General description

Global Movement: Van Nation is a unique brand representing a global movement of young travelers who seek simplicity, beauty, and adventure on the open road in an iconic VW camper van. Why: We love the VW Vanagon culture; with the camper meetups, friendly greetings on the road, and exchanging stories at beach hangouts. So, we started Van Nation for Vanagon owners to connect and share in each others adventures and misadventures. Launch: March 2017 we launched - an Instagram page, Shopify site, and first product: a members pin with a sticker giveaway. We had a positive response, and sales started building in correlation with instagram posting with no spending on advertising. Next, we simplified our logo for clothing and added a several t-shirt designs. Then, we added an interactive map to our site to easily visualize the Van Nation community’s locations around the world and share their instagram handles. Both the map and instagram fostered a strong sense of community by featuring our followers and customers. In November 2017, we stopped most our efforts on the business due to outside circumstances. Product Fulfillment: We are fulfilling sticker and pin orders ourselves using Shopify’s discounted shipping labels. We are also using Printful’s print on demand service to fulfill t-shirt orders, which eliminates the need to handle tshirt inventory and shipping. What You Get: Inventory - 50 Members Pins Inventory - 20 high quality “United We Roam” vinyl stickers Logo and Tshirt designs Shopify Website and domain Instagram with 6,550 followers Interactive Map 270 subscribers email with 50% open rate

Why should someone buy this store?

You should buy Van Nation if you have adventure van targeted products (or want to develop some) and need a unique brand to sell under or if you would like to develop community events revolving around adventure vans. The current audience we targeted was VW Vanagons but can easily be expanded to any adventure van.
