Welcome to 22nd Edition of "Want To Know Wednesday"! Each week, I will shine the spotlight on a business or blog! It will cover the basic 5 W's and 1 H! Let's get to know Giveaway Bandit!
WHO is the person behind the business? "I am 32 years old, married, and we have a "sweet" (a little ornery too) seven year old son. We live on a farm in Northwestern Missouri. We love riding horses together and spending time outside. We love to stay busy and my son and I spend lots of quality time together. I am also a web designer and developer specializing in fashion ecommerce sites and WordPress blogs."
WHAT is the focus of your business? "We are a family friendly product video review and giveaway blog. We do post a few daily deals and freebies that we know our fans will love. We love to work with companies that really believe in their products. We love to help spread the word about their products and brand. We love to share our positive experiences when we try new products. It is our goal to bring more awareness to the companies we work with and bring new customers to keep trying their products. We are very passionate about our blog, our content, and our fans. We LOVE what we do! We also just received top honors (13th) out of thousands in the 2012 Startup Nation Leading Moms in Business Competition. We are beyond excited!"
WHERE do you business? "We live just outside a small town – Blythedale, Missouri. I think it might actually have around 200 people now. It's pretty big! Blink and you might miss us We love it though."
WHEN did you start your business and/or how much time do you devote to it? "We started in July 2011 as a "hobby" that is now a full-time work at home job that I absolutely love! I work many late nights and am able to work around spending time with my family. It's great!"
WHY did you start your business? "We actually started the Giveaway Bandit as a fun thing for my son and I to do. I am also a web designer and developer. He always watched me on the computer and wanted to be able to help. We came up with the "Giveaway Bandit" character and the rest came in to play… we have so much fun doing product review videos and giveaways. It really is the greatest thing to include my son and teach him valuable business skills."
