It happened like a real-life fairy tale. One minute it’s July 2018 and bride Brea Fullerton is wondering how to get a dirty engagement ring to sparkle for her wedding photos, the next it’s November 2021 and Brea’s jewelry-cleaning business, Shinery, is invited to be featured as a Cyber Monday gift on Good Morning America’s Deals and Steals.
Of course, Brea accepts the awesome opportunity. Now all that stands between startup-land and national stardom is a stipulation in the contract requiring Shinery to fulfill approximately 3,000 orders in three days.
Enter: Saltbox. Well, specifically enter Saltbox’s eForce, an elastic workforce capable of just about anything. As a Saltbox member, Brea has access to this on-demand eForce team in addition to her Saltbox warehouse suite and logistics resources to make the GMA event happen. Saltbox makes the hardest parts of running an e-commerce business simple, and Shinery’s appearance on “Good Morning America” is proof of that concept in brilliantly executed action.
“By not having to oversee or assist eForce, I was able to manage the business side of the opportunity, watch our GMA segment, and trust that the fulfillment was in great hands.” - Brea Fullerton, Founder & CEO, Shinery
- A big nod to its products’ popularity, Shinery sold out 2 of 3 SKUs before the GMA Deals & Steals segment even aired.
- The eForce team built 2,000 boxes to prepare for the Shinery GMA event.
- In total, 2,637 orders were processed and shipped, including 5,431 single items picked and packed.
- There were 58 different order combinations, and 10 pallets of orders originating from all 50 states were filled for USPS.
