A company comes into the world in 2 ways: either a passion or a problem.e.
Tomorrow will mark the first anniversary of my online store www.francoislambert.one.
Yes, I had a passion for producing maple syrup, but above all I had a problem: I didn't know who to sell it to!re!
So I was accumulating..
Then, my coordinator said to me: why we would not make an online storee?
I told her it will never work! Well, I was mistaken. I am optimistic, but realistic in nature..
At first, we offered only syrup in gallons, then we added maple butter, then sugar. Then I wanted to give visibility to my other companies, Boostmi and Undz, as well as to my books, and it worked too.
Then entrepreneurs approached us to sell their products on the site and we created the discovery section. Another success!
Last June, we launched the maple box - which you can receive by subscription or by the piece. Jen had ordered 1000 thinking that I was going to be good for 3 years ... 6 months later, I just placed a new order for 5000 boxes!es!
Same thing for the dragon beard. I just bought a new machine and I just ordered my preprinted jars..
The quantity 30,000!!
At the rate things are going, I don't even know if it's going to be good for a year.
Cotton candy makes you smile, but maple cotton candy - not maple flavor there in LÉRABLE! -, it takes champagne with thatc ça !
The role of an entrepreneur is to offer products that follow trends and tell you about them. Most of my package ideas come from customers..
For example, thethreesomes, it is a customer who asked us for a gift wrapping of 20 to give to his employees. We found it beautiful, so we put the site ... and boom! The quantity sold in a week more than 300!0!
For the past year, shipping has been done from my house in Montreal, but it is no longer possible, because it has become too large. So I'm going to do it from 2 places now.nt.
I have not reinvented anything with maple products, there is nothing new with me, but the reason for the meteoric growth is very simple: the customer first. When a customer places an order on my shop, it's a fight, we have to do it as quickly as possible in order to have it delivered as if it were at the counter.toir.
Some will say, it's easy for you François, you are known..
It is true to establish a bond of trust, but it stops there if my products are not of quality and that the service is poor.e.
So today, I took the trailer from Boostmi to bring boxes of deliveries to my farm to have the 2nd place to send your products.s.
Thank you for this wonderful year.
