Card & Gift Network Founder
Charlotte Biggs is a writer, solopreneur and small business mentor.
In 2009 she started writing about greetings cards, stationery and gift product on Card & Gift Blog.
Then in 2014, that blog became this website, Card & Gift Network; providing digital marketing and eCommerce support for greetings and giftware businesses.
Both the blog and Card & Gift Network utilised Charlotte’s 6 years working in the greetings and giftware industry for an indie publisher, Peel Cards.
From part-time administration assistant to full-time product manager, Charlotte’s role at Peel developed, allowing her to build up lots of “insider knowledge” about all things cards and gifts.
That industry knowledge combined with all of the first-hand digital marketing & eCommerce know-how picked up running Card & Gift Network for 11 years makes Charlotte perfectly placed to help card & gift businesses with their “online stuff”.
What’s “online stuff” you ask?
Well, that changes from year to year, because the online world is always changing. But generally, Charlotte can help with digital marketing; That’s blogging (or content marketing), email marketing, online advertising, PR, SEO and social media. She can also help you out of a jam with eCommerce worries and anything greetings or giftware related.
Charlotte has certifications in Community Management and eCommerce Marketing. This means if you want to build a customer base or sell online she can help you out.
“I want to help card & gift businesses use the online world to grow.”
Charlotte’s work has been published in PG Buzz, Greetings Today, The Gift Shop Hub Blog, Inside Retail and Independent Retailer.
You may have also seen her speaking, teaching & mentoring at the UK’s leading trade show, Spring Fair; Where she has delivered seminars on blogging, social media and marketing plans, as well as providing 1-2-1 business mentoring.
In 2020, Charlotte took on her first judging role; As a judge for the prestigious Gift of the Year competition, organised by the UK’s Giftware Association.
Charlotte lives in Leicestershire, England. For more info or assistance get in touch.
