I'm investigating the idea of selling as a hobbyist but think my soap is too boring to appeal to others. As much as I appreciate those who make intricate and fancy soaps, I rarely have the urge to do so myself. My marketing friend asked me what I want to soap to "say". Ugh - even my answer was boring. You know how artisan soaps are either marketed as all natural, or cures for skin troubles, or are really blinged out? My philosophy is that quality soap should be affordable for everyone and NOT a luxury. I can also be very indecisive when selecting a fo and color pattern to go with it. But that's a luxury of being a hobbyist - I can spend 2 days choosing! What would happen if every soap had the same design, but different fo and colors? Or simply were solid single colors? Too boring? How do you make a soap interesting without fancy claims or designs? What if I specialized in salt bars only?
