Some great news for the golden boy and serial entrepreneur, Trent Silver: his purse business is taking off in leaps and bounds. Despite some minor legal issues in the Cash For Gold business, he had made a name for himself very fast in the industry and is the genius behind several successful businesses on the net. His new business model of buying and reselling purses looks like it will be a hit.
Already despite being only a few months old, his purse business seems to be taking off. So much so that he has already bought another business, Persenickety.com a successful purse blog in order to use their audience to drive more sales. I knew when I first talked to him that he’d be continuing to grow businesses, but I never thought he’d go from the Cash for Gold King to the Cash for Purses..ummm.. Queen?
More information about this acquisition below:
CashForPurses.com, the online purse exchange site, has acquired content site Pursenickety.com, The Designer Purse Blog, in an effort to provide further education and information to its customers.
Unlike CashForPurses.com, which allows customers to sell their designer handbags, Pursenickety.com will be strictly informational. “Since we are committed to educating our customers so that they can make informed decisions regarding their purse transactions, acquiring Pursenickety.com just makes perfect sense,” says CashForPurses.com founder Trent Silver. Silver is a veteran digital marketing and interactive advertising expert, having started his first successful recommerce business at age 18.
Mark Knowles, founder of Pursenickety.com says, “Much as I hated to let go of Pursenickety, things move on in the Internet faster than almost any other business model. When I saw CashForPurses.com, I immediately knew it would be a perfect fit.” He adds, “I wish CashForPurses.com the best going forward.”
Pursenickety.com, founded in 2008, contains hundreds of articles covering all aspects of the world of designer purses, including such names as Dior, Coach, Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin, Chanel and more.
“The designer purse information is excellent, but what first caught my eye was Pursenickety.com’s Eco-Friendly section,” says Silver. “Our company is dedicated to addressing environmental issues – CashForPurses.com is, after all, a form of recycling.”
