If you learn how to sell soap you can quickly start a profitable small business. A soap business is easy to start and it costs almost nothing to get going. That's one reason why so many soap makers try selling. Most probably make little or nothing, but that doesn't have to be. Here's the way to think to make money with handmade soap and possibly turn a soap making hobby to cash in your spare time.

Why do people buy natural soap? That's the most common question you'll hear. What's different about your soap? Many soap makers have gone before you, and many potential customers know exactly why handmade soap is different. Can you clearly explain why your soap is better than grocery store soap? Ah, but here's the real deal. Why is your soap better than other similar soap? If not better, then at least different. You must have unique features and benefits. Does it smell better? Does it look better? Does it have a story? Make your soap unique and tell the story. This is easier to so than many soap makers think. It just requires a few ideas and some effort.

Tell your soap business story to whom? How can you find people that want your soap? How can you get the word out? There are dozens of ways. One of the best to start with is to get before as many people as you can in a short period of time. That's maybe at a local festival or craft show. Find an outlet with a lot of people looking to buy handmade goods. That's a way to start with potential for large sales in a hurry. That is a much more efficient way to move soap than just a bar or two here or there. There are numerous tricks to making this work. But it will work if you get started right.

Follow up is the real key to a soap making business. Get your product right and you get repeat sales. Your products should be top notch before you attempt to sell the first product. Why? First, because you want to provide good value to customers. It's the right thing to do. Secondly, you want repeat business. You can start a business where you're at home most of the time if you can get repeat business. Go to a few craft fairs and offer some basic marketing materials and people will reorder. All you need is a little brochure and a little catalog and a telephone. Orders come in and product goes out. It will work. It's a time tested method that almost no soap makers follow. But you can!

You can beyond question learn to build good-looking natural soap. But to gain profits with soap, you have got to learn how to market it. This is a business skill that can be learned. The beauty of a soap business is it's easy to start and can be done mostly at home. It's low in cost to get started, fairly easy to make it somewhat unique and maybe best of all the product gets used up and must be replaced!
