Hi All,

 

My name is Debbie and I am from Malaysia.

 

I am also new to this page so firstly I would like to apologize for starting this kind of thread here.

 

I would like to asked how can I get peoples attention on my cakes.

 

I can't afford a shop and I am doing Homemade Cakes and need to sell them out.

 

Is there any way via online I can sell my cake as well?

 

Please advised.

 

 

Thank You.

Do you have a web site or Facebook page with pictures of your cakes?

hi,

 

try some Social Media (it cost less, but it promotes your business to multiple target markets):

- facebook, twitter, (meetup.com - find a group, network make friends and promote your business, so there's still a touch of traditional promotion/marketing here - kind like a mix)

- blogging (blogger, wordpress - it is a step to present your business via the internet)

- try Adobe Forms Central  -- you can create advertisement forms, flyers, product promotion forms ( first 50 forms are free ) then any additional has a fee. i found it simple, streamlined and fun to use.

 

--- then theres the standard/traditional promotion/marketing strategy (still strongly holds its grounds even in the age of technology):

* provide contact cards/business cards after every sale (include it in the packaging of your product) or hand it to the customer upon purchase.

* word of mouth through friends, biz network, org. networks

* printing your business details/product details on the outer layer of your products packing (different from including or handing out business cards)

* and join an organizational group that is inline with your trade of business, you get to be exposed to a market very closely targeted to the line of your business - which is cakes/pastries or bake goods.

 

hope this helps you in some way.

 

 

thanks,
