You like using natural soap and have been giving your soaps away to all your friends and family. You notice that natural soap is even popping up at the neighborhood grocery and drug store. And now you’re thinking of starting a home business marketing natural soap and want to know how to start. Read on to find your options.

1) Join a natural soap Direct Sales company

When most people think direct sales, they think of Mary Kay or Tupperware. Awesome companies, for sure, but you want to represent a product line with natural ingredients. Did you know there are lots of direct sales companies that make natural soap and similar products now? Just a few of the ones I’ve seen market items such as:

Natural baby soaps
Natural laundy supplies
Herbal and aromatherapy based soaps
[ad#ad-2] You might want to search around at the Direct Selling Association to find a company that makes natural soaps: www.DSA.org.

2) Make your own natural soaps to sell online.

More people than ever are interested in buying homemade soaps and other bath and body products with ingredients they can pronounce! A lot of people like the idea of supporting cottage industries in this way. If you have an idea for your own natural soaps, why not start marketing them online? Let the world be your customer!

Building an online presence has never been easier. For around $20 a month you can build a beautiful, professional website with no knowledge of html (the coding language of web designers). I recommend the Easy Site Builder. It has professional photos, templates, shopping cart and integrated payment processing system, as well as extra features like message boards, bulletin boards, even newsletter manager.

If you like making your own products you could also compile your favorite soap recipes into an ebook and sell it.

3) Promote someone else’s natural soaps for a commission.

This idea is called affiliate marketing. You basically promote another person’s product on your website and when people click through and purchase, you get paid! This business model is great because it’s so inexpensive to start. Affiliate programs are free to join and all you need is a website. You can also differentiate your offerings on one site by promoting several affiliate products.

To find affiliate programs, search around at networks like:

According to industry statistics, the interest in organic products is growing by 20% each year. You can capitalize on this interest and turn your passion for natural soaps and other skin care products into a home based business!
