In today’s age of hyperconvenience, constant instant gratification can make it easy to take every order we make for granted. However, it’s important to think about every person who plays a role in making sure you get your package. While we’ve had a tough couple of years, there is no word more fitting for the Filipino people than “resilient.” Like the many other obstacles that came before, we will come out of this even stronger. Although our economy took a real hit during the pandemic, we have already been fighting to move on.
Social commerce is a huge part of that. It has been a revolutionary part of our economic ecosystem. Social selling is what allowed countless Filipinos to adapt to the pandemic and the data can certainly back it up. iKala reports that online sales made on social media platforms soared by a record high of 129% in the first half last 2021. It is clear that social commerce has effectively democratized eCommerce and levelled the playing field for many aspiring entrepreneurs. In light of National Heroes Day, we wanted to write a little piece to thank all the modern-day heroes around us.
Of course, eCommerce begins with our local business owners. It’s never easy to strike out on your own and work towards something bigger than yourself. Whether you're part of a major corporation, a small business owner, or even a part-time entrepreneur, your contribution is no small feat. You help the economy thrive with every job you provide and every sale you make. Your success is our success. Our mission is to help you lighten the load and our goal will always be to support you.
Next up are our ever-reliable support systems. They’re the ones who make your orders happen, the ones behind every food delivery meal you’ve shared with your loved ones, or even put your package together and make sure everything is as you ordered. They never fail to work hard behind the scenes and sometimes it can be a thankless job. Here at ChatGenie, we try our best to create features that don’t just help business owners sell inside the world’s biggest apps. We also strive to make a platform that helps every member of the team: from the management team to the serving staff.
Where would we be without our logistics partners? It’s time to acknowledge every person that makes sure your order gets to you, from the package facility staff to the couriers. Each stop your order makes on your order tracker may not mean much to you but a lot of work goes into your package delivery. Remember, tip your riders! Days can be long and yet, rain or shine, they’ll make your order arrive in an instant.
Last but definitely not least, we thank the everyday Filipino consumer. Yes, that means YOU too! Every purchase you make matters. We would be nothing without your support. What could be a just simple, impulse buy for you could mean invaluable help to let a struggling business stay afloat or a sign of encouragement to remind striving entrepreneurs to keep fighting for their dream. In return, we continue to aim for making your online shopping experience as seamless as possible.
No matter which part you play in our eCommerce ecosystem, remember that you are an important part of our country’s success. Thank you for being a vital part of our economy’s recovery. Salamat sa inyong serbisyo! Happy National Heroes Day. Here’s to you, our modern-day hero!
