Studies have shown that consumers have slowly but steadily become accustomed to shopping “online”. The recent pandemic has accelerated this as we saw the total number of online sellers grow to at least a million over the past year.
This rapid sudden accelerated migration to online platforms is not without challenges. Since inspecting products physically is getting virtually impossible, businesses didn’t have a choice but to source products online. As business owners ourselves, we understand this plight and that’s where SOFO serves your business. In essence, SOFO is a video-based app for B2B online sellers and micro-factories.
Small micro-factories can list their products, inventories, catalogs, etc. in the video form on the SOFO app. It's convenient for online sellers to check products in the form of videos and choose the best supplier. Both the parties can communicate through inbuilt chat features available in the SOFO app. In a world where whoever has data has the power, SOFO is a revolutionary platform in providing other important tools like data analytics, product catalog images, SEO product description content, and morewhich are crucial for success and making online selling more manageable and convenient.
SOFO App is designed with simplicity and functionality in mind. This is a no-frills platform where you will see everything you need at one glance or with a click of a button. This platform houses a ton of features without missing important features required for online sellers.
The sudden increase in online shoppers due to COVID-19 and home quarantine is incentive enough for others to transition to online selling. This means this industry is getting more competitive by the minute.
As the number of online sellers rises, so does the competition on ecommerce marketplaces. To survive and to stay a step ahead of your competition, online sellers need to be smart and strategic .
New online sellers need help to jumpstart and make the initial process of starting a business easier and more convenient. It’s normal for new online sellers to find it difficult to choose the best product category that can give them maximum profits with the least risk. SOFO makes this process easier for you.
When choosing a product to sell, online sellers need product catalog images, product description content, keywords, and more to list the products in a better way. SOFO app will provide these services in the Premium package.
When you’re starting or even if you’ve been in business long enough but not yet on a scale where you can order bulk orders, sourcing small orders is challenging. Our edge is that we help you source products in small quantities.
Similar to online sellers, the pandemic highlighted the wide discrepancy between large multinational corporations and micro-factories. The stark difference in capitalization often puts the latter in a tough, often impossible position to fight on the same level with the former. However, with SOFO, we are prioritizing micro-factories to reach their intended markets. By helping these micro-factories, we’re giving online sellers another avenue to source their product and this makes the whole enterprise more sustainable.

The SOFO app is built for two parties- Online sellers who sell products on e-commerce marketplaces, and Micro-factories who have small manufacturing units. Building a platform for these two parties will enable us to hit two birds with one stone -help small businesses getting their orders fulfilled and creating a market for micro-factories who are often bypassed in lieu of bigger factories.
SOFO app’s goal is to be the marketplace of choice for online sellers to source products from microfactories and sell them in online marketplaces. Microfactories will post videos of their products and workplace on SOFO app to generate leads and online sellers can just browse through the products and submit their orders.
