I have been completely blown away the last few weeks. What I’ve been trying to do for the last year my wife did in just over a weeks time. She launched her own online business and got her first sales within a week. Pretty amazing. How did she do it? I had to try and figure this out!
1, First of all, she found something that she was dissatisfied with. In this case, the fact that there are no chemical free skin care products. This is something she needed to change. Not with the idea of having a product to sell eventually, but mostly for her own sake. There was a void that needed to be filled.
2, When she decided she wanted to do something about it she immediately started to search for information on how to create your own body creams and scrubs in a completely organic way. Google and YouTube are every start-up’s best friend when it comes to simply figuring stuff out, which usually takes up 95% of your time when starting a business from scratch.
3, After experimenting with different mixes of ingredients she found a formula that she loved. At this phase she is still doing this for herself with no intention of building a business out of it.
4, Inevitably, when you have an amazing product, it will speak for itself. She took some samples for her co-workers to try out and got the first couple of orders from her friends right there and then. They were offered to choose from a variety of scents ranging from Energizing Citrus Mint to Lavender Eucalyptus for their body scrub and body cream.
5,This experience opened up our eyes that maybe we should give this a shot and design a simple website with a web shop and make it easy for people to order online. We also explained the back story of how this product came about and why it is a better alternative to the skin care products you can find on the shelves in stores.
Since the start less than a month ago my wife has shipped Bembli Body products to two countries and four U.S. states. I couldn’t be more proud of her. She did it because she found an existing product that needed to be improved or changed and since nobody was doing it she did it herself, for herself. And as it turns out, other people were looking for the same product without even knowing it, until it was presented to them.
Lindsey is now experimenting and developing new completely organic and chemical free products, from shower gel to tooth paste. Our newest product is our Bembli Body Lip Balm, perfect for these arctic winters! For more information about our business make sure to check out Bembli Body.com.
