What I've learned from 7 successful female founders in the beverage space

I hope you loved the format last week, where we took a deep dive into the beauty space, because we'll be following in those footsteps again this week. Strap yourself in, as I take you through the seven biggest learnings our founders have picked up from hustling in the notoriously tricky beverage space, through a pandemic! Let's get straight into it. Learning number one is that your product absolutely needs to be great. The beverage space is ultra competitive, ultra crowded, and without an amazing product you simply don't stand a chance. This is one lesson that will always remain relevant, pandemic or no pandemic, your product just has to be really good.The second learning from digging through our beverage archive, is that you want to have real intention behind what you're building. What is your aim, or purpose? Your intention is your story, and that's what's individual to you. It's what makes you unique and sets you apart from the countless other brands.Lesson number three is all around using your network to your advantage, and not being afraid to ask those oh so important burning questions. Your network loves to help, and that's something a lot of you need to hear. It's time to say shush to that little voice of self-doubt that's telling you not to ask that question, and to stop being afraid to seem uninformed or even dumb. Knowledge is king, and you want to gain as much of it as you can. Go make that phone call. The earlier on in the journey you realize, the more you'll gain.Learning number 4 is to properly think about where those initial dollars are coming from. As Melanie, you might opt to look to those closest to you when you're raising those first dollars for your beverage brand. The key thing to take away here, is that raising no money always trumps raising stupid money. And there is a LOT of stupid investor money floating around this industry.Learning number 5 is a major one, and one that's been mentioned time and time again on the show. You should absolutely, without a doubt, create your beverage brand with a DTC model in mind.Which brings me to learning number 6, one some of us prefer to forget when embarking upon this wild ride. And that's that failure is inevitably part of journey. Obstacles are just part of this journey, and so are mistakes. The true mark of the entrepreneur is just that grit and perseverance. Daily hustle.And last, but certainly not least, is the learning that if you feel this burning passion in your belly, there is absolutely no reason not to get started on this immediately. That excuse you were telling yourself not to? Forget it. Those reasons are always going to be there.LINKS WE MENTION: Female Startup Club's InstagramDoone's InstagramDoone's TikTokIn sponsorship with Zyro, easiest to use website builder and eCommerce platformIn partnership with Klaviyo, the best email marketing tool for ecommerce businesses.Female Startup Club's YouTubeFemale Startup Club's Private Facebook GroupSay hello to Doone: hello@femalestartupclub.comFemale Startup Club + Clearco: Clear.co/partner/female-startup-club

A lot of the time as husbands and fathers we find ourselves in the mode of busy-ness, but that doesn't necessarily mean that we are productive. Being busy does not always equal that we are productive, but if we actually focus on productivity, we will actually lead a more fulfilling life.   The question then becomes, how do I actually do that? How do I not get sucked into these distractions and these other things that I could be doing but don't move the needle at all.    My guest, Demir Bentley, is a renowned productivity experte and co-founder of The Life Hack Method. He comes from a successful background in Wall St., being burned-out from working 80 hr. work weeks. The Life Hack Method is a methodology that combines accountability with hard-hitting productivity techniques that will get us to take action.    Demir has personally coached executives from Facebook, Google, Uber, PepsiCo, and Lexar. And his clients have added millions in revenue and saved thousands of hours after implementing his coaching.   Before starting Lifehack Method, Demir & his wife Carey worked in the CPG, government, technology and finance industries.

Daniel Smith enjoyed healthy snacks while studying at school. He loved flavored almonds - but what a mess! I’m sure you are familiar with that salty, greasy hand scenario when you finish off a package of Blue Diamond nuts, for instance. That’s how his idea for infused almonds came about. As founder and CEO of Recipe 33, Daniel set out to innovate a largely stagnant category. Through a unique, slow, craft process, Recipe 33 infuses nuts with flavors like black truffle, smoky serrano, cinnamon vanilla, and lemon rosemary. The infused almonds are not just a great source of protein, but perfect to enjoy while using your computer, phone, or tablet, reading a good book or magazine, or playing your guitar or video game. In today’s episode, I speak with Daniel about the recent Natural Products Expo show, his process for development at Recipe 33 and his marketing, distribution, and plans for the future. The “NexxtLevel Brands Podcast’ is hosted by G. Steven Cleere, Founder and “Chief Pot Stirrer” of NexxtLevel Brands. This show focuses on disruptors and thought-leaders from the Entrepreneurial Food, Beverage, and CPG Industry, but we also share tips from veterans and key suppliers that may help fellow CPG professionals achieve their goals. Discussion Points What are “infused” nuts? Did you plan to develop this product or did you look for space in the market? Recipe 33’s unique flavors are not meant to compete with huge players like Blue Diamond The unique flavors may need some introduction to consumers, how did you work through the pandemic without demos? Differences in Daniel’s business plan vs. reality What did you look at for distribution options? Recipe 33 future plans– new nuts, flavors, and functional snacks Business functions that Daniel outsourced as a solopreneur Daniel’s success being a “local” producer Expo west had an incredible turnout, 57K attendees? Did you see anything super innovative? Words to grow by: Discipline, focus, and put yourself in uncomfortable positions, don’t get complacent.

