3 Steps to Selling Products From Home

Have you considered selling products from home?  Nourish Natural Soaps have a range of yummy products that your customers, friends and family will love

Think about these questions;

Do you use environmentally friendly products in your household to benefit you and your loved ones?

Are you keen to earn extra income by selling natural, handcrafted products to your friends, family and social network?

If your answer is yes, then there is a great chance you would do very well in selling handmade products.  Lucky for you, selling products from the comfort of your home is not difficult and can be financially rewarding

As it turns out, we could all do with some extra cash from time to time.  What better way could there be than to earn it while you do something you really enjoy?  Selling a variety of handmade soaps, shampoos and body butters can be rewarding and enjoyable and you don’t have to have a big organization to do it.   The products in the Nourish Soaps range also have that magic ingredient most desired when selling something…. they are consumables! The advantage of this is that you can organize exactly the same group of friends 3 months later and re-sell all over again.

What are your costs?  In order to start selling products from home, you should have a small stock of goods to show your customers. In common with most other sales plans you can buy these items directly from me at the wholesale discounted rate first. Some of the items are only partially wrapped so your customers can feel and smell the items and enjoy the fragrance before they buy.

How does it work?  Most people find it fairly easy to sell to friends and family or organize a party but then get bogged down in the paperwork afterwards.  I want to make it easier for you than that.  I want you to be able to concentrate on selling and not admin!

The Ease of Selling Products From Home ~ 3 Steps to Take..

1. Register as a wholesaler via this website
2. Buy your stock from me at reduced prices. Buy in for a minimum start up amount of R 1200.00. If you buy for R 1700.00 or more, I will pay for postage.  First timers are welcome to start with R 600.00 if they first want to test the market…
3. Sell it at a venue of your choice.

How and where you sell is entirely up to you.

That is all there is to it. Easy! Selling products from home is a fun and rewarding sideline that is easy to set up and maintain.

Important! It is best to point out now that most things you sell will be handmade and there are two important things you and your customers need to know:

1. In the rare event that the products you want are not in stock,  then the lead time can be as much as 3 weeks.  This mainly applies to the soap as it has to set and cure before it can be sold.

2. The colours and scents may not be exactly the same as your sample due to age, handling and differing batches.

Always check stock online and advise your customers well in advance if there is to be any delay.

If you have reached this point and you are still interested in selling my handmade soap then simply register and you can get started right away.

Places are carefully monitored so that there are not too many agents in a particular geographical location. Agents can include shops, beauty salons, hairdressers or any appropriate retail outlet…
