Vedante founder and owner, Barbara Kantor, a 20-year veteran of the apparel industry where she mass marketed clothing to stores including Sears, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue, says she had “zero” experience in online marketing. Despite the odds, Kantor took to learning how to market online and says in the case study, “PRWeb has been a core part of my success.”

Kantor cites ease-of-use, customer service and results as the key reasons she’s remained a PRWeb customer for two and a half years. In terms of results, her business has performed exceptionally – her super-reflective accessories have been a hit in holiday gift guides and ranked as one of the best selling products in the outdoor gear category on In fact, her products sold so well, approached her about buying them directly.

“Barbara’s story is amazing and sharing her story offers insightful tips that small business owners everywhere will find valuable,” said Sophie Shiatis, vice president of E-Commerce for PRWeb. “Every successful entrepreneur takes risks, but the fact that Barbara did so in the face of a recession — and in the e-commerce space where she had very little experience, is especially compelling.”

When did you last paint your garden fence?

If you are a “big change” business, then you are like my garden fence. Leaving it unpainted for so long has created much more work, at a higher cost, than if it had been tended to every year. Ignoring reviews of your online activity for long periods also means you make more work for yourself and raise your costs.
