“How did you use data before SumAll?”
A small smile creased across Zach’s face. “I didn’t.”
Right now, data culture only benefits large businesses with huge staffs and millions of dollars in funds at their disposal. Small businesses don’t have the resources to have a data team analyzing numbers and searching for trends. Our team is leveling the playing field by bringing the power of data to small businesses.
“You’re going to make a ton of mistakes. I know I did first starting out. Don’t be afraid to make them.”Zach Crain, Freaker USA
Freaker came from modest beginnings. Started in Wilmington, North Carolina, founder Zach Crain discovered he had a knack for knitting koozies out of old sweaters. From there, his idea took off and he soon found a hosiery mill where his koozies could be manufactured from scratch at a much faster rate. To gather funds Zach started a Kickstarter and made an endearing video detailing the Freaker philosophy.
Social media is ingrained into the Freaker brand. You can see it every facet of their business, from their eccentric promotional videos to their highly interactive Facebook page where they continually update pictures from their tours. “We’re constantly on the move and we’re a really small team so we don’t have the time or money to have someone check on our numbers all the time,” Zach told us. “Before SumAll, we would check Google Analytics once in a while but we couldn’t really get any good insights from it.
They have a really messy layout and it’s hard to navigate. After signing up with SumAll, all of our most important information was displayed in a simple graph with deep insights. Keeping track of sales, how many units I’ve sold, and comparing data week over week is incredibly easy to do now.”
Zach and the team are on the road for a good portion of the year and were struggling to find a way to keep track of their data, so he downloaded the SumAll app on his iPhone. “Ok, this is how much money I made today, this is how many koozies I sold, I love it.” SumAll kept the same simple aesthetic from the website and transferred it to smart phones. All the most important information you need to monitor your business right at your thumbs.
“One last question before you go, Zach. What would you tell an aspiring entrepreneur trying to succeed in the industry?” Another smile formed at the corner of his lips. “You’re going to make a ton of mistakes. I know I did first starting out. Don’t be afraid to make them.”