Julie and Casey chat with author, speaker, and angel investor Fran Hauser (author of Embrace the Work, Love Your Career and Audible's Best Business Book of 2018, The Myth of the Nice Girl) about building relationships, rejecting the idea that being nice makes you weak, how to stand up for yourself, the difference between "nice" and "people pleaser", and why founders need to take care of themselves.   Thank you to our Season 3 sponsor, Armoire!

If you're a founder/entrepreneur, are you jumping ahead to business model, marketing, partnerships, etc. before making sure you have an awesome product that consumers are delighted by?  You're skipping the most important step. Taking a breath, taking the time and energy to care for yourself and others makes the WORK better.  Compassion for ourselves and for other people makes us more productive, not less, and we need to bring more of it into our professional lives. You don't need to be the smartest kid in fifth grade (i.e. have all the answers all by yourself).  Build out your community and your network. Nice is a superpower - its "evil twin" is people-pleasing. Know the difference, and know when to stand up for yourself. Mini-Lesson: How to embrace your "toos".

If you were to set out to cut your caloric intake today, odds are pretty high that your mind would immediately go to what food groups you could swap out or substitute. But what about swapping out or replacing the beverages you consume on a daily basis? Lower calorie beverages are certainly nothing new, like diet and zero-calorie options have been staples of everything from Pepsi to Gatorade to Michelob for decades now. There are some though that are betting big that consumers are becoming bored with those antiquated options. Our guests today are Doug Walker and Jon Feld of Leisuretown, a CBD-infused sparkling water company.

7 learnings from the biggest names in beauty

Female Startup Club

Hey and welcome back to the show! It's Doone here, your host and hype girl.Thanks for tuning in to the solo episode for this week, where we'll be taking a deep dive into the beauty space, going over the biggest learnings our multi-millionaire beauty-founder-guests have gained from founding and building the brands absolutely killing it in their space right now. So Let's get straight into it. Learning number 1 stems from the dreaming phase. When you're n the very early days of imagining your beauty brand - and you're dreaming about the vision you have. And you're asking yourself what am I actually actually going to create? The luxury of being in this position is that nothing exists yet, because you haven't made it. You can literally create ANYTHING. So why not create your product in a way that will make your life a little easier down the road? When we look at successful beauty brands today, there are a couple of things that founders seem to have gotten right straight off the bat. My first learning is that you should create something valuable, you should create something beautiful and (nowadays) you should create something memorable or memeable. My second learning is that you absolutely want to be making that pre-launch effort, and you absolutely want to kick off with a bang. Start as you mean to go on. The truth of the matter is, beauty is SUCH a saturated space, and you need to give someone a reason to pay attention.The third learning, is to really think outside the box when it comes around to pitching your product to retail. Buyers in the beauty world are getting hit by constant blasts. There's so much out there, there's so much being created. Give yourself a chance by really making an impression. Ok. but I can hear you asking already. How to go about that? Amy Liu's story for getting Tower28 stocked in Sephora is a real cracker, and we'll talk through that in the episode.Lesson number four is all around not getting complacent when you do land your dream retailer. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely a win worth celebrating. Give yourself a huge pat on the back, and celebrate with your team. But it's by no means the finishing line. Getting in is the easy part, what's hard is getting the sale through.Which bring us to another area you can absolutely not get complacent in as a founder. It might not have always been the case, but today I can confidently say you would struggle to do well with your business if you're not leveraging this platform. If you listen to this show you know what I'm about to tell you. TikTok, obviously! In beauty, you're in such a fab position to do well on TikTok. So, that brings me to learning number 6, and one that lies particularly close to my heart. As a woman, if you're planning to be an entrepreneur, a pitfall i've encountered time and time again is this idea of perfectionism. So much of our paralysis comes from spinning in circles around certain things, when what we should be doing is just putting it out, seeing how people react, and then changing it. Get it out and iterate along the way. We are smart enough that we can always pivot, no matter what comes our way.And my last but not least learning from chatting to all these amazing women in the beauty space, is that all good things simply take time. We've heard time and time again, that it takes 0 years to reach overnight success. And it's okay it takes time. Let's get straight into it! This is me for Female Startup Club.And if you have something specific you want me to cover, just directly reach out on Twitter or InstagramDoone's InstagramIn sponsorship with Zyro, easiest to use website builder and eCommerce platformIn partnership with Klaviyo, the best email marketing tool for ecommerce businesses.

