It would depend a lot on what you are selling and who your target market is.

Why don't try get a temporary shop on a week basis @when there are events arranged next to the interchanges. :) which has temporary shops displaying their products.

You create awareness by means of advertisement, promotions amongst others...

..which I see you have done.

It also depends on the intensity of the promotion/s but bear in mind that is dependant on your product/s.

May I suggest you have a tie-in promotion say with some entity selling cellphone covers, cases etc.

It's a tough market for what you're selling unless you have something unique to offer.

You would need some good exposure for your products with maximum exposure and low overheads. Try the E-commerce way - target not just the Singapore market but the rest of the world too. I tried advertising in the Straits Times and Magazines but through the exposure of the Internet I have a virtual shop 24hrs a day, 7dys a week at a fraction of what I pay for a Hardcopy Advertisement. May be worth a shot.

Dial-A-Beer

Post by ironlady » Sun, 23 Apr 2006 12:51 pm

Hi there , a friend of mine had suggested that we open a DIAL-A-BEER business ,,freelance..meaning that people actually call us for delivery of beer and liquor.. but of cos there will be a minimum order and we sent it to the place of delivery... can the man out there tell me if such a business will work out...

anyone keen to joint venture.. also ,does anyone know where I can get the license from ?

Thanks!
