An Advanced Recipe for Building the Creative Business of your Dreams
"We built the 1st peer-to-peer creative marketplace to form a new model that combats the disadvantages solo-entrepreneurs face competing against large online companies in the art and design market."
- Jessica Beavers, CEO of Art Urbane
First, The Age Old Recipe for Creating a Profitable Business
1. Desirable Product (product itself and market timing)
You can combine the old ingredients in varying amounts, and you can delete only one ingredient from 3-5.
The old recipe has not really worked in online business for small business owners. There is a 90% online business failure rate, and Shopify's Forum is filled with questions like: "I received 1,700 in traffic last week, but no sales...". The old recipe has not worked because most people start an online business missing at least two items from the truth-saying 1-5 list.
There is also a competition and an elephant-take-all problem. 100'000s of creative solo-entrepreneurs compete against each-other, and 10 companies make 60% of all online profits in the art and design industry. Just 10 companies.
Give or take an ingredient, the above is the age old recipe for finding success in business generally. However, time and technology has shown us a new ace up its sleeve. We now have the ability to leverage entrepreneurial collaboration, not just nationally but internationally. This ability has given us tools to formulate new models/recipes for the success of small business.
Now, Let's Examine An Advanced Model Built to Help Creative Entrepreneurs
Simply, there are only two items that give solo-entrepreneurs the advantage over venture-backed companies: collaboration (strength in numbers) and a technology platform that structures and upholds a mutually, beneficial eco-system.
So, we built it. We built a technology system to support and proliferate a collaborative environment for entrepreneurs to work together and succeed.
We build the 1st peer-to-peer creative marketplace to form a new model that combats the disadvantages solo-entrepreneurs face competing against large online companies in the art and design market.
