WHY I WANT TO WIN A MEMBERSHIP TO PRODUCT MARKETING BREAKTHROUGH
Entering contests is always a lot of fun, but few win the prizes. In this great contest from Product Marketing Breakthrough, there are 5 prizes and even a consultation prize to all those who do not win.
Here are the questions that I have to answer and tell the world, or at least those that read my blog, so here goes.
#1 - What type of business do you have, what is your business name and URL and where are you at with your business right now?
Markets of Sunshine is a two-fold business. First, it gives consumers the opportunity to buy handmade products at a discount when they sign up for our newsletter or join our 'buying' club. Second, it gives the small business owner, working from home, the opportunity to market their products as a group when they join Markets of Sunshine's promotion' club. Full size handmade products are sold in a gift collection each month from the website, as a way to promote the seller's products.
The web address is, www.marketsofsunshine.com
We are at a pivotal place with the business. For the last three years, we have done extensive marketing and advertising in magazines, on blogs, free classified sites, websites and in 2013 we even became involved in Celebrity events in order to find customer's in our niche market. We are getting closer to reaching our target market, but there are still areas that need a professional to help guide us in the right direction to open doors and bring in a steady flow of customer's.
#2 - How will lifetime membership in Product Marketing Breakthrough change your business?
Running a successful business takes a lot of hard work, time, energy and determination. It also takes a lot of money, which we don't have. Winning a free lifetime membership in PMB would open doors for Markets of Sunshine and it's members.
Based on what the program outlines, ("it is designed to help the creative entrepreneurs who have a product line. It covers all aspects of marketing your product line, including social media, online and offline marketing, wholesale and retail sales, publicity and website traffic and sales") the only logical outcome is a change for the better.
Having the opportunity to work with someone like Andreea, that is only dedicated to helping others succeed in their business would be a dream come true.
#3 - Where do you see your business 3 years from now?
Based on the current growth of Markets of Sunshine and where it currently is at, there will always be continual positive changes taking place. Providing eco-friendly products to the consumer will always be the core of Markets of Sunshine. Having our products offered on TV and in stores is where I see my business in the next three years.
