For years people have been asking if Roadkill Ranch had a website. And for years, I’ve made several failed attempts to launch an online store. It’s not that I didn’t give it my all, it’s just there were always plenty of roadblocks involving inventory systems and storage space. But now, after rectifying tech stuff and having an amazing support system, we finally did it.
If it wasn’t for the encouragement of my family and friends, my sister-in-law Rikki (who is a badass physics major, speaks fluent tech, and can single-handedly rewire the electrical in the entire store) and my incredible team, this would not be here.
With the help of my uber-cool photographer friends, Savannah Kaefer, Adam Petrasek, Wing, Brad Bethel, Aaron Son, Patrick Fran, and Damion Lloyd, there’s plenty of fun pictures added daily.
The site itself (not the merchandise) is slightly boring, we didn’t have much of a choice when it came to looks since the hosting company’s (Lightspeed) main focus is on the robust inventory and business needs. They keep promising us a full integration with lots of bells and whistles, so this is just the beginning stage.
I know, I know, “Welcome to the year 2000.” Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of teasing between my brothers and tech friends. But hey, I’ve been busy building a brick-and-mortar for the past 23 years, give me a break. Plus, it’s better late than never.
I hope you’ll check out http://www.roadkillranch.com and share with a friend or two.
