How KeySmart Made $1.3 Million on a Product Launch
< 1 day ago
When starting out with your store, most folks struggle to get their first sale.
Then, if you do find your product-market fit, and get traction in your niche, you set your sites on growing to your first million dollars in revenue. And if you can get there, you’d feel pretty great.
Now what if I told you our guest today got to a million dollars in revenue in a few months on a single new product launch with pre-orders.
Pretty wild, right?
On today’s episode, we’ll pull back the curtain on this monumental success.
Andy Bedell is the head of marketing for KeySmart, one of Shopifys largest e-commerce stores. He is an experienced advertiser and email marketer with over $20 million in revenue under his belt.
In addition to KeySmart, Andy has consulted advertising agencies, other eCommerce stores, and several Kickstarter campaigns.
Before entering the eCommerce world he ran advertising for the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Executive Education department.

I'm a huge podcast listener and Shopify store owner so I was happy when this podcast came along. Lots of interesting stories and love to hear the answer to the question posed every episode about the guests favorite app to use for their business. I do wish there were more interviews with newer shopify store owners so see how they are reaching their success. And it could just be me that's noticed this, but the host tends to interrupt the guest to tell his own opinion or story without letting the guest finish their thought - which I find annoying and amusing at same time. :)

Probably my favorite podcast right now
Very informative. If you have or want a Shopify shop, this is a must-listen.
I believe that the people behind this are going to become a pretty big deal (they already are) as Shopify expands, so get in on the ground level and listen.
I listen to a few different podcasts around entrepreneurship and ecommerce, but I'm most excited when there's a new episode of this one.
