Doe Deere recently dished on her thoughts of business and her brand. Simple stated she loves being a business woman and finds it to be the only profession she has truly succeeded in. She has fully embraced the e-commerce way of business for her business module. E-commerce is a very popular shopping option now.
The start of Doe’s makeup company started humbly. She created a “limecrime” store on eBay for a place to sell her clothing lines. She started selling lip colors to go along with the clothing, because customers asked her about her colorful makeup that she wore in the pictures of her modeling her clothing line for the store. The makeup really took off from there and it became her number one selling item. She focused on creating more makeup. Over time she was able to create her own Lime Crime website to sell her makeup products from. Doe Deere has since then been keeping up a steady stream of new product ideas with her team and strengthening her customer service and customer protection on her website.
Doe Deere’s advice for how to conduct business is to know your brand and who your customers are. Doe Deere knows her brand is colorful and magical seeming. She creates ads that reflect that element. She also knows that the fans of her brand are generally young teens, teens, younger women, some older men, and perhaps some young men who love makeup.
Her advice to future entrepreneurs is to never give up if you have a goal. Start with achievable business goals at first.
