How are you today?
Here we are on a whole new episode on The food home business.
I run my coaching business from home so naturally, I have to eat. Sometimes I have the motivation to cook up something really nice and sometimes not. While cooking up something nice I decided to take a photo and guess what? This is how I got to this topic. I figured I know quite a bit about the food home business niche. If you’re much more passionate at cooking than myself and are looking to start a home business, I seriously ask you to consider the food home business.
Right, so here I am Mr Mark Ford on another beautiful day. If you are here for the first time welcome and those who have been visiting this site regularly a warm welcome to you too. Let’s begin…
Did you know that food blogging is one of the top ten niches, and some might even say that food blogging is one of the top 5 niches?
So many people can cook these days, and because of that, there is so much competition in this niche. The thing is, that it’s so easy to do on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, or practically any place where you can put a video up, picture, share your recipes, including starting a blog. Let’s look at what you can do.
This niche can be used to its best like so… Perhaps you love experimenting, enjoy the kitchen; cooking and making food using foreign recipes. Maybe your niche is lifestyle-related; those who have chosen to become vegan or those who are into gluten-free products. Perhaps you have your own range of secret recipes that have been passed over from generation to generation.
Maybe you’re into health and fitness; you had to lose weight or had health issues. You want to help others and have read every book out there over the years, so much, that you even know the benefits of various fruits, vegetables, herbs and more. Here you have education on your side to be able to even start making your own lose weight products, either that or blogging about it helps you to create awareness about new concepts, ideas, and god knows what else most people have never even seen in their lives or even thought existed.
Okay, now here is something you might not have thought of.
Your culture can help you create a demand for a speciality.
If you’re currently stuck in the hospitality industry, have a really good experience and want to start somewhere so that you can get out of shift work and working for someone else start your food home business part-time and then slowly transition into full-time.
Can you imagine what you can do with that; you’re a world-class bartender and have access to some crazy types of alcohol, worked around the world learning different cocktails, or you’re into kids’ lunches, party snacks, breakfast, cream teas etc. You have a really good chance by showing off your creativity using food.
You enjoy cooking, but even more, you have knowledge about the above subjects, and you want to teach people what you know about them. I am pretty sure you have these hidden gems in your pantry and cupboards. Alright, get them out. What are you waiting for? This is the big moment.
Learning about how to present your content and tracking it, will tell you more about what’s popular or not. You can learn this and a lot more through this website and the links I will leave below.
As a food blogger, you can even offer cooking courses on your website.
Take a look at these top three food blogger’s sites to get an idea about ways you can make your blog unique.
Looking at these made me think about desserts and biscuits. There you go, one more to help you decide if you like cooking or baking more.
What will have a massive impact on your home food business is you posting as many pictures as possible and doing real-time videos.
If you love food, love cooking and eating then I hope this article has helped you. Do not quit by reading this article, because you’re afraid of the competition.
One last tip,
“See I had no idea that I was not eating the authentic Indian dishes that are served in India or in a Gujarati home for that matter of fact. Why aren’t there more Gujarati specialities on the menu? I can ask this now after a contact showed me what Gujarati cuisine consists of. I wondered why all Indian restaurants are so standardised. This made me wonder about my ignorance about food and cultures. The way I was eating Indian food, and the way Indian people ate was different. After looking at Gujarati cuisine, I wonder about what I am being served in some Indian restaurants, and from what I gathered, Gujarati biriyani recipes don’t contain mushrooms at all.”
Through the example above, if it weren’t for a person showing people on Instagram what real Gujarati cuisine consists of the #world and #UnitedKingdom would have never really known that. I wouldn’t have found out that every region in India has its own type of cuisine.
You can use food blogging to teach people about your culture, it’s history and the cuisine, but most of all it will make people less ignorant with this perception which they had and believed.
If you are already in this niche or planning to start the food home business drop me a comment and let us know how you’re getting on. What’s working and what isn’t.
