Fun Times in Seattle!

October 15, 2012


The sun sets on yet another fantastic conference, this time in beautiful Seattle. The Sellers Conference for Online Entrepreneurs (SCOE) was a 3-day event over the last weekend in September that brought together high energy online business owners to meet with the experts, share ideas, learn new technologies, and discuss future sales strategies. Replete with amazing, experienced guest speakers, SCOE certainly didn’t disappoint. While there, we had the opportunity to meet with the creators of some really cool online tools. One from by a company called Arcball Interactive, and another called SellerEngine with their Profit Bandit app. Check them out and you’ll see what I mean! We also made great friends with “GrannieAnnie” and many other online sellers.

What was the highlight of our trip, aside from meeting all of the incredible folks at SCOE? Well, we of course always look forward connecting with our integrated partners and were lucky enough to do so with Chris and Richard from Endicia and Jon from Cloud Conversion. Other memorable takeaways were seeing the beauty of Seattle with blue skies and high temperatures, looking up at the newly painted Space Needle, and walking through the famous Pike Place Fish Market. The highlight of our trip; however, had to be our dining experience at “The Crab Pot”. Touting bibs from neck to belt, and mallets in hand, we pounded on three different kinds of crab and ate until our bellies were full. And I do mean full! Although I was ready to make the attempt, there was just no room left for that delicious looking Mud Pie.

Finally, I’d like to announce the winner of our SCOE drawing for a free 1-year subscription to ShipStation. And the winner is…Vincent Lin!  Vincent runs his online business, called LiteTrek, out of California. Vincent is currently selling through his own Webstore, Amazon and eBay. Although his Webstore has been live for 8 years, he only started selling on Amazon two years ago, and eBay just three months ago. Congratulations again, Vincent!

We hope to see you at next year’s SCOE conference!

I’m Curtis, the Director of Business Development for ShipStation. When I’m not scouring the web looking for great partner prospects, I’m working with existing ShipStation partners to make sure that our combine offering is the very best that it can be. In my spare time, I can be found laughing with my 9-year old daughter, biking, running, golfing or relaxing in front of a good movie.
