    BI 336: How the Bouqs Disrupted an Industry and Raised $75M

    BI 336: How the Bouqs Disrupted an Industry and Raised $75M

    On the show with me today is John Tabis, founder and Chairman of TheBouqs.com; an online flower retailer that delivers flowers and plants fresh from eco-friendly, sustainable farms to doorsteps nationwide. Since their founding in 2013, the company has raised $75M and delivered millions of flowers around the world.

    In our conversation, John and I talked extensively about three main themes. The first one is how to craft - and iterate - a story that gets people excited about your brand. In John's case, it took approximately 6 months to do this, and the story was so compelling that their first year ad spend was under $5K; yet their revenue rapidly climbed to six figures per month. 

    The second theme we talked about was about how to create mutually beneficial partnerships, and in John's case, these partnerships have had a significant impact on the growth of the company.

    And finally, we talked about how his first attempt to raise money was a total flop, what he learned, and how he was eventually able to raise a total of $75M for the company. 

    If you are a D2C brand founder looking to start or scale your company, make sure you have a pen ready because when you listen to this interview, you are going to uncover plenty of actionable golden nuggets!

    Steven and I's discussion was fascinating for several reasons. First, his agency is just over 2 years old and he's already landed enough clients to keep 22 full-time employees busy. When I asked him how he's grown the agency so quickly, he gave me the 3 methods he's using and we go into these 3 methods in more detail in the interview. 

    Once we covered how he's grown the agency so fast, we then started to talk about the work he does for clients to help them grow their sales on Amazon and some of the things that he shared with me were tactics that I'd not heard before; despite their proving to be highly successful for his clients. Listen to the episode to find out all the details.
