Now is a great time to be in menswear eCommerce. Men are shopping for clothes more than ever before.
Quartz attributes this phenomenon to the rise of the new male fashion consumer, as well as the lumbersexual, #menswear, and athleisure trends.
Whatever the cause, we thought we’d look at four WooCommerce businesses aiming their sights at menswear eCommerce.
With WooCommerce businesses scattered all over the world, it’s not often I get to do an interview in person. But this is an entrepreneur story that could only come from San Francisco.
Last week I spoke Dandelion Chocolate founder Todd Masonis, at their factory location in San Francisco’s Mission District.
After selling their consumer internet business to Comcast in 2008, Todd and business partner Cameron went down a path of experimentation and discovery that eventually led them into the business of fine, small batch chocolate making.
Read on to learn more of Dandelion Chocolate’s unique story.
Spring is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere (or almost upon us if you follow the astronomical season) and you know what that means… It’s almost wedding season!
WooCommerce provides an excellent platform for wedding businesses—from the edible to the aesthetic, from the conventional to the quirky—to sell their products and services online.
Let’s check out a small collection of wedding website examples built with WordPress and WooCommerce.
Royce Reed has taken his passion for healthy pets and harnessed the power of WooCommerce to build his pet food subscription business, Alpha Dog Food.
I had the pleasure of chatting to Royce last week about his experience starting and running Alpha Dog Food. Some of the highlights include: how they’ve implemented their Ambassador (affiliate) program, which benefits Alpha Dog Food and many of their clients, including great animal charities like the Humane Society of Atlantic City; Royce’s seven favourite things about WooCommerce (we agree Royce, it’s so hard to choose!); and how Alpha Dog Food wound up accepting Bitcoin payments, and Royce’s experience with that so far.
I hope you enjoy reading this interview as much as I enjoyed doing it!
If you are an artist, one thing you might want to think about is setting up a website to showcase—and potentially sell—your work.
You could also consider using your expertise to offer online art courses and/or creative mentorship, or booking out your available time for in-person lessons.
If all of this sounds good to you—and you’re looking for a bit of inspiration—below are four examples of art websites using WooCommerce to power their online businesses.
Bryce Adams is a WooThemes ninja who—in his spare time—built a handy little SaaS (Software as a Service) business called Nomad SMS.
Nomad SMS allows you to easily create a local phone number in over 15 countries and receive SMS messages to that number in your inbox and online. Anybody who’s had the frustrating experience of being locked out of their bank account while traveling or overseas will see the benefit of this simple idea.
Bryce got some love from WooThemes and others on Twitter for Nomad SMS, but when it was featured on the hot product aggregation site Product Hunt, traffic to Bryce’s little side project really took off.
Bryce was kind enough to talk to me about the whirlwind experience of building Nomad SMS in three days—using WooCommerce and Subscriptions—and releasing it to the world.
Flex Foods prepares restaurant-quality, healthy meals to be delivered to their customers’ homes in Tallahassee and Jacksonville on a daily basis.
Last week I had an interesting conversation with Stacey Reinstein, one of the co-owners of Flex Foods.
I learned all about what it’s like to run a local food delivery business using a subscriptions-based online store.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to cut back to one coffee per day.
I’ll be honest with you, so far it sucks.
If you’re trying to do something similar, perhaps a switch to tea might ease the transition? (I sure hope so).
Luckily, a bunch of savvy entrepreneurs are using WooCommerce to sell tea online and spread the word about the health benefits of tea.
Although the price of bitcoin might be tanking (today it fell below the $200 mark for the first time since October 2013), there is still plenty of momentum building in Bitcoin, as both a technology and a movement.
Another technology that has momentum of its own? WooCommerce, of course.
So to reflect the nexus of these two growing movements, we thought we’d bring you five WooCommerce stores that are offering Bitcoin-related products.
If, as you watched the fireworks during the final minutes of 2014, you resolved that 2015 will be the year you finally get in shape, stick around.
We’ve scoured the internet to find a collection of kickass online businesses that can help you get fit in 2015. And guess what? They’re all powered by WooCommerce.
