Webb Direct 2U

SBDC @ Clovis Community College

Suzi Webb first started her business, Webb Direct 2U, as an internet retailer in 2000. This was a challenge because internet retail was just beginning. In 2004, Suzi opened a storefront location and since then has expanded her online b usiness to include a personalized retail website as well as product offerings on several national online marketplaces. In the spring of 2000, Suzi contacted the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Clovis Community College (CCC) for assistance with starting her business and gleaning a better understanding of tax requirements. She worked closely with the SBDC team to develop a business plan and procure a loan to remodel and open her storefront location. The SBDC at CCC assisted Webb with recognizing every aspect of the business from cost of goods to paying taxes. In June of 2004 she was awarded the desired loan, and procured the property for this next stage of business. In 2006 the Roosevelt County Chamber awarded the business, the Harley & Faye Borden Award for impacting the community with the renovation of this property. In 2012, Webb Direct 2U was named in the top 25 percent of all clothing and accessory sales for the Amazon Marketplace. Over the years the SBDC at CCC has assisted Suzi with business planning, marketing, taxes, accounting, and specific guidance as an online retailer. Webb Direct 2U has grown to a viable business with unique online services and a personal convenient shopping experience for consumers. Superior service – SBDC at CCC (particularly Sandra Taylor-Sawyer) has been genuinely concerned about the growth and success of my business. They are extremely prompt in responding to questions and seeking solutions that sometimes require you to think outside

the box of traditional business practices,”
