---- Can the small guy still start a new site and see success?

Lots of talk about SEO and code, but... What do you know about women's apparel? Maybe it's not the site. There's only so much you can do with a site itself. I think you have to know your customer on some level.
I would consider myself a "man's type of man" and as such cars and guns and ultimate fighting all appeal to me.
When trying to describe women's apparel....it's so hard. If I were instead trying to describe a camshaft that would make your 2012 Mercedes Benz E63 run faster, then I would be able to do a masterpiece of a writeup.
The only reason I bought this site was that the price was right.....and I used to sell on Ebay 8 years ago. We would go to the local Goodwill where they clearanced out everything for $1. We would buy brand name used clothing for $1 each, then come back and make a $30-$40 profit. At that point in time, I was broke as a joke, and my ultimate dream was to start an ecommerce website that sold clothing.....because well....it was cheap and easy to ship, I guess.
How many unique visits do you get per day? We're currently in the $30K - $50K per month range and we get 1200 - 1500 unique visits per day. Our average sale is $40
We aggressively market bloggers and youtube.
On average, I get about 50 visitors a day. Mostly searching for off versions of our brand name. One or two search for our "holy grail" keywords, and they browse upwards of 10 pages each.
When you say you "aggressively market bloggers and youtube".....does this mean you pay them to review you? Or do you just ask them for you to do a writeup article in exchange for a link back?
Also, can I ask you where the majority of your traffic comes from? Youtube and Bloggers? Are you ranking really well for your "holy grail" keyword (that pertains to your industry)?
