  • In 2009, Daniel Rensing and his wife Stephanie launched The Smart Baker (@SmartBaker) to sell specialty baking gifts and products. He has since been featured in the Food Network Magazine as well as on the hit ABC show Shark Tank.

  • A true entrepreneur at heart, Ray Perkins (@inkjunkeyz) runs several online businesses catering to tattoo branded products. He uses Twitter, Facebook and especially Instagram to spread awareness about his store and products. Through his professional brand, he has amassed more than 99,000 followers on Twitter.

  • Inspired by a passion to help runners, Sandy Pearson launched BIC Bands (@bicbands), where she sells non-slip headbands designed specifically for long-distance runners. She credits much of her success to really understanding and interacting with her customers on and offline.

  • Nancy Queen (@nobleknits) runs a thriving online knitting store. She credits a lot of her success to creating a blossoming online community on Facebook, where she has more than 63,000 likes, as well as Twitter and Pinterest.

  • After seeing how fast her children outgrew their “lovely outfits,” Ruth Lopardo (@loveitloveit) was inspired to start a colorful, comfortable and eco-friendly baby and children’s clothing store. From humble beginnings in early 2010, she’s grown her business significantly through social media marketing.

  • Started by his love of rock ‘n’ roll, Dave Lando (@rockerrags) started Rocker Rags, an online clothing store for the hardcore music enthusiast. He uses social media, especially Pinterest, Facebook and Tumblr, to spread awareness about his rocking brand.

  • Andy Proctor (@Selffitkitchens) runs several kitchen cabinetry stores based in the U.K. He uses social media to spread awareness and establish thought leadership in his niche.

  • Inspired by her love of all things fashion, Rachel Silski (@rlbean1987) started a online clothing store earlier this year. To get a foothold with her new business, she uses social media to expand her reach.
