E363: Growing and Diversifying Your Ecommerce Business – Under the Hood Part 2 with Sebastien TachéFebruary in Ecom-Crew-Podcast
Sebastien Taché was our guest for Under the Hood back in E187, where we talked about saving on high-quality content for SEO, developing a product in a competitive niche, and then some.
Today, Sebastien is back to share how his business has done after our first 1-on-1 coaching session more than a year ago.
In this sequel episode, I share a lot of things that helped me grow my own ecommerce brands, which you can apply to your business as well.
We talk about things like the benefits of hiring a full-time content writer, branching out into a new industry and importing from China, along with a lot of other stuff that hopefully enables Sebastien to leave his full-time job and reach his ultimate goal in ecommerce.
