Small Business Spotlight of the Week: DressRush.com Laura | November 19th, 2010

Ladies, the wait is finally (almost) over! DressRush.com is opening their figurative doors soon,  but registration is available NOW! DressRush.com is a members only, online auction where you can purchase designer wedding gowns and accessories for a fraction of their retail price. Membership is free and the site is completely open to anyone who would like to join.

I recently spoke with Aaron Hall, Co-Founder of Dress Rush, and he just ran a small website design project on the site. The winner is still a secret and will be announced when the full site is revealed!

So make sure you check it out and tell any of your friends looking for gowns or accessories and, in the mean time, read what Aaron has for you to learn… (Oh! And like them on Facebook!)

1.  How did you get things designed before crowdSPRING?

We’ve worked with ALOT of different graphic designers….and while some of them were great, it took a lot of time to get what we wanted done.

2.  Why in the world did you decide to use crowdSPRING?!

Our graphic designer actually referred us to you since he was swamped at the time.  The concept intrigued me, and the results blew me away.  I couldn’t believe we hadn’t used this before, especially with all of the design needs we have.

3.  What’s the single best small biz resource that you’ve found (magazine, website, blog, etc.)?

Hmm.  I’d have to say Mashable.com.  I’ve been reading them since their start and they have grown into an amazing wealth of knowledge from social media, to tech…everyone should read them daily.

4.  If your best friend told you they were going to start a business, what’s the ONE piece of advice you’d give them?

Start small.  Use Crowdspring to create a landing page, then jump over to unbounce.com and get the landing page up quickly.  See if your concept gets people interested before you spend the bucks to build your idea.

Need something designed? Name your price. Pick from 110+ entries. Love it or your money back.
