015: Building An Incredibly Successful Community Based eCommerce Store – Eric Bandholz,

Posted by Austin Brawner on July 3, 2014

Eric Bandholz and his team launch Beardbrand on January 28th, 2013 with only 3 products and no established sales.

They have since grown from $1000 in sales per month to now generating over $120k per month in sales.


Beardbrand provides the tools and strategies men need to take care of their beautiful beards.

Their products are of the highest quality and made from all natural ingredients. They are designed for men who find value in quality, service, and experience and they are for men that are passionate about life.

Simply put, Beardbrand provides Style for the Urban Beardsmen.

Eric attests that Beardbrand’s success comes from his focus on building a community based ecommerce site and that you should consider building one, too.
