How to Promote My Online Cookie Business?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have an online cookie business that is fairly new.  I need business.  I have an ETSY shop, and a blogspot address, but I need more exposure.  Any suggestions?  I don't have the dough to promote myself in a manner that takes a lot of it!

 

Thanks!

Tell all existing customers for any  person they reccommend that puchases cookies . They get a discount on their next order.

Good for you!  I might start by thinking "more locally".  A great way for exposure that I have used was writing small articles for local papers....I would give "5 tips for the perfect cookie", or maybe "baking tips for beginners", something like that.

 

Then when the local papers print your article (and they will, because most of these little rags are dying for content) you won't get paid, but under your article it will say:  "Jane Doe is the owner of "Cookies 'R Us", and internet based cookie company.  To view Janes website visit www.cookiesrus.com....."

 

And so on....It may seem silly, but it does work.  It also establishes you as a Local girl does good, which folks love.

 

I started my own personal chef/catering business in this awful economy, and I'm doing fine....And I used a method just like above to spark interest.

 

Hope this helped!

Drop off samples at offices and market your cookies as a great gift idea, Packaging and presentation is important.
