E-Commerce with Alison J Prince
Aaron: Your girls sold over 100K when they were 10 and 13? How? And while they were in school to boot!
Terry: How do you and your girls get your ideas of products to sell
Aaron: You have some great blogs on your site. Tells us a couple of things you love selling and a couple of people should stay away from?
Terry: Our listeners are custom garment and product decorators. Talk to us about how you would approach the marketplace with these products.
Terry: Why the focus on e-commerce over say a brick and mortar or craft fairs or other non-online selling methods?
Aaron: I’ve talked to a lot of small businesses over the course of my career and a common thread I have seen is people getting it started, maybe without a real plan and finding that nothing sticks for them. What’s your best piece of advice for them?
Terry: Do you have to have a big social following to sell products online?
Aaron: Tell us more about the “BECAUSE I CAN” Clan.
Terry: Where can people go to find out more about you and become involved in your community.
Alison J Prince has built 4 successful multimillion dollar online businesses. She’s been featured in Forbes, Costco Connection and spoken on the stage of funnel Hacking Live, but she feels her most successful business choice was teaching her 10 and 13-year-olds how to sell over $100,000 in 9 months and watching them crush the online space.
