    Hi all and thanks for accepting me into the group.
    I run a home business called Miss Molly’s Preserves and Pickles. I don’t do markets but I’m wanting to branch out to businesses around town but just not sure which way to do it. I’m also a keen baker and would love to start selling but it all seems a bit daunting to me and I lack confidence, even though I know what I bake is really yummy!
    My home kitchen is registered with the local shire.
    Can anyone give me a few tips to help me on my journey?

    Welcome to the forums @missmolly!

    What kind of businesses are you trying to break into?
    What kind of things do you bake?

    Just trying to get an idea, so our members can chime in with ideas 🙂
    Great to have you here.

    Hi @dave-fs-concierge

    I’m trying to get in to businesses like cafes and local gift shops.
    My small home business has been just jams, pickles and chutneys but would really like to add biscuits, slices and cakes also.
    I mainly sell from home and it’s really just special orders that I do but I do have products in two places in town.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi MissMolly,

    The most obvious approach is to approach local complimentary businesses you wouldn’t be in direct competition with. Like sandwich or lunch shops and cafes.

    Ask for their feedback and analyse what they say.

    You have probably already done that with your 2 x outlets and you can use them in any presentation if you have been getting positive feedback from them.

    Cheers
    Paul
