What Is Branding?

Branding is simply taking your company name and making it a household name. A name that can be trusted for everything we do or sell. Branding is putting your name up in lights so to speak. Take that name and get it out everywhere you can. Make it known that you are here to stay! And that you back your products 100%. People love to be treated great and they expect great service. So if you give them great service and stand behind your product you will have great success. Set goals and work hard to achieve them. You can do this. I did and I was very skeptical at first.

Getting Started Branding

When branding a new company it is best to pick a name that is easy to remember. Or something that catches your attention. It could even be funny, but then people might not take you serious. It is one of the most important decisions in branding so take your time and make sure it’s what you really want. Nothing sucks worse than promoting you company like crazy only to decide that you need to change the name of the company or the phone number. Been there done that a few times. I have had a couple different company names over the years until I found the right one for me. It is catchy and easy to remember. Plus it helps people to associate my name with my company. Look up my name and you’ll find my company. Or look up my company and you’ll find my name. You have got to stay on top of your game to keep your company successful. And that means getting your name out everywhere. It works or I wouldn’t even be writing about it. And I can show you how.

Make Your Brand Stand Out Or Above The Rest

Growing Your Business From Scratch

Growing your business from scratch is all about starting small and expanding each year. When I started my business it was just for fun. I wasn’t even planning on starting my own business it just happened. I started by putting in a small water garden with a few small water plants like waterlily, horsetail, arrowheads and a few other marginals. The gentleman I bought these plants from was a very nice guy. He mentioned to me that he wasn’t going to be doing it much longer and asked if I would be interested in buying the whole business from him.

At the time I had no interest in running my own business and I thought I could never do this. Then he explained to me how he started small and was doing other things also. Growing your business from scratch takes time. But I enjoyed putting the little water garden and was seriously thinking about starting a business doing this. And then I though what if I did start putting in the little ponds? And then supplying the customers with the plants to put in them. That could make me even more money!

And then a little voice inside me said. You can do this. So I had some fliers made up with pictures of the new pond I just put in. And what do you know I got my first pond job. $1900 dollars for 9 hours work. I put in some water plants and it looked great. Customer loved it and off I went. I like this I thought. I’m going to see if I can do it again. I did and my success continued. Could growing your business from scratch really be this easy. And it was. Don’t get me wrong it is all hard work. But the pay is good and the work is honest and legal. Growing your business from scratch is not really easy. But I do make my own hours.

Work Hard At Growing Your Business

Sometimes it feels like I work harder now than I ever did working for someone else and I do. The only difference is now there is a means to an end. You are not limited to what you make an hour. And trust me the possibilities are endless. With your own business you could literally have a $1000 day or a whole bunch of them. When you work for someone else you are limited to what they pay by the hour. When selling plants there’s no limit on what you can sell in just one day. Let me tell you sometimes it gets crazy. What you can make in sometimes just a few minutes. You will never even know until you take that first step with me. I can teach you how I do it. You must be serious because I don’t have time to waste. This is a hands on 2 week course designed to teach you how to make money gardening! And I don’t play around. This is a very serious business course. You will learn how to make a living doing this kind of work. I guarantee it.

Growing Your Business Means Adding New Products

So now not only was I selling the plants to go into the pond, I started selling the plants that go around the pond. And so I was growing my business. So now I started checking out landscapes wherever I went. I even started driving around just to look at peoples landscaping. Taking in all the great ideas and making them my own. One of the biggest impressions left on me was stone walls and other structures made with field or creek stone. Then I saw some really awesome waterfalls. At this point I was hooked. I wanted to add this to my business and so I did. Well my passion grew for all things landscape, hard-scape and even water-scapes.

I visited the zoo one day and what I saw there changed my life forever. It was bamboo. What! Bamboo! Growing and thriving right here in Cincinnati, Ohio. I couldn’t believe it. But it was true. The first thing I thought was I have got to add this to my business. I bought my first plant and little did I know this plant would literally put my business on the map. I now grow 49 different species of bamboo and I couldn’t be happier. Bamboo accounts for 75% of my business and it’s still growing. Growing your business can be a long and sometimes tough road. But the rewards of being able to work from home are tremendous.

Now come springtime I found another great way to make money gardening and keep growing your business. It is growing and selling organic grown vegetable starts. This is also a very big part of my business, because its easy and fast. It takes very little work to start vegetable seeds and once they are growing all you have to do is water them. About a month or two and sell them. They sell fast and they all sell. Make sure to pick the vegetables that people buy the most and sell them cheaper than anyone else. You are almost guaranteed to make excellent profits. If this interests you and you would like to learn how I do it. Contact me at (859)242-1602 Jeff.

