Stephen Punter, an inspired marketer.
Inspired by his daughter’s birth, Stephen created a children’s book company called Fantail Books, with his acquired skills, he’s been able to take his stories all around the world.
It all began one night when he was lying in bed and the idea of a bee reading a book came to his head. He pitched his idea to companies, but it was rejected, nothing was going to stop him from making a book for his daughter. So he decided to take matters into his own hands, and Barry the Bee was created. What started off as a sketch, the idea was turned into a book, then into a business: Fantail Books.
Entrepreneur and creative director, Steve has created a song, which he recorded in his garage with guitar, bass, and vocals. The drawings are now getting animated and going global. With sales to Australia, Japan, U.K. and the U.S.
Steve has shown us that it only takes the right skills and motivation to go where you want to be, for Steve, his motivation has been his daughter.
He chose getting into digital marketing because he believes that’s where the future is going to be. The course has given him the skills to market his product better and go global.
Extra thanks to Stephen, Tim, Varun, Lilly, Mohit and Lynn.
