Arialaba: All You need to Know About This New Platform
We all at one point or the other experience challenges with making sells as an entrepreneur or a company. This is especially true in Nigeria, where the general business atmosphere isn’t favorable to both big and small businesses and/or companies doing business here. There are many challenges that all businesses in Nigeria encounter, such as electricity, good road network, finances, trust, and make sells. The two last points are the primary problems in which Arialaba is solving.
Arialaba is a Nigerian e-commerce marketplace that brings retailers, wholesalers, and Manufacturers closer to their target customers. The name Arialaba is simply gotten from the merging two very popular markets in Nigeria—Ariaria (Ari) and Alaba (Alaba) international markets in Aba and Lagos, respectively.
The two main issues this innovative Nigerian marketplace is solving is creating trust between customers and enhancing the sales of different businesses. Below are the breakdowns of problems we are solving, and how we will address them.
- Trade Fraud Prevention
- Provide A Real Shop Website Platform to Businesses
- Save You Money
- Have More Customer Trust
Trade Fraud Prevention
Trade fraud is one of the biggest problems encountered by online shoppers and businesses in Nigeria. There are many online marketplaces in Nigeria, just like Arialaba. However, none has gone the extra mile to protect both the vendor and the customer from trade fraud. Arialaba provides a security system (Trade Assurance) to ensure that both the vendor and the seller are kept in check.
Provide A Real Shop Website Platform to Businesses
Nigeria certainly has many online marketplaces that users can join, upload their products, and make sells. However, none of these websites offers a dedicated shop feature to help businesses have an online presence and broaden their customer base.
Arialaba provides a platform that enables business owners to be able to have their own online shop, with a dedicated shop link. They can upload their products, perform SEO on the products, and can perform social media marketing.
With this platform, it saves you time, money, and looks to put an end to “DM me for price.”
Another significant advantage of using Arialaba is that you have trade intelligence. You’ll know which goods are performing better, which states where your customers are based, how you can improve your services, etc.
When you have many products to sell as a retailer, marketing them manually as done by the average internet seller in Nigeria, consumes time. You’ll have to post on several Facebook groups, comment on several Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook posts in other to get customers online. All these take time, and time is an essential factor in business, one that you can do other important things that would grow your business.
Arialaba offers a unique way to help save your time, with all your products uploaded to Arialaba, you won’t have to jump from platform to platform. Your products will be marketed with paid ads across these social media platforms and Google, giving you more exposure. Also, you’re not being limited by Arialaba in terms of advertising your products. If you feel you are not receiving the exposure that you need, you can also promote your products in other platforms to get more customers.
Save You Money
Cost-saving is another advantage of using Arialaba. The fact that the cost of running and maintaining a website is not cost-effective, especially for an average Nigerian business. Arialaba takes that burden away and lets you focus on production and sells.
Also, it saves you data costs. For each product picture, you upload in Facebook groups especially, costs you a portion of your mobile internet data subscription. For broader reach, you’ll need to post into more groups. But with Arialaba, once all products are uploaded, you can take the unique product link and share it to get more customers.
Have More Customer Trust
Most businesses in Nigeria fail not because of their bad doings but because of the toxic nature of doing business in Nigeria. Customers wouldn’t trust sellers online unless they visited the offline shops themselves. However, with Arialaba, your business will be verified through valid ID identification. Also, you’ll be offering your customers an extra layer of trust with our Trade Assurance policy. Customers buying will have more feeling of security. If you’re a real business in Nigeria and not a scam, you won’t have any problems providing to your customers an extra layer of trust.
