The beauty industry has witnessed a remarkable transformation with the rapid growth of e-commerce in recent years. As consumers increasingly turn to online platforms for their beauty needs, the e-commerce landscape in India has become a thriving arena for beauty brands and retailers alike. In this article, we delve into the fascinating world of beauty e-commerce and explore the key insights driving its growth and success.

 

  • Beauty eCommerce in India:

    The beauty e-commerce market in India is projected to reach a staggering $6 billion by 2025, driven by a surge in online shopping habits and digital adoption. This remarkable growth opens up a world of opportunities for beauty brands to harness the potential of ecommerce and reach a vast audience of digitally savvy consumers.

 

  • Factors Fueling Beauty Ecommerce Growth:

    Several factors have contributed to the rapid growth of beauty ecommerce in India. The rise of Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) brands has disrupted traditional distribution channels, allowing beauty businesses to connect directly with consumers and build strong brand loyalty. Additionally, influencer marketing has emerged as a powerful tool for driving brand awareness and engagement in the beauty space. Furthermore, evolving consumer behaviour, influenced by technology and changing lifestyles, has fueled the demand for convenient and personalized shopping experiences.

Inclusivity, cruelty-free products, and personalization have emerged as pivotal trends in beauty ecommerce. Brands that embrace diversity and cater to individual preferences are resonating with consumers, gaining trust, and fostering brand loyalty.

 

  • Challenges Faced by Beauty Brands:

    While the beauty ecommerce market presents immense opportunities, it is not without its challenges. Heightened competition among beauty brands necessitates differentiation through unique value propositions and customer-centric strategies. Moreover, the rising cost of customer acquisition and retaining brand loyalty in a competitive market demand innovative approaches to stand out from the crowd.

 

  • Insights for Success:

    Amidst the ever-evolving landscape, beauty brands can find success by tapping into the preferences of their target audience. Vegan, cruelty-free, and inclusive products are set to dominate the market, reflecting the growing consciousness of consumers towards ethical and sustainable choices. Personalization, both in product offerings and shopping experiences, will be a key differentiator for brands aiming to capture the hearts of consumers.

Let us discuss some internal aspects to the AI tech that people so profoundly know it but do not speak openly:

    1. Marketers are not really ready for AI Step ahead yet!

Artificial Intelligence thoroughly relies on customer data across all devices and channels to understand the user behavior. The user data has the ability to determine what millions of potential customers want even before them knowing it themselves. These insights are merely helpful to get integrated data. A lot of data is available with marketers today but most of these data are unorganized and lags segmentations. The very first step to move towards getting ready for AI is to organize and integrate the data. For that, you require a clean current data that encompasses the information that is gathered at customer touchpoints. Centralizing customer data is another big step to organize big data; the data can be segmented through different departments, vendors and systems. The organized processes will help to set you apart from your competitors and helps you take advantage of AI’s potential.

Marketers need a better foundation that helps to evaluate what AI applications are used for and when is the best time to use them.

    1. AI powered Email Marketing won’t show big leaps

AI has created a lot of buzz amongst marketers and it feels that AI has literally given the solution for every problem. Email Marketing is the best option preferred across different channels and age groups by 2:1 ratio. According to DMA’s 2016 Consumer Email Tracker, 80% of consumers state that less than half of the emails they receive are relevant or interesting.

For starting Personalization in Email Marketing following are the steps –

      • Check how often the customers want to be emailed and if they would like be contacted for any specific products or events
      • Creating customer segments that helps to deliver personal touch
      • Sending Welcome Emails, Thank You and Birthday Emails
      • Emailing your customers when they abandon their shopping carts
      • Reminding them about events, offers and sales

The above things are easy to set up and with regular process; it helps to improve the performance. Make use of automated email tools, the AI idea cannot be achieved with one big step but by taking small baby steps.

Emails uses send time optimization that uses analytics to check on engagement history that predicts the best time to send emails to individuals. Optimizing your send time becomes pretty simpler with automated campaigns and it starts as soon as you hit the “send” button. The recipients receive emails at specific time of the day that works best for the brands.

Artificial Intelligence use email tools that make use of language algorithms to create strong subject lines, calls to action and body copy. The Analytics information evaluates hundreds of sentiments, emotions and phrases, AI predict the language that will best increase engagement and reflect the brand voice.

AI will be beneficial for fast track sales by giving customized messages to people who are aware and ready to buy. The businesses will be able to aggregate insights across multiple data sources that helps identify potential customers based on purchases they have made from other companies.

Social Media marketing is a great booster to generate ROI

Latest research from DMA states that only 48% of marketers agree that social media is actually gaining them any ROI. There are some of the trends that DMA realized in its reports, but not all are positive. Almost, 77% of marketers do use at least one source of social network for promoting their brand. The research was done with 111 marketers from B2B and B2C companies, in 2017 that they did their own research with a sample size of 609. They result found a divide in the way marketers see the effects of Social media marketing

What channels are used for marketing?

Marketers would obviously be directed towards the channel that is most effective to them. Twitter is number 1 choice since it doesn’t have any filtering and marketers can be sure that the posts will appear on follower’s feeds without paying anything. Facebook ranks 2nd overall and stands at number 1 for B2C because it has considerable margin. It really makes sense for the brands to target it. Instagram has overtaken Twitter, these are clear signs of how popular it will become with marketers.

Social media platforms

For what purposes brands use social networks?

Most brands are using social networks today but what are primarily their aims? It was interestingly found that it varies depending if the brand is engaging in or organic social activity.

Social Organic marketing

social media paid

There is some type of logic that is involved in using paid social media differently. Lead generation can easily justify the investments that are being made but at the same it’s hard to convince marketers of the need for paid investments in customer engagements. It’s worth mentioning that all social media activities by means are a paid activity since you are paying someone for doing it.

How much you agree to below given statement?

Social media survey

Organic is undoubtedly better than social media while getting your perceptions clear for ROI. A mere 48% feels they see results with social marketing it shows how others are failing to engage rightly with right platforms. One-third of respondents neither agreed nor disagreed with the statements; this means they do not have clear picture of the impact of social media on ROI. This clearly states the need of better use of analytics and attribution models amongst marketers.

How to get more ROI from social?

The most obvious way to improve on ROI is to do your social activities in a better way. There are millions of posts online demonstrating how to boost engagement on social media. Read the posts where you can seek more information giving you better returns.

Using social data for other channels

Social media is too vast and often we see customers do not properly utilize the insight it provides. More money is spent on crafting social campaigns. The data achieved can be used for targeted email marketing or on-site messaging.

Social Data for Channels

The above chart clearly indicates that only few marketers used social data for messaging and generating relevant content. The data gathered from social can help increase lead generation and revenue on the main site since customers like to respond to messages that are tailored to them. There is great scope of improvement here with majority of brand rarely use social data for other channels.

Research from Smartinsights members

Digital Marketing activities

The latest research conducted by SmartInsights in partnership with TFM (Technology for Marketing) and Ecommerce expo has bought forward things that marketers think of social media on ROI in 2017. The senior marketers were asked about channels they use most and the least ROI ones, a total of 609 marketers took the survey and it revealed that social media is far from best channel in terms of ROI.

The results reveal that organic social is a poor performer for those who think it gives low ROI while it did quite well for those who think it gave high ROI. There is a big divide in marketing community for how they perceive the effect of social marketing. It could be because of over-hyped marketing or may be some socials just do not work in particular industries.
