Step by step
When you start a cookime get it messed up and take a lot of tension than it actually is. You need to focus on one specific task or work at a time and get it done until it’s finished, then move forward in order to don’t rush things. Like you are running a campaign about your product and on the other hand you are hiring the staff and also looking for place and prices, I know at a glance it seems messy and sounds a lot of work but you need to focus on one specific task at a time like first have a look at pricing and once you finished your homework move to next one like finding a good place then hiring staff and then the campaign. Each at a time once the earlier is finished. You can also set your sales goals you must achieve monthly and have an analysis on the data and work on the drawbacks.
Gather the necessary information about your product. You also need to know what your competitors are doing and what you should have to do accordingly. Take a look at the aspects of a product like cookies, Packaging, brand name and logo, production cost and shipping and transportation etc. The quality of your cookies must meet the food standard because the customer will come again due to the taste. An important thing to know is that the packaging is as important as the product quality itself because before actually buying the product first the customer must see your product and if cookies look fascinating, attractive and appetizing then there is a high chance that customer must buy and you make more sales, thus increasing money.
Your Targeted Audience
Customers actually make the company alive and keep running your business. First starting a business, you need to find out the problem and need a present in your specific or targeted audience and then you start working on it. In order to fulfill those, you need to establish a particular service and in our case the cookies business. You can talk with the customers to assist them better or you can conduct surveys to know the problems and the issues present in your business. You need to look at their concerns, and desire and understand those particular needs and resolve them by working on them. Always adapt your business according to current trends and occasions because the customers’ concern also makes changes according to the event. By making your customer well treated and elegantly makes them loyal to your brand, thus you make a loyal customer because they are the backbone of your business. Your relationship must be good with your customers, because it makes them buy more products of your brands. A loyal customer has some more benefits than just buying only from your brand which include publicity of your brand because a well-treated customer will refer your product to others, thus increasing your business and cookie sales.
Place and Pricing
Area matters a lot according to your business. Cookie’s business can run in rural areas as well as in urban areas. Then after choosing the place whether you want to work in an urban or rural area the next step is to either work on a rented place or own your own commercial land. For startups the rented option is preferable because once the business is running smoothly you can own the land easily. And the location of your business also matters like if you start in a bakery market the chances of your business success increase. But the competition also increases so you must evaluate your services to meet excellence. While on the other hand working in a remote location can be not as effective because you might not find more customers. You need to think like a customer, when buying cookies, the customer wants to buy from a bakery market because there he will have more variety and which makes competition, thus increasing quality and adorable price. Pricing is also very important for any business; you must not exceed the price listed by the government and you also need to follow the competition of the market. In the cookie business the price can fluctuate according to location, like in rural areas it can be lower and in urban areas the price can be high due to the location. And price must be adjusted according to your competitor price and need to be affordable but keeping the profit margin. The pricing method needs to be versatile like one can pay through credit card, debit card, cash and check because you don’t want any customer to go if he has credit card only and it is a necessity nowadays.

Few decades ago, the marketing was only done through limited channels like TV ads, Magazines or Newspapers.
