date.
  4. Bring the right amount of clothing and appropriate dress for the conference. You don’t have to exhaust yourself in carrying more luggage. Essentials and personals should be considered. For the ladies it’s your privilege.
  5. Gadgets to capture the moment and for your documentation. It is always great to have photos in every conference that you attended, it’s more of a remembering the experience and jotting down the learning.

All these are just suggestions to prepare you for that out of town conference getaway. Just like this coming October 10 to 12, 2018 the People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) will be having its 55th Annual Conference at the ASEAN Convention, Clark Special Economic Zone (CSEZ), Clarkfield, Pampanga. In case you have not registered yet just head on to www.pmap.org.ph and sign up.

ABA Crypto-Currency Introduced in the Philippine Market

11:14:00 PM

We all know that crypto-currencies are making its way in today's economy. As parts of the world are understanding it, the Filipino economic market is in for a spin because of the new player in the crypto-currency business, All By All (ABA). Just a few days ago the company has formally launched its crypto-currency.

During the grand event held February 24 at Cities Events Place at Sgt. Esguerra St., Q.C., You Won Il, President of ALL BY ALL (ABA) Philippines, introduced to members of the press, stakeholders and potential investors his cryptocurrency company, which is basically a monetary exchange platform.
You Won Il enthused: “ABA is the perfect solution for people who are looking for a seamless approach in using cryptocurrencies for their numerous online transactions”.

To start enjoying the convenience provided by ABA, one has to simply visit their website or app, then sign up. Once the form is completed, the user will receive an electronic wallet or account which they can ‘load’ with Philippine pesos. The electronic wallet can, then, be used for cryptocurrency transactions like online trading and commercial purchases, in lieu of credit cards and traditional currencies.

Some of the advantages of using ABA is that it is faster, ensures more secure transactions globally, and has lower fees. ABA is also now preparing for its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) and is also eyeing brisk expansion in other Asian hubs like Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Japan.

Aside from cryptocurrency, ABA will be getting into other businesses like travel and online gaming.

Marvin Agustin Named Young Entrepreneur of the Year

For those fans of Marvin Agustin and of course those who loved the foods on his restaurants, here's something that would make you proud of him. Famed not only in the entertainment industry, now in the food industry as well. Here's the details of him being named as Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

When restaurateur Marvin Agustin was included in the list of the 17 finalists for Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year awards, the actor-turned- entrepreneur never imagined that he will bag one of the five awards during the recently-concluded Awards Banquet held at the Makati Shangrila Hotel.

“I really did not expect that I’d bring home an award,” says Marvin. “I am with such distinguished roster of respected people in the industry, people whom I really look up to, so I really didn’t think that I will bring home an award.”

Marvin admitted that he thought, out of the 14 finalists, only one will be declared winner. This is the reason why Marvin never really expected to win.

Unknown to Marvin, however, a Young Entrepreneur of the Year award will be given and luckily, the actor-entrepreneur got the distinction.

Marvin was joined by his mom during the said ceremonies.

He adds that his mom was more excited than him.

Marvin shared that a night before the banquet his mom, while reading the Bible, was asking for a sign if her son will win the recognition. Then, she chanced on a passage implying that since she has not wished for quite a while, the desires of her heart will be given to her.

So Marvin’s mom Teresa told him that he might win during the day of the event.

“I am really blessed that my mother supports everything that I do and she is super proud of my achievements,” shares Marvin. “She will always be my inspiration.”

Asked to differentiate receiving acting awards from the Young EOY commendation, Marvin quips, “when you win acting awards, it is inspiring because peers approve of your work. But here in the EOY, it is inspiring because of what it symbolizes – the recognition of the hard work you’ve put in to make your employees and their families survive.”

Marvin noted how National Bookstore founder Socorro Ramos approached him and said, “You have a beautiful story. Keep inspiring the youth.”

This recognition, according to Marvin, simply proves that with hard work, dedication, and determination, dreams really do come true.

Marvin was joined by manager and friend Annabelle Regalado-Borja, and business partners Raymund Magdaluyo and Ricky Laudico.
