We are a couple of young entrepreneurial college students with what some would consider too much free time on our hands. We began our small business which was ran and operated out of an apartment, well initially simply selling a wide range of books, cd's and dvd's. Small business ventures in most cases are a dueling task. But our business, Elements has done remarkably well soaring to greater heights than most of our millions of online competitors. We attribute this to the 'quality over quantity' rule.
Of course it still remains a bit too difficult to compete with the much larger Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart. However what we have realized is that by creating an Amazon.com marketplace seller account, we don't have to compete with larger competitors because our traffic naturally is brought to us courtesy of Amazon whose online sales are considerably greater than any of our competition. We are part of a ever expanding global marketplace whose sales with the right prices never seem to diminish. In fact we see continuous growth with each day that passes. Initially we realized that with a fair amount of start-up capital for a broad inventory sold at great prices will attract clientele who are seeking a product that is truly unique to their needs. These were the vital 'elements' in running any successful business. Sorry no pun intended.
Currently we are looking into expanding into a mall storefront like that of Sam Goody and hope to in the near future franchise our business. This is truly something that anybody can do with just a little motivation. But of course for that we encourage you to keep investing in your small businesses.
