You have an idea of starting your own creative business but do not have the confidence to do it alone. You know you would be brilliant if you could only work out how to start and get those first few sales. You need to think about branding, websites and registering your business and all this uncertainty keeps you frozen in fear.
The thing is, this idea will not leave you alone and you know in your
heart that you're meant to be doing your own thing. But you just wish
there was someone who could take you by the hand and show you what you
need to do, every step of the way.
If this sounds like you, then we're delighted you've found us. We have the perfect solution to take you from pondering about starting to a place of looking back and wondering how on earth you managed to achieve so much while still juggling a job, kids and 'life'
This is about YOU and YOUR dream and we simply have the framework for you to follow to save you from overwhelm, fear and that naughty little voice in your head which tells you you 'will never do this so you may as well give up" ... NOT ON OUR WATCH LOVELY! We are sharing EVERYTHING we know to help you get there quicker and with out all the head banging we had to endure along the way.
INTRODUCING THE KEEPSAKE BUSINESS INCUBATOR CREATED BY THE KEEPSAKE CO. (EST in 2002.)
This keepsake business incubator is a simple six step process (Which forms the R- Reality in our C.R.E.A.T.E. T.O. S.U.C.C.E.S.S. program) which has been developed by The Keepsake Co. having spent 4 years supporting some of the best keepsake businesses around the world to go from a simple idea through to achieving their financial goals.
We know that anyone can build a successful keepsake business with the right guidance, motivation and mindset so we set out to create a structure around our wealth of information so people can work through in their own step by step. While we say you can do this in 42 days (if you are ready to get your head down and get it done!) you can absolutely take longer and enjoy this life long dream of starting your own creative business coming to fruition. It is all laid out step by step for you to follow along in your own time. If a family emergency happens then there will be no pressure from us added onto your shoulder like there would be in a franchise. We know what it is like to be a Mum (we are Mum's too) and the last thing you need when you had a poorly little one or some life disaster is to have someone tapping at your door asking you for commissions. This is why you pay no commissions to us on your sales.. we will never ask you for another penny on the sales you generate... sounds too good to be true I know (people tell us often) however this is what we are offering you. The chance to start your own business without the overheads, stress and pressure of a traditional franchise.
We want to help you create a business which will give you freedom, flexibility and perhaps more security than a job which may face redundancy at any time. It feels like an impossibility to start a business when you have no experience but this is exactly what we did and you now have our years of experience to dip into to ensure your avoid any of the mistakes we happened to make.
Our unique and indepth learning platform is full of:
We want you to build an amazing business which gives you the life you dream of. This isn't just a business startup package as this is tailored to creative businesses and more importantly creative souls who dream of running their own business but have the traits of a creative which can sometimes hold us back and make us doubt what we are capable of.
When you purchase this complete start up course you will receive all the training you need, training which we have perfected over the past 4 years, to get yourself set up, online and ready to take your first orders. This information is totally priceless and a very rare find as it is not often than someone is willing to "reveal all" on how they did it so you can go onto do the exact same thing.
"I have found amazing support and advice through the Keepsake Company. Everyone is very accessible, from head office to the members who I have regular contact with through our members only Facebook group. The people there genuinely believe in you and care about you. They want to see you succeed. It is amazing because you would think there would be massive competition with people out to jeopardise you but it couldn’t be more different. It means so much not to be alone. The support is amazing in all the different areas training and mentoring – of social media, training on products, new projects, growing your business and the excellent Mastermind calls we have to really enhance our focus on our goals.”

IF YOU TRY AND DO THIS ALONE THEN YOU MAY BE FACED WITH THE FOLLOWING ISSUES:
This is based on actual feedback from people who have tried it alone and then gone onto invest in one of our packages.
- You will feel alone and as soon as something happens which you do not know how to handle then you may end up shying away from the business instead of seeking experienced advice on how to handle it.
- You will 'guess' at how the products are made by following YouTube videos or investing in cheaper courses with someone who has not got experience in commercially selling keepsake products. There are many things you need to be aware of which if you don't know will end up landing you in hot water with customers later down the line and potentially cost you a lot of money to put right. It will also damage your reputation and will stunt your growth as you figure things out on your own.
- You may forget a vital part of the puzzle which could end up disastrous to the future of your company
- You may struggle to understand the simple principles of marketing which determine the success of a campaign and may assume that a simple advert will be enough to grow a business.
- You will have to create your own marketing and administration resources which have cost us hours and large financial investment or try and run your business without these useful tools do to lack of budget.
- You will be fearful about trying new things and pushing your business forward as you will be uncertain about how it will work and if it is the right thing to do.
- You will feel isolated and alone as there is only so much that your family and friends will want to talk "shop" with you.
- You will struggle with harsh customer feedback as you will not have a supportive community to seek advice and comfort from and reassurance that what you did was totally fine or receive feedback on how to avoid similar things happening in the future.
- You will pay more for your supplies making your margins smaller as you are a single person who can not command the same product discounts as a group as large as ours can.
- You will end up spending more than you were trying to save by doing it alone with endless trial and error (trust me... I did it alone and wasted thousands!)
WE ARE HERE TO TELL YOU THERE IS A BETTER WAY:
We will take you by the hand step by step and show you what you need to do and be there live on the phone to answer any questions you have. You will never feel alone and will feel supported by the very best in this industry.
I joined The Keepsake co the very same day I handed in my notice. Work were no longer able to offer me the flexibility I needed to fit around my small children and my childcare options. I have worked since I was 15 years old and had been with this employer for 14 years. In a way I was glad they didn’t push harder to keep me. I needed to leave. They looked after me very well whilst I had my family and I will always appreciate that I got so much time off with them. The prospect however of returning after maternity leave and having 26 days holiday filled me with utter dread. I couldn’t sleep, I was making myself ill just trying to figure out a way to work my office hours around them. I was searching high and low for other options. All I could find were franchises. They didn’t appeal to me and I didn’t have the upfront costs that so many of them required. Then I spotted it, Victoria’s website. I showed my husband and set about some time to ring her. I was so nervous, once I had found this opportunity I couldn’t stop thinking about it and I knew once I had spoken to her she would either be changing my career path or dropping me back into the hopeless mess of filtering out franchises and pyramid selling options! I remember shaking when I was talking to her. I look back now and realise how much I needed this. She was lovely and once I got off the phone I talked it over with my husband and I went for it.
This is a huge leap to take. Not one I could do by myself. But the things I have managed to achieve in a few short months are pretty incredible. Both of my children have been poorly and there is no way my 5 days family leave would have covered it. I’ve been here for them and fitted in work in between and if I can’t get work done, that’s fine because I only have to answer to myself.
At every stage of the way Victoria has been there to answer my questions and there have been many. The whole group of ladies are wonderful and you can ask them anything, if you are thinking it, chances are someone else has been in the same boat. So I can now be self employed and still have interaction. I never feel lonely.
My only regret is that I didn’t know about this sooner. But everything happens for a reason
