Having enjoyed travelling in various locations around the world, I got to taste and try variety of different products that I had never seen or tried before. For there were many that became my indisputable favorites, I found it rather difficult to accept less interesting choices back at home.
After years of sending informative recommendations to our local retailers about the products I believed could sell well that were not yet in their lists and providing variety of ideas to improve customer experience, a friend of mine advised me to make my own company.
This is where Eliviate OÜ got started. Now, with my own company, I could be more hands on, guarantee results better and be more informed as well as dedicated to what I am interested in.
By the time of founding the company, I had already started to take seasonal jobs in selling products at fairs around Estonia and Finland. The experience I have gained from this, has helped me to analyze, observe and understand different markets and selling tactics. Through it all, I have grown quite compassionate about selling and studying business in overall.
It has been the pure experience as an active salesperson as well as a customer, along with long hours of online studies about various types of businesses and strategies that has led me to start off with my own unique approach to the commonly dull, sometimes too agressive or distractions filled selling tactics. Providing solutions to potentially introduce a bit more humanly and fun ways to perform everyday errands.
Our Slogan - "Where experience comes first"
We have decided to be different from other import-export companies in our approach to importing, exporting, selling, local markets, end-customers and products choice. We do not believe in a theory that it is the product that either sells or not on a specific market and that it would be best to choose products that are already popular.
We excel in deep analyze, study and innovative approach, believing it is more about the "how?" and the "where?" and the "when?". For this reason, we see a need to not only handle import and export, but also do a limited, strategic retail selling and promotions. This serves as a valuable part when importing products that are still alien to the local market, but do have potential in terms of quality, design, practicality and deeper lying interests of the end-customers. Our tactics therefore, are rather rooted in the value of introduction experience before any sales deal.
