Your sales strategy is instrumental to your success. The global beauty industry is expected to increase from $432.7 billion in 2016 to $750 billion in 2024. Whilst the marketplace is booming, the competition is stiff.
Where and how you sell your product very much depends on the product, your preference in terms of customers, and your long-term vision for your business.
In days gone by there weren’t as many options – you had to sell through bricks-and-mortar – ecommerce didn’t exist – and when we had the opportunity to first start selling through ecommerce, it wasn’t as refined as it is today. It doesn’t mean that today is any easier.
Whilst Covid unsettled the marketplace, it has made brands strategically reconsider their sales strategy. Prior to Covid brands were considering whether to sell DTC (direct-to-consumer) or via Omni-Channel – now there is a far greater emphasis on developing a succinct digital strategy. We have seen an increase of 36% in the shift of online sales in the UK, the fastest growth in 13 years (IMRG).
