The first half of 2020 posed an exceptional challenge in our personal life, businesses, and the national economics as well as Worldwide with the ongoing COVID-19 crises. Many of us have been forced to stop working as well as most of the business operations. It affects most of our working Filipino and those self-employed individuals. Most of the companies cannot afford to sustain their employee’s needs, with that a NO WORK NO PAY Rule applies to all.
Online selling becomes a new Normal
Forcing us to stop during the quarantine period that most of us stayed at Home. And most businesses in various industries have been affected because of the quarantine measures issued by the Government.
The pandemic has made a big opportunity not only to the online seller but to some Filipinos who ventured into online selling to have an income during the crisis. With the help of Social Media as the marketplace using their smartphones, people prefer buying and paying online from the comfort of their homes.
With the ongoing crisis, more and more Filipinos conduct business online due to lockdown restrictions. Small and Medium Entrepreneurs have adopted e-commerce by using various social media platforms. I have also been one of those Filipinos who ventured into online selling. I started selling pre-loved Japan Stuffed Toys, then I added selling essentials oils and oil-based perfumes. We saw a store selling raw materials in making cosmetics, organic soaps, candles, essential oils, and oil-based perfumes. They also have different bottles for packaging.
Another is that since I have my Shopee account I also start selling on this Online shopping platform.
Online Franchising Concept
During the Covid-19 crisis, I have been seeing some posts of the ONLINE FRANCHISING CONCEPT. At first, I was interested since the Franchising Fee is not the usual franchising price. a well-known Siomai food cart business becomes a word of mouth across social media particularly on Facebook. But it took me some time to sign-up together with my friend as my online franchise partner.
JC Worldwide Franchise Inc. reinvent its food cart business concept. Thus, the Siomai King ONLINE franchising business exists together with other products that you can sell online. I paid their one-time online package of P15, 888.00 as a franchise fee so we can start selling and earn.
Upon signing up and paying the package fee, we received a confirmation and the activated Shop Link a unique ID assigned for every franchisee. This Personal Shop Link will also serve our account in monitoring my sales movement or activities doing our business.

Is Online Franchising Business a Good Business?
Depending on how you will work to become successful in handling this opportunity. To become successful here, I should work hard by being CONSISTENT promoting my online shops. Starting to become an entrepreneur is not as simple as ABC you will make a lot of efforts to become successful. However, as I see owning a business gives you the freedom and a sense of ownership. Challenges may arise during the process but we should never stop.
