Create Your Brand(IMG)

A makeup brand needs to be created with finesse. If you look at some of the biggest brands in the world today like MAC and L’Oreal, these brands have solidified their place in the market. While it may not be necessary for you to create a brand from scratch with your own manufactured products, you would still need to create a brand if you are deciding to resell existing makeup products.

Here are some of the prerequisites necessary to fulfill before you can start creating your makeup brand.

Create A Brand Identity (IMG)

The first step you need to take is create an identity for your brand. This includes the brand name and any and all of the brand assets that need to be created. The aim of this is to create recall power amongst your customers.

The first thing you need to decide is the brand name. This should be something that is relatable to your product and customers can create a connection with the brand name. 

It is important to note that since we are talking about an online store, you need to ensure that the domain name is available for the brand name you are going to pick. This will allow you to have the same name throughout all your online assets.

The second step is creating brand imaging. This can be the color scheme and logos for the brand. These imagery and graphics will live on with the brand itself and help consumers identify your brand amongst the rest.

Finally, we come to the tone of voice. This is the way your brand will be speaking to your consumers.Whether you are going for an elegant and formal tone, or a teen-like fun tone, you need to decide this from the start. This tone will dictate how your audience perceives you as a brand.

Decide Your Product Line (IMG)

When we step into the makeup sector there is one of two options that you can choose from. You can either manufacture your own line from scratch with the help of a manufacturer, or visit a wholesaler and resell products.

Whatever you decide to do needs to be solidified before you move on with making your website. There are many suppliers that you can reach out to to get your products in-house before you start selling them.

Now with a cosmetics line, there are several different products that you can choose from. From lipstick, to mascara, and foundation. Everything falls under this category. Be sure to only sell products that you can handle in terms of transactions and sourcing and slowly scale your business to penetrate different product lines.

Choose A Target Audience

You need to identify the group of people you will be targeting. This will primarily be women but it is further divided into age groups or SECs. You will need to run a competitor analysis on brands that are similar to you and who they are targeting.

Create Your Online Store 

Now that you have finalized your branding efforts, the next step is to create an online store for your brand. Now, most people would assume that creating a website of any caliber would require you to have some knowledge of coding. Well, with platforms like Webx Ecommerce you need none of that.

Social media can be a great way to market your brand in front of the people that you want. Creating social media channels for your brand and communicating with your customers can be a great way to divert traffic to your website and get sales.

This can be taken a step further with paid ads and SEO which will improve your reach to your customers. Pay a lot of attention to your marketing practices. Your business is only as successful as your marketing strategies.
