WhatsApp is gearing up to finally monetize its messaging app by charging large enterprise businesses for tools to better communicate with customers. Adam Smith ‘s book The Wealth of Nations, published in Great Britain in 1776, distinguished between the outputs of what he termed “productive” and “unproductive” labor. The former, he stated, produced goods that could be stored after production and subsequently exchanged for money or other items of value. The latter, however useful or necessary, created services that perished at the time of production and therefore did not contribute to wealth. Building on this theme, French economist Jean-Baptiste Say argued that production and consumption were inseparable in services, coining the term “immaterial products” to describe them.

I was selling online for a while on multiple platforms, but never really noticed a considerable growth. Fortunately, I was introduced to better methods and existing products like inventory storage service by the Prione team. The sales growth surpassed my expectation 6 times and it kept growing. I now drive 95% of my online sales through Prione’s support and the remaining 5% from the other platforms.
I had been observing the general buying trend for a while and realized I should start selling online. The industry seemed very promising with endless opportunities. My only apprehension was the onboarding process, but on the contrary, it was extremely easy. It only had one form to fill and a few documents to upload, after which all you had to do was list your products and start selling. It is encouraging to see that my constant effort of getting excellent products at good rates is leading to three times growth in sales online. My father had a dream to expand our business across the country and I am happy that I could make his dream come true. He would have been so proud of me today.
