    For the start , make them and try to sell them to near by supermarkets. Gift them to friends and relatives and pass the message of your new venture. Give ads in local newspaper. Place ads online too. All the very best

    You can promote by giving free samples.. possibly print a 2013 calendar on the back of your business card and distribute it with free samples in your neighborhood.

    Hi Radhika,
    My sis-in-law runs a chocolate making business from her home in India. She get a lot of orders from small businesses who want to send gifts to their important clients, especially during the festive seasons. So you could try a similar approach once you have capacity to deliver slightly larger orders (for two months before diwali she actually hires extra part-time help to cope with the orders.) It's hard work but very fulfilling and quite rewarding if you manage costs well. She has built her reputation on good quality (really tasty stuff!), excellent packaging (all done by hand) in different quantities for different budgets, and timely delivery. Now she has a dedicated website also. She prefers to keep it seasonal because she does other things during the rest of the year.
    Hope this helps!
