In the beauty industry, technology has made the lives of many easier by giving us numerous products that we could not have imagined before. On the other hand, we are also now spoiled for choice and can’t decide on what to choose from the many options given to us.
There’s always something new, a new shade of lipstick you don’t have yet, a new product that you’ve been eyeing, or a completely new brand that just launched. So how do we go through all of the products and brands displayed in front of us? Beauty bloggers.
Nowadays, small businesses are working with beauty bloggers to get their products out into the world to help improve sales and visibility. So how can beauty bloggers help you? In this article, we’ll tell you exactly how.
Beauty bloggers by definition are individuals who have extensive knowledge about hair, makeup, and fashion. They have to keep up to date with the latest trends and products, as well as maintain their social media accounts, by posting or engaging with their followers.
They create content for their blog, written or video, based on their opinions as well as on keywords that are high in traffic and search volume. A beauty blogger can sponsor content on their social media accounts as advertisements, or they can post about your product organically. Showcasing your products to their followers.
Through these blogs, these beauty bloggers share their thoughts on the beauty products, and whether or not they recommend it to their followers. They are the voices that your consumers trust with 84% of your consumers purchasing a product after they hear a beauty blogger review the product on their social media accounts.
Also, beauty bloggers collaborate with other influencers in the beauty community. Building relationships with other beauty bloggers is important. They often have collaborations together, sharing their views and opinions to their combined followers.
Singapore beauty bloggers have built up a following of thousands and even millions, making their reach impeccable. They talk to your target market on a daily basis, and they help your consumers decide on which product to buy. They also keep your target market up to date on your new products and when they would launch.
For small businesses, it may be challenging to reach out to your customers, or even build up a new customer list. Hence, it is important to work with a trusted beauty blogger. When a beauty blogger with a loyal following starts using your products and demonstrates how to use them, it is very likely that those followers may soon start using the product as well. Working with a beauty blogger whom your consumers’ trust will help them trust your brand.
Beauty bloggers also provide measurable results from being able to expand your market and reaching new audiences. As they collaborate with other beauty bloggers in the community, they are introduced to another group of audiences, hence, expanding their following and in turn reaching new consumers for your brand.
