Ecommerce success story – selling log beds

Six years ago my brother moved to Montana so that he could manufacture and sell log beds. His company is called Montana Log Outfitters.

He built a factory on 10 acres and started selling beds on Yahoo Store
and eBay. Today he sells hundreds of log beds per month. Not bad for a
high school dropout–albeit one who has always had a knack for making
and selling things.

The internet has enabled him to have a great life style. His customers number nearly 10,000.

Now he is expanding his business through overseas manufacturing
arrangements and he is going to be doing a lot more internet marketing
and email marketing. Check out his very affordable log bed selection and get free shipping.
