SellerVue: An Origin Story
2013: An intrepid former chiropractor starts his first Amazon business so he can move to an island paradise and live that freewheelin’ digital nomad life.
But taking on the ecommerce world can be dangerous—so many unforeseen costs and fees sneaking around every corner, stealing profits right out of the pockets of unsuspecting sellers.
So, he embarks on a classic 80’s training montage (except with lots of spreadsheets). He learns how to find and track every-single-metric, in the name of profitability—from the most granular per-SKU costs to the most zoomed-out, business-wide expenses.
He builds the most beautiful, intricate spreadsheet the world has ever seen, and buries himself in its rows and columns for many years.
2018: He has now acquired, made profitable, and sold multiple ecommerce brands, all with his trusty spreadsheet by his side.
But with multiple growing brands, products & costs to keep track of, that spreadsheet is growing way out of control.
His accuracy is slipping because he can’t keep up with it all. There’s too much to track, and it’s constantly becoming outdated because the business moves so quickly.
As he spends more and more time buried in the spreadsheet, he’s pulled away from doing the Very Important Things his business needs in order to scale & thrive.
He needs help.
But when he evaluates the existing apps and software programs available, he can see right away that none of them will do. None of them are as thorough as his own tracking method, and none of them can help business owners act in the future—all they do is report the past.
Enter his computer-genius best friend, who just so happens to know how to custom-build an automated cost tracker that can free sellers from spreadsheet hell.
Another montage! (The robot-building kind, this time.) Sparks flying, frustrating #fails, and hopeful attempts that blow up in their faces.
After a year of hard work, they finally have it.
We're in 2022 now-
We dubbed our mascot, the 'Profit-Bot' - Sellie, and he gobbles up that unwieldy spreadsheet right away.
He assimilates all the data, sorting it into per-product costs and overall costs.
He analyzes invoices in real time, and even alerts the humans when one of the numbers is higher or lower than it should be.
Freed from his spreadsheet prison, our ecommerce pro can make better, more informed decisions about where his money is going.
He keeps more of his own money, and now he’s able to invest it in the activities that help the business grow.
(And now he can actually enjoy his life as a digital nomad. Everyone wins!)
