I LOVE THE PACE OF DIGITAL RETAIL BUSINESS.
THAT'S WHY I SPECIALISE.
And I see you.
Dreaming big and working hard to make it happen.
You started your brand to change lives, you self funded your dream, developed beautiful products and here you are ... but sales just aren't converting.
By now you’ve probably tried expensive ads and got no results, given away a tonne of product to influencers and sales still haven’t flowed in, social media is crushing your soul, traffic is proving a challenge and that huge pile of inventory you invested in has tied up all your cash.
You feel frustrated and stuck.
Truth be told, it’s all a bit overwhelming right now... and it's certainly not clear what needs to happen to get the results you really want …
… and yes, you're starting to wonder whether it’s time to go back to your “proper job”…
I totally get it. I really do....
The good news? It is all fixable.
Together we need to get that product moving, unlock sales conversions and we need to solve this NOW before we scale up for global retail success…
"My mission is to lead and show the way - so that others can learn the step by step strategies and methods that truly work to grow their global retail business."
EMMA BLAKE, CEO NAVIGATE THE NOISE.
I scaled my own ecommerce business from kitchen table to retailing online to 170 countries worldwide.
I then sold my business achieving the exit I had always hoped for...
...so now I spend my time helping product-based business owners unlock potential in their ecommerce store, by fixing slow moving stock (inventory), creating structured sales plans and accelerating their retail growth globally.
Just like you, I dreamed of living the successful Internet Entrepreneur lifestyle, running a business from my laptop, with no limit on the amount of money I could make.
But, honestly, it was a struggle until I finally discovered the levers and pulleys in my ecommerce business – the business drivers, that really made it work.
HOW I WENT FROM OVERWORKED CORPORATE "YES" GIRL TO HELPING HUNDREDS OF PRODUCT OWNERS TURN THEIR RETAIL BUSINESS AROUND AND GO FOR GLOBAL GROWTH.
Learning the hard way...
Leaving my big corporate career to start my own ecommerce business proved to be a massive journey for me personally.
I had to unlearn many of the skills I thought so essential as an employee and “get scrappy” in the real world of trading product for sale.
And when I started over 10 years ago, there just wasn't any information out there about how to sell my products globally and how to really grab the attention of online shoppers.
"Initially I grew my business way too slow …and then I grew my business way too fast! "
I struggled in a pit of despair when I bought the wrong stock and had no traffic, wasting thousands on SEO, giving away product to influencers and ad campaigns - and not getting results. I’ve jumped for joy hugging our awards, our team and our products and feeling everything in between most days on the way there.
Whatever you are feeling right now, I 100% get it!
Having spent much of my own money making every mistake in the book, I finally found the formula that really worked...
I discovered the 5% of activities which drove the 95% of results in my ecommerce business...
With laser-like focus I began to scale up my retail business globally. I learned:
- How to fix slow moving stock and increase conversions so that cash flowed back into my business, fast.
- How to rapidly grow my email list from tiny mouse to power house and use it to get sales consistently.
- How to wholesale and price properly, winning time with important retail buyers and creating a network of international distributors.
- How to create a structured sales plan and drive meaningful traffic to accelerate online growth, without burning out.
The reason I wanted to share my story with you is because I want you to know two key things. I deeply understand where you’re at and what you’re going through. I can show you exactly what it takes to get your business moving.
Each and every day myself and my team help other brand owners, just like you, transform their global retail businesses and ecommerce operations.
. . .
We show you step by step what to do to make your product based business profitable and deeply successful online.
