Creating Beautiful Gift Baskets
Creating gift baskets is really fun and creative, however contrary to popular belief there is so much more to creating a gift basket than adding a few products, wrapping it and adding a bow.
Our easy to follow videos will not only help you to consider what I like to call the 'mechanics' of gift basket design but will help you to develop your own unique creative style.
Don't worry our main videos run you through everything step by step, including which problems to look out for and how to overcome them.
You Need A Plan
Regardless of whether you are just starting out or have been in business for a while, you need a plan. Business plans can be quite daunting, but they needn't be.
Unless you are writing your plans for investment or loan purposes you can actually keep these quite simple, and we have some great tips for members on how to make the whole business planning process easier.
If you are wondering why you need a business plan then take a look at this recording of a webinar that we did some time ago covering exactly why it is so important to have business plans.
You Need To Price For Profit
In order to grow your business effectively, you simply have to price for profit. Now although there are many home-based businesses out there that are pricing really low, you simply cannot and should not compete on price, you will never grow your business this way.
Check out our video on the importance of pricing for profit and how you can overcome the problem of low-cost sellers.
We have numerous articles available to members on how to price for profit, plus a handy little template that calculates your selling price at a variety of profit margins.
The Importance Of Marketing
In order to get customers, you need to do some marketing. Marketing is not quite as scary as you might think. In fact, one of the biggest obstacles in marketing is your own mindset.
Take a look at this video to see exactly how your mindset can stop you from marketing effectively.
Once you discover how your mindset can affect your marketing, the task of marketing to new customers will become so much easier.
