Episode 73 - Shopify - Merchant Interview - David Steadman from Steadyrack takes us from first concept to going global
Welcome to Ep.73 with David Steadman, CEO and Founder of Steadyrack, designers of revolutionary, space saving, bicycle storage solutions. David is a serial entrepreneur and has pivoted from home builder to bicycle storage business owner, with an innovative product embraced by cyclists and corporations all over the world. David shares the story of Steadyrack, from the first idea, at a family BBQ, to product development, expansion and ecommerce. Visit Steadyrack here Contact The Cut This is an awesome Perth business and ecommerce success story of a personal passion, and some family challenges that led to an idea, that led to a product, that led to a major change in business focus and career direction, and resulted in the growth of a legitimate global business built on a progressive new concept. David Steadman is a driven ideas man, with a love of road bikes, mountain biking, surfing and problem solving. This interview will inspire anyone in business, and every person with entrepreneurial spirit who is out there thinking up ideas and building a business. The concept for the first Steadyrack bike storage solution was born from David’s frustration with not being able to park his car in his garage because of the family bikes left on the floor. Like many people, they couldn't physically tackle the chore of lifting their bikes onto their wall-mounted hooks. Within two weeks of sharing his frustration at a family BBQ, a crude handmade rack was made. This prototype was the beginning of David’s five year journey of multiple home-made iterations, that resulted in the now-patented Steadyrack. In 2009, Steadyrack officially produced and sold its first racks and now 100’s of thousands of Steadyracks are installed in homes and commercial facilities all over the world. It’s not uncommon to see rows and rows of Steadyracks in the carparks of the high rise buildings of some of the biggest corporate names. Big thanks from us to David Steadman, CEO and Founder of Steadyrack for sharing his business and ecomm stories with us.

Episode 68 - Shopify - Expert Interview - Phillip Rivers from Go Tetra on email marketing for ecommerce
Hello and welcome to Ep.68 where we talk to Phillip Rivers, Founder of Go Tetra, ecommerce email marketing specialists. Based in Brooklyn, NYC, USA, the Go Tetra approach is based on the idea that the unsung hero of ecomm is… email! And this is often the most neglected marketing channel too. Based on that concept, Phillip and his team work with ecommerce business owners to unlock sales growth potential in their email marketing. Visit Company here Connect with The Cut here This Shopify interview will be valuable to every ecommerce merchant and business owner who is not doing any real, tactical email marketing. And for those who suspect that there is more that they can do to grow sales. There’s no doubt that marketing directly to the people who are already your best customers and biggest fans, is an ecommerce marketing strategy that produces a high return. Phillip founded Go Tetra in 2016 after building his ecommerce skills in roles from Director of Sales with RewardOps, a customer loyalty and rewards platform, to Business Development and Branding with 72Lux, an enterprise level ecomm SaaS platform. Phillip’s experience has shown him that online store owners neglect email because they don’t understand it, they think they don’t have time for it, and are unaware of how profitable it can be (when done right). Phillip works with ecommerce business owners to change those perceptions based on building tactical email strategies that produce clear ROI in the most efficient ways possible. That is a strategy for growth that’s hard to argue with, so jump in and get the full story from Phillip as he talks with Ben.
