Read on for the story...
In 1999 I quit a good job and came home. I liked my job, but was basically forced to quit. I had a wife and young children, so I wasn't in any position to retire or anything like that.
I needed to make some money and fairly fast. You may be able to relate to that.
Now What Do You Do???
Anyway, my wife and I sort of looked at each other and started trying to come up with something to do. Now to be very clear, she was and is in this as much as I am. Ideally we both wanted for me to do something from home. That had been my desire for years.
Well one thing we both liked was homemade soap. Kathy, my wife, had made quite a bit of soap. This was back when there wasn't a lot of homemade soap around, at least not where we lived. So I thought maybe that would be something that would work.
I might add here that my background includes designing processes to make things. I had a lot of experience in design and manufacturing. Not soap, but things a lot more complicated than soap.
So I was familiar with setting up to produce products and trouble-shooting things that go wrong.
But Who Do You Listen To?
As I started reading about soap making I found right quick that the people that were writing about making soap were not very clear about what they did and why. I'm not really sure why that was.
It's still that way from what I can tell. It's hard to get straight answers about the best ways to make handmade soap and why.
So it took me longer to really get my soap production where I wanted it than I thought it would. That mostly was because of the lack of clear information.
Here's an example.
If you follow a lot of soap recipes you end up with soap that doesn't have much scent to it. You can often barely smell it, even right after it's made. It's very common for that to happen. Ever had that happen?
It's either that the recipe calls for fragrances that really won't work in cold process soap, and many won't, or it's the other more likely cause. They just didn't have you put enough scent oil in to make it smell. Isn't that goofy?
But I've seen it happen time and time again.
People follow a recipe and the soap doesn't smell.
I'm joking here... you know what the technical term is for soap like that, where you put in just the amount of an expensive oil or fragrance that the recipe calls for, but it still doesn't smell? It's called "unscented soap."
And you know how many people want unscented soap??? Some, but not many.
So you follow the recipe and you get unscented soap and you might as well have thrown away all that expensive scent oil.
This is ridiculous and doesn't have to be if you know how to scent soap to get the right smell...
But, back to what I found about soap info...
But What About The Mystery???
It seems that soap making was, and is, looked at as some kind of grand mystery with all these deep secrets. That really is not the case of course. There is some art to soap making but it isn't a great mystery.
So that's where we started.
But then once you get to where you can make really nice soap you may wonder what it would take to sell it.
Quite clearly at this point, there are a lot of people trying to sell soap. Some are selling a lot too.
But most folks surely have little success at getting anybody very interested in buying soap.
Well, here's why you might want to listen to what we have to offer.
We sold over thirty five thousand (35,000) bars of soap over our first four years just working part-time.
That was just working out of the house selling soap made in the kitchen sink. This was a little kitchen scale venture that made money almost from the very start. The plan we used could be used by just about anybody. It's simple and you will quickly understand it. I couldn't say it's all that easy though.
Can you imagine making 35,000 bars of soap in little 50 and 100 bar batches? That's a lot of work.
But it sure beat putting up with a lot of stuff I've put up with to make money. Can you relate?
See, with a home based business you can spend more time with your family. You can set your own hours. You can work as little or as much as you want. It's up to you.
Now surely the handmade soap business can be operated as a tiny low cost venture that can stay small and still be profitable. It doesn't have to stay small however.
There are some, what I would call, monster size businesses that just started about the same way you could start a business, just from your home. Two businesses like this that come to mind are Dr. Bronners's soap and Burt's Bee's.
So it's really up to you what you do with a soap as a business.
People are going to keep buying soap. It's just up to you whether you want to be the one they buy it from.
Along the way to where we are now, we learned a lot about not only making soap but selling it as well.
We decided to put down what we learned and let others have access to it. There's room for lots of soap makers.
And truly most people who try this as a business won't get anywhere. There are a lot of drop-outs for a lot of reasons. There's room for more people who make money at this. If you know the right moves to make, you can be somebody that does well.
Start A Soap Making Business
So, here are some of things we learned and can tell you about...
Make Terrific Handcrafted Soap!
Then there's a whole book of ideas for selling soap.
The Soapmaker's Marketing Guide
Here's The Deal
You get both these books plus examples of our catalog and brochure.
Some of the tips in these books might be worth thousands of dollars to you...
And few people know what it takes to really grow sales.
I know it's true as I watch what other soap makers fail to do. I see it every time I go to a craft fair. They are missing out just because they don't know.
That's what we have done and what we have to offer.
It's not for everybody.
The soap making part in the material covers cold process soap making. That's where the money is. It's not about hot soap processes. It's not about melt and pour soap. These are fine ways to make some nice products. It's just that they aren't really very good ways to make money and build a business.
I don't want you to limit yourself and waste your time. I want you to get off to a good start and make some money. I hope that's clear.
It's a simple plan, but it's not obvious how to do a lot of this. This is hard won knowledge. We weren't born knowing all this. We picked it up the hard way, from experience.
So here we are all these years after we started on this soap making and selling venture. We're still hard at work, at home, making things and selling things.
If you are interested in making a go of selling soap for profit, we offer our product called the SoapBizKit.
You get in this digital download two books: one is a soap making book with all our tricks. It's about 70 pages. The other book is the marketing part. Again, it's about 70 pages too and gives you the details about how to sell soap and other crafts.
