Erilan: Discretion & Sensitivity in eCommerce
2 days ago
A few weeks back, a listener suggested that we record an episode about marketing for sensitive niches.
That sounded like an interesting challenge, so I tweeted about it.
I had assumed that sensitive referred to age-restricted industries like tobacco, cannabis, adult goods, etc.
Instead, we got a far more interesting response from a long-time listener.
He wrote to us:
"My mum got breast cancer 10 years ago and had to have a double mastectomy. She lives in rural Australia where access to all the necessary prosthetics and clothing was near impossible. When she got better she asked me about starting a business and I ended up doing all the digital stuff. It was one of my first forays into e-commerce and we've since moved to it to Shopify where it leads its industry in Australia. One of the huge obstacles is the discretion involved. "
In today’s episode, we walk through the challenges they’ve faced and the lessons they’ve learned.

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.
