I'm pleased to announce I've finished my website for Cocktail Service [now serving Ottawa, Ontario], built with Carrd. Here she is: https://cocktailservice.ca
I'm sharing this because I'm proud, but more importantly because I would appreciate honest feedback in any way.
My primary focus right now is getting my first customer - literally just one. The reason for this is because I'll have to go out and buy everything required and start building my inventory based on that first order. I expect to lose money on the first few orders, but eventually (& in a relatively short time frame) I'll have paid off the price of my equipment and enter the green zone.
I'm going to offer a steep discount to my first customer and go out of my way to make sure things go well for them and gather as much feedback as possible. Down the line, I'll invest in my tools by purchasing a SurveyMonkey subscription and advertising.
I still have obstacles ahead with this idea, including delivery, inventory, lawyers/liability, but I think it has some decent potential as a first business and I would love to hear any other considerations I may have missed in order to ensure Cocktail Service thrives. Cheers!