Thank You

Business Ideas That Make You Money

Business ideas are just that ideas. But if you want to make them work. Then you are going to have to work for it. And sometimes it can be an enormous amount of work and sometimes not so much. I personally like the not so much ways better. But still no matter what you business ideas are they will still take some amount of work to implement them. Making money gardening is what I do best. And I couldn’t be happier with the way my new business is taking off. WOW! What an incredible year I’m having. I just took my business to the next level and starting shipping plants across the United States. And let me tell you it has just been crazy. Now you can get your plants shipped right to your door and never have to leave the house. Man I love that. Because when I’m in my greenhouse I am in the zone. The zone that keeps me and my family happy and healthy. Gardening for money is one of the best business ideas I have ever thought of. Because it’s easy for me. I don’t know why? I guess because I enjoy growing plants.You show me a garden and I’ll show you how to take it to the next level and make money gardening. I am definitely in my element when I’m in any garden. I think that some of the best business ideas are the ones that don’t require a lot of work to maintain them. Like growing plants once the hard work is done you just have to water them and pick the produce. The sun and rain does all the rest. My kinda business.

Good Business Ideas

A good business idea is one that will stand the test of time. And produce for you year after year without faltering. Like growing plants. Everyone will always need fresh healthy vegetables to eat. That’s where you come in. If you can grow vegetables you can make money. You don’t even have to grow the plants to maturity. You can grow them for a few weeks and sell them as starters. I do it every year and it is always a great success. This year is no exception. I sold out of every starter I grew and could still be selling them if I had more. Guess what? Next year I will have triple the amount I had this year. Hey! When something works do more of it. Over and over again until you get the desired effect. Growing and selling vegetable starts always works well for me. Now results may vary. But I truly believe you get out of it what you put into it. And I’m living proof. Because I have put in the time and now I’m really seeing the benefits of my hard work.

The Best Business Ideas

The best business ideas are the ones that take almost no work at all. Like growing water lilies. It’s almost no work at all. You put the plants in your pond and you don’t touch them again until they are ready to sell. No watering because they are growing in water. Old blossoms will sink to the bottom. And hardy water lilies come back every year. I mean it can’t get much easier than that. Maybe raising fish because the fish breed with no intervention. Just another of my great business ideas. Keep reading on down the page for more great business ideas.

Greenhouse Garden All The Right Stuff

Inside My Greenhouse Garden

My Greenhouse garden is my saving grace when it comes to gardening on this property. A greenhouse garden is a way for me to keep the animals from eating everything I grow. Tomatoes, green beans, corn, cucumbers, yellow squash, and zucchini. Inside my greenhouse garden I control most of what goes on in there. Climate, moisture, even the soils. I garden with only organic methods so it’s pretty easy for me. Plus I have a green thumb so I can grow just about anything. But I love the greenhouse garden because I can garden in the rain or snow. The weather doesn’t stop me and I truly love that. With just a little heat you can garden all year long. I can grow late into the winter and I love that. With my new hydroponic system running I can do a lot more. More time for other greenhouse garden activities.

Greenhouse Garden Trying New Methods

In the greenhouse garden there is room for error, because if it doesn’t work tear it out and try something else. There are no set rules in the greenhouse garden you can do anything you want well within the limits of the law. My methods and things I grow are all legal and within the law. You can make money gardening growing all different types of plants. My favorite is selling vegetable starts. They are quick and easy to grow. They grow well with my organic methods. I am growing some tomato plants hydroponically and they are doing very well. Organic hydroponics is my new method of choice. That is the use of compost tea as my mineral base and its working fantastically. I can’t wait to see them producing tomatoes. So don’t be afraid to try new things they might just work! And the rewards could be great. I once tried starting vegetables from seed just to sell a few and make my money back. Now, its a big part of my business and I wouldn’t run my business without it. That was just one thing I tried and it worked. I once tried selling water lilies and now I’ve been selling them for 15 years now. You can’t succeed if you never try. But if you put in the effort it will pay off. I am living proof of that. I started my Bamboo business with $75. And built it up to 47 different species of Bamboo. I built my greenhouse for $220. And it makes me lots of money. Greenhouse gardening is now a huge part of my business.

Hydroponics A New Beginning

Hydroponics is gardening without the use of soils. Hydroponics is a new beginning for me. because up til now I have only used basic methods to garden. Plus I garden organically. So I use compost tea for my nutrient base. I’m new at this so please be patient. But basically I built an ebb and flow system. I used a gutter that I purchased for about $6 at the local depot. I use a pond pump with an extra sock filter over it to keep out the big particles. Using compost tea there will always be some residuals floating around in there. So basically I just will flood the system about every 20 minutes or so and we start there. The beauty of using compost tea is that you can not over fertilize. But you can still over water so be careful at first to not over do it.

