On this era of huge access to internet globally we have several options available for accessing vast goods and services through different websites. There are numerous websites with different types and kinds of offering and many of us or it is better to say most of us rely on those sites for getting things done more easily and with availability of vast options of comparison. This is however a viewpoint of a buyer or customer who wanted purchases something. I being a buyer visit several sites every next day to check what new things am available or what special thing I can order from a particular site starting from the international made to locally produced items. I purchase many food items or raw material online given to my closeness to cooking. You may ask why suddenly I am giving a brief introduction to the online shopping medium while we all are aware about sites those are working well in the market. To answer this, I am going to share details of a site ezebee.com which is an online market place I found really interesting or to be precise, I am going to share my review of ezebee.com.
Ezebee.com is an free online market place where sellers can open their own website to sell their own products which can be the local made too through the free online shop! It is free to open a place through ezebee.com to sell the products and in return you don’t need to pay any commission to them. In a way it is a way to link the sellers with the buyers and the seller can be anybody from a rural farmer or artisan to a local fashion designer or local pastry chef. This place is ideal for the entrepreneur to start their small business with almost no cost. A person does not need any extra skill to register himself / herself and to open their marketplace; it is as easy as opening a profile in a social networking site with very limited knowledge of Website development.
To give an example a local entrepreneur can prepare and sell homemade Mango Pickle to Non-veg Pickle to Deshi Ghewar to organic millet to homemade fresh bakes through this site. I found this site really interesting in terms of the verity of products and the way they are promoting the local made foods.
Me being a development professional student of Rural development (apart from writing for my foodblog) often visits several rural areas on the country and aware how it is difficult to sell homemade or homecrafted products. We have so many talented people preparing several things all through the country but they are not well paid or it is better to say they are ill-paid and they are not even aware of the easy processes of marketing their products which requires nothing but to have knowledge of having proper marketing ideas. I found ezebee.com really unique with the idea of having own website by the local producer/ artisans or it is better to say anybody who wanted to be an entrepreneur.
