When We Need a New Sofa?

Willowleaf sofa
Willowleaf sofa

Like our 4-paws partners, our sofa cannot accompany with us for a lifetime. Usually a sofa gives our body a comfortable support for 7-15 years. Quite a wide range, huh? So when is an appropriate time to replace it? Here are several things may help you to make up your mind.

  1. Hear squeaky sound when sitting on it. That means the structure of the sofa is not right. The frame may be broken anytime when a weight is added onto it.
  2. See wear or tear on the cover of cushions, either leather or fabrics. Be aware that the fillings or springs may come out and get messy.
  3. Find stains on covers. The stains not only affect the appearance of the sofa. They might encourage germs and parasites living in the sofa cushions.
  4. See fading colors. Over exposure to the sunshine or light of lamps can reduce the lifespan of a sofa. Changes on color is the visible sign of such a hurt.
  5. Notice the sofa disagreeing with other furniture or decorations at home. A recent renovation or replacement of other furniture may awkward the old sofa.

If any of above appears, a new sofa can be considered, especially at the season when promotions are available. Find better quality sofas that cannot be found at the chain furniture stores at the same and even lower prices. We all deserve high quality, long durability and reliable safety.

Adopt a Cost Efficient Online Solution for Your Business

Grow Your Online Sales
Grow Your Online Sales

Companies, like Home Depot and Lowes, have been growing their online sales significantly. What are you doing online now?

  • If you have started marketing and selling online,  are you okay with them?
  • If you have not started, what is your plan for it?

We list below the most often used ways adopted by home renovation and improvement businesses to explore online opportunities.  It may help you to know better about the pros and cons of each.

  • Own a website or an app – Around 2/3 showrooms we visited told us that they had a website.  Register a domain, hire someone to develop the website or app, update contents from time to time… All look like a piece of cake and you can proudly say you are online now.  Behind them, you have to pay for the domain every 12 months, you have to pay website design and maintenance fee, you have to do marketing to get traffic to your website, and you might have to hire a team to do the work.  Otherwise, just like 90%+ websites in this industry, only a very limited numbers visitors and most are not in your target area.
  • Sell on ebay, amazon, and etc.  – It’s good to share the high traffic on these major marketplaces. However, there are too noisy to get attentions. And they take a big bite from the sales. Usually the commission is more than 15% on the sales. And many hidden fees you are not aware of in advance. Limitations on product quantities and photos are strict.
  • List on free classifieds – many store owners told us they use Kijiji. However, only a few said it worked because you had to upload and refresh your contents frequently to stay on the top of the category. It takes a lot of time and efforts but only a few views. At the same time, competitors who pay for a placement on the category usually steal away the clicks.
  • Use paid advertising – you may have a good placement and display opportunity by adopting this. However, there is no guarantee on the return of your spending. And in most cases, large companies whose marketing budget is times of yours, will put you in a disadvantage in the competition.
  • Post on social media – true that social media can help you communicate with many others.  You can have a social media account in seconds. And then you can post contents or sell there. Alert here, CONTENTS.  Yes, you need to generate attractive contents proactively to get followers. It takes your time and efforts. And if you have a chance to read your followers, pay attention to their demographics and engagement. You may find most of them are not your target, same as those visitors to your website.

These traditional ways are either costly or inefficient to reach target customers online. Then, is there any cost efficient solution?

Taking this challenge as our mission,  we founded Our IT and marketing expertise, plus our long term experiences with Lean Production System, makes a cost efficient solution to business owners.

Seal, Clean & Light – 3 easy but important things for a safe & warm winter

A Warm and Safe Winter

“Stay warm, stay safe” is critical important for Canadians in winter times. Below 3 things can help you to live better in the winter.

1. Seal – Replace your windows or doors with low emissivity one.

Windows & Doors made of Low E 180 glass keep your home warm while preventing heat loss and allowing in natural light from outside during cold climates.

Filled with argon gas, they can provide better insulation, preventing frost from occurring at the bottom and increasing sound proofing characteristics.


2.Clean – Hire professionals for air duct cleaning.

