Greetings, Frank! Would you please introduce yourself?

From Prius to new G-Wagen START FOR FREE

Hello! I’m Frank Anderson from Arizona. My wife Melanie and I, with our everyday jobs and little knowledge of ecommerce, decided to start an online business. In just 18 months, we made nearly $150K and changed our lives once and for all.

Congrats! Could you reveal the secret – how the Toyota Prius, of all things, played a crucial role in your success?

Sure. It’s not as if every Prius owner handed us a check. Melanie and I were proud Prius owners. As much as we loved the car, its trunk was a pain. All the time we’ve used this car, the trunk was always a mess. We felt there was a strong need for a specialized trunk organizer.

We were dealing with this problem firsthand, so who better to solve it than us? Our desire to fix it and our growing interest in ecommerce gave us a business idea that changed our lives.

Remarkable! You say that Toyota Prius owners brought you that money. How so? And how long is the way from an idea to results?

It was a journey in itself. Two years ago, Melanie and I had a strong desire to create something of our own. I worked at CenturyLink support, and Melanie juggled her responsibilities at Chuck E Cheese.

Starting a business seemed tough since we had no experience. But our Prius had a real problem we could fix. We brainstormed and decided that a trunk organizer for the Prius was our solution.

I learned about the online business model through YouTube bloggers, starting with Shopify, then BigCommerce, WooCommerce, and more. They were hard to use until I found Sellvia. Its easy interface and wide product range were perfect for our startup.

Spotting the right product was half the battle. Could you give details on how you succeed?

Sure. Melanie, who is great with social media, started posting on Instagram. Our first sales came from family and friends because they also drove Prius.

Seeing the potential, we made product videos and shared them widely. This helped us reach a bigger audience.

While social media did wonders, we felt the need to diversify. I tried my hand at starting Facebook ad campaigns to target Prius owners. Thanks to Sellvia’s FREE Marketing Academy, of course, I started my first ad campaign, using our personal insights.

As a result, it not only caught attention but also converted interest into sales. What really surprised me is that many customers became loyal clients. They returned to buy more or told others about our product.

Such an inspiring journey! With this success achieved, any plans to expand your business?

Thank you! As of now, we’re enjoying the steady growth of our business. We’ve already achieved one thing – we’ve bought our dream car, the G-Wagen. It’s due to the financial liberty our business gave us.

It’s poetic how our Prius-centric business funded this dream, allowing us to shift to the other car. Looking ahead, we wish to focus on our personal desires. We’ve been amazed by the Californian landscape and lifestyle, and relocation is our next milestone.

Your tale is a sign of hope for many. Do you have any recommendations for those who wish to start their journey?
