Why Ecommerce Sprout (Our Story)?
My name is Admir Gracanin, and I am the founder of Ecommerce Sprout.
The Ecommerce Sprout story begins back in 2008 when I built my first online store after spending days scouring the internet for advice. I was frustrated because I was not finding the information that I needed. I read multiple PDF guides and other walk-throughs, which were time consuming and inefficient, and led me nowhere. There was no reliable information that small business owner can benefit from.
Simply put, I had to figure everything out on my own – which the online store builder to use, what payment processer to use, how to find products to sell, etc. I made mistakes, I was scammed, I lost money, and more importantly, I was in the shoes of an inexperienced small business owner that did not know what road to take.
That is why I launched Ecommerce Sprout in 2008 as the single-best resource targeted to users that need assistance with ecommerce. Since then, Ecommerce Sprout has become the largest and most useful ecommerce resource site on the web.
