Are you an exporter of consumer products like jute bags, canvas bags, jewellery etc? Do you want to share your latest designs with your regular and important buyers without the risk of the competitors stealing your designs? Introducing the Private Digital Catalog.
As a seller/exporter, you can create a private online catalog for showing your new and popular designs to buyers and potential customers. The catalog can only be accessed by users whom you authorize. The buyers can view the products and optionally send an enquiry right from the product page. They can also mark designs as favorites.
Why should you use the Digital Catalog System?
As an exporter, you don’t want to publish all your important and popular designs on the open website as these may get copied. However, buyers need to see your work so that they can be impressed and place an order or start further discussion. A password protected digital catalog is the answer as you can provide access to buyers as per your choice and can revoke their access as and when needed.
You get detailed reports showing which buyer saw which designs helping you to gauge their interest.
Problems with the current process
If you have been emailing the designs to the buyers, you are never sure who is seeing them and who is not. You can also remove the old and obsolete designs. Updating a few designs and emailing to everyone who got the earlier photos is also a nightmare.
How the Digital Catalog System Works?
- This is an online catalog where you create user accounts for your buyers who can access the system by logging in.
- The buyers get to see all the items you have allowed access to, in a category-product hierarchy.
- The buyer can also search for the products based on certain tags like New, Bright, Large etc.
- There will be a provision for the buyer to mark certain designs as their favorite for further review and discussion.
The seller perspective
- Add, edit and remove user accounts for buyers and prospects.
- Add, edit and remove products at any time.
- Send alert mails (optional) when new products are added.
- See who has looked at which designs and get a market feedback about the popular designs.
- Check who has marked which designs as their favorites.
- Get enquiry direct from the system. Email based enquiries sometimes get misplaced. However, this system lets you see all the enquiries from a single console. You can also opt to receive a SMS whenever a new enquiry is submitted.
- Provide all company information like bank details, courier details and registration numbers on a single page for the buyers to verify. This can be extremely useful to protect you from the fund diversion fraud. Just ask your buyers to review this page before making payment to a new bank account.
- The system is password-protected and highly secure. So your competitors cannot hack into the system to see the designs you have uploaded.
- The system is online and available 24×7 from anywhere.
- Your catalog resides on your server and therefore others don’t have access to the data and the console.
- The software can be hosted on our secure business class server if you so desire.
- Fully responsive design means it can be viewed from a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile.
- The system is highly optimized for fast loading speed.
- Provision for multiple system users with different rights. This allows you to assign users from your company for updation of the catalog.

In the age of short attention spans, we all struggle with getting the maximum number of our emails read by the recipients, whether these are personal emails, regular business emails or newsletters. We have to get past super aggressive spam filters as well as the low attention span of the users and these email best practices can give you an unfair advantage.
Users check emails with one hand on the Delete button and if they cannot clearly recognise the sender and the purpose of the email, boom. The email gets deleted and there goes our all important message.
Mobile First design
Where do you read most of your emails? I won’t be surprised if you said – your mobile. Most people read theirs on the mobile or smartphones as they are constantly on the move and the mobiles are with them all the time. Get up in the morning, check your email. On the way to meet someone – check your email. Going to the bed – check your email.
You must format your emails properly so that it can read on a mobile device without any problem. If the mail is very important, consider sending to yourself, read it on your mobile and then only send to your final recipient.
Here are some important components of the email that you should format correctly for increasing your read and response rates:
The sender name is one of the most vital elements of our email that can help in avoiding the DELETE button. Use something that the reader will identify easily. I prefer to use “Arun Agrawal – Ebizindia” so that the user can identify me either through my name or my company name. When I send emails on behalf of WedPlan, I use “Arun Agrawal- WedPlan” as they may not identify Ebizindia so easily.
Always use meaningful subject lines and put some text at the beginning that they can easily identify. You can try simple & short subjects or intriguing subjects that arouse curiosity. I prefer to avoid getting too smart as that is what the spammers do. Clarity beats smartness in my experience. The primary job of the subject is to make sure that the receiver opens the email and reads the body.
A typical subject for me might look like: “[WedPlan] Demo login details as requested by you”. Or: “Order confirmation for Acme web design project”
The body of the email is again very important. Get straight to the point and convey the important part of the message as quickly as possible. I recommend that you greet the reader (Hi Mark) and then mention the main news in the 1st paragraph. You can provide supporting information or further details in the following paras. Keep all the paras short. Bullet points work great if you can use them in your emails.
When sending a longer email, sub-heads can break up the wall of text quite nicely and avoid reader fatigue. End with a note about the next steps (will you send more information later or are you expecting a response?). Sign-off with your name and co-ordinates – company name, website URL and phone number if appropriate.
Naturally, all emails cannot follow this template but this will give you enough idea about how to compose your email to get maximum reader engagement.
Firstly, if you are attaching a file, you must mention this fact in your email outlining the purpose of the attachment (invoice, whitepaper etc). People are very skeptic about opening attachments nowadays (rightly so) and you do not want them to miss your valuable information.
You must name the file properly (file1.docx, writeup.pdf are not great names). The name should give enough hint about the content (ex: Proposal for Acme Website redesign.PDF).
Adapt these email best practices and get much higher open and read rates thereby resulting in more business and closer connections.

Do you keep waiting for a site to load fully if takes too long or simply click the back button? Page speed improvement is the first thing you should consider when working on better user experience.
There are several things we need to consider when working on this. We need to review and adjust web hosting settings as well as the content, specially the images to achieve the speed up. You should be looking at the loading speed of the mobile version or the responsive site loaded on a mobile device. The speed counts much more there as the user might be on a slow 2G or 3G connection.
How fast does your page load now?
You can check the present performance at several places like this, this and this. While it is very difficult to get scores near 100, anything above 80 is good and above 90 will be fantastic. You can make the suggested changes yourselves or through your tech support guy. We also offer a page speed improvement service wherein we test the present performance to establish the baseline and then make the required changes resulting in the vastly improved performance.
Tip: Don’t delay this as the changes you make now will possibly increase your ranking and leads volume for a long time. The higher user satisfaction will be a cool bonus.

We recently launched a video showing the special features of our business class web hosting for people who are wanting to host their web sites and emails on a high-end and reliable server. Please have a look.
You have tons of very important digital assets on your computer. Those lovely photos of your adventure tour, the birthday party of your kid, a romantic anniversary or some cosy time spent with your sweetheart. May be scans of important documents? Have you ever thought what will happen to these if your hard disk crashes? Or God Forbid, there is a fire in your office building?
You need to have an offline place to store such digital assets so that they are safe in case an unforeseen situation causes you to lose your local copy on your hard disk. People have saved copies on CDs, DVDs and LAN servers but it is well known that at least one copy of the data must be kept off-site. Now you have a cheap option that is extremely reliable.
Consider saving a copy of the data on Amazon S3 (aptly called Simple Storage Service) if you might need instant access when you need them. At a rough cost of about $0.11 per GB per month and a small access fee when you download your files, this is one cost effective solution, specially because you get reliability factor of 99.999999%. What’s more – this is completely maintenance free. You do not have to bother about testing your media once in a while and keeping them in a dry, safe location.
And if you can afford a delay of about 3-5 hours when you need to retrieve your data (this is really rare, right?), you can opt for Amazon Glacier which is even cheaper at $0.01 per GB. So storing 100 GB of data costs you $1 or about Rs 60 per month. Excellent storage option for your archival files which have to kept in a safe storage but you might never need them, except may be once in a lifetime.
Ask us to setup these storage options for you at a nominal consulting fee that covers installation of a free software and one time training on saving and retrieving your data!
