Selling Spices From Home
To start selling spices from home, do the following.
- Check with your city and county governments to see if a spice-bottling business is legal in your region. Look for compliant kitchens for rent by the day at nearby churches or restaurants.
- Make sure to prepare your kitchen for a safety inspection as you would be visited and checked by inspectors before running your business.
- Determine where and how you will sell your spice bottles. Will you need to open an online store or just a website to market your spices?
- Determine how you will interest your target audience in your product, especially if they are already purchasing spices from multiple sources.
- A DBA (Doing Business As) helps you to do business under a different name without having to join a company. To take advantage of wholesale rates on bottles and other supplies, apply for a resale certificate.
- Purchasing bottles at wholesale prices allow you to increase the profit margin on each bottle of your spices you sell. So, make sure you buy them in bulk.
- Of course, you would be needing to label your spice bottles. So, you need to think of a company name, a logo, and design a label to stick on bottles to represent your business. Don't just cut corners on a label design, simply seek professional help. A professional-looking label is more essential.
- Calculate all costs to start your company including expenses, utility costs, marketing costs, etc.
- After you've calculated the costs of starting a company and operating it, set a price for each bottle of spice. Calculate the cost of materials as well as the cost of delivery to you. Be sure to account for the labor costs. Is the final price reasonable? Your spices would be difficult to sell if the price is too high.
- Whether if you are the sole proprietor of a company, or in partnership, you can now create a business plan for selling your spices.
- Finally, start marketing your products using different channels (social media, YouTube ads, website, home store, etc.) to promote your products and make some money.
Then, they are available in various forms, helping people to buy them from anywhere (online or at stores) at any time.
You can start by simply making a website, a promotional social media account, or use third-party e-commerce stores e.g., amazon eBay, etc. It’s as easy as that.
