There’s lots of information about gift baskets online, but where can you get real answers? Here’s three easy places to get gift basket help.

Support is closer than you think

My gift basket business idea was terrific, but my designs were horrible. I didn’t realize it until I attended a conference to speak about gift basket marketing.

What I knew about sales and presentation was well received by attendees. However, when it was time to represent my designs, I ran from the room. It was downright embarrassing.

Is that how you feel about what you create?

The Gift Basket Design Book

Let me congratulate you for realizing that your design expertise needs help (marketing needs help, too). That’s the first step to increase your knowledge about creating beautiful gift baskets.

Another definitive article on making gift baskets is a great option for you to read.

Don’t bury your head and hope that no one sees that you have no assembly knowledge. You’re not born with it; you must seek education through videos, a numerous online courses, and on-demand coaching, all of which I provide to new and current designers.

Some people take shortcuts to increase their expertise by asking designers on social media for opinions. That’s okay. However, it’s not always a good way to get feedback. Everyone is busy, and talented designers who service their clients don’t have time to help you design better.

I’m not stating this because I offer design services. I state this because it’s true. Long-time designers who mind their businesses and get sales every day will not stop tending to their customers to give you a tutorial.

There are plenty of places to get help. Here’s where to start.

YouTube

Search for gift baskets on the world’s most-known video portal to find hundreds, if not thousands, of demonstrations. I operate Gift Basket Business Channel, one of many channels offering assistance.

Books

My hope is that you can find gift basket books on library shelves and at bookstores that are still open in your area. My second best-selling industry book, The Gift Basket Design Book, includes color photographs showing step-by-step design techniques. I’m honored that talented designers allowed me to display their popular designs in one chapter.

If complete help on starting a successful gift basket business is what you need, then How to Start a Home-Based Gift Basket Business is your book.

Gift Basket Coaching

This mentorship option provides you with information and clarity about your business whether you’re just starting or have been in operation for years. You choose the problem and how long you want to discuss it to uncover the right solutions, saving money and time in the long run.

Extra bonus: Pinterest

What a treasure-filled site where people share photographs of gift baskets for every imaginable occasion. You won’t see videos, as on YouTube, but you will see beautiful designs and get links that take you to videos. Here is the link to my Pinterest boards.

These three places (plus one extra) are a great start to take your designs and overall business from so-so to spectacular. Best of all, you don’t have to ask anyone to help you because help is available on these sites.

Why put your design fate on hold, waiting for someone’s feedback, when you can pursue help on your own?