Clean and fresh indoor air is crucial to winter health, especially when someone in your family has asthma, allergies or respiratory problems. Before keeping your furnace running for months, let a certified professional technician to clean all ducts in your house.

Why Your Website Don’t Bring Customers to You?

Many companies in home renovation told us that they had websites to help their business online. Curiously, we visited their websites and checked the performance with Alexa Rank services.

Unbelievable, we found that 90%+ have extremely low traffics and 95%+ even have no ranks in Canada.  Below is a very common result in our search work.

A Common Website Performance of Small Home Renovation Business
A Common Website Performance of Small Home Renovation Business

You may have some ideas now why your website did not bring customers to you. There are only a few visitors. And among those a few, most are not in your neighborhood.  If you are hiring someone to help your website, please remind the guy to do something. Otherwise, your money is wasted.

The top reason of such low performance is No Strong Online Marketing Support. Most small businesses do not have this specific function in their organization. And it’s costly to outsource the work. However, it does affect the return on your IT investment.

To help small business in home renovation do better online, we developed UWeX Marketplace with our expertise on marketing and LEAN Production. No matter you are a retailer, wholesaler, manufacturer, or professional service provider, we provide you a free online showroom and help you to do marketing and sales., though freshly launched, has get traffics quickly with almost 100% of our visitors are local. In past 2 weeks, our Alexa rank in Canada has been moved from 48,758 to 16,287. And we are still up. And we achieve all these without spending much on advertising.

We understand every cent should be paid meaningfully. We guarantee our members “No gain, No Pay”.  Members pay us commission on sales only. And our commission rate is much lower than the majority because we control our own cost strictly with Lean thinking.

We sincerely encourage you to consider these new online business model, where you can focus on your own strength and leave others to us.

Together, we are building the ultimate home renovation experiences.

Adding Product to UWeX Shop (III) – Adding a Simple Product

Simple product type covers the vast majority of any products you may sell. Simple products are shipped and have no options. For example, a faucet.

Access the Add New Product page and type in the product name and description in the specified boxes.


Below the description editor box, you see the Product Data meta box.

The Product Data meta box is where the majority of important data is added for your products.  Select the Simple Product in the panel by scrolling down the options on the top.



General section 

  • SKU – Stock keep unit (SKU) tracks products.
  • Price – Price your product here buy using Regular Price.   If you wanna go a promotion, you can use Sale Price.
    • Regular Price – Item’s normal/regular price.
    • Sale Price – Item’s discounted price that can then be scheduled for certain date ranges.


Inventory section

The inventory section allows you to manage stock for the product individually and define whether to allow back orders and more.


Just of note, ticking the Sold Individually checkbox limits the product to one per order.

Shipping section


  • Weight – Weight of the item.
  • Dimensions – Length, width and height for the item.
  • Shipping Class – Shipping classes are used by certain shipping methods to group similar products.

Linked Products section

Using up-sells and cross-sells, you can cross promote your products. They can be added by searching for a particular product and selecting the product from the dropdown list:


Up-sells are displayed on the product details page. These are products that you may wish to encourage users to upgrade, based on the product they are currently viewing. For example, if the user is viewing the laminate product listing page, you may want to display hardwood on that same page as an up-sell.

Cross-sells are products that are displayed with the cart and related to the user’s cart contents. As an example, if the user adds a Nintendo DS to their cart, you may want to suggest they purchase a spare stylus when they arrive at the cart page.

Attributes section

On the Attributes tab, you can assign details to a product. Once you have chosen an attribute from the select box, click add and apply the terms attached to that attribute to the product. You can hide the attribute on the frontend by leaving the Visible checkbox unticked. Custom attributes can also be applied by choosing ‘Custom product attribute’ from the select box. These are added at the product level and won’t be available in layered navigation or other products.


Add a short product description. This typically appears next to product imagery on the listing page, and the long description appears in the Product Description tab.



On the right-hand side of the Add New Product panel, there are product categories in which you can place your product. You can also assign product tags in the same way.


Product images

You can add a main image and a gallery of images on the right part of the panel. (see the bottom part of the above picture.)
