Getting to Know the Back-to-School Audience

Posted by Ngan Ton on Aug 7, 2018 9:45:00 AM

Back-to-school shopping is in full swing, and products are flying off the shelves—from pencils and notebooks to new shoes and shirts. Although this means mega retailers are scoring big on converting foot traffic, it doesn't necessarily mean online retailers have to miss out. Ecommerce businesses have the benefit of quickly adapting designs and products, and more importantly the shoppers they target.

How to Sell More Online This Father’s Day

Posted by Ngan Ton on May 21, 2018 9:00:00 AM

When it comes to revenue, Father’s Day lags behind Mother’s Day. One reason for the difference may be that Father’s Day shares the limelight with graduation celebrations that also occur in the month of June, causing many to split their gift budgets between dads and grads. Mother’s Day, on the other hand, is celebrated with little competition in the month of May.

How to Not Go To Trademark Jail and Still Become Rich

Posted by Ronnie McKenzie on Mar 20, 2018 9:30:00 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 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
