Check out our live blogging event to receive a virtual backstage pass into the annual KIIS FM Grammy Gifting Suite. We’ll be following longtime Volusion storeowner, Andrea with Repeat Possessions, as she rubs elbows with celebrities at this major industry event!
Here at Volusion we’re always excited to hear about our customers’ success stories. This one in particular really jumped out at us: longtime customer, Repeat Possessions, has been selected to participate in the ultra-exclusive KIIS FM Grammy Gifting Suite. This glamorous Grammy pre-party has earned a reputation for having top-tier products distributed to stars on the Hollywood A-list. The owner of Repeat Possessions, Andrea, has generously invited us to ride along her breakthrough journey. We’ll be adding pictures, tweets and snippets of the party all day, so stay tuned!
So how did this all happen – how did Andrea make it all the way to the biggest event in music? It all started in 2007 when Repeat Possessions opened their doors online. Andrea decided to start her online store after wasting too much time and money clothes shopping for her four children. Thus, the mission of Repeat Possessions is to deliver high quality products and great priced items, all with the I Want it Now motto. The successful online store offers stylish clothing, shoes and accessories for woman and teen fashionistas. The business also has an insider’s edge in carrying top lines like Niki Biki Apparel.
Andrea has grown her business with Volusion since the fall of 2007. Like most of our customers, she has no programming experience. She attributes learning the ins and outs of the shopping cart software to the 24×7 support team who always teaches her something new. Repeat Possessions continuously receives personal “thank you” messages from satisfied customers, which is what Andrea loves most about selling online. With the love and support from her family, she has achieved what she calls true success – “raising a wonderful, respectful, loving, educated family while teaching them how to succeed in life and having responsibilities to what your passion is.” Talk about a success story!
And in order to spread the wealth, we asked the starlet of Repeat Possessions what her advice is for online store owners. She had the following to say:
- Start with Volusion. I wasted some money the first time around, losing time and cash.
- Pay attention to the customer – treat them like you would like to be treated.
- KISS it…Keep It Simple Stupid!
Congratulations and a big thanks to Repeat Possessions for sharing this wonderful story with us. And STAY TUNED – we’ll be updating the Volusion blog with images, quotes and updates from this superstar event!
