Are you a passionate and talented baker? Do you want to make a living doing the work you love? And do you want to do so without paying the huge cost of opening a large facility?

Then opening a home bakery may be a great move for you. Selling baked goods from home can be a rich and fulfilling experience that allows you to make a career doing what makes you happy. However, it’s still a business, and you will only succeed if you know how to do efficient home bakery advertising from home.

If you need some DIY advertising guidance, read on for five tips on how to create a home marketing plan for your bakery.

1. Have a Good Name for Your Home Bakery

Your marketing begins with your brand and your brand name. The name should be creative and unique. However, it should be clear in the name that your business is a bakery.

You don’t necessarily need to have “home bakery” in the title and make it super generic. However, don’t try to make the name so “catchy” that people don’t know what it is you sell. Your appeal should be more about the sweet treats you offer rather than how catchy your name is.

2. Have a Target Consumer in Mind

New bakeries or coffee shops that sell baked goods are popping up everywhere. To set yourself apart from the competition, you need to have a business that meets the needs of a target demographic that other bakeries don’t.

If you want to appeal to younger consumers, sell cake pops. If you want to appeal to health-conscious people, sell baked goods with clean superfood ingredients like Tamara Linkowski of Healthy Treats Market. This sort of target marketing is essential to your success.

3. Engage in Content Marketing

In this digital era where most people find the products they want via Google or YouTube, no business can thrive without effective content marketing.

This content can come in many different forms. Audio marketing (e.g. podcasts), video marketing (e.g. YouTube), and SEO blogs are highly useful in putting out content related to your business. Click here to read more about how to use each content medium.

4. Have a Website

Again, the internet is driving the economy right now. So it would be foolish to not have a website.

Your website should be professional looking and it should communicate your business values as well as what makes your baked goods special. It’s a good idea to hire professional website developers, graphic designers, and marketing writers to help you with this process.

5. Start Out With Sales Promotions

Your business is only getting off the ground, and people aren’t familiar with you yet. Having sales and promotions for purchases is a good way to build a consumer base.

Offer free samples with a purchase of a certain amount. Offer subscription plans. Perhaps offer free shipping at a certain amount.

What you can pull off depends on your budget, but having sales at the beginning is necessary to gaining loyal customers who will want more from you.
