My art, gifts and mostly jewelry designs have sold all over the world since 2000, mostly in trunk shows. Now I am trying to change from a traveling roadshow, a 1 person company, to a business, My inventory is large, intellectual property larger, and I am exploding with ideas for more. How do I find the right person who knows how to build a business, online and/or real world?
Kraig, when you use words and expressions like "business logic" "picture and product number" "then I could build your MVP APP right from that" etc. I can understand each word, but I am googling everything - - and that is how I just learned that MVP no longer means "Most Valuable Player" which shows you why your answers are teaching me how much I don't know and why I need partners for online even more than I thought!
As far as being scale-able, again - in terms of real world, production, etc. I have a proven track record. If that means something different online - - I have to learn.
Would you be willing to contact me for a conversation?
It seems as if, your business is prime for growing online. There are a few ways that you can strategically position, launch and channel or omni-channel the company credibility and exposure.
The top consideration is to reconnect to existing customers, to inform of online presence. This is the pre-launch stage. It is helpful to survey your existing buyers, also.
Feel free to call or contact, if there may be a need for help.
This site is confusing. I can't figure out how to answer Kenneth, but called the number and leaving thanks for the answer here.
Hey Jane, I believe Rogue StartUp can help. We become your CTO(Chief Technical Co-Founder) and get your product MVP. Check us out at roguestartup.com.
Okay, so I had a look at your site. The shopping list for men, is the best,,'startup' part of your site. That's business logic right there, if I had a picture and product number next to them I could build your MVP APP right from that.
If your serious, you need to be scale-able, that means taking away, your time as much as possible. You need a fulfillment system,customer management, and social media management.
Dear Jane, Please be careful. It is not rocket science to build an online cart. Shopify.com or something similar is a good place to start off. And don't get pulled into the scale routine yet. It will take a while for you to become an Amazon. The value of the business is in your designs and its uniqueness, the rest is more or less commodity. Please remember that when you speak to tech guys. Ideally seek advice from a family member or friend who has a basic idea of tech and take it from there.
I'm sorry. I went into techno nerd mode there. In that context it actually means minimum viable product. (what is the smallest part of the idea, you could implement and make a profit on. (I'm away and on my mobile at the minute) Happy to chat (email@example.com) business logic is how your company works that needs to be coded into your software. picture, I mean a picture/photo . (I am learning things too, I had to google to know what color perdot was). I believe the American term for product number is UPC, which will help with your google. search.
Hi Rogue Start-up - -
It's a bit weird answering a note to someone who didn't sign a name.... I looked at your site and you are way out of my budget at the moment. I do see we are neighbors both in NY where I live, and in Phila. where I grew up, and where I go often to see family.
Not sure where to go if your starting price is $2K
Ooops - silly me. I just saw you do equity, too. Contacting now.
I'm afraid I'm not in a position to work cheaply/free. if you can't do 2k a month, I'm probably not going to be able to help. Sorry and best of luck.
