Jodine has kindly offered to share "The Gummee story in brief, with great tips and knowledge shared throughout the talk. I had the idea for my product & I didn’t have a penny in my pocket (or in my husbands pocket!)
In four years, I have taken an idea for a product, launched it into many countries worldwide, turned it into a brand & am currently launching more products to cover the whole baby teething journey.
From how I found my manufacturers, developed the product, & did/do our market research, to how we do our marketing & deal with international buyers.
Getting a buyers attention? I can share tips on that.
Raising awareness of you and or your product? I can share tips on that. Understanding how to develop your brand? I can share tips on that. Marketing & selling? I can share tips on that.
Organising your tasks? I can share tips on that, too.
I am literally brimming, to over spilling, with the business know-how & information that I want to share. "
Its going to be amazing, inspiring and unbelievably useful
