Deirdre is the President of Growth Boss, an e-commerce strategy agency. Her team helps product startups scale to 6 and 7 figure online product businesses. Today Deirdre is going to describe which online digital sales platforms are the best for inventors, startups, and small manufacturers that are looking to sell their product directly to end-customers, along with some best practices on those sales platforms.

Today you will hear us talk about:

  • What are the different online sales platforms for consumer products
  • What are one of the biggest misconceptions new business owners have when marketing their product directly to consumers?
  • What is human connection and tribe building? What does that even mean?
