Goleza Shop – An Online Store for Engraved Products and Gifts in Uganda
Since March 2020, we haven’t been blogging for our readership. It’s not that we had gone out of blogging ideas and lost commitment. The reason was that we developed an ardent need to establish Goleza shop, an online store for our engraved products, personalised gifts and engraving services.
Although we already had the idea of building an online shop, the advent of COVID-19 pandemic made us quicken the process. This deadly disease made it difficult to conduct our brick-and-mortar business due to an extended lockdown that caught us unaware. The only option we had was to consider operating from home. And the online store would henceforth act not only as a showcase for our products, but it would also enable us to sell them to our customers.
As a result, we put on halt updating this blog with fresh content and focused on setting up Goleza shop. We inevitably had to postpone blogging because establishing an online store is indeed an enormous project. It requires a lot of time, money and other resources. Thankfully, we have ably set it up for the last two and a half months. It’s now operational with twelve products distributed into four categories. We plan to add gradually more products.
Which Products Shall We Be Offering in Goleza Shop?
Our vision to offer quality engraved products and engraving services inspired us to establish Goleza Online Shop. In this shop, you will find the products we produce in our engraving business using modern technology. We shall give you the very best of custom awards, wedding and seasonal cards, name tags, asset tags, company seals and rubber stamps. You will also find photo albums and frames, wall art, clocks, key chains, bracelets, signage and many other one-of-a-kind gifts.
In addition to engraved products, we intend to offer services related to engraving and training courses. Once fully operational, Goleza Shop will, therefore, be a one-stop centre for unique engraved products and services. Our goal is to serve all over, both nationally and internationally.
What Do We Want to Achieve with the Goleza Shop?
Since we started our engraving business, we have encountered several challenges. These challenges have made us learn a few lessons. For instance, the marketing challenge led us to learn web designing and internet marketing which we use to promote our business effectively.
The need to sell our products 24 hours a day to our customers all over right from home prompted us to consider establishing Goleza Shop. And with this online store, we specifically want to achieve the following.
♦ Showcase our products.
This online shop will enable us to exhibit the products we make to our potential customers.
♦ Give the cost of the products.
Every inquiry from our prospective customers starts with finding out about the cost of the product(s). Our online shop will enable clients to know the price of each product.
♦ Make our business increasingly home-based
We want to make our business 75% home-based to minimise operational costs and maximise profits. With our online shop, our customers will be able to make orders at any time without coming to our conventional shop.
The Covid-19 pandemic has made us change the ways we have been doing business. One of them is considering establishing the Goleza shop to start selling our products online. Visit now to have a look at our online shop!
