MY BUZZ

Being chosen this week as one of the #SBS winners has so far been amazing and has given me a great opportunity to spread the word about Present Issue. Since Monday evening I have seen a huge increase in traffic to the website. I have also gained lots of new followers on Twitter and received so many lovely messages of congratulations as well as kind words about Present Issue. A wonderful opportunity thanks to the power of Twitter and the dedicated support of Theo Paphitis to help small businesses.

MY BIO

Present Issue was started by myself Claire, three years ago. It was during my career break that the idea for Present Issue came to mind. After a lot of research I thought the idea had some potential. The prospect of starting a business from scratch was a very exciting opportunity and I’m pleased to say the business is now going from strength to strength. Present Issue is an online gift service where you can send single issues of a wide range of popular magazines as a gift. The magazines are beautifully presented in ribbon with a handwritten gift card. We all love to read a magazine but we don’t always buy ourselves one. So at Present Issue we see magazines as an alternative to sending just a card or sending flowers but somewhere in between in terms of cost. You can send magazines to say Thank You, Get Well Soon, Congratulations, Thinking of You, or when someone starts their maternity leave or has a baby - but whatever the occasion there is something for everyone. As well as sending magazines for customers who order through the website, we also have a number of businesses who send magazines to their staff and customers. We send magazines to hospitals as well as home addresses and to the forces posted overseas.

MY BUSINESS TIPS

Running a business is a journey that is not without disappointments. It can be a bit of a roller coaster ride with plenty of ups and downs. But if you believe in what you do, have passion and determination then you will succeed. Also don’t be afraid to go outside of your comfort zone, keep learning and network with others!

Good news to see Amazon asking for packaging feedback on received orders #wastenot. Businesses must be responsible in their use of packaging
