But we’re always still trying to fill the top of the funnel and remarked to existing customers when there’s something new and exciting.”
- 29:29 – “Another strategy, and we tried this at Pelagic because Amazon just eats and your profits or whatever, and takes, 17 – 18% of everything. So what we did is we put all of our products on there, but we raised the price by 20%. So what it did was if we did sell anything, we basically made the same we made coming off our website, but also if the consumer would go back and look at our website they buy from us, because it was 20% cheaper.”
- 35:04 – “It’s really getting smart about how much you’re spending to operate your e-commerce business, and if you can strip it down just to the key things which is having a fast site, having inventory, and having really good creative timely messaging to drive the traffic you’ll win for the most part.”
