Online shopping — may it be through websites or Facebook Live selling, is now more popular than ever. It’s not surprising because where else would we be browsing for our needs when majority are still cooped up inside their homes? Businesses are starting to ride the livestreaming wave to let their brands tap in to the bigger pool of customers online and engage them more intimately beyond the brick-and-mortar stores.
To help boost the reach of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and assist them to sell more, Globe Business recently launched Digistore, a livestream via Globe Business’ Facebook page on July 9, 7:00 PM. The Saludo SMEs Digistore Live Selling Event will showcase a wide array of selected products—from brewed coffee and teas to organic baby products, salsas and hot sauces with a twist to curated furniture—by Globe Business clients and merchants from partner organizations such as the Anvil Business Club, DTI Negosyo Center, Entrepreneur’s Organization, and Let’s Eat Pare.
Shoppers participating in the livestream event stand to get exclusive promos and discounts from the featured SMEs and can expect convenient and safe transactions as all participating businesses have GCash accounts.
However, I highly encourage everyone to also continue supporting MSMEs even beyond the said livestream. You can check out food and other items that you need via the respective sellers’ online pages. Here’s a list of some of the participating merchants that you can check out:
HTP Clothing, which started as an Instagram shop, seeks to be a timeless fashion brand that can withstand decades of trends. If you look at their collections, you’ll see what they mean by that! Each piece is versatile and can surely be worn no matter what the trend is. HTP is a Filipino-owned business and their products are also Filipino-made. I’ll share actual photos of the products I bought from them soon!
