Adviable has been created to help companies optimize online marketing costs by reducing the amount of money needed to get online exposure of brands and products. Although online exposure is key and a critical part of success there are so many other areas in business that require funding in order to drive success.
What will be the future direction of Adviable? That is an important question. Continued development of the platform will make certain that our business, job, and event directories are digitally as comprehensive as possible. Our team will be developing an enhanced digital exposure strategy for the platform. Additional upgrades will be released as technology advances.
Adviable was built to ensure that entrepreneurs and business owners could be part of an online, local, national and international online community while keeping costs to a minimum. We have no membership levels that are built to give advantage to brands that have huge budgets over those brands that are only starting out. A single location local business couldn’t even spend more than $200 a month on Adviable even if they wanted to.
Online advertising sure seems to be the largest part of marketing expenses and very often eats into other areas of the budget. In order to spend the money on ads it has become a huge technical challenge for business owners and entrepreneurs as advertising platforms have become a bidding war that in most cases force the business to hire the services of an online marketing professional.
Not having the necessary knowledge of this new and ever changing online advertising environment makes it even more challenging for business owners when interviewing companies to take care of these advertising “bidding wars”.
What are the skills needed to provide results and what questions should they be asking? How do they even know that they are being told the truth? With huge amounts of money being spent on these ad campaigns getting the results often becomes a make or break scenario for these businesses.
As you know it is pointless being the best hairdresser in town if nobody even knows that you exist. So marketing yourself is absolutely necessary and in most cases way more expensive than most start out companies or professionals can really afford without taking a huge risk which could prove disastrous if the ad results are poor.
During the 2020 pandemic it was abundantly clear that companies who were not properly represented online were left at a very big disadvantage. In many cases, the lack of online exposure and availability of services online resulted in the closing of many such companies.
Can you have too much online exposure? Probably not, however online ads should not have to break the bank. There should be a balance between online advertising, local advertising, supporting your local community and spending money on other things like hiring more staff and increasing production capacity.
Adviable allows you to share all your literature, photos, videos, external websites and social media links, while allowing actual customers to rate your business and give feedback via their reviews.
As a new platform we are sure that we too will face many challenges along the way just like any other business would, but we are super excited to be breaking the mold and being a part of helping business owners from around the world to improve their online presence with an easy to use platform.
Always wanted to sell products online? (aka ecommerce). We have even taken it a few steps further by allowing the public to sign up and sell their products on Adviable without any sign up or monthly fees.
We have added the ability for you to sign up for a Stripe Account which adds an ecommerce product dashboard to your standard dashboard. This means that you can now create online products and sell them on Adviable.
Create your product, list your product in the Marketplace, sell your product and ship your product. Your payments are processed by Stripe and paid directly to you. Best of all you don’t need to be a web designer to be able to start selling products online.
