The older you get, the more you have to look back on. Sounds like a fortune cookie right? It’s not an earth shattering statement but when you do look back there is a lot to see.
The beginning of a new year, new decade seemed like the right time to take a look back into Wristpect Sport’s past. When we started this company we had an idea for a product and thought it would be fun to go about making the product and then selling it. Since you are on our website you know what our product is, wristbands; the unique kind that fuses function with fashion! We even nicknamed them WRISTBANDS unleashed! We’ve had a lot of fun creating the different styles and choosing the colors.
When we first began we had little knowledge about web design or even how web traffic flows. (After 8 years one could argue we still have only a little knowledge of this!) Even so we forged ahead and well, here we are.
At first we used a different online platform, we’ve only used our current platform for the last 4 plus years to host our website. So the data I have been looking at covers only the last 4 plus years. In that time we have landed our wristbands to 40 different states! We have sent wristbands to the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. We have sent wristbands to 8 different countries: Australia, Canada, Japan, Great Brittan, Italy, Russia, South Korea, and Sweden. Even though I work directly with our online fulfillment this news was still news to me. I mean when an order comes in from a far away place it is exciting, but then you move on to the next order. It is only when you do take a moment and look back that I could see where we’ve been. Looking back made me smile to think that a product I helped create has touched the lives of people in so many different places.
Don’t get me wrong; I know we are not changing the lives of our wristband purchasers—well maybe a little. But, it is definitely fun to think about where our wristbands are and who might be wearing them! Maybe it’s you!
