I was just wondering how much soap everyone normally sells, on average.
I'm just starting out and I want to create a nice customer base but I don't know how. I have one lady that's ordered twice. She's my only repeat customer.
If anyone can share some tips/advice on how to get going or direct me to a website with some help i would really appreciate it.

hi jen,
i don't think people are going to tell you how much they sell, it is a bit like asking what someone's salary is :lol:
i think it is really good, you just started out, your site isn't even totally finished, and already have a costumer that ordered twice!
if you like, you could put a couple of samples in every order (or above a certain amount of money), people love that. i dont know if you have a round mold, you could use a pringles tube for it. make 4 different soaps, with recipes you already have, cut the bar in slices; and cut the slices in 4. In that way, you could package one bar with 4 different scents :D

I don't care if anyone knows how much I sell. The answer is: It depends. Right now I just sell soap for a few hours on Saturday morning at a market, and I will sell 20 bars on a bad day (bad weather, bad location). I sell 80 bars on a good day. Most mornings, I sell probably 60 bars. For the hassle, expenses, and taxes, it's probably not worth it, but I like doing it, and I plan to expand to make it all worthwhile. I see the food vendors, and they make money hand over fist, so you certainly want to look elsewhere if it's all about the money.

You can go to ebay or etsy & look at sellers sold items & get an idea. It's only going to tell you how much they sell on that particular site though. Some people sell through 1 site & some sell through many, including brick & mortar shops, craft malls, wholesale accounts, etc.
