How to get started

Plan to provide something special for your customers

Let’s examine the best way to prepare, so you provide candles to consumers hungry to buy them. And, earn a decent living for yourself. Candles are great gift when you can’t find anything else the recipient would like. The first step would be to decide if you simply want to make some occasional income from selling candles or if you’d like to start a candle manufacturing and sales company. If you simply want to make some part time income, you can probably buy all the equipment you need for a few hundred dollars.

If on the other hand, you’d like to develop a candle manufacturing and sales operation your approach would need to be different. Many times it’s best to test the waters to see how well your candles sell to retailers. Some major retail chains charge for space to promote your products. In my opinion, it’s never a good idea to pay for space until you understand how well your candles will sell and the time lag before you receive payment. Especially when your business is new and profits may be sporadic.

Unlike bookends, candles tend to sell well year around. you may also experience a spike in sales during the holidays. It’s impractical to set up a showroom where you live.  It may be best to be prepared to sell your candles where you can do so without incurring unnecessary costs. Consider developing methods for selling candles wholesale as well as accepting consignment arrangements where possible. Retail sales are an option, but there are also candle shops springing up everywhere. Churches use a lot of candles and may make up a secondary outlet for your sales. These should be your primary target.

Niches can bring riches

Selling to individual consumers won’t be practical initially, unless you can sell them online.  Unfortunately, it will take a while to get a website to the point it can produce some income. Without going through the expense of opening a candle shop or other outlet where candles could be sold, consider contacting known users of candles. Websites take a while before they provide a return on your investment and should be viewed as a possibility for the future. With Word Press and Woo Commerce you can build your own website in a few hours. Then Make improvements to it over time. Developing a content marketing system will help you to get a following for your candles if you can develop unique shapes and scents.

If you hire a developer, it may take even longer to recoup your investment, avoid that route. Ads for free websites are typically bait and switch operations. The sites you can build free usually don’t rank well in search engines, no matter how much you spend and should be avoided. You may want to explore niches in addition to consumers that would make the most sense for this type of business

Planning for the Implementation of Your Practice.

Having developed a concept for building your company it’s time to document the first draft of your business plan. Starting any business without a plan is a gigantic mistake. Preparing your own plan must include how you’ll address presenting the right image to the customers you plan to attract, and situations you should avoid. Introducing your business to potential clients may be done with your website. If you’ve developed it for e-commerce, customers may place new orders, pay for consignments and learn more about your company.

An extremely important section of your plan must be your marketing plan. You must plan for how you will meet the demand for your candles at varying levels of demand from your customers. To do this well, you have to decide who you expect your customers to be and at what points you plan to address their needs. It’s always a good idea to practice alone initially in this type of business. As a business owner starting from scratch, you need to understand every aspect of your business. From manufacture, to sales, to accounting. If you will be making candles with molds, you need to see what your best sellers are and have molds made for them. When the demand for your candles reaches a point you can’t fulfill it, consider alternate methods for increasing your inventory.

Preparing to open for business

As you moved near your grand opening, you would check to be certain you have every registration and license required for your planned operation. Begin to develop a content marketing strategy for your website, and perform other actions to begin to get clients online. If you get a following by making regular post to your website, you’ll already have a following when you decide to incorporate consumer sales. You should however begin to make commercial sales as early as possible.

The most important issue you must address offline is how you’ll approach the customers you plan to sell to. A possible option may be cold calls. Another may be to simply drop into candle shops in person and ask to speak with the owner or manager. A good practice would be to have samples of your work to show them, and pictures of your best sellers.  This is the point you can discuss the purchase of your work wholesale or suggest consignment arrangements. Try not to take “NO” for an answer. These cold calls and store visits will become the official launch of your company. Direct them to your website when they want to replenish their inventory of your candles.
