We all know that knowledge is power. When running your POD business knowing your niche and your audience can make the crucial difference between making a sale or drowning in the sea of the competition. But, of course, doing good and thorough research takes time. So why not outsource it?

Knowledge is power

Not everyone has the time to get a business degree. The Heidorn Report is more than a way of outsourcing your research needs. It is also a way of increasing your knowledge about how to run your Print on Demand business.

Of course, only you can know what your business needs are. You have to take the responsibility for your short-term and long-term business strategy. Nobody can do it for you.
And yet -sometimes- it is helpful to get someone else’s perspective and expertise.

Subscribing to the Heidorn Report is like hiring a research analyst and a strategy consultant while simultaneously doing a course in “How to run a POD business”. Whether you are just starting out or already experienced in the POD market: It is likely that the Heidorn Report can make your life easier and help you grow your business.

What we particularly like about the guides is that they are comprehensive but also extremely well organised and to the point: While the reports are about 50 pages long this is mainly because they include a lot of graphs and the information is organised in a way that allows you to follow along easily.

You will rarely meet long chunks of text, there is no unnecessary blabla and the information is put together in a way that makes it easy to understand.

In short: The writing is good (although there are some small grammar mistakes) and the information is organised and designed in a way that makes it easy to grasp, understand and follow.

You will receive information in a way that allows you to understand and act on it straight away.

If you get these reports, you do not need to waste your time reading on and on until you get to the information you need. Instead, you will receive information in a way that allows you to understand and act on it straight away.

So, should you get the Heidorn report?

Whether you are just starting out in the world of Print on Demand or a veteran, you just can’t go wrong with the Heidorn Report.

The good news is that you don’t have to invest any money before being sure that this really is for you. So, our advice is this: Get the free guide and convince yourself.

Try it out and see whether this information helps your business. If it does, then consider getting the subscription.
