After four months of having an online store I now realize how much a challenge it is to do this. It’s practically a one-man show with me doing the site updates, marketing online on ad sites and social media sites, taking orders, answering queries, scheduling deliveries, and checking the items before delivery. But as hard as this would be I have no reason to complain because the real heroes are the furniture makers who make the furniture with their bare hands (for custom made orders) and the delivery boys who brave the Manila heat and traffic riding in our non-airconditioned trucks to make sure the items reach their destinations. Whenever I feel overwhelmed about everything I just think of these hardworking men and strive to be better with my more “cozy” job.
Anyway, it’s been a struggle from the start but I’m glad we’re featuring more and more products everyday therefore giving our customers more to choose from. We aren’t selling premier mounts and home accessories just yet but who knows we will even sell that in the future? As long as customers don’t get tired of patronizing our store we will never get tired of giving them affordable furniture that gives more value for their money.
