So the years has wrapped up and it was a crazy one.
How many boxes do you think left the V1 garage in 2020?
More than 5200, it is more than 5300 boxes shipped but Dan has been helping out and I am not exactly sure how many he has shipped.
So now I am not deathly afraid of this all ending tomorrow I will be testing the waters with some more licensees’ to hopefully lessen my shipping load to spend more time on R&D and new ideas…and just getting my build dirty!
I have the best mail lady and we were talking about it towards the end of the year. Any idea how much I paid in shipping labels in 2020? Remember most full kits are “free” shipping.
More than $91,000, nearly 92…WHAT!
So I have already started implementing another shipping strategy to save both me and some of the customers in shipping fees. If it works out I will adjust shipping options soon.
Average order value was down, meaning I think I have finally got pricing right were people are buying more small things from me instead of Amazon and not just full kits…not sure if this is a good thing for me or not.
Returning customer rate is way up, so I take that as people are happy with the speed, quality, and prices.
Sales is up, even through all of this. When sales start to dip I will actually freak out knowing we made it through this with an increase.
Pretty freaking cool, Thank you all for being part of this. I really hope to make this year special and get more time in the forums and the FB group, I miss hanging out more. And I want to make some more projects the garage is way to clean!!!
