There are many Pacific WebWorks clients who have found great success with Visual WebTools products, like Burke Priest of flamewear.com!
Burke Priest is the creator of this site and owner of flamewear.com.
"We went live on June 1, 2000, and since then we have had over 5,000 hits," said Burke.
Due to the success of their Web site, flamewear.com recently expanded to include an offline wholesale business and has had many international sales as well.
Flamewear.com utilizes all components of Visual WebTools. They have close to 100 products in their retail WebShopper database, and they have close to 700 contacts in WebChannels!
They have also made over $40,000 in sales! Burke's business has taken off for simple reasons - he found a niche market and made the most of it, and he offers excellent customer service.
"Our audience is the Harley-Davidson crowd, the hot-rod crowd, the fireman crowd," said Flamewear's Web designer. "These are the groups that we market to do."
"I use many of the strategies that I learned from the PWEB seminars," said Burke. These include e-mail marketing, utilizing the results gathered by WebStats, and strategically placing a PlaceToVacation banner on his site.
Flamewear.com is also advertising in several trade-specific print journals. They have very competitive shipping prices, and each of the retail items has a clear picture and a catchy description.
PWEB congratulates Burke Priest and flamewear.com, and wishes them continued success with Visual WebTools!
