Second generation of entrepreneur -Xiao
Thinking about transformation beginning as a Taobao seller
Now, the sales of shoes increases tenfold

Xiao Weicheng, who is 28 years old, is the boss of No. 3-22245 store named “Southland dreamer” located in Region 3 of Chengdu International Trade City, also a standard “second generation of entrepreneur”. With more and more e-commerce purchasers and online shopping has gradually got into people’s daily lives, when Xiao graduated, he has determined to change the major customers of their own business into e-commerce companies from secondary or third wholesaler in the past.

“In the beginning, his family disagree with this idea, because they have done in the same way for so many years, a fast transformation will cause risk probably. And what Xiao learnt in college is theoretic without any practical experience.” Xiao said that after repeated consideration, he decided to start as a Taobao seller, using middle-end differentiated products to enter the market.

In the first half of 2013, seizing the opportunity that the market where Xiao’s parents doing business was collectively relocated into Chengdu International Trade City, Xiao proposed the idea of changing a larger shop, which can better meet the demand of products with rapidly updating product design and diversified styles sold online. Meanwhile, due to stable and timely goods supply, the number of customer has increased from dozens to thousands, and about one hundred member companies come to see the goods everyday.”

Today, Xiao can sell nearly 2000 pairs of women’s shoes everyday, which equals to 10 times the sales when his parents was doing business.

She said her goods will be sold overseas

Being different from Xiao’s firm transformation, Su Guixiang, whose shop named “Guixiangzu Shoes” and numbered as 3-22171 near to Xiao’s shop, complete her transformation with suspicion to e-commerce.

However, despite of suspicion, Su didn’t easily give up such an opportunity to “make her business better”.

In the second half of 2013, after more than 6 years during which Su has been doing both traditional wholesale and supply for e-commerce companies, Su decided to give up traditional wholesale and specialize in 3-commerce business. Now, she not only doesn’t mind the customers taking photos when they are purchasing goods, but also require the workers in her two manufacturing factory located in Qingbaijiang District to take photos of every newly launched products and upload them as soon as possible.

When Su were talking about future plans, the reporter couldn’t help “praising” for a sentence of her, “in the past, no matter how well I did my entity shop business, I only can sell shoes all over China, but now by e-commerce, my products can be sold overseas.”
