Turning a passion into profit online
Daphne realized she had tons of knowledge and experience in hiking and camping that could be really useful. She thought about how she could help people enjoy their time outdoors more. Maybe you’ve heard about Sarah Doughlass and her booming Amazon business that made millions. Well, Daphne knew that this area could be really rewarding.
She understood that her hands-on experience gave her a real edge in the market. She knew the ins and outs of hiking, those little details that only a real hiker would know, putting her a step ahead of many companies in the field.
Launching a store and earning $44,897!
Daphne kicked off her online store, loading it with stuff she believed every hiker needed – like tents, knee wraps, and bottles – the basics! She also kicked off a blog on Instagram, pulling in folks who loved the outdoors just as much as she did, and soon, she had a big online group of hiking fans.
“In just 7 months, I pulled in $44,897! That’s more than enough to cover Chris’s college and then some. I’m all in to grow my brand and connect with more people who are just as into outdoor stuff as I am. Plus, I’m looking to toss in more products and give my customers more bang for their buck.”
Daphne sparked more sales by asking her customers to share snaps and clips of them using her gear. This user-created content ramped up her brand’s visibility and trust. She threw in discounts, free stuff, or shoutouts to her regulars as a thank you.
The cool stuff Daphne sells online
“I know what outdoor lovers really need, so selling and marketing them is a breeze for me!” Daphne says.
For instance, only someone who hikes would get how much your knees can hurt after a day of hitting the trails. So, Daphne decided to sell knee wraps and even started chatting about them on her Instagram, sharing why they’re a game changer and how to use them right.
Here’s a peek at what you can find in her store:
- Sleeping Bags that trap heat and work even in super cold and extreme conditions.
- Knee Wraps to keep everything in place when you’re out conquering mountains and hills.
- Foldable Water Bottles, because every hiker knows they’re essential!
So, wondering how Christian, only 9 months old, already has his college fund sorted? Easy!
In just the last 7 months, Daphne’s store has earned $44,897! Daphne found a way to support her son and do what she loves, leaving her feeling happy and satisfied. Just like that!
