    So I am trying to be able to stay home with my daughter and not go back to work after my maternity leave ends and have always dreamed of having my own company. I have been putting together the pieces to start my own home based business for about 6 months and it is finally up and running as of today!

    When i had my daughter 8 months ago I found it difficult to source good quality, cute cloth diapers for a decent price. There are many different brands out there ranging from $15-$30 per diaper which I thought was ridiculous to pay for something that is pooped and peed on, lol. I sourced a manufacturer and came to agreement with them to distribute their product accross Canada.

    I am selling super cute yet affordable cloth diapers at www.sunbabydiapers.ca , all colors and patterns are $6.75 a diaper. I would really appreciate it if you would check it out and pass my site along to anyone across Canada who you think may be interested in cloth diapering.

    I would also appreciate any comments on how you think I can best reach the edmonton and Canadian market as far as where to advertise and any promotions that you think would work for a small home based business. I wish I had the $ to give away a million diapers (like clearlycontacts) as i think that is phenominal marketing, but i just don't have that kind of start-up cash.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the feedback! There are a couple shots of an open diaper in the product info section

    http://www.sunbabydiapers.ca/index.p...formation_id=7

    Is this what you meant by the interior of the diaper?

    Congrats Brigitte! Thats very exciting, I wish you all the best.

    Something you might want to think of is down the road talking to groupon about getting a add on their site.
    Something like buy 3 diapers get two free or something along those lines. I know groupon takes a hefty percentage, but the biggest thing right now is getting your business out there so people can spread the word!

    Yes, pick up is an option when you are choosing your method of shipping during checkout

    Congratulations!
    You should check out a group called Mommy Connections. They are classes for new moms to get together and socialize and also to learn about new baby products. You might be able to contact a director and advertise in a class or even stop by and tell the class about your diapers. The website is mommyconnections.ca

    Congratulations on staring your new business - site looks nice. I didn't read everything but I think a very prominent link - first time moms - what you need to know?

    Then tips:

    like how many diapers to start out with
    what detergents people like to use
    myths and facts -- do cloth diapers leak more than disposable
    how many trees you`ll save if you use cloth diapers for a year vs disposable
    maybe the facts on what laundry costs and what disposables cost per month



    Marketing

    - mommy bloggers in the Edmonton area could be a real boost to you
    - list them on your facebook page, write to them and say you`ve started out and shared links to their blogs on your facebook page; drop in and comment on some of their posts
    - each mom who buys is a potential fan - recommender so make that super easy - include little cards with your diapers. If you can have a card like a coffee card that says buy12, get 1 free or something ... but do it in a cute way.

    Can you create a starter diaper cake package with a bow etc. - buy for your friend - baby shower etc. People often make diaper cakes with disposables.

    Good luck - hope it goes super well.
    Extra cash here - earn by searching/watching videos/doing offers on swagbucks - it's a legit site and pays reliably.

    Already do swagbucks?try Instagc or pm me for invite codes for Gifthulk.
