Learning To Make Unique Soap
Start by learning to make high quality soap. Learn what
you like yourself by trying many different products. Buy
lots of soap as market research. You'll quickly
see what other soap makers are doing. How does the soap
work? Does it feel creamy or drying? Does it really last
well or just melt away? Is it well cured? Do you like
the scents? The colors? How about the packaging? Did you
get any marketing materials? Learn anything there?
Now make a lot of soap. Try it out. Give it away. Try
different methods for molding the soap. Try different
scents. Does it take much more scent to get a good smell
than the books say? Try to develop your own unique soap.
Make soap that's unlike your competition so your
customers come right back to you. Consider making soap
scented just with natural scents. Maybe you can use
organic ingredients. Or make milk soap. Use regional
themes. In some way make your soap designs unique to
Know how much your products cost to make. You already
know about how much it will sell for, since you've
already bought soap. How much do all the ingredients in
a bar of soap cost, and how much would you save if you
ordered in larger quantities? If you really want to make
money with your soap, you must know the cost of each
bar. Find out early in your planning.
Now, how can you sell soap?
There are dozens of ways.
One of the best is to sell at craft shows or other
events like fairs or farmers' markets. Get yourself
somewhere that many people are shopping and buying. That
way you can sell a lot of products quickly and don't
have to drive around all over the place making
Now here's the trick.
The real key to a good soap
business plan is selling to your customers. The
people who buy at a craft show, or wherever, will often
buy again if you sell a great product.
Keep a customer list and mail a little catalog to your
customers and they will send you money in the mail, or
they will order from a website. Make sure every customer
can contact you to reorder, and get as many customer
contact addresses as you can. That's the way to build a
real business. We show you how in the SoapBizKit.
