  • 4 Crowdfunding Success Secrets

    There's been a lot of buzz lately surrounding the power of crowdfunding and it's ability to change the world of commerce, but it still remains a relative mystery to some would-be entrepreneurs.

    (Not sure what crowdfunding is exactly? That's ok, check this post out)

    With The Grommet hosting the first ever Boston Crowdfunding Weekend this Saturday, we decided it would be perfect timing to ask our partners to share their secrets for crowdfunding success. Tom Stewart, our longtime partner, has had not 1 but 2 successful campaigns funded on both Kickstarter and Indiegogo when launching  Sunskis sunglasses.

    Today, Tom is sharing his tips on how to start your campaign and reach your goals. Read on for our Q & A with Tom:

  • Introducing: Roary

    Hey everyone,

    I wanted to introduce you to our newest Grommet team member -- Roary. I'll let him take it from here...

    Roary The Daily Grommet Fish

    Been workin on this lovely coat for awhile now.

    I'm Roary and I've signed onto the E-commerce world as the Grommet Fish.

    While PetSmart was a pretty cool gig, it was time to move on to bigger, more innovative territory in my career. Enter Grommet: a place where I can immerse myself in creative new products and perfect my art of storytelling. I'm hoping they can really push me out into the deep end where I can get swimming.

    My first grommet is coming up this week - so stay tuned to see if I can fight my way through this awesome new space.

    To see what a sweet place I got and my thoughts on my first day, you can follow me on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/RoaryTheBeta

    And, if you know of a cool pet product we should know about -- give me a shout! I may be of the water variety, but I also like to find cool stuff for my land friends.


  • What’s Inbound Marketing and Why Do I Care?

    Inbound Marketing

    Dharmesh talking Inbound in Action!

    Many people don’t realize that Daily Grommet is so much more than an online shopping site where you can find unique, undiscovered gifts – we’re also a product launch platform that brings products to life, tells their unique stories and amplifies their message. We love to help businesses take their products to the next level.

    Every day, we produce new videos, photos, and story content to launch our Grommet partners. Thus we’ve seen first-hand the power that comes with leveraging a variety of digital marketing tactics.

    Last week, a few of our team members attended a class through Intelligent.ly called “Inbound Marketing for Startups” taught by Dharmesh Shah, Founder & CTO of HubSpot. Dharmesh gave actionable marketing tactics for entrepreneurs – and they can be applied to any product or business! “There are no excuses, that your business is ‘too boring’ or ‘doesn’t work’ for Inbound Marketing,” says Dharmesh.

    We found his presentation to be powerful yet easy to implement. Read more below and let us know if you’ve tried these, or can’t wait to get started.

  • A day at startup bootcamp

    I had the pleasure of spending my Columbus Day at a local startup event, getting my entrepreneurial "booty" in shape.  It was wonderful to step back and look at the whole startup scene while being inspired by smart, successful entrepreneurs.

    MIT Startlabs' Startup Bootcamp is designed for students to jump in and get sweaty with startups. The one day event featured speakers such as young CEO's to tech world big wigs – and they all proved just as dynamic as the last. Since Daily Grommet works to elevate entrepreneurs and products, I knew their advice would come in handy for our employees, the partners we service and anyone with entrepreneurial potential!
