1. What is your organizations name?


2. What is the name of this service?

Unique and Personalized Gift Business/Personal Shopper

3. What does it do?

Provides customers with unique and customized gifts for all occasions for ages 0-100.

4. What is the benefit of using your products or service?

Whether you are very busy, just do not like shopping for special gifts, or have no idea what to give as a special thank you,
Amydoodles will save you that time and help you find something that is memorable and appreciated without having to go to
other stores. Amydoodles offers one stop shopping either through the web site or locally at the showroom.

i.e., what can I hope to accomplish if I use it?

Letting me help you find something that is unique and custom for them will make your gift recipient feel important and make
you look great!

5. Why are you better than the competition?

I have a passion for what I do, I take the time to work with individuals and that is important to them.

6. Why did you start this business or service?

The business happened on it's own..I wanted to find a way to work from home while doing something for me but wasn't
sure how do find that. In an effort to keep all my kids small toy pieces in one place, I would doodle on the various
containers... Friends loved them, had me paint other things for them and then it all began...from small, inexpensive children's
gifts now to include adult and corporate gifts.

7. How long has the service been in existence?

Just over 3 years on the web, 5 years locally.

9. How do you market the service? Word of mouth? Newsletter (subscribers)? Affiliates? Ads?

Most of my business is by word of mouth. I belong to an international networking organization and am a member of a local
chapter. I also now receive web business through word of mouth. I have an e-mailing list which visitors can subscribe to
from the home page as well as a physical mailing list. From time to time, I also am a vendor at local shows, boutiques etc,
however, the need for that is diminishing.

10. What does it cost?

No cost to visit the web site unless you purchase something.

11. How do I sign up?

Visit the web at and you'll never forget another gift-giving occasion again!
