Over the previous three years I’ve spent numerous time researching and testing numerous advertising strategies, totally different hair extension suppliers, even website hosting corporations until I used to be 100% sure that the right combo has been discovered and that I’m prepared to share that with you.

We are virtually prepared to start however earlier than we achieve this, there’s one last item that we want to speak about and that’s…
Writing new ebook is a tough and time consuming course of. No marvel that all the publishers and writers have a piece devoted to thanking all of the those that have had helped them. We usually are not an exception and do need to thank our family and friends for supporting us thorough the method.
Step 1: Best Hair Extensions Suppliers
The very first thing you’ll want to do is discover a dependable hair extensions provider as with out one, you may as nicely not begin enterprise in any respect. Some may argue that writing a marketing strategy must be the primary precedence, nevertheless, for those who don’t have any clue concerning the costs or delivery choices, there isn’t any approach so that you can write an correct plan in any respect.
So we’ve launched a brand new store (to simulate our readers expertise) and over the course of final two years, examined a bunch of hair extension suppliers (wholesale and retail), starting from the preferred ones to the unknown manufacturers from Asia, India and Europe. Now, for authorized causes we will’t point out any of them however a few of their selections have utterly shocked us. Believe it or not bot a standard theme was this: a variety of suppliers can be pleasant and give you the “best price and quality” solely to disregard you afterwards. Why? Because your orders have decreased. That’s it. They didn’t have if it was a change in design, server downtime or anything, proper after you have been not sending sufficient orders, they might merely ignore you and begin writing new victims on how they care about their shoppers and different lies.
A whole lot of suppliers can be pleasant and give you the “best price and quality” solely to disregard you afterwards. Why? Because your orders have decreased.
Just picture how badly can this have an effect on your enterprise. Not solely will they begin ignoring you, however you gained’t be capable of fulfill your buyer’s orders as properly. That’s not all although, because it takes months to seek out a top quality hair extensions provider (receiving samples, checking high quality, and so on.) your corporation are just about doomed and would convey no revenue for the subsequent few months.
What we did was this: After refining our hair extension suppliers listing (from 67 to 15), we went forward and created all types of challenges for them, designed to check numerous enterprise elements and challenges. For instance: we might ask if we will use their inventory pictures (some refused), inventory textual content (all refused as nobody needs to have clone shops) and even when we might use their delivery corporations. Then we feed the remaining 7 corporations with our orders and see how every thing was dealt with. At first all the things was clean as butter however once we began having first issues with a few of our orders being broken (surprisingly) not all suppliers provided for us to obtain a refund. So what we had left was solely an inventory of 5 corporations and all of them did a reasonably good job at supplying us with high quality hair extensions.
The ultimate determination got here to this. We merely requested ourselves: if we have been to make use of a single provider for a lot of months (or years), which certainly one of them can be one of the best for each beginning and large companies. This consists of revenue margins, delivery service, hair high quality, the velocity at which hair extensions have been despatched, response occasions, potential to provide huge numbers at later time, drop delivery choices (when you don’t know what precisely drop delivery is, don’t fear as we’ll talk about this within the subsequent chapter). Now whereas anybody may give you an honest suggestion, we needed to do greater than that. We agreed that it’s going to be both a provider that we will belief a hundred percent or no provider suggestion in any respect. I imply, if we will’t stand by our determination then there was no level of continuous writing our “Hair Extensions Business Bible” in any respect. Thankfully, we got here to an settlement and made our selection.
We agreed that it’s going to be both a provider that we will belief a hundred percent or no provider suggestion in any respect.
At the top of the day nevertheless, we needed to decide a single provider, which had met our standards for each new and present enterprise. So what did we decide? AiryHair, and right here is why:
- Their worth / high quality ratio is miles forward of the competitors
- They all the time shipped solely the very best high quality hair
- They by no means ignored us even once we didn’t have any orders for days
- They provided to trade their items for free of charge
- They are actually pleasant in the direction of new clients, which is likely one of the most necessary issues a beginning enterprise wants
- They supply a drop delivery (a “must met” standards for our retailer)
Overall, we have been actually impressed with their method of doing enterprise. No marvel AH ranks so properly amongst massive guys.
P.S. After revealing that we’re writing a guide and that EtherealHair was our option to the CEO of the corporate, not solely did he have a superb giggle but in addition provided to host and fund our guide without charge (for this reason their emblem is in our ebook, which we added ourselves, they by no means requested for something).
We couldn’t stress this sufficient: when you don’t assume that the provider above will suit your wants, please make investments a while and discover a top quality provider that may ft all of your wants.
Now that you’ve discovered a top quality provider, it’s time to determine…
Step 2: Dropshipping vs. Inventory Stocking
The subsequent factor you want to do is determine whether or not you need to use a drop delivery service or keep a listing by yourself.
What precisely is drop delivery? It’s a easy administration method, which lets you save your self from pointless investments and ahead all of your orders to the provider (EtherealHair on this case), which can then package deal your items and ship to your buyer with out mentioning their very own identify. The end result? You don’t need to retailer something or take into consideration provide chains, every little thing is dealt with by the provider, you merely ship them orders they usually ship the products, but you’re the one taking all of the revenue and stripping their unique model so your buyer truly thinks that your store is the one that’s sending hair extensions. Drop delivery is nothing in need of a miracle, nevertheless, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, the native supply occasions are slower and you may’t management the package deal. Is this a ok purpose to keep away from drop delivery in any respect? Of course not however let’s take into consideration options.
