    Default work from home idea - what do you think?

    Hi All

    Im thinking of starting a new business from home that I would like some input/ feedback on!

    The basic idea is letters to your child from a fairy or santas helper etc. These will be handwritten, scrapbooked and decorated beautifully. They will also be hand written and individually tailored to your child.

    The idea is you sign up, and your child will recieve in the mail a fantastic Original one of a kind letter of your choice from Santa, the easter bunny, the birthday fairy or Elf and the tooth fairy.

    each letter can be purchased as a one off or in a yearly set (from the time of purchase). I havent worked out prices yet. ie Santa, easter bunny, birthday and toothfairy 'vouchers'

    Each letter will be hand written and decorated according to the theme or topic and eventually I will add home made cards and fairy costumes etcetc. Othere ideas could include a special letter for a sick child, hospital visit etc

    Parents will need to fill in a questionnaire about the child recieving the letter......


    Sooooo what do you think????? i would love some feed back please.

    Thanks, Kerrie

    I think it is a great idea.
    Personally i wouldn't use it myself as if i were going to give my child a letter from Santa etc i would just make it myself - due to limited cash flow - however i imagine many would love the concept and sign up.
    Good luck

    I too think this is a great idea. I think the price would be the only deciding factor as to whether I would use it or not - if it wasn't TOO expensive I'd be all over it in a flash! (please let me know if you do decide to do this as I will definitely be a customer)

    TBH I doubt there'd be too much profit to be made from such a thing. Hand made things take time & therefore you'd have to put a decent price on them which would ultimately narrow your market significantly.

    To get your product into the right market could be quite costly too. I presume a website would be involved too & that's not cheap to run, particularly when payments are concerned. I had a friend who recently closed a business & I could not believe how much their basic website was costing them to maintain.

    Best of luck with it all though.
