Event-goers checked off their Christmas list early and started the holiday season by supporting Filipino businesses at the Gift Local bazaar and Live Selling event. The Gift Local initiative is an effort Globe has spearheaded to help small businesses sell better, especially during the Christmas season. ChatGenie has proudly been their partner in helping entrepreneurs optimize social selling with In-App and In-Store Commerce. Merchants like Bambuhay, Ollocal, Lana, Kapelipino, Daniel Baker, Habi, Bayongciaga, Michee Mich, and Anna Magkawas were one of the first to try selling with In-Store Commerce.
The Gift Local event held at the Globe Tower was no ordinary holiday bazaar. In order to support Filipino MSMEs, Globe held an on-ground Christmas fair for a variety of gift-worthy items made by local artisans and small businesses made possible by In-Store Commerce. Using the ChatGenie platform in-store allows users to purchase products online with just a scan of a QR code. This simplifies the process and brings the convenience of online shopping to the in-person shopping experience.
While the in-person event was limited to Globe employees, customers were also given a chance to score great deals from the same merchants that graced the fair.
As mentioned, Gift Local Campaign didn't just happen on ground and was extended online to reach more people. Viewers of the Gift Local Live Selling event last December 2, 2022 were also able to catch exclusive deals, coveted product launches, and special vouchers. Just like the in-person bazaar, In-App Commerce allowed watchers to purchase products instantly upon scanning the QR Code present onscreen or even just clicking the link making online shopping that much easier.