Hydroponics Ebb And Flow

In hydroponics there are many different methods. Ebb and flow is the one I choose because it seems to be the cheapest method. Basically you just flood(ebb) the system and let it drain(flow) every 15 or 20 minutes and that’s it. I love gardening cheap. If I can do it for free even better. After all I am doing this to save money and to make money gardening you gotta try to find the cheapest ways. Which will save you money which will then make you more money. Find what works and multiply it several times over and over. I mean you are already doing it once or twice why not five or ten more times. If this works I will have these all over my greenhouse. I haven’t gotten the soil less medium yet but as soon as I finish this post I’m going to get it. Hydroponics is all new to me but I will figure it out and learn many different and new ways to garden for money. Hydroponics is just another way to make money gardening.

Easy Hydroponics Gardening

Hydroponics is one of the easiest ways to garden. Because you just set it and forget it. Once you system is set up to run 24/7 it’s as easy as wrapping the plants around the string and that’s about it. You will have to refresh your nutrient base to keep the plants growing healthy but that’s easy just fill up the reservoir with fresh compost tea. And the rest of my plants get watered with the same compost tea. I use compost tea. It works great and saves me money. It’s pretty darn simple. Gardening made simple with the use of compost tea. I like it because you can’t really over fertilize with compost tea. Because the base of the compost tea is all organic there are no chemical burns from over fertilization. And that is how to make money gardening.

Perennial Gardening A Gardeners Dream

Perennials Rock

A perennial is a plant that comes back year after year. Perennial gardening is simply gardening with perennials. Only I put a little spin on it. With no extra work involved. Unless of course you want to spread that perennial all over your gardens or yard. A perennial to me means I do a little work and get to enjoy it for many years to come. A perennial is my kinda plant. It spreads and provides even more enjoyment. For me perennials make money gardening. Because I dig them divide them and sell them. Always keeping some for myself. And in my landscape perennials rule. And let me tell you perennials make a small garden design rock!

Perennial Gardening

Perennial Gardening

Plants like daffodils, tulips, water lilies, day lilies, iris, the list goes on and on. There are literally thousands of them. One thing I love about the perennial is the fact that I only have to plant it once and the work is done. Mother nature will do most of the work for me. In fact with water plants you don’t even have to water them. I sell many perennials at my nursery or garden center Gabelmans Gardens (859)242-1602 feel free to give us a call.

Perennial Gardening My True Passion

Look the real reason I love gardening so much is because it’s easy for me. I plant it. And it grows. I sell some and make money gardening. Now you have got to like that. It’s practically free. Now don’t get me wrong there is usually a small investment to get the plants to start with. But I never buy plants that I think will not sell. Unless it’s for hobby purposes. I always buy plants that I know I can make my money back with. Keeping in mind that it is illegal to propagate and sell some plants. It’s up to you to find out what plants can be sold and what can not. Do your research first before buying plants. Only buy plants that can be sold legally by you. If you buy plants to resell them make sure you buy plants that sell easily. And sell a lot of.

Perennial Gardening For Fun Or Profit?

Which ever you decide perennial gardening will provide you with years of enjoyment. I like it for many different reasons. But making money is my favorite reason of all. I mean you get to have the enjoyment of beautiful plants and you get to make money from them as well. You can’t go wrong. And then when you see your hobby make you money you will have a whole new perspective on gardening for money I guarantee it. Just start small and grow your business slowly. It’s fun and easy. You can do it. Make money gardening and you’ll be doing something you love. And getting paid for it. In two more maybe one year I will be totally reliant on my perennial gardening business. I grew it slow and steady always adding products along the way. Never made a big investment yet and it is totally working for me. Start off with the plants you already grow and add a few each year. It works or I wouldn’t even be writing this.

Perennial Gardening In My Greenhouse

If you have a greenhouse you can take it one step further. You can do you propagation in there. I grow all year long now with the help of a tiny heater and some innovation. I grow all my props in the greenhouse and produce many new plants like this for free. Now this is when you can really start making the money. When you can mass produce many different kinds of plants that sell easily. Stuff like hydrangea and other easy plants to propagate. Garden ideas are what make money. And the more you garden the more ways you come up with to make money gardening. My biggest ways are to add more products. The more products I offer the more I sell with very little added work. After all nature is doing most of the work for me. So get out there and start your perennial gardening today and make money gardening.
