You'll learn their amazing story and vision. Before going to our interview questions we firstly want to thank Tamidee Boutique for this great interview.
Tamidee Boutique began in July 2020 during the Covid 19 pandemic by Tameka Dawkins. Tameka is originally from the beautiful Caribbean island of Jamaica. Born and raised in Jamaica, I am a mom of an 11 years old girl. Tamidee Boutique is a sole trader business that was set up to reach persons in the United States and United Kingdom who are high on fashion both in the retail and wholesale industry. After 16 years of working in Customer Service and Sales I became passionate about bringing quality clothing/fashion into the hands of anyone in need of a little “pretty and trendy me time” at a price that wouldn’t break the bank. Tamidee Boutique does just that!
Tamidee Boutique is an online retail store that specializes in female clothing. All our products are ladies wear which includes Dresses, Suits/Sets, Jumpsuits, sleep wears and wholesales items/accessories.
Our mission is always to provide an extraordinary customer experience and allow women to feel trendy and feel good with us.
I started my business in July 2020 during the Covid 19 lockdown. I had a 9-5 job at the time however I was no longer working from the office due to Covid 19. I started working from home where I started to do some researching/brainstorming on drop shipping during my lunch/break and spare time. My drive at the time was "I have to fine something else to do". I realized most persons were taking their businesses online or was looking to start an online business during the pandemic in an effort to have multiple streams of income. Prior to the Covid 19 pandemic I always had a passion for fashion and it was always my dream to own a fashion boutique. After years of working into customer service and sales I became passionate about bringing quality clothing and accessories in the hands of anyone in need of a little “me time/dress up time” at an affordable price.
Having an online presence is important in building a business and I thought ecommerce is a great place to start. After doing research I realized that Shopify was the perfect platform for me. The shopify facilities are amazing, from being able to choose many templates to be able to offer discounts and newsletter mailing list which was absolutely awesome! Shopify was very user friendly and even offers statistic about customers/visitors and sales. I had very little knowledge about drop shopping and shopify platform nonetheless I decided to start my business.
Getting noticed in a crowd of competitors isn’t easy, and it’s getting harder and harder each day. Our mission is to create an extra ordinary customer experience and to inspire women to look trendy and feel good with us. Firstly, we have to do our research and know what our competition is doing, so we try to uncover our competitor vulnerabilities and sure to play strength against them. What matters to us doesn’t always matters to our customers we have to ensure we listen to our customer’s needs and use what we find to further refine our business personality. Delighting our customers is a marketing strategy and investment for us, as happy customers will spread your name faster and we are all about that.
