4 Reasons Why eCommerce Stores Fail & Our Solutions
Brand recognition and consistent streams of customer traffic are vital. Financial resources and time are paramount to maintain a flow of customer traffic and compete in the marketplace.
SOLUTION. With Art Urbane, you have a built-in sales and marketing team with zero overhead: all creative entrepreneurs collaborate on Art Urbane by helping to sell each others' artwork and sharing in profit. The larger Art Urbane grows, the larger your opportunity to make passive income. This is the exact opposite of the online marketplace, where the larger the market, the more difficult it is to compete. So, like we said, we flipped the table...
Burn-out is real, no matter how many inspirational quotes you read. There is a saying, "work smarter, not harder". Believe it, we learned the hard way!
SOLUTION. Art Urbane manages all the nitty-gritty (back-end logistics). We act as your employees. For instance, we field and answer questions from your customers and artists, provide order-fulfillment, shipping logistics, artist on-boarding, inventory management, etc.
You are not starting from scratch, and you are not working alone - we've built the infrastructure for you to continue building upon, and one that grows only when you grow. We don't require any watering.
SOLUTION. Instead of working alone, you learn with a collaborative network of entrepreneurs experienced doing what you haven't, and it is in everyone's interest to help one another. Also, Art Urbane provides continuous how-to guides that are tried and true. We may not offer you the keys to success, but we do know what the road looks like. Our aim is to provide you a success formula that helps you formulate working habits that are enjoyable and exist on your schedule. We are strong believers in optimizing our time, and we share the many ways you can work effectively.
