There many occasions to offer greetings, but one of the most popular are the birthday cards. Quite possibly, aside from the holiday wish card etc. these may have been the very first. There is nothing better than offering a colorfully packaged gift that comes with a matching beautiful card with a fun message in it. These are made to cater to every age with either humorous or loving messages inside. The childrens cards usually have various popular cartoon characters. Then there are teen cards that are a bit more mature and in many cases more humorous. The adult cards range from extremely amusing and funny or with adult insinuations to the more serious. There are options also that cater to different ages, such as the joke about being over the hill. Another popular form of greetings are the anniversary cards. These are a great way to show your loved one you are thankful for that special day.
Do you need any new software or equipment like printers? What kinds of paper and decorations will your cards use and how much will the equipment cost that you need to start out? Competition and Demand for Product - Who are your competitors? What do you offer that your competitors do not? How will you make your product unique so that you offer something that is not available now to potential clients? Are you planning on marketing to businesses? Are you planning on marketing with a website and running your business completely online or will you be marketing to companies and stores with your product on shelves? Who already sells products like yours and can you compete with those who are already selling similar products?
I would definitely start your business online. This is the best way to test your products and find your market without the massive upfront costs associated with opening a store. Just recently one of the largest greeting card stores in Delaware, Coccia is shutting its doors after 35 years in the business. Back in February 2010, market research firm Mintel reported that the $11 billion greeting card business was being bombarded by new online competition. Its been staving off threats by introducing creative new cards -- think of the ones with music built-in, or others that allow purchasers to record a personal greeting. But the industry has been merely treading water for a couple of years now after strong growth earlier this decade, the report said.
The first thing you need to do is your research and planning. Then put your research and planning on paper into a business plan for your business. Once you have a plan you can execute it by starting with creating your designs, creating a marketing plan and executing it. You will also need to build a blog/website so if you dont know how to do this yourself then you will need to find a web designer to do it for you. What type of printer makes professional looking greeting cards? Any good quality color printer will work to print off your greeting card. You may find that a multi function printer is the best way to go so that you can scan your designs, print your cards, fax and communicate with clients and more efficiently run your business with one machine.
