Camille Brinch Jewellery (Ecommerce)
In September 2019, I joined a really cool and exciting company. After knowing Daniel, Camille’s brother, for quite some time, we suddenly started talking about me joining their company. Shortly after, I quit my old job and decided to come work for them.
The company is an ecommerce jewellery business founded back in 2016. Camille started crafting her own jewellery and sharing the results on Instagram. One thing left to another and now she’s built a real company with great ambitions.
Previous jobs & projects:
After assisting the company with various marketing tasks, I got the opportunity to join CarBuddii and be responsible for their marketing, some product design and a bit of front-end development.
This site was originally used as the website for my small consultancy, where I helped small business with their online markting. Now I’ve turned it into a blog (switched from danish to english), where I share some of my newly acquired knowledge.
In the summer of 2019 I finished my Master’s degree in Business Intelligence with great results. Five years in the university allowed a lot of free time to chase different ideas and gain real-life experience while still being able to apply theory to those learnings. Since we’re paid to educate ourselves in Denmark, it can make sense. In countries where you’re not, I would highly reconsider spending five years building up your debt. This is why sites like Udemy exist.
Launch It / Bite (App development and startup)
Along three other entrepreneurs, we founded a app development consultancy which handled various projects. While doing so, we also started our own project called “Bite”, which allowed neighbours to share meals with each other. Due to disagreements, I decided to leave the company.
Without knowing a whole lot on printed matters, I started broking a large danish company’s products and selling it of our own site (yes, the logo is genius). Within the first three months, only using outreach in Facebook groups, we reached around $10k revenue which I’m pretty proud of.
After having started my first ecommerce business (see below), I wanted to experiment with affiliate, since I’d heard so many great things about it. With some very basic research, I found out that sweet potatoes were increasing in popularity. Therefore, I quickly found an affiliate site selling sweet potato powder and put up a blog. After not very long, I realised that my passion for sweet potatoes wasn’t as great as I originally thought and closed the site back down.
One of my very first “real” ventures was an ecommerce shop selling posters with designs that a girlfriend of friend of mine created. This taught me a lot about general ecommerce, building followers on Instagram and handling things like customs when shipping abroad.
