our journey

We have a duty to improve our services

As we learned what our customers wanted and what competitors could not provide, we had no choice but to create personal business services for any kind of business. One place to do everything, quickly, and efficiently was our goal. We also knew their customers loved discovering new services and products through videos so we made video-shopping a core feature in the Aliud Buyer App.

From the start

Why is it so hard to start a small business, build a digital presence, and advertise online?

The problem has always existed

The process to starting a profitable online personal business was painfully complex and rigged against small and local businesses and their customers.

Starting

  • Sellers face Offer and business discoverability issues online and offline. They have no time to manage digital and physical operations, especially when selling solo or part-time.

Running

  • There are so many platforms, subscription fees, marketing terms, and ad tools designed for savvy desktop users - not people selling from their phones.

Marketing

  • The time and brain power needed to create content and manage an online brand should be used on what really matters most to your business - building trust, relationships, and recurring profit.

Unexpected consequences

Create mental and physical pain

Starting a business takes a huge leap of faith, and we all know someone courageous enough to do it. Time and energy is often consumed by doing "digital things" leaving little for customer and experience you want to give.

High fail rate

Most personal business ventures (about 80%) fail before ever becoming profitable.

Opportunity cost

Time and money could be invested in something else that could have taken off.

No guarantee

Most freelancers will experience payment and other delays that will impact their day-to-day life.

Burnout

Self-employment is stressful and may lead to an unhealthy mental and physical wellbeing.

So we made Aliud
