1. Loyalty

Private label branding is one way to build customer loyalty from people who like your products. High quality brands with limited accessibility to a large customer base help you gain loyalty from core customers. Your customers feel attached to your brand and product.

2. High Margins

Private label Branding is one way to separate yourself from competitors. One of the greatest attributes of private labels is that you inherently have an exclusive right to sell the products. If you market the brand well and create demand for it.  This contributes to your ability to charge premium prices.

3. Wholesaler

With the right quantity  you could operate as a wholesaler of your brand and offer limited access to other retailers who pay you premium acquisition costs for the right to carry your Private Label Candles This not only generates more income, but it also spreads the exposure of your brand even further. A relationship with a high volume re-seller can lead to more customers buying your Private label Candles.

Five reasons why I buy local!

 

 

What an honor it was to be featured in the March issue of Orange Coast Magazine a few years ago. There are times when I felt that our family owned business would not seen by the many. When we received that call from one of the editors from Orange Coast Magazine, we were honored.

Now let's address the Benefits Of Buying Local!

Why should we buy Local you might ask? Here are five good reasons:

1. It helps create jobs:  One of the reasons why I hire local artisans to make our Heirloom Artisan Candles is simply because I sincerely want to do my part to support local artist in my community here in Laguna. Small are the largest employers nationally and within our community.

 

2. You get get better as well as personable service:  Here at Laguna Candles we stand behind our product 100%. If you are not happy return it! Local business often hire people with a better understanding of their product.

3.It reduces Environmental Impact: Locally owned business can make more local purchases requiring less transportation. Which ultimately contributes to less congestion and pollution.

4. It allows you to invest in your community: Local businesses are owned by people who live in the community!  Local businesses are less likely to leave and more invested in the community's future. We have so created many private label candles for other companies.

5. It gives the local business the opportunity  to support themselves and the community: Several studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers and farms -- continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community. I hope you have a willingness to get to know our brand, and I would love to get to know and support yours!

The experience of fragrance and the candle!

Laguna Candles has always sought to bring one of the cleanest burning, Coconut blend candles to market. We spend hours of research with fragrance as well. Did you know that the essential oil from lemon helps with concentration and is also a natural insect repellent.  Lavender is beneficial in helping sooth headaches, sleep problems, anxiety and depression.  Jasmine is beneficial for calming tension and improving alertness.  Not just a candle but an experience!

2. You get better customer service. Local businesses often hire people with a better understanding of their product.

3. It reduces environmental impact. Making more local purchases requires less transportation which ultimately contributes to less congestion and pollution.

We have lived in Laguna Beach for over 20 years and owned our family owned business, Laguna Candles since 2003. Local businesses are less likely to leave and more invested in the community.

5. It gives the local business the opportunity to support themselves and the community. Studies have shown that when you buy form an independent locally owned business rather than a nationally owned business more of your money is used to support local business, service providers and farms, which continue to strengthen the economic base of the community.
