Online ecommerce store in the meditation/mala bracelets niche (own brand)


Key Achievements:

- Started from $5 per day in adspend on Facebook and Google to $641,149 in sales in the first year, with an advertising spend of $262,293

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.

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

Colorado Limited

The client had a hard time figuring out which products were bestsellers and how to put them in front of the right audience.

$200K

New ARR

Circle

I worked with Circle specifically on affiliate partnership projects, email marketing campaigns, and online event management. As worthwhile as the experience was to assist Circle with these tasks, I still (like many) faced a few challenges.


One of those unique challenges was ongoing communication and consistent alignment when it came to back-to-back online events that took place throughout the Fall 2022 season. This caused a level of organization and attention to detail needed to sustain the work to make multiple online events successfully happen simultaneously. Because of that challenge, I learned to leverage putting structure and automated systems into place in order to carry out each task to ensure a smooth client and event attendee experience.

ROAS

CoRevival

The client created a comfy face mask and wanted to quickly bring it to the mass market via Amazon. Even though they were quite familiar with how Amazon works, they wanted to be sure to give their product the BEST possible chance at success – especially in such high competition and a high volume market! So they decided that investing in a team of Amazon marketing Pro’s was the way to go. (great choice;)

Samsonite

Samsonite had a CRM database of customers but had not sent an email in over 6 months. They were looking for a fresh approach for its email marketing program to re-engage and nurture current and new customers. The challenge was to establish a new strategy and approach that would improve email open rates and click through rates to ultimately increase its ecommerce sales for its travel bags, luggage and accessories.
