Mark did you ever have a successful date from the 2000 applicants?
I'm with someone, she doesn't hate me yet, so I guess it's going well.
If at any time you want to change that...get married!
Good luck with the trees. Years ago I was looking for industrial premises and viewed a big unit which was full to bursting with Christmas decorations. The company renting it bought throughout the year from China, then they said they'd clear the lot out and start again. They had other units around the country and were vacating that one for somewhere bigger.
Nice holding page BTW.
Anything from a basic tree to fully dressed up one so loads of pricing options.
Christmas Trees are a hassle to acquire and dispose of.
Idea is sound, delivering it is the actual challenge. Thought at first the name was too specific cos down the road you might want to supply Hampers and booze but the 'Tree' part does mean many branches after all.
People will pay if the feel it's going to save them a lot of hassle, time and effort. Christmas Trees can take up at very least a day and half's effort. Some people are going to want to keep it that way but others will want the convenience. Go for it!
Aww you need to propose on billboard if you ever do
@iamrofe Are you planning to add a transcription to the videos? I very rarely bother with videos to be honest
I'm the same, never really watch videos.. plus it's annoying for everyone else in the room. There's a transcript next to it though isn't there?
(I'm just guessing it's the same because I haven't bothered to watch the video)
We actually bought one online last year for the first time rather than walking five minutes to our local garden center so there is probably some demand. Our main reason was that my wife was trying to fine a specific type that she'd be less allergic to, so that's something you might want to have a section on.
This is who we used in case you want to see the competition: https://www.patchplants.com/gb/en/christmas/view-all/
Disposing has never been an issue for us though as the council just collect from the side of the road.
Anyway, good luck with it!
That's something I actually hadn't considered. I don't think I will because I want to be showing people how I do the marketing side of it, and it's going to be a little tricky explaining how I do things like keyword research, write up a press release, or PPC etc.
Reading the transcript alone will take me a lot of time and I think it probably won't make sense without watching the videos anyway.
Using a service on Fiverr.com may allow you to then create blog posts, and making your content more accessible to those who prefer to read.
I know it's additional cost, but could prove beneficial.
Transcripts are an important part of video content marketing after all, but that's fine - I get that's not the point of this
Oh calm down, Martin. If you send me £50 I'll transcribe the video, just for you
To be fair it is a valid question/request, as information consumption varies between individuals and could actually prove useful to somebody that might not be aware they could be excluding a reasonable sized audience from their target market.
Ben is just trolling, I can take it
No, I was genuine. I'll transcribe it for you for £50
Mark, I think you might be hoping a bit ;-)
Nice stunt Rofe
I'm not much a fan of the homepage
The lower part is much nicer, clear and easy to click on what you want
Would be much better if it opened similar to this
love the idea.
some sidenotes: 1) the only tree stand you offer is cinco advantage. even if the price for it is 30-50% more than ordering separately from online then that is an acceptable burrito. but would be nice to have some more eco-friendly-natural product on your list as well...you know the eco-friendly-hipster-stuff.
2) to support local designers i also would like to see the selection of their spruce ornaments, angels, northern stars, gingerman, etc. if you show their product on your website and give an option to order a tree that is decorated it might make them also more active to share the link to your website.
3) also would be interested in natural christmas wreath stuff (that looks simple, natural and can support local companies)
Hey @iamrofe - are your final numbers in? How successful was the site in the end?
