The internet opened up a whole lot of opportunities for everyone. It connected us to people even if they are oceans away…and it provided us a chance to make work global. I am very thankful for this because I am one of many mompreneurs whose business is operational and successful because of the internet. For five years, I have been working with clients abroad without having to leave the country (not even our house!)–all I need is a laptop and an internet connection. Imagine that!
If you are you a mom (or dad–or anyone) seeking to earn stable income from home, know that there are so many opportunities you can explore; all you need is to know where you are good at and what interests you most. I am a very organized person and have background in destination marketing and social media management from when I worked in London. This is why I focused on a business where I can use my experience in dealing with foreign clients–virtual support for businesses abroad, mostly those located in the UK, US, Canada, and Australia.
If you are good in creating products, then you might want to go into online selling. How exactly can you start a business that sells products online? Most online sellers turn to social media to sell their products. Most of them use Facebook or Instagram. But what if there is a safer marketplace for sellers, merchants, and buyers? Lamido Philippines offers just that. Through the platform, users can buy and sell online without fear of getting duped.
To be honest, I don’t usually shop online unless 1) I know the seller personally, or 2) the online shopping website has a good reputation. So when I go online to shop, I don’t usually look for sellers on Facebook or Instagram because I’m scared of getting scammed (this happened twice already and I don’t want to go through the stress again). Instead, I look for trusted websites that sell the products I am looking for.
What I love shopping for…items for the home!
It really helps that there are now platforms like Lamido. If you’re not so keen on paying in advance through bank deposit, you can always use the Cash-On-Delivery option. This is a HUGE deal for me because when I order, I am assured that my payment won’t get lost in the system because I’ll hand the money over only after I receive my order.
This is great for online sellers, too, because they can reach more prospective buyers and assure their customers of the delivery of items. So whether you are thinking of starting an online selling business or just looking for a website where you can shop online, go check out Lamido Philippines! Download their app (available on Google Play), too, so you can shop anywhere, anytime.
