Zabrina is a designer and came up with the concept of Goodie Tins. Since then it has expanded beyond baby products to hostess gifts, food items and even pet Goodie Tins.
Goodie Tins are the more sophisticated cousin of the gift basket. We are taking on the big boys in the gift basket industry by offering a super stylish alternative to the tired and stodgy gift basket.
Best Success Story:
Our best success story is being selected as a nominee and chosen as a finalist in the 2012 She Knows Parenting Awards. The coveted award recognizes outstanding products in the parenting and pregnancy industry based on functionality, quality, safety and convenience.
Goodie Tins was chosen from thousands of entries and will go head to head with other brands during the voting process this November. It is an honor to be placed in the same distinguished company with other successful brands. It has also validated that Goodie Tins was a good idea.
Biggest Startup Challenge:
Our biggest challenge has been building awareness for the company.
As a small startup it is hard to know where to go to get meaningful exposure. The initial reaction to the product has been great but we need to multiply that by one hundred thousand.
#1 Tip for Entrepreneurs:
Leverage as many resources out there, as possible.
We’ve been fortunate to learn from people in the industry and there is a lot being written about many topics that apply to us. We use other success stories as case studies of what to do and what not to do.
