We were very. Very late to that and. And we’re still playing catch up. And obviously. Like back then. We were living in those glory days where like. Literally you can put anything up and sell with no strategy. But fast forward to now. We’re. We’re cleaning up our mess that we did in the past. Cause we just grew way. Way. Way too quick. And. And yeah. I mean that’s probably one of the biggest things. Obviously. PPC is another one where we did not need to allocate that those amount of funds for PPC. Now it’s another one of those things you have to pay to play if you don’t. Yeah. We see the results of that. Bradley Sutton: Okay. Now. You know. Like you mentioned.
Start on ebay. Went to Amazon now we’re in. You know. The end of 2021. What are the other platforms that you’ve been selling on? Eugene: Right now it’s currently just Amazon and Walmart mainly. We have own Shopify. But that’s. Those are really the two main channels we push. Bradley Sutton: How many marketplaces on Georgia email list only USA or are you selling in any international? Eugene: We do Canada and Mexico. Bradley Sutton: Okay. So like just projected sales between. You know. Amazon and Walmart everything together.
York and My Parents Had
What do you think? You know. I mean. We’re coming up on the end of the year. Is this busy season. So I know you. Might not be an exact. That’s totally fine around how much. Well. Your gross sales have been when you look back at 2021. Eugene: 2021 I think we’re probably gonna be in the. Probably we’re from the 18 to 20 million mark for revenue. Bradley Sutton: 18 to 20 million. I love it. Yeah. Making a little bit more than you would have if you know. You. You took over your parents’ restaurant there. So did you. Speaking of that. Like the way that you do products. Were you always just looking at. At where the opportunity is or did you do any kind of like products that. For example
Came from your knowledge about the restaurant industry from your parents? “Oh man. This is something my parents probably. You know. Could use. Or this is something that I personally. You know. Like to do”. Did everything. Did anything come from like personal pet projects or knowledge or was it all just like. All right. Let me research where there’s high demand and low competition. Eugene: I would say in the beginning it was. I mean. There was a very electronics-tech focus and my cousin. Myself we’re very heavy into that. Into that area.
A Chinese Restaurant
So that was really the kinda like the driving force. So we started out as more. How do you say the cables. Adapters webcams. Electronic gadgets like that digital key chain. Those types of things? And that has mostly been abandoned now. We’ve pivoted to more of fashion apparel which works for us. But obviously. It’s a. It’s very hard to navigate with. With so many colors prints and sizing it’s gets crazy Bradley Sutton: Different. Different brand than the electronics I’m assuming? Eugene: No. This is everything was under one roof. And this was a mistake we made. Because again. We. We started off like just grabbing anything that we could. So we were kinda like the Walmart of Amazon could sell like anything from health and beauty.
