Consultants Play Key Roles for Skin Care Companies and Provide business consulting services with Real Measurable Results Skin care companies have their hands full in today’s competitive markets. Large skin care companies dominate retail distribution and have much larger budgets to market. As a skin care company especially if you are a startup or mid size operation, there are numerous areas of responsibility that need constant attention. Consultants can assist and guide offering real valuable services and intelligence enabling the skin care client to avoid pitfalls and mistakes. The US personal care products industry includes about 750 companies with combined annual revenue of $40 billion. Major companies include Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, and Estee Lauder. The industry is concentrated: the 50 largest firms account for nearly 70 percent of industry revenue. This industry includes companies engaged primarily in preparing, blending, compounding, and packaging toilet preparations. Products produced include makeup, shampoo, creams and lotions, perfume, skin care products, sunscreen, mouthwash, and shaving products. The Skin Care Competitive Landscape Demand is driven by population growth and consumer preferences. The profitability of individual skin care companies depends on product innovation, effective sales and marketing, and efficient operations. Large skin care companies have scale advantages in purchasing, manufacturing, distribution, and marketing. Small companies can compete effectively by offering specialized products. How Consultants Help Skin Care Companies Consultants such as the company Illumination Consulting (www.illuminationconsulting.com) have helped skin care clients in numerous ways and are continuing to support skin care clients by managing several aspects of their business successfully. Consultants can help and assist skin care companies with general business startup services and consulting, logo design, brand development, website design, ecommerce implementation, product formulation, industry & product research, advertising, and marketing services such as Search Engine Optimization for skin care websites and Pay Per Click (PPC) programs. They can also assist in the design and development of skin care blogs, html flyers, brochures, videos, and much more.
