Around mid-2014, we started to have an online business idea. At that time, I kept thinking about it without knowing what to sell and what the market was going to be. What suddenly came to my mind was that I must do business, only business is the way to help me. out of poverty. At this time, I look at the reality of my life. I am a provincial resident who goes to the city to study and work. When thinking about my homeland, my emotions are always proud and miss.
Usually, those who are far away from home will always remember their hometown, and so do Americans. They also used to be far away from their hometown and used to have a lot of emotions when thinking about their hometown. At this time, I realized that the portraits of guests that we are targeting will be people who have lived far away from home.
According to data returned from Facebook data, the market for people living far from home in the US is in the millions. Among the districts in the US, the largest community of people living away from home can be mentioned as New Jersey, Texas. As for countries outside the US, the communities living far from home are the largest such as Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and Mexico.
When researching sales listings on major e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, Etsy, Walmart, it is clear that a lot of customers living far from home buy products that focus on customers’ active emotions. Typical product lines are t-shirts, mugs, hoodies, blankets, footwear…
Mission: Teezalo was born to provide high-quality products to serve the expatriate community in the US, furthermore, the expatriate community in Europe and other countries around the world.
Vision: Vision to 2025, when people away from home in the US want to buy a product online, they will remember Teezalo.
Core Values: We build a business based on 5 core values: Discipline, responsibility, solidarity, sharing, love.
We are positioned to do print-on-demand products. Because we want to make a difference and bring unique values to customers. That’s why print on demand is a technique we use a lot in our products. The shipping time of print-on-demand products will be longer than traditional products, but on the contrary, customers will receive products that match their requirements and preferences.
Personalization trend: Our products always apply the most trendy technologies to bring customers interesting experiences. With the personalization feature, customers can customize a lot of personal information to suit their preferences.
To operate and build a business with print on demand, a team is indispensable. If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go with your teammates, understanding that right from the beginning of the company’s establishment, we have focused on team building. Our company includes the following teams: idea team, customer care team, design team, and advertising team. At Teezalo no one works for anyone but we work together and share the results.
The idea of building a team from the beginning is not wrong. We have achieved certain achievements in the development process over the past 7 years. If I could go back in time and talk about one thing I regret, it would be that I should have built my team earlier.
After about 8 years of operation in the field of e-commerce, we have achieved some outstanding achievements.
– Sales of about 3 million dollars.
– We have sold about 20000 print-on-demand products.
– We are the leading unit in the field of print on demand selling products to the target group of customers living far from home.
We started our business with sales platforms like Teespring, Viralstyle, Teechip, and Gearbubble but in the end we chose Shopify as the platform that will go next in our business growth. Shopify helps us understand our customers better with in-depth tools. Since then, we know the pain, the problem of the customer, from which we will make timely adjustments to better serve our customers. In addition, Shopify is also a platform that helps us drive traffic from a variety of different sources. From there, my business can reach more customers who are interested in the product.
Customers have many choices and many places to shop, but Teezalo has core values that have been loved and chosen by customers over the years. Some of the top reasons include:
– We have a dedicated market research team to create unique products that you won’t find in any local store. In addition, we also have a talented design team to realize ideas.
