One of our top makeup artists, Roopali Agrawal says, “A customer goes to UrbanClap looking for a makeup artist and specifies certain criteria like budget, event, location, and date, and UrbanClap sends them responses, within a few hours. As service professionals, I get more business because I only get relevant leads and I can then choose to work based on my convenience. UrbanClap allows me that flexibility.”
Speaking on the vast potential of this vertical, Abhiraj Bhal, CEO, UrbanClap, says, “Beauty is an integral part of our business which has the potential to generate $500 million in revenue for us down the line. The current focus is to aggressively increase service quality levels and push this category to occupy a 20% share of UrbanClap’s total business. With margins between 15-25% of the job size, we want to double down our efforts and create an empire out of this vertical.”
However, right now it is a very crowded space and as the largest player in the market, UrbanClap is actively looking at acquiring a player in this industry. Bhal continues, “We are looking to acquire a company in the beauty services sector which can help UrbanClap boost presence in this segment. We are in talks with several companies and assessing them based on quality of team and execution. This will be a strategic acquisition for us which will go a long way in helping UrbanClap realise its beauty services potential.” By using the UrbanClap platform to create entrepreneurs, we are creating opportunities for our beauty professionals to live fuller and more meaningful live on their own terms.
The long term vision at UrbanClap for the beauty vertical is to be able to have over 1 lac beauty professionals and 1 million requests on a monthly basis across the country. UrbanClap also sees a potential in partnering with some major cosmetic and beauty brand to white label these products through their services thus deeply rooting in trust and quality.
