7 Essential Marketing Strategies for Estheticians and Skincare Brands


One of the things most estheticians worry about a lot when they leave beauty school is marketing, and this isn’t far-fetched. It’s because marketing is not taught in beauty schools for obvious reasons. However, estheticians and skincare companies can’t do without marketing, and thanks to our never-ending quest to keep improving ourselves, we always find a way to learn as much as we can or seek guidance to solve our marketing needs. That’s why we have this blog post. We will cover some of the important things we need to do to be able to have a basic and balanced understanding of what professionals and brands need to do to grow their business in this competitive niche.

Showcase Your Expertise on Social Media

Social media provides a powerful platform that estheticians and skincare brands can use to showcase their expertise and build a loyal following. Platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok are great for sharing your skincare knowledge, amazing results, and also educating your audience. All this will help you emphasize your authority, and help your audience admire your knowledge and better understand your strengths, and see reasons to trust your business. Posting regularly across platforms is key to achieving this objective.

Pay to Reach a Wider Audience

On the one hand, creating content for your social media platforms will help your audience keep in touch with you, but organic posts are always very limited. However, paying to increase your reach will help you reach a wider audience and attract new clients. Using social media and search engine platforms to improve reach will offer a range of targeting options that allow you to reach people based on demographics, interests, and behaviors. Creating targeted ads will help you showcase your brand’s unique selling points, drive traffic to your website or booking page, and increase sales.

Leverage Email and SMS Marketing to Stay Top of Mind

Email and SMS marketing provide a great way to retarget your audience for free. By sending newsletters, promotions, and exclusive content, you can keep your audience engaged and improve customer loyalty. SMS marketing is particularly effective for time-sensitive promotions and appointment reminders.

Optimize Your Website for Search Engines

Just as you are creating content for people on social media, you also need to create content for search engines that will help improve the rate at which people can easily find you when they need information that fits your niche. To get this done, use relevant keywords, meta descriptions, and page titles to give search engines the information they need to properly catalog your content and help them understand when to show your results to your target audience.

Engage with Online Communities and Forums

Engaging with online communities and forums, like Facebook Groups, Reddit, and Quora, is a great way to build brand awareness and establish yourself as an authority in the industry. By joining relevant groups and forums, you can participate in conversations, answer questions, and share valuable insights. This can help you build relationships with potential clients while driving traffic back to your website.

Collaborate with Other Brands and Influencers

When choosing brands or influencers to collaborate with, you want to set realistic expectations and goals while considering the history of the brand/influencer. Some easy ways to get started are by doing guest blogs, hosting joint webinars or social media posts, or partnering with influencers to promote your products and services. The good thing with collaborations is that they benefit both parties, helping each other build a strong network of supporters.

Build a Supportive Community Around Your Brand

Having a supportive community around your brand is crucial for establishing long-term relationships with your audience and promoting brand loyalty. You can achieve this by creating a Facebook group for your clients/audience, hosting exclusive events, or offering personalized consultations. Doing this will help foster a two-way relationship between your community and help them feel more like stakeholders instead
