The Soy Candle Business Opportunity is selling itself and making profits for its business owners
If you love candles, and spend money on them constantly, maybe you should consider getting a soy candle business of your own. These candles tend to sell themselves. More than 80% of homes in the United States burn candles on a regular basis, and you probably know people who fit this category. This is a lucrative business that is easy to start.
Most of the soy candle business opportunity companies are Multi Level Marketing companies. This means that not only do you make money selling soy candles, but you also make money helping others learn to sell candles. This is truly a win-win situation for all involved. You can work this business as little or as much as you want.
The first thing you want to do is research some of the companies that offer independent ownership within their company. A soy candle business opportunity can cost as little as $40 and can go well over $500, depending on the company your decide to go with, and on the packages they offer to start your business.
Many of these companies offer up to 50% commission on each sale. However, some require you to purchase a minimum amount each month, while others let your order when you need them and have no buying requirements. Find the companies you are comfortable with and then look at other things in the company.
You will probably want to work with a company that will help your soy candle business grow with residual income as well. If you think that you canít talk someone into becoming a distributor, you will be surprised how often people will come to you and ask about how to get into the business. This will come to you easily, and will create an income that is handed to you just by helping the other person build a successful soy candle business.
You will also want to consider whether you want to hold inventory or order as needed. Seek out soy candle business opportunity companies that offer the option you are comfortable with. If you have lots of space, you may consider having inventory on hand, but if you life in a studio apartment that may not be an option.
Once you have decided on a company and found a sponsor, this person should help you get comfortable with the products and guide you through the first several sales of your candle business. Their helping you will benefit them as will your success. Therefore, it is best to find a sponsor that is close to your location.
Now you need to think of ways to sell your soy candles. Get a few extra for the purpose of showing people the variety of products you sell at home parties. This will help you sell your candles and any other products you may sell.
You may want to purchase a party game book, like the ones for baby showers. This will give you ways to show your soy candle products and make it fun for the attendees at the same time. Purchase a few extra candles, such as the scent of the month or special of the month and give these as prizes. This will excite your customers and produce sales.
You can also use the candles as fund-raisers. Knowing that so many people purchase candles for themselves and for gifts, this will ensure sales. If it is also for a good cause, your soy candle business builds credibility within your community.
The hardest part of this job is getting started. Ask family and friends to help you by having home parties. Many will help you to succeed if they know you are really serious about making this business opportunity work. They will be your first line of advertising.
Subscribe to newsletters and periodicals in the industry. Participate in seminars, conventions, conference calls and any other type of training and updates the parent company offers. This will keep you abreast of new products and new trends in the soy candle industry.
It is also important to remember to have fun. As long as you are having fun, your sales will soar, and you and your family will reap the rewards of your successful soy candle business.
