About Bradford LifeStyles
Welcome to Bradford LifeStyles.
Hi my names Kevin Thibault, I’m the Founder/Owner and General Manager of The Bradford LifeStyles E-commerce wholesale and retail website.
Thank you for stopping by. You are currently on the front end of the website which houses only a small handful of pages as a sampling and preview for public viewing. To access the full Bradford LifeStyles website and all of it’s features you must be a member.
The Bradford LifeStyles website is a work in progress and privately owned, members only online shopping community and e-commerce website. (more like a hobby than a business at this point as I haven’t made a cent and traffic to the site is dead.) As much as I would love to capture some of the crumbs of the 3 1/2 trillion dollar global E-commerce market place; With the expected growth to reach 6.5 Trillion by 2022. I don’t expect this to take off. I’m just a small time hack in this e-commerce arena and the E-commerce competition is fierce and there is no way I can compete with the big tech and E-commerce giants. (even more so with the recent pandemic) But it keeps me busy and I have fun working on the site and promoting American owned businesses and American made products. But the good news is you can help change that. I welcome all inquires. NOTHING VENTURED NOTHING GAINED RIGHT?
Back Ground & Digital Footprint
Carpenter & Plumber by trade, I worked most of my adult life in the building trades, building and remodeling residential homes throughout Boston’s north shore area and points north. This beautiful landmark to the right with a hidden wing attached to the back of the garage, has a 16 foot indoor swimming pool with a cathedral ceiling, walls and gable end all glass, and a multi-level outdoor deck that expands almost the entire length of the house is one of my favorites that I helped build back in 1989.
I’m now semi-retired and mostly just manage the Bradford LifeStyles e-commerce website and offer consulting & light cosmetic remodeling for small local area businesses who participate in the M.A.K.A.G.A Project (pronounced “Ma-Kar-Ga”) and who want to implement and utilize E-commerce into their Brick & Mortar establishments to increase their profit margins and grow their business.
I started Bradford LifeStyles in 2015 as an affiliate marketing website with a small handful of advertisers. Within the first year that small handful grew into a fleet of close to Four Hundred merchants and e-commerce retailer’s from around the globe. (Which I gave a pet named “The BLS Armada” and established a footprint on several e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, eBay, The Sears Market Place etc. along with a social presence on several social media platforms offering gateway links to numerous well known, loved and trusted Retail and e-commerce merchants in the retail market place. From B-2-B to B-2-C and everything in-between we provided a hub of gateway URLs for e-commerce consumers and businesses.
In Late 2016 I began shifting the Bradford LifeStyles website away from Affiliate marketing and began rebuilding and re branding the Bradford LifeStyles website focusing on selling direct from the website. A new site was built, offering a varied assortment of consumer products in several categories from gifts, to home essentials and outdoor living and lifestyle needs eventually settling and nesting into the outdoor living and lifestyles niche.
2019 brought the loss of our main distributor and Factory Distribution center when they closed up shop due to various market conditions and the fierce overcrowding and growing competition in the ever-changing e-commerce marketplace.
Thus, we enter 2020 rebuilding a new modified Bradford LifeStyles E-commerce website. We’re charting a new course with a small handful of manufacturers, distributors and a hundred thousand or so products to work with. Our 2020 playbook and beyond consists of several audibles and change ups. (newer, updated and modified business structure. I call “Operation Stone-age”) This is where the fireworks and fun starts.
