Like most small business owners, Rob Mclendon needed a way to jump-start his newly opened children’s consignment store, My Kid’s Closet, in Puyallup, WA. Instead of using a daily deal coupon or spending tons of money on advertisements to attract customers, Rob sought the free service of OfferUp.
Just by snapping a few photos and jotting a brief description of his store’s items, Rob was able to catalog his store inventory. However, Rob’s favorite part of OfferUp was that he was able to distribute his post easily and effectively to his Facebook fans and other local outlets. Furthermore, Rob loves to use OfferUp to instantly respond to any question a customer may have about an item. In his own words, “it keeps me connected to my customer base right from my pocket. I really like that.”
Now that Rob has a steady stream of new customers and a growing list of loyal clients, he can’t sing enough praises for OfferUp. He’s even gone as far as to insert “Follow Me on OfferUp” fliers into every customer’s shopping bag. “I tell everyone about OfferUp and if they follow me, they can be the first to know when something new comes into the store.”
