    Hello,

    I am currently helping out my relative looking to sell their service/product in Australia market. We are a footwear manufacturer company based in South East Asia and would like to find prospect clients who would like to produce their shoe’s label with us.

    I am considered new in the business (and marketing!!), and would like to get some views from anyone here re. where should I start?

    Are there any minor/major events held regularly who most Australian retailers attend to? Are there any high traffic online forum in Australia who facilitates prospect buyers and manufacturers to meet up?

    Cheers

    Hello John and welcome,

    Facebook is a very popular market place in Australia for buying and selling goods.

    https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook/the-marketplace-is-open/2383962130/

    This is just one example , others include shopify, eBay, amazon, and Twitter to name a few.

    Let me know if I can help.

    I set up ecommerce businesses regularly.

    Hi John,
    I’ve heard of this group http://www.onlineretailer.com/ that may be of interest. It focuses on the digital side of retail, but that increasingly is becoming more central to any retail.
    All the best with the business.
    Cheers, Peter

    Hi John ,

    Personally no. But I do know a gymnasium owner in Melbourne. He might have contacts in that field.

    I have a long time family friend who was a Kmart department store manager many years ago too.

    I would be interested in hearing more. We have smaller clients looking to source footwear.
    The international sourcing expo has a Footwear component to the trade show. Check that out. https://www.internationalsourcingexpo.com
    If you have an actual collection of footwear and want a wholesale / retail focussed show then you might look at: http://www.fashionexposed.com
    http://melbourneretailfestival.com.au

    Hope this helps.
