So for starters it"s not going to cost you all that much in overhead. Of course it"s a given that you need to enjoy baking for this idea to work.
Now that we have the idea of a birthday cake business now we need to take it to the next level in order to actually see some money come in. The best way to get news out about your business is to advertise. If you live in a small town instead of a teeming metropolis you could easily print out some attractive fliers on your home computer and tack them up on notice boards in supermarkets and stores. You can even canvas neighborhoods and hand out fliers.
One of the BEST ways to attract business is by baking a batch of really delicious cakes and give out samples. You could set up a small stand at the mall or your local supermarket. Really, it"s not that hard to get permission from store owners so you can hand out pieces of delicious tasting cake to everyone you see there. Of course, you want to be sure to hand them a flier along with your sample. You"ll always draw a crowd, because nothing attracts people faster than freebies. Especially if it"s cake.
Your initial investment will be very small but it is well worth investing a little to get bigger returns. Understand that people have to know the quality of your cakes before they start ordering from you. This is why samples are so important.
Another way to advertise is over the internet. Most every one has a computer these days so you could set up a website and put up some attractive pictures of the cakes you have baked along with descriptions and pricing information. And of course, don"t forget to add your contact details.
Targeting college campuses work well too. Think about it. You"ll find plenty of kids away from home missing mom"s cooking.
Through your fliers and word of mouth you can get them interested in the idea of ordering their birthday cakes to be delivered by you as a surprise gift for a friend, or even for their own birthday party.
Now that you"ve got some ideas you need to understand that your business won"t pay you if you don"t put in the time and effort. Since the birthday cake business doesn"t have a lot of high overhead you can find many creative ways to advertise and attract people to your doorstep. Don"t be shy, drum up business where ever you go. Hand out business cards, find ways to go that extra mile with customer service, and of course make sure your cakes are delicious and mouth watering.
