Project Description

Who are we?

Inez Beauty, LLC is a technology company, with an on-demand business model, that connects merchants within the Health and Beauty Industry to its local consumers.  We provide a pick-up service for beauty supply stores and direct delivery to customers nationwide- Inez Beauty is considered the new “DoorDash” for the Health and Beauty Industry.

Why are we fundraising?

During our onboarding process in October 2021, our technology crashed due to poor development from previous developers.  This horrific event caused a major standstill leaving our 122 merchants unserviced.  Since then, we have been raising funding so we can continue with our bootstrap launch in Georgia, service our interested merchants and continue to expand.

What problem does the project address? 

Problems:

1. Lack of technology/mobility- Beauty supply store merchants have limited consumer accessibility, ie: in-store purchasing.

2. Lack of marketing platforms- Health and beauty merchants are not afforded the option of various marketing outlets outside of social media.

3. Outdated structure- The opportunity for business reconstruction (phasing out the overhead cost of maintaining a brick and mortar and operating solely online) is not provided within this industry. 

What are the anticipated economic outcomes of the proposal? 

As consumers' buying habits have adopted the "contactless shopping" method, more business owners are partnering with technology companies such as DoorDash, UberEats, and Grub Hub to meet demands.  Inez Beauty, LLC is also a technology company that can provide "contactless shopping" for consumers, and an option for business reconstruction.  

Solutions:

1. Valued Added Services- Inez Beauty, LLC is designed to provide a pick-up service for beauty merchants and direct delivery service within minutes to customers nationwide. 

2. Market Expansion- Inez Beauty, LLC will connect merchants within the health and beauty industry to further open the market to potentially increase business revenue through our innovative platforms.

3. Structure Redesign- Merchants can explore the possibility of limiting or eliminating the overhead cost of a brick and mortar or provide extended business hours (ie. online purchasing hours). Merchants can also lower theft rates with fewer in-store visits which will help with loss in inventory.

What are other organizations doing to address this problem? 

The issues surrounding convenience and accessibility between merchants and consumers are constantly being addressed as technology companies are innovating apps catered to specific industries' needs/demands.  The restaurant industry was the first to successfully partner with technology companies causing a notable influx in revenue.  Other industries will eventually partner with technology companies to provide more buying options for their consumers.

What targeted communities will benefit from your project proposal? 

1. Beauty Supply Merchants- Inez Beauty, LLC is aiming to target merchants within the beauty industry's commercial market.  These merchants include large beauty supply stores (ie: Ulta Beauty) and small "mom & pop" beauty stores. 

2. Consumers- Men and women of all ages are becoming more familiar with accessing businesses online and through mobile apps. The trend of "contactless purchasing" is flourishing within markets that utilize these types of services.  

3. Employees- At Inez Beauty, LLC, we will strive to provide competitive wages to all employees.  We will continue to provide opportunities for employment with “flexible scheduling” as it’s becoming more popular amongst working class citizens.

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What motivates us?:

    Restaurants and other retailers have partnered with technology companies such as DoorDash or UberEats to help make purchasing more convenient for consumers, especially during COVID; however, merchants within the hair and beauty industry (catering to minority consumers) did not.  Inez Beauty, LLC was created to provide a similar service for Health and Beauty merchants- an overlooked segment of the market.  

  • How did we get started?:

    Before my mother (Marsha Inez) passed away in 2018 from cancer, we started a business plan for a beauty supply store with a delivery service.  After she passed away, I decided to continue building upon that business plan; however, in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic took over the economy and I did not see it feasible to build a "brick-n-mortar" business.  

     

    With the delivery portion of the business plan and the money my mother left, I decided to extract that portion and create Inez Beauty- a technology company (similar to DoorDash) but for the Health and Beauty Industry.  The project has been self-funded and underwent the "friends and family" round but, we are at a standstill with this project due to a lack of funding.

  • Where do we see the business going?: (Projected Goals)

    Near Future (now - 8 months)

    We plan to "bootstrap" our Georgia launch for more data traction to attract VCs or Angel Investors. 

    Future (8 months- 1.5 years)

    We plan to launch in 6 different states and prepare for our next business venture to corner the market.

    Future-Future (1.5 years- ongoing years)

    We plan to launch in 10 different states, invest back into our next business venture, and prepare for our Canada launch within upcoming years.
