April 22, 2024

Welcome to Reliance’s ‘Meet the Locals’ blog series, where we uncover the vibrant tapestry of our community’s entrepreneurial spirit. We’re thrilled to feature, Get It Hampered, a beacon of ingenuity and service excellence in our midst. Join us as we embark on a journey to explore the captivating narrative of Get It Hampered, a local business in Craigieburn that has captured hearts and transformed the landscape of convenience and care. 

 

From Childhood Creativity to Entrepreneurship: The Genesis of The Business

“I’ve been creative since I was a child. I used to make soft toys and wrap presents for various occasions. I used to be the person in the house family would come to for gift ideas. After settling in Australia, for the past two years, I thought, why not make this a little rewarding as well. My husband is a mortgage broker, so he often used to ask me about gifting to his clients, so it clicked! Why don’t I do something for myself too? Being a full-time mother, this will give me the flexibility to work around the kids’ schedules, while also giving me some extra income to support the family.” 

 

Strategic Decisions: Choosing a Virtual Base

In today’s fast-paced world, convenience is crucial. The Hamper business leverages online  platforms, and delivery services, to make it easy for customers to browse, purchase, and send hampers to their desired recipients, regardless of location. By working from home, it gives me flexibility, saves me time and I do not have to lease a shop or pay any rent for the location. Going online to reach wider audience is my next goal, at this stage I mostly rely on word of mouth, local community and business and my known family and friends. 

 

Community Connection: Strengthening Local Ties Through Hamper Business

By sourcing products from local artisans, farmers, and producers, a hamper business can support the local economy and promote small businesses within the community. This not only helps local producers gain exposure, but also ensures fresher, higher quality products for the hampers.  

Participating in local events such as markets, fairs, or festivals not only helps to promote the hamper business but also fosters a sense of community engagement. Additionally, sponsoring local events or sports teams can further enhance the business’s visibility and reputation within the community. 

 

Future Horizons: Expanding The Hamper Business and Innovating for Personalisation

One goal for the future could be to expand the product range to cater to a wider audience. This might include introducing new themed hampers, incorporating seasonal offerings, or diversifying into additional product categories such as luxury items, eco-friendly products, or specialty dietary options. 

To meet the growing demand for personalised gifts, the hamper business could focus on enhancing customisation options. This might involve offering more flexibility in selecting specific items for hampers, providing bespoke packaging, and branding solutions, or introducing interactive online tools for customers to create their own unique hampers. 

 

Guidance for Budding Entrepreneurs: Turning Passion into Profit

By leveraging your creativity, expertise in gift-giving, or any field of work, and the support of your family, you can turn your passion into a successful business that brings joy to your customers while providing you with the flexibility and fulfillment you desire as a full-time entrepreneur. Best of luck on your entrepreneurial journey!
