Challenge: scale while sustaining a ROI of 4x or higher, stand out from competition in a very busy industry, and grow a large online community of engaged followers


Note: I was a co-owner of Mindyana, which puts me and my team in the unique position of understanding the meditation and fashion jewelry industry from A to Z: building market share, creating a brand in this space, leveraging social media to create a tribe of loyal customers, utilizing Facebook and Google advertising to profitably bring in online sales, optimizing the online website (front end and back end), supplier challenges, customer service challenges and beyond. We have successfully sold Mindyana and we are no longer owners of brands in this niche, but our passion lies in helping other businesses in this industry be successful and scale. We have helped 3 other brands in this industry achieve $1M+ annual revenue in less than 3 years since then.

The Process

I was a co-owner of Mindyana, which puts me and my team in the unique position of understanding the meditation and fashion jewelry industry from A to Z: building market share, creating a brand in this space, leveraging social media to create a tribe of loyal customers, utilizing Facebook and Google advertising to profitably bring in online sales, optimizing the online website (front end and back end), supplier challenges, customer service challenges and beyond. We have successfully sold Mindyana and we are no longer owners of brands in this niche, but our passion lies in helping other businesses in this industry be successful and scale. We have helped 3 other brands in this industry achieve $1M+ annual revenue in less than 3 years since then.


My co-owner and I built this brand from inception to successful selling. We were involved in all aspects of building and scaling this business:



  • developing and optimizing our online store
  • launching and managing Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Google ads
  • building an email marketing list and monetizing it every week
  • leveraging social media platforms to build our branding and trust
  • handling all aspects of supplier relations
  • handling PR and reputation management

ROAS

ScrapGo

A very vague search behavior by the persona makes it harder to get super targeted with the keywords we use, so we had to get creative with how we qualified the lead on every step of the funnel. There are also tight margins with the trucks that we buy and sell.

This innovative cakery opened a Shopify to drive custom cake orders and cakes in a jar couriered nationwide as dessert or given as a great surprise gift!


The client tried to run Facebook and Google ads themselves to promote their store and drive online orders. They soon realised they didn't know what they were doing - nor had the time to learn and experiment.
