TackThis Helps Small Businesses In Singapore Sell Online
Social Sharing, Social Sharing"Social commerce is rapidly becoming the preferred way to do business online," says Dickson Gregory, CEO and co-founder PayWhere. "We set up TackThis to revolutionize online shopping, making it fun, social and seamless. We hope that this innovative tool will help small blog-shop businesses in Singapore to boost their efficiency and increase revenues." Gregory and fellow co-founders Vincent Lau and Damian Chow set up PayWhere when he first realized it was difficult to collect any form of payment online. At least one small business that uses TackThis agrees. “When I heard about TackThis’ Share Promotion feature, I immediately incorporated it into Magic Global’s Facebook Shop,” said Bigy Tan who owns Magic Global, a small business that sells health products. “Getting word-of-mouth referrals is one of the best ways for us to market our products, especially since an existing customer’s Facebook friends are likely to also fall within our target audience." "I have already seen a 15-percent increase in sales, after installing TackThis on my website and Facebook, and I am hoping to see a further increase in revenue with the new Share Promotion feature,” he adds. TackThis has been in open beta since September 2011, and to date, have signed up nearly 1,000 retail merchants. TackThis is incubated by NUS Enterprise.
