In the Beauty & Cosmetic Industry? Here’s How Step Out Buffalo Can Promote Your Business

Having a solid digital marketing strategy is, at this point, non-negotiable for any type of business in 2021. But if your business operates within the beauty, cosmetic, or personal care space, it’s especially important. 

Interest in beauty/cosmetic products and services has grown exponentially in the US in the past few years— and it’s showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. But don’t just take it from us. Here are a few stats to make the case: 

  • The beauty industry is estimated to be worth over $500 billion in 2021, with an annual compounded growth rate of 4.75% worldwide. 
  • It’s also predicted to exceed $716 billion by 2025 and $784 billion by 2027.
  • The average woman spends an estimate of $313 per month on her appearance. (Which amounts to $3756 per year or $225,360 over the course of a lifetime!)
  • Teenagers alone spend an estimated $44 billion a year on beauty products.

That’s a lot of potential business! But aside from just the numbers, if your business involves making others look and feel their absolute best, your marketing strategy should absolutely reflect and promote that. The most successful beauty/cosmetic brands we’ve seen in action tend to find ways to genuinely connect with their customers, meet and exceed their needs, and grow organically from there. 

Bottom line: If your beauty or cosmetic brand’s marketing strategy isn’t in place yet, now is the time to get on it. But as a local Buffalo business, what’s the best way to go about marketing yourself, and how can you ensure that your marketing efforts reach the right people— not just a lot of people?

That’s where we come in.
