In retail & in sales in general you will have awesome customers and then some not so awesome customers. You will sometimes encounter a customer that complains about product the size, color, smell, etc. One piece of advice I will give you guys is keep in mind negative or positive every customer is a ambassador for your product! At times it is very hard to put up with rude miserable people, but do you really want negative feedback and bad reviews out there? Didn't think so. You have to hold these type of customers hands and help them through the problem. Often times you can save your self a bad review and gain an awesome one from being patient and rectifying the persons problem or complaint.
Try saying something like " How can I make your experience a pleasurable one" or " Our customers are very important to us how can we fix the problem to ensure you are happy" This makes them feel important and heard. The worse thing to do is ignore or neglect customers when they are upset or unsatisfied. When you are starting out feedback is very crucial and will often make or break a company! One book I can recommend that touches on this subject as well as multiple others that are involved with small business is E Myth Mastery by Michael E. Gerber
Often in the bath and beauty world you will read or here 100% organic or completely natural. Have you ever stop to think or maybe read the ingredients to validate these statements? The truth is organic bath bombs or natural bath bombs do not exist, this is because the main 2 ingredients are Sodium Bicarbonate better known as baking soda & Citric Acid. These two components mixed is what causes effervescence.
When the bath fizzy touches the water it immediately starts to fizz and effervescence is created. This is where the popular bath bomb terms fizzy or fizzie comes from. I will leave you guys with this, you most definitely can put natural or organic ingredients in your bath bombs such as , shea butter, cocoa butter as well as various oils like jojoba, grape seed, argon etc but there will never be a 100% organic or natural bath fizzy. Don't get fooled by peoples marketing!
We have all heard the saying " you get what you pay for " and it is certainly true. Bath bombs have exploded with popularity in 2016/2017. In doing so the market for wholesale bath bomb suppliers have become saturated and very competitive. Marketers hired from these up and coming companies will say anything to get a sale as well as undercut other companies. What you as the consumer need to understand is that a majority of the time this significant price reduction comes at a COST! What is the cost or the "catch" you may ask yourself. Here are a 5 things you need to ask yourself when looking for a bath bomb supplier.
A majority of the time there will be no FREE shipping offered! And the cost of shipping will actually go UP not down the larger the order is. If the manufacturer or distributor is over seas there will be importing cost as well as added time for you to receive your products due to regulations and customs approval that is needed.
Sacrificing your ability to scale your small business due to a lack of employees or resources. A majority of the time these new companies are small home based companies and do not have dedicated staff to pack, deal with customer service or manufacture. Over seas manufactures typically in China that sacrifice quality for speed & cost. Not to mention time difference and language barriers.
3). SIZE DOES MATTER!
Make sure you take a look at the bath bomb size. You will see that 75% of bath bombs on the market are all 2.5 oz or (golf ball size) Can you really compare apples to apples? or should I say apples to grapes. All of our bath bombs are 4.5 oz (tennis ball size)
4). Private Labeling
This is very important to small businesses as well as for start ups. Ray Silverstein of Entrepreneur Magazine wrote an article on working on your company V.S working in your company. With that being said do you have to create labels, print them out, cut them then apply them to the bath bomb after you purchase them? Or does the company offer Private labeling? We assist with label design as well as offer private labeling for our customers FREE of charge. This enables our customers to wear one less hat and focus on growing their small business!
Would you go to a Dr that didn't have a degree? Didn't think so. One of the things that is key in the bath and beauty industry is consistency. Over the last decade our team has perfected our formula for bath bombs. A lot of people may think you mix baking soda with citric acid, add fragrance, color and wala you have a bath bomb. But there are multiple factors that people ignore that we have learned through trial and error. Most importantly checking and perfecting the ratio of liquid to powder to achieve consistency that is spot on.
With all that being said you get what you pay for and some times paying $1.49 for bath bombs beats paying .99 . You want residual business that naturally refers your company and boast of your products quality.

How can you make money from giving something away? Especially product that you pay for to sell to make money? Sounds crazy! Truth be told one of the best forms of advertising is samples or dispersing product for a potential customer or client to try! Everyone has been bombarded by the sample guy in the food court or deli section at costco or walmart. Have you ever tried a sample of something and liked it , and now you purchase that item? It works!
By giving an inch you in return can gain a foot! There is very good margin in all of our wholesale bath and body products by giving product away to people that want to try them at markets or events you are investing in your client base. Is everyone that you give a sample to going to make a purchase or become a lifetime client? Absolutely Not! But if you hand out 10 bath bombs to 10 different people and 2 people fall in love with them you gained 2 clients off less than $12.00 If each of those 2 clients buy as little as 2 bath bombs each at $5 retail price you have almost doubled your investment of $12 in samples.
In conclusion you can make $ from giving away product!
How well do bath bombs actually work? I recently read a very informative blog post about bath bombs and how effective they really are. A majority of bath fizzies are made of 2 things baking soda and citric acid. With thousands of different bath ball makers what separates the best from the worse! Lush has been making bath bombs for a long time and they're scientist state " the ratio of baking soda to citric acid is what controls the duration of "fizz" as well as makes the bath bomb move and twirl". Bath bomb making is a science, After years of trial and error we have perfected the specific ratio and different blends of bicarbonates and acids to make a Strong, Long Fizzing bath bomb!
In conclusion all bath bombs look pretty and there are some awesome designs of bath bombs you can see from other bath bomb retailers on Etsy. But what separates the best from the worse is experience and the proper ratio & blending of ingredients. We actually blend multiple different citric acids to achieve the best results!

Often times we get new customers that buy wholesale bath bombs from us and are frustrated because they do not receive sales rite away. 9 times out of 10 it is because of one simple mistake, can you guess what that mistake is? They buy a lot of bath bombs and post them on a pretty website thinking they will get sales right out the door. Wrong! We recommend all of our customers to advertise and sell in these 3 magical places before even investing time or money on a website.
1) Utilize social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram etc. These are all free to use and create accounts.

2) Local Flea markets. There are 2 great reasons why you want to attend local flea markets. One there is a lot of foot traffic which is key, The magic of bath bombs is they smell very good and are very colorful. All they have to do is walk by and they will be drawn to your stand. Two is very low start up cost booths cost is usually anywhere between $25-$50. Keep in mind these are people that come to shop. Give everyone your contact info for down the road so you can then point your residual business to your website.
3) Farmers Markets. Farmers markets are excellent and help you get of the ground quick. Here is an example of a local farmers market in our town Laporte Farmers Market. They are usually every weekend and have a low attendance fee. Usually around $25-60. A majority of attendees are already in the market for or are enthusiast of handmade products. This group of people respect the craft and artisans and don't mind paying a premium to enjoy them. Be sure to hand out your info such as number or email address to stay in contact with your residual clients. Doing so will make it just a quick email for them to convert to your online store.
So you see buying a bunch of bath bombs and then building a website where you sink a lot of time and money into is not the way to gain exposure quickly and get your brand of the ground. Getting in front of friends , family and potential clients who are in the market for handmade premium bath bombs is where the secret sauce comes into play! Once you are comfortable with the amount of clients and residual business you have obtained then it is time to head over to weebly or shopify and get an online store set up.
