However it is fair to say that digital marketing as well as other newer methods of marketing such as SEO.  Traditional marketing methods have typically taken on older technology such as tv or radio. However since the rise of YouTube and Facebook these social media platforms are becoming dormant and having little impact compared to their digital age rivals who have much larger and engaged audiences.

Many  marketing firms have been taking advantage of the fact that these platforms have started becoming so popular and have come up with their own unique ways in which to make good progress in reaching larger audiences. One way in which they have done this which has been highly effective is through viral videos.

Is Entrepreneurship Dying Off?

Entrepreneurs are people who endeavour to start their own business from scratch and continue building and innovating as much as possible. In the current world we live in there are many large companies which seem to shadow and dominate much of the worlds industries. In addition to this many businesses are collapsing on a daily basis due to more competitive markets and increased costs.

What Motivates Entrepreneurs?

There are a number of different factors that can serve to motivate entrepreneurs.  One of the biggest factors is money and success. However in order to achieve these goals a large amount of time money and effort is required and there is often large risks attached unless the business has been established for a long time prior to this. Entrepreneurs can also be motivated  by previous entrepreneurs that have been highly successful.  Richard Branson is one of these and he started his business back when he was 16. He later went on to found virgin music , virgin Atlantic , virgin trains amongst many other franchise and became a highly successful multi-millionaire. However some would argue that it is difficult to use him as a role model because the business environment has changed so much since when he started his businesses. This begs the question as to whether entrepreneurship as we know it is changing and potentially slowly dying out?

Stiff Competition

Many sectors are dominated by large firms which enjoy the largest part of the market share. Companies such as Apple , Google and amazon hold a strong grip on many markets and are simply so big that becoming a competitor of them would take an incredible amount of resources and time. So what alternative do entrepreneurs have in this environment other than to use the larger firms services? An example is Amazon. In order to sell goods online there are a number of different ways in which you can do this. One of the main ways you can do this is by selling on Amazon. However amazon takes a cut of your earnings as they are providing you with a platform. Another platform that could be used is ebay. Ebay only charges seller fees on business accounts with high sales so to get started in online selling this may be the better option. A third option of course is setting up your own website/online store. This is probably the most costly and time consuming out of all the options available to you.  Although having said this is if you can establish a gap in the market for a certain type of product then it could be highly successful.

Conclusions

Overall to conclude there are a number of different things that can be concluded. Entrepreneurs face a variety of different challenges that they need to overcome in order to be successful. Many of these challenges are things such as increased business rates, competition from larger firms and also  a reduction in consumer spending overall across the board. In order to counter these issues there are a number of different resources new entrepreneurs can use for help. Business gateway is an example of this as it provides grants and low interest loans to new businesses to help them get a foothold in the business world.

Why Lip Fillers Are a Thriving Business that Just Keeps Growing

Having facial fillers, specifically lip fillers, has become one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments over the last few years. Although lip augmentation has been going on for over a century, the lip fillers we know today hit the market in the early 2000s. Plastic surgery, as it was previously known, was generally looked down upon by the public and embraced by only a handful of people who evidently had silly amounts of money. You could tell someone a mile off who had work done as they carried rather frightening ballooned features, typically the breasts and lips. Today, thanks to advances in modern medicine, cosmetic surgery is ubiquitous amongst not only the rich and famous, but normal, everyday working people too.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Modern-day lip filler is Hyaluronic Acid based component which is injected into the lip in order to give plumping effect. Hyaluronic Acid is a compound which is found in the body, therefore it is completely safe and provides a more natural look compared with the Trout Pout of filler’s past.

Before and after images of lip fillers done at professional clinic in Glasgow.

Why Do People Want Fillers?

As we get older our face starts to lose volume, and the lips are no different. So lip fillers can help someone to look younger, but mostly it’s because mainstream beauty standards tell us that plump, full lips are attractive.

Why Did Lip Fillers Become So Popular?

Most of you will have already guessed it, but a very young, famous celebrity is the culprit behind the lip fillers craze. Kylie Jenner, the youngest daughter of the Kardashian family started one of the biggest beauty trends for the masses at aged 17. Kylie was never known for her beauty up until 2015. A pre-teen living in the shadow of older sisters Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Kendall must have been difficult. All of a sudden, Kylie appeared to have the perfect pout that was much plumper than it had been just weeks previous. It took the young reality star several months to admit to having filler through fear of being judged. Who would have guessed that just three years later, after skyrocketing lip filler enquiries and procedures all over the world, Kylie Jenner would be a fashion icon, own her own multimillion beauty empire and be the youngest person in history to be featured on Forbes Celebrity 100 list.

The Lip Fillers Business

Now that lip augmentation can be done non-surgically, the treatment is readily available in non-medical establishments. Of course, professional training is required, but clinicians and beauticians without PHDs can legally implement this treatment. A combination of demand and mass supply has allowed lip fillers to become affordable for your average working Joe. Of course, it is recommended by experts that you choose a doctor over beautician. Despite being an extremely safe procedure, experience and knowledge of the body are essential for a safe recovery if anything goes wrong. In the UK lip fillers can cost anything between £200 and £1000, depending on where you go.
