Are you tired of working for somebody else? Do you want to start your own business so that you can be your own boss? It's not always easy to figure out what sort of products you can sell that other people will be willing to purchase. One thing that you may not have considered, but that could do well, is having your own line of private label cosmetics. There are many reasons for doing this, but here are a few that you should consider:
Small storage size: When selling products, it's often a good idea to have a wide variety of products to choose from so that your potential customers can find something that they like. With private label cosmetics, this might be something like a concealer and a foundation that work well together or an anti-aging serum and a peel that rejuvenate the skin when used together. The more choices you have, the easier it is for customers to find something that they like. With large products, storing a wide number of varieties can take up a significant amount of room. You could struggle to find somewhere to put everything and may have to spend money that you don't have to rent a storage unit. Or you can sell small cosmetic items where a supply of your entire product line may not take up more than the space of a single closet.
Easy shipping: High shipping costs can turn away customers, leaving them to find a similar product elsewhere. With private label cosmetics, each individual product is small and shouldn't need much packaging. This means lower shipping costs for you and your customers, keeping your business competitive with other similar products. The small size and low shipping weight of cosmetic products will mean that you can offer free shipping if your customers purchase a certain amount of products at one time. You can then ship everything out in Priority Mail Flat Rate packaging for the same, or nearly the same, cost as shipping a single item at a time.
Impulse purchases: With many product types, your customers may spend days or weeks debating whether or not to make a certain purchase. They need to weigh whether or not a big-ticket item is worth buying or if they should save their money for something else. On the other hand, cosmetics are inexpensive enough that many customers will buy them almost instantly if they see something that they like. In fact, even when sales of other products are down due to a recession, the sales of lipstick, lipgloss, and other similar products often go up. Even when on a limited budget, people want to look nice. Your line of private label cosmetics could be exactly what they're looking for.