Drop delivery is nothing in need of a miracle, nevertheless, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, the native supply occasions are slower and you may’t management the package deal.
The subsequent factor you need to contemplate, in fact, is stocking your personal stock, which lets you shortly ship package deal within the close by neighborhoods or nations which are nearer to you than your provider. However, all of it comes down to a price: it’s essential make investments hundreds of colours and inventory all types of various extensions, which you won’t even be capable of promote.
What else are you able to do? A mixture of each! Assuming you’re promoting worldwide, you possibly can retailer few fashions in your house (or a retailer), and ship them to the purchasers close by, leading to a a lot quicker supply time and extra glad clients, and for nations that may obtain package deal in 20 – 30 days anyway, depart that to your provider.
However, should you solely promote regionally, storing hair extensions might be a very helpful asset to your corporation, as we have now seen a variety of instances the place an area buyer would simply decide one other model, which was capable of ship product not in 20 however 5 days.
So having stated all that, let’s take a look at the benefits and drawbacks of every service.
|Does not require any funding||Requires a big funding|
|You can’t management supply occasions||You have full management over supply occasions|
|Not a lot management over your package deal||You have full management over your package deal|
|No worries about stock and inventory||Constant worrying about stock|
|Risk free||Requires taking large dangers|
It must be additionally famous that if you begin your hair extensions enterprise, you haven’t any concept what hair extensions your clients are going to order as you haven’t any gross sales knowledge about the preferred size, sort, colour or hair texture. Our suggestion? Go with the drop delivery and broaden if you actually need to.
There is yet one more various that one ought to think about: promoting hair extensions utilizing an associates program. It works equally to a drop delivery service and requires no funding in your half, the truth is, it doesn’t require so that you can do something aside from give a particularly generated hyperlink to your mates. While there are numerous totally different packages, we strongly advise you to select one which ensures to credit score you, even when your referred individual doesn’t purchase immediately. For instance: AiryHair Affiliate Program will save a particular cookie on referrers pc for greater than a yr, which signifies that even when they determine to not purchase something however for some purpose remembers about EtherealHair 10 months later once they really need extensions, you’ll nonetheless get a credit score. We will speak extra about getting began with an associates program on the later sections of this ebook so if it nonetheless seems mysterious to you, don’t fear! We are simply getting began.
Now that you’ve discovered a provider, know their costs and have an concept on which delivery service you’ll use, right here comes the subsequent half…
Step 2: How to Write Hair Extensions Business Plan?
Writing a correct marketing strategy is the second most necessary factor after discovering a provider, as with out one, you gained’t have any concept about your deliberate income, investments, enterprise alternatives and so forth. Below, we’re going to listing a number of the most essential issues that one ought to embrace when writing an amazing marketing strategy.
You do have to know your audience. Since you’re promoting hair extensions, the more than likely group goes to be women, nevertheless, one also needs to contemplate hair extensions for males, which is a rising but not flooded area of interest. In addition to that, in case you are concentrating on younger females, then remember that your website also needs to be focused in the direction of such viewers. For instance: the inclusion of extremely fashionable social networks, phrases and expressions which might be used within the feminine circles and so forth. However, in the event you determine to go to the utterly totally different path and promote hair extensions to older women, then different elements also needs to be thought-about. For instance: aged individuals don’t really feel save when buying on-line so including a method to order by way of telephone is a should. All in all, it comes right down to your audience, now sit again and write that right down to your marketing strategy.
Elderly individuals don’t really feel save when purchasing on-line so including a solution to order by way of telephone is a should package deal.
Now that you’ve established your audience, the very subsequent factor it’s worthwhile to do is research your fundamental rivals. So in case you are promoting hair extensions for aged, simply Google “elderly hair extensions” or another key phrase mixture you’ll be able to consider and go to at the very least 5 competitor websites. Write down each single factor that grabbed your consideration. Was it an incredible design? Or perhaps a catchy emblem and superb merchandise pictures? Be positive to notice all of that as you may be the one making an attempt to outperform them. In addition to that, undergo their checkout course of (however cancel the final minute) and word the issues that made an impression on you. Having an incredible checkout expertise is likely one of the most crucial elements of the profitable retailer.
Before you begin dreaming concerning the tens of millions of dollars that you’ll be making each month, be actually conservative in relation to your monetary projections. Write down your objectives for the subsequent 6 months, together with bills (corresponding to advertising). Also, it is best to determine the typical revenue you need to earn for each set bought. In the instance under we’re going to use a 35-50% revenue margin and the typical order worth of $112.7, so a easy type may look one thing like this:
|Jun||$zero||$300 (Contest / Ads)||48||$5409.6||50%||$2404.eight|
* This assumes you’re utilizing EtherealHair’s custom store offer, which provides you a lifetime wholesale membership, free retailer set up, free handle and free website online internet hosting for a yr.
You are free so as to add % progress, excel diagrams, sudden costs, and different issues that you simply may discover helpful. It’s all concerning the common order worth and your revenue afterwards. Here are a number of the graph examples:
Another necessary factor to think about is the time you’re prepared to take a position into your corporation. If you will have a full time job, then please plan accordingly and don’t create unrealistic over too formidable objectives. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself dropping motivation earlier than reaping the rewards.
One factor I like to inform my shoppers when they’re creating their companies is that this: assume like a banker, would you give a mortgage to a beginning enterprise like yourselves? If sure, why, if no, why not? Write down the solutions and work on eliminating as many “no’s” as potential.
