San Jose, CA (PressExposure) August 15, 2009 -- /1888PressRelease/ Since forming in April of 2009, The Gift Basket Association has been pushing hard to bring resources to the industry. From an online directory to now, a full on magazine, GBA is making an impact and creating the buzz within the industry they had hope to ignite. Trends and Tips, the name of the official magazine of GBA, is just that - its trends that are happening now and in the future as well as tips to help gift basket companies and suppliers grow their business.
Trends & Tips is divided into sections including "be your business best", "impressions", "a better place", and an entire section for supplier and partner information. Quintana's approach is to make this a community magazine with many members throughout the gift basket industry contributing as well as industry experts and business related partners. Industry experts Tom & Pam Newell, Mary Ann Jacobs and Flora Morris Brown, Ph.d contributed as well as Quintana herself.
"The holistic approach we're taking is to help gift basket professionals improve their companies in a complete fashion. It's less about fancy designs and more about how to get new customers, manage your work/life balance and providing superior customer service. And, more important, we're doing it in a fun, easy to read manner."
Trends & Tips offers some great information and extras to make it a fun read including a word search, recipe, "good intentions" and more. You can order your copy at [http://www.giftbasketassociation.com/magazine.html]. Advertising information, single and annual subscriptions are available.
One final invite from Quintana, "We've decided to make this a quarterly publication so we invite all advertisers to get on board and be a part of this community!"
