Pretty sure last year I said that 2017 was gonna be the year I focused more on my business, but that didn’t go as well as I had hoped. However, this year that is definitely going to happen! No more excuses, I just need to focus and get my business growing!
I get a decent amount of business currently, however it is just through friends and family. I’ve had a few customers that found me through Yelp, which is great! And I am hoping that they will be return customers as well. But I want to find a way to get my name out there more so that this can really start being more of a full time thing.
I was on Instagram last week and saw an ad for a new subscription box called The Innocent Baker. I looked into it and was intrigued! They were new and based in Canada. There premise is that in each box they send you is the non-perishable ingredients to create a dessert. I thought this was great! For anyone who enjoys baking or trying new things, this could be really fun. Subscription boxes are a huge trend right now, but most of them contain things like beauty products or clothing. For someone like me, this is more my kind of box.
So I decided to take a chance and message the company and see if they would be interested in a collaboration. They send me a box, and in return I will make the product and share the final product and my experience on all my social media platforms. Considering they are new I thought this would be great for both of us. Luckily they said yes! I am so excited to be doing this. Based on their sneak peeks for the February box, it looks like it will be something really interesting and unique and I can’t wait to receive it so I can start!
So come February, keep an eye out on all my social media platforms for my experience with the box and what the dessert is! Make sure you check out The Innocent Baker website for more information and their Instagram account for some sneak peeks!
