Manufacturer

A manufacturer creates physical products and sells them to the consumer directly, either through a live salesperson, a website, or through a broker. As the manufacturer, you own the products until they are purchased by the end user. In this type of business model, United Arab Emirates toll free numbers could be very useful in several ways. You could use them to contact leads, you could use them in overseas advertising campaigns and for customer service inquiries, and you could also use them to talk to clients if you are importing parts or labor to manufacture your products.

Direct Sales

If your company is based on the direct sales model, you will be bringing in revenue by means of a network of salespeople who have direct contact with the public. You may or may not have a fixed location. You can make very good use of United Arab Emirates toll free numbers with this type of business. You can use them to help generate new leads, and to make it easy for overseas customers to contact you for support, or with questions.

Intellectual Property Trader

If you’re an intellectual property trader you are most likely involved with buying and selling intangible assets such as patents, copyrights, mobile apps, domain names, digital currencies, or trademarks. Finding buyers and sellers can be tricky and making transactions can be costly, but this is another business model where United Arab Emirates toll free numbers can give you the opportunity to branch out to new areas and new customers who are looking to invest in intellectual property.

Franchise

Within this model, the business owner buys and runs another company’s business model as an offshoot of the main company or corporation. Instead of manufacturing a new product, the franchisee buys a stake in an already successful business. Under this type of business model, United Arab Emirates toll free numbers would be of little value because your customer base would be local to your franchise.

Wholesaler/ Retailer

This type of business model involves a company which purchases and sells physical products as they are. Because wholesalers/retailers bring together a range of products from different manufacturers, United Arab Emirates toll free numbers could be an advantage if you want to give yourself a virtual presence overseas and expand your customer base.

Bricks-and-Clicks

This type of business model has both an online presence and a physical store, allowing customers the option to purchase their items online and pay for delivery, or to order online and collect the items at the brick-and-mortar store.
