The company is a large mobile phone and accessories retailer
- Had constant inventory coming in and new products to sell, but not enough time to keep up with the listing creation
- As sales increase so did the requirement for customer support
Aregb builds a team of eCommerce virtual assistants for the client exclusive to their company. 2 x staff members are trained to do eBay listings, Amazon and Magento. These two staff members become the clients listing team.
We also hire and train 1 x customer support representative to help answer hundreds of emails that the client was getting per day. The client provides 2nd Office with all the support and training documents for their company, we then train his staff member and within a few weeks the staff is already answering messages without any support from the client or Aregb.
The client is no longer behind on creating listings and see’s 30% increase in sales within the first month. With the additional staff for customer support, Amazon ratings are maintained and the company see’s an overall growth within the first few months and they are able to expand into another sales category. Overall, the client see’s a cost savings of 70% by hiring staff from Aregb.
