The pandemic has truly reshaped businesses around the world. With the health risks posed by COVID-19, entrepreneurs turned to the digital space to reach their customers. Upon realizing the need for digital content, Kimi Weintraub built her e-commerce content creation company to help business owners find their customers amid challenging times.
Kimi Weintraub has been modeling for Amazon for years, but she realized that many brick-and-mortar businesses were overwhelmed with the idea of launching their products on this and other e-commerce sites. As a result, she felt the need to build a company focused on business owners who are unfamiliar with sales through e-commerce and social media platforms.
Since then, working full-time as a spokesmodel and commercial model while helping brands reach their goals in content creation, Kimi’s connections have soared. She sees herself on a stratospheric trajectory and does not plan on stopping anytime soon.
Kimi Weintraub’s content creation business took on a higher league as she did a soft launching of her brand on the new and exclusive app, Clubhouse. The platform exposed her talents and services to a wide range of clients. “Clubhouse has given me a huge opportunity to build connections with these business owners and drive sales to my company,” said Kimi.
On January 20, 2021, another game-changing opportunity knocked on Kimi’s door as she was given the chance to pitch her brand on Clubhouse’s Pitch Tank, a concept created by high-profile celebrities and multi-millionaires. It mimics the format of ABC’s hit show Shark Tank, where entrepreneurs would pitch their business or idea in hopes of gaining an investment and a strategic partner.
Pitch Tank’s panel was packed with big names such as Shark Tank’s Kevin Harrington, Undercover Billionaire’s Grant Cardone, and the founders of industry giants such as Netflix, Tinder, and Twitch. Also present were highly influential personalities, investors, and entrepreneurs. Kimi was chosen as one of the 2,000 people who would pitch their business before the panelists.
It was both an exhilarating and harrowing experience for Kimi Weintraub. “I was sixth in line to pitch. As I waited my turn, I was able to hear the five business owners before me that either did fairly well, stumbled, or straight up flopped. Not one person got a deal, then it was my turn,” she recalled. “I was given one minute to pitch, and pitch I did! By the time I finished speaking, I had at least five ‘sharks’ fighting to partner with me in my e-commerce content creation company. Kevin Harrington even expressed interest in working with me in his company, As Seen on TV, to be a spokesmodel”.
In the end, Kimi Weintraub chose Akemi Sue Fisher, known as the “Amazon Queen,” with over $2 billion in sales and one of the most trusted e-commerce brand consultants in the world. With Akemi, Kimi aims to scale her services, expand her reach, and integrate her skills with Amazon and other e-commerce platforms. As a female entrepreneur and advocate for women-owned businesses, Kimi Weintraub feels optimistic about connecting with a strong female partner.
Clubhouse has indeed taken Kimi Weintraub’s career to a different league, and she wants to inspire others to jump in. “I am living proof that dreams do come true, thanks to this incredible and much-needed social media platform. Stay tuned to see what “Akemi and a Kimi” can do together!”
