WHAT IF THE BETA TEST DOESN'T PERFORM WELL?
In 30 days, we’ll sell the items back to you at the wholesale price we purchased at but rest assured, we’ve never taken on a product that hasn’t sold out. We usually determine how many units to purchase for the beta test after we receive a sample.
WHAT'S THE COST?
No upfront costs. Our services are covered from the difference between retail and wholesale price and that’s it. There are no hidden fees. We’ll deal with everything from marketing to sales to distribution to customer service, working on a commission basis. We don’t make money until you do.
WHERE ARE WE SELLING?
We primarily sell on WeChat but also use select TaoBao, JD, and TMall stores; all of which are incredibly popular eCommerce shopping platforms in China. WeChat is also the most popular social media platform in China, in which consumers can literally do everything like pay for utilities, talk to their friends, or rent a bike.
We get most of our sales through our network of top Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) who sell exclusively on WeChat. When we provide our KOLs with the content that we have created for your product, they will share it with their followers in their daily recommended lists and consumers will purchase directly through their WeChat store, within the application. We work with about 300 of them, each with following bases of up to 2 million people which has allowed FirstShotz to achieve tens of thousands of sales for our partners.
We will also sell through FirstShotz's WeChat Store and supplement through select TaoBao and JD distributors to increase reach and sales. TaoBao distribution also includes its more premium arm, TMall.
HOW CAN I PROTECT MYSELF FROM COPYCATS?
The best way to protect your brand from copycats is to enter the market. If the copycats have seen your product, they're going to copy it whether you're here or not. So in order to overcome them, it is important to be here and willingly compete by making the original accessible. We tell your story effectively so people are not only buying the product, they are buying the original brand which cannot be imitated.
We also limit and regulate third-party distributors. We have established strong relationships with individuals who we have worked with many times in the past, who will not price cut, and do not sell counterfeit goods.
