    Default Market research help pls

    As some of you may know I have a spice business that I ran on the side. It has bene up and running just over 12mths and it doing ok. This yr is push yr and I am rebranding.

    Part of that is redoing my product descriptions - now I have better understanding of product, customer etc.

    I have almost finished but would love some feedback from the masses.


    As part of my rebranding I will including
    - basic directions on the back of each packet
    - directions to website for various recipes
    - ingredients (which was already on there)

    My issues are
    -I am a chef so my thought process is different from my customers
    -I have around 30 different spice blends and it confuses ppl - they don't know what to buy or how to use them and probably most importantly the differences between each product.

    I would like customer to understand
    - they pick cuisine they feel like eating ie. Indian and then select from that range (I have classic, asian, nth african/morrocan, indian)
    - x spice is the hottest, y is more mild
    - use a with chicken , b with fish

    Problem is most of the spices can be used with ANY protein and any dish - they are so versatile that ppl just get overwhelmed.

    HELP REQUESTED:
    1. read through my descriptions and give honest feedback
    2. look at my packaging on give honest feedback - I have a few options with this moving forward and not sure which way to go.
    So if there is anyone who is interested in helping me please PM me - this is a budget business set up so I can't afford to pay participants but hopefully some of you lovely hubbers will be happy to help me out. My next step is to get some products taste/recipe tested so will be sending out spices for ppl to try. Not ecatly like getting paid, but hopefully its something

    Thanks so much!!

    yeh of course. I don't think I have your normal email at work. Can you give it me pls.

    I will be finishing the descriptions later on today, so no rush. With the tasting/recipes I want one person to try all the spices from one range - so your first response you can pick from classic, asian, morroc or indian??

    Moroccan please (yum!)

    Do you have my business one? I check it a lot more regularly than the others, and I have instant notifications on it so it will stare at me until it gets done!

    businessname@gmail.com

    ETA: @ the auto-hyperlink.. I wonder if someone actually HAS that email address?
