Hi All,

I left Swansea back in 2012 to explore the world. I recently set up a company with the intention of moving back to the homeland. I want to sell hotel toiletries to b&bs and hotels. I just set up my website: https://www.hotelessentials.co.uk/

What do you guys think? Reackon it's a go-er?

They look very expensive for local B&B's mate?

Good luck with it though, hope you're very successful.

I want a mate like Flashberryjacks, who wears a Barnsley jersey with "Swans are my second team" on the back.

Good luck .

I notice your items are the 1st listing on eBay when you search "hotel shampoo"

Why would the hotel / B&B not go direct to your supplier and cut the middle man out?

Not being awkward just throwing in a possible problem in your venture.

So you are in Reading?

it's £9 for 50 bottles not 1. Nice one for pointing it out, I definitely should make that clearer on the website

An idea isn't responsible for those who believe in it.

Best of luck to you with your business venture.

I realise it's early days and its patently obvious but some blurb on the product is required. USPs reason to buy them advocating stuff like hypoallergenic, not tested on animals, biodegradable blah blah.

Not an industry I have any experience with but, like any, it must be very competitive.

Good luck

Are you looking sell business to business, with the site, or is this for the consumer level? I mean wouldn't most businesses deal with these sort of products via sales representatives and contracts more than just popping onto amazon for a quick spend?

Yea we've been on eBay/Amazon for a while. We've just started to go direct through the website. That's the idea, we'd love to supply small local b&bs. My current plan is supply a few places near me to test it works. Then move somewhere between Cardiff & Swansea so I can hit up both markets.

My mate / business partner lives in reading. I'm in Gloucester at the moment. It's as close to the homeland as the Mrs would let me get after spending so long in London.

Aye, and what about some small soap bars? It does my head in when you stay at a hotel or B&B and all they've got toiletries wise is little tubes of gel. You need a good soap bar to shove up your arsecr*ck in the shower of a morning. I do, anyway.

Here's some friendly criticism to hopefully help you.

I have a b&b/small hotel but it's nowhere near Gloucester or Reading so I don't get a discount ? Sod that then, I'll look elsewhere.

You don't offer a discount, mention where you're based and if someone local to you asks for a discount then you can give one but you're pissing the rest of the UK off by what you've written.

Under blogs. The grammar is poor in both the headlines. In one blog it should say wings not wing. In the other, tips and tricks to get that 5 star, 5 star what ? Do you mean 5 star rating or 5th star ?
Personally, it doesn't then fill me with confidence.

ALWAYS proofread everything, then proofread it again. First impressions count.

Good luck with your venture.

Partridge was sacked by the BBC so he'd be used to it.He'd probably write

"Just sack Pat" on a flip chart.

Sorry for calling you a c**t the other day by the way. I'd had a few shandies but no excuse really. Bit ashamed of myself truth be told.
