Topic: “Live Shopping: The Game-Changer for E-commerce Businesses”
Special guest: Oscar Bjørn-Rosager
In the ninth episode of the Markademics podcast, we are welcoming our next guest Oscar Bjørn-Rosager, who is going to share more about his expertise on live shopping through his brands CYKOM and isolés.
Who is Oscar Bjørn-Rosager?
Oscar Bjørn-Rosager is 26 years old and the CEO & Founder of CYKOM. The Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe honoree from 2021 founded the business when he was just 19 and has ever since been taking the cycling community by storm. The main idea of CYKOM is to buy and sell the official bikes of the Tour de France teams and sell them to their customers in more than 80 countries. CYKOM is the official supplier of Tour de France Merchandise and official team jerseys. Lastly, CYKOM is hosting the official webshops of several Tour de France and pro cycling teams. Today CYKOM has between 20 and 30 employees, depending on the season.
Oscar has found a powerful strategy to boost traffic and sales for his online stores: live-shopping events. These captivating virtual experiences engage his audience and create excitement around his products.
To ensure success, Oscar follows a step-by-step approach. He carefully selects the products for the event, creates a Facebook live-shopping event with exclusive offers, and promotes it beforehand to generate interest. He invites potential customers and runs targeted ads for wider reach.
During the live-shopping event, Oscar emphasizes limited product quantities to create urgency. This compels shoppers to act quickly and secure their desired items. He also hires a professional video agency to showcase products beautifully and provide all the necessary details and special discounts, ensuring a delightful shopping experience.
