Three of my favorite questions asked by many students in the popular online Start Your Own Gift Basket Business class are:

  • How do I set everything up at home without intruding on my family space?
  • Which food products can I buy that will be perfect for most gift baskets?
  • Where do I find baskets that not only look good but are also affordable?

I’ve been teaching the gift basket class for more than three years, and questions like this from you and other aspiring gift basket entrepreneurs keep me 100% positive about this industry’s future.

What’s really great is that people in every area of the world love gift baskets. Individuals, corporations, and organizations buy them to celebrate and pay tribute to life’s occasions.

Individuals like you and me buy gift baskets for:

  • Birthdays
  • Housewarmings
  • Weddings
  • New Babies
  • Retirement
  • New Job

Businesses are and will continue to be big gift basket buyers. They need gift baskets to:

  • Introduce themselves to new customers,
  • Welcome executives and dignitaries to their offices, and
  • Congratulate employees on personal and professional accomplishments

Why you want to make gift baskets

Individuals and businesses worldwide benefit from gift basket giving. When you start making gift baskets for profit, your goal is to find and convince firms in your area why gift baskets are the one item that helps them make more money. That’s one of many lessons I explain in the online class.

If you’re thinking about starting a gift basket business and don’t know how to start, or if you’re already in the business and having trouble increasing your income, this online class is a good place to begin. You’ll have 24/7 access to me, and I answer most of your questions quickly after you ask.
