EOS Achieves A High Level Of Market Success

Investing in their own production facility was one way that EOS geared the success of their company in their benefit. EOS wanted to become a brand that could satisfy the needs of their customers and the demand for the product without having to rely on outside resources. The decision to invest in this core facility instead of hype marketing at the outset of the company helped them to build a more solid foundation.

When the time did come for the company to market their product they did so via heavy influenced marketing. They used the older advertising methods like magazine and television marketing, but also employed newer methods that would help them to reach a wider audience and their target audience, female millennials. They got in touch with those influences like widely watched beauty bloggers and let them create the magic. Just one or two YouTube recaps of EOS lip balm products taken at the suggestion of a trusted beauty YouTube video could reach several hundred thousand viewers.

In addition to influenced marketing on the internet, the ULTA sold brand also used popular celebrities to promote their brand. Britney Spears promoted the product as well as Taylor Swift for the Asian market, and widely hyped at the time Miley Cyrus used EOS balm in one of her videos.

Two of the founders of the company in charge of making marketing decisions made all the right ones. They hired the right people, asked the right questions and put their marketing initiatives in the right place. Their ability to ask questions and listen to what the market wanted and would respond to was the key to their success. Rather than an assumption, they really listened, and keyed into those inferences to really make it work and become a lasting brand rather than a lip balm fad. For more info, visit




Keith Mann: He Truly Cares And It Shows

It can be hard to find people in today’s day and age that care about anyone other than themselves. That might sound harsh and overly cynical, but that is what I have noticed far too often these days. However, my faith in humanity is restored when I come upon someone like Keith Mann. This is a person that has dedicated his entire life to helping people. As part of Dynamics Search Partners, he knows he is in a position where he can really make a difference and really help people out. He loves being able to do that and it brings him great joy.


One of his biggest project and something that means a great deal to him is his work with the Uncommon School Districts. He has been quoted as saying he wants to level the playing field and give everyone a chance, no matter where they come from in terms of their economic background. That should not stop them from going to college, pursuing their dreams, and having a great life. By holding fundraisers that raise over 22 thousand dollars, he is putting forth some real change in the lives of these young adults. For most people, they would tell you that all they want is a chance. If they get that chance, they are going to run with it and they are really going to do some wonderful things with it. They will not let it slip away or go to waste.


They realize that someone has gone to bat for them, believes in them, and wants to help them. Because of this, they do want to let themselves done and they do not want to let him down. This is about the future and if the present is protected, it ensures that the future is as well. Keith Mann is out there doing things.


Actions speak louder than words. That is said a lot, but it is said a lot for a reason. That reason is that every single bit of it is true. Talking is great, but when someone goes out and does something, that produces results.
