2012 Our second full year in Westport. We are lovin it!!
I spent part of this year working on the business side of Bell Soap. The big stuff that Bell Soap accomplished this year was.......
New Website!!! I hired a talented local web guy, Joe - Country Multimedia out of Brockville Ontario to recreate my website. This has allowed me to easily make changes whenever I want. I’m really happy with it.
New Products!!! I created a few new soaps in response to customer requests and just because I can :) Activated Charcoal - a soap for problem, acne prone skin. Pink Himalayan Salt Bars
I made these as a result of watching Soap Queen TV - love her. The pink salts are so beautiful and good for you too - you can even eat them - the salt not the soap. Calendula Soap - a huge hit with everyone especially those with dry skin. You can read more about these soaps in the product section of the Bell Soap website.
New Retailers!!! I was lucky enough to get our soap into Rainbow Foods in Ottawa, Our Green Shelf in Merrickville, Mariposa in Perth, New Beginnings in Westport and I’m not stopping there. Lots of wonderful stores all around the area that I’d love to see my soap in.
Great Sales!!! From mini soaps for a golf tournament, to Bed and Breakfasts supplying them for their guests, to gift bags for a graduating MBA class to soaps being shipped around the world for Christmas gifts. Along with increased website sales and nice success at the North Gower Farmers Market and the many craft and Christmas sales we attended this year.
I’m going into 2013 with great enthusiasm. My head is full of ideas, goals and dreams all with a huge smile on my face. Till next time, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
