Amazon Marketplace – Day One: Stories of Entrepreneurship | Christine Krogue, Mama Moon


I started
as a stay-at-home mom, I have four boys. I just kept thinking of
things that I thought could make my life easier
and their life easier. I live in Salt Lake and it’s really cold. And my youngest, he just
kept throwing his socks off everywhere we went. And he’d get really cold feet. And I just thought, “there’s got to be a better way for this!” So, I got a pair of thermal pants and sewed some socks on them, put them underneath his clothes. And voila, he couldn’t
take his socks off anymore. And after I started selling that I decided, you know, I had some other ideas. I have one product called The Tot Tube, and it’s a toy ramp and you can roll cars and balls down it. And the reason I launched
it is because my son’s speech therapist was always looking for new toys to, like, help the kids get
excited about learning. Everything I create I
kind of see a need for in my own home, or in my own life. And then I try to share it with others. My name is Christine Krogue, the owner of Mama Moon Boutique, and
I’m from Salt Lake City, Utah. I began selling on Amazon about mid-2011. Amazon brought millions of customers right to my products. They type in what they’re looking for, baby clothes, laundry
products, and there I am. And I went from a couple sales a week to hundreds of sales a day. It’s been really great in terms of work/life balance and flexibility for me. I do my children’s carpools, I take them to the piano lessons, I can be home when they’re sick. The biggest thing that
I think pulls people to buy your products are the
reviews and word of mouth. So you want it to be something
people want to review, they want to get on there
and give you five stars and talk about it. So I would say, develop
something you’re excited about and that you know other
people would be excited about. And then just do it. Bring it out there.

  1. I just bought 8 of the wool dryer balls to use instead of dryer sheets. Christine is great to deal with directly. Buy these and cut your drying time.
