I find that when online businesses fail it’s because they rushed to get things started and forgot about building a strong business foundation.
They have a business name, but don't have a clear target market.
The put up a website, but haven't built a brand.
....or the most painful thing - they buy tons of product but don't have anyone coming to their site to buy it.
Dig deep into what your customer needs and what they are really shopping for

I signed up for the Online Boutique Source course in October 2015 hoping to gain a little knowledge on opening my own online boutique. What I received and am continuing to receive is so much more. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge about Facebook, Google and Pinterest just to name a few.
Akilah really knows her business and she is an excellent instructor… the course has guest speakers, step by step instructional videos, and the online Q & A’s are lifesaving.
Before joining the Online Boutique Source I never thought I could create my own website. I am so glad I took this course with Akilah, her knowledge, patience, and professionalism cannot be beat.
I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to start their own online boutique or to anyone looking to upgrade the site they already have.

Who is the Blueprint for?
The Blue print is for you if you are still researching, waiting, and just not sure what to do next to start an online boutique. Even if you’ve done a few steps like picked a name or submitted for your EIN the Blueprints step by step process will help you go from ideas and confusion to running an open and successful boutique.
If you already have an open boutique and you are struggle with sales, or you are just about to launch and just need the push to finish then I recommend looking at the Boutiquers Success Vault
How much time do I need for the Blueprint lessons?
The Blueprint is a 10 weeks program we will have a new module to review. I recommend devoting 2-3 hours per week to review the modules and complete the assignments. Some weeks where we are focusing on build the website or writing our marketing material may take a little longer.
Will there be any 1 on 1 help in the program?
The Build Your Online Boutique Blue Print is a self-paced video course designed to give you everything you need to move through the program on your own. However, because I know there are always a few questions here and there is a discussion section on each page where you can ask questions, get clarification, and give feedback on the lessons. I monitor the discussions every day, so you will still have plenty of open access to me and my staff.
Also if you feel you need even more support, We've added a VIP level with designated calls for VIP session and more hands on support.
What if I can’t complete the modules each week?
If you miss a module or need a little time it’s no problem. The great thing is you have 6 month access to the course so you can work through it one each week, one every other month, or whatever you need at your own pace. Also I monitor discussion of all of the modules regularly so even if you ask a question on a module we’ve passed you’ll still get the answer and support you need.
