Magickal Bear July 2021 Update!
Behind-the-Scenes With “Magickal Bear”
Your Opportunity to Watch Me Build a Brand-New,
Digital and Physical Products Business from the Ground Up!
I am building a brand-new business from scratch in the Metaphysical / Nature space that will offer both digital and physical products of all types. While I have already started the beginning processes, I wanted to give you an opportunity to come along for the ride to see how I approach, plan, and create this brand-new business venture!
Brainstorming and Business Setup
Be the proverbial “Fly on the Wall” as Kristen and I brainstorm business ideas for Magickal Bear. You will also see how we structure the business as a DBA of our company, InterACT, LLC.
All My Design and Product Creation
Watch over my shoulder as I research, design and create BOTH digital and physical products...both as screencast videos and live action. I will be creating Printables, printed books, physical products of many types, subscription boxes and more! You will also see how I handle packaging design and creation!
Website and Social Media Setup
Discover how I design and build my SquareSpace site, Shopify backend, Etsy, Social Media Channels, Pinterest, YouTube, and more!
Products Prepped for Wholesaling
Follow me through the entire process for preparing products to sell through wholesale sites, including product photography, descriptions, terms, account setup and more.
Suppliers and Contacts
Finding the best suppliers for goods can be extremely challenging. You will see how I approach it, how I setup the accounts, who I buy from and more!
Watch me setup my marketing plan, create paid ads on Social Media platforms, create articles and blog posts, setup optin forms, and more. We will also be applying for Trademarks as a part of the marketing process.
Packing and Shipping
As orders begin to come in, I will walk you through how we pack and ship...the setup we use in our S.H.I.T. (Shipping, Handling, Inventory, & Tracking) room, and more!
Growing and Expanding
We have big plans for this business! You will get to see how we approach business growth over time, add new product lines, expand into courses and trainings, and more!
