Hi there, I’m Richard, and welcome to Beauty Business Journal, a community for entrepreneurs, indie founders, marketers, and industry professionals. Every week I address reader questions about marketing, digital, growth, strategy, and anything else that’s stressing you out in your business. Send me your questions and in return I’ll share actionable insights and advice. 📝

Q: I am working on developing content for my beauty brand. Can you recommend any places for inspiration?

You know your beauty marketing content needs to be a cut above the rest. You know your copy needs to be effective and smooth, but also captivating and packed with personality. You know that when you create a blog post, video, reel (or whatever) for your brand, there has to be an idea behind it that’s more than just we’ve got to publish content today so let’s make something. Anything.

What People Say?

"Best investment in my sales and marketing budget for training and education. The combination of market insight and commentary alongside the strategic and tactical advice is fantastic. Instant ROI."
Joanna M.A.
Head of Brand & Communications
"If you work within commercial teams in the beauty industry and are looking for a small way to invest in yourself next year, I highly recommend Beauty Business Journal. No, it's not free. Yes, it's worth paying for. Better yet—expense it. Cheaper than a conference, A+ content year-round!"🚀
Roisin C.
Head of Digital Marketing
“Perfect for anyone looking to stay in tune with what's happening in the market. I’ve been to conferences in the $300-500 range that don’t deliver as much value as this $10 subscription."

Global Commercial Director

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Get My Membership Paid For?

We wanted to make it easier to get your Beauty Business Journal membership paid for by your company if you aren’t already. When you join, you’ll get a template that you can send to your manager or CFO so you can have your company expense your membership.

Our pitch to you (or your manager) is that if this membership can help you make one better decision each year, it’ll pay for itself. And if it doesn’t, you can cancel anytime.
