How a Little Known Greeting Card Company in Boulder, Colorado, Turned a Simple Free Service Into $780 Million Dollars!
Now we’re going to cover specialty services and actually give a success story that we think is fascinating. It’s called “How a little known greeting card company in Boulder, Colorado turned a simple free service into $780,000,000.00.” This is a fantastic success story. These two people, Susan and Steven Shutz, who back in the early 70's founded a company called Blue Mountain Arts. They created poetry, they created cards, and they wanted to be something a little bit different. They wanted to promote a different kind of cards - not like Hallmark or some of these other large companies - just something a little bit different, so they could carve out their own little tiny niche and focus on that niche. That’s what they did for a long time. They just kept focusing on their little tiny niche. And certainly they weren’t becoming a multi- million or multi-billion dollar company along those lines. It is very difficult, as anybody in the greeting card business knows, to really wrestle with the big companies like Hallmark and Carlton Cards. But they kept plugging along. The Internet was an absolute boom for these two people. They were able to get out onto the Internet and, like we have talked about before, the Internet is the great equalizer. Previously they weren’t able to compete with the Hallmarks and the Carlton Cards. Now with the Internet they were able to. And they set up a website for their cards, www.bluemountain.com. Instead of charging for their cards, they had free electronic cards. They still sold all their products - they still sold their print cards, and their poetry books - but on the Internet you could go to their web site and you could design a card or take one of their cards out of their selection, and they had a card for virtually every occasion. You could have it sent to anybody on the Internet. This service grew incredibly. When someone would get a card, and they would find out that it came from Blue Mountain, they wanted to send cards to all their friends and family, and everybody that got those cards wanted to send cards to their friends and families and after a while their hits were enormous. In fact, recent numbers say that Blue Mountain cards gets 9.2 million visitors every single month. And in fact, they have consistently been listed in the top 15 web sites in terms of traffic. In a recent list we saw they were number three! Only after Amazon and Ebay on the Internet. And what are they doing? They are offering something free.

for some reason.say you’ve got thousands of sports autographs that you have collected over the years. We 7 . Maybe you like Beanie Babies. Maybe you like Logenberger baskets. it’s probably something that’s not going to make money for you either. After you’ve picked a market or a subject matter . Maybe you like to sew or hunt. We’re going to give you three. Find another hobby that you have. If you don’t see it advertised on the Internet auction sites. If other people haven’t figured it out already. that other people are selling those same kinds of products. Just about everything is available there. then you probably need to pick something else.literally anything you’re interested in! Maybe your spouse has something that they like to collect that you can turn into a money making venture. you have a very squirrelly subject matter. First.Boyds Bears maybe. Anything you’re interested in you can turn into a money making opportunity for yourself. Even if it is something that you’re not interested in. Maybe this could allow you to get your feet wet. Maybe you’ve got a collection of something . Maybe it is golf. There are rare exceptions to that. a hot subject matter that people are buying is a lot better than a hobby of yours that people aren’t buying into. you can sell your own products. If.what we would suggest you do is search the Internet auctions and find out. It might be gardening. Maybe you like collecting teddy bears . Maybe you like to collect sports collectibles and autographs from different sports events or famous sports figures. that we believe are some of the most important.something you are interested in . if you find something that lots of people are marketing. But. or wherever you decide to market. that tends to not be the case. There’s rarely an item or a subject matter that won’t be represented on the Internet auctions. Three Powerful Ways You Can Make Money With This Concept! There are many different ways to make money with this idea. briefly. We’ve heard people sometimes tell us that they like to search out things that they don’t see advertised anywhere because obviously no one else is doing it so they can make lots of money in that. but in most cases you’re not going to have success with it. then it’s obviously a hot subject matter and something that you can make money with as well. you’re probably not going to do good marketing it.The first thing you need to do is to decide what market you are going to go into. Anything you enjoy or your spouse enjoys you can turn into a niche market that can make you a lot of money. You’ll find most products that are for sale on the Internet auctions. There are many different subjects . On the other hand. to make sure. You can go into a hobby of yours if you have a favorite hobby. some strange subject or some strange hobby that you have that just isn’t available.
An example of autographs: you could buy new autographs or get new autographs to sell as well. some of them were on 3 x 5" index cards. the third idea . Buy as low as possible and then sell for as big a profit as possible to make money that way. or you actually tell them what you’re doing with it and offer to take a commission on the sale of the product. you can actually find products in that market area that people are selling for less than you know they could sell for on the Internet auctions. The point we are trying to make is if you have a collection of something that you’re interested in. you either just get the lowest price they’re willing to sell it for. or just turn your product and your inventory over. Become a broker for these products and actually go out and search for other people that have the same hobby or that maybe collect the same product that you’re talking about selling. It didn’t really matter much to him who they were. to sell your own products that you have to get your feet wet. although we don’t recommend doing that. Now. Maybe 20%. Turn around and make a huge profit when you sell them! However you do it. You can just get rid of yours and use those profits to buy new products. Some of them were on sports cards.actually had a good friend we haven’t spoken with in a few years who. He had huge notebooks full of these autographs that he had collected over the years. 30%. He had books and books full of them. Maybe you have to buy an inventory. you could start by selling off a few of your own products to get some experience and get a feel for how it can work for you. He was sending away all the time for sports autographs from various sports figures. It had probably about 15 years since he had started collecting these autographs. and convince them that you can turn it around for a profit. This way you actually become a broker for them. the key is to make sure you always buy low. had just written away. He just wanted to collect autographs. The second idea is to buy low and sell high. Depending on what market you’re in and which niche you choose.and this is one that we really recommend because it requires little cash outlay. That is the first idea. or wherever you end up selling them. actually broker it for them. With this technique. or maybe only 10% depending on the product. Maybe you’ve decided to get out of that market altogether. Then. but you can buy them for less than you can sell them for. since the time he was very young. Maybe you work with one exclusive vendor or person that has these products that you can sell and you help them sell all of their products on the Internet. You don’t have to put any cash up front. 8 . You tell them that you can sell it for them. You could search out these products and buy them low.

Sometimes the right use of the word “NO” can lead the right people to say “YES” to your products - and to sending you their money!
