It’s one thing to build a site, drive some traffic and close a few sales.  It’s another thing entirely to build a lifestyle brand that resonates with your audience.

The story of Everyday California is a great one chock full of entrepreneurial insights.  My friend and long time client Chris Lynch and his business partner Michael Sammer started their business with just a couple of Kayaks and a beat up truck in La Jolla Shore near San Diego, CA. Fast forward 9 years and they have a super cool apparel line that’s growing at 10x year-over-year online.  They have a license deal with Cherokee – the company that owns Tony Hawk’s brand.  They’re driving traffic through search and social and there’s no slowing down in sight.

Here are some of the lessons we cover in this episode:

– Keys to great design and building a brand that endures

– Top traffic sources for their ecommerce store

– Why they switched from Magento to Shopify Plus

– A crazy Facebook/Instagram post that is raking in the sales

– How to successfully diversify your business

– When to pull the plug on a new initiative

– Plus more!
