Year Business Was Founded:
Tell us about your business:
We are new kind of invitation company dedicated to giving our customers the best price for an invitation around. We include envelopes and can customize out invitations without an additionalprice.
What inspired you to start your business?
I wanted to get invites for my daughters birthday party and I saw some cute ones on line that appeared to be 1.00 each, the total came out to
be close to 50.00 for 20 cards and that was without the envelope! Ican make these for a fraction of the cost and so I did.
What has been the biggest challenge in your business and how have you dealt with it?
SEO (search engine optimization) is a very daunting task. It has been like learning a new language and I am still learning. I’m not sure I will ever stop learning about it.
What would you say has contributed to your business success?
My customer service is a huge reason. I didn’t start this for the money and I am not in it for the money, I love invitations and I love parties so for me I want to offer and give people everything they want and when they get it they are thrilled and it makes me happy to do it.
What advice would you like to offer to other women/moms who are thinking about starting a business?
Be realistic it will take years to get off the ground and you have to stay dedicated to it. If you are not willing to do the little things, like learn a new language (seo) then you will never make it.
What is your favorite tool/resources you use for your business and why?
Social networking is king these days and I love Twitter. I watch where my customers are coming from and they are coming from twitter, no doubt about it, I think it is a valuable tool.
Share one business goal you have for your business:
I have an idea of a business that it full of artist even on the phones, lol. A business that hires artist and gives then opportunity to launch their art into the mainstream. So my goal is to create a creative workplace that feels less like work and more like play or art class.
