DILP products boost sales during Online TNK Job, Business Fairs

Legazpi City, Albay – Various local products of DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP) amounting to about P300,000 were sold during the Labor Day Online Job and Business Fairs which is a three-day event organized by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Bicol and its provincial field offices (PFOs).

 

These were put on display from April 28 to May 2, 2021 via the online Job Fair system and official Facebook pages of DOLE-Bicol and PFOs.

 

According to Regional Director Ma. Zenaida A. Angara-Campita, the online platform has been a tremendous help to ensure sales of our beneficiaries and income from this livelihood projects.

 

“We wanted to make sure that during the Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan (TNK) segment, our livelihood beneficiaries would be able to have good online sales gains. To make sure that they’d be able to attract as many online buyers as they can, we featured some of their local products and services via our platforms and included their complete details for a seamless online transaction,” Campita added.

 

Among the livelihood beneficiaries who participated in the said online business fair is Jonel Guevarra. He runs an aluminum and glass cutting business at his hometown, Purok 2, Brgy., Del Rosario, Mercedes, Camarines Norte.

 

“Maganda po ang tulong na binigay ng DOLE. Compare dati na hindi pa kilala ang aking business ngayon po ay mas naging kilala na. Dahil rin po sa business fair ay mas nakalikom ako ng mataas na sales hanggang ngayon at nakabili na din po ako ng howler,” he shared.

 

According to Guevarra, he received assistance from DOLE back in 2017. Since then, he has successfully sustained his business by offering service at an affordable price. With his commitment to deliver quality results and value for money, his cutting jobs have become even more popular up until now.

 

“Dahil sa gamit na binigay ng DOLE mas napabilis ang paggawa ko at mas nababaan ko ang presyo ng aking produkto. At matibay po ang gamit na binigay ng DOLE,” he further shared.

 

Another DOLE beneficiary who joined the online event is 78-year-old Rosaline Brioso. Based in Balinad, Polangui, Albay, Brioso featured her White Duck Salabat with 7 Herbs products.

 

“Napakaganda po ng impact sa amin ng business fair. Honestly, nang nakipag-coordinate sa amin si Ms. Olga if we have a Facebook page, dun namin nalaman na na-hack ang existing FB ng aming business,” Brioso shared. She also added that they made sure to create a new Facebook page two weeks before the business fair.

 

“We’ve never joined business fairs before, kahit thru ads not until last week. Overwhelming na marami kaming na-receive na orders, because we don't usually promote our business online. Even today, we’re receiving a large number of orders from our past and new clients. Nadagdagan din ang aming mga buyers,” she further said.

 

As with other small businesses, they have also experienced the impact of the pandemic. But they realized that they can leverage the online platform to promote and market their products.

 

“With the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting almost every source of livelihood, we just have to come up with a strategy to assist those who have been badly affected. And as we learn to live with the virus, we also wanted to help our beneficiaries how to make the most out of our situation,” Campita stressed.

 

“A valuable tip that we can share to our livelihood beneficiaries-now-turned entrepreneurs is to adjust marketing strategy. During the business fair, we hope that those who attended the webinars were able to learn and gain some insight when it comes to growing their business online,” she added.

 

Campita also underscored the importance of online marketing, especially now that e-commerce is fast becoming the popular choice of buyers. By learning how to properly leverage the online platforms, entrepreneurs will be able to create a larger network and expand their reach.

 

Meanwhile, Brioso said that she looks forward to joining more online business fairs in the future.

 

"Great Job! Sa katulad kong MSMEs napakalaking tulong sa akin. Nawa'y marami pang matulungan ang DOLE,” she concluded.
