WHY CHOOSE INDEPENDENT ECOMMERCE

49% of US Ecommerce sales

are controlled by Amazon, where sellers experience problems like counterfeit products from other sellers, Amazon copying products, and no direct contact with customers

90% of US Shoppers

say they would shop directly with a brand if possible. Branded websites are 2nd most-trusted advertising format, only following personal recommendations.

7x Less Expensive

to retain a customer than to acquire a new one. And when a customer shops directly with you, it’s possible to reach out to customers, unlike third-party marketplaces. 

The interesting thing about Amazon and how they’ve addressed obviously one of the biggest consumer needs, which is solving buying, is that in the process, in some ways, they’ve kind of killed shopping.

Connect Directly with Customers

When you sell via a standalone ecommerce shop, you’ll get a chance to build a direct connection with customers & fans

Remove 3rd Parties

Don’t let marketplace giants like Amazon and eBay control your business. Cut them out of the transaction process whenever possible. 

Build for the Long Term

With a standalone shop, your business can take full control of its brand and build a business best suited for the long run. 

DON’T LET BIG MARKETPLACES CONTROL YOUR BUSINESS

Big ecommerce marketplaces like Amazon control a huge chunk of online sales, yet hurt their own sellers by controlling the entire platform, limiting customer communication, and competing both directly and indirectly. We help independent businesses and brands build and grow thriving standalone ecommerce shops with direct connections to customers and fans for long term success.

We help independent businesses and brands build and grow thriving standalone ecommerce shops with direct connections to customers and fans for long term success.As longtime ecommerce sellers, we understand how difficult it can be to compete with big marketplaces, as well as how enticing it can be to put everything into third-party channels with existing customers. Unfortunately, we’ve learned both through our own experiences and the stories of many others, big ecommerce marketplaces don’t care about the independent businesses selling on their marketplaces.
