About this project

Hi! My name is Amy and I have a startup marketplace website of everything baby, toddler and mommy! The idea of The Baby Burp started when I was pregnant with my daughter and in the middle of a whole house renovation, special thanks to Hurricane Issac. 

I found myself shopping for nursery decor online and wanted a custom look. I was trying to avoid the packaged themed decor from the big box stores. Many hours of digging on the internet I found many custom and handmade baby products that were just what I was looking for. I also loved the idea of supporting small businesses. If only I could find them in one place for a one stop shop- thats when I decided to start The Baby Burp! One year ago almost to date, The Baby Burp was born!

The Baby Burp is online and running. We have many Sellers who have awesome products that you will not find anywhere else. New, handmade, custom, and innovative products made mainly from other moms who work from home themselves or on the side to provide income for their families.

My ultimate goal is to become the go-to website for everything baby, toddler and mommy! Future goals include giving a percentage of each months profits to charities that benefit babies and children. It's a WIN WIN WIN situation where you get a unique product, support a small business, and a percentage of profits will go to charity!!

My website needs to be top notch! I plan to use the funds on customization to the website to help the seller's experience and to be able to sell more efficiently. I plan to create an app for the website as well. I'm confident my website will be a major hit when everything is in line and able to run smoothly. I have to be able to compete with the other major marketplace websites out there.

Ever been so close but not quite there? I'm almost there....I just need a little help.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risks and challenges that I have found with adding customizations is something might come up that needs additional work tied into the customization. Or the customization needs an add on to make it work better. I'm pretty confident that everything fits in the scope of this project and will not need any additional work. Keeping the website up to date with the times and technology is going to be ever changing, so it is always going to be a challenge to keep my website up to date and working the best in the future. That is why it is important that I need it working the best now so I can make a profit and keep it up.
