Bullszi is your local marketplace to buy & sell just about anything.
Bullszi started as a single online store and after some local businesses wanted to join in on the idea of using the Internet to expand their sales, in 2011 I decided to make it a worldwide marketplace. I wanted to give individuals and businesses the opportunity to sell and advertise their products online on a simple and affordable way. Almost after a year of hard working, in July of 2012 we went live with our new marketplace. As we grow and interact with our Sellers and Buyers new suggestions and ideas are being implemented into Bullszi. At Bullszi we strive to give our Sellers and Buyers the quickest, simplest and safest methods for online shopping and advertising.
Some Features on Bullszi:
- Post unlimited items and manage them from your Bullszi Store, there is no expiration, items will stay listed until you sell them or until you delete them.
- Each item can have up to 6 extra photos.
- Buyers can leave feedback in regards to their purchases.
- Use our Bulk Product Upload for faster listing your products.
- Bullszi offers friendly URLs.
- Sales Tax settings set up by State.
- All items are fed automatically on a regular basis to various Shopping Search Engines and various Social Media sites.
- Bullszi charges a very small commission fee of 2% on each sale, this is basically to pay the server fees. No other hidden fees.
Coming Soon: New features and new services.
As most of you already know Bullszi was born as a local neighborhood business and at the end of July, 2012 it was transformed into an eCommerce site to help local businesses sell their products online and since then sellers have listed over 60,000 products on the site. Right now Bullszi keeps 2% of each sale on the marketplace, that's not even enough to cover the server fees.
All of the work performed by our team is voluntary except for any development needed on the site.
Bullszi.com just launched a campaign through Indiegogo.com to raise funds to expand our site to accommodate our new services called Bullszi Neighborhoods, a FREE online service to promote and advertise the products and services of local businesses and individuals. Bullszi will not be charging any fees to users under Bullszi Neighborhoods.
This will work mostly as a directory of all local businesses, by neighborhood, city or state.
Being a Rhode Islander since a young age and having owned several start up businesses since then, I can understand the struggles of running your own business especially in these changing economic times. After discussing today's’ emerging business issues with some local business owners, I came to the conclusion that I could make a difference by implementing my ideas into a new and technological way to introduce local businesses and local individuals to what has become mainstream, the Internet.
By presently owning an Internet business myself and from talking to other local businesses, I can say that most of the local small businesses cannot afford to invest in a website or even pay for advertising in local newspapers, magazines and online ads. Through this project we will strengthen their possibilities of online sales and advertising without infringing on their financial situation.
The Impact of This Project
Nowadays few businesses can afford not to have an Internet connection to advertise and sell their products. And it has become second nature for many consumers to check out products, services and availability online before buying. The Internet has become part of our daily routine.
The Internet is also about time-saving for consumers, where purchase and delivery, as well as information, is more quickly available than ever before.
Through Bullszi Neighborhoods, a community driven business, local businesses and individuals will be able to promote their business or offer their services locally or globally in a practical, economic and consumer driven way.
Consumers will be able to find, view, order, request products or services and leave feedback based on their experiences.
Bullszi has it's own saying:
Ask not what your business can do for consumers, ask what consumers can do for your business.
Businesses and individuals would have a community marketplace where they could show, advertise and offer their products and services and in return consumers would have a better and closer alternative of finding and shopping for those products and services.
Take for example Maria, she loves baking and she makes wonderful pastries. She makes them for her friends parties and once in a while she will sell a few to the coffee shop around the corner from her house. But she would love to start her own business, own her own store. Bullszi Neighborhoods will help her achieve the exposure that one day could make her dream a reality.
Consumers will be able to find Maria's pastries, order from local restaurants, make reservations, find out who delivers and in what areas. Find who is the best local landscaper, who is the best house cleaner, the best carpenter, the best artisans and other services and products from local businesses and individuals in their neighborhood, city or state.
Consumers will also be able to request products and services that could not be found on the site.
Local community activities like state fairs, crafts shows and others, would be posted on the site. Bullszi Neighborhoods will increase local businesses presence in the marketplace, increase their revenue, profits, increase their spending and eventually create more jobs locally.
What We Need & What You Get
We are looking to raise $25,000.00 to fund the construction of our new project.
These funds will be used to pay for the development of the platform to accommodate the new Bullszi Neighborhoods, integrate the actual Bullszi Marketplace with the new project and develop a mobile service.
Afterwards, emphasis would be put on marketing and creating the “buzz” through local and national networking. In addition, a connection would be made with local businesses and community development centers to expose the concept and find out from the local business owners and community leaders how the concept could help them the best.
Anybody that would like to contribute can choose from a wonderful list of perks that we have to offer, from Bullszi T-shirts to Alternative Apparel caps, hats, messenger bags and hoodies. We also have Reactor watches to offer. All the merchandise being offered is NEW.
Even if we don't reach our entire goal for funding, we will be very grateful and any funds raised will go towards the project.
Let's bring the small businesses back.
Please help us make this a reality.
Any contributions would be greatly appreciated.
