About this Episode:
On this episode of the podcast, we sit down with Edwin Ortiz, one of the founders of Rejoicy.com. Rejoicy creates digital storefronts and websites for small businesses while providing an online marketplace for the community to shop locally online.
Rejoicy was born after the pandemic because another business Edwin was part of, Luncher, had to be shelved due to people working from home instead of office buildings.
Edwin talks about his arrival in NWA at the age of 15 and how working with Fortune 500 firms had prepared him to venture out on his own to start a business. He is not alone and has an outstanding team of folks helping him position Rejoicy as an efficient e-commerce platform for local companies.
With Rejoicy, the barrier to entry for setting up an e-commerce page or website is as easy as texting some information to the platform. There is no excuse to make your products available online or make sure you have some web presence.
Hear the whole story on this episode. Edwin provides a lot of good insight and advice. You may want to take some notes.
