Posted by Ngan Ton on May 16, 2018 8:00:00 AM

A common approach store owners make when pricing their products is relying solely on numbers set by competitors. It’s a strategy that may work for some, but it’s a missed opportunity for most.

Social Media Platforms To Use In 2018

Posted by Robert Joseph on May 4, 2018 8:42:41 AM
Humans are generally social beings. However, work and our physical location often makes it difficult to meet with those we care about in person. This goes for meeting new people and establishing new friendships as well.

Luckily in this day and age, we have the ability to reach out to someone and say hello from the privacy of our own homes using smart devices like phones, tablets, and computers.

It’s estimated that by the end of 2018, there will be a whopping 2.6 billion users across the many social sites and apps we have available today.

Posted by Robert Joseph on Mar 28, 2018 12:54:05 PM

I have been focusing on the branding component of my marketing efforts like a madman this year.

It’s always important to keep consistent branding, from your products to your customer service responses. This goes far beyond throwing your logo on everything.

I’m going to take you through some digital branding trends that are making an impact so that you can test them out for yourself. These trends will keep your brand relevant in the digital space.

Let’s get into it.

How to Not Go To Trademark Jail and Still Become Rich

Posted by Ronnie McKenzie on Mar 20, 2018 8:30:00 AM

I’ve been there. After an incredibly tough year, I was forced to start in the following January of 2014, debt up to my eyeballs, credit cards maxed out, debt collectors and suppliers on the phone constantly harassing me - and rightfully so...

I owed them the better part of $120,000 and I was scrambling for ideas on how I could quickly pay everyone back. Sleep was difficult at best. The last thing I wanted was to go bankrupt, and I sure as hell didn’t want to go to jail for insolvent trading. These thoughts constantly clouded my mind, and I was often waking up to them at 3am in the morning.

Going bankrupt was always an option but it personally felt like quitting, and no entrepreneur worth their salt quits, certainly not the successful ones. So I kept going, fielding those calls and reassuring those whom I owed money to that I would soon pay them back, with interest. Hustling was my only option– getting in before the sun rose and not going to bed until the early hours of the morning became the norm.

According to one of the many quotes I’d mentally archived, “Opportunity and luck comes to those who work for it.” This was the motivation that kept me showing up.

If you want to know who I am, you can check out an article I wrote on my blog at Storehacks.com. I’ve been lucky enough to have sold millions of dollars of products over the past few years and met some incredible people, like the guys and girls at GearLaunch.com.
