General description

The Embody Peace and Love® story:
My name is Thomas Hillman, and I founded Embody Peace & Love® in 2009.
Why am I doing this?

Channeling his inner hippie, Hillman is bringing back the essence of the 60s with a contemporary twist. "Flower power has morphed into green power, and my goal with this line is to remind people to tread gently, with each other and the planet. Times have changed, but what the world still needs is peace and love. Now, more than ever."
What is Embody Peace and Love® really all about?
Embody Peace & Love® was created to help raise the spirit and awareness of peace & love and its importance in our lives for the betterment of humanity. Please share our mission and support our business to help us do our part to make this dream a reality.
Our product designs bring back the essence of the 1960s with a fresh, fun, contemporary look. We donate 25% of our net sales to charity, so you can feel good about your purchase with us.

What have I put into the business?

Since 2010 I have literally posted daily on the mentioned social media pages to gain the following of over 26,500 friends.

Financials and traffic

Sales have been small due to basically no advertising on my part, but from word of mouth, and the Facebook page provides around 90% of the sales--again, without any advertising. I say no profit from sales because I have been putting 100% of the profit back into the company to keep it going and growing.

Q & A

Why should someone buy this store?

The mission statement is a beautiful thing.
Peace & love is needed now, more than ever--worldwide!
The products are original, cool, and loved by all the customers that purchase them. There is almost a 100% satisfaction rate for these products. Our customers tell us they love the message, design, and excellent quality of the products. I believe with a stronger and more managed effort the Embody Peace and Love® brand can grow tremendously.

How can the future owner improve the business?

A marketing plan, advertising, SEO, email, and continued social media directed to the current 26,500 followers base.

What work have you put into the store?

I have personally designed the entire content and original products for the store, and loved doing so. And, I created a word document that is a huge collection of inspirational quotes from the ages, including original quotes and poetic expressions by me, and have hundreds and hundreds of organized images you can use (content and images) for social media posts.
