The Start of Arkon Mounts
Aaron joined Arkon Mounts in 2000. Back then they were manufacturing mounts for cars.
In 2015 they took on a new dimension with live streaming and Aaron saw it as a wonderful tool to be able to connect with people and to promote their products in a new way. Aaron also saw an opportunity to tap into new communities such as the bakers and the crafters.
Live streaming has helped them stand out from the thousands of other sellers in the mounting category.
