DIY Masterclass 02: Launch Your Natural Skincare Line
Your friends, family, customers love your natural skincare products– that’s great and something worth celebrating in and of itself. Now you want to launch a retail-ready product and expand to retail/e-commerce which is a great next step—but not always a clear one, as you’re finding out.
So how can you get there?
Our “Masterclass 02” is a professional-level business class on launching a retail-ready natural skincare product. We’re offering up our own personal experiences, strategies and tips on how we got national retailer buyers (like Whole Foods, Chapters Indigo, The Shopping Channel, Well.ca) to stock and carry Nuworld Botanicals skincare products, how we grew our retail presence and how you can do the same. We’ll address the issue of packaging and labeling, insurance, retail margins, how to craft a successful sales pitch, working with buyers as well as the importance of a product’s Suggested Retail Price (SRP). You will also mix and master raw ingredients to create two signature products of your own. Our Masterclass is part teaching, part DIY lab. A Certificate of Completion is available for Nuworld Botanicals Masterclass 02.
Topics will include:
-Branding strategy (getting clear on your proposition)
-Labeling & UPC codes
-Product insurance requirements
-Pricing for success (SRP, gross margin)
-Crafting your retail buyer pitch
-Working with retail buyers
-Open Lab– create 2 retail skincare products in this DIY open lab portion of the class
If you have sample products bring them along– we’re happy to give professional feedback and advice for next steps.
