Save Your Time and Scale Your Business!

When you start enlisting the help of a skilled virtual assistant, you’ll start to realize why you should have done so sooner! VA’s can help with a multitude of tasks that may have been previously bogging you down, and not allowing you to get to more important work that was waiting for you.

This isn’t always bad, running your business solo is a true accomplishment to say the least. However, it may not always be feasible to continue doing, as your business keeps growing past milestone after milestone.

They say good help is hard to come by, but luckily we’ve got you covered in this department.

Keyword Research

If you sell online, have a blog online, or anything else ever that has something to do with being online…you know that keyword research is super duper important.

Why? Because the more keywords you are able to include in your title, description, and elsewhere, the more likely you are to attract the audience that you desire, to get your items viewed and sold in less time overall.

The virtual assistants that we work with are highly trained in keyword researching and SEO strategies, by our own team who have been there and done that. We understand your need to grow, but the frustration that comes along with it.

Deploying a VA service on the tasks that no longer require your time, can be the best thing you can do for your business.

Price Comparisons

Once you have those keywords down and ready to go, you’re going to need to start looking for those comparable items that have sold for similar prices. Oftentimes, this can be a rather time consuming task, given that you need to first find out if there’s any items similar to your own, but also if those have sold via auction, buy it now, etc.

After searching through page after page of products, you may still not find the right item to compare your own to. This can get annoying, since you won’t know how to price your item properly.

Sure, you can Google it, find it another way, and spend some more time scouring the web for that perfect price point. However, this is going to take a long time and that’s time you just don’t have if you’re trying to find room for growth.

Our VA’s have had their pricing skills sharpened by thorough research, learning, and experience. This will ensure that you can have the best price point put on each and every listing, without having to worry about if it’s too high or too low.

If your item is priced too high, you may not ever collect any potential buyers attention. But, if your item is priced too low, you may just likely lose out and leave more money on the table. Start using our VA service to begin listing your items at their best prices possible.

Perfect Your Photos

When you’re in a hurry and posting pictures of your items, you’re probably going to have a few going each and every way possible. This is totally normal, most of us are in a hurry and don’t realize that the photos are sized improperly, taken at a weird angle, or what have you.
Here’s the good news, though. Our virtual assistants can help you with your weird angles.

Just simply upload the photos that you have, in the way/order/size that you have them, and we will take it from there. Easy peasy.

If there’s one that needs cropping, we got you. If there’s another that needs adjusted or rotated, we got you covered there as well. This can be another seriously time consuming task, and you just don’t have time for all the nitty gritty details. Fortunately, we do!

Whiten Your Background

When you’re uploading your images to our app, you will even have the option to whiten your background right then and there.

No longer will you have to rely on third party applications to adjust, tint, and remove backgrounds from your product photos, you can now do all of that on one single platform.

Stop hopping from app to app wondering why you need to split your work between all of those platforms, and start listing with Hammoq to gain the efficiency you need to grow your company.

Manage Your Inventory

At last! An easy and quick way to manage your inventory. As resellers, or large businesses, inventory management can most often get in the way of a steady and productive work day.

Stop wasting your time flipping through bin after bin and start using our SKU form to keep your inventory more organized and thorough than ever before.

Add Your Products to New Platforms

When you list online, you’re going to want to do it on more than one marketplace, right? But maybe, you just don’t have the time to dedicate to learning all of these. It can be pretty extensive, and perhaps you don’t want to spend the extra minutes you may have on it.

That’s where having a virtual assistant can truly help. Our VA service has already been trained and taught the best practices to list on every platform out there.

New to eBay? No worries! We’ll get your products on there in a breeze. Want to try posting on Poshmark? Sure thing, that can be done for you as well. Choose as many marketplaces as you’d like, and we will get to listing. It’s what we do best.

You can simply post your items on our platform, (yes, just one!), and we can take it from there, saving you an incredible amount of time.

Cross-List Your Products

This can be a huge help if you have a warehouse or thrift store. More eyes on your items and brand, means more people physically making their way to your business in real life.

De-List Your Products

De-listing your products is nearly just as important as cross-listing. Why? Because when you begin your cross-listing journey, you will need to make sure that you’re not double selling your items. This is where de-listing comes in.

De-listing takes effect when we remove your item from any platform that it’s listed on, once it’s sold on another. Double selling seriously sucks, and on some marketplaces can be pretty bad for your business.

Make sure to take precaution and check out how we can improve your process with our de-listing option.

Keep You in the Loop

When you begin working with a VA service, life will automatically become much easier and more relaxed. We’ll keep you on board the whole way through each process, making sure that you know what’s going on with your products at all times.

Hammoq has your back, and we want to grow with you. Therefore, we’ll stay in touch with you each and every step of the way, to make sure you’re always reaching your maximum potential as an online seller.
