CEO, Bill Harding talks about recent developments at the Bonanzle marketplace and what the company’s future plans hold for its online buyers and sellers.
As Bonanzle continues to move forward, Harding said that the plan is to keep the same momentum and core values that the marketplace was initially built upon. In the coming year Bonanzle sellers can expect to see continued platform developments and lots of new features, big and small, added on a frequent basis.
In terms of further fueling growth and revenues for the company, Harding said that the company realizes that it has sellers covered, but more work is needed in terms of buyers. To extend its reach, the company is turning attention to goals that will improve sales for sellers in the coming year.
A new focus will be put on increasing sales and seller growth by fifty percent — allowing more online sellers to use fewer selling channels and earn better profits just from the Bonanzle marketplace. While remaining tight-lipped on specific details to increase sales of those who are already successfully selling on Bonanzle, Harding suggested that Bonanzle could increase seller profits while ensuring it wouldn’t cost those sellers an ‘arm and a leg’ to sell online.
