EasyShop.ph Seller’s Night a Roaring Success

EasyShop.ph

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

San Juan City, Philippines – May 18, 2014 – EasyShop.ph’s pre-launch event called the “Sellers’ Night” drew a huge crowd Saturday evening as online sellers, bloggers and others in the web community joined the company’s officials and partners to celebrate the newest online marketplace based in the country at the Green Lounge Events Place at the BTTC Center in San Juan City, Philippines.

 

Nelson Liao, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and President of EasyShop Online Inc; Sam Gavino, web development head; and Jerry Pereda, marketing chief were present during the festivities and took turns in convincing the audience why EasyShop is the next big thing in the online buy-and-sell marketplace.

 

Also present were online bloggers numbering around a dozen, roughly 20-25 online plus other guests including supporters and partners of the fledgling company.

 

“The data as of May 16th is that we have 2,000 registered users in our website and around 5,000 products already posted,” proudly shared Liao during a roundtable with the bloggers.

 

The figures look promising indeed as the website’s official launch is still on June 15, 2014 but more importantly, Liao emphasized on the security of the site—using the phrase “scam-free” multiple times during interviews.

 

“Other online buy-and-sell sites, it’s just a platform; it is not engaged in the transactions of the buyer and seller so there are lots of scams or it’s open to potential scams. They open the platform and then leave the buyers and sellers to their business; that’s the problem they don’t have any sort of monitoring,” said Liao, a graduate of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde in 2009.

 

“The main difference with us is that EasyShop is engaged with the transactions to assure that the money is secure. Unless the buyer has received the goods it’s only then that we release the money to the seller. On the other hand, sellers won’t have to worry about the payments since the money is already with EasyShop even before delivery.”

 

In between the discourse by the designated speakers for the night, prizes and freebies—from smartphones, tablets to a big screen LED TV– were given away via a raffle for those who had signed-up in the website and attended the event.

 

Among the partners for the pre-launch event are SKK Mobile, Mogao BS Mobile, Michaela, CCK Mobile, Yousie and Epson.

 

EasyShop.ph has a partnership with Nelsoft Technology, Inc. and PoziHongkong Technology Ltd.—two reliable software development entities that handles the website.

Summer Komikon 2014: Unofficial Fangirl of the Day

Yesterday, I was able to be a fan girl – at least for a day.  Aside from that, I was so ecstatic because I was able buy another Ground Zero Comics. The first issue I got was too long ago, and yesterday, I was able to get the second and third issue :)

Ground Zero Comics (instagram.com/shirerocks)

Aside from Ground Zero, here are other stuff that I read:

  • Rodski Patotski, Ang Dalagang Baby - When Irish and me were scouting for good comic finds, we both came across this title. I was starstrucked that Sir Gerry Alanguilan and Mr. Arnold Arre was in the Hall. The comics on the other hand is a good combination of action and good laughs. Personally, I thought Rodski (the leading character) is a spoiled but unwanted character. As I flipped through the pages, I began appreciating her personality more especially Dindo (the feels!).  Basta, go read. I won’t spoil everything :) Rate: 4.5

Rodski Patotski

  • Ground Zero – I began reading this when I was in high school. I stopped reading it because I wasn’t able to buy the next issue after that.  It was 2002 then. Because of Summer Komikon, I was able to grab the second and the third one. It still features Mystic Girl, Soul Tempest and the other story.  It made me feel nostalgic, and still looking for another issue. Sadly, the answer is still uncertain. Rate: 4.5
  • Higantes – From the creators of Zombinoy comes another comic series. And no, it’s not about Zombies this time around. The story basically revolves around brothers who accidentally discovered a ‘drink’ after a chase with other guys. The story kin of reminded me of Jack and the Beanstalk…with Pinoy twist. Rate: 4.5

I Attended MozillaPH’s Social Media Series: Blogging 101

I’ve been a Mozilla user for years. All those times, I enjoy reading news, researching and utilizing internet using this browser. Fast forward, since my full-time work revolves around working online, I make sure that I use Mozilla to build links, use Facebook and Twitter to connect with my colleagues and also to online communities respectively.

shirerocks_mozillasummitMy goal of attending a Blogging/Social Media event came to life last February 8, 2014. Together with a friend, we were able to score slots at MozillaPH Social Media Series: Blogging 101.  For those hours spent at listening to blogger experts, I never thought that I can do more about my blog and the tools of the trade that I used such as:

  • WordPress (represent!)
  • Blogger (way way back)
  • Social Media (Hey, it’s part of the job) and
  • Blogging itself.

I used to think that WordPress and Blogger are just vehicles for bloggers to make a story for their audiences to follow. Now, I’ve learned that such platforms played a major role in shaping up the skills, knowledge and even the improvements of blogging. In addition, Speakers success in blogging are truly inspirational especially for bloggers who want to make a name for themselves, and use it for the greater good.

Speakers mentions of technical skills (coding, css, html, securing accounts), online marketing (use of facebook, twitter and blogging), blogging (tips for a successful blogging) are truly one-of-a-kind.  With the current job that I belong to, learning from speakers with such expertise gave me an inspiration to become a better blogger and social media marketer too.

I’m looking forward to attend for more events like this :)
