Okay, so you have your online soap shop running on all cylinders. Finances are managed, website and social media are updated, soap inventory is ready to be shipped. Is there anything you’re overlooking? What about the weather?
While it may sound silly, the cold winter months might affect your online soap business. Items might take longer to ship via airmail if snow is keeping the planes grounded. If your soap isn’t properly stored, certain soaps might freeze and get brittle. Lastly, if you are snowed in and the power is out, you won’t be able to get more supplies to make soap nor internet access to accept your orders. Keep all these things in mind and have plans in place in case the weather doesn’t cooperate.
