Revolution Beauty, the global beauty company, and maker of some of our favourite palettes, recently launched My Revolution, an on-demand beauty marketplace to connect freelance beauty suppliers to clients through a central app. This is designed to give more flexibility and visibility to the self-employed professionals who make up 65% of the beauty industry.
Co-founded by entrepreneurs Nicola Gunby and Jason Iliffe, My Revolution is available to all kinds of freelance beauty professionals, including accredited make-up artists, hairstylists and beauty therapists. They are aiming to reshape the beauty industry, freeing up your time to allow you to concentrate on your clients and your business.
What is My Revolution?
The state-of-the-art beauty booking platform already has over 1,000 beauty professionals on board and is set to transform the way freelancers manage their clients and their talent. Designed to help you acquire new clients and open up new revenue streams, it allows you to be discovered by potential clients, whilst also centrally managing bookings on the platform, in a similar way to salon booking services.
Say goodbye to back and forth responding to your DMs, email and text messages to schedule in your clients. You can also manage your bookings, take payments online and reduce no-shows by having cancellation policies in place. My Revolution can take care of your business and save you hours of time, it can even book in clients whilst you work and sleep. Look at the app as being your personal PA, giving you the time and resources to be your own boss and thrive in the industry. Accessible from any device, you can work around your lifestyle and be visible to millions of potential clients across the UK.
Nicola said, “As a previous makeup artist, I found out first-hand how hard it can be to find work and grow your client base when you’re just starting out or if you move to a new area. For those that work in professional salons booking platforms already exist, but if you’re self-employed, you spend so much time marketing your work and responding to direct messages and emails to gain clients. My Revolution is the perfect answer to this, providing independent beauty professionals all over the UK with an opportunity to market themselves and their talents on the same platform that a customer can browse, book and pay.”
Nicola and Jason previously founded AMB Beauty, an on-demand beauty marketplace. This was acquired by Revolution Beauty to create the My Revolution platform, which has brand new features for freelance professionals like you, including an easy to download app. This includes exclusive access to new product launches and the chance to feature on Revolution’s social channels with resulting content you create.
How It Works
The app is now available now for you to download and sign up. You can then start to use the features, book in your current clients and start to gain new bookings through the marketplace.
Available on iOS and Android, there are two options for beauty professionals:
- Premium subscription for £15 per month: This provides you with access to the My Revolution app, allowing you to manage all your bookings in one place. The app will also give access to marketing tools, insurance providers and be a part of the global Revolution community which means access to products as well as 20% discount on Revolutionbeauty.com. My Revolution will take a small commission fee of 3.4% per booking. My Revolution’s premium subscription will be free for a limited time only.
- Subscription free: This free version of the app provides professionals with the same features but with a 20% commission per booking. This option is for professionals just starting out who may not have a full diary but are keen to gain more clients and grow their business.
Nicola Wing, Group Strategy Director, Revolution Beauty, said, “Those who freelance in the beauty industry can spend hours replying to customers on different platforms, handling diary changes and dealing with cancellations. My Revolution will make this process so much easier, freeing up their time so they can focus less on logistics and more on what they do best. Our platform will also make it even easier for freelancers to be discovered by prospective clients, helping both emerging and established professionals generate a more reliable stream of income. We hope My Revolution will make an important contribution to the growth and support of the freelance beauty industry.”
