Andreea Ayers, Launch Grow Joy

A sponsored post from Andreea Ayers of LaunchGrowJoy.com

Do you have an idea for a product? Or do you already have a product line but are not sure how to get your products in stores or in magazines and how to get more traffic to your website? Andreea Ayers, a successful t-shirt entrepreneur turned marketing coach is the brains behind LaunchGrowJoy.com and Product Marketing Breakthrough, the only online course of its kind that covers all aspects of growing your product-based business – everything from getting more traffic and sales to your website to getting your products in stores and in the media.

Andreea started her eco-friendly inspirational t-shirt line in 2007 without knowing anything about apparel manufacturing, design, wholesale sales, screenprinting or selling t-shirts. But her passion for inspirational quotes AND eco-friendly living guided her as she grew her company to six figure sales by the time she sold it before her third baby was born in 2011. Andreea was able to get her t-shirts in over 300 stores and in more than 200 media outlets, including Shape, Self, Ladies’ Home Journal, Redbook and USA Today Magazine. She even had celebrities like Denise Richards and Sarah Jessica Parker as fans of her super cute tees!

Since selling her t-shirt business, Andreea has been working with thousands of entrepreneurs teaching them the exact marketing strategies she used to launch and grow a successful brand. And now she’d like to give you the opportunity to win a lifetime membership (a $999 value) to her Product Marketing Breakthrough course, a six-week live training program that begins on January 28, 2013.

Here’s what other entrepreneurs have said about Andreea’s Product Marketing Breakthrough course:

Oh My God, Andreea’s course (and I’m not even thru all of first hour yet!!!!) is so packed with info I need to know, provides direction, resources, answers my questions, somehow keeps it S O O O simple, doesn’t overwhelm me, has such a pleasant voice, and the huge one for me, doesn’t talk a mile a minute, just the right speed to be able to absorb info. One thing in particular she had said in her initial videos (1-4) ‘selling’ the program, that made an impression more than anything else, that you don’t have to buy any other courses, this covers it all. I believe that the statement’s going to be true because she’s already covered so much ground in such a short period of time.” – Robin Barr, CS Begone

“I love this course! What I have seen thus far is an abundance of information on the exact topics that will take my business to the next step. I knew I was going to redirect my business & change some things like my web site this year and this program has given me the exact information to do that. I’m really overwhelmed by how “on target” the subjects and information are. I had an idea of WHAT I wanted to do but had no idea of HOW to do it. Without the details of this program it would have probably taken me at least a couple of years to have success in many any of these areas that you cover. The information is clear, concise and easy to follow”. – Nancy Bayers Hoerdmann, The Beautiful Gift

“I‘d signed up for some other groups whose promises weren’t delivered…ended up feeling I/my business was just another stepping stone or rung of their ladder to success; my ‘success’ was immaterial. Now, I’m using my time more efficiently. I’ve learned how to make use of timing-saving resources. I’m able to construct effective pitches and know where to send the pitches. I know how to approach potential retail stores”. – Karen Whittier, Embrace Activism

    I need help with exposure. I need to get my products in front of magazines, blog readers, etc., but I’m just not sure the best way to go about it.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for hosting such a rad giveaway Jess!

    So inspiring. You put one foot in front of the other. And you did it patiently with a plan. Love that.

    Right now, I am working on putting my art on environmentally minded t-shirts and an e-book is in the works.

    Any wisdom would be much appreciated. Thank you for setting a great example.

We get comments about our professional photography, the quality of our products but can’t seem to break into consistent traffic and sales. HELP!!! Thanks again for this giveaway!!!!

    I’d love to know how to get my sales up!

  • Stephanie

    After becoming a statistic and losing almost all of my marketing budget to a scam artist, so embarrassing, I lost focus, drive and desire. Luckily, I have two amazingchildren who said, “put your big girl panties on and start over!” So, my biggest hurdle is trying to build a website on a shoestring budget. I also need major help on branding and focus on my target market. My weakness is wanting to provide product for ALL markets.. thank you!

    Andreea is such a wealth of information! I’ve learned so much from her blog and other resources. I just launched a line of baby apparel and have determined my target market, but I need help creating an organized marketing plan. Thank you for the opportunity!

  • http://www.TerraDeiFarm.com Alexandra @ Terra Dei Farm

    Oh! SO MUCH! We’re really working towards breaking into the wholesale world this year and I’m trying to learn all that I need to about that arena – but am basically starting from scratch. As a business owner I am really needing a roadmap to help me navigate the wholesale jungle. (Truth be told, I’ve been wanting to take the Product Marketing Breakthrough course for over a year now and have been saving up my pennies – but as a stay-at-home mom to four little ones, money is tight. As it is for everyone – I’m not trying to complain, just trying to express my long-held love and respect for all things Andreea!) :) Thank you.

    Oh My is right! I just watched one of Andreea’s videos and she ROCKS! I want to learn so much more! This giveway is crazy insane and I would use every last drop I received from Andreea. I am at a point in my business that I need to grow more. I need help finding how to grow more and reach more people.

    Thank you,

  • http://www.cakeforcharlie.com Sarah

    I need help primarily with wholesale information and how to get my product into stores. I could also use help in many of the other areas you mention, too, however! I think that being a part of a supportive community via the FB page will be vital. I work alone at home so connecting with others who are trying to do the same thing will be a huge energizer.

  • http://www.olivenaturally.com kara

    I would LOVE the opportunity to win this and it couldn’t have come at a better time for me! I have been in business about two years and I’m feeling very stuck with what I should focus on and which direction I should take things. I have a product line that I believe in and have a very small loyal following, but I’m not sure where to go from here.
    I had already signed up to watch all four of Andreea’s videos and I was very impressed!

    However, I’m operating on a shoestring budget right now and was completely bummed at the thought of NOT being able to sign up for Product Marketing Breakthrough… and THEN I find this giveaway on one of my FAVORITE blogs! It’s kismet! 😉

    I have only just started thinking of my hobby as an entity that has the potential to grow into a sustainable small business.
    It would be so amazing being guided by Andreea with all her marketing knowledge.
    Just watched the videos and they have definately left me wanting more.

  • http://envibrance.com/shop Julene

    Awesome, I found Andreea’s website last year and am so inspired by her insight and resources! I was especially drawn to her because I’m also growing an inspirational T-shirt line that encourages people to live out their dreams and gives back to charities. Her expertise would help me get unstuck especially in the area of wholesale, improving my website and marketing materials and converting giftings and press coverage into committed supporters and patrons of creative, uplifting art. I’ve seen modest sales but have not yet made a breakthrough to see my brand grow – this training is just what I need to see dreams become reality! Really enjoyed the videos and would love to be part of this year’s course!
