Think about this.
When you first started your cake business, what did you think it would be like?
making money from baking cakes all day long
I will be able to quit my 9-5 job;
I don’t have to be waking up early each morning, going through traffic and being in a job that I hate;
I will finally be able to spend more time with my children;
I can work from home;
I will be financially independent;
I don’t have to depend on my spouse or relations for money;
I can finally contribute financially to the household.
But once you made my decision, you soon realized that this cake business thing is a lot harder than you thought. It’s not a small thing at all.
You started dealing with such things like:
Where are these customers?
I am not making any money
Why do I people don’t like paying for my cakes?
How do I price my cakes?
- Ingredients are expensive so how and when should i increase my price?
How come Iyabo cake business is doing much better than me and i started before her?
Why am I not making any profit?
In fact you are just tired and fed up and feel like giving up and maybe going to find a job. At least i will be getting a salary each month.
But you know deep down that is not what you want really.
Let me tell you a true story:
When became a single mum, i know i had to make serious changes in my life. Even though I had a fairly good job, I realized that my humble salary was not enough to take care of me and my children needs.
I had always had a passion for baking, so I decided to start selling cakes. My friends for a long time used to tell me that I should go into business selling cakes but I lacked the confidence to do it. When my children demands increased, it dawned on me that I needed a side hustle to supplement my income. I thought it would be a breeze selling cakes to the public. How wrong I was. I really struggled to make any sales. Even my friends hardly patronized me.
I knew my cakes were good and of good quality, but still people were not buying. I felt like giving up and didn’t know how to market my cakes to make enough sales where I would be able to make serious money to enable me quit my 9-5 job and have more time to spend with my kids.
I knew I needed a change, so I spent many a sleepless nights learning how to market my cake business to the right target .I experimented on different strategies and applied it to my business and knew what gave me optimum results and what didn’t.
Almost a month later, I started getting results. My fellowship and orders started increasing steadily. I even had to enlist the help of some of my family members to help me with my orders. I get hits on my website- Three Sisters Cake & Pie Company from other countries. I was also getting a lot of inquiries from my subscribers to give them advice on running a cake business. In fact I was becoming quite an expert in my field. And the best part in all of this is that I now have a steady stream of income coming in each month.
