Only 38% of Australian businesses are owned by women – BuyersCircle is ready to change that!
With over 344,000 new business start-ups in Australia over the past decade, it’s still surprising to find that only 38% are owned by women.
We are now inundated with unlimited SaaS technologies, education and data intelligence to support a business’s success, so why are there still so few women at the helm of start-ups?
I think one of the reasons is that the idea of ââstarting, growing and maintaining a business is just overwhelming, especially if you are hoping to open your business while still keeping a job or looking after your family.
Many women conclude that there are simply not enough hours in a day, so the dream of starting is put aside.
It’s understandable. When you think about all you need to do to open a business – find a niche product, raise capital, build a brand identity, build a website and service infrastructure, research packaging, manage delivery logistics and storage, responding to customer service requestsâ¦ who has time for all of this? To the average person, this sounds like an absolute nightmare.
But a few months ago I was introduced to a new business that allows you to open a business and start selling right away, without all the usual hassle. It’s called Buyers Circle, and I was so impressed with the business that I immediately agreed to invest in it.
Picture this: with BuyersCircle, you can start your own online business in less than five minutes.
Think about it. In less than five minutes, you could be running your own successful online business! I find it unbelievable.
With BuyersCircle, it doesn’t cost you money to start selling, and it doesn’t cost you time to start selling. You just have to choose what you want to sell from Buyers Circle’s wide range of products, send them to your social network, then your friends buy from your store link and you start making money immediately. (You manage your business directly from your mobile application).
This concept is called “social e-commerce” and is taking the online world by storm.
BuyersCircle is disrupting the e-commerce industry by making it easier for women and entrepreneurs to start their own e-commerce business with quality products they can trust, stay connected to their social network, and still have time for their family and their friends.
No wonder the company is growing so fast!
