Challenges Met & Conquered: A Case Study in Streamlining Operations
In 2019, Brand Expand and Spectrum BPO initiated a strategic partnership, focused on offering product giveaways for Amazon sellers. Their primary goal was to engage with top Amazon sellers, providing them with opportunities to enhance their business through Brand Expand’s services. During the initial phases, Brand Expand’s operations relied heavily on manual processes, predominantly using Google Sheets. Each seller launch required dedicated Google Sheets and numerous other spreadsheets to efficiently manage launch data for successful campaigns.
Team & Early Operations
At the outset, Brand Expand had a three-member team assigned by Spectrum BPO led by a Brand Manager delegating responsibilities to the team who acted as his assistant. To streamline task execution, Seth created instructional videos for various functions. Meanwhile, Dee served as the Buyer Team Manager, overseeing buyer team activities. Recognizing the need to expand the seller base, Seth devoted significant efforts to engaging with sellers to drive business growth.
Roles of Spectrum BPO (2019-2021)
A brand manager with a team was assigned to the client representing Spectrum BPO, juggled a diverse range of daily tasks:
- Launch Setup: This complex process involved setting up various giveaway promotion launches, such as add to cart, search find buy, search find compare buy, helpful votes, and add to wishlist. These campaigns required meticulous attention to detail and careful logic.
- Customer Support: The team provided customer support, engaging directly with clients to offer detailed information about services. This included sending Launch Start Emails and Launch Summary Emails, ensuring effective communication.
- Keyword Tracking: Our team monitored keyword performance for active launches, generating comprehensive reports and providing clients with valuable insights and recommendations to improve their keyword rankings.
- OAR (Order Accuracy Rate) Management: The team ensured the accuracy and quality of service delivery by checking the Order Accuracy Rate for each launch and reporting the results to Seth.
