Haven’t started selling online because you find it complicated to handle? Here are reasons why selling on Snapdeal is way easier than selling offline:
No Expenditure on Setting up Shop: When you're opening a conventional brick and mortar store, a painfully long list of expenses crops up. It comprises expenses of renting/buying land, interior decoration, electricity and miscellaneous costs. Unavoidable and exorbitant as these expenses are when you have a brick-and-mortar store, selling on Snapdeal means that such expenses become void. In the absence of a registration or listing fee, you can actually start your business at a zero set-up cost!
Wider Customer Reach: Only occasionally would a potential customer go beyond a few miles to visit a particular store, even if the brand is a personal favorite of that customer. On the other hand, Snapdeal offers a much larger geographical reach for sellers to showcase their products. Since the Snapdeal website can be accessed from anywhere in India, the customer base is automatically broadened to include countless delivery areas spanning 3000+ cities and towns.
Open for Business 24x7: Very rarely do brick and mortar stores stay open 24x7 and even if they do, it involves more expenditure and insufficient footfall that doesn’t make up for the expenses incurred. It's unheard-of for a customer to step out of his house at midnight just to buy a jacket. Snapdeal doesn’t shut shop which implies customers can conveniently browse for hours, be it in on their way back home or during a boring marathon meeting at work, thus getting 24x7 access to your product range, without ever having to step out of their comfort zone.
Work from Anywhere: Businessmen often spend at least 10 to 12 hours a day and 7 days a week 'behind the counter' to maintain profit levels. So when do you get to go on a relaxing vacation with your family or take a breather from the 24x7 behind-the-counter routine? Through Snapdeal’s Seller Panel and Seller Zone Mobile App, you can keep a tab on your online business from anywhere. Instead of staying stuck at your brick and mortar store, you can manage your Snapdeal online shop through your laptop or smartphone, anywhere in the world. With Snapdeal, you get to keep track of things, whenever and wherever you want to.
Visual Merchandising: Deciding how to present products in-store is a major task, and has been proven to have a considerable impact on how customers make buying decisions. However, once you’re on-board on Snapdeal as a seller, you can forget about the hassles of visual merchandizing. All you need are product shots to upload on the e-commerce portal. . If you’re unsure of how to photograph your product collection so as to retain its uniqueness in the photos, Snapdeal connects you with trained photographers. They ensure that you adhere to cataloguing guidelines and give you professional product shots according to your budget.
Product Diversification: Since a lot of the logistical problems are taken care of by Snapdeal and the expenditure on selling gets reduced, as a business owner you can instead invest time and resources on developing your products and offering your potential customers a more diverse range to choose from. Wider the variety of your product portfolio, the wider your potential customer base, which in turn leads to more buyers and of course, more profit.
