Set Your Business Apart From Others

Madame Carteaux knew how to do hair, but what she also knew was how to make hair grow back, and even get rid of the gray, with her own formula that really worked.

With new knowledge comes new power. Use that knowledge wisely and stand out from the crowd, bringing all attention your way in order to utilize the best and least expensive mode of marketing – word of mouth.

Expand the Brand

In Madame Carteaux’s career, she created a product that was so good, that even without the internet, it was being sold overseas and nationwide. Back then, the only way to market was word of mouth and paper ads along with footwork. Let’s not forget the most important part of marketing – owning a dominating product.

This allowed Madame Carteaux to expand her brand. There was no question she couldn’t answer because she knew her product and studied not just her product, but people as well and their scalps.

Knowledge of all things about your product and how it benefits everyone will definitely lead to brand expansion.
