How to Use OLX to Showcase Your Business and Get Leads

Hello my readers, once again, I am about to show you another way to get leads to your business using the OLX Free platforms.

My name remains Francis Nwokike. I have been using the OLX platform to generate income through buying and selling of new and used goods but while trying to understand how best to leverage the platform as an entrepreneur, I found the service-showcasing category long time ago where users can actually showcase what they do and fix a price for their service.

Why am I telling you about this service category?

Over the years, skilled workers such as bakers, fashion designers, artists, graphic designers, POP makers, furniture makers and so on are limited to how they can showcase their service to the world or at least in their area.

Most times, it’s either through word of mouth or referrals that bring about new customers for these set of people. But I am about to share with you how you can leverage the OLX free platform to market and grow your business online.

Now you do not need to pay any dime for this free promotion.

I know few entrepreneurs are already taking advantage of this opportunity but many are still ignorant of this prompting this post.

You see, the OLX platform is not just for buying and selling of goods, you can as well showcase your talent, business or services therein.

Few years ago, I started a Janitorial Service Company that offer cleaning services to homes and offices alike. I struggled to get clients (frankly, still struggling as there are many competitors in the niche). I stumbled on the service category of OLX and decided to check it out. That same day, the first chat I received was from a job seeker that was willing to work for my company. I did not actually reply immediately as I was still seeking for jobs to execute before contacting those that will execute the same. (I pay my freelance workers daily)

To cut the whole story short, few days later, I started receiving calls to come and check out some offers of which some did not work out but a few did and I have built a little clientele through this free platform. I would have just relied on friends/family/happy customers to refer me to new customers as I do not have any special branded office location for this business but use my work address in my flyers.

But with OLX Promote-Your-Service offer, you can make your service remain on top, showing as an ad for weeks, months and even years as the case may be.

This promotional service is pocket friendly but the ROI could be very massive if you offer a great and sort after service.

In Conclusion

As an entrepreneur, your visibility is paramount. If people don’t know about your products/services, you cannot make money. You should therefore leverage opportunities such as this and many others to showcase what you do and without relenting, you will meet those customers that will change your life. Also note that you can replicate the same for other free platforms like JIJI etc.
