Most women absolutely love receiving gifts. At least, I do. So if I were recovering from breast augmentation at home vs. an aftercare facility, one of the last things I’d want to do is to actually go out and buy all of the necessities to ensure a speedy and proper healing period. Nope! I’d prepare beforehand and explore all of the cute gifts that JustGotEm.com offers. Milan Skrecek talks about the start of his successful venture:
Q: Tell me again about the beginnings of JustGotEm.com. You mentioned that the idea sprang from a girlfriend of yours who underwent breast augmentation…
A: Back in 2001, I was dating a girl who had decided that she wanted to have breast augmentation surgery. She was extremely excited and nervous that she was getting the surgery done, and I wanted to show her that I was going to be there for her during her recovery.
I started to research recovery gifts, thinking that there would be hundreds to choose from but quickly found out that there weren’t any that were a “congratulatory” gift, one that showed that I cared. I was frustrated that I couldn’t find a decent gift box that helped women recover from augmentation surgery. Being an extremely creative individual, I compiled a selection of “smaller” gifts to make up a large congratulatory gift box. It was more of a gift basket back then, full of most of the items you can get in the current versions of Justgotem’s gift boxes.
A few days before her surgery, I presented the gift box to her and she loved it! It had a list of tips for both pre- and post-surgery and items that would help her through her three-week recovery process. She was so impressed that I created the gift box, telling all of her friends and stating that I should sell this “because it actually works.” So I did and started offering the breast augmentation recovery gift boxes online in 2002, and business has been amazing ever since.
Q: When did you realize that your idea would be a success?
A: There were a couple of different moments I realized that the recovery gift boxes would be a success. The first one was having my girlfriend use my items to recover faster; actually watching the recovery gift box items in action. The second was about a month after launching the Web site. We didn’t have that much money to roll out a large scale marketing and advertising campaign but word got out that finally a well packaged, personal recovery gift box with quality, essential items was available. Sales went through the roof all by word of mouth only. The third was when I was receiving positive testimonials on how great the gift boxes were to use. It’s always nice to hear that you’ve helped someone through a tough time with a product you’ve created.
Q: With so many different gift boxes, greeting cards, and clothing items to choose from, how does a person know what to select for his or her loved one?
A: You first have to determine how much recovery aid you or your loved one will require. Depending on your recovery needs, Justgotem.com has different levels of recovery gift boxes that include items that target different aspects of your recovery process. You also have to determine your budget. Justgotem.com has seven different gift boxes all valued priced depending on your budgeted recovery needs.
After choosing the recovery box you’ll need or want to give, you can add a clever greeting card (six to choose from), or select a cute top from the American Apparel clothing we offer in our clothing section. All of your items are beautifully wrapped and shipped to your door in attractive, but discreet, packaging.
If anyone is unsure about which recovery gift box is the right choice for them, you can always contact us and we can help you determine the right choice depending on your needs.
Q: Tell me about the creative minds behind your greeting cards. They are very creative and witty!
A: Our team gets together once a month to explore new gift box ideas, additional augmentation recovery information to add to the Web site, and any other beneficial items to add to make our Web site a resource for anyone needing recovery information. In one of our meetings, I brought up the idea of making funny greeting cards and they were very well received. We came up with three that first day, which flew off the shelves once we posted them on the Web site. We’re now up to six different cards and will have an additional three by the holiday season.
Q: I think it’s great that a portion of your sales are being donated to Breast Cancer Research. How did that relationship develop?
A: My mother is a breast cancer survivor so it was just a natural fit for our Web site. Anything I can do to help find a cure for this disease, I will.
Q: What are your ultimate goals/plans for JustGotEm.com?
A: My ultimate plans for Justgotem.com are too take it to another level. Besides developing addition gift boxes and adding new recovery information, Justgotem.com will be recognized as a brand that is trusted and sought after for every breast augmentation procedure. Making the brand instantly recognizable is my ultimate goal.
Q: What do you love most about your job?
A: This might sound a little cliché, but I love the fact that I help women recover faster and with more comfort with a product that I created. Justgotem.com has helped thousands of women through their recovery process and we are blessed to still be in business after five years.
