Business professional and business firm alike, many are exploring new, sustainable sources of income. And, for many, this exploration has led them online to Flevy, the marketplace for premium business documents.
In recent months, we have noticed a number of consultants and consultancies have joined Flevy to sell their business documents. These documents take the form of business frameworks and document templates, mostly in PowerPoint format. Topics have ranged from Hoshin Kanri to Storylining.
One such example has been Operational Excellence Consulting, a management consulting firm based in Singapore. Since joining in February, OEC has quickly grown to one of the most prolific sellers on the documents marketplace. Here is what Allan Ung of OEC had to say:
For businesses who are exploring or starting out selling documents and have not yet figured the technicalities of distributing the products and receiving payments, Flevy is a great place to kick start your digital sales. Additionally, Flevy’s network of customers will add to your customer base, thus enhancing your digital reach. We are satisfied having Flevy as our partner and look forward to growing the relationship further in the future.
For someone looking to sell business documents, Flevy offers a number of key benefits:
- Marketing and Sales. Once live on the site, your document is immediately presented to Flevy’s growing customer base. This is not a passive process, as it is for most other marketplaces. Flevy will push your document out to customers through emails, through social media, and through other tactical campaigns. For high potential documents, Flevy will also tailor custom marketing campaigns to drive its sales.
- Reach and Branding. Offering documents is an effective method of developing one’s brand and increasing one’s presence. This is done by branding your document with your personal information or firm’s branding. Flevy allows you to expand beyond your local network and market to reach a global audience. For a consulting firm, this represents a powerful new channel to land new clients.
- Ease of Use. Setting up an e-commerce storefront and accepting payments online can be a tedious, hairy process. Flevy takes care of all the technical issues.
