How to promote your home bakery business
Social media is a great platform to promote your home baking business. Apart from Social media, you can also take part in exhibitions which will give you an idea about which products sell more and what is the audience most interested in.
How to research and source ingredients?
The best way to research your products is to visit cake shops in your area and taste the different types of cake. This will give you an idea about the ingredients which you can then use to make your own cakes and it will also give you an idea of how much it cost to start a home bakery.
How to market your product
One great way to market a home bakery business is to start with your friends and family and ask them to spread the word. When it comes to market a home-based business word of mouth is what works best.
Find your unique selling point
One unique selling point about a home bakery business is that its food is made at home, hot and fresh and not somewhere outside.
Challenges with home bakery business
Growth in a home bakery business is very challenging. Because selling cakes from home is easy but delivering them to people far away. Delivery agents will charge you a bomb and customers aren’t ready to pay delivery charges.
