Keywords & Trends In The Online Male Grooming Market

Keywords and trends are a great way to make an impact in the SERPs, you can rank higher, and gain more visibility (and let’s be honest more money). In our free male grooming market report, we have split keywords into two sections: high competition and opportunity.

High competition keywords are those with high search volume, so high profitability, but are harder to rank for as all your competition are playing the field. Still worth going after though if you’ve got the authority. Some top picks are ‘electric razor’, ‘shaver for men’, and ‘men skin care’.

Opportunity keywords are those which are high search volume but no competition, so it’s a lot easier to rank high in the SERPs. Some of these are ‘beard growth kit’, ‘mens skincare set’ and ‘hair gel for men’. Here it’s more of the specifics and kits, so if you’ve got it, flaunt it.

With trends we cover both emerging and receding in our male grooming report, so you have all the information on what to cover to really jump on and rank high. Our top picks for emerging trends are ‘cutting mens hair with clippers’, ‘mens medium hair styles’, and ‘slicked back hair product’. A lot seems to be around style and look, these can be supported with PLPs or even supplementary content.

Using keywords and trends is a great way to gauge where to go with your SEO campaign, we have a lot more where that came from, just download our free male grooming market report.

Male Grooming Market Social Media Presence 

SEO within your marketing campaign is great, but why not go further and utilise social media marketing? In an online world, digital brand reach is essential. With all the noise online, breaking through and reaching your ideal customers is harder than ever. But with the right marketing strategy, you can really boost your brand name, products, and sales.

Within our male grooming market report, we give you social data among you and your competitors as well as an owned social score. Our top performer on social media is Clinique with almost 12 million followers combined on several platforms. Followed by Philips with 11 million. Both of these are huge brand names, and both dominate Facebook.

Clinique is smashing their social media, posting helpful content such as guides and blogs to their page, and posting video content. We know video is being pushed out on platforms, and they do it well, posting consistently and showcasing products within them. People buy from a brand they know works.

If you want to see how you’ve done on digital brand reach or social media, download our free male grooming report for all the information.

Reviews & Brand Reputation In The Male Grooming Market

With Google implementing their E-E-A-T algorithm, trust is more important than ever before. Alongside expertise, experience, and authority. If you want to get those solid rankings, you need to demonstrate you’re a website to trust.

One way to achieve this is through Trust Pilot reviews. If you can accumulate a number of positive reviews, showing them off is a good way to get on Google’s side.

Because of this, we have included a brand reputation league table in the report which details all the reviews of your competitors. With this, you can see who is displaying the most trust and how you can do the same.

Here are the top 5 brands that are crushing it in terms of online reputation:

  1. superdrug.com
  2. cultbeauty.co.uk
  3. harrys.com
  4. executive-shaving.co.uk
  5. gillette.co.uk

We can even see that although some of these have lost visibility, brand name and reviews keep them up and balance the scales.
