The current situation right now is challenging for a lot of people. Many lost their jobs while others have closed their businesses. But Filipinos are known for our entrepreneurial spirit and social media savviness, and many have ventured into online businesses. While online businesses are common, it’s not without challenges, especially during a pandemic. And that’s where LBC Online and their SoShop! program comes in.
What is LBC’s SoShop!
LBC’s SoShop! is basically a program with plenty of features but with a common goal, and that is to help entrepreneurs move and expand their online business further.
It is designed for ‘Social Sellers’ who are looking for a one-stop-shop solution to their online business, from payment to pick-up to delivery. That doesn’t stop there though, as SoShop! members will also gain access to a community where they can receive tips, updates, and promotions, as well as access to an exclusive marketplace for their business.
