UB news

Our baby bump is growing!

No no, not my baby bump is growing, our baby bump, as in my baby Ubuntu Baba :) I say ‘our’ now, as I now have an awesome little team of people keeping this business going and making sure we put our best work out into the world. I think the most exciting thing for me in the process of creating this website, was adding the meet the team page! I love my tribe hard!

We’ve been in business for just over 2 years now and we’ve reached the point where we need to step it up a notch and get all business like and stuff. As of the 1st of March, we are registered for VAT. How fancy!

What does this mean for you?

I didn’t want to raise our pricing anymore as we already had our annual price increase on our carriers on the 1st of Feb, so we’ve actually made our products slightly cheaper and added in the VAT that way, so that you don’t have to feel any price rise. Coz I love my UB mama’s hard too!

What does this mean for us as a business?

It means we have to make and sell more carriers in order to turn the same amount of money to keep our little business going. So in light of this new challenge that lies ahead of us, I wanted to ask for a little help from you!

    Hi, I’m a mommy expecting her third baba in Port Elizabeth. I am a firm believer in baby wearing I had a sling with my first and a long stretchy fabric thingy with my second and loved it!!! I’m saving up to hopefully get me an Ubuntu before baby arrives in July :)

    Do you ever use agents to sell your products? I would be keen to try and get the carriers into the baby shops here in PE if that is something worthwhile for the business. I also understand that that may not be the way it works best in this day and age with internet shopping. I will be resigning from my half day job when baby is born so am trying to think of ways to still earn a little when I’m home with baby :)
