Flourishing in the personal care industry isn't just about offering top-notch services — it's also about capturing the right audience at the right time. If you’re seeking guidance on how to market your personal care business and expand your clientele, New Mover Marketing is the solution.
According to McKinsey & Company, the skincare, fragrance, makeup, and haircare market is projected to reach a staggering $580 billion by 2027, with an annual growth rate of 6%. The beauty and personal care industry is not just surviving — it's thriving. With 42% of consumers enjoying trying new brands, the door is wide open for personal care businesses to introduce themselves to new residents.
The New Mover Advantage
New movers are in a state of transition, seeking to establish new routines and connections. Nearly 42 million people moved in 2021, according to the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau. They represent a fresh audience, unswayed by competitor loyalty, and are actively looking to form new brand relationships. By targeting new movers, personal care businesses can become the first to welcome them, creating an immediate connection that can blossom into long-term loyalty.
New Mover campaigns are a highly targeted way of marketing your personal care business, focusing on individuals who are most likely in need of local services and products as they settle into their new environment. Even if new movers do not immediately need the services offered, the marketing materials increase brand awareness, making it more likely they will think of your business when the need arises.
Our Town America: A Partner in Growth
With a legacy spanning more than five decades, Our Town America strives to perfect the art of first impressions. In a world where digital noise is loud, the tactile nature of direct mail cuts through the clutter. It allows personal care businesses to craft a narrative that aligns with the values and aspirations of new movers. Whether it's the story of a family-run salon that's been styling the neighborhood for generations or a modern studio that's as eco-conscious and style-savvy, New Mover Marketing delivers these stories directly into the hands of potential customers.
Our personalized Welcome Package makes new movers feel valued and welcomed into the community. Unlike other marketing strategies that may offer discounts, our Welcome Packages provide a one-time housewarming gift from local businesses, which can create a more memorable experience for the new resident. We also offer category exclusivity, meaning your business won’t have to compete with others in the same category within your chosen geographic area.
While we have a broad national reach, Our Town America focuses on local communities, understanding that small businesses are the backbone of the economy. Our data-driven approach ensures that personal care businesses can tailor their services to meet the needs of the community. Whether it's a neighborhood that values organic products or one that's home to a younger, trend-setting demographic, New Mover Marketing campaigns can be customized to resonate with the local culture.
Our new mover lists are compiled from nationally recognized suppliers who identify anyone who filed some form of change of address over the last 30 days, such as deed transactions, credit cards, utility connections, credit bureaus, magazines, driver’s licenses, and voter registrations. We scrub the list for errors and duplicates to ensure our lists are accurate for marketing your personal care business to achieve your goals.
While New Mover Marketing is impactful, Our Town America's approach integrates digital follow-ups, ensuring initial contact is just the beginning of the journey. With integrated digital follow-ups, it’s easier to track the effectiveness of New Mover Marketing campaigns through redemption rates and other metrics.
