How I Grew My E-Commerce Business From 0-$100K in Less Than 4 Months

Over the past 10 years, I've been a part of at least that many startups. The tools of the trade have changed rapidly, but the core elements of successful entrepreneurship remain relatively unchanged. When I was first starting out, "social media marketing" was a brand new concept and existed almost entirely on Myspace. Now entrepreneurs have a slew of tools to amplify their brand and grow their e-commerce revenue, but it's easier than ever to get lost in the noise. As a consultant to numerous brands and a company founder, I can tell you success isn't easy, but it is attainable. By following the right steps, I was able to grow Startup Drugz from zero to US$100,000 in less than four months with the use of Facebook marketing and automated sales funnels. After six months, I was hitting a $500K run rate. By taking the following steps, you'll be well...

Promofarma experiments with one-hour delivery

Spanish pharmacy network Promofarma wants to deliver products to customers a lot faster than it currently does and is thus testing one-hour delivery. The new service will initially start only in Spain, but expanding to other countries in Europe is something they are thinking about. In the future, Promofarma wants to deliver products to consumers in just one hour. The ecommerce website, which has a network of 500 pharmacies across the country, is now experimenting with this service in Spain, where it was acquired by Zur Rose Group two months ago.

He thinks the logistics service would also be possible and conceivable in Germany. So far, DocMorris delivers medication usually 24 hours after an order has been placed. Expansion...

Holiday Marketing for Fashion and Lifestyle Merchants

When should holiday marketing begin? To me, holiday marketing should never stop. If that’s not feasible, finalize a holiday marketing plan as early as possible. It should address inventory, packaging, and preparing the website and physical location(s). It should also include plans for customer acquisition and retention, with calendars, promotions, and creatives. Here is my holiday marketing to-do list for fashion and lifestyle merchants. Website Marketing, Optimization Create or update holiday landing pages. An online merchant should have holiday-related pages all year. The more you update them, the higher they show in search results year after year. Generate holiday-related content. Downloadable guides and ebooks. For example, holiday wardrobe ideas, recipes, and decoration tips. Consider information that shoppers would otherwise pay for, but you provide for free, such as how to become your own stylist or fitness trainer. The key is to publish content that consumers want and need.Holiday-themed how-to videos.Holiday-related...
