BRINGING CONNECTION BACK DURING THE PANDEMIC, GO LIVE EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE ON THE ODD MARKET.
The Odd Lot Foundation announced today they have developed a proprietary application that allows sellers to subscribe to the GO Live Platform enabling them to be connected with customers like never before. Unlike chatbots and video response services that have you record a message, send to the owner, and then wait for a video reply, GO Live connects you live and in person immediately. It’s the brainchild of the husband and wife team, Phillip and Shelly Dane behind The Odd Market. They have been producing events in Southern California for the past 30 years. And as we know, that all came to a screeching halt due to Covid-19.
“When the recommendation came down to not attend events, we knew instantly that we had to rethink how we have been doing business for the past 30 years. We have over 3000 registered Sellers who attend events to earn their living. That was stopped dead in its tracks. People were losing their day jobs. There were no events to attend. GO Live was born out of Covid-19.”
Dane has always been an innovator in the event business and his love of tech keeps him busy on developing their site during normal circumstances but things went into high gear when the pandemic hit. Immediately Dane began developing a platform that would reconnect his Sellers with their Customers. GO Live is a low-cost subscription that sellers on the Odd Market website can sign up for which comes with a mobile app much like a text app on your phone. When a customer is on a product page on theoddmarket.com, they will see the Supplier (artist or maker) and a link to their bio, a link to all their other products, and the GO Live button.
When a customer clicks GO Live, the supplier is notified on the app. They have the option to accept or decline the incoming video call. If they accept, within seconds the customer is connected on a video call with the supplier. Think of it as virtually walking into a boutique or craft show booth and being able to have face to face but with GO Live it’s from the comfort of your home. A supplier could be home, on a beach. walking their dog and always available.
In a time where connection is craved, GO Live delivers the solution. Customers feel confident when they can video call with the owner of a product. It’s fun and personable and it’s exclusively available on theoddmarket.com.
The Odd Lot Foundation is a 501c3 with a mission to assist small businesses to increase recognition and sales. In addition to the GO Live platform, we are launching Meet the Makers, an intimate look at what motivates, inspires, and drives the many small businesses that are selling or subscribed to The Odd Market. Up to 90% of all revenue generated through The Odd Market Online Store goes directly to the Suppliers.