The Story of a Brand
Betterly - Work with the Best-of-the-Best in Digital Marketing

The Story of a Brand

Play Episode Listen Later May 12, 2022 27:54


This episode is brought to you by Sendlane.     Betterly is all about marrying two concepts that don't traditionally live together - the marketplace and community, says Alex Bocquet, founder of Betterly, a freelance marketplace for digital marketers in the U.S. "One of my favorite things about working in an agency was the community - the camaraderie between all of the people who worked with me," Alex says. "And certainly when I started to freelance more and left my old agency job, I lost that sense because I started to distance myself not in the Slack channel anymore." The ideal customer for Betterly's services is the traditional "bread and butter" e-commerce brand that sells an actual product - a CPG brand, Alex says. "Now, that's not to say that it's the only thing they're able to do," Alex says. "I think lead generation is also a big one, whether it's directly through a funnel for your sales team to go and close or whether it's an app in-store. It's anything direct to consumer that's trackable. We can make sense of a cost from the freelancer and its marketing versus the tangible return on that investment." As for the typical revenue of a customer, Alex says it's usually between a pre-revenue startup situation to an eight-figure brand. "These are the brands that either don't want to sign up for an expensive, long-term commitment agency, or they're simply brands that are also seasonal," he says. "There are seasonal brands that come to the pipeline that just want to use a freelancer for three months without the commitment." As for trends in the freelance marketing space, Alex says he still sees many e-commerce brands that don't have an SMS funnel setup. Another trend is the proliferation in the use of TikTok. Brands seem unable to repurpose content or use influencers on TikTok effectively. In Part 2, Alex talks about: * The joy of community. * What the ideal customer is for Betterly. * Why a company would prefer a short-term freelancer to a full-time staff person. * What onboarding is like. * The current "low-hanging fruit" of the freelance marketing space. Join Ramon Vela and Alex Bocquet as they break down the inside story on The Story of a Brand. For more on Betterly, visit: https://betterly.io/ Subscribe and Listen to the podcast on all major apps.

If all DTC companies were forced to turn off Facebook ads, they'd be dead on arrival. Why is that? They over-invest in paid acquisition and under-invest in retention. Luckily, Sendlane makes it easy to solve this problem. Sendlane is an E-Commerce Customer Experience Platform helping hundreds of DTC brands to tighten their existing customer relationships.

Each formulation of adaptogens, antioxidants, and terpene botanicals is tailored to key areas of human function like sleep, immunity, energy, balance, and overall cognitive performance. Plants survive and thrive by releasing endogenous biochemicals that help them flourish under various circumstances (some of them really extreme) and many of those plant botanicals can help humans perform at their best, too.

Why do some teams work well together and others don't? When your team works well together, they are more productive, deliver better results, and have more fun. When your team doesn't, there are often delays, finger pointing, and lots of escalations to HR and upper management. I hosted Kris Malkoski on the show, who has been an international business leader for more than 30 years as CEO, COO, President and VP/GM in public and private branded CPG (consumer packaged goods) and hardlines companies. She shared terrific insights on how to make your team work more effectively for the long haul. Then she backed it up with incredible stories for product innovation that you won't want to miss! In 2020, Kris Malkoski joined Newell Brands (NASDAQ: NWL) as CEO, Home Solutions, managing global iconic brands including Rubbermaid, Calphalon, Ball, Food Saver, and Yankee Candle, and driving over 50% revenue and operating income growth, despite COVID headwinds including inflation, labor and supply challenges. As a member of the Newell Executive Team, Kris oversees $2.6 billion in revenues and over 8,500 employees. She's also served as CEO of the Americas for Arc International and President and COO at World Kitchen, transforming global revenue and profit from a seven-year decline to five years of significant growth! She began her career at Procter & Gamble and previously served on the boards of Fluidmaster; Trustmark Mutual Insurance Company; and Banfi Vineyards. Kris has also participated on not-for-profit boards, serving as President for the Hinsdale Center for the Arts and University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, and as a board member for the Cincinnati Ballet (marketing committee chair), University of Nebraska Foundation (governance committee) and CARE Women's Advisory Committee.

Today we're hearing an incredibly inspiring story from Nitasha Mehta, a woman I met in New York who works in the CPG space for a company called Boxed. And why I wanted to share this story with you is to show you how much impact you can create in the world, even without jumping straight into starting a business. I think it's an important reminder that you can create significant impact at your place of employment; with resources and support at your fingertips.Nitasha's an experienced digital marketer with over 15 years of expertise in e-commerce, product marketing, CRM, and shopper marketing. She currently heads up CPG Brand Partnerships at Boxed, working directly with over 60 CPG brands. She's extremely passionate about technology and equal opportunity, and she launched the RethinkPink initiative at Boxed--which led to Boxed becoming the first and only US retailer to take a stand against gender pricing inequities. She has also been involved with legislation and has testified in states that have introduced bills to repeal the Tampon Tax, 3 of which went on to repeal the tax, as well as joined Congresswoman Jackie Speier in her Pink Tax Repeal Act.I'm so inspired, and I hope you are too.LINKS WE MENTION:Nitasha's Instagram Nitasha's LinkedInFemale Startup Club's InstagramDoone's InstagramDoone's TikTokIn sponsorship with Zyro, easiest to use website builder and eCommerce platformIn partnership with Klaviyo, the best email marketing tool for ecommerce businesses.Female Startup Club's YouTubeFemale Startup Club's Private Facebook GroupSay hello to Doone: hello@femalestartupclub.com
