Selling Home-baked Goodies
« on: July 28, 2016, 05:22:46 AM »
Hi guys!  :)

I noticed some mommies making money out of their own baked goodies by posting them on their social media accounts especially on Instagram and Facebook. Most of them are quiet successful at it and they have been able to gain some loyal customers.

Have you ever thought of selling home made goodies as well?

Yes, I have a cottage kitchen and have sold quite a bit of goodies. I initially started a facebook page. Though I was not sure how it would work, as we live far out in the country. So getting the product to customer is a dilemma. There was one thing that I did not like about Facebook and it prompted me to remove my page. Someone picked up on my information and blasted in a google search. My home address and phone number were exposed for all to see. I did not like that. It took quite some doing to get everything removed. So I am proceeding more with caution now and I plan to use the buy sell trade groups for our county as well as area farmers markets. Cottage kitchens have strict rules enforced by the state. You can't just sell anywhere.

I think if you have the skill and the passion, why not? I don't think I'm good enough at cooking and/or baking for anyone to want to sample my goodies LOL So I have never thought about it at all. Although having said that, there's a girl where I work who makes the most basic of sandwiches to sell to colleagues, and people do buy them. Even if I was that way inclined, the problem for me would be the fact that I don't have a car, and wouldn't want to lug around all that stuff. Trying to advertise via social media platforms wouldn't really be that effective because over here not everyone can effort the extortionate internet access fees.

I personally use instagram to sell fashion accessories all over the country. I am not making a lot of money yet, but its growing.

As for home baked stuff, the problem is the delivery as it becomes difficult to deliver the perishable things.

As for the platform of instagram it is simply brilliant since you would be able to tap into audience all across the world and target them as well, depending on the marketing technique which you are using.

This can be lucrative depending on your location, or where you sell online. However, anyone who sells homemade foods needs to be careful of both state and national laws and regulations. You can no longer just sell whatever you make--there may be laws about what you make, the ingredients you use, your equipment and/or your kitchen itself.

Please be careful to obey all these regulations, because you can get into big trouble if you don't.

I have bought home baked goods online myself from Etsy shops. They are all regulated to be in compliance with the law. The ones I bought were really nice.

But have fun! :)

Speaking of regulations and stuff, I remember an aunt of mine who also used to sell her home-baked goodies to her friends initially then word of mouth has promoted her products to restaurants which eventually became her loyal customers. I guess one factor that led to her success in her home-baked products was how she followed all the regulations in running her business. She made sure that she adhered to all the rules which made her customers even more confident in the products she was selling them.

I want to try selling several different kinds of homemade candies at Christmas and also Valentines. I have been practicing some and unfortunately have gained a little weight. So I have to figure out how to keep that from happening. But I have several good recipes that my family loves and I may try this. I think they could be marketed on Facebook.
