with soap there must be a transaction. There
has to be a transfer of product for money or other
consideration. This can happen all kinds of ways.

between you, as the soap marketer, and the customer.

Lots of folks want to just jump past all that and just
sell wholesale, or sell soap on the Internet, with
little thought that this may not be the best way to go
when looking at how
to start a soap making business.
the ticket, just skip all that direct contact
like trying to sell soap at farmers markets or selling
soap at craft fairs and just make soap and get money. It
likely ain't going to happen. I mean you can't even skip
out on contacts with people even if you sell on the
Internet or sell wholesale.

with that transaction or you won't get to continue doing
it long-term. Then too, it takes time to figure out what
is the best selling natural soap. Some of these events
