“We are heartened by the tremendous efforts that thousands of local sellers have poured into our Epic 10 Contest, and the outcomes they have achieved as a result. Engagement activities such as this is one of the ways to encourage our sellers to optimize the seller tools available on Lazada, so that they can easily upgrade their online store and engage more customers to boost sales. For both new and existing sellers, our team is here to support them with hands-on guidance. Lazada would like to welcome more local sellers and MSMEs to join us and kickstart their digital journey,” says Darren Rajaratnam, Chief Operating Officer, Lazada Malaysia.
The Grand Prize winners, Aisha Mohamad Ibrahim of Tudung Viral 01 online store and Tan Ee Vian, owner of BeautéRider online store celebrated their win at the Lazada Visitor Center. “I was so excited to find out that I’m one of the Grand Prize winners. My husband and I co-manage our e-store and this contest made the tasks of upgrading our online store into something fun,” said Aisha. Tan Ee Vian added, “The guidance, support and tools provided by the team under Lazada University were some of the key factors that helped me to be a better seller and improve my online business. This contest was unique and I’m glad that I took a chance to enter, and now I get to bring home my own Vespa.”
