One thing is for sure, starting a company from scratch is quite the roller coaster ride. But if you continue to think big, trust your instincts and never give up on chasing your vision, eventually you’ll get it right.
At Lily&Strum, we are a passionate group of entrepreneurs with a simple goal – to make great gifting easy for you. And we know that being a “great” gifter takes organization, inspiration and even validation.
Our idea has always been a good one, and we’ve spent the last 16 months figuring out exactly what it takes by testing, thinking, listening, learning, improving, implementing, re-designing, growing, building, talking, sharing, laughing, and yes, even crying.
So what startup lessons have we learned?
- You can’t build a skyscraper without a foundation. If you don’t start with something simple, it is no good.
- You can have the most polished interface in the world, but if it is not intuitive, it’s no good
- You may have a big network, a lot of friends or even a big family, but if you can’t figure out how to extend your reach, it’s no good
- Your business model may work on paper, but if you don’t test, re-test and then adapt, it is no good
So we adapted and we changed. We are proud of our work and we are proud of what is ahead. Most importantly, we know we’ve got something good. Here is our promise to you.
We won’t ever let you forget important moments and we’ll always find you the most awesome and coolest gifts without any hassle.
Best of all, it’s now FREE. That’s right. No credit card needed, no annual subscription, just a simple sign in and you’ll have access to unlimited profiles, occasions and stellar recommendations all at your fingertips.
We are finally ready. Ready for YOU to give us a try. Now is your chance to make a difference in our start up and get the benefits of someone (a whole team!) looking out for you.
But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself. Give Lily&Strum a try. We bet you’ll wonder how you lived without us!
