Do you know any woman (or even man) out there who isn’t interested in makeup or who has never used makeup, skincare or any form of beauty product? You’ll have a hard time looking for one because everyone is into beauty now. In fact, the beauty industry is one of the biggest industries in the world! If you’re looking for something to invest on — you’re in the right place!
Now, there are 4 ways to earn through makeup — to do, to make, to sell and to teach. Today, we’re going to explore teaching.
The Profit from Makeup Academies
The reason why you need to explore this is because there is a lot of money from teaching. Imagine this scenario — earning money without shelling out that much capital because you’re not really selling a product, you’re selling a service. So you don’t need to purchase the items you’re gonna sell. You just need to be really good at teaching.
How to Open a Makeup Academy
There are 2 set ups you can consider. One is teaching online and another is having a physical school.
When you have a physical makeup academy, you can teach just about anything! You can teach basic modules, advanced modules, hairstyling modules and even SFX and airbrush modules. When you go for online teaching, you can only teach some of those modules because it will be difficult to teach other things online. But the good part is, you won’t need to spend for rent or any fees that you might incur when you own or lease a commercial space.
As you go along your classes, you’ll discover how tiring it is to teach. If you start to have a surge of enrollees, you’re definitely going to need more teachers. Explore on hiring people and training them to teach the way that you teach. Sometimes, people are more keen about who is going to teach them than the academy name itself. The institution doesn’t matter that much because, at the end of the day, it’s the mentor who will provide the knowledge and hands-on training for a student.
Most enrollees, especially the beginners, won’t have their professional makeup kit setup yet. This means that your makeup academy needs to have the learning aids your students will need. This should cover everything from makeup to tools and everything in between. Understand that makeup is a form of art and it’s a skill that you need to teach with a lot of practical examinations. It’s one thing to memorize theories on beauty but it’s totally another thing to know how to apply these theories.
This is probably one of the hardest things you will do at the beginning of your makeup artistry career. Marketing services like this takes a lot of leg work. You’re going to need to register your business, show your credibility through a strong online presence and explore many partnerships with other people in the industry to get your name out there. That being said, it’s going to be at least a year of tying up with the right names in the industry to really get the ball rolling. This shouldn’t be a problem as long as you can back up your claims with a good aptitude in teaching makeup!
Just like any other business, the beginning is the hardest. But once this is established, you’re sure to grow your clientele exponentially and you’ll have a lot of fun reaping what you sow!
