Brazaletes vendidos:Más de 1000

El alquiler, la propiedad y la apertura de un negocio en el corazón de Londres son totalmente caros. ¡Realmente caros! Pero las amigas de 27 años que están detrás de Whistle & Bango dicen que lanzar su marca y su negocio solo fue posible en Londres porque eligieron hacerlo únicamente en línea. Después de crear su sitio de comercio electrónico en Weebly, empezaron a enviar sus brazaletes británicos a medida por todo el mundo, y estrellas, blogueros e influencers de todo el planeta comenzaron a usarlos. Su sueño es ver a la princesa Kate luciendo su código postal del Palacio de Buckingham en uno de sus brazaletes (que ahora puede comprar sin esfuerzo desde su teléfono o computadora portátil en whistleandbango.com).

Tablas de snowboard vendidas:Más de 30

Cotswolds de Inglaterra es más conocida por sus lluvias que por sus nevadas. Pero la madre naturaleza no impidió que estos dos hombres iniciaran el único negocio de tablas de snowboard hechas a mano en el Reino Unido. La llamaron DOUK (que significa David Ombler UK) y porque es un juego de palabras con los duques de Inglaterra. Están orgullosos de haber fabricado a mano tablas de snowboard para personas notables en la escena del snowboard, el rey de Bután y cientos de personas de todo el mundo. Incluso dirigen su negocio desde las pistas, comprobando los pedidos y respondiendo a los clientes en su aplicación móvil en medio de la montaña. ¡Un concepto genial!

Luces vendidas:50

Es la primera en decir que es la esposa de un granjero lechero y no una diseñadora de páginas web, pero eso no impidió que esta madre de dos niños iniciara un negocio paralelo y un sitio de comercio electrónico en su granja, en la remota parte suroeste de Irlanda. Se le “encendió la lamparita” sobre el negocio mientras intentaba ahorrar dinero para su propia granja. Se cambió a las luces LED, redujo su cuenta de la luz en un 70% y luego decidió adquirir y vender esas mismas luces “increíblemente brillantes” directamente a otros agricultores de toda Irlanda. Es una forma de ayudar a otros agricultores, pero también de complementar los ingresos, a menudo inestables, de las explotaciones lácteas.

Markus debía hacerse cargo de la carpintería de su padre, un negocio familiar de larga data.

Ahora ha vuelto a construir muebles de calidad y a trasladar el antiguo negocio familiar a una moderna tienda digital.

Raising three boys under the age of five is a full-time job in itself, but Emily of Backwoods Beer Soap couldn’t resist the opportunity to let her creative juices flow, or in this case bubble up. When her 9 month old developed severe eczema, this stay-at-home-mom read about the benefits of hops for sensitive skin. That’s when she decided to use leftover beer at her husband’s brewery in Carson, Washington to make handmade soaps for her boys. Turns out, the whole town wanted them too. Now she’s selling her one of a kind soaps through her Weebly eCommerce site, stocking them on the brewery shelves and talking with distributors to take Backwoods Beer Soaps to the next level.

It’s almost impossible to reinvent the wheel, but somehow the lovable couple behind the Dharma Yoga Wheel in New York City managed to do it, and build a thriving business in the process. Nine months after launching their Weebly site, they broke a million dollars in online sales and are shipping their product to dozens of countries. The most rewarding part? Helping people open their hearts, backs, shoulders and discover yoga in a new way. Without an easy to use online store on Weebly, Dov and Raquel say this life changing business would never have happened.

Saving century old letterpress machines was more than a passion project for 69 year old published poet, Joe Green. It was a no brainer. Using a modern machine to build a website? Well, that was a new challenge. But, getting his one of a kind poetry prints online and on an eCommerce store was his way of using new technology to save an old one: the ironclad, inky, time-consuming art of hand-printed letterpress. He wants you to know — if he can build a website, you’ve definitely got this.

If you’re a knitter you likely have two enemies: curious cats and dirty floors. Kate from Cooperstown, New York knew there had to be a better way to keep expensive yarn protected from these very real knitting nightmares. It’s why she invented the Yarnit from her remote farmhouse. After getting taken to the cleaners by a web designer, on the night before a major event and in the 11th hour, she decided to build her website herself. The Yarnit is now the new gem of the knitting world and Kate wakes up every day to orders from all over the world. She says retirement is overrated and she’s happier running a thriving small business and taking on new challenges each day.

Caroline hadn’t picked up a paintbrush in 15 years, but when she moved from Paris to San Francisco, the vibrant colors of the city inspired her to cover a white canvas in hot pink, mint and yellow. She always thought you had to be “an official artist” to have a website so she started on Etsy, but then realized she wanted something more customizable. She wanted the digital storefront for her art to be as unique as the pieces themselves. She built a site on Weebly and can now confidently say, she’s an ‘official artist’ after all.

Eggs SoldToo many to count

This close-knit family called the city home until they decided they were all ready for a change of pace. They ditched the hustle bustle for a quieter, more connected farm life in the countryside of Washington. Mind you, none of them knew how to farm, but they were so inspired by the concept of rotational grazing, knowing your local farmer and hopefully changing the way the world eats, they decided to take a risk. Now, Botany Bay Farm's meats, poultry and eggs are stocked in high-end local grocery stores and they use their eCommerce site to take orders online. They’ve grown closer as a family, learned how to birth a cow on YouTube, plant a garden and yes, build a website. They say they are the next generation of tech-savvy farmers!
