GRAB A FREE BEAUTY BUSINESS STARTER PACK
A complete tool kit that will guarantee your brand stands out and gets noticed. Infographics, cheat sheets, templates, roadmaps, videos guides and tons of resources await!
If you are focusing on getting into retail then you will love my Get Retail Ready VIP Day.
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.

In case you need any more persuading, this is what my customers have to say about my services.
“I had an insightful meeting with Rachel. She highlighted logistic issues I was completely unaware of as a newbie to the beauty industry. This set me in good stead for a new high street retailer who we’re about to launch with in August. I felt like I knew exactly the right questions to ask as a result and could approach the new partnership with complete clarity. Thank you Rachel, can’t recommend your work highly enough.”
Michele Scot-Lynch, Founder of Boucleme
“In creating a new small business, there are many aspects that are of the unknown. Warehousing was one of them. Rachel Whittaker made this educational process seamless by first educating myself and the team about what warehousing entails, the information we would need to gather and helped organise visits with warehouses she felt best suited our needs. She has been invaluable in providing information and guiding us along the way on who would be the best match. In short, she simplified a complete unknown to us. I could not recommend her more highly.”
Dr Maryam Zamani Founder of MZ Skin who booked a Get Retail Ready VIP Day and went on to use my Warehouse Match Service
“I have been very impressed by Rachel Whittaker’s ability to deliver the appropriate logistic solution for Daughter of the Soil skincare via her free warehouse match service. She has been able to consider our growth aspirations and find the most suitable warehouse to support us in fulfilling our customers’ needs and business goals.
Rachel is an extremely helpful and engaging individual, who has a wealth of knowledge and experience in logistics which is very reassuring for a startup business like ours. Working with her has been an absolute pleasure and I would recommend her services to anyone seeking the best warehouse solution for their business.”
Maria Magembe, Founder of Daughter Of The Soil
“We would highly recommend Rachel, at Indie Beauty Delivers, to any brands and businesses who are looking to launch for the first time, or review and improve their current logistics processes. The area of logistics can often be dismissed as one of the last things that needs to be considered – but getting it right from the start is really crucial to success – and ultimately, profitability! We have worked with Rachel to solve problems with our logistics processes and to source new providers and suppliers that are better suited to our business and brands and have found her breadth of experience and knowledge to be a real asset.”
Clare Rees, Bell & Whistle Ltd
“Atlantis Skincare had a workshop with Rachel-it was nearly 8 hours of training on how to work with retail shops. It was amazing experience-every minute was full of value. Rachel was full of ideas and support. We got a clear picture of how to work with retailers and what to expect when we arrive to negotiations etc. I was so impressed. I am learning on regular bases and this was one of those trainings where every penny was worth the investment! And every minute of your time is very well spent. Highly recommended for any start up beauty business and -everyone who wants to work with retail shops. Thank you so much Rachel. There is a lot of hard work ahead but we know what to do! And it is great to know you are here for us next 6 months after training!!”
Zane Piese, Founder of Atlantis Skincare who booked my Get Retail Ready VIP Day
“Just to say a massive THANK YOU!! Yesterday was invaluable and I now have the ideas flowing with a huge kick up the backside to get the show on the road.”
Claire Barker, Founder of Hive Originals who booked my Social Media 101 VIP Day
“Rachel is so knowledgable and generous with her time and content. We met for a packed and inspiring VIP day in London recently, that Rachel had tailor made to my exact requirements. She thought of everything, even things I hadn’t even seen yet! Which, to be honest, is no surprise – Although she give away loads of amazing and brilliant content for FREE (!) all around starting and growing an Indie beauty brand (her mega passion) via her opt-ins and Facebook Lives, her super-genius zone is around the warehousing and logistics for online and bricks and mortar retail – which isn’t surprising really considering her 15 year’s experience running a warehouse for a well know national brand. She’s absolutely your go to girl, and I don’t know why you’d go anywhere else! Go check her out and sign up immediately.”
Kathie Bishop, Founder of Into The Wylde
