When it comes to selling stuff online, you got to be creative to get the attention of your target market. Competition can be intense out there, so small online sellers need to up their game and make the most of the limited resources they have.
This woman from the Philippines recently went viral online after using humor to attract buyers. Apparently, she sells clothes but does not have her own model. So, she came up with a smart solution!
An online businesswoman from the Philippines recently grabbed netizens’ attention after posting her products on Facebook. Since she does not own a mannequin, she used her sleeping husband as her model.
When you do not have a dummy but you gotta hustle.
Jocelyn May Jazareno Caday, who owns and runs Jo’s Online Shoppe, turned to her sleeping husband for assistance when she required to take photos of her merchandise. She placed the dresses, skirts, pants, and everything else on top of him and snapped away while he was dozing off.
She eventually uploaded the hilarious images on her Facebook page and wrote, “No mannequin? No problem! Effort is the key, sisters!” in the caption.
Much to her surprise, the post went viral on social media, gaining thousands of shares and reactions from netizens everywhere. As if that was not enough, several global news sources also picked up the funny story.

Naturally, netizens could not help but laugh and praise the seller’s “marketing strategy” simultaneously. Many also remarked that it looks like the shop has some nice clothes.
Well, we just hope the viral post leads to more buyers, so all the effort will be worth it.
