If you are looking to launch your brand in the UK you have some exciting and challenging times ahead.

I would love to be your ‘woman on the ground’, your own personal UK beauty logistics expert.

I offer brands looking to launch in the UK a warehouse match service and a range of consultancy services to get you up to speed with what UK retailers expect and what UK consumers want.

I am a UK beauty logistics expert and use my 15 years of insider knowledge and experience to determine exactly what you want and need in a UK logistics operation.

There are two ways I can help you:

WAREHOUSE MATCH SERVICE

If you want to work with UK retailers then it is essential for you to have a logistics base here in the UK.

Short lead times and just in time order cycles mean retailers expect delivery of orders often within 48 to 72 hours.

You need to be able to react fast and flexibly to all retailer demands.

My warehouse match service links you with the best beauty specialist warehouses in the UK. They are tried, tested and appraised by me. They come with the Indie Beauty Delivers seal of approval.

My expertise means: 

  • all the time you give to finding a UK warehouse will be targeted and constructive so you can concentrate on keeping your brand moving forward without distraction.  
  • you’ll get direct access to the best UK warehouses in the industry so you can avoid wasting time and raising those stress levels.  
  • you’ll get a great deal negotiated by someone with insider knowledge so you can be confident you’ve found the right skills and expertise at the right price.  
  • you can get advice and help throughout the process so you feel relaxed and confident with every decision you make.  

So, what exactly is included in the service?

Who are you? First off I spend some time with you so I can understand who you are and where you’re going, what’s makes you tick and what really turns you off.  

Brand Profile. I then pull together a profile of your brand which I use to showcase you to potential warehouse partners. This is where we get some numbers in. What level of storage you need, how many orders you get, average units per order ………. but don’t panic I’ll pull all this together for you so you don’t have to stress!  

Match. Using your profile I approach all the warehouses and ask them to submit their tender. I only work with warehouses who are at the top of their game. My years in the industry mean I have exceptionally high standards and any warehouse I recommend has had to jump through some serious hoops to work with me.  

Your choice. Once I’m confident I’ve found the best matches you’ll receive a presentation containing all their details. Who are they, where are they based, who they work for, what are their key skills and expertise, their tariff (which I will have checked is bang on industry standard), client testimonials. Basically everything you’ll need to make the choice about who you’d like to investigate in more detail.  

Ongoing support. As you take your investigation further and visit your matches I’ll be on the end of the telephone or email to answer questions and give advice. Your access to my expertise during this time is unlimited. Just give me a call whenever you want to check anything.  

Contract negotiation. When it comes to the point of negotiating the contract with your warehouse I’ll be on hand to give tips on how to get the best deal and will give everything a once over so you can sign on the dotted line with confidence.  

GET UK RETAIL READY VIP DAY

If you are focusing on getting into UK retail then you will love my UK Retail Ready VIP Day

VIP Days are one to one and tailored specifically to your business. If you are visiting the UK we do the workshop face to face otherwise we use an online meeting platform instead.

In the workshop we work through my 4 stage method to retail success.

1. Nail your targets and perfect your pitch – we profile the retailers and identify and target the ones best suited to your brand. Then we go deep on winning pitching techniques that will make you stand out and get noticed.

2. Get your social media buzzing – we will make you irresistible to retailers by designing a social media strategy that will get new followers, increase engagement and make you the talk of the town.

3. Prepare your awesome infrastructure – we go behind the scenes in the 3rd stage and make sure that you have a logistics infrastructure that can deal with the demands of the retail supply chain and we get clear on all the costs to ensure you can negotiate profitably.

4. Manage retail relationships – Retailers don’t always give an instant yes, and I bet you worry about how often you should contact them and what you should say. I mean, there is a limit to how many times you can ask them if they need to know anything else right? This final module goes into detail on original and creative ways to manage relationships with buyers and guide them to their final decision.

The workshop will

*provide you with relevant, mega useful information and tools that will ensure you understand the intricacies of the UK market

*provide you with a road map that is easy and clear to follow
*give you the confidence and self-belief to make an impact in the UK market
*make you stand out and get noticed above the competition

The workshop is suitable if you are aiming to work with

*high street retailers like Boots and Superdrug
*department stores like Debenhams and John Lewis
*supermarkets like Tesco’s and Waitrose
*premium retailers like Harrods and Selfridges
*online retailers like ASOS and Not On The High Street
*specialist retailers like Space NK and Planet Organic

I understand that it can take time for new skills and strategies to sink in and work out so the benefits of this day stop end at the end of the day.

I am passionate about your success and so for 6 months after our day together I will be there to support you. Any questions or challenges just drop me an email or give me a call.
