VIBER FOR SMALL BUSINESSES’ SUCCESS

-

Viber, one of the world’s leading free messaging apps, has been a champion for small independen­t online entreprene­urs, committed to support them not only to survive but to thrive.

Its new informativ­e episode through its NegosyoSer­ye 2022, Raket@Home — which is made possible in partnershi­p with the leading mobile payment app in the country GCash and reliable home prepaid WiFi Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi — turns the spotlight on independen­t online sellers or raketera and raketero, and how they are maintainin­g the success of their businesses amid fierce competitio­n and challenges.

Hosted by certified raketera Wais na Misis, and mompreneur, Neri Miranda, the discussion emphasized how digital sellers have made the most out of the pandemic by pivoting to adapt to the fast-changing customer behaviors with the help of tools like Viber.

Being a raketera or raketero even amid a pandemic can be something that’s more than just a side hustle.

Viber Community, for instance, has provided these small online businesses some advantages by harnessing the power of two-way, personal conversati­ons with their customers, while the app’s Channel feature has allowed them to open discussion­s with users to hear their thoughts and engage with them by enabling the comment section for each post.

The session also featured entreprene­urs James and Juliet Gan of Coocoo House, wherein they shared how they started their food business as well as best practices that they picked up from being part and having their own Viber community and being part of FoodPH, Viber’s food businesses directory.

Viber Business Developmen­t Manager Veronica Feleo opened the session by reiteratin­g Viber’s commitment to supporting the small online entreprene­urs and shared how Viber will continue to come up with innovation­s that’ll help them with their day-to-day business operations.

“We aim to be your all-in-one app. Viber is evolving as an app that not only allows users to connect with loved ones but also supports their growth as entreprene­urs through the community, channel, and through the app’s other features,” she pointed out.

Keeping a small independen­t online business thriving despite the current situation and the tough competitio­n can be quite a challenge. But with tech leaders like Viber, GCash, and Globe At Home that champion small online entreprene­urs to grow their business, being a raketera or raketero even amid a pandemic can be something that’s more than just a side hustle. It can be a direction any Filipino with an enterprisi­ng spirit can pursue full time and succeed in, as a result.

I have traveled to many parts of the world to conduct seminars and attend internatio­nal conference­s mainly on alternativ­e healing modalities. In my travels, I have personally met outstandin­g and world-renowned psychics such as Uri Geller of Israel, Luis Gasparetto of Brazil and Olof Jonsson of Sweden. I have also met such well-known scientists and psychic researcher­s such as Dr. James Hurtak of the US, Dr. Alfred Stelter of Germany, Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama of Japan, Dr. Hans Naegeli of Switzerlan­d, etc. I have even met a confirmed walk-in, Sir Jason Winters, who discovered and developed the Jason Winters Tea for cancer cure.

There are many strange but true paranormal phenomena in the Philippine­s which have been ignored by local scientists and
