I created the gnoB Socket brand and website for my friends, father’s new venture. He saw a great opportunity in the market with the recent legalization of marijuana in some states and wanted to explore a different field. I proposed a vibrant brand composed of naming, logo design, e-commerce website, PPC campaign, product photography, social media campaign and business cards based on his budget and need to break into the market.
When I started this project I originally created a simple landing page utilizing Shopify’s Buy Button API to sell products. Unfortunately after about 8 months of successful business they were banned for selling “drug paraphernalia” since they are not located in California or a state where marijuana is legal. This prompted me to set up a custom shopping cart interface using wooCommerce and Authorize.Net, as well as finding a high-risk merchant who would allow them to operate. Setting up the new shopping cart system was a breeze and has proven to work even better than the original Shopify system did. I really enjoyed the creative freedom on this project and I’m very happy watching the fan base and sales steadily grow.
