I currently own and operate an online furniture fabrics company called Exotic Slipcovers. We design custom made "couch covers / slipcovers" for furniture. I created and launched the company back in late 2012. Within 2 months of going online, we were generating sales. I created this company because there currently wasn't anything out there like this, in terms of a "custom made" slipcover company. Within the last few years my website traffic has reduced and gone down dramatically. It's to the point where I'm lucky if I'm getting 5 - 10 hits per day. Anybody that knows anything about business or online marketing knows that just isn't going to cut it. For this business to be successful, it needs to be ranked on Page 1 of Google. The problem is am I competing with the likes of: Wal-Mart, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Sure-Fit, Overstock, Wayfair, Kohls, etc. These are giant companies with unlimited marketing and advertising funds. Even though these companies would be considered competitors because they sell slipcovers, we don't really feel like we are competing with them because our slipcovers are "custom made" and totally different.
I am looking for a partner with extensive experience in Design/Marketing/SEO. For the right person I would be willing to discuss a certain percentage of ownership in the company. In exchange this person would be responsible for the redesign and complete overhaul of the website. They would also be required to perform "extensive" Search Engine Optimization work to achieve page 1 Google results. But this person has to have a PROVEN track record of achieving excellent SEO rankings.
This is a great opportunity for a Designer/SEO person to get in on an already established and developed company.
