20 Free Tips and Tools  to Attract More Clients and Profits


spacer

I’m Flora M Brown (read my bio if you don’t know me), and for more than seventeen years I’ve run a successful gift basket business, presented dozens of gift basket classes, led a gift basket professional network, and helped many others with starting a gift basket business.If you’re a gift basket designer who wants to add pizzazz and increased profits to your gift basket business, I want to share with you techniques, tips and strategies to help you attract more customers, offer a superior service, and have fun in your gift basket business.Just a few scenarios to demonstrate the possibilities:

  • You are just starting a gift basket business. By learning valuable tips and strategies from the beginning, you start off running your gift basket business successfully.
  • You have been running a gift basket business. You have a few customers but are frustrated by not being to generate the profits you want and a loyal customer base. Putting some key tools and strategies in place can help you attract perfect prospects for your services. You will learn to promote your business using the most efficient ways to market your business as well as manage your inventory, price for profit, run your office smoothly and choose the best payment and delivery options.
  • You have discovered that gift basket classes and conferences have dwindled. You may have enjoyed attending gift basket classes, seminars at major gift shows or attending gift basket conventions to add to your knowledge and skills. With fewer options available you may also have decided that it’s cost prohibitive to invest the registration, airfare, hotel, rental car and other expenses that make attending these shows.
  • You want to extend your gift basket business from part-time to full-time. Maybe you recently retired or were laid off and now have time to expand your business into the profitable endeavor you know it can be. You don’t have to be an expert in every aspect of running a successful business. Through this home study course you can learn from professionals in the gift retail and gift basket business who survived several economic downturns and are ready to share their success stories with you.
  • You have a hobby or specialized interest. Turn your passion for creating gift baskets into a gift basket home business—part of full-time—that will become an income source by learning from experts and enthusiasts how they have done the same.

If any of these scenarios describe your situation, the home study course I have created is perfect for you.

Introducing the first home study course in the gift basket industry.

My 7-week Gift Basket Business Home Study Course offers a unique combination of instruction, feedback and resources that help you grow your own successful gift basket business. Each weekly module presents a teleseminar that was recorded live as well as additional readings, audio tips, an interview with an industry professional, design tips and resources. This course makes it easy and convenient to gain the knowledge and resources you need all from the comfort of your home.

You know those list of questions that you have piling up? Need fresh advertising ideas or want to know what to say to get customers interested? What would you give to be able to check off your whole list of “Find Out How to…” and where do you find all that information?Easy. Just ask Flora Brown. I found the information that I received to be of excellent value. In particular she had helpful suggestions and links for further information on the variety of topics that I had questions about regarding networking, photo shooting, marketing etc… As I continue to grow my business and have further questions or problems, I know who I can turn to knowing that I will get useful advice.

Comment from subscriber about the website course:

Thank you so much for offering this course. . . I found it to be very informative and a great help. I had a basic web site already designed but by using the information in your course, I think that I made some major improvements to it.I used to design web sites many years ago when I worked for a computer company, but this was my first web site for myself (You get real fussy when it’s your own). I would without a doubt recommend this course to anyone in the gift basket business. Thank you again.

I really enjoyed the lessons learned and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m VERY new to the business and am attending my very first craft fair this weekend as a way to “get out there”, and I needed a few low cost ideas (yet still beautiful!) so this was perfect timing for me! Thanks for the ideas and keep ’em (e-classes) coming!

How is this program unique? In addition to this being the first gift basket business home study course, numerous components make this program stand out from other seminars and training programs.A multitude of business options: Most gift basket business seminars assume you share the business goals and resources of the person sharing their experience. When this isn’t true, much of the advice becomes useless. Instead of sharing just one person’s experience, however successful, the Gift Basket Business Home Study Course gives you many viable business options to learn from. A multitude of tools: Likewise, instead of providing ideas and tools from one person sharing what worked for them, you get tools and samples from a variety of gift basket business professionals. In short, the Gift Basket Business Home Study Course is a comprehensive how to gift basket learning experience, including not only instruction but also the practical tools, encouragement, personal help and support that help you create success on your own.
