followed my appearance on Dragons’ Den in August of 2016. Sales went through the roof, and my offer of investment resulted in working with someone who I believed would ‘fill in all the gaps’ in my business skillset to date. It was really refreshing to be bouncing ideas around with a guy who I respected enormously, and also quickly became a valued friend.
"Investment" fails to deliver
After 6 months of working together, it was clear that the explosive growth I had hoped for wasn’t happening, and I took the difficult decision to ask AJ whether we could terminate our business relationship. Sales were moderate, but not growing as I had been led to believe they would.
Customers say "Keep Going!"
Through all the turbulent times, the one crowning jewel in the crown of this business venture has been feedback from my customers. One doesn’t have to look far – whether on Facebook, Youtube, or reviews left on my product pages, to be convinced that the product itself is a good one.
50,000 happy users
As of mid June 2018 I have sold over 50,000 Plinths, with very very few returns or problems. I have been totally bowled over by the kind and supportive messages I have had, and it is expecially heartening when I hear from elderly or infirm people who love their iPads but had been suffering with neck or wrist main until they started using a Plinth.
