Me in online business..

ramai orang bertanya kenapa i venture into online business. to tell you the truth, i started doing online business way back then in 2007, masa tu online business bukan IN thing lagi.. i started with selling items that i bought during the warehouse sale and sold it back at a higher price but still much cheaper from the market price. and yes, it was a good market back then.

thereafter, i stumbled with the idea to sell online maternity clothes and Alhamdulillah, once again it was a good market and in fact, one of the famous English newspapers called me up for an interview, but unfortunately i declined as i was about to slow down on this business.. why??

first of all, it was not easy to handle customers, despite how many info I have placed on the website, still, the common questions that i received was "kalau orang size xx, tinggi lebih kurang x cm muat tak baju ni.." or after we took sometime to entertain them suddenly they decided not to buy.. hmmpph.. or kes-kes nak pulangkan baju.. 

ok, that was not the main issue.. memang hak pengguna pun kan nak tahu.. 

the main issue was when my mum brought up this conversation. I agreed that some of my maternity clothes adalah tidak mematuhi syarak hukum agama.. and honestly, the way i dressed up pun belum lagi apa yang agama kita mahu (insyaAllah.. satu hari nanti).. so mama kata, kenapa i nak memanjangkan dosa dosa I..

absolutely true.. of cos i can always sell baju baju yang tutup semua.. mana tahu my next project.. but not anytime sooner.. 

I moved on trying to concentrate on my Am*way.. but again and again.. it was not an easy market.. online Internet marketing is strictly prohibited and against the policy of the Company and I myself experienced receiving a love letter from them asking me to stop online marketing.. somehow, i still found a bit weird especially when other competitors has embarked and concentrate on online marketing. I understand that this year they have put extra initiatives by inviting few famous bloggers to review on Protein Powder (honestly, i love Nutrilite Protein Powder to the max) but you know it totally a different experience between you pay them to review your products vs people who actually used that products.. i think real testimonial is more convincing.. 

but anyway, i am still the distributor, memang gune tetiap hari pun.. and i do have the customers, but most of them are my returning customers.. 

- semalam punya order , Alhamdulillah--

and so.. let put aside my Amway stories.. :)

so, after few year sitting in front of the laptops, updating my blogs, stalking to someone's blogs, facebook, twitter and now instagram.. i think i should make money out from it.. 

i mean seriously..

but first thing first, i need to maintain and keep the momentum all the way for online business. 

as for now.. my first project is

Saya adalah stokis di Kuala Lumpur untuk CocoDamia

I have few projects coming in.. insyaAllah..and i am so excited about it.. after all i love online marketing.. 

but above all, i have this one wild online idea in my mind that I have kept it so very long.. susahnya nak execute sebab tak tau sape boleh tolong :)

oh not to forget, my project with Zety.. tapi zety ni macam susah je kan hahaha (kalau malas tu macam-macam alasan)..

hi mira
its good for you to start it online. and im quite shocked to learn about the a*way not letting u do it online. why not? if it can get bigger audience, more customer, free marketing, why not kan?
and in fact, as for me, when i do it online, the time u took to "open your shop" only 2 hrs per day. with the right product, right time, right technique, im sure anyone can be successful.
Wishing you all the best mira!
