How to ditch the admin and grow your cake business fast!
A how to guide...
Being a baker sounds like an idyllic life. You spend all day every day designing, baking and decorating all kinds of cakes and bakes, whatever your style. You have floods of happy customers coming through the doors bang on time to collect their cake and they always pay in full plenty in advance. You earn an income doing what you love the best.
Except… it doesn’t always work like that. Yes, being a professional cake maker means you do get to make money creating cakes, but it also means a lot of business tasks you might not even have been sure you signed up for. You’re quoting, processing payments, chasing invoices, advertising and more – and it’s not all that fun.
If you want to make some of these business tasks much simpler, quicker – and even automatic so you hardly have to do a thing – you’ll love Mums Bake Cakes. Here’s why:
YOU CAN DITCH THE ADMIN
Instead of wasting valuable hours pricing for orders you don’t end up receiving or chasing payments for orders who are slow to pay up, take your cake orders the easy way.
When you’re a registered baker with Mums Bake Cakes, the order process couldn’t be simpler. Customers visit the website, search for a baker local to where they want the cake – whether it’s for them or as a gift for someone further afield but closer to you – and place an order for the cake that they want, giving you the delivery address. The payment is all processed online so you don’t end up with endless emails, quoting, exchanging and then chasing invoices. It’s all sorted for you. Mums Bake Cakes even absorb PayPal and credit card charges, so you don’t have to.
When you join Mums Bake Cakes, you create an online profile about your cake business, giving you visibility online so that more customers can find you. Your profile acts like your little baking spot on the MBC website, giving you the benefit of online exposure without the expense and tech requirements involved in starting, establishing and advertising your own website.
YOU CAN GROW YOUR CAKE BUSINESS
Whether you’re active on social media and have a website for your cake business or not, your online profile on the Mums Bake Cakes website acts as either another string to your bow, making your baking business prominent on another website platform, or, as I said before, puts you online without the hassle and costs of creating your own website. The trend for online shopping shows no signs of going anywhere but upwards, so by being a Mums Bake Cakes baker and being ready and available for people to buy your cakes online puts you one step ahead of many bakers. It allows you to make the most of online opportunities oh-so easily.
Being online, one of the beauties of Mums Bake Cakes is that it sends interested customers straight to you and that, while your delivery will always be local, your customers can be from all over the country. When you want to cheer someone up, why send flowers when you can send a cake? When you want to let someone know you’re thinking of them on a special occasion, send a cake. When you want to say congratulations, send a cake. It makes a delicious gift that brings smiles all round, and MBC are at the forefront of this trend. Tap into it early to make the most of the cakes as gifts industry by becoming a baker.
YOU CAN DO IT FAST
The whole point of making business tasks simpler and swifter is to give you more time to make and sell cakes, meaning more time to do what you enjoy and more money in your pocket as a result. With that in mind, joining Mums Bake Cakes is quick and simple. All you have to do is sign up and complete your baker profile. Once you’re set up, you’re ready to start taking orders, fast!
Once you are part of the MBC bakers network, you benefit from their marketing and advertising efforts that bring more people to their website, and so also bringing more potential customers to your cake business. By taking the time to join once, you benefit from their time and effort endlessly, potentially saving you time as you’re receiving more and more customers through Mums Bake Cakes and so having to spend less time searching for them and pitching your cake services yourself.
You became a baker because you want to earn an income selling cakes. You didn’t become a baker to be bogged down with admin, payments and tech troubles. Let Mums Bake Cakes help you with both, bringing you more cake sales by connecting you with customers and making many business processes automatic, efficient and totally easy.
