Person behind the Business: Kimberly Dannettell
Location: Tucson, AZ (USA)
Website Goal: Priority is to get noticed! Then I’d like to make the experience of viewing, selecting and purchasing the designs be as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
Main Market: Casual/Fitness Fashion for ages 20 to 50.
Main Challenge: SEO is a nightmare because it makes it is hard to figure out and get noticed in order to improve sales.
Star Product: Hard question! I love all my designs but my fitness t-shirts are my top movers.
What you wish you’d known before creating a website: How hard it is to launch! The design is easy, and getting the website to actually be seen and searched for is very hard. I also wish I had hired someone to do it for me!
Your Brand Story: I’ve loved design since I was little and have always been a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. I’ve been in the sign business for 20 years. 2 years ago I opened up a cross-fit gym with my husband after he retired from the military. I was needing a creative outlet so I decided to launch a custom t-shirt shop online. The store is named after my daughter who I affectionately called “monkey face” as a little girl. She was adorable, she had the biggest cheeks and cutest expression as a toddler, so the name stuck!
