What readers say…
I am really passionate selling inspirational items for the home. I have been building my brand for 4 years now. I mainly used to sell at markets across the city. As a mother, I knew I wanted to move online so I wouldn’t have to worry about dragging my daughter along. Being able to consistently drive sales with Instagram after following your Process Notes has been a game changer for us.
Building a Vegan brand is all about credibility. Being able to share the products we care about is so much easier when someone who has got an engaged community recommends the products. It’s such a powerful process. We have been able to get amazing sales, much more than we anticipated would be possible. I haven’t had much marketing experience in the past so learning each step was important for me.
