Hi, My Name is Chris; I am the founder of edooby.ca. As I am sure you have discovered by now, selling online is not a simple thing to do. Setting up your webpage is easy, getting a good spot on Google, a high SEO and bringing customers to your site is not easy, it’s almost impossible for a small business, with a small budget.
Next, if you want to sell across Canada, you will have to register your business in each Province. In Canada, you need to charge and remit taxes based on the purchasers Province. That's a lot of work!!! edooby.ca helps ensure that you charge and remit the appropriate Taxes.
"When You Grow, We Grow"
I come from the Entertainment industry with a great deal of marketing skills, I am the ‘Idea guy’. My co founders, My wife Amy who is a tech Marketing consultant and our Partner Igor, who is a well respected developer figured out a way to make online sales easier for the Cannabis accesory Industry, by starting an eGroupMarketing platform.
Have you heard of Amazon? Remember when they only sold books? Book Stores, Authors and publishers all rushed to list their books on the Amazon Platform…… And where did people go online to buy books? “Joe’s Bookstore.net”? Nope, they all went to Amazon, because Amazon did the Marketing and advertising to make Amazon a household name synonymous with Books.
“Their Target Market Came to Them First”
Now, Amazon sells everything under the sun, and like eBay and other awesome platforms like it, when you search for “Bongs” over 30 000 products appear, and most have nothing to do with Bongs…. I find this very overwhelming and annoying, I am sure this also annoys the customer whose trying to buy a bong for his mother’s Birthday.
So, we started edooby.ca, and yes, we know, comparing us to giants like Amazon, eBay and others at this point seems a little over the top, but that's our goal! We have the People, the knowledge, the budget and the technology to make this platform a success! Do we expect to be in the Google number 1 spot today? No, of course not, we live in the real world. How about tomorrow? The next day? That’s the plan, but let’s give us a few months.
I am proud to announce that our Development Team have reached the final stages of developing the edooby.ca Marketplace Platform. The team will be spending the next month or so working on the finishing touches and testing.
Be sure to register your store well in advance of our Mid November Launch
“We Support You, You Support Us, and We All Grow!”
In theory, as more stores and people list products for sale and they add links to edooby.ca, and We in turn Advertise and Market edooby.ca and your products. As a group, the power in numbers theory is at work towards gaining visibility. Have you ever noticed when you search for a product on Google, the first results that appear are almost always Amazon, eBay or something similar? That’s the power of popularity and a great deal of Marketing, and you should know a that large part of edooby’s budget is designated for getting our name out there and positioning edooby to be a dominating force in the online cannabis market.
“How Does edooby.ca Work?”
So, this is how edooby works - You, a company or a person wants to sell stuff:
1. You pre register your store
– Pre registration is a good idea as the store/url names are given out on a first come/first serve basis. Having YOUR own unique store name that matches YOUR business is important to the growth of YOUR company.
2. You build YOUR Store (when WE launch)
- Our platform uses an easy store building system to add your logo and product pictures to our templates. Be creative in your descriptions and art work, and have some fun.
3. People come to edooby.ca and search for products, they find what they like at your store and they order it.
4. edooby.ca holds the funds in escrow for 14 days, to give time for you to process and ship the order.
5. edooby.ca collects and remits the different provincial sales taxes for you, allowing you easy access to sell in every province
"How does my store URL work?"
- Your store will have its own unique name and URL, example: edooby.ca/bobsbudstore
And, we encourage you to add YOUR unique store link to any promotions, emails, web pages to direct people to YOUR online store.
What will my store look like?
