99mainstreet came to us with only a concept...a small business solution to bring the downtown shopping experience right into people's homes, through an e-commerce site. They wanted it to be fast, easy and all about convenience, for both the customer and the small businesses. They needed a full service e-commerce site that would tell their brand story, introduce customers to this new concept of local buying, and allow stores to manage their own shop online, while maintaining their branding, look and feel.
It has been an exciting launch for 99mainstreet since 2013. We have developed a fully comprehensive e-commerce website, with scalability. We have sourced over 100 products, across 5 vendors and have successfully processed our first 200 orders online. In 2014, we will begin a pilot program, by partnering with a local town and Chamber of Commerce in MI, to test and learn on our theory that there is a demand for online local buying. We are offering our full marketing and web services to 99mainstreet so that they can launch a successful model that offers an affordable e-commerce solution to small businesses, while allowing customers to continue to buy from small businesses across America.
