JackThreads: One Man’s eCommerce Dream and How It Became Reality

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

How does a regular guy from Ohio build a successful fashion company? According to Jason Ross, the entrepreneur who accomplished this feat, the opportunities are available if you are willing to take them.

He always had an interest in contemporary fashions and better streetwear for men, but he didn’t have the budget for them. For this reason, he reached out to the retailers and found out that they couldn’t liquidate their merchandise because they didn’t have a trusted vendor. Through this, Ross was able to build relationships and, in turn, develop JackThreads, a discount clothing site for men.

The business went on to be acquired by Thrillist, a popular lifestyle website and newsletter geared toward professional men. In this interview with Abby Johnson, Ross said that this move was one of the best he has ever made for the business.

Find out more about Ross’s success story and why puts a strong emphasis on customer service, in this SmallBusinessNewz report.

    He’s done well. Love the affordability idea, that is what we try to do with our organic skin care, make it affordable to everyone, but still really good quality.

  2. I love success stories!!

    It is great to hear how just your everyday individual can bsucceed within the competitive sectors of business!

  3. Today, in the competition world customer is king and services offered must achieve this. in short Customer satisfaction plays an important role and also increases the word of mouth publicity which matters a lot.
    Thanks for sharing the story. This is more useful for me as I am also planning to launch e-commerce site. :)

  4. This guy seems switched on. I think he should run a training scheme or write a book on his story simply because at 2008 it is so recent. I have a friend who does on line retail and his focus is not on stacking shelves full of stuff to sell but on maintain a high standard of customer care.

  5. Very nice stuff presented here.

  6. This is a tremendous story. Jason did a fantastic job of creating an onling fashion brand. Just goes to show what people can do when they set their mind on achieving something.

    The following time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to read, nonetheless I in fact thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is actually a bunch of whining about one thing that you might fix for those that werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
