Running an African fashion business in the modern age can be demanding, especially if you are a small business owner. You are often in a dilemma; should you put in more effort into producing or selling a variety of clothes or pay influencers to market your products?
Sometimes, you end up juggling too much at hand. In the end, you lack productivity and miss hitting your sales targets. Another issue may be finding it difficult to hire multiple sales personnel to help you get more sales. We live in unpredictable times where businesses can collups anytime.

The COVID-19 outbreak has made it impossible for many small business owners to open shops to their customers. Those who were solely relying on this business model are going through incredibly difficult times. It is advisable that you be innovative in the way you handle your customers. They should be able to order online and at their convenience.
Without online selling, it is simply being left behind. The best way to minimize your stress and efforts is by listing your products on an online marketplace like I Wear African.
We have a wealth of experience promoting African brands over the last decade. We have a massive audience that is always looking for the next outfit to buy. The most common comment we get via our social media platforms is “where can I buy this?”
