We have just launched out service - stallmart.com and we have couple of 'Real' Stalls (web stores) listed. However, there is a large number of small/medium/large sellers out there in the market and we are constantly trying to reach out them. But as a startup with limited means, it might take some time. In the meanwhile, I need some tips/advise on the below from you folks who would have already gone through early stage marketing;
1. Getting the idea across to small individual retailers is a challenge. We have built in some pretty good features that will help them promote their businesses. Challenge is making them understand. What you think is the best way to get the idea across to a potential customer & get them on-boarded? Problem is they have to sign up and get started.
2. We haven't started promoting our services to end customer (shoppers) as there isn't sufficient content on the site. Would it make sense to build some features that will attract the shoppers to the site in parallel? I think service like our where there is mutual dependency on the content will have a little tough time to get up n running.
3. I would love to meetup and speak to any of you who can help me with some advise/tips to get this up and running. Badly need a mentor/advisor :-)
