Interview with the Winner of the "Pimpin’ Your Website" Contest. Part 2
We continue our series of publications about the American Motorcycle Company project, www.AmericanMotorcycleCompany.com. Today's our second interview with Rich Sabb, unique survivor of a rare form of cancer (a non-Hodgkin’s type lymphoma), a biker, and a good man.
Tell us more a little about your business.
It's called the American Motorcycle Company (www.AmericanMotorcycleCompany.com). The original business was started in October 1901. I am now working on re-starting it with the hope to get it revitalized. My “start-up” goal is to organize a motorcycle web site where users may:
- sell their motorcycle-related items;
- purchase our leather goods;
- purchase branded custom-built motorcycles; and
- create a history section whereby over time I can build a database with photos and descriptions of early American Motorcycles and their manufactures/builders and often the Women active in the industry.
Please describe the overall business strategy of integrating the apparel and the bike classifieds websites?
My objective was to focus on getting more women involved in riding, using the apparel as a segway. In addition, I would like to have the History section included as my previous website had a "Women Who Ride History " category. It was well liked, and I want to give it another shot as a concept.
How did you define your ideal business niche?
Due to competition in Motorcycle Apparel sales and classified listings, my objective was to draw user interest by diversity; the history section – fun to read, the Listings Section – great to buy used or new motorcycles and antique bicycles, the Apparel section – quality products at a great price.
That was a second interview with Rich Sabb, the founder of the American Motorcycle Company. Let’s meet next time and discuss the future. Stay with us, hit Like and Follow to see the project unfold.
