Basically, I'm a Salesman. Or Marketer. Or Agent. Or Freelance. Not Normal. Different.
I don't like to fit myself in a box. I'm also not part of a herd.
I make a living marketing and selling the products you'll find on this website.
Some I sell and arrange the delivery from my supplier.
Some have to be collected at the factory.
All Wholesale - we do not do retail. Minimum quantities apply in all cases.
I work on a small commission, not a profit margin. This means I don't have huge overheads.
I don't have to invest in trucks or bakkies to deliver. Or drivers and assistants.
I also don't need to keep stock in a very expensive warehouse.
My suppliers do that for me. They use their vehicles (and drivers) to do deliveries for me.
I pay them for that service.
I charge my customers a delivery fee. Same as I pay. Anywhere in South Africa.
So, this is a win-win for us all. Especially my customers.
Convenient, simple, quick and easy. No fuss or hassle. The buck stops here.
80% of my marketing is done through the weekly ANSup Growers Club newsletter.
Every Tuesday morning at 8 am.
Most of my customers, suppliers, friends and family subscribe. Sometimes they refer folk to me.
That's the other 20%. They forward to a friend. I'm very grateful for that too.
My customers are kept up to speed and it is merely a reminder, should they need something.
I try to keep them short, helpful and to the point. Also positive - I don't believe in negativity.
Also, my friends and family always know what I'm up to. We don't need to use Social Media.
I was born an optimist and I hope to die one.
Not soon, but it will happen one day. Then I won't be able to do anything.
For me, every day above ground is a good day.
I'm very grateful to wake up every morning, rain or shine.
There's always someone who is worse off than me.
One just has to watch or read the news to know that. Or keep track of Social media.
Always a disaster or two to waste one's time on.
Can't do anything about most of it, so why do we bother?
If you're interested, you can subscribe to the ANSup Growers Club Here.
We can be Friends here, too. As I said, a weekly email is all you'll ever get from me.
If you don't enjoy the emails, or if weekly is too much for you, you can just unsubscribe.
And you'll never be bothered again. Not by me, anyway.
Until you re-subscribe of course. I am not able to do that for you.
Against my rules. And Mailchimp's.
The ANSup Growers Club is meant to help those who want to help themselves. To GROW.
Not only plants. Yourself too. Your own self-esteem. Your own choices.
We don't ever "HAVE TO" do anything. We should only do what we "WANT TO".
Nobody can MAKE you do anything if you don't WANT to. Not even your boss
We all have choices, even if we think we don't.
Even that is a choice. To choose or not to choose.
To be, or not to be, that is the question - William Shakespeare
To try or not to try, that is the choice.- Chris Wilkinson
It's all up to you - you have the choice - now go and make it.
