As owner of Hoodiezz.com. I have figured out that the hardest thing to starting a successful business is gaining momentum. Our idea is solid. We sell an assortment of hoodies from different advertisers and there is a huge market for hoodies across the United States and the World. We have two different ways to make money. We either make money from the sales of our hoodies, or from the complimenting advertisements associated with our hooded sweatshirts. Our Business Model is solid.
Honestly our problem lies within building our clientele. Can a company sustain enough funding to successfully advertise, and turn first time visitors into return visitors, returning visitors into paying customers, paying customers into loyal customers, and loyal customers into walking advertisements.
To achieve all this selling a hoody isn’t the only problem. We have to get the message out about our product to interested individuals, convince these individuals to frequently visit our website, stay in contact with our hoody advertisers and make sure their products are showing correctly, so that one day when that visitor we fought to get decides to buy a hoodie from us, the hooded sweatshirt they want from us is actually available.
All of this work takes constant dedication, and I’m not going to lie. Somedays this work feels exhausting, and others it doesn’t feel like work at all. But when the numbers going out don’t match the numbers coming in. That can be devastating to your confidence (This is only true when the numbers going out are higher than the numbers coming in. That means your not selling any hoodies, and your like “what the hell man”.)
So in all honesty what stops me from giving up on my company, is my faith in Jesus Christ. Having a strong faith in God gives a person enough confidence to know that no matter how large the obstacle, they can over come it, because they have the almighty god on their side (I know that this is the case for me). People are going to fail me, money is going to fail me and come up short, but my God is never going to fail me. And in Jesus’ name I can boldly say that if He is for me nothing can be against me, and my business will be more successful than I can ever imagine.
So with that faithful spirit I press on, I say “Lord Jesus please lead me.” I throw on my hoodie, and press on.
