Do you have a good culinary background? Have you gotten several compliments on your cooking and baking skills? Then you could consider starting a pastry business even from home. Even though it might be considered a small business with little profit, it is still an income source which could grow eventually into something big. Having a good residential location with enough space to practice this trade is an advantage for an aspiring business owner. You could also consider selling at strategic locations to attract more customers and increase profit. Here are tips in starting up a business like this from home.
MARKETING: No matter how good your pastries look or taste, if you can’t attract the right customers for your items, the business is most likely not to thrive. Your target customers should be schools, offices, industrial areas etc. Most areas where people work and spend their day are good places for business.

QUALITY: if there is anything that gets you good customers in a short period of time, it’s the ability to offer quality. You will be amazed how well your business will thrive and how soon you will be able to progress if you make quality products. A business that started with nothing can become something big in a short time if you offer a good quality to your customers.

ADVERTISE YOURSELF: no business is too small to advertise or tell people about. The use of social media alone is enough to get the word out there about what you do. You would be surprised how much people can be interested in patronising you and placing orders if your snacks are good.

PROFESSIONALISM: Working from the corners of your room doesn’t limit how far you can go and how much you can achieve. It is important to keep a good image for your business. Dress well, have business cards, be polite and sophisticated no matter how small your business looks. Hire neat and well composed people if need be.

You never can tell how a little something can turn out into something massive if executed passionately and appropriately. No place is too small to start.
