Why the Pre-Launch is Important
First impressions matter, especially for the beauty eCommerce industry. The timing is necessary for the savvy business-person looking to delve into e-commerce on the beauty product market. The demand for products, particularly those developed in Korea, has seen a steady increase in the past few years and shows no signs of stopping.
With the relative simplicity and ease of starting up in the world of eCommerce, it is no surprise that the industry gives rise to thousands of startups every year, many of which will fail within their first year. While the reasons for this may vary greatly, one of the leading causes for many startups to shut down is a lack of reachability or customer retention, due basically to an absence of good advertising, or a weak online presence.
If the beginning steps seem a little shaky, finding a suitable supplier can often be an excellent foundation for starting. A website like Asia Beauty Wholesale is a solid choice for up and comers to the industry. The company’s reliable market and deliveries of top-quality products in a wide variety of brands guarantee you will never be left wanting for products to sell.

When you’ve decided on what products to sell and where to sell them, the next step is to figure out how to sell it. You can start by creating a pre-launching campaign to get the consumer base ready for your products.
Here are three solid tips on how to develop a solid strategy on your beauty eCommerce Pre-Launch:
Build your Hype Early
The first step is to create a teaser even before the actual pre-launch, which means that you should plan for the pre-launch months ahead. This concept can be simplified in one word: Hype. Without it, people will not hear of your market, and if they do, they are likely to forget it. Make people anticipate your release and, if you’re a newcomer, make them curious about your products.
Before opening your market, you need to exert a significant amount of effort towards pre-sales. This strategy will create a dedicated client base that waits on every offer available on your website. You can achieve this through smart advertising on social media, teasers of your upcoming products, and regular customer updates on deals and promos you may be offering.
Know Who You’re Hyping
Customer research is paramount to a successful eCommerce venture. You should know who you’re selling to, and determine how to provide what is needed. This process is essential because you need to cater to your messages and campaigns according to the market demographics.
Once you have decided on your targeted clientele, you can then develop appropriate packaging, source brands that are in line with the expected quality of your customer, and the overall branding and design of your market itself.
Have an Identity and Stick to It
It is crucial to define your brand identity and introduce it to your customer base. You should know what your business is all about and adhere to the predetermined branding. Every product on your market must conform with what you set out to be, and who your target is. In other words, be consistent even before the launch so that the customers know exactly who they are buying from.
For example, a premium market selling the best brands may alienate or confuse customers upon releasing a volume of brands that are relatively unknown or untested. A market specializing in multiple volume orders may lose its custom by quickly ramping up prices and swapping old products for ones with a higher profit margin for the seller.
Self-awareness is critical when it comes to first impressions. You should research the market beforehand. This step could dictate if you will expand or shut down within your first year. Focused research and consistent advertising on relevant platforms is the most efficient way to make your mark in the beauty eCommerce industry.
