Live shopping robot is a hit: newly started company supports shops in their million of sales

All key figures keep rising for ELISA, by Easy Live Sales, who offer a robot to assist shops making live sales on social media platforms.

Since early this year, the two owners – Nikolai Aas Pedersen and Christian Degn Vester – have been busy welcoming new users.

Grown from a simple idea for a business to survive COVID-19, this hybrid way of selling is now used by many shops – ‘they all have great success, and the variety of businesses is impressive’ says Christian Vester.

Live Shopping exploded during the COVID-19 restrictions. But this is just the beginning of a new, long-lasting trend

The closing of retail stores really set motion in the liveshopping phenomena during 2020 and 2021.

But the closeness, professionalism and experience that lies in live shopping is unique and can redefine the way we shop for the benefit of the local shops.

But brands can also benefit greatly from jumping on the live train, according to an expert.

Live Sales are booming on Facebook - The COVID-19 closure changed shopping as we knew it

Between 600 and 1,500 people watch each time Helm is live, and in a single evening they can sell the equivalent of revenue of up to five regular days in February.

For the same reason, the live sales are not going to end just because the physical store can now open on Monday.

Nikolai explains with a certain seriousness in his voice how he got the idea for Easy Live Sales.

“My mother is self-employed. She runs a café, and when the corona hit in 2020, it became difficult for her to continue. Since she has no other online presence than Facebook, we went together as a family with the purpose of helping her sales ”.

During the shutdown, live shopping became the new attraction for stores with locked front doors.
