A Web Success Story =================== By Iris Smith Hi, My name is Iris Smith. I am a 34-year-old homemaker with two young children who decided the Web was the best way that I could reenter the work force . My husband David introduced me to John Hsu a few years back and stated we should start a Silk Retail business together. At that time I thought he was nuts! Two kids, no time, deterio- rating brain cells it just could not happen. David was persistent and repeatedly mentioned the Internet as a possibility. After some research I decided he might be on to something. I could refresh my brain cells by thinking past diapers. I could create my own schedule, juggling the needs of my children with the needs of the business, and doing some- thing that I love to do. I love silk and believe in it. It took a year for the plan to fall into place. John and I decided to become partners and offer Silk Lingerie on the Internet. Meetings & brainstorming with my partner John Hsu. Building & rebuilding the website with my terrific webmaster, Dan at Synapse Imaging. It all started falling into place. My partner has all the production experience and knowledge we needed. I worked with Sales & Marketing , Retail Designers. It was a perfect match. ==================================================== !

It has enabled us to have Top Quality products at a very affordable price. We started with a small inventory of ladies silk lingerie. Too many sites, catalogs, & retailers don't use pure silk yet charge high prices. We wanted to provide high quality goods, service & savings over the other retailers. We pride ourselves on listening to our consumers needs. Thanks to the power of the web, our clients can stay in touch, letting us know their needs. Men love to shop quickly & privately, Women love to be able to browse at a site that does not insult them. Satisfying both was certainly a challenge. Website built, Inventory in Hands, now what? We worked too hard to just watch a pretty site. We needed customers! Nightly I spent hours submitting my site to search engines, and free classified ads. I started receiving newsletters. I read them all and dismissed the useless ones. I kept the rest, learning & appreciating advice from better ones like yours. Slowly we saw our mailing list grow & grow, then the orders started coming in, slowly at first, then faster and faster.. The hours of plugging away, reading advice, inputting our site over & over finally started paying off. Tonight, after tucking the kids safely into bed, I sit at my computer and process the days catalog requests, orders and answering customer questions. As I prepare to meet the needs for upcoming Mother's Day orders. I feel very successful. Thanks to good advice, hard work, and the "WEB", we were able to create a quality and honest business that consumers realize they can trust.
