Being able to adapt in order to grow and succeed whether it be by adding new services or products, adjusting to new technology, targeting new audiences, a combination of all of these, or even changing businesses is what makes or breaks success for a business and business owner.
HM Coordinator has had quite an enjoyable journey and had many opportunities to gain new-found experience and knowledge along the way thanks to our clients over the past few years.
In October 2015 Heather McMahon, owner of HM Coordinator opened a new and very different business, Up On Retail. With growing numbers of online shoppers around the world Up On Retail, an ecommerce business, would provide sales of quality products that are new, unique, antique and vintage via online storefronts on Amazon, Etsy and Ebay.
While juggling both businesses was challenging at times, requiring endless hours to learn an entirely new business while also servicing existing clients of HM Coordinator, 2016 proved to provide a clear decision for where Heather would now focus her professional time and energy.
Up On Retail's first year in business saw sales on Amazon.com grow remarkably, Etsy provided a way for worldwide shoppers to find and purchase unique, antique and vintage items, Ebay offered an outlet for sales of used items, and Up On Retail's first private label product, Vinyl By Nature was born.
New partnerships with manufacturers in both Canada and US are being developed on a regular basis to allow customers to purchase an even broader range of quality products from Up On Retail's Amazon storefront. Additional private label products are in discussion, and continued focus to source more unique, antique and vintage items to sell on Etsy is underway.
Being able to apply social media as well as website knowledge and experience into Up On Retail will allow a broader consumer base to learn about and purchase the products for sale on Up On Retail.
As the song goes, Every New Beginning Comes From Some Other Beginnings End.
With that, HM Coordinator would like to thank our clients for your continued support, allowing us so many opportunities to build and enhance your online presence and growth of your businesses. It has been a pleasure to build long lasting relationships and friendships with you, our clients. We wish you continued success in your businesses!
We hope you will take the opportunity to visit our storefront links through www.uponretail.com on a regular basis and offer continued support for Heather's new business.
