More Survival Tips for Cake Stores and Bakeries
Try out these super quick survival tips to take your bakery online and keep your business going throughout the crisis...
- Set up an email order system to sell your products - As your customers can no longer come and browse your store or place orders in person, setting up an email order system is a simple yet effective way for you to continue selling them your delicious products.
- Sign up to a mainstream delivery service - Signing up to an online delivery platform is a great way to gain exposure in your local area. Check which platforms are operating near you, sign up your store, and customers will be able to order delicious baked goods from you online.
- Improve your social media strategy - Use social media to spread the word about your business and get customers sharing your content online. Running giveaways and promotions is a great way to get more exposure in the long run and helps you regain a sense of community.
- Share your top baking hacks via livestream masterclasses - For those who can, this is a great way to keep customers entertained and engaged with your brand during lockdown. You can offer this content for free on Instagram or Facebook live, or sign up to Patreon, where customers can subscribe to your content for a monthly fee.
