This makeup and beauty blog post discusses 10 steps that are essential for a successful and profitable beauty business. You’ll learn about all the basics such as sourcing, ingredients, packaging, sales channels and more!
Step 1: Create a Recipe
To start your business, you’ll need to create 10 recipes that are all different but work well together. You can use any ingredients and any combinations of them as long as they’re 10 in total!
Step 2: Research Your Pricing Strategy
Once you have 10 delicious recipes, it’s time to research how much each one should cost. A pricing strategy is essential for both sales on the shelves at retail outlets and online stores like Amazon or Etsy. Based on your recipe costs, calculate an average price point per ounce so customers know what it will cost before buying. As with most businesses there are no set rules here make sure that whatever prices you come up with make sense for your product line.”
Step 3: Research Your Sales Channels
The 10 recipes you created can be sold in a variety of ways. You’ll need to research which sales channels work best for your products and the customers that will buy them before deciding where or how they’ll sell.
Step 4: Launch!
As you’ve come this far, all that’s left is to launch your business with the 10 delicious recipes you spent so much time creating!”
Step 5: Promote Your Business Online
“Once your business is up and running with a website, you’ll want to promote your product online which includes getting started on Facebook Instagram LinkedIn Pinterest Twitter etc. Make sure you post updates about new products coming soon, recent sales, events happening nearby that people should attend and more.”
Step 6: Create Packaging For 10 Recipes (Folders)
Packaging can be difficult when there are 10 products. Creating folders for each recipe is a good way to hold them together without using an expensive box or envelope. These will also help customers figure out which one they want and make it easier on yourself when someone wants to purchase more than one at once.”
Step 7: Choose Website Design And Hosting Service To Sell Online
“The first step in selling your beauty product online requires choosing a website design and hosting service provider like WordPress, Squarespace, or Wix. These 10 recipes can be marketed and sold using a website.”
Step 8: Order 10 Custom Labels For Each Recipe
“The next step is to order 10 custom labels for each recipe that includes your name, the flavor of the product, what it does for skin (or hair) and how much it costs (if you have different price points).”
Step 9: Packaging and Labeling
Packaging is essential to sell your product, but it isn’t always easy. You’ll need to find the right packaging for your product, which can be expensive and time-consuming. Make sure you think about the labels too – how will people know what’s inside? How will they read them? These are all questions that should be answered before designing a label or choosing a jar or tube. The general rule of thumb is this: if you’re going to use jars with screw top lids, design on paper first because there won’t be an airtight seal around these types of containers.“
Step 10: Get Creative!
The final step is to get creative. You’re going to need 10 of these, so choose one as a logo for your business that includes text and an icon or illustration.”
Step 11: Develop Social Media Strategy
“To be successful on social media you’ll want to have a good 10-step strategy in place before getting started. This involves account setup, content creation, engagement techniques like hashtags and contests/giveaways/discounts etc., posting frequency and more!”
Step 12: Determine Your Marketing Budget
“Your marketing budget will depend greatly on the size of your beauty company. A small company might only spend $100 – $500 per month while larger companies can easily spend 10s of thousands. This is where it’s important to do your research and know your customer.”
Step 13: Offer Free Samples Of All Products
“Samples can be an excellent way of encouraging customers to purchase from you. You could offer them as prizes in contests/giveaways/discounts like 20% off if they buy one now, 10% off if they buy one next week etc., or you could just be straight up and offer them for free. This is a strategy that many beauty brands use, such as Bare Minerals.”
Step 14: Use Social Media To Connect With Customers
“A successful social media strategy will involve more than just posting 10 times a day or sending 10 emails every week, but also connecting with customers through comments, shares, likes, replies etc., as well as by providing valuable content that they’re interested in like inspirational quotes about entrepreneurship, 10 mistakes to avoid in 10 minutes, or 10 healthy recipes. There are 10 social media channels for the 10 steps! So get on it!”
