Homepreneurs has not run a home business success story in a while. In this post, we cover creating mscreations, a home business success story.
I am very familiar with this story – it is mine. To summarize, I identified an under-served market and created a plan to fill that niche. mscreations is an e-commerce website exclusively for artisans that have multiple sclerosis. It is similar to Etsy or eBay, but considerably smaller and focused on a subset of the population.
mscreations gives artists a chance to display and sell products without getting lost in a huge market like other online sellers. Further, a portion of every sale is donated to multiple sclerosis research causes. Win-win for both artist (income) and ms research (donations).
A nice article was written about my endeavors in an online magazine – The Pioneer – for the University of Wisconsin – Platteville. The website went live on Saturday, August 1st, 2015 and as of today, August 3rd, it already has over 1100 views.
Will this effort be successful in the long-term? I can’t predict that – too many variable are involved. I can say with confidence that I gave this project my very best effort, both as a project manager and as a founder.
If you are interested in artwork, crafts, jewelry, photography, and other visual arts, take a look at mscreations and benefit a good cause.
