Zone of Comfort

Hi guys! 

I know I haven’t posted for a while, I apologise! But today I want to share with you my new project and the struggles. 

So, I set up a Facebook page called “T-Cakes” I sort of want to create my own business. Obviously cakes!! But for the time being I have set up a page for my non-profit-making cake business (hopefully for the time being)

At first I thought.. Yeah! Let’s go for it stepping out my comfort zone and putting myself out there as a cake maker. 

I had seen loads of people posting in those for sale pages about being let down by other people. To me, a birthday cake is special and always essential! So, i got my idea from that.

So, I set up my page and created myself a little logo for my profile picture and didn’t invite anyone to like it until it was perfectly set up. 

I published my page later on that night and I got some great hits! Likes after likes and comments not so much. I’ve been trying to attract some customers nearer my area with pictures of cakes I have made etc.

With my business being cake based, I’m finding it hard to attract the customers in. I’ve had good statistics of who has seen the posts and pictures but not many people have been enquiring. I mean I know I have just started off booking people in, I just thought people may have questions. For example; Do I make gluten free cakes?

Tonight, I have thought of an idea to attract people to definitely want to be more involved. I uploaded a post asking if anyone was interested in participating in a competition. This included winning 4 free Cupcakes.

I thought with the post including the word free, that most people would be like a swarm of flies on a cats dinner. Pardon the disgusting phrase haha!

Anyway, the post didn’t get so many people into it. The competition isn’t official I just wanted an idea of who would be interested. A few people commented but not as many as I’d hoped. 

This has all got me a little down at the moment as it’s completely knocked my confidence. 😔 I am usually a creative person, but I can’t think of much else to get there attention to start it off. 
Has anyone got any ideas that they wouldn’t mind sharing with me? All will be appreciated! 
Thank you Guys x

Hope you’ve had a wonderful day.
