Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as I wasn't able to go back home to visit my family, I sent them a few Japanese snacks.
They loved it.
So, I decided to make it a business, sending japanese snacks to foreigners that weren't able to visit Japan. Giving them a way to travel, while staying at home.
On September 5th 2020, I purchased the domain name but my first official order came on November 6th, right after the launch of Tokyo Snack Box.
As a founder, my tasks are various :
- Manage E-commerce website
- Pack & Ship orders
- Social Media Marketing
- Community Building
- Newsletter Marketing
- Ads Marketing
- Influencer Marketing
- Accounting (for tax purposes)
And probably much more that I can't even recall
And here is what I've achieved (Full-year 2021) :
- 2000+ unique customers
- ~20M yens / 150k euros sales
- Featured in French and Japanese News Media
