Case Study: The Business Issue and Our Solution
In the e-commerce world, we tend to hear a lot about online revenue and online sales. While this is certainly an important measure of success, it shouldn’t be the only one—or even the most important one for that matter. What about your traffic? Having a large number of visitors alone does not mean that you are getting a return on your investment. However, increasing traffic with a good conversion rate is extremely beneficial to the long-term success of your e-commerce business.
At Brick & Mortar Mix, we recently worked with Di Bruno Bros., a gourmet food retailer in Philadelphia, to help increase their visibility on search engines and therefore boost their traffic. This was an especially exciting project for us because of how much potential it had for growth.
The Business Issue
Di Bruno Bros. has been selling gourmet food online since 2002 and has seen great success over this time period but wanted to take their e-commerce platform to the next level by increasing the amount of relevant traffic they were receiving each month. They knew they had solid content on their site but needed more people to see it! They also wanted a larger presence in search results when consumers were searching for “food gifts”
Case Study: The Business Issue and Our Solution
The company manufactures an extensive line of high-end brick, mortar and stucco products which are distributed to both retail and commercial customers. They deliver their products using their own fleet of trucks which they sell to the distributors at a cost plus margin. The distributors then sell the product to the end users. The cost plus margin that the company adds to their delivered price is based on a variety of factors, including the truck fuel costs, labor costs, material costs, etc.
The company was seeking a more accurate way of calculating their cost plus margin for every delivery by factoring in every variable that affected each individual delivery. This would allow them to provide better costing information for their customers as well as create better efficiencies in the delivery process.
Our solution was to develop a vehicle routing software application that allowed them to input all of the pertinent information for each delivery such as sales order information, driver salary, fuel costs, price per tonnage and number of trucks required for each order. We then calculated the total cost per sale by multiplying this data together with the number of sales orders scheduled for each route.
A growing number of businesses are choosing to eliminate or reduce their use of brick and mortar operations, which saves them money and expands their reach to a broader audience. The blog above is an example of a business that has chosen not to operate bricks and mortar stores for various reasons.
This company chose this method because it allowed them to scale faster and allow the founders more flexibility in their daily work schedules. They also believe that they can better serve their customers with a more personalized experience. Finally, they noted that they could save money on expenses related to rent, electricity, and staffing costs by not operating physical locations.
They do have some disadvantages though such as being dependent on technology like Amazon Web Services (AWS). They also had trouble finding employees who were willing to work remotely when they first started out but have since adjusted their hiring strategy so this isn’t as much of an issue anymore.
It’s important for all companies considering opening up shop online first before making any final decisions because there are some pros and cons involved with making this transition from running traditional operations like those found at Walmart or Target (both large retailers with physical stores).

The brick mortar mix can be a difficult task, as it is expected to last for many years. But the problem with this requirement is that the mortar mix may not last as long as you think. If you have been using your brick mortar mix improperly, you could be causing damage to the brick itself and even putting yourself in danger of a fire.
So what’s the solution? The best solution is to use a brick mortar mix that does not contain lime. Lime is a natural ingredient that has been used for hundreds of years to create building materials. It also has been known to contain trace amounts of asbestos, which can put people at risk for lung cancer and other serious illnesses. The only way to avoid this problem is to use a mortar mix with no lime in it at all.
At the same time, lime is considered an essential ingredient in building materials because its high calcium content makes it extremely strong and durable. Therefore, if you are going to use a mortar mix without lime, you need to find one that contains high levels of calcium in order to make sure that the mortar will last for many years.
One of the best things about a lime-free mixture is that it will make your project easier and more affordable than ever before. Lime-free mixtures
When we are asked to suggest a brick mortar mix for a particular project, we often get thrown a curve ball. We’ll hear something like “I’ve got this thin brick and I want to use cement mortar because it’s cheaper than mortar mix. Is that okay?”
The answer is no, it is not okay. Cement is not the same thing as mortar, and using cement in place of mortar is going to cause you problems.
A properly designed foundation and mortar for your stone wall will last for years. In this video we will show you how to build a stone wall foundation and mortar that will outlast the brick or stone used in the wall.
A foundation is needed to spread the load of the stone wall evenly over a large section of ground. We are building a stone wall from local fieldstone and our foundation will be built from clay fieldstone. The first step when building a stone wall is to dig out all sod and grass from the area where you will be building the wall.
Next, use a 4 foot level to mark where your foundation stones should go, making sure each line is level with the previous one. You want your stone to be under the ground at least six inches so it can’t move out of place or frost heave during freezing weather.
Once you have all your foundation stones laid out as level as possible, it’s time to mix up some mortar. To make mortar mix, combine three parts sand with one part masonry cement in a wheel barrow or plastic tub. Then add water until you get something similar to peanut butter (not too watery). Use a trowel or hoe to mix everything together until it has an even consistency.
