I’ve been so busy grilling and filming (have you seen the VLOG posts), that I’ve been neglecting my writing! The biggest news in the Grill Charms™ world is the update that will air on Season II of Shark Tank Friday April 1 on ABC 8:00E/9:00C. I’ve heard there is a promotion for the show involving me, a private jet and champagne… very mysterious…. ;) I haven’t seen it yet, so I can’t say for sure! I’ll also be announcing a special Shark Tank coupon code for those that buy during the show, so make sure to follow Grill Charms on Facebook and find my at @grillcharmer on twitter.
In the blogsphere The Mom Chef took Grill Charms for a spin:
As did the PI of products:
Thanks Mom Chef and PI!
The majority of my business comes from the wholesale market. I’m trying to balance that out a little and gain a few more online sales. In doing that, I am now working with Greg Hoffman of Greg Hoffman consulting http://www.greghoffmanconsulting.com . to see if through the enigmatic world of affiliate marketing I can get my retail vs wholesale numbers a TAD adjusted. I’ve never claimed to be an expert at ANYTHING, so I certainly don’t have the answers, and like everything I’ve done up to this point, I’m winging it and see what happens! ;) I CAN say that Greg has been such a wealth of information, and I have been very impressed with his work so far.
Being that it is grilling season for some of us, and FAST approaching for others, I have been tearing up the phones with calls to kitchen/grilling/gift stores across the US. I have a little system since my product is so seasonal. In late February the push is on and I start in the lower latitudes. Then as the season and months progress and people start to thaw out, I work my way up the US. I’ve found that store owners just don’t want to talk about grilling out when they are still buried under 5 feet of snow! That’s about all the excitement right now, but stay tuned for more updates and more grilling videos at it stays light later… THANK GOODNESS! So glad to see you spring!
