Founder of a subscription and B2B coffee company. Digital strategist who's worked with some big brands. Lots of experience around international expansion particularly between the US and UK.
Founder of a Fairtrade coffee ecommerce company that uses recurring billing for its B2C proposition. The subscription model works extremely well when done properly, but there are some important pitfalls to avoid. I've already made the mistakes and can help you skip over them.
I've guided large corporations through massive transformations as well as made the painful decision to pivot my own startup away from a product and customer base I'd spent a year developing. If you're struggling with the important decision of changing tack or sticking with the current path, I can help you take the emotion out of the problem and provide some structure to the situation.
Born, raised, and educated in the US, I've been living in the UK since 2009 and founded my own startup here in 2011. I know the ins and outs of both markets and can help with logistics, suppliers, customer acquisition, legal and tax issues, market entry strategy and more.
I've grown our B2B coffee sales company's client list 30 - 50% month over month. There's not a magic bullet, but there are lots of things you can do to make the process easier, more effective, and more profitable with a bit of hard work.
I'm happy to share the tools, templates, and techniques that have worked for us (as long as you're not a competitor!).
You may want to consider narrowing your focus and asking more specific questions. What sort of customers are you looking to serve? What problems or needs are you solving for them?
Once you focus there a bit, you'll probably want to start by looking for local importers who specialise in the type of products you're looking to sell. Your volumes probably won't be high enough to source directly at first without risking carrying loads of unsold inventory. This has the added benefit of eliminating all the trade / import paperwork, as they sort it themselves.
Mr. Cavalier showed limitless devotion to perfection in his work. Our division's assignment was looking at major delays due to loss of personnel and resources. Mr. Cavalier's keen understanding of the project and his ability to properly manage resources available to him, as limited as they were, enabled him to provide an expertly prepared deliverable far ahead of schedule. In addition to greatly improving the organization's standing, he also brought considerable improvements to the morale of the personnel through his hard work, mentoring his peers and subordinates and setting a fine example. Mr. Cavalier is a very talented and intelligent professional and any organization would be lucky to have him.
I reported to Wyatt this past summer as part of a team on a strategic project concerning financial disintermediation and its effects on the financial services industry. He provided us with excellent access to not only himself but those in Barclays we needed to contact in order to complete our project. Even though this past summer was relatively eventful for Barclays, Wyatt was always available for guidance and provided us the opportunity to bounce ideas off him in order to ensure our deliverables were the best they could be. It was easy to tell that he enjoys his work but also is extremely interested in developing those working with him. He was extremely knowledgeable but also was more than happy to get us to the people who were specialists in order to get us the most accurate opinions and data. I highly recommend Wyatt and would without a doubt work for/with him again.
