How to use ingredient-focused keywords to boost sales
Marketing natural beauty products in the same way as general cosmetics will be largely ineffective, because the competition for beauty-related keywords is so fierce. Consumers who are interested in health and health-related beauty products speak a different language. If you really want to drive sales, you’ll want to be sure you are speaking that language, too. My suggestion is to think like a health nutrition brand, and focus on ingredients.
Most natural beauty brands will rely on the keywords general keywords like “organic”, “all-natural”, “plant-derived” or even “chemical-free”. This is an approach that will keep you on par with the competition, but not help you pull ahead. To rise to the top in search results, you will want to consider adding keywords that are more specific to your product or brand. Usually, this means focusing on a trendy ingredient.
Leveraging a trendy ingredient will help carve out a niché for your product. If you sell multiple products, you’ll want to isolate one ingredient for each item. Some examples might be a beauty product that contains hemp. Google “hemp beauty products” right now; I’ll wait…
