I get a lot of emails from people asking me how to start an online tea business. I’m not exaggerating, I get A LOT of emails.
When I closed Chicago Tea Garden the amount of emails I received spiked. Many people in the beginning stages of opening their business asked me if I had any insights to offer or tips for growing the business. I did my best to keep up with all of these emails. I truly want every single person that is passionate about starting a tea company to succeed in doing so.
I began to notice patterns and I began to question the ideas of some of the people writing to me. I realized that this was a highly valuable exercise because the simple act of asking someone to question themselves forced them to come back with bigger and better ideas. So I spent the past few weeks putting together a very concise list of questions, pitfalls, and recipes for success. Basically, these are things I wish people would have asked me when I started Chicago Tea Garden, things I learned along the way, and things I would do better if given a second chance.
I compiled all of this information in an e-book called “Bootstrapping an Online Tea Business” and it is available today.
The e-book includes a complete marketing plan blueprint for online tea companies, and also covers:
- Proving to yourself that your idea is awesome
- Keeping things lawful
- What technology platforms you’ll need for e-commerce
- Defining your ideal customer
- Creating a kick-ass product line
- How to write impactful product pages
- Designing your packaging
- A complete marketing blueprint
