Entrepreneurship Opportunity For Women

Work from Home is something which most of  the young moms look for these days.
As they want to spend more time with their kids and family and at the same time want to utilize their free time positively , doing some work and earning a decent income.

I  was  also looking  for various work for home options , while researching for opportunities online came across lots of  jobs which claim to give decent / consistent income  throughout the year.
I applied to a few of  these was disappointed to see one has to pay joining fees to start working.
Later I came to know these are fraud schemes to lure  job seekers to pay money and evaporate.
I am happy that I didn't  fell prey to these schemes.

I have been hearing from few friends who sell women ethnic clothing on WhatApp & Instagram .
This has always appealed to me  but of  now a lots of  people  are doing the same.
While researching for more I came across this website  Leelan.com. It's Mumbai based and they are manufacturers and wholesalers  of women western apparel.

Since I  stay in Hyderabad  I wasn't very sure about it as I hadn't heard about the brand ever.
I looked on JustDial to make sure that they physically  exist and was happy to know they do.

I signed up to their website and my account got activated after getting a call from one Mr. Sameer  who asked me if  I am a reseller and I told him about my plans hesitantly that I do not have a store ,
Still he activated my account.

When I checked their store , the prices seemed very low , getting tops at a price of  Rs 100 or Rs 110 still seems abnormal or too good to be true.
I thought of enquiring about  COD option ( cash on delivery option ) .
I called at number 7666 662266 and enquired about COD , about which they said company does not do COD as most logistic companies in India  would not agree to 20Kg parcel to and fro. Though the logic was correct but red signal was everywhere.

They told me that I could visit  one of  their resellers in Hyderabad  to check the quality of products before placing order. I was happy to know they had resellers in almost all  major  cities of  India.

They don't  do  drop shipping as of now , so one needs to buy products of  minimum value of  5K to see the  checkout button  on their website . I am still on their website , adding & removing products from cart . I will start in a few weeks time.

For you guys , give it a try and if possible, convince the company to start dropshipping.

Some other note :

Leelan.com has successfully sold it's products online on Flipkart but discontinued to focus entirely on B2B .

Once you create an account with the website , your account comes for approval.
Once it is manually approved to make sure the registered client  is  further reselling , you have access to the wholesale price on the website .
You can check  their collection and make a purchase , minimum cart value is 5K.

So this way one can become a reseller and  it seems a good work from home option to earn extra income .

I am still checking  and figuring out  how to proceed and make this a good earning opportunity for me , Will come up with more details after some time in another post :)

Hope you all liked this post and found it useful .

How Do Beauty Bloggers Review Products

Being a  Beauty Blogger is not an easy task and I mean it.
Some three years back when I started blogging I used to buy products to review.
After six months of blogging when I started getting products from various brands for review , the first thought that came to my mind was " Beauty Bloggers are Testers " .
We need to test and try new launches and then give honest reviews ( Positive ones ) of  it on our blog.
Since my skin is bit sensitive , I was bit hesitant to try everything on my face, fearing it might cause breakouts. But work is work , needs to be done.
Then I started choosing brands which were offering Natural, Herbal &  Organic products as products from these brands are toxin free , have no or less chemicals and so are safe to use.
Still I do a Patch Test before applying anything on my face :)

In this post I will Share  " How Do Beauty Bloggers Review Products "

* Once we get  some Skin Care or Beauty  Products from a brand , we need to try it , use it for some time and then write a detailed review of it on our blog and social media handles.

* Upon receiving a product , the first thing I do is Click some good pictures of  it . So that I get clear pictures of  products as  many a times during usage the bottle/Jar/Container becomes  dirty and then Pictures are not too good.

* Then  I do a Patch Test .
I apply that product at  elbow areas and leave it for some time , if  it's  not causing any allergy or rashes , then it's  good and it means it suits my skin , So I can use it without worrying much.

* Next I start using the product.  If  it's a Skin Care product like some Moisturizer , Face mask , Scrub , Body oil etc  then we need to use it regularly for some good period of time like 15-20 days , as only after that we can come up with detailed & honest reviews . But if  it's a Makeup Product then by using it for a week or so one can write it's review.

* If  it's  a baby care product , then before giving it to my kids , I try those products myself , if  it's   good then I give it  to my kids to use or else not.

* After using the product for some time , We write it's review on our blog & Social media handles.

* Review post is a detailed one , includes all product details like Packaging , Shelf Life , Ingredient List , Price , Color , Texture , Fragrance .
Then how to use the product .
Next is Pros & Cons.
Most important is Personal Opinion about the product.

With all these details review post is ready and is shared on various social media sites so as to reach more people.

While writing review one needs to keep in mind to write an Honest Review, one needs to give details like  What they think about the product and brand, Quality of  Product , Price ( Is it too expensive or Okay ) , Most important  Is it  Worth Buying ??

Usually brands prefer and want  only positive and good reviews, ignoring the Con Part , but it's the duty of a blogger to give Honest Opinion about products as it helps others to make the right decision while buying or choosing a product or a brand.
Since readers do believe what bloggers write so it's our responsibility to give true & honest opinion.

So this is the way We ( Beauty Bloggers ) review products and share our experience and opinion about a brand or a product :)

Hope you all liked this post and found it useful :)
