Today I’ve got Terry Lin on the show from BuildMyOnlineStore.com. Terry recently quit his job, moved to Vietnam, and is now working on building his own ecommerce brand, Baller Leather. He’ll tell you more about himself and his business, but Terry and I discuss a couple of really important topics that I think you’ll enjoy hearing about.
First, you’ll hear how Terry got a brand new product designed, got a sample of the product made, and the first run of 150 units manufactured for less than $2,000. But even more exciting, we’ll be talking about how Terry got pre-orders that covered the entire cost of manufacturing that first run. You’ll also hear about how he’s marketing the site by reaching out to bloggers in his niche in order to build awareness, traffic, and sales.
