KL Online Shopping Events (KLE) has been supporting businesses since opening in 2017 and over the years I’ve tried so hard to make it a community. Somewhere for sellers and shoppers to come together to network and chat. Not just show off creations and services but really get to know one another.
Community – “a social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality, share government, and often have a common cultural and historical heritage”
My community is wide...
I obviously have my KLE Facebook page and website where I share product photos, videos, myself but I also have…
A free training group on Facebook for small businesses; where they can ask questions without being judged; where they can learn basics and more advanced parts of being a business, and where they can network with new and old Facebook businesses.
I have the brand new free KLE Craft Shopping Group on Facebook for sellers to post their pages and products, and for shoppers to get to know owners and browse without being pestered by spam videos or networking posts that they don’t need to see.
My website vendors are in another Facebook group where they can chat, train and be shown stats from the website.
I have a Facebook application group for stall holders wanting to join my events. They can see each theme and decide what would be best suited for their business.
I know, it sounds like I have loads of groups but you only join what you need. If I had all these together it wouldn’t work for anyone. It would be a mess.
I monitor all these groups and always reply to any queries.
You can also apply for events on my website (not everyone likes FB!) 😉
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing that my events have brought businesses together in collaboration. This is what I love the most.
I’ve seen a few businesses evolve from selling just one item type to a selection, and even opening new pages. One has even helped support a physical business that wasn’t online, by putting her products in their store.
Businesses have collaborated for my events too … and this is fine, I don’t mind this and actually think it’s wonderful. They both join and advertise their shared product, or one joins and does all the sharing.
You can join my community on Facebook or leave a comment on my website blogs… I’ll always reply x
(unless you’re a spammer…I get rid of those all the time!)
