Last month was a very unusual one for me.
A good friend of mine (Ryan Courteau) recently had a change in employment and was able to spend a day per week working with me. He has a sales background, so he’s been acting as a consultant on contract with an eye toward helping us increase sales on our e-commerce business.
Things have been a little slow over here due to the economy, so we decided to spend most of December making a new e-commerce site. It sells maid carts here.
Ryan and I worked our hearts out on this one. It really is a lot of work to populate all the data into an e-commerce site. Jason (my other co-worker) did a lot of the previous ones, so I had not done one in a while. It’s very time intensive.
All in all, 2009 was a financially tough year for a lot of people. Thankfully, by decreasing expenses, we were able to break even the last six months of 2009. Making the new site opens up another potential revenue stream for 2010, even if it was a ton of work.
