I’ve finally got into touch with Kevin again, who gave me his number in case I needed to contact him on such a shorter notice. I had an idea a few weeks ago to promote our product through YouTube. Instead of making a channel, where we wouldn’t post quality content anyway, I wanted to promote myself through Ryan Higa’s popular video series called “Teehee Time.” In these videos, he opens gifts from his fans, shows off the ones that he likes the best, and gives a very big shout out and thank you to the sender. Therefore, I had an idea of making him and his production team a few postcards. If we get featured in the video, that would be great advertising for our business. If we don’t get featured in the video, then it’s a good deed done. I discussed this plan with Kevin, and he agreed to make them.
There’s still no answer from Books Inc. about our new offer (50 postcards at $3.50 each), but Jeff agreed to let the team know.
Another person I got in touch with is Madison. I offered to give her another shot at another interview on Monday afternoon, but she didn’t text me back until 7:00pm. Therefore, I texted Dacotah today, and I let her know that I do not plan to add Madison to the team. I also texted Madison and made her aware of my decision. The two main reasons were my lack of knowing her and the amount of people already on our team. I was very happy with the decision and with the way I handled it.
The solution I mentioned at the beginning of the entry; it was patience. I find myself in a state of working a lot of the time, where my attitude towards anything on my agenda is “go, go, go!” This week, I’ve learned patience in a business: patience for a response, patience for others, and patience for you. I’ve learned to put time into my goals, and that’s how the result will be the best it can be.
It’s been a good two weeks since my last entry. In the near future, I hope to find new ways to market and get more sales to come in. I also want to find facilities with a laser cuter for us to use, whether they be in Orange County or The Bay Area. I’ve designed new business cards for myself, and I plan to print them out before school ends in case I run into someone who might need it then. Other than that, business is good right now. Everything is good right now, and I’m very happy with our progress.
