UPDATE:: Scott, Michael, and I recently sold the site. Unfortunately, the design has been radically changed. DO NOT GO THERE! But click the image above to see how nice it used to look.
Bacon has been exploding, literally, all over the internet as of late. And while it’s been on the geek/tech radar for a while now, there’s no denying its popularity. In fact, someone told me that bacon consumption was up 40% in 2008 alone. FORTY PERCENT!
So, Scott Kveton, Michael Richardson, and myself all decided to take our passion and love of bacon and do something about it. And the Bac’n website was born.
Bac’n is an ecommerce site selling real bacon to the country. We find the absolute best bacon we can get our hands on, from tiny little farmers in the East Coast, to Fletcher’s, who just makes fantastic bacon. When we find something we think everyone should try, we stock it and sell it.
The most exciting part of the site was we built the entire thing in exactly three weeks from conception, in the evenings of our full-time jobs. It’s a great product, and a great experience.
What I did:
I am responsible for most of the non-coding and non-business development activities. I work on marketing, advertising, SEO, content, and general direction of all creative. Since there are really only three of us in the company, we all wear a lot of hats.
