to Start a Soap Making Business With Nearly Nothing
Learn how to start a handmade
soap business and you can make a serious part-time
income. Problem is though that lots of other people have
the same idea. Trick is most of those people aren't
thinking about marketing. They just want to make soap
and hope somebody buys it. Think about this...
Before you sell any soap, make it beautiful. Take the
time to learn how to make really beautiful soap. It
isn't hard to do, but it takes some practice. Get the
right information and practice. You'll need the basic
tools, but any hobby soap maker has the basics. Well,
maybe there's one exception.
That's molds. Get some professional molds
so you get a pro look to your soap. The right molds are
easy to use and cheap too. That's what you want... easy
Put time into developing unique soap. Why buy from you
instead of the other thousands of soap makers? You can
make your product special in many ways. You can offer
wild colors. You can use only essential oils for scents.
You can use organic ingredients.
Make milk soap. Whatever it takes, set your soap apart.
Then how can you sell it? There are many ways. One of
the easiest is to get in front of a lot of people who
buy soap. Do that and you'll sell soap. The fastest way
to do that is to get in a craft show or festival. That's
probably the fastest way to get started.
Here's the trick. You can build a real business if you
follow up with your customers. What's that mean? Simple.
Keep a customer list. Mail a little catalog
to some of your customers. If you have a good product,
some of them will order. Based on our experience, a huge
percentage may order, 10 to 20 percent. Think about
that. You get orders without even leaving home. That's a
worthy goal to shoot for.
Learn how to start a soap making business and you can
build a solid part-time income. The trick is learning
how to set your products apart from the sea of other
to sell soap. It can be done, but not by following what
most other people do.
Step out there though and you could get something going
on that would make a difference for you. One of the real
advantages of soap marketing as a home business is the
low cost to get in. But you really must find people who
want what you have to offer. Doing that is much more
difficult than just making soap.
