I need your thoughts!
Rosemary mint is an all natural goat milk soap that I carry.
The soap contains rosemary and peppermint essential oils, along with very fine ground rosemary.
I love the soap, but it has not sold very well!
Last month I sold a number of bars to one person, and again this month to a different client.
Guess what? Rosemary mint goat milk soap is now out of stock. I will be making more.
I am also sold out of clean laundry fragranced soap. I made 2 batches last week to ensure I do not run out again.
I was discontinuing both products because they were not popular, they were not selling.
I said I would not discontinue a product without first announcing it. I will post the question/announcement here and on the newsletter before I discontinue a product. I do not care if soap sits for 6 months as long as enough people want to buy it. Goat milk soap, especially all natural soap, seems to get better with age. It continues to harden, and in most cases, such as a rosemary soap, it retains its fragrance.
I am bouncing my thoughts off on you, I need your feedback. If you were me (have fun with that prospect, ha), and you had a soap in stock for 6 months that did not sell, would you discontinue it, ask your customers, or simply make more of that type of soap once it sold out?
I thought I would get some fun answers from you!
