Tool launched for firms to benefit from social networks
By Van Oanh - The Saigon Times Daily
HANOI – Bao Kim E-Commerce Co. (baokim.vn) has launched an e-commerce tool called Siki at siki.vn to help individuals and businesses access social networking communities for commercial benefits.
E-commerce in Vietnam has been playing a role in trading activities. Therefore, many online business models have been carried out, making significant contributions to spurring business activities.
However, the model of an e-commerce trading floor has not received a positive response from users in terms of interaction with social networks.
Therefore, Siki has been developed to commercially tap social networks through a new concept of online transactions based on interactions among social networks. Siki aims to fully serve the trading demand with features of simple business, convenient advertising and easy settlement of payment.
With Siki, one can register to sell or buy products with social network members. Through the services offered by Siki, users can easily sell products to members of Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Zing Me via a link created by Siki.
In the future, Siki will continue to broaden its support for local social networks to increase its coverage and efficiency for users.
Siki supports three types of links with three different goals: sell links, buy links and trade links. Users can post items for sale, look for products to buy or share links to help the community and enjoy commissions from Siki.
Payments for transactions on siki.vn can be made through banks, cell phones, or e-wallets.
To use this tool, users must connect to Siki through their Facebook, Yahoo, Google and Twitter + accounts and then create links and directly share them on the social networks. For more information about this tool, visit http://www.siki.vn .
Le Thi Huong, webmaster of dienthoaihanoi.com, one of the first users of this model, said Siki users could actively select and provide information to potential customers quickly, with no cost to create and maintain a link for months.
