Protogolf was founded in 2004 by Hunter Goodson when he was just 16 years old and launched on eBay. Since then they have expanded to selling on Amazon, comparison shopping sites and of course their own website.
“I wanted to capture a bigger market share of customers from all over the Internet, including the search engines, and offer them an easy, yet feature-rich buying experience” said Hunter. Just as important were the tools to manage inventory, shipping and attract a bigger market share of customers from all over the Internet including search engines.
Diztinct.com were chosen by Protogolf to design the site as StoreAdvisor Premium offers design services or contracting a third party to develop the creatives.
The new site is obviously working, in the three weeks since launching his new store Protogolf has seen a 30% increase in site traffic, handled fewer customer service problems and achieved an overall 300% rise in sales.
I’ve met Hunter a couple of times and he’s always been full of enthusiasm for his business. It’s great to see a successful eBay business grow into a multichannel successful enterprise, to read more on his success you can download a case study on Protogolf from the ChannelAdvisor website.
