My name is Rondi Kutz and I am the owner/creator of Desert Trybe- Affordable Fashions and Finds for Free Spirits! Basically, selling trendy boho fashion accessories, jewelry, and clothing.
I decided to try my hand at an online shop in May when I lost my job. I am a designer, so I took the opportunity of down time, combined with my design experience to see what I could create!
I love fashion and on-line shopping for clothes, so when I found out about drop shipping through aliexpress and saw all the fun fashions that I would buy available to put in my own on-line store I was hooked!
I spent about 3 full weeks designing, building, filling my shop with all of the thing that I love. I bought the domain from Shopify and set up an email ( I think that may have been the most complicated part ;) I created a pinterest account, a facebook account, an instagram account and a twitter account.
I created a custom logo and header.
I use oberlo/aliexpress to supply the store. I have installed kit to help with marketing ( Very helpful!) I have installed mcafee secure, and contact form plus. That's about it for apps.
I launched the store the first part of June (2017) about 1 month ago. I had a few bugs that needed to be worked out- it was definitely a learning experience, but got it all worked out and running smoothly. I haven't done a lot of marketing yet- I did a few minimal paid ads on facebook- Although I've only had a few sales, I know there is huge potential there!...
The only problem is that I got a job and am now too busy to get it going! It is a great start and I know that in the right hands will be a great investment!
I wish I had had more time to really do the marketing and get it going! I've done all the hard work, I hope someone can take it and do something great!
