Is it even profitable and will it cost you any money to start. You may be wondering if you need to create your own website to be successful and, if so, is it too difficult and will it take a long time. These are all very good questions, and if these are some roadblocks that may be stopping you from going forward, you have come to the right place.
In this post, I will answer each of these questions and point you into the right direction if making money selling beauty products online is something that you have been considering. Let’s first discuss whether selling beauty products online is even worth pursuing by answering the question is it profitable to do so?
Is Selling Beauty Products Online Profitable?
You may be wondering if you put in all the effort to pursue your desire to sell beauty products online, can you actually make money doing so. Is it actually profitable?
Well to answer that question, let’s take a look at some statistics. According to an article published in May 2020 in Statistica.com, the estimated value of the beauty and personal care market was expected to value at over 93 billion U.S. dollars by the end of 2020.
This statistic depicts the estimated value of the beauty and personal care market in 2020, by leading country. In that year, the U.S. beauty and personal care market was expected to value at over 93 billion U.S. dollars. Yes, that is a billion with a ‘B”. This is a lot of money just for one industry.
Skincare products, which is just one category of beauty products, made up 40 percent of the global cosmetic market. Plus, keep in mind, there are many categories within this product line to sell online. This is also what is known as an ‘evergreen’ niche, which means that people purchase these products online all year round, making the likelihood of making a consistent income very great.
So, in a nut shell, yes it is certainly profitable and worth pursuing.
Do You Really Need a Website?
There are a few ways to sell beauty products online. One is through social media sites such as FaceBook, Twitter, or Pinterest. Pinterest being the best social media site for the beauty niche. There are a few reasons for this, but the main one is that it works. Pinterest works very much like a search engine and draws a lot of traffic to one’s affiliate link for beauty products. Hold tight on that one, we will get into affiliate programs in the next section. This is where you actually make the money from.
Another way to sell beauty products online is through your own website. This allows you to draw traffic from the master of traffic, and that is through the Google Search Engine. This is the best traffic you can get. Mainly because it is extremely targeted based on people specifically searching for information related to what you are selling. This way, you are really not selling at all, you are simply directing people to what they are already looking for. Plus, with your own website, you can draw traffic from a variety of other traffic sources other than Google. Such as social media sites like Pinterest.
The third way to make money selling beauty products online is a combination of the two mentioned above. Your own website in addition to using Pinterest pins to draw quick traffic to your affiliate link. This is definitely the best, easiest and quickest way to earn online income.
Now, you may think it is difficult to create your own website and that it takes a long time to do so. But, in fact, it only takes less than a minute to create your own website and it is extremely simple to do so with the right platform. The platform I use is an affiliate marketing training platform known as Wealthy Affiliate.
