My Names: Kevin Thibault,
I’m the Founder/Owner/CEO, and General Manager of the Bradford LifeStyles E-commerce website. What this fundraising campaign is all about.
This fundraising campaign is about a hand up rather than a handout; And what I hope will be a “WIN, WIN, WIN” for all involved and who contribute.
We’re looking to raise funds needed to Renew and Upgrade our site. We recently downgraded from a fully functional E-commerce site to a personal blog to stay online. All start ups are a tough gin regardless of the industry ours being no different. The fast-competitive e-commerce market likewise is the same. We’ve had little traffic volume and even less in sales but have managed to stay alive and maintain a presence on the web for five years now. We’re looking to turn that around and grow our presence and expand. Your contributions will help fund that.
In Exchange for contributions we will offer an Equal or Greater monetary value in savings off the MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) on Everything we sell, Free site memberships, and other potential $$ benefits that may arise as the site grows and matures.
I hope this endeavor will flourish and bloom into money making opportunities for site members and contributors alike as the company grows.
This Campaign’s more of an investment and hand up; than it is a handout and everyone reaping and sharing the harvest, benefits, and rewards of our sowings. Campaign Structure and Timeline.
This campaign will be ongoing and broken down into several small goals that will be implemented, when enough funds become available.
All contributions will be used for financing some of the following legal and other basic business needs and necessities.
· Upgrading the Website to a fully functional E-commerce site from our current basic plan offered by our host.
· Legal fees (e.g. State and local Licensing and permits etc.
· Establishing a Physical Place of Business to operate our ecommerce website and conduct standard business practices from.
· Basic Startup costs for web engineering, site design layout and maintenance costs e.g.
· Marketing Costs and Advertising cost’s (This is where the opportunities open, for contributors and site members to capitalize on donations)
· Site Security and maintenance costs
· Just to Name a FewThe first order of affairs will be
upgrading the website plan with our host again to a fully functional E-commerce website. The estimated cost of this is approximately $1,000. - $2,000. (There are various plans and options)
Once re-established I will begin other fundraising campaigns to address the legal mumbo jumble, doting all the I’s and crossing all the T’s. (the current business structure is and has been operating online for the past five years as a Sole Proprietorship and its upgrade entity has not yet been established (e.g. Corporation vs. LLC.) I’m leaning toward an LLC. Taking a closer look
I Truly think what I have in mind may just, not only revolutionize E-commerce as we now know it, but will also level the playing field, and open up new e-commerce markets That will create new monetizing opportunities and cash flow advantages for individuals and local businesses alike allowing them to compete and profit in the E-commerce, retail and whole sale arena and marketplace.Like what you’ve read so far?
