You know the impact of social media in today’s marketplace, yet you may not have used it as much as you could to market your brand of cosmetics or skincare products. With the impact of our various social media conduits, marketing your brand is easier than ever. Here are a few ways you can use the power of social media to attract attention to your products.
Why Social Media?
One reason is clear: social media is far more interactive than paid advertising. With social media, your customer feels a part of a community and you can leverage that in many ways. Add to that the fact that social media offers access to a broad spectrum of consumers. You don’t have to pick and choose your demographics with social media because they are all there, readily available for your message.
Visuals Gone One Step Further
Skincare and makeup are products that lend themselves to the visual. This offers you a great amount of creativity with the way you market your products, from videos to still shots to creative infographics. The sky's the limit when it comes to how you can represent yourself visually.
Social media also allows you the more traditional approach of paid advertising. When you want to target specific demographics, social media helps you target your audience and gives you analytics to help you decide whether it is offering a valid ROI.
What is the best thing you can do to spread the word about your product? Word-of-mouth grows exponentially in the online world with testimonials. Sure, you can seek out a celebrity or influencer but average consumer testimonials lend an aspect of “real” and unsolicited.
How do you use your product? As they say in the publishing industry, don’t tell, show. And that’s exactly what you do with a tutorial. Creating a video that shows how your products are used is a great way to interact with your audience, especially if they can make comments or ask questions.
Make an Offer They Can’t Refuse
You are still asking your customers to part with their hard-earned money to buy your product. Make it easier for them. Offer them a special price or sponsor a giveaway. This can create loyalty while having fun with it.
Social media is social. When you are accessible to your customers, you create a sense of community around your products. Engaging directly with your customers makes them feel special instead of being marketed to. Answer comments and feedback directly and you will make lifetime customers. And if anything has gone wrong, you can deal with it quickly so you don’t run the risk of a damaged reputation.
Although it may take a while to get the hang of social media marketing, once your brand begins to grow it will be exhilarating. In today’s landscape there is little more relevant in the marketing world than social media.

How to create luxe packaging that’s super sustainable
Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor for customers and manufacturers when it comes to packaging. With demand rising, brands have to look for ways to make their packaging kinder to the environment. This used to mean making compromises, which many luxury brands didn’t want to make.
How to create packaging that reflects your important brand
Your brand is your bread and butter as a cosmetics or skincare manufacturer. And the product itself is only part of that brand. The face -- or packaging -- of your product is part of what gets the attention and attraction to your product before it is even removed. Standing out from the competition is often what makes or breaks even the best product.
The benefits of stock cosmetic packaging
For companies that need a specific brand presentation but don’t have extensive financial resources to invest in custom molds and tooling, stock products can be a perfect fit. Today, there is the ability to take stock packaging and make it speak the language of your brand without the custom price point.

The best cosmetic container options for your products

Natural vs. sanitary - How COVID-19 has changed the way we think about our products
Over the past few years, we have seen a growing trend in sustainability and environmentally clean products.

How does your packaging convey your brand online?
Since the inception of e-commerce in the early 1990s, not only has online shopping grown exponentially but, especially during the COVID-19 shutdown, it has been the only way that your customer could get your product with brick and mortar shopping virtually at a halt. And as we see retail morphing in real time and many traditional retailers going away, online presence is more important than ever.
