Are you ready to go viral ?
Yalllll ready for some tea. Lol I have a story for y’all.
One of my biggest tips to future business owners is to be ready to go viral! This is important, I can’t stress how important this is.
So most of you know the story of how I created ATH if you don’t here is the short version.
All Things Hair started about 5 or 6years ago. I started off with a page called all things hair for hair tips. I was also doing YouTube at the time. I was approached by a hair company that wanted to pay me to put out YouTube videos and wear there hair. I said yes. After a while I was over it and wanted something for myself. They were promoting me on their page and that helped me really build a following. So then I started All Things Hair the product line as my way out of working for this company. I created my first product and sold about 30 the day I released it. Then came Grow Me Crazy ! I created it within a week and was testing it for another week. Then the unexpected happened.
On February 27th 2015 I went viral. My product solid to over 1000 people in 12 hours. By the end of the day I had made 14,000 dollars. Excited as hell but never thought about what that meant for me as a business owner. I just knew that then I created something that was special and I was going great places.
Girllllllll. No. Okay ? Lol just no.
My ass was in trouble. I was selling my products under price. Yep. I didn’t have the body power to complete all those orders. And I didn’t have the supplies. I was struggling. Things started to get bad. I couldn’t keep up with my demand but I also couldn’t stop selling I had to make up for under selling. It was a huge mess. By the summer my customers were fed up. I had 36 BBB complaints and end up letting my mouth get me in trouble as always lol. I made a YouTube video saying the BBB can’t do nothing to me. 🤦🏾♀️ the bbb said awwwww ok Bitch.
On September 11th 2015. the bbb had issued a consumer alert on my business and called the local news to interview me. I absolutely hate talking about this. It makes me cringe. As I’m typing this I’m cringing. ( deep heavy sigh. ) it was so embarrassing. I was crying while the cameras were rolling. I wasn’t answering the questions well at all. I was just fucked. Worst day of my life.
But I learned so much from it.
I’m truly grateful for the experience in more ways than you know. People love to flip my news story or bring it up when to try and discourage me. I’m here to tell you that I’ve overcame that. I’ve flipped that to a very positive part of my testimony.
So there is the tea 😂 and the lesson. Hope you’re ready to go viral.
Why do you need a vendor list ? What is a vendor list? What do I do after I get the vendor list? These are questions I receive all the time.
So I’m going to explain it all so you guys can have a better understanding and start selling.
First things first ! What the hell is a vendor list? A vendor list is a list of names and contact information of reliable Hair, hair product, and clothing vendors. This list eliminates the middle man and gives you the direct contact to these vendors.
So let’s talk about why you need a vendor list ? You need a vendor list to help save time and money. It’s rare that you will just stumble upon a vendor that has the products that you want and need. When you’re selling a product and your getting it from overseas you have to make sure it’s meeting your standards. So there is a lot of testing that goes on with trying to make sure the product is consistent and a good quality product; and it ain’t free. This can be a very costly expense and very time consuming; which can cause your business to be on hold. So with already tested vendors, you have saved a lot of money and time.
So I have the list now what do I do? Once you get the list you can do a few things. First go ahead and contact the vendors on the list; wether through WhatsApp, email or website go ahead and contact them. Inquire there policy, there product pricing and shipping to see if they fit your needs. Second order the product and start using it. Have your friends and family start using it. Build up hype while your getting your name, logo, and website together. Last start selling, you can honestly start selling whenever you feel like it.
So I hope I’ve answered all of your questions about the list. Now there are a lot of people out there who sell vendor list. Before you buy make sure they can confirm the authenticity of the list.
My personal list is nothing but vendors I’ve used or currently using. I can show prof of me using the vendors if need be. Here is what’s included in the list I sell. 3 Chinese vendors that supply your Brazilian hair and etc, lace fronts and full lace wigs, 2 Raw Indian vendors, 1 Raw Cambodian Hair Vendor, 1 mink lash vendor, 3 hair product vendors, 3 makeup vendors, and 3 clothing vendors come with this list.
To make a serious inquiry about this list you can contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org
