York Ventures primarily sells products online via Amazon, utilizing their fulfillment network. This is a reorganization of how the business was established, but done for success.
In late 2017 we began selling on Amazon and in early 2018 began utilizing the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) network. This means that all of the products customers purchase from us thru Amazon are shipped by Amazon and are eligible for the free 2 day shipping for Prime customers. Our Amazon seller name was rebranded as Maxx Buy which has it’s own website MaxxBuy.com.
In early 2017 York Ventures branched out into E-Commerce with the launch of the website GetGear.org which sold outdoor sporting goods with an emphasis in fishing gear. The site was hosted on Shopify, but the site has been migrated to a self hosted solution. Unfortunately this site is not fully functional.
York Ventures also offers Electrical Engineering Consulting services, Online Marketing services, and sells Domain Names. For information on my experience and expertise in Electrical Engineering see my Linked In Profile. The types of online marketing offered are Affiliate Marketing, small businesses marketing, and e-commerce marketing. The online marketing traffic may come from social media(paid and viral), search engine marketing (SEM), search engine optimization (SEO), email marketing, Pay Per View (PPV), or various forms of media buying.
The business started out and continues to work in affiliate marketing, which promotes products and services from companies that are available to a wide audience like nationwide or internationally. Some of the brands promoted can be seen on this page. You can learn more about affiliate marketing from this page, including some of the affiliate networks supported.

Business Structure and Other Ventures
York Ventures was founded in 2014 and is based in Ventura, CA. In the spring of 2016 it was given an award as the best small marketing business in Ventura.
York Ventures was registered in Ventura County, CA with 3 subsidiary business names which are York Internet, York Consulting, and York Maritime, however these subsidiary names have not been used. The business was established with the intent of offering online marketing, electrical engineering consulting, and maritime services. The Consulting branch of the business offers electrical engineering consulting services to support electronics. I had a contract to perform electrical engineering services for my former employer on an as needed basis but that contract has lapsed. See my Linked-In profile for background and experience at linkedin.com/in/wayork. The maritime branch was never developed.
