Welcome Back to the Newsletter!

We have a simple philosophy here at ePier: offer our valued members a fair and powerful online marketplace, and they will pass on the good word. And, sure enough, this philosophy has allowed us to weather the storm and succeed where other sites have failed. In fact, after seven years, our commitment to quality and value has allowed us to stand out in the crowd of online marketplaces.

Our buyers and sellers are our motivation, and the reason for our success. You tell us that no listing fees, no large upfront fees, and no commitments keep you coming back, time and time again.

We are dedicated to helping you build your business and success. We can’t believe it has been a year since our last newsletter, and we are truly excited to once again publish tips, tools, and ideas that will help you experience only the greatest success in your online marketplace endeavors!

We temporarily suspended the newsletter last year because, like every other aspect of ePier, we wanted to be able to provide you with the highest quality product available. Since then, we have regrouped and are back up and running and ready to supply you with all the information needed to build your business.

Our success rests solely on the success of our buyers and sellers, so it is with this belief that we begin to move forward once again into a positive future. We are proud to enjoy your company!

Exciting Improvements Continue to Develop at ePier

Building your online business can be a confusing process, filled with uncertainty and frustration. We understand this situation, and we continue to strive to provide you with all of the tools necessary to not only build your business, but build your business without the hassle and costs typically associated with other online marketplaces.

Efficiency and ease of use are certainly on the short list of what our customers are eager to find in an online marketplace. Beyond that, the cost of conducting business is always an issue, as this can ultimately determine your long-term bottom line and success.

We are proud to put these issues at the forefront when improving and updating our site. Quite frankly, if we can’t offer our customers an inexpensive, user-friendly and convenient way to conduct business, then we haven’t succeeded.

Over the summer, we dug in deep and found new and innovative ways to help you grow your business. Since then, we have begun developing the following:

• A New and Improved Search
• New and Improved Forums
• Improved Customer Management Tools
• Improved Favorite Seller Management Tools

We believe that to be a successful seller, you must have easy, convenient access to your customer information. Unlike other online marketplaces, we believe that open communication with your sellers is a smart way to increase your sales and improve customer service. This, along with several other innovative industry tools, is designed to maintain our position as a leader in online marketplaces.

Our success ultimately begins and ends with you. As we move forward and continue to develop new ways to make the process of building your business an easier and more affordable one, you can rest assured that our commitment to excellence is always our top priority.

Keeping it Simple – Our Unwavering Commitment in an Overly Aggressive Marketplace

You know the drill: an online marketplace lures you in with promises of low fees and policies, only to begin slowly raising their prices. Before you know it, the inflated promises and low fees are a thing of the past, and the only thing you’re left with is a shrinking profit margin and plenty of frustration.

Unlike many other online marketplaces, we don’t answer to shareholders. Simply put, we answer to you, the seller, and we work only for you, the seller. No shareholders influencing prices and dictating policies. And certainly no escalating prices and dwindling profit margins!

As a private company, our goal is to provide you with dependable value for a successful, long-term investment. We promise that our low fees and innovative tools will remain consistent and reliable. Because the last thing you need are unexpected – and unwelcome – surprises when you are in the midst of building your online business.

Our proven history of affordability and reliability, along with positive word of mouth, continues to trump overblown promises and tactics made by other online marketplaces.

If the best determination of future success is a proven history, then we have certainly proven ourselves, and continue to do so today, tomorrow and well into the future. We are proud to stand by YOUR side in helping to build your online business.

Yours Truly,
James Kim
