|Did you know that the SBA reports that In 2019, the failure rate of startups was around 90%. Research shows that 30% fail in the second year, 50% in the fifth year, and 70% in their 10th year. If your business has outlived these averages, pat yourself on the back. You deserve it!
You must be doing something right. And I commend you.
But if you are wondering if can do more — or if you and your business is struggling — I have a gift for you. It’s totally free. Why? Because I want everyone in this industry to succeed. I want us to have a powerful industry — one where people stand up and take notice.
My gift to you — with no strings attached — is a copy of the complete February issue of the GiftBusinessSuccessINSIDER magazine. It’s a pdf file and all you have to do to read it is to click on the link that I am going to give you in just a minute.
I said that there are no strings attached. I guess that’s not totally true. I want you to share this link with everyone you know in the gift industry. Send it to them via email. Share it on your Facebook page. Get it out in any way that you have. And make sure that you read it yourself.
There has to be an ulterior motive for me to do this, you say! You bet there is. It’s called Marketing. And it’s what I used to expand the distribution of Arizona Singles, my first business, from just Flagstaff to the whole state of Arizona and beyond. And it’s what built my Real Estate business from one sale to a multi-million-dollar producer. And it’s what I have used since 1992 to grow my gift business from a small local one to a national gift service.
I want to introduce more people in the gift industry to what my current subscribers have known for years. That there is a resource available to do more than just sell them products. A resource to help them brainstorm for creative ideas to grow their own gift business. And the only way to do this is to SHOW them. And that is what this free issue will do.
This pdf magazine has been published since March 2010. That’s 11 years next month. If you, and others you know, haven’t been a subscriber for that long, you’ve missed a lot of valuable marketing secrets.
So, to wrap this up, I am asking you to read the free issue and, if you think it’s worth $2.50, to become a subscriber. But also I’m asking you to send this link out to everyone you know that would be interested.
This is just the beginning. There is more in the works as I revamp the website. You can watch the changes at giftbasketnetwork.com
But now, here is the link
Enjoy! And let me know what you think!
