After spending a couple of months revamping their website, Mybigorder made a piece of exciting news on Friday morning that they are opening up a new supermarket plus a wholesale and online shop in Nairobi.
The news comes a day after the Oracom Group conducted a free training on E-commerce and county marketplaces. The training was to enlighten people on how they can use the eCommerce platform to harness their business growth. And to people looking for opportunities, the program was to educate them on how they can make money through referrals or what is called affiliate marketing, recruiting vendors and selling products online, and making money through commission.
The main ambition of Mybigorder is to promote local brands and give them an excellent online presence. You can imagine if someone is to start an eCommerce or online, they must look for a web designer, pay for yearly domains and maintenance.
They also need to pay or hire a graphic designer to provide creative designs that help in marketing initiatives. That is not enough; they will also spend a lot of time recruiting the delivery team. All these operations make it even harder for small brands to think of taking their businesses online.
Mybigorder takes up all the responsibilities and gives small brands a viable environment to take their products online without necessarily breaking their accounts. Entrepreneurs need to list their products on the Mybigorder eCommerce platform and leave other operations for them. Mybigorder does different group marketplaces together and makes it easy for customers to make their purchases from people around them.
It links marketplaces together, and customers can make their purchases from wherever they are effortless. The opening up of a new shop will speed up the growth of Mybigorder since they now have two supermarkets owned by them. They always say, “If you want to lead, start with showing examples that you can become the best leader.” Mybigorder is showing its examples of leading in the online shopping environment.
