Whatsapp-Skype-Gecom-Buddy

Hey – it’s me Marc,

I am the founder of that service agency. Probably we both will get to know each other faster than you might think. Basically, I am one of the guys answering our clients requests.

Everyday, I deal with people who are stuck in their e-com decision making. Not because they are not smart enough but people sometimes need external advices from friends, colleagues or experts.

In those cases I usually help people to refresh their marketing approaches or their products from the bottom up.

However, not always I have to deal with those big challenges. Sometimes, I can just help people with my German language skills and make them happy within seconds.

Frequently Asked Questions

(You are not the only one who asks himself those questions)
Direct-to-consumer brands are known for selling directly to customers online, bypassing the โ€œmiddlemenโ€ of wholesalers and retailers. This allows brands to control the user experience, collect first-party shopper data and increase margins.

The testing phase is necessary in order to get enough data whether your products and your DTC brand will be working on the German markets. Therefore, we set up a testing environment for the German market.

  • We germanise your online store or build a new Shopify store.
  • We run initial PPC online marketing campaigns and work together with influencer for quick feedback loops.
  • We adjust a small quantity of your products in regards of the German regulations
  • We handle your German fulfilment.
  • We adjust your overall branding strategy for the German target group
  • etc.

During our testing phases it is essential to get to know whether your products do sell well in Germany or not. After we gained enough data to forecast your profitability, we will either stop our cooperation or we will go over to the scaling phase. From this point in time we need to adjust our storage strategies as well because then we usually refer you to one of our partner fulfilment centres.

An opportunity to receive quick assessments for your current e-com situation / regarding your e-com expansion to the German speaking markets (with optionally bookable comprehensive care-free e-com services & strategy sessions).

  • in-depth do-it-for-you services & strategy sessions

(After you received our assessment of your problem, you might get a suggestion for an additional service package which is always optionally bookable)

STEP 1) You have an e-com question

If you need advice youย  can send us a simple Whatsapp message and we will answer as soon as possible. You can vary between a text, a voice message or a video (if you donโ€™t use Whatsapp, we will agree on another option such as Skype, etc.)

Typical questions you can ask:

  • Hey, do you think our German online shop is ready to launch? Or is the design inappropriate for German customers?
  • Hey, I will send you an idea of a potential product we want to launch in Germany. Is it possible that you check the market for competitors?
  • We have a new contract with a German business partner. Do you know him? Is he trustful?
  • โ€ฆ

STEP 2) We will serve you with an answer

A dedicated expert will read your question. After that you receive individual advices. You will receive an answer in text form โ€“ as a voice message โ€“ or as a video message.

Example:

  • Hey, we checked your website and we think it is good enough to go for German customers. We wish you all the best for your product launch. There is only one little grammar mistake on your main page. It is called โ€œHandtuchโ€ not โ€œhanttuchโ€.
  • Hey, we think that there are some problems you need to find a solution for. The product packaging is prohibited in Germany. We have some regulations in Germany you must pay attention to. Otherwise German lawyer will sue you which can easily cost 400 dollars. If you need further advice for that I can refer you to someone who is an expert for German product packaging. Should we check out what he charges for an in-depth law consultation? No worries, you do not need to use his service.
  • โ€ฆ

STEP 3) Boost your business with our advice

After you have received our recommendations, you can apply the advices to your project. You have full control โ€“ you can simply contact us again if you are unsure about something.

If you need German staff who executes some tasks for you just let us know. We can definitely agree on an additional service package which makes life easier for you.

STEP 4) Ask another question if needed

The next problem is just around the corner? Donโ€™t worry โ€“ try to explain the new problem to us so that we can help you again.

If you want you can use the GeCom Buddy chat only for free advices. ๐Ÿš€ Additional services are always optional. However, in most cases we simply need to recommend some chargeable services because otherwise your business will not make progress.

Usually we us Whatsapp to communicate with our clients. But we can also switch to Skype for example. Just let us know if you need to be treated more individual. For in-depth strategy sessions we prefer Skype calls in general.

We usually work from Monday to Friday. On these days you can definitely count on us.

Basically we always aim to reply at the same business day.

Depending on the complexity or the amount of requests we sometimes reply a few business days later (but only in exceptional cases).
