Should your business go on ABC’s Shark Tank? This is a difficult decision to make and you shouldn’t rush to judgment! Of course we’ve all heard about the sales or marketing bump you receive from being on TV, however are you prepared to give up equity and welcome new partners to your business? These are the types of issues that we’ve been researching as we make our decision. According to Shaan Patel, founder of Shark Tank winning company Prep Expert, “…of the 50,000 entrepreneurs who audition every year, approximately 100 will air on television.” Read the full interview here.
So why are we writing about appearing on Shark Tank when the chances are so slim and it could be nothing more than a pipe dream? At Conversational, we follow the show closely and applied via email hoping they’d take interest. Like most, we initially didn’t receive a reply. However, everything recently changed when we received the following voicemail from the show! Obviously this has us all excited as we start our adventure.
